I hope not, the last thing we need is it to become more severe, at least that should lower the transmission rates.


That would be the only upside, that its so deadly and kills so fast that it just burns itself out like a flash in the pan.....i mean thats the point of a quarantine anyway I suppose

Yep, I can believe it.

Coronavirus ‘rumour’ crackdown by Wuhan police slammed by China’s top court

✅ Supreme People’s Court says authorities should have tolerated messages posted about the illness in a group chat, even if they were not completely accurate

✅ Chinese media report that a doctor posted information about the illness on an alumni forum before coming down with the virus himself

the numbers/stats seem to have paused again at 7816 infected and 170 fatalities... I check 5-6 different resources every time and some of them are all paused at the same stats for many many hours at a time.

I just find it odd... with WHO, CDC, scientific institutions and academics all involved in this thing, how are updated stats globally seemingly pausing for durations like this?



Probably to make sure that everyone reports the "right" numbers

Twitter post illustrates the situation.

Twitter

Text
Authorities in Langfang, Hebei province sealing the door of a family who has returned from #Wuhan, despite the woman protesting inside. That's how #CCP is dealing with #coronavirus. A humanitarian disaster is happening in China now.
.#WuhanCoronavirus #CoronavirusOutbreak

How is the lady locked in own home counted?

Why are govt officials doing this?

What if she is sick, can she get medical care?

If she gets sick, she just dies in her apartment?

How will these things be counted if they happen?

And this is only one video of many many on WeChat and Twitter.

Clearly human rights abuses at scale going on. Why hasn’t any reporters or WHO asked about these videos?

Short answer is yes

The chinese gov doesnt care about the people, they care about their economy and saving face.

Theyre hoping any fatalities happen in the homes during the quarantine, it fizzles out, they dont have to claim the numbers, and they can sweep it under the rug as fast as it cropped up in the news.

If there ever comes a time (in the US or the west) where there are "internet failures" in geographic locations, then we might have true cause to be concerned.

Just being conspiracy-minded.

Recall 3 or 4 times last year when FB, twitter, Google, Youtube went down. Didn't go down long but pissed off millions.

I can easily see our government curbing social media to slow the spread of information if there's a massive contagion.

As a matter of fact, I'd bet a shiny nickel that there's a binder on the very topic that's recently been updated sitting on someone's desk in some government office.

A great video compiled from clips by Al Jazeera.

Gotta love Chinese spirit! They make due with what they have.

Love the hand puppeteer.

Now back to grim darkness...

Pretty sure the cases/numbers are still being actively tallied but are only publicly released all-at-once at a certain time each day, at least when it comes to the official Chinese numbers.

No binder needed , they already got what they wanted when they repealed net neutrality principles. ISP have the legal right to slow or block your internet down to a painful crawl to any site they don't want you to access. It was their missing link .

The hammer hasn't been dropped on Americans yet, but it will be. The internet gives the consumer to much power and a voice and they don't want that. In the future you will only be able to access sites that are approved and follow the script. Mesh network won't work to get around it either, not because of technology but because liability and laws passed around 10 years ago.

We will be getting propaganda scripted websites in the future. It will be like if cnn and foxnews are in charge of content on the internet.

I've been saying for awhile that this is what happens when you don't have enough information so fear runs rampant.

People died during Spanish because they starved because their neighbors were too afraid to take them the supplies they needed to survive.

This is shades of that. These people will possibly starve because who will check on them? Will they be let out? And it's out of fear.

Thats not how net neutrality works, nor was it how it would have worked had they not repealed it.

Please keep the political commentary and opinions on the political board.

Really good video to watch for those who still think this virus is no worse than the flu:

To summarize:

Case Fatality Rate:
- Flu = 0.1%
- nCov = 3% or higher

RO:
- Flu = 1.28
- nCov = 2.5 - 3.5 or higher

Serious Complication rate (ICU bed requirement):
- Flu = < 1%
- nCov = ~20%
