TikTok star Jon-Bernard Kairouz INSISTS using whiz kid math to predict NSW coronavirus cases

TikTok superstar who correctly predicted Sydney’s Covid numbers for five days ASSUMES that he uses whiz kid math and gets no leaks – while revealing the complex equation he uses to guess the daily cases

  • TikTok comedian claims he can predict NSW case numbers with math formula
  • Jon-Bernard Kairouz correctly guessed the state’s Covid numbers for five days
  • He insists he is not getting any inside information from the state health department

A TikTok comedian, famous for accurately predicting the numbers of Covid cases in New South Wales, insists he uses a complex math algorithm and doesn’t rely on leaks from the health department.

Jon Bernard Kairouzo, who calls himself the People’s Prime Minister, has correctly predicted the state’s rising number of cases for the past five consecutive days.

The prankster told Channel Ten’s The Project that he and his brothers calculate the numbers using the “Kairouz probability algorithm.”

Jon-Bernard Kairouz (pictured on The Project), who calls himself the People’s Prime Minister, has correctly predicted the state’s rising number of cases for the past five consecutive days.

When the show’s host, Jan Fran, pressured him about how he’s doing, Kairouz said it just comes down to simple math.

“We’re lucky because not all complex calculus has one particular solution, but we’ve been lucky enough to get five in a row and we could get Michael Jordan numbers tomorrow,” Kairouz said, referring to the six championships of the American basketball great.

In his viral social media clips, Kairouz is often seen drawing nonsense diagrams, statistics and equations on a whiteboard before giving his eerily accurate predictions.

“The diagrams are called homoeomorphic irreducible trees and that’s combined with all the other variables we include, such as Fairfeild’s diameter and Southwest Sydney circumference,” he told the panel, holding a gold wrestling belt over his shoulder.

“We also take into account the contagious community cases and then we can derive a concrete figure that we would like to bring to the public.”

Fellow comedian and host Tommy Little admitted he’s a huge fan of the young man’s shtick.

“I like the belt and I like the People’s Premier,” Little said.

“I think we can all agree you’re crazy about this math thing, but to be honest I don’t care.”

Two days earlier, Gladys Berejiklian was questioned at a press conference about whether NSW Health had a leak and whether she was concerned.

“Right now I know a lot of people who would have all kinds of information and that’s welcome, we live in a democracy,” she said.

But as speculation grows about how he might be able to come up with his seemingly magical numbers, Kairouz said he’s just trying to enjoy the process and his newfound fame.

“I have a ball,” he said.

“I’ve been creating content on Instagram and TikTok for about a year now and growing exponentially on the social platforms has been a lot of fun and it’s been a whirlwind of a week.”

He says he will make his sixth consecutive prediction on Sunday evening.

Online sleuths have been desperately trying to figure out how the TikTok prankster makes his predictions.

He makes the forecast around 10:30 p.m. most nights.

NSW Health officials aggregate the number of positive cases from each day until 8pm – giving him two and a half hours to hear from each source.
