This is the new case that indicates that the virus not just kills elderlies.  The doctor who was killed by the virus was only 34 year old..................

yeah, the whole coronavirus seems like one big coverup. Time will tell. Anyone versed in history knows the China govt lies first, last and in between.  Very atheistic nation as well. One of the few that failed to be converted by the blood of the Saints they martyred. That is a stiff necked people with a very cruel nature.

Li, who according to the BBC is a 34-year-old ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital, had claimed that in late December he shared his concerns about the illness via private chat with medical school graduates after several patients exhibited symptoms similar to SARS before he was visited and warned by authorities.

He was then summoned to Public Security Bureau where he was forced to sign a letter stating that he made false comments about the virus, the BBC reported. Authorities later apologized.

Shortly after, he began coughing and developed a fever that landed him in the hospital for several days. On Jan. 30, he tested positive for the virus.

Absolutely raises questions about the "forthrightness" of the Chinese Government. Of course, they have never been renowned for telling the truth. On the other hand, its probably not going to do any good to try to talk the market down with virus news until (or if) there is significant infections outside of China.

 

In edit, that headline was on the main fox news page early this morning. Market didn't care. Not trying to start a food fight. Just pointing out the obvious.

I do wish we had better data.

 

I have been tracking this for a bit now, and while the mortality on completed cases is high, it seems to be improving and the high fatality rate is mostly at ground zero. I'm assuming that this was due to misunderstanding of the disease and being overwhelmed.

 

Hoping to get a better read of the situation now, I look at all the other areas with more than 300 cases, and examined the death rate on COMPLETED (dead or recovered) cases. This started at about 2% and has been falling a bit. That's still pretty high. It's also tentative. It's both early and the data may be suspect. The next 3 weeks or so will tell us a lot more.

The caveat to the numbers is that is that reporting requires access to healthcare. With hospitals overwhelmed, both the deaths and cases numbers are likely underestimated.

If that's the case, so would recoveries, so that might be an offset.

Frankly, I'm more worried about deaths being grossly under-reported. I am heartened, so far, by the lack of deaths outside of ground zero, generally.

Yes. Also it may take longer to recover than to die, and less severe cases probably fly under the radar.

I'm puzzled why the number of new reported cases hasn't been increasing exponentially as one would expect in spreading infection, its just 3-4k new cases every day. It's not clear to me  it would be so. Likely possibilities are a bottleneck in reporting and/or testing specifically for this virus, as it is hard to believe that they already have transmission under control. So I'd say that all this is likely to remain a black box for a while.

Virus Killing U.S. Kids Isn't the One Dominating Headlines...

 

The flu has killed dozens of U.S. kids this season.

 

On the other hand, a few years ago when I met a new client for the first time, the guy could barely talk or walk after his flu shot sent him to the hospital from a tragic, nearly fatal reaction.

 

That image is with me every time"they" say you must get a shot.

 

If I was in China reporting this, I would be in prison now... or worse.

 

Maybe we need more faith in Darwin's survival of the fittest.

Year of THE RAT

 

Perfect climate for another "Black Plague"? 
The Black Death, also known as the Pestilence, the Great Plague or the Plague, or less commonly the Black Plague, was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people in Eurasia, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.
