Re: Coronavirus outbreak

"Plus many countries (UK and US) aren't testing properly anymore, so that stat is even more pointless." Disagree. We have a population of confirmed cases and from that population it appears 16% die. The fact that these are more severe cases seems to be irrelevant. I don't particularly car...

*Already 52,000 (18:49)

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Anyone care to place a bet that the actual death rate for the total population falls in the UK this year? I think it will You've cracked the longevity conundrum!!! Traffic mortalities down by 99%, no plane crashes, zero "Claphams", no street knifings, 99% reduction in drownings, no-one lo...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Its because those two stats don't include the people who have yet to have an outcome Plus many countries (UK and US) aren't testing properly anymore, so that stat is even more pointless.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

The site appears accurate and reliable and although their numbers are occasionally ahead or behind the one run by John Hopkins university, they tally 99% over time. Th...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

When did the severe lockdown start? Does anyone know when the curve is expected to peak? Looking at the average daily increase for the last 10 days, Confirmed Cases are rising by 17.5% a day and Deaths by 12.92% per day. To get the doubling period divide 70 by the number. Cases doubling every 4 days...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

you've just compared them there fella Comparisons with SARS are beginning to look pointless. We are already 1 scale of magnitude worse off, and it is going to worsen.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

If the Spanish Flu or Black Plague had surfaced for the first time now, I am sure a lot of people would've died but a cure/vaccine would've been found a lot quicker because of the technological advances. Maybe, but not really. The virus attacked in three waves and lasted about 34 months, beginning ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

you've just compared them there fella You can compare a pygmy do a two-metre tall Masai warrior. Doesn't mean you're saying they are equivalent. You seem to be inferring that by "comparing" I'm suggesting that is where we are headed. I'm not suggesting it's "where we are headed"...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Snowball, how useful is the comparison with 1918 though? It does sensationalise it. Different viruses, different mortality rates, particularly amongst the young. Different levels of health care and communication now. Take a read of Wiki on The Spanish Flu. Read around and see how it was first under...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I don’t really like your sensationalism Snowball (as I have said a few times) but underneath that, you’re bang on. CORRECTION: your second post mitigates this dramatically. My only quibbles with your last line: - There are, I believe, one or two occasional posters on here who were alive for the Bat...

I should add that we are betting on lockdowns etc slowing the exponential rise, then stopping the rise, then, eventually seeing a decline in daily cases.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Jagermesiter1871 Certainly flattened. I think that is good news other than it still being a horrific number.


Looking that way but not yet certain IMO, not with two days higher than Sunday-Monday
It is currently 02 Apr 2020 00:45
