Trump, reframing the crisis, says he's now seen a study that shows 2.2 million people could've died if they did nothing, so "if we can hold that down to 100,000...maybe even less," it'd show they did a "good job."

While the curve for total cases in Italy hasn't yet flattened it has become linear. This means that the number of daily new cases is not increasing The next step is getting that number to decrease.

Bad news: # of confirmed cases in NYC is now 32,308 with 678 deaths.
Less bad news: a week ago, # of cases was doubling every 3 days. Now it is every 5 days.
This week will be key: shutdown started 14 days ago, so it should be starting to have an impact.
