I Have Something To Say About Coronavirus / Covid19

Here is just some rough stats I looked up and calculated.

Italy is currently .02% of their population having died given all ages of the population. (That's 12428 deaths into 60.4 million people)
Italy looks to be roughly 1 month ahead of the USA for an outbreak and response.

Italy has a population density average 510 people per square mile
The USA has 87 people per square mile.
New York City is 28400 people per square mile
Los Angeles is 8000 people per square mile.

Density makes a big different but it's still hard to say.

New York's population is over 8 million while Italy is over 60 million. If New York City alone gets more deaths than Italy then it looks pretty bad.
New York City is already at .02% deaths. (That's 1550 died into a population of 8 million)

If the US holds true to Italy at 0.02% deaths then in one month we should expect 65,000 deaths.

That's pretty good math
