John Hopkins will be herding the US public toward the cliff April 6-10, 2020

Let’s predict this coming week in the US using the methodology of COVID-19 in Italy Part II:

  1. Click Italy on the left menu of the John Hopkins map.
  2. Click the Active Cases tab at the bottom center.
  3. Click the Daily Increase tab at the bottom right.
  4. Hover your mouse over the longest chart bar.
  5. Observe that March 20, 2020 – 17 days ago – was the peak of Italy’s daily increases in COVID-19 cases.


Have you seen this reported anywhere or investigated? I heard on the April 5th coronavirus task force briefing that Italy’s daily deaths had gone down. Even non-health professionals knew that should have happened – with a lag time – since March 20th.

Can you find daily deaths or daily recoveries on the map? No, John Hopkins has those daily numbers but doesn’t display them. It’s not a difficult programming task to put two more tabs at the bottom right and display daily deaths and daily recoveries.


Let’s find the US numbers using similar steps:

  1. Click US on the left menu of the John Hopkins map.
  2. Click the Active Cases tab at the bottom center.
  3. Click the Daily Increase tab at the bottom right.
  4. Hover your mouse over the longest chart bar.
  5. Observe that April 3rd – two days ago – had been the peak of the US daily increases in COVID-19 cases todate.

No daily deaths or daily recoveries to inform us of trends such as daily recoveries compared to new cases. Instead, John Hopkins’ user interface features cumulative deaths that panic the public.

I’ll guess the US public isn’t John Hopkins’ customer, regardless of who pays them. John Hopkins is one of the herders – acting on behalf of their real customer(s) waiting at the bottom of the cliff for the herd’s demise.

All that’s missing to complete the picture is giving John Hopkins horses and torches.
