The lockdowns are WORKING: Daily deaths begin to fall in the US after four weeks of social distance; two million deaths averted

Driven largely by the numbers from New York, daily deaths from the Wuhan coronavirus have peaked in the USA and may be headed for a slow downward trend over the next six weeks. This is, of course, due to the social distancing “lockdowns” that were put in place from March 15th – March 20th, breaking the cycle of exponential spread of the virus.

It now looks like we may be able to keep total deaths in the USA under 60,000 by the end of July. Had no lockdowns been initiated, there would have been over 2 million deaths by July. The lockdowns, in other words, have averted at least two million deaths by July.

Interestingly, had the lockdowns been delayed by just one week, the estimated 60,000 deaths we will experience over the next few months would have been 240,000 deaths. That’s because the number of infections in the USA was doubling about every 3.5 days, meaning there are two doublings in a week. So 60,000 x 2 x 2 = 240,000 deaths.

Similarly, had the lockdowns taken place just one week earlier, the estimated 60,000 deaths we are going to experience could have been reduced to just 15,000 deaths (because 15,000 is 1/4th of 60,000).

When it comes to exponential growth, timing is everything. Every day counts. That’s why we were sounding the alarm in early March, urging President Trump and state leaders to initiate the lockdowns as soon as possible. Had the lockdowns taken place on March 1st instead of around March 15th, the deaths could have been reduced to 1/16th of what we’re facing now, or just 3,750.

Although the media is trying to blame Trump for all this, the truth is that any governor could have initiated a lockdown at any time, so the blame for acting too late should actually be applied to all the mayors and governors, too. In truth, all the “leaders” were slow to react, and most remained in a state of denial for far too long.

Many conservative publishers now claim the lockdowns weren’t necessary because they worked

Sadly, we are still dealing with conservative indy media outlets that still fail to grasp the importance of the lockdowns as an early intervention. One broadcast host that I covered yesterday believes that the regular flu has a 10% fatality rate and kills 9,600 Americans each day, on average. The real number is about 95, or about 1/100th what that host is reporting. Amazingly, the people saying the flu kills 9,600 Americans per day still don’t realize their numbers are off. They insist the regular flu kills 10% (it really only kills less than 1 in 1,000), and they refuse to look at the obvious errors in their bad math.

The number of people who die in the USA from all causes of death combined is normally about 7,700 as you can see from That’s all causes: Cancer, heart attacks, suicides, pharmaceutical side effects, shootings, car accidents, etc. That number does not include covid-19 deaths, so over the last few days the actual total deaths in the USA has been closer to 9,500+, since covid-19 has been killing between 1,800 and 2,000 per day (although yesterday it fell to around 1,500).

    Is it me or am I alone in wondering why Mike Adams isn’t defending our liberties and freedoms? His article seems to be praising martial law even though the MSM admitted the infection rate is inflated. Covid-19 is a lie.

    It’s a complete sham and it would seem Mike must be shilling for the shitbags. Everyone’s new favorite phrase social distancing, washing our hands while singing happy fuckin birthday saved us from a virulent deadly virus? That’s dandy, will that save us from MASS STARVATION Mike?
