    That's nothing but guesswork. No one know how or if the coronavirus will be affected by weather/climate/temperature. I'd bet everything I own that they won't have this under control by April (or Easter). I'm all for positive thinking but this whole "let's get things rollin' by Easter" idea seems more like reckless nonsense.

    It's not just guesswork. It's actual lab tested science. It's not that the virus is "killed" by the heat, it's that the transmission rate drops because you have to be closer to people to get it when it's hot and humid. "By April" is still 40 days from now ... I think it's completely likely the new cases rate will be falling by then.

    a) literally the second sentence of the article you linked to states this:

    "While influenza virus has been shown to be affected by weather, it is unknown if COVID19 is similarly affected."

    b) 40 days from now would be "by the END of April", a week from now would be "by April"

    I wish there was a hell so I could take comfort knowing Mitch will rot there one day.

    Carter but everyone hated him, so go figure.

    Jesse Jackson was better than most give him credit for too.

    This is why all the data in the world is only as good as the person’s ability to analyze it. Despite knowing this, not a single expert is saying everything will be OK by April. Why do you think that is?

    Yesterday was the deadliest day for the corona. Today will be even worse. It will be the 12th straight deadliest day for the virus.

    I don’t know how else to put this: this is a big deal. Stop trying to trivialize it.

    But the economy has to be back in full swing by Easter so that Trump doesn't lose re-election.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    sounds like they are guessing... they have some authority in guessing though

    Current data, although limited, suggests that it is extremely unlikely that the spread of 2019-nCoV would slow down in the USA or Europe, due to environmental factors, because a large number of cases have already been reported in the range of AH and T experienced by these regions for most part of the year.
    The data analyzed here are rapidly changing and with several unknowns including how the virus is mutating and evolving, what are the reproductive numbers and the dominant way of spreading. If 2019-nCOV is indeed sensitive to environmental factors, then it could be used to optimize the 2019-nCoV mitigation strategies. Our results in no way suggest that 2019-nCoV would not spread in warm humid regions and effective public health interventions should be implemented across the world to slow down the transmission of 2019-nCoV.

    His question was around not being sent to hell good. I think those drone strikes might cost Obama.
