RE: A failure of prediction?

in #coronavirus3 years ago

I think I've heard of SARS1 but my thoughts were that it was handle pretty well. There was a danger of it becoming pretty serious in Nigeria where I live, but well I guess it didn't, do is it starting to suffice again? If it's currently beginning to show up again I feel that since predictions hasn't really worked out don't you think we have a cause to fear?

Sort:  

I'm more concerned at how "predictions" can be wrong and off by such wide margins. As the number of cases and deaths start flattening and declining, a lot of people will use that as confirmation that everything was blown out of proportion and that the lockdown wasn't worth the damage to the economy. In reality, we know that the initial predictions were off both on the upper and lower ends and in quite a number of cases, by a huge margin.

I don't think people should be hysterical at this point. I do feel that the worse is behind us but that should not be a ticket to complacency. Opening businesses back up and "restarting" the economy doesn't mean that life can just return back to normal.

The economy will get going again when people feel safe again. Remember, the economy is us.

The economy will get going again when people feel safe again. Remember, the economy is us.

This is definitely true, I however feel that time will tell irrespective of the unforseen circumstances that might arise, the worse is behind us. And this just shows that we need to be proactive going forward when the world sees the end of this threatening viruses to humanity.

Thanks for the content.
