That's because to be recovered you have to fully recover which takes weeks. Someone can die in a couple of days but no one can get fully recovered in a couple days.

so, in 4 weeks, if this stat is correct, we'll have about 2000 dead.
See you in a month...

Chinese citizens reporting that the Chinese govt is under-reporting deaths from coronavirus....and burning bodies to hide the evidence...the mortality rate is probably higher.

+SB. I think this thread needs to be taken down. Irresponsible make a claim based on a sample size of 294.

As of now (Mar 31, 2020 at 3:16pm EST) from https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

  • deaths = 41261
  • cases = 838061
  • mortality = 41261 / 838061 = 4.923%

Tami flu exists, no cure currently for Chadhan coronavirus.

Jan 30, 2020

Actually there is.

It has to go through procedures and testing, but it exists.

You are far more likely to die from the flu than you are to even get the Wuhan Corona Virus.

like many of Trump's tweets.....this did not age well.

910 dead (officially....but the real number is more like 30k dead and 200k infected if that leaked tencent data is correct)

it takes 3 weeks from symptoms to death (if you're going to die)

based on the progression of these numbers....~50% of those infected 3 weeks ago have died

Feb 10, 2020

The number of infected is suppressed but it is harder to cover up a death so the percentage is higher. Also, the number cured ignores people who didn't get sick enough to seek treatment and just got better on their own.

Good job ironnchef. I love how CRE edited all his posts to cover up how he dismissed the issue so that he can now criticize Trump for doing exactly the same for a short time.

Hypocrisy runs in the veins of the liberal.

No, I edited it because it was a dumb take from way before this became a crisis and this website doesn't need anymore stupidity, even if from me. Since one of the two was rated the "most helpful" post in this thread, I felt a personal responsibility to eliminate it, much like I fight against bad takes from others, because the truth is important and I am specifically not a hypocrite. I am, however, far from a perfect individual and am fully capable of saying something ignorant and then recanting later. Recognizing and admitting to mistakes is part of growing as a human.

Unlike Trump, I course corrected very quickly and very publicly throughout this forum after educating myself and, you know, I don't have daily intelligent reports at my disposal that I could have acted on or ignored like our President.

i didn't have daily intelligence reports either.,..it was just basic fucking common sense...the Chinese lie to save face...and you know...i can do math

Mar 30, 2020

To be fair, my snarky comment was unnecessary. I disagree with your editing, it would have been simpler to simply add ''looking back, this was a dumb take'' and that's it. I say stupid things all the time and if you take one post from me 3 months ago, chances are I said something stupid.

Now I make fun of you, you are probably already embarassed by yourself, you prefer cover up the thing and pretend nothing happened. I was educated like that, it's terrible, you never learn anything.

Indeed we are all humans, we do mistakes, that's life. I would say the ability to grasp human limitations tends to be one of the best traits of conservatives, compared to the often blind faith in science that liberals have. Science is good, but science messes up as well, see this Covid debacle. I am sure that in time we will have a good scientific explanation, but given that we are still in the human realm, errors happen.

And Trump changed course quite quickly as well, same argument applies. Treat others as you'd like to be treated.
