THese numbers seem bad until you compare them to our yearly flu numbers.

900 deaths in over 2 months from Corona virus

5000 deaths per month in the USA from regular flu

China counts deaths differently than we do. The real death count is orders of magnitude higher. It's nothing like the flu. 20% of patients develop serious pneumonia. One in 5 hospitalized dies.

Not to mention the silly bastard is using gross numbers instead of %. New corona managed those kills with far fewer people to tangle with.

Let's avoid expanding the sample size and giving it more immune systems to test out.

The US ratio of fatal cases is 0.00%.

Ebola would have killed some of the US cases by now.

It's  under 20 cases in the US. Ebola is definitely more deadly but this virus spreads through the air, that changes everything.

Besides the fact that 0.00% isn't a ratio, Ebola killed 2 people in the US in total.  The entire time it was active.  Ever.  To try and use *that* fact as a way to prove a point is silly at best.

I probably wouldn't be paying attention to it at all if china hadn't already shut down half the country.  Regardless of the numbers being published, we know it has an R0 of between 2.2 and 4.0 and a mortality rate 20-40 times more than the flu.  That alone should at least raise an eyebrow or two.

Yeah but it'll slow some of us down a bit and improve the appearance of a few.

We all know that these numbers are useless.  With the hospitals no longer taking new patients and the chinese governement sealing up untire apartment buildings, who knows how many people have died in their homes.

We'll likely never know how many it kills, possibly because China itself will never know.

It is real. Notice there is at least a modicum of respect for the dead by putting their jackets on top of the body bag.
