Let's see if these flatness grades really are predictive of the future.
Right now, the US, China, and Italy all have similar numbers (80k) of confirmed infections.
1. The model predicts that in a week, the US will have by far the most (360k) whereas Spain will have 160k and Italy 130k. In other words, the US will have more infections than the #2 and #3 countries combined.
2. The total number of infections will be around 1M in a week.
3. The model also predicts that about as many people will die this coming week (26k) as have died so far (24k).
4. And Spain will join Italy as the countries with the most deaths.
I'll check back in a week to see if these grim predictions were accurate.
