CDC has stated that the mortality rate for the virus has been estimated to be 3-3.5%, 

This is the Global rate... in Wuhan it was over 7%, in Italy it is 10% hitting 80-90 year olds, Iran is super high...

South Korea, China (outside of Wuhan), other developed countries - its around .5%

It is a sad commentary on humans that there is never a lack of predators willing to traffic on human fear and misery. Alex Jones (he of Infowars) and disgraced evangelist Jimmy Bakker have both been advertising "cures" for the COVID19 illness and have been warned to stop immediately or face criminal prosecution.

"Today WHO declared the coronavirus COVID-19 a “pandemic” – when there is not the slightest trace of a pandemic. A pandemic might be the condition, when the death to infection rate reaches more than 12%. In Europe, the death rate is about 0.4%, or less. Except for Italy which is a special case, where the peak of the death rate was 6% (see below for further analysis). China, where the death rate peaked only a few weeks ago at about 3%, is back to 0.7% – and rapidly declining ..."

another restructuring done by Ticats - this time it's Van Zeyl

Wondering how they were going to fit everyone under the cap this year. If they dont win it in 2020 (if there is a season) they may be set back several years with all of this restructuring.

Should anyone wish to track the spread and effect of the COVID19, here is a website that is updated hour by hour: https://ncov2019.live

 

Thanks for the map.

I know not everyone reads the General forum, but for further discussion and news on COVID-19, lets use the thread there so all info is in one place.

pandemic doesn't only refer to death rate. But the overall spread of infection. Because this has now gone World wide. It's fair to call it a pandemic.

We laugh but somewhere Lapo is crying.

I saw that on Twitter this morning. I was going to post. "Are you trying to give Lapo a heart attack? That really looks like you pulled  Nichols..."

I decided not to feed the twitter trolls, it's a joke. Not trying to disparage Nichols at but in these times we have to look for humour when we can.

This comment aged well. Amazing what can happen in a week with a newly evolved virus in such an interconnected world.

Just for reference, the WHO defines a pandemic as "the worldwide spread of a new (novel) disease," such as a virus. In the case of the rapid global spread of COVID-19, the WHO was being diligent and proactive in its application of the term pandemic. As we've seen over the last seven days, what most experts predicted is exactly what's happened.
