US coronavirus death toll blows past 100, with 7,300 infected while global infections surpass 200,000 … and many Americans still remain in a state of total denial

The coronavirus continues its rampage across America, with over 7,300 now confirmed infected (remember when it was just 15?) and 107 confirmed dead. With numerous cities now under lockdown conditions, substantial social distancing factors have been put in place which will significantly slow the spread of the virus over subsequent months, but the reality is that most of America acted too late and we’re going to see a surge of infections and deaths for the next 3-5 weeks, no matter what happens today.

The stock market is in a dizzying, lurching spasm cycle that’s bleeding trillions of dollars in assets every day or two, and the Federal Reserve seems prepared to fire hose financial institutions with insane levels of cash in the hopes that making the rich richer will prevent the whole damn system from going down in flames.

Meanwhile, prominent conservative publishers, radio hosts and Trump supporters have retreated into a bizarre state of flat Earth-like denialism, now claiming the entire coronavirus pandemic is a grand, elaborate hoax that somehow 100+ nations are faking. In fact, the very same people who told you a month ago that the coronavirus was a deadly bioweapon released to achieve global depopulation are now saying the entire thing is a hoax and nobody is dying, they claim. (The doctors and nurses in Italy beg to differ, of course…)

The websites with the best reporting on all this continue to be, and News aggregation sites with excellent coverage include and There are also many strong independent writers who are doing great reporting on this, including Daisy Luther and Dave Hodges. (Apologies if I’m leaving worthy sites out of this list, just trying to keep this really brief.) InfoWars and The Gateway Pundit have gone into full-blown denialism now, and they are both actively reporting that the coronavirus infections and deaths are all faked. The Gateway Pundit’s narrative is starting to mirror communist Chinese propaganda, claiming that China is all back to work now, and everything is under control there.

Let’s take a look at the numbers:

Here’s the animation map of where the cases are spreading in the United States:

And here’s how the deaths are mounting up in the USA, already blowing past 100 deaths:

Over the next month, it will be thousands of deaths, then tens of thousands. What happens after that depends on how the USA decides to react. Strong social distancing will result in much lower deaths. But a lack of social isolation will lead to hundreds of thousands or even millions of deaths. The Governor of California is now preparing the public for a declaration of martial law, as we had previously anticipated would occur.

Here’s what the NYT shows could happen with just a 30% infection rate and a 2% fatality rate:

Yes, that’s two million deaths in the USA. If we all agree to self-isolate, we might be able to reduce that to only a few hundred thousand, but that’s yet to be seen.

The deaths that are already “baked in” and will occur over the next five weeks or so

Even with the strong social distancing measures now put in place, there will still be a wave of hospitalizations and deaths over the next 5 weeks or so due to the lag time for deaths to occur.

If we have so far confirmed 5,000 infections in the USA, there are almost certainly another 25,000 who haven’t yet been tested, given the lack of availability of test kits. Conservatively, this means we are probably close to 30,000 infections right now.

At a 2% case fatality rate, this will translate into 600 more deaths in the next five weeks (i.e. by the end of the third week in April).
