Yes, that was one of the takeaways I got as well and that has been communicated previously by the scientists. As a person who does computational modeling (not for this obviously) as part of his research, I would hate to wish that a model gives bad predictions but lets hope this one (along with several others which actually have worse predictions) does and it is overpredicting...
Computate state to state.
The modeling is vastly better for the majority. That said the impact on New York And Jersey are terrible.

The weird thing is, there are many who are infected who don't know it because their symptoms are absent or mild but are contagious. There are also some, maybe many, who are walking around with immunity, in theory, because they have already had the virus. It would be good to know who's immune. That's a test we need as well. The corona test, if positive, just means they send you home to quarantine, something many of us from the saner states, are already doing anyway.
Its not weird its a plan. If they announced everyone may have this disesse could have been worse pandemonium. Shelter stay safe is a calmer way of protecting the masses.

I wish they had a figure for the total infected in each state which would give me a better idea on how safe it will be to be out and about (e.g. playing a softball tournament) at a certain date. All the resource usage tells me is the number of cases which are serious enough to be hospitalized, and I am sure that is correlated with the number of total infected, but I do not know what that correlation is.

Of course these are just models so who knows what the reality will be come May/June/July...My kid is only 10, if she misses
a season or two it isn't going to be the end of the world.

A study in Iceland showed that 50% of the cases they've found so far have no symptoms at all. Granted the sample size for an island in the middle of the Atlantic isn't the best place for it but would explain how it gets out of control so quickly.

Another issue is not all states are testing at the same rate so the model I gave may be underestimating things for those states (my state, OK, for example)

Keep your eyes on China's "2nd wave". If it develops we aren't playing until next spring earliest. Still hoping and praying for June 1st game!!!

Ha! As if we will ever get any verified accurate data out of China!! Those guys are the ones that got us into this mess. We are on our own here, can't depend on them. They have never ever lived up to their end of the bargain on any agreement they have ever entered.

My point was that it's strange that there are people who have immunity and don't know it. I didn't say there was anything weird about the "plan".
