I've been follwing the Corona Virus Updates thread from day 1 and have recieved a great deal of useful information as a result. That being said, it has become so full of personal accounts, theories, and prep advice that I can no longer keep up with the enormous amount of posts. I think we all know that this virus is well established and most likely coming to all of our backyards soon enough. The point of this thead is to do away with opinions and speculation and stick to the COLD HARD FACTS. Numbers of infected, deaths, rate of spread, mutations, divergent strains, vaccines, and treatments, actions being taken by governments to slow the spread, etc. This thread should have very few replies to posts because we're only posting hard info. And PLEASE KEEP RELIGION AND POLITICS OUT OF IT!

You would think you would post a few hard facts to start us off.

At least a link?

S&F





Increasing evidence shows that coronavriruses are not always confined to the respiratory tract and that they may also invade the central nervous system inducing neurological diseases. The infection of SARS‐CoV has been reported in the brains from both patients and experimental animals, where the brainstem was heavily infected.


The neuroinvasive potential of SARS‐CoV2 may be at least partially responsible for the respiratory failure of COVID‐19 patients

Touche. I haven't been a source of many hard facts and am thus in debt to those that are and have contributed to the Cornona Virus Updates thread started by Agit8tedchop. In truth, the idea is all I have to contribute beyond copying and pasting from the other thread. I'm sincerely hoping that some of those aformentioned contributors see the need for a more focused thread and contribute here. This thread may be short lived...

I see something troubling about the numbers.

All other countries with about the same amount of cases as the US have a lot lower death rate.

Lots of people in the U.S. are recovering. But the MSM barely mentions it, or subtracts these people from their total number of infected. Has the U.S. medical profession stated how long the virus keeps one sick, on average? 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks?

So you are saying there are no hard facts that we can trust.

I am with you there.

The US isn't really testing and so aren't accounting for the hundreds or thousands of mild cases out in the wild. So far, the confirmed cases are those that can't be ignored and a large percentage of them are in an assisted living community with a much higher chance for fatality.

I see your point. As far as overall numbers and deaths, probably very few hard facts. I think the reported cases and any info on the virus itself (orgin, means of transmission, recovery time, etc), is about as close to facts as we can get. I guess it's all speculation in the end. I wold love to have kept reading the other thread with about 80% of the posts cut out.

Washing your hands 5 times a day cuts your chance of infection by 45%. Try not to touch your eyes, nose, mouth, or any other area with mucous membranes.

Other than that, don’t go licking handrails in Chinatown.

A hard fact I trust, thank you underwerks.

You forgot don't lick shrines in Iran.

You want the official numbers they are here


Your source says 3.4% mortality rate. Fearmonger much? The spanish flu had only a 2.5% mortality rate and 50 million died of spanish flu. Are you sure your source is factual? This is scary because the R.0. value for the Spanish flu was only 1.8 (meaning each person infected would spread it to 1.8 people on average) whereas covid-19 has an R.0. Value of 6.6.

source

By the way the way they get that mortality rate doesnt make sense. Comparing the number of infected to the number dead is a logical fallacy. Some of those 90k infected will die too so that would add to the mortality rate.
