Funny (serious) article explains how Jiang Zemin is behind the pandemic. Oh, and he also killed Frank Plummer!

Not seen any updates of the totals for a few days, has everyone either died or got better?

Media cycle has got bored, and do have we. Reported cases and deaths per day have fallen slightly (but still nearly 100 deaths per day); global spread is slowly creeping up; China started reopening factories and reducing road blocks in recent days. 

 

Recent large studies continued to show about 2% mortality, increased rates in older patients (8% in those over 70, 0% in under-10s).

I believe the deaths figure has gone over 2000 but no confirmation.

SARS was 774 for those keeping score at home.

Then it's a big jump to 2035 confirmed deaths from swine flu.

 

Closing in on swine flu death toll , death toll will probably surpass it today. What's next? lol

 

Really taking hold in Japan and South Korea. Does anyone believe China's numbers?

It might be down to getting over a chest infection (not coronavirus) but I really don't give a toss about Chinese numbers or what not tbh. Either it'll transform into a superflu and wipe out all of us, or it'll be like every other pandemic in the last 30 years and kill up to half a million people then get forgotten by Christmas. .

Much more likely the latter, of course.

A few days ago, the director of a hospital in Wuhan died & now there are people on Twitter who write that a second hospital director in Wuhan is fighting for his life too. :(

Not to panic The Engineer unnecessarily, but coronavirus has started killing folk in Iran who had never left their home country in their lives.

And South Korea has declared emergency measures after confirmed cases there double to over 200 in a day. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51582186

My neighbours are going on holiday to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam next week.

Should I move before they get back?

Your neighbours aren't Stuart Hall and Rolf Harris, are they?

Chinese workers go to Iran and they reckon it started from there.

 

I'm very worried now I'm ordering a hazmat suit and ninja stars as we speak.

Italy's Patient Zero is 38 years old and currently on a ventilator. He had been examined before and got sent home, but the disease worked its way over several weeks. 

They say that in China, the infection rate is slowing down. But I think the death toll follows with a delay of several weeks.

I think China alone will end up with 7000...8000... deaths once this is over. Now I wonder if other countries will do better or worse. Some countries have better medical care, but are not so autocratic.

If China can serve as a sort-of "median" country in terms of readiness against the disease, and China contains about a 5th or 6th of the world's population, we might then look at about 40.000 deaths.

If you think china is telling the truth that is. Could already be over 10k in deaths.
