Human intelligence may not be enough: US military turns to machine learning algos to predict food shortages

I'm not super sure you can rely on US numbers in the same way as for countries with a national health service (and a functional government)

Are they 100% testing homeless deaths or even people who die outside hospitals?

Is the coroner office / cause of death reporting in small towns as rigorous as in NY?

Once this breaks our of big cities into rural areas where fewer people have health care, the health care infrastructure isn't as great and people are less able/willing to stay at home - it could get a lot worse
