Within a week America will be the Coronavirus capital of the world.

That's what the figures show. America will have more cases than China, and yet Trump expects it to be over by Easter. Sorry about the language, but he's a fucking idiot.

Two nations have got this under control, China and South Korea, because they took rapid action including contact tracing, massive testing, compared to USA, where it is still hard to get tested for most people. We trail the rest of the world on testing and wasted time to let the disease spread, largely because of poor leadership. We are going to be having thousands of deaths a day and he thinks things will be better in 19 days.

2. Not in terms of cases / million. Italy 1,144; Spain 853, USA 160.

3. What is the current trajectory of those numbers?

In addition, we know the number of cases in the US is vastly understated because testing has been so difficult for many people to get.

The US will reach Italy's saturation at 390,000 cases.
