Joe Biden Oct 25
We are not prepared for a pandemic. Trump has rolled back progress President Obama and I made to strengthen global health security. We need leadership that builds public trust, focuses on real threats, and mobilizes the world to stop outbreaks before they reach our shores.

On the per capita one, about where Austria is. Lower than US but higher than Germany.

Surely with major budget issues, the opposite will happen.

Sweden's strategy only makes sense if you believe that there will never be a vaccine. If you do, then it makes sense to minimize deaths now so that they might be saved later.

And 0.57% in Bergamo, Italy. As you say, a lower limit since not all infected.

4500 on the scale is deaths *per week*. 5200 is total *excess* deaths.

If you read the small print on the April 26 chart, it does say that in Italy it's a subset.

While Italy fatalities clearly going down overall, don't overinterpret Sunday counts. In April, Sunday always lower than Monday. Tuesday usually highest as weekend deaths are properly recorded (as it is in the list above).

On Tam. According to Paul Samuelson: "John Maynard Keynes once was challenged for altering his position on some economic issue. “When my information changes,” he remembered that Keynes had said, “I change my mind. What do you do?”
