    It was estimated at the end of the week that the true number of cases could be a factor of 10 of reported cases.
    Wow. I didn't see that.

    And yet 3-4% of those that get it die.

    EZ

    Didnt they reckon though that lots will get Coronavirus and not even realise it? Think they said lots will have mild symptoms..
    If thats the case then surely that would make the reported death rates well out , it would be a death rate of reported cases which is what these figures are based on.

    That's not news, government openly admit it. Only people being tested now are those who need to go to hospital.

    Sure, but my point is that it makes the reported fatality rate fairly meaningless.

    I get that you are scared, but that my friend is absolute nonsense. This virus has an average mortality rate worldwide of less than 1%.
    Just to put this in context, approx 4600 deaths have been attributed to the virus out of a world population of 7.8 billion.
    Regular influenza will still kill more people worldwide.
    Experts are saying the whole world will catch it. A 1% death rate is 78 million. More likely to be closer to flu death rate of 0 1% so 7.8 million dead.

    Over 3,200 people have succumbed in China in a population of over 1.3 billion. The number of daily reported cases has dropped to 20, 10 deaths yesterday.

    To say millions will die from this virus is ridiculous.

    Articles in the Guardian about "secret reports" and using the words "possibility" and "suggests" a lot.

    I don't think they should be taken as 100% guaranteed to happen exactly as it's making out.

    I don't think anything is guaranteed. However, I think the "it's just like the flu" brigade are very, very wrong.

    I agree that it's not just like Flu.

    I suppose I'm just trying to remain as positive as possible and hope people deal with this calmly.

    37% of people are good at Maths.

    The other 64% are sub-standard

    The bit in bold is incorrect. Nonsense in fact.

    Why did you post this?

    There is, across large swathes of USA, no testing regime for Coronavirus in place. That is fact: unless you watch Fox News.

    OK, it's slightly more complicated.... but not nonsense.


    'On Thursday, the top health official for infectious diseases admitted that the testing system was "currently failing", and that the US was not able to supply tests "easily, the way people in other countries are doing it".'

    BBC Article
    Yep, but that's not what your previous post said, was it.

    Why? Because I know someone personally who has already been tested in USA. Got tested no problem, and thankfully test result has come back as negative.
