    Beaten SARS on terms of death toll. Nearly 1000 dead.

    We'll be fine, we're up to an additional £700 million that's been put into the NHS already, aren't we?

    Aren't China just calculating the death rate as ~3% of the total reported figure for infections? Suggesting the true death rate is actually significantly higher?

    Well it works both ways, a lot of people will be infected but not really suffering severe symptoms and not seeking treatment and not dying. It takes a while for the data to settle down I suppose too

    I thought it was more that way, its around 2-3% of recorded infections, those who don't present at medical centres because they don't feel ill enough or out of fear don't get recorded, so the mortality rate is actually way lower.

    Coupled with the infection rate apparently flattening out, I predict this being OLD NEWS by March

    So it's been rebranded Covid-19. I think this will appeal to the youth demographic.

    Probably means the mid '30s wing of The Gammon Army can start drinking their shitty lager again without getting confused.
