Seasonality Could Likely Flatten Exponential Growth Rate of Coronavirus in Coming Weeks If Not Days

There is a lot of gloom and doom these days, and that for good reason;  we live in a fallen world and the bible has foretold of a time of great upheaval coming on the earth.  Besides this, we only need to look at the history and we see the millions upon millions that have died from plagues, wars, poverty and crime and have to wonder, why are we so special to escape these?

But there is also a reason for hope and a direction to turn in both the good times and the bad;  "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."  -W.E.


One of the biggest problems in much of the analysis is the assumption that viral infections are open-endedly exponential.  But significant data refutes this.
The Gateway Pundit reported earlier today on the declining mortality rate as warmer weather moves in.
There is much research that has confirmed the seasonality of viral infections.
Specific research in China concluded that major factors include temperature and humidity:
This means that the exponentiality of a viral pandemic is often mitigated by seasonality.
The China curve was exponential, then linear, then flattened. There were 3200 deaths in a country of 1.5 BILLION.
In the US that would extrapolate to about 700 deaths total. This season there have been an estimated 23,000 deaths from the seasonal flu according to the CDC.
There is no basis for the claim that corona will be more deadly than the flu.
Our current situation is that foot race between exponentiality and seasonality. Fortunately, our curve started later, magnifying seasonality. The primary indicator of the beginning of the end will be when the number of daily deaths declines.  That will be the beginning of the flattening of the curve, signalling that the number of infections is about to peak.
If we are not careful, we will do hundreds of billions of dollars of economic damage unnecessarily. 
Please keep informed and distribute accurate information to those you know.
And thanks to Gateway Pundit for their efforts to provide that information.
