Re: What is Borisism?

People have been outing themselves as bedwetters for years. Now they are outing themselves as children who need spoon-feeding ! I love social media!

Re: How good or bad are the panic warning models?

Re: Models for Covid-19

Logistic function better. Or an asymmetrical version of it. Why? Better at what? Nothing special about this function, meiner meinung nach. The logistic function comes out of many math biol models (as well as other fields), including some epid. models. Or it's at least a decent approximation to what...

Re: Models for Covid-19

I think most people who died from Covid-19 on the  Diamond Princess were over 70. Over 70s made up about 30% of the passengers. Now assume all passengers had the virus (although only about 20% actually tested positive).  You get a death rate of 0.35% of infected. Now take Singapore. They have had ga...
