Fun With Math Part 2 NBA and Senate – 3,272,000‬ US cases of COVID-19? Rand Paul, Tests Positive

When I penned the tongue in cheek statistical extrapolation using the two infected House of Representative members to predict 1,222,429 US cases of COVID-19, that was before Rand Paul tested positive in the Senate. The math for the Senate extrapolated out to the US population is far easier with 100 members of the Senate. 

The new extrapolated total for US infections is 3,272,000‬ if we use the Senate.


Or we could use the combined Senate and House of Representatives together. That’s a sample size of 635 and three cases so far. Or an infection rate of .47244094488189‬ percent. Multiply that times the US population and we get 1,545,826 infected people in the US.

Take your pick.  We can do the same math using an NBA (4 members of the Brooklyn Nets, 2 Lakers, 3 76ers). No matter which data set you use the likely reality is that the infection rate in the US population is a LOT higher than anyone is able to measure (low testing rates) or willing to admit.
