      As for the lack of Testing Well according to here
      https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

      We have done 1.9 million tests, twice as many as the number two country (in this case Germany).
      Furthermore this is an increase of 125,000 over yesterdays numbers, This is roughly 4 million tests per month at the current rate.

      Well the county I live in has done 1,400 tests and found 88 cases (of thoughs only 4 are in the city I live in, most of it is at the other end of the county from me).

        The US has also 4 times the population of Germany. So, you better see the last column instead which shows the number of tests per million of population. Germany has twice the number that the US has. Also, in the beginning even Greece had more testing per million of population than the US even though Greece detected its first coronavirus case later than the US.

          Interesting how Per Capita matters sometimes, just not when it's Italy.

            Italy is much ahead in the curve, so obviously they had more time to use and accumulate a big number of tests. In a month or so, the US will also have a much higher per capita test, and the number will keep growing as more time passes.

              I don't either.

              One of the nation’s top public health officials suggested Monday that because Americans are taking social distancing recommendations “to heart,” the death toll from the novel coronavirus will be “much, much, much lower” than models have projected.

              “If we just social distance, we will see this virus and this outbreak basically decline, decline, decline. And I think that's what you're seeing,” said Robert Redfield, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control.

              “I think you're going to see the numbers are, in fact, going to be much less than what would have been predicted by the models,” he said.
              We are not now that strength which in old days
              Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
              Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
              To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
