  1. These CCF models had the peak in mid June WITH the distancing staying in place since Mid March. Those have been discounted.
    They also predicted 100,000 dead in Ohio in March WITH distancing.
    Then 10,000 dead in April.
    Their models have been WILDLY off.
    And unfortunately the public health people have been bludgeoning the politicians with freakishly wrong modeling
    which has led to scaring the public to death and closing businesses indefinitely (there is no real plan to open them in Ohio, even as of today).
    So now we are at around 500 dead in OH, and that is counting PUI (possibles) and real lab positives. Not 100k, not 10K. Ouch.
    So I’m not sure what the CCF is shoveling again, but I would be wary of any modeling by them.
