I think if you go back and read every one of my posts, I have expressed fear about the outcomes of this pandemic, and said that it is the scariest situation I've seen since becoming a physician in 1982. But I've not claimed to know how many people will be afflicted or killed by the virus.

I'm as knowledgeable as any other fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians about the aspects of the pandemic that have been made public. But I have NOT been predicting the absolute worst. I've only said that this crisis has the POTENTIAL to be very serious, and that rosy predictions of minimal problems by many at the beginning of the pandemic were almost certainly wrong.
