Reminiscent of erroneous global warming computer
models, those created by overzealous Technocrats for
COVID-19 have proven to be just as bad, but because
they are 'scientists', they will not be held
accountable for their folly.
Coronavirus Hospitalizations Lower than Predicted - NY Marks 75%
The number of people hospitalized across the United States as a
result of the novel coronavirus illness (COVID-19) is reportedly
only a fraction of what some health experts projected a few days
On Monday (April 06), New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo
told reporters that in his
state alone, the epicenter of the viral outbreak in the United
States, new coronavirus hospitalizations dropped by about 75
percent, from 1,427 four days ago to 358 on Sunday.
Highlighting the drop in new hospitalizations in NY, the state
hardest hit (131,239 cases; 4,758 deaths as of Monday) by the coronavirus,
Alex Berenson, former New York Times reporter who has
been following the U.S. outbreak closely, observed on Twitter on
"It's over, guys.
It's already over."
Jim Malatras, an aide for Gov. Cuomo, reportedly indicated that
projections are now showing that New York is unlikely to need
110,000 hospital beds, as previously thought.
The new forecasts show "a much lower demand" that stands in the
estimated 20,000-30,000 range, Jesse McKinley, the New York Times
bureau chief in the NY capital of Albany, wrote on Twitter on
That means the new projections for the number of hospital beds
needed in NY are between about 70 and 80 percent lower than
On Monday, Gov. Cuomo acknowledged that the drop in hospitalizations
in combination with other signs, like the fatalities remaining flat
for the second day in a row and a drop in intensive care unit (ICU)
admissions, suggest a "possible flattening of the curve."
Citing the figures contained in the White House-touted models
created by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at
the University of Washington, the Epoch Times noted on Sunday:
While tens of thousands are hospitalized across the United States
due to COVID-19, the numbers are a fraction of what experts
predicted just a few days ago.
The main reason appears to be that
the [IHME] projections were already off the day they were released.
Given that states with available data had a current hospitalization
rate around 6 to 20 percent, if each of the no-data states had a
rate of 20 percent, the hospitalizations for the whole country would
add up to some 47,000 as of April 3 to 4.
The IHME model expected about 114,000 to 181,000 hospital beds would
be needed nationwide on April 3, and roughly 120,000 to 430,000 on
That means the number of hospitalizations across the United States
earlier this month was much less (at most about 40 percent of the
forecasted figure) than the number predicted by the IHME model.
Amid the ongoing pandemic, health officials are relying on computer
modeling that takes known data and makes predictions to inform and
drive the decisions of private businesses and governments across the
Statistical models attempting to predict the impact of the Chinese
coronavirus, including the ones created by IHME, rely, at least in
part, on polluted data from the Chinese Communist Party, Breitbart
confirmed last Friday.
A growing number of experts - including Vice President Mike Pence
and members of the Whitehouse Coronavirus Task Force that he leads
- have questioned the legitimacy of China's official coronavirus death
toll and infection rate.
Anonymous members of the U.S. intelligence community allegedly
that China has been hiding the severity of the viral outbreak within
its borders, under-reporting both total cases and fatalities linked
to the disease, Bloomberg
reported this week.

The IHME predictions for New York also reflected a discrepancy
between the institute's forecasts and the actual number of
IHME predicted that NY would need 41,000 to 58,000 hospital beds for
COVID-19 patients by April 1.
Even by April 3, New York needed less than 16,000 hospital beds, the
Epoch Times noted.
The IHME model only got its hospitalizations forecasts right for one
