    Default Death by Corona numbers explode to 61

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/abcnews...%3fid=69602911

    Running low on substitute adjectives for ‘creep’ and ‘crawl’ so I went with the sarcastic angle in the OP title.

    Related news: at least one doctor thinks the CHINA virus has already been in WV since there have been a cluster of people with flu like symptoms that tested negative for seasonal flu virus over the past 6-8 weeks. Could easily be true and if it is, the virulence of the virus is unremarkable with respect to the vast majority of people.

    Also, if true, the actual number of Corona cases is a lot higher than the number of confirmed cases, nationally. This is probably what prompted the expert in OH to speculate that OH could have 100k cases of the virus.

    But if all of this is true, look at the number in the OP title—and think.

    Those numbers are about to explode.

    The confirmed reports are only a fraction of the actual, and we are about to finally get the testing capacity we needed 6 weeks ago.

    As soon as the full testing capacity comes online we are likely to see a huge spike in the reported numbers.

    I guarantee it lol.

    But why is the death toll so low? Could it be possible we’re dealing with a virus that is less lethal than the common flu?

    Not everyone should be tested.

    “Criteria to Guide Evaluation and Laboratory Testing for COVID-19
    Clinicians should continue to work with their local and state health departments to coordinate testing through public health laboratories. In addition, COVID-19 diagnostic testing, authorized by the Food and Drug Administration under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), is becoming available in clinical laboratories. This additional testing capacity will allow clinicians to consider COVID-19 testing for a wider group of symptomatic patients.

    Clinicians should use their judgment to determine if a patient has signs and symptoms compatible with COVID-19 and whether the patient should be tested. Most patients with confirmed COVID-19 have developed fever1 and/or symptoms of acute respiratory illness (e.g., cough, difficulty breathing). Priorities for testing may include:

    Hospitalized patients who have signs and symptoms compatible with COVID-19 in order to inform decisions related to infection control.
    Other symptomatic individuals such as, older adults and individuals with chronic medical conditions and/or an immunocompromised state that may put them at higher risk for poor outcomes (e.g., diabetes, heart disease, receiving immunosuppressive medications, chronic lung disease, chronic kidney disease).
    Any persons including healthcare personnel2, who within 14 days of symptom onset had close contact3 with a suspect or laboratory-confirmed4 COVID-19 patient, or who have a history of travel from affected geographic areas5 (see below) within 14 days of their symptom onset”

    The fact that covid 19 has a lower death rate than the flu is why it is going to kill more people. It is less traceable, (it doesn't leave a quick trail of bodies which is easy to track,) so it will spread wider and further, killing more.

    Let me see if I can unravel that lol.

    Let’s start with ‘killing more’. The death toll from seasonal flu is up around 20,000 or so. Given the state of hysteria over COVID-19, I shudder to think what’s going to happen if it gets to 2,000.

    The rest of it makes no sense.
