Epidemics in a Nutshell, Part 3

Part 2 (link to Part 1 is there).

And a new post from Mr Fumento, this time at Issues and Insights via Powerline. I’ve included this quote from the longer text that was quoted at Powerline.

Then Fauci finally said it. “I’ve spent a lot of time on the models. They don’t tell you anything.” A few days later CDC Director Robert Redfield also turned on the computer crystal balls. “Models are only as good as their assumptions, obviously there are a lot of unknowns about the virus” he said. “A model should never be used to assume that we have a number.”

Which, of course, is exactly how both a number of public health officials and the media have used the them.
