New York Times Projects 33,000 McHenry County Coronavirus Infections

Based on March 13th data, the New York Times has projected that 11% of McHenry County residents will contract Covid-19.

Counties throughout the nation have similar projections.

Here are the specifics for McHenry County:

Cook county is only projected to see 8% infected.

For some reason, McHenry County has the highest projected infection rate.

Lake County was at 10%.

Kane County, Cook County, DuPage County and Will Counties are at 8%.

Commenter “Oh” offers the following:

“If you are going to report on this stuff, do your job the right way. 33,000 IF NOTHING IS DONE TO STOP THE SPREAD.

“KIND OF A BIG DETAIL YOU LEFT OUT THERE!

“Too many dumb people follow this thing and won’t click on your link.

“The projections are based on what controls are put in place.

“Thankfully, JB has taken steps to slow the spread. With some control measures, that number goes from 33,000 in May to 1,300 in May.

“You MIGHT want to edit this post immediately so that you are accurately regurgitating what you read.

“At least you included a link because I have long given up on your ability to see a news story and accurately explain what the story says.”

  1. Give it a rest “Cindy”.

    This Andrew Coffey video you linked of him driving around McCormick Place on a Sunday, looking for trucks like was used in a movie was at best premature. The McCormick Place plan was only announced on Saturday, and the shots WLS-TV shot whenever are the same ones Coffey shot on Sunday of an empty McCormick Place.

    The article says the plan was to convert McCormick Place into a 3,000-bed hospital, not that the work had started.

  2. THIS IS WHY I SAID IT IS SO DUMB TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT THE ZIP CODES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT NOW BECAUSE IT IS HERE IT IS SPREADING LEARN ABOUT EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND HOW IT WORKS AND THE ZIP CODE EFFORT IS GOING TO BE MEANINGLESS IN ANOTHER COUPLE WEEKS IF ITS NOT ALREADY OMG WE HAVE TOO MANY STUPID PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY.

  3. Cal – If you are going to report on this stuff, do your job the right way. 33,000 IF NOTHING IS DONE TO STOP THE SPREAD.

    KIND OF A BIG DETAIL YOU LEFT OUT THERE!

    Too many dumb people follow this thing and won’t click on your link.

    The projections are based on what controls are put in place.

    Thankfully, JB has taken steps to slow the spread. With some control measures, that number goes from 33,000 in May to 1,300 in May.

  4. The tests are nonsense.

    So many false positives.

    Different versions of tests with different methodologies….. a total of 7 different in the US as of now, new ones, supposedly refined coming.

    Canadians don’t even want the US tests, they ask for the Swiss and German ones, reject the American as unreliable.

  5. Who needs projections from the fake news, liberal, deep state, democrat friendly New York Times when we have this sunshine blog featuring satan herself shedding light into the darkness about this issue and encouraging us to walk around the neighborhood hugging everybody in sight? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug your neighbor, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  6. Why does their modeling predict that a less dense area will have more infections than a more dense area given that close proximity increases chance of infection?

    And why would the economy even open back up if only 10 percent or so were infected?

    Didn’t the Spanish Flu infect 25-30 percent of the population?

    Seasonal influenza infects more than 10 percent of the people every year, and the scientists say this is more infectious than regular influenza.

    A lot of things aren’t adding up.

  7. 33k is still nothing compared to the useful idiots who vote DEMOCRAT.

  8. Nobody tells my sunshine blogger how to do his job! I say leave him alone. Think what you want of him; an irresponsible parasite, an irrelevant loser, a laughable source of gossip and confusion, an instigator of hatred towards immigrants and public employees, and so forth. But has anybody taken the time to think about the courage it takes to put away so many plates of free lunch and dinner in the name of journalism? Think again before you criticize him. In the end, the job is not done until the Northwest Herald disappears from the face of this county. So I say to my sunshine blogger, keep up the good work and carry on the torch of journalism until the end of times…or until the next free meal, whatever comes first. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug your neighbor, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  9. As a loyal sunshine compassionate conservative, I will be very satisfied with my six-times-bankrupt, sexual-assaulter-in chief’s job until the number of positive cases reaches 330 million. Otherwise, we are fine. Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, hug your neighbor, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww…

  10. Agreed, Cindy AKA Pam Whitsen should give it a rest. She comments on this blog, but doesn’t even live in McHenry County!

  11. Cindy is correct.

    Something isn’t right about the scare porn the ms media is pushing.

  12. DALA? You are a very sick person. You have been out of your mind for a very long time. I feel sorry for you. Your fantasy world is getting really old. It is about time for you to change your screen name again because you have (just like always) outed yourself yet again. Everyone knows that you make things up and it is so sad to see you keep pushing to be noticed. You know nothing and you continually make things up. Sad. Really, really sad.

  13. They have to keep this going until all the PPE being made is purchased

  14. Who in the world would believe the NYT when they have Chicken little on TV every second blaming someone for his self plight ! on not enough…

    Grow up Chicken Little you sound worse then Fred Flintstone ! and that’s pretty bad… sew your undies up around your pie hole, we are sick of listening to you..
