The following is from the abstract: "On 3 February, 2020, an outbreak of COVID-19 on cruise ship Diamond Princess was reported with 10 initial cases, following an index case on board around 21-25 January. By 4 February, public health measures such as removal and isolation of ill passengers and quarantine of non-ill passengers were implemented. By 20 February, 619 of 3,700 passengers and crew (17%) were tested positive. ... The basic reproduction rate was initially 4 times higher on-board compared to the in the epicentre in Wuhan, but the countermeasures lowered it substantially. ... [W]e estimated that without any interventions within the time period of 21 January to 19 February, 2920 out of the 3700 (79%) would have been infected. Isolation and quarantine therefore prevented 2307 cases. ... [A]n early evacuation of all passengers on 3 February would have been associated with 76 infected persons in their incubation time."

    That's true, but it's not what was asked.

    China and Italy are the same every year. And yet, this year their health systems got overwhelmed.

    So there must be a difference between the seasonal flu they get every year, and the one they got this year. If it's not the currently talked about strain of CoVid, then it must be something else that we haven't identified yet. Regardless, its effect are clearly different form those of a normal seasonal flu.

    Check for age of population.
    Smoke: Koreans can't be smoking less, and their trajectory has been different.
    Dutch are on the same trajectory as Italy, and their social habits are quite different.
    As for the health system, it's been underfunded for at least ten years, thanks to austerity-driven economic policies. The number of ICU beds has been cut in almost half, and this is the single biggest factor (together with age) that has driven the death count.

    Also; there might be differences in the way Italy is recording cause of death; if CoVId is present, together with other conditions, the cause of death will probably be counted as CoVid. In other countries (notably Germany, until recently an outlier in terms of death percentage), the same death would probably be registered under one of the other conditions.

    Don't recall who asked the question, but the person who answered was male and I believe was one of several medical professionals answering general questions about the virus.

    Maybe they estimated wrong. But if it saves the life of one person, the destruction of the economy was worth it. After all, People Before Profits.

    Using current data points, progression rates and sophisticated computer modeling I estimate by 2025 my powerlifting total will be #2500...

    On a unrelated note, did you know the coronavirus does not exist? People are panicking for nothing. You literally have a better chance of winning the lottery than dying from corona.

If everybody is going to be exposed to this disease anyway, and it seems now that the lethality has been exaggerated, I suggest that we look at the bigger picture here and get this over with ASAP, especially considering that the economic ramifications of World Economic Collapse may well ultimately be responsible for more dead people than COVID19 itself.



    But Ohio already won yesterday.
    I love ya Rip. Starting Strength changed my life. But you are completely fucking wrong about all of this. It's bad and gonna get a lot worse. Period. I'm not gonna be the guy in 2 months to say I told you so, but our hospitals will be overrun. We don't have the equipment. Many people will die. Many will die because we dont have masks or respirators.

    Shoq was a troll, and that was the post that got him shitcanned. I should have deleted it, but it's too late now. Hell, I'll delete it anyway.

    And I may be wrong, and you may be wrong. The good news is that it won't take until Thanksgiving to know.

    Friends are getting mad at me because I don’t take the virus seriously and I think the economic impact from the hype is far more dangerous.

    One question: how does this explain the situation in Italy, for example? Are the reports of hospitals being overrun and unimaginable battlefield triage fake or blown out of proportion?

    Give me a good rebuttal to use.
