Please note that of the 21 so far diagnosed in Galveston County, none have required long-term hospitalization at this point. If the proportion used of an 80/20 split of those who suffer only mild symptoms versus those who require hospitalization is valid, we should have seen a minimum of two and maximum of four already hospitalized.

Too small a sample? The same thing happens when we rely on projections from disease locations that have next to nothing in similarity to us to guide our response. The only difference is you didn't have to crater the economy to see where the fallacy was in my reasoning.

So 3 days ago the count was at 21. Today it’s 49. I hope they all have only mild symptons
