The IHME computer model (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation),
which Trump frequently cited in the early days of the pandemic before its
predictions became too dark and too accurate for his taste, says 160,000
more Americans will die of COVID-19 between now and December 1, but if 95%
of the people wore face masks when they went out of their houses there
would be 66,000 fewer deaths than that. Could they be wrong? Sure, but they
are one hell of a lot more likely to be right than you or I are after
studying the very complex science of epidemiology for no more than 20
