Lets get more science

This is a link to data via Johns Hopkins. No hype.


https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6


HERE is a link to WHO's summary (no jokes please)

https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Here is CDC

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

An interesting link (not as trusted as WHO or CDC) is
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-age-sex-demographics/

This shows some statistics (again, take EVERYTHING with a grain of salt- the sample sizes and populations are still very limited)

The key questions long term:
How infectious? (still not clear)
How Lethal? (still not clear)


It is too early to get truly good data.

"It is too early to get truly good data."

We have a winner!!

Obviously, COVID-19 is to be avoided, if at all possible, but the same can be said of the more familiar influenza.

Basically, wash your hands....

Planning is good. Obsessing is bad. People worry about the wrong stuff all the time.

This virus has killed 2130. that sucks.

the FLU kills ~646,000 people per year, yet almost nobody is scared of the flu.


People are scared of sharks- they kill 38 people per year.

Car/road accidents kill 1.25 million per year worldwide. Few of us are scared to drive.

I like to plan for things I can control.

Love the sections on food to keep on hand, etc.

Yeah, the other large group was due to a conference in Bavaria, Germany, though didn't spread as a far and wide, just related to one case in Spain.

This is an update from Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com regarding Covid-19. Coronavirus Cases Doubling Overnight In Many Countries - Peak Prosperity
Quote:
... Covid-19 cases are leaping higher in disparate countries around the globe — doubling overnight in South Korea, Italy and Iran.... It increasingly looks like the only hope countries have of containing covid-19 is to use the draconian mass quarantine efforts that China is enforcing on its populace.

Article in Fox News about coronavirus living on surfaces for 9 days. Couldn't quite make out if it was this new type too or just the older kinds.

Also killed by bleach, hydrogen peroxide.

For a coronavirus in general to survive for nine days on a surface would be pretty amazing and unusual, however I have not yet found any data or science saying that this figure is inaccurate for COVID-19.

This https://www.journalofhospitalinfection.com/article/S0195-6701(20)30046-3/fulltext seems to be the article Fox was reporting on.

Seems just pulling together previous research on other viruses.
