I posted the following yesterday;
Mr. Xi warned officials not to resist orders or to let “bureaucratism” slow government efforts to bring the outbreak under control. “Those who disobey the unified command or shirk off responsibilities will be punished,” Mr. Xi said, the Xinhua news agency reported.
I think what the underlying message here is, is that China is now very draconian, and I mean full medieval, with it's approach in how it deals with it's citizens, in an attempt to get on top of the virus.
that virus is going full medieval on them, so can you really blame them?
silly example, but in the game posted several times in relation to this news, Plague Inc., i had a scenario where USA managed to close it's borders before the virus hit them, preventing the spread there. when the rest of the world was dying and there was still no cure, they somehow got a few cases, in the south i guess? from Mexico? i don't remember. thing is, they've rounded them up and killed them all to prevent the spread of the virus.
now, that's just a silly game, but do you think such scenario isn't possible? the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

What kind of growth would this be then? If what we have now is exponential?
Go and look up what exponential means before you embarras yourself further.
That is friendly advice.
No, I'm seriously asking, trying to learn more.
If something grows by a fixed percentage per time period it is exponential.
1% growth per day is exponential.
2% growth per day is exponential.
1000% per day is exponential.
100% per year is exponential.
In nature/the real world things do not grow at a fixed rate per day, they fluctuate, so the overall increase can be exponential even though the percent per time period is varying.
That's why you work out an average.
Then you can create a rough model.
I see, but what if we get a lower % every day.... like 29,26, 22, 20, 19,... is it still exponential?
I get that 20% every day would be exponential since the total sum increases every day, and thus 20% of that number is MORE every day. But if the % decreases then idk how it could be exponential.
don't look at the percentages alone.
when the amount of new cases is constant day after day, the growth is linear.
when the percentage is constant, the growth is exponential.
when the percentage is higher, the growth is faster than exponential.
when the percentage goes down, but the number of new cases is still higher than in the previous day, it's between linear and exponential - it's not following exponential curve, but it's still growing, faster than linearly.
when the amount of new cases is lower than in the previous day, the growth is less than linear.
that being said, there are fluctuations. you could try to average the official numbers to smooth out the curve before trying to determine the growth rate, but there's more than one way to do it. personally i would probably use bell curve over a few days window, but then you gotta be careful to normalize the data properly or you'll end up with crap results. it's entirely separate topic.
Hi, thanks for your reply, well explained.
"when the amount of new cases is lower than in the previous day, the growth is less than linear."
^^This, sir, is all I and our fellow members here needed to hear, and basically what I have been screaming all along.
Thanks!
Not only has the exponential growth stopped, it's decaying so fast it's not even linear as the number of cases added today is LOWER than the number of cases added yesterday. I understand fluctuations and all that, we'll see the next day, if tomorrow's number's are lower than today's numbers, then the growth is in decay.

Lysol. What I was pointing to is it's not unusual for spraying to clean or kill whatever. No idea what is being sprayed in China but whatever it is probably has some side effect.

nice attempt at distorting what i've said just to confirm your biased views to "prove" you're "right", but kindly take off your f..king blinders. it's getting tiresome, as you're clearly immune to logic.
or did you not notice the part about FLUCTUATIONS? of course you did. you're just pretending to search for the truth, just to get back to trolling few moments later.
how's your ego? can you both fit together in a single armchair?
f..king disgusting.

Did we ever hear a reason why the doctor who lead the Japanese quarantine operation killed himself? Obviously I’m not expecting anything and my heart goes out to his family, but come on.

No worries, I clarified I understand we need more datapoints/more days to conclude the trend is in decay. So we'll just wait and see... no trolling, nobody is calling anyone names, just waiting for the damn numbers.

Two of the passengers on The Diamond Princess, part of the Princess Cruise Line fleet who’ve been told to stay in their rooms for the next two weeks are from my neighboring town are on board. News Channel 11 made contact with Dr. Arnold and Jeanie Hopland Wednesday afternoon by phone. Im sure Dr. Hopland is going to be very busy these next 2 weeks as I doubt he will stay in his room if they need more Dr.'s on board.

Maybe this is the stuff they are spraying, I can't find anything concrete, I'm really curious:
Disinfectant against Coronavirus / China 2019-nCoV
SAFETY DATA SHEET
Not as bad as chlorine dioxide, wish I knew what they were actually spraying. Still not the best stuff to inhale.
They also have a stronger version:
Sanosil S015 (Aerosol)

Latest update from Chris Martenson (PhD in Pathology & expert), all I can say is WOW! The MSM is attacking him and Wikipedia edited/removed his his bio. The “critics” lied and claimed he is profiting off his reports because he “has 12,000 more ‘paid subscribers’ on YouTube recently. YouTube doesn’t even have paid subscribers for individual channels (or if they do it’s not what they’re claiming in order to defame his character).
ASIDE from the political BS from the MSM and PTB to slander him he’s reporting lots of great facts including an antiviral treatment that is starting to show some promise.

Muzzle flash if you see this I’d ask you to give the first few minutes of this video a listen... give it a chance (maybe you’ll want to watch The whole thing). Please try to discredit what is being said about the severity of this outbreak
