  1. For a somewhat better understanding of Dr. Loannidis’ work and concerns, read: https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/17/a-fiasco-in-the-making-as-the-coronavirus-pandemic-takes-hold-we-are-making-decisions-without-reliable-data/ . The data set shown is one theoretical interpretation of extrapolated information from data collected under difficult and limiting circumstances; although, it may be close to the best the scientific community can do for now.

    • I’d need to go back and re-read the article, but it seems to me the Dr. did say this information was obtained from a interpretation of extrapolated information from data collected under difficult and limiting circumstances.

      Happy Gardening
