Covid-19

I have an associate who works at the MITRE Corporation, a Federally Funded Research & Development Center (FFRDC). FFRDCs work on assignments from government agencies to tackle challenges to the safety, stability, and well-being of our nation. The best known of these is the Rand Corporation.

Long ago, I worked for MITRE on the development of the Model Cities Program, and while MITRE and I were not a good fit, I found the people I worked with were highly trained capable scientists, data analysts, and medical professionals, doing good work.

The MITRE medical team that projected the trajectory and consequences of the Ebola outbreak, has published a white paper, which analyses existing COVID-19 data. It also has a set of recommendations for individuals and the country. Given all the noise in the newspapers, on television and on social media, I found this summary very helpful.

Follow the plan and help those in greater need.
