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.
Fair enough Dr. Chitwood. I did say it was my opinion your posts were scary and I also said I believe you to be an expert in medicine as well as value your input.

I have been merely asking your opinion on the possible death toll in America because you have in fact been giving your opinion on other aspects of this crisis.
Morality does not derive from consensus. It only comes from one place.

Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall.

Often times unbelief is disguised as wisdom
