This is not directed to you but is this shocking in any manner? 

 

We can clearly see what is happening in other countries and it will happen here.  Contrary to what we are told, we are not special and in fact we are collectively relatively lazy and ignorant.  Watch the BBC, Canadian new, Australian news, or Al Jazeera if you want a perspective from the outside. 

 

Cases are spiking here as some testing is now occurring, expect the numbers to rise very rapidly.  I see 15,000 new cases worldwide since Friday on the Johns Hopkins site.  2.5 days.

So far the only effect on me from this Corona virus is low bank interest. But there could be a multitude of issues forthcoming.

It is not shocking, it was to be expected and we will probably reach similar dimensions as the "SARS" virus in 2003.

I haven't been following it too closely ... there are at least two cases in my town though.

Twitter was ablaze with criticism of President Trump for saying that the death rate was 1% folks on twitter are saying it's four percent (based on USA statistics).  Given the varying medical facilities, procedures, and restrictions, I wonder how to determine an accurate "overall" fatality rate or if that is even possible or applicable?

Given the numbers posted above, 1170 cases in Germany and only two deaths isn't 4%

can we compare or it silly to even try?

In Germany there has been no interest on bank balances for a long time. Thanks to the monetary policy of the ECB, it is better to spend it .56.gif

every year more people in Germany die of an ordinary flu. One should relativize the virus, but what makes it so dangerous we do not know yet, worldwide researchers are working on vaccines. I hope they have rapid results.

read this morning, some folks in Texas claim to have a vaccine ready for testing.  Depending on how quickly the government allows them, they estimate 12 months away with a worst case scenario being 18 months away from being available to the public.

No one knows the true death rate because no one knows exactly how many people are affected and how many people that have it and don't know it that live.

What is also problematic is the death rate data from the Corona Virus at roughly 3.8%. The flu death rate is somewhere below 1%

I agree, but tell that to the yahoos on twitter -- they seem to have it all figured out.

that's what I'm getting at ... what data is that 3.8% pulled from?  USA cases? Global?

Keep in mind that many of these cases are probably still "pending" - meaning the people haven't yet recovered.
