What is Medrxiv.org?
Stop it. I had the flu in 1972 and there is no way this is true.
Actual data? Be still my heart!Bring Out Your Dead
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
If a quarantine saves just one child's life, it's worth it.
I would be interested in how this skews towards people who already have lung problems.
Fear mongering drives down markets, lay investors scared into selling off. Now the hard numbers come out, institutional investors ride their bargains to new highs as relief sweeps the markets.
If this is true this thing is a monster
Consider this is mostly, almost all asian deaths. They are more prone to have serious cases and die from this than those with european genetics. So this is a significant factor in why the current death rate is higher.
How did the demographics of these 50k peeps fit the demos of various countries?
Whatta bout numerical analysis of how contagious it is?
Where do they get the 50k resolved cases for the study?
“...ride their bargains to new highs as relief sweeps the markets.”
Nice crystal ball you have there.
When will this rising tide start happening?
I know as much or little as everyone else about the coronavirus epidemic, but this triggers my BS meter.
Iran’s rate was 1 in 5 or 20%.
That may be skewing the results.
Hard to trust the numbers that mostly come from China.
In general only a fifth of the cases are severe. With modern medicine that isn’t overwhelmed only a tenth of those die. Without modern medicine most of that fifth die.
It might also be related to cultural factors, e.g., lack of sanitary conditions.
I’d be curious to know the mortality rate in Japan compared to China.
I’ve been assured this is just panic to crash the market.
This is no worse than the common cold!
They took the total number of reported survivors 25,351 and doubled it?
