Experts at Coronavirus Briefing Warn Again of 100,000 to 200,000 Deaths; Trump: ‘Hard Days Lie Ahead…Very Tough Two Weeks’

Monday’s White House Task Force briefing on the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus was quite somber as the projected deaths of 100,000 to 200,000 deaths of Americans in the next few months was discussed President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci. Trump warned the nation about “the hard days that lie ahead”, adding, “We’re gonna go through a very tough two weeks.” (Update: Trump later said it could be three weeks.)

The demeanor of the press corps changed from the combativeness of the previous two days as Dr. Birx displayed modeling charts that showed where the nation stood at the end of March with mitigation efforts so far compared to the nightmare projections of over one million deaths if nothing had been done.

ABC News reporter Karen Travers, “The tone at this White House coronavirus task force briefing feels different than all prior COVID-19 briefings: grave, sober, grim, realistic. Trump: “I want every American to be prepared for the hard days that lie ahead. We’re gonna go through a very tough two weeks.”

Trump has extended the government’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus to the end of April. Fauci and Birx told reporters that the predicted deaths of the models are not set in stone, but can be affected by the mitigation efforts.

The somber demaeanor of the briefing was noted online: “The body language by Trump-Birx-Fauci is different tonight.” “I hate to think of the briefing they saw.”

Absolutely unfounded speculation. Fauci has interests with vaccine manufacturers – so typical of the USA health “oligarchs”. For the true state of affairs refer to “Swiss Propaganda Research”, an updated compilation of statements from leading health experts – real experts, like Giulio Tarro, Germany’s Robert Koch Institute, Pablo Goldschmidt, John Ioannidis, Sucharit Bhakdi, Peter Gøtzsche, and many others.

As shown in this article, a recent study by the CDC regarding the use of both social distancing and self-quarantine shows that both practices are not particularly effective at reducing the spread of coronavirus:

These two methods are, however, very effective at destroying an economy and reducing our freedoms.


“Not very effective” defies common sense.

“Trump has extended the government’s efforts to
slow the spread of the virus to the end of April.”

If Trump wanted a genocide of the elderly and the homeless,
he could not be more deadly and evil.
1. Preventing carona-virus testing to the greatest extent he can get away with.
2. Doing nothing to enforce social distancing.
3. Encouraging governors to end social distancing and restart their economy.
4. Refusing to end shortages of medical equipment and supplies by enforcing a new law created for that purpose.


It was Biden that sought to gut Social Security payments throughout his career. I think you should take it up with him.

The rich keep the working-class without healthcare and eating a junk food diet,
as a sick population is ten times easier to control.

The models that are discussed above, which produce outlandishly high death tolls are produced by a group of big tech and DNC donors with extremely high political biases: This model predicted 10 deaths in Anchorage by March 23. On March 23, we had 0. As of today, the model is predicting 150 deaths in Anchorage. As of today, we’ve had 3 (one of whom was a actually in Seattle, but only had a legal residence in Anchorage), but the model is predicting 150 deaths here by April 15.
