South Korea had tested more than 200,000 people while the US had barely hit 4,000 tests. So many deaths could have been avoided. An utter top down failure of leadership.

⚠️25% have ZERO SYMPTOMS! “25 percent of people infected with may not show symptoms— startlingly high number that complicates efforts to predict pandemic. high level of symptom-free cases is leading CDC to consider public wear masks. 😷😷😷

That’s debated in article. But still uncertain how long immunity lasts. And how many diff antibodies can offer immunity. antibodies can disappear from circulation but you have it saved in your memory B cells archive. And finally measles infection can wipe out B archive!

⚠️Goal is to reduce from a high of 1.5-2.2 million deaths to only 100,000-240,000 deaths. Big numbers for “corona flu”. Glad he is finally admitting is serious. Let’s put politics aside- saving lives is what we should care about. Now let’s get on emergency management.

2) “residents said they were growing increasingly skeptical that the figure of some 2,500 deaths in the city to date was accurate. seven large funeral homes in Wuhan have been handing out the cremated remains of around 500 people to their families every day”

I think it’s the character count issue too. A proper —> is three characters. Emoji like 🦠 also uses fewer characters than typing ‘virus’ out.

15) Deaths could be < full 40k. Hat tip to on analysis: Wuhan: 15M people. Natural deaths: -Yearly: ~150k -Daily: ~500 Quarantined: 60days Chinese new year departures: 1/3. Wuhan natural deaths: 500×60×0.66=20k 📌20k natural & 📌20k excess ➡️ likely deaths.
