Linear is good because it is easy to go to sub-linear. At that point, the exponential is less than 1, and we would expect a termination of this nightmare.
We have eliminated all venues where a super-spreader could peddle their wares. There are just a few sleazy companies around that are maintaining an office staff for non-essential work. I know of one, and I hope they get the big 2x4 to the head.
At this point, you can relax at home in your self-isolation. Take daily doses of cannabis oil. A good immune system comes from the lack of stress, and the elimination of all inflammation markers. Give up smoking for the next few weeks and pile on the cannabis oil with lots of cbd. You need lung capacity to survive this.
The media will keep trying to raise anxiety, which is what they live on. Don't fall for it.
I suspect that the numbers will keep up linear since we are getting a lot of people returning from travel and Florida beach parties.
ps. media reporting 78 new cases, but I only count 50 on the site. Wish they would have a chart, it's not obvious to find, and the media would push higher. This is still linear. If it doubled every day, that's exponential. Also, the sleazy company has to close. Yeah!
pps. there's a lot of 'travel' on the list as people come back. I don't know if I would count that, but who knows?
more: okay, that was 28 in the morning and 50 in the afternoon.
