    Dont want to get into semantics too much But, I wouldn't say countless, unless you're in Italy. Its about 1.5% of confirmed infected in the US right now.

    It could also just mutate to a weaker strain from natural selection and become another seasonal flu or similar with us finding no treatment for it.

    Actually if you read some studies available online about SARS, corona viruses have been known for about 50 years or so.

    Day 1? I'm in the second week of isolation and we are just stating 1 month of state of emergency lockdown from tomorrow onwards.

    I'm so fucking bored of 2020. I wondered how this decade could be worse than the limpwristed losers of the 2010s, now I see how much weaker people can get..

    Could be.

    I don't think the death rate matters so much, its the numbers of people going to hospital we need to be wary of. Once the hospitals full, it's full.

    My point is the "lockdown" here is a joke. Sorry for your suffering.

    The mutation and spread thing is something that will probably show up in the final data. There’s some presumption that a less deadly mutation already exists in China, and that might account for some cases asymptomatic or low grade infection.

    Realistically, thats the most likely version of the virus to spread, since the host stays alive and infectious, where severe cases cause the host to die relatively quickly, and under isolation. I don’t think there’s any data that tells us definitively this is happening yet, but if you see numbers start to flatten out and death rates decline regionally, that might play a part in it.

    Yes, I just read the news. This could have its own thread.

    Prince Charles potentially dying/infecting the royal family is a big deal. In the UK, at least.

    I understand, everybody is just a little on edge lately. At least they're taking it seriously over there and you guys are closer to being over this than we likely are lol.
