    The Joe Rogan Podcast #1439 will make you poop your pants

    The guest, "Michael Osterholm is an internationally recognized expert in infectious disease epidemiology. He is Regents Professor, McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair in Public Health, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health, a professor in the Technological Leadership Institute, College of Science and Engineering, and an adjunct professor in the Medical School, all at the University of Minnesota"

    The research his group is doing CONSERVATIVELY estimates:

    • 48,000,000 HOSPITALIZATIONS (currently 6,938)

    • 96,000,000 CASES (currently 227,573)

    • 480,000 DEATHS (currently, 9,303)

    • OVER THE NEXT 3 - 7 MONTHS.

    • NO VACCINE ANY TIME SOON

    This pandemic has followed their models thus far so they expect it will continue to do so, resulting in the above numbers

    This shit is just starting. It's no joke. It can be spread with ZERO symptoms so treat everyone like they are infected unless they have been isolated for 14+ days. They are fairly certain that the primary infection vector is airborne, so while good hand practices are important, keeping away from people is the only way to make SURE you don't get it

    The thing that has me worried is the number of ICU beds available vs the conservative estimation of how many they will need. Yuuuge difference.

    This thing has such a range of symptoms I'm not convinced I don't have it already.

    Yes. And so many idiots are still not taking it seriously. You’d think they would if not for themselves, than for their grannies or for medically fragile children. No dice though. Arrogant til the end. I still keep hearing (in texts, I’m not interacting with anyone) “it’s just like the flu! Do you know how many ppl die each year of the flu?” Of course these ppl can’t seem to understand percentage vs numbers. CV death *rate* is much higher. Just as bad are serious complications or even moderate complications that will need some medical intervention in a system that cannot handle the numbers we’re about to see.

    Honestly, since I work on planes, I MUST consider the likelihood that I already have it, because I haven't been apart from passengers for more than 14 days.

    I pretty much consider myself infected, even without symptoms (and I'm sure everyone else does too considering my profession)

    If a sickness has no symptoms, is it really a sickness? I operate under the assumption that everybody has it, including myself, but so what.

    Because of the spread. That's going to be a big killer of those who are vulnerable -- asymptomatic spread
