When he updates it should be about 60,000 cases. At this rate, it could be 100,000 by end of the month.

The Novel Coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, is Highly Contagious and More Infectious Than Initially Estimated

Abstract The novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a recently emerged human pathogen that has spread widely since January 2020.

Initially, the basic reproductive number, R0, was estimated to be 2.2 to 2.7. Here we provide a new estimate of this quantity.

We collected extensive individual case reports and estimated key epidemiology parameters, including the incubation period.

Integrating these estimates and high-resolution real-time human travel and infection data with mathematical models, we estimated that the number of infected individuals during early epidemic double every 2.4 days, and the R0 value is likely to be between 4.7 and 6.6.

We further show that quarantine and contact tracing of symptomatic individuals alone may not be effective and early, strong control measures are needed to stop transmission of the virus.

I’m not so sure Lookner is interpreting the numbers correctly. The additional 14K might be over the last several weeks, not in 24hrs.

I’ll bet $5 that if the true numbers were known, there’d be 250,000+ dead and 5-10 million infected. But we’ll never know as the crematoria are working overtime.

The airports are located in Hawaii, Illinois, Texas , California , Georgia, New York, Washington state, Washington DC, New Jersey and Michigan

Americans returning from the coronavirus outbreak epicenter in Wuhan, China, are required to spend 14 days under quarantine

Nice.

R0 of 5 or 6.

Sounds like they’ve reached the phase where they have to start ramping up their numbers towards reality, if they want to get some international help.

Expect at least a week of this, if not more.

Notice how few questions about this disease are being asked or answered 1) How many Western non Chinese who live and work in Wusan have become ill or died from this coronavirus? 2) Why aren’t the Chinese allowing Western viral experts , epidemiologists and organizations such as the CDC to come to China and study and learn? BTW if you have tickets or reservations for the summer Olympics in Japan, might be a good idea to change your plans.

Not seeing the criteria, they are now counting “clinical diagnoses”.

My guess is they are running out of test kits and now have to rely on dr’s saying the person has the virus based on known symptoms.

I think lack of test kits was resulting in lower “growth” numbers over the last few days. There was also rumor that they weren’t counting people that tested positive without symptoms.
