One explanation could be a longer incubation period than the 3-14 days that was originally postulated.
I am not saying that is the case, but if we see an increase of cases outside of China soon, there's the answer.
(who gets to treat a heart attack if the local health care system is inundated with Wu Flu?).
if ambulances are out servicing those near death from pneumonia for transport, and hospitals are quarantined, then who handles the rest of the medical issues?
Disaster and Emergency Management

1) If you're going by the official numbers, then the official mortality rate seems to be around 20% (1018/4352*100 = 23.39%, wuflu.live numbers as of 13:54 EST).
2) The worldwide response doesn't jive with the "nothing to see here" narrative.
That, in my opinion, is enough to take a step back and admit that we don't have enough information to make a determination one way or another,
and people who are concerned about this should not be summarily dismissed as whack-jobs or far-out conspiracy theorists.

Crazy, I know. I've seen that, and many other videos, and it tells me that the ChiCom Government is lying through their nose. Acknowledging that they are lying, btw, does not make you paranoid or crazy... it just makes for larger questions about the official narrative.
Or as ATS used to say, "Deny ignorance".

Most people with the flu rarely exhibit pneumonia like symptoms
You must not know how many people die from the flu each year.
Cornoavirus is not a flu, it's a cold, a respiratory illness.

So far, there are only TWO deaths (and that's if you count Honk Kong separate from China) outside of Mainland China.
Another very important stat you left out is, both of these were native Chinese who recently left WuHan.
It really seems like some of you want this thing to become the apocalypse.
I am not saying that is the case
So, how do you explain the fact that it has been 3 months, with the first full month with ZERO travel bans/lockdowns/quarantines, etc, to get it started spreading. Where are all of the infected?
Answer: there aren't any (huge number of hidden infected).
