Media Covid Forecasts Alarmist and Wrong

From Youyang Gu, data scientist at MIT, on Sep 15: "Here is how our US daily deaths forecasts from 3 weeks ago have done thus far, compared with the most-cited model in the media. 20 days in, the true results have already fallen out of the confidence interval of the IHME model. They are now projecting out until 2021 (108 days)." #MachineLearning #covid19 #coronavirus
