The infection rate continues at around 30,000 new cases per day with no drop detectable by objective measures.

So if we still are not yet reducing the rate of infections and we have an ever growing death rate, how can we even be giving consideration to opening businesses, churches, schools or other public places?

What else do we need to do to get the infection rate to drop... or more accurately, what are we doing wrong?

Using this site to view info by country I don't see any areas that are better or worse than others in regards to the change in the rate of new infections.

https://geodacenter.github.io/covid/map.html#

A very few counties are noticeably dropping, but they are mostly low numbers to begin with. A few places still have rising new infection rates like San Francisco, Chicago and New York. What's up with that???

So if the new infection rate is not dropping for the US as a whole, why are people clamoring for reopening the country for infection? Do people want this disease to spread wildly?

I saw pictures today of some of the rallies. Many were not practicing measures to prevent infection. I would say we can expect a spike in the infection rates in a week or so, but I don't think there really were enough people there to make a difference.

The new infection rate has reached a plateau. But we don't know if this is a peak or not. With states starting to reopen currently closed facilities, we may see a resurgence even before we see a down turn in new cases per day.

To me opening the country up at this time is like playing Russian roulette with an automatic.

For the record, I'm not a fan of, nor do I even think it remotely appropriate, to participate in a "Let's re-open the economy" rally like this while being openly armed with semi-automatic rifles. While I'm sure the situation is financially dire for lots of folks living paycheck-to-paycheck (etc..), we're nowhere near the point where the guns "have" to come out. To me, it's a stupid show of force for no reason.

How many of those people protesting do you think actually understand what is meant by "exponential rate of growth"?

There's a reason why we don't let everyone make every decision for themselves, but have laws that apply to everyone.

I get that people are tired of what's going on. I'm fucking sick of it. But I don't want to catch the virus and I have friends who I don't want to catch the virus. Some of them don't have much choice. If their company tells them to come to the office, they have to go to the office. One is working in food distribution. He was working from home, but only part time. Now that Maryland is in shut down he works from home every day. He should stay there until we get the new infection rates at least down to low double digits.

Instead of people protesting that we need to open up businesses, how about protesting that we aren't doing enough to stop the spread of this virus? From the time China had their outbreak grow rapidly on Jan 22, to the time they had the new infection rate under 100 a day was just over 6 weeks!!! The US infection rate was significant 6 weeks ago and we are still seeing 30,000 new infections per day!!!

Yeah, this is a perfect time to open things up and let the virus roam free! I guess there are a lot of people who don't realize the isolation measures are the only thing preventing us from seeing the exponential growth resume.

It's actually a show of force by people who are demonstrating that they they can't think straight.

The whole point about sensible gun-control laws is that they don't stop people owning guns, they merely keep them out of the hands of people who would use them for socially undesirable purposes - the kind of people who would have been kicked out of a well-regulated militia because they couldn't be trusted not to shoot other members of the militia because they were silly or careless.

How many people here think that physical processes can grow
exponentially forever?

Maybe name some.

I'm spicing and testing a circuit now that has exponential growth.
Hope that I don't get a nuclear explosion that kills everyone.

Economic growth has been exponential for quite a long time, but of
course sustaining that requires continually moving the goal posts, i.e.
the definition of economic output.

Don't worry, CERN created microscopic black holes that are eating the
Earth already. ;)

If one allows negative exponents, an RC decay is exponential virtually
forever (ignoring quantum and thermal effects). So, a physical
process that 'grows exponentially forever' can be an RC decay, viewed
in the inverse voltage as the dependent variable.

Count me in.
Spice it if you don't believe it.

So grows = decays now?

Hang on to that resume for a while.

"Exponential" is the popular term (used incorrectly) for the initial
growth of the sigmoid curve defined by the logistic function:

<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logistic_function>

Enough with your childishness.

Now rather than quibbling about which word we should use to describe the
growth function, can we please address the question:

"How many dead (or lifelong debilitated) people is too many?"

Or don't discuss it, if you don't want to. The USA has turned
irrevocably into a practical demonstration, for those like JL who prefer
experiment to analysis. To everyone's loss...

Who mentioned "forever"? That was *you*, I think.

"Grow to an unacceptable level" is quite enough to worry about. By the
time you start to hit the limit on available resource (population in
this case) it's already *far too many*.

You keep raising this completely spurious "grow forever" thing, only
because you have *no better argument*.

As is obvious to every reasonable person reading your posts.

Of course I knew that, and was castigated for saying same. Nothing
grows exponentially forever, or even for very long. The 1918 flu was a
bell-shaped curve in most places, but with a steep chopped-off tail.
The curves that I'm seeing for this one tend to have long tails.

Sadly, nobody lives forever. We constantly trade lifespan for other
things. My question has been, what's special about this virus? On the
scale of winter killers, it's modest. Even this years seasonal
influenza is killing more people than C19 but we didn't shut down the
economy in much worse flu years.

And deaths are being counted as C19 by assumption only.

Well, several people told me that I didn't understand exponential
growth. When the slopes were already getting linear. Now they are
mostly flat or declining.

Antibody testing will tell what fraction of a closely confined
population will get it before it burns itself out. A few uncontrolled
experiments suggest something in maybe the 25% range, maybe less.

Countries that started Mid-February are typically a few weeks past
peak, and some are way down. Start to peak looks like about a month.

Has anyone noticed the periodicities superimposed on many of the
new-case curves? Looks like about a week, and many show three or four
good bumps so far.

And there is sometimes a huge spike on the same day all across the
world.

The jhu site is great. Zoom up onto the USA on the map, then select
"incident rate" and "testing rate" and compare the dot patterns.

Seek and ye shall find.
