How many people will die due to covid spread over memorial day

How many people will die due to covid spread over memorial day
I mean long term. People who catch it from people who catch from people who get it on Memorial Day. Chain reaction could last for years. Maybe decades.

How many deaths will it end up being that will trace back to Memorial Day?

Take a guess.

Probably less than you think, since your government doesn’t seem to be any more serious about contact tracing than they are about any other aspect of this pandemic.

Not how many recorded.

How many for real.

You asked how many will ‘trace back to Memorial Day’.  But since you seem to be looking for a number, I’ll go with 342,816.

The US death toll has just topped 90,000 (officially, though I suspect more). While the *reported* toll appears to be tapering off, I suspect the predicted toll of 200, 000 isn't unrealistic, especially with the number of idiots flauting rules about masks and gatherings.

I don't know how many will die due to gatherings on a specific holiday weekend, but my concern now is a second wave due to the bloody idiots.

Yes, the real number is almost certainly higher, due to paucity of testing.

Thanks for hazarding a guess. It could be ten times that. It depends on how long this virus stays with us.

What if in one single die in the 80’s we infected an entire football stadium full of people with HIV?

Why would you do that? What would make you even think of that?

I’m concerned about both.

I work in a restaurant that’s a madhouse on Memorial Day weekend. If I don’t have it already there’s a great chance I’ll get it then. If not then there’s the repeated chance of catching from coworkers who do get it that day.

It’s certainly be going around that weekend.

Because it would be homicidal. So is being 100% open for business on Memorial Day in a place that isn’t making any effort to take precautions. And that’s the kind of place I live.

Our behavior, down here in the south, is going to be killing people until (if) a vaccine is distributed worldwide.

We’re worse than suicide bombers. They only kill people in one time and place.

Unfortunately, it won't be just the stupid ones.
