Mike Adams releases downloadable “Pandemic Projection Model” spreadsheet – get it HERE and run your own coronavirus scenarios
03/09/2020 // Mike Adams // Views

We are now releasing the downloadable Pandemic Projection Model ("Adams Model") spreadsheet, Revision 2, with new features:

  • You can alter the starting assumption values to test different scenarios of where the coronavirus pandemic goes in any given nation or population region.
  • Fields that can be altered include R0 value, mortality rate, and # of infected individuals on day one.
  • New feature: "Social distancing suppression" value allows you to suppress new infections by a percentage you choose. This helps take into account school closures, travel bans and personal contact habits which are already being altered.

You can now download the spreadsheet at this link:


The file format is .xls, compatible with MS Excel and Apache Open Office (free software from Apache).

You will also need to unzip the zip file, of course, after you download it. You can use a utility like 7-zip (7-zip.org) to achieve this.

Once you download the spreadsheet, you may immediately begin altering several variables to test the outcomes they will produce. All rows showing # of infections, # of deaths, etc., are automatically updated (as in any spreadsheet based on relational formulas).

If you use this spreadsheet or cite its numbers, please give credit to Mike Adams, Pandemic.news / NaturalNews.com.

New projections show only 1.1 million deaths in the USA by July 4th if social distancing achieves 25% suppression

The projections of this Revision 2 spreadsheet typically do not match Revision 1, since we have simplified some of the calculations. This has resulted in typically a lower total fatality projection. One piece of good news in this projection is that if you enter an R0 value of 2.4, and use a social distancing suppression value of 25%, there are only 1.1 million deaths in the USA by July 4th.


You are free to modify the values in the spreadsheet yourself, and to republish the spreadsheet as long as you give proper credit to the author.

If you notice any calculation modeling errors in the spreadsheet, please inform us via the NaturalNews.com feedback form so we can improve it for Revision 3.

Additional assumptions in the model:

  • The model assumes individuals who are newly infected become infectious themselves the following day, and then remain infectious for exactly 14 days, after which they either become immune (and non-infectious) or die (and are therefore non-infectious).
  • You can change the 14-day window in this spreadsheet by altering the references starting with cell E41 which references C27 (notice the difference between the row numbers is 14). Because of the "lag time" calculations, you have to manually alter these cells yourself to create whatever lag time window you want to simulate (such as 10 days, or 20 days). These changes must of course be carried to all subsequent cells in the spreadsheet.

Feel free to run your own projections. Try R0 values of 3.0 or higher to see what happens (if you dare...)

Stay informed. Read Pandemic.news.

Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
