    Corona virus

    As much data here as you can digest. Mostly without the hype it seems. Interesting stuff. Draw your own conclusions.

    So 1 in 22 death rate.
    Higher than most recent flu types, but the heavy presence
    of third world victims probably explains a lot of that.

    While flu can kill (often from immune system over reaction) progress
    to pneumonia with bacterial infection are the more common path to death.

    We have way of treating pneumonia that are common in the first world (Cortisone and antibiotics)
    that do not appear to be present in third world medical systems.
    Cortisone is also useful in the immune system over reaction cases also.

    remember presumptive positive cases include in the numbers. Testing take 7 to 10 days for results, you are either dead or recovered by then, most recover. Since symptoms the same, it is the FLU. who knows, it is a hoax. Many are getting very rich, The H1N1 in (2008?) was worse, again it is the flu season!

    cv19 is a new strain but related to SARS, MERS, etc. it appears to have a higher mortality rate than other strains. the actual number isn't known, but what health organizations are seeing is variable, depending on country, population density, age demographic, robustness of the health care system, ability to test. Final number probably won't be know until this is over. CV19 is not a hoax. You can debate the soundness and effectiveness of responses country by country but you can't debate the novelty of CV19.

    Might have a little problem convincing New York state that it is a hoax.

    When I first read this article a few things made scary sense https://metro.co.uk/2020/01/24/us-wa...ntre-12114591/

    I know that some people favour BAT actions but just don't eat one.

    The hype is the hoax.
    Annual flu deaths start in the low tens of thousands in the USA.
    In a bad year they can approach 100,000.

    The flu (regardless of the actual virus causing it) has always been
    more dangerous for older folks, and anyone with underlying medical problems.
    It is mostly a press that has not been paying attention for many years.

    You are some right and some wrong. More wrong than right. I find myself as one of those older folks. Also my wife and many of my friends are in that group. I have found myself at funerals of people I have grown up with too often. The press is now doing their job letting folks know what the dangers are and how to protect themselves.

    Betsey Price, The Mayor of Fort Worth, Texas, said it in a way her people can understand, "Y'all take care, y'all be nice, and y'all stay home."

    The problem is that you bought into the media hype. No one ever said that the virus was a hoax. What was said is that the media hype of the virus was the hoax. We all hope that it passes quickly with a minimum amount of casualties.
