COVID seems to have a death rate roughly 20 times higher than the flu (based on the limited numbers we have). The difference is the flu affects millions and this does not.

Daily Top Ten admissions in SK compared to the previous week:

-25 % Thursday
-46 % Friday

This is false. It's mortality rate is 2% Influenza is well over 10%.

What nonsense are you spreading? Mortality rate for the flu is 0.1 %.

Otherwise you would be probably dead by now (10 strikes and you're out)...

Disney should push Mulan into the summer. I know it’s way late but they’re gonna lose like $300M from Asian (and maybe even some European) theaters being closed. Give it Artemis Fowl’s date and don’t worry too much about Artemis Fowl since it will likely flop anyways.

Im not arguing when your reference Is mayo clinic, lol. Common flu is usually adenovirus, sincitial respiratory virus or other kinds weakish virus. Thls have like a. 0.00001% mortality rate and I'm sure it's the one you are saying.

Influenza is another kind of bitch that causes flu like symptoms but it's really just another bitch and the responsable of the major influenza pandemics. This one can cause Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and it's mortality rate is high as fuck when they have ADRS. Just today I had a patient that died because of an influenza infection that caused ADRS , he was intubated for 12 days and died despite everything we did. Soooooo common flu =\= influenza.

I think we've all gone off topic here. I've heard from our other office in Italy that two districts/major areas have been closed there. There is panic among people there with rations going out of stock. South Korea also keeps on seeing a spike in new infection detection and 3 people have died there.

Mission Impossible 7 was filming in Italy and had to delay production. :(

I hadn’t thought about things like that. The 2021 release schedule could be in trouble.

It could be called contained in Italy and South Korea since they are following China’s lead and putting strict quarantines in place. It seems it’s been contained in China. They need to outflank the virus and prevent pools of undetected cases with increasing spread. The questions are: how many more outbreaks will there be? In how many countries? And is it spreading in poorer countries? If it gains permanent residence in poor countries they will need a vaccine or it will be difficult to prevent an eventual pandemic.

Highly doubt that.

Well, I might not trust China’s numbers either, but I think they wouldn’t want a coverup at this point for a number of reasons. They just reported only 18 new cases in a day outside Hubei. I don’t think they would want people to think it’s safe to return to normal and risk them spreading it. Also if they lie about containment it could hurt their international reputation and other countries wouldn’t trust them to reopen travel and trade. China wants to be open for business again.

I do find their case numbers believable. China’s quarantines have been draconian, and it’s believable that r naught could be lowered well under 1, causing cases to decline.

In Italy infections went from 3 on Friday to 230 on Monday, Tuesday noon numbers are at 270 (7 deaths)...

Austria and Croatia now have their first cases as well...

In Iran the vice minister for health got infected himself after downplaying the virus for days...

I guess by the end of the week the WHO will confirm that it is a pandemic...

A member of Iran’s parliament also has it. There are not that many members of parliament or high ranking health ministers. If it’s already being detected there, then almost certainly a significant percentage of the population has it. There must be thousands of cases, probably tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands. It’s spreading through Iran and the Middle East will follow. Plus if this is what it took to be detected in Iran we can expect the same in other less developed countries. It won’t be detected until it’s too late.

The question for developed countries is when outbreaks will be detected. Based on Korea and Italy it seems once there are hundreds of cases. That could stop spread with quarantines, but they would need to detect all the pockets of infections, and there remains the issue of travelers from poorer countries. Will they ban travel from half the world? Or quarantine everyone coming from certain countries?

Monday business in Italy was down 75% from last week. It all happened in just a couple of days, as Friday was up 8%.
Some movies have already been delayed, including the previews of Onward. And it can only get worse.

So true. I don't know why they are closing the places for this. People should just continue their lives.

Korea has drop in infection rate compared to yesterday. So hopefully they have things in control soon. Let us see if Italy count is exponentially increasing or taper down quickly. At least they are taking action. Singapore also seem to be on top of things with just 1 new case. They will be a model for other countries to model.

US is a concern considering how many folks traveled back from China in Dec/Jan and number of folks tested are minimal. Let us see where things go.

China seem to have things in complete control if you believe the data. Based on folks in China at BOT fewer cases coming in that cured folks. Only time will tell if there will be a 2nd wave.

Most experts here and in China expected this to burst out towards end of February which is happening. Let's hope it ends soon as they expected March to be better and then finish by June.
