You saying western countries are hiding stats?

The problem is that patient-0 is China related and the begining of the outbreak is relevant to every country. If patient-0 is really in mid-november, we can safely assume that the virus has spread worldwide even before it was officially announced as a new virus.
This would support the idea that the severity of the disease is really mild (to the point to go unnoticed for a month) and that most countries are over-dramatizing the pandemy.
Estimated Range of Annual Burden of Flu in the U.S. since 2010. ... CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010.

The numbers of deaths simply don't warrant the response we are witnessing... there is something else going on. For anyone with even rudimentary grasp of stats, it is clear that the numbers we are being told do not justify the response.
1) It is propaganda designed to hurt world markets. The virus itself is real, but it is being propagandized to cause fear.
2) There is something about the virus that is not being told to the public. That is the only reason I can think governments would be shutting down over the numbers that have been reported thus far. Maybe the highest levels know it is an accidental or purposeful release of a bioweapon.
