COVID IN THE USA: REALITY IS A HARSH PLACE

COVID19:CONFIRMED_US   COVID-19 CONFIRMED US
Tradingview has some amazing data on COVID. This chart is of importance for long term investment purposes (see fat disclaimer below).

Importantly this is about total of all cases infections and deaths . Some may say that's meaningless. But there are important features on the chart.

Say what you see! I'll say what I see.

If the war on COVID was being won, one would expect to see at least clear plateaus. That makes sense because it means there is no massive set of new cases to increase the total. I hope folk get the point.

Watch the red arrows.
1. On death total - it's accelerating. Certainly no plateau.
2. On case total - it's accelerating. No plateau.

Of course this does not mean that the numbers won't plateau. The point is that the trajectories and the power of the numbers means they're not winning the war.

A plateau would probably have been expected in the post-vaccination era. Some say, the plateau is coming soon. How would they know. Do they know the future better than everybody else?

All I know is what I see: There are no plateaus.

Do we stay with evidence or do we believe rhetoric repeated in lamestream media? Well, the choice is yours.
