2 weeks ago, New York had 300 cases. Today they have 30,000. First time in the pandemic a city had 1,000 deaths in a 24hr period. Guess where? You got it, New York City.

It's just the maths. Exponential maths is a cruel thing. Watch this space!

Well, if New York had 1000 deaths in a 24hr period, (not saying they didn't) and that was to increase Exponentially, by day 24 there wouldn't be a person left on earth to report it.

Reminds me of the old one of a Blacksmith and Farmer arguing over the cost of shoeing the farmers horse.

In the end the Blacksmith said I'll put the first nail in for 1c and we'll double up from there.

Let's say there are five nails in each shoe and the horse had four legs.

How much did the farmer have to pay the blacksmith?

Not quite, not at all actually
There isnt a 100% death rate and isnt a 100% contagion rate .
So , at the very worst, assuming EVERYONE gets it, 2-10% of the population dies .
But still not that simple, some races are possibly less prone to adverse effects than others, some blood types less prone to adverse effect of Corona . But not enough hard data to be sure.
Could be why Sweeden is doing not all that bad considering they arnt in lockdown at all.

Just 100% speculation, Italy & NY both hit very hard. Perhaps those of Italian descent are more prone to needing hospitalization/dying from Corona than others?

Look, they said Italys reporting is a bit skewed.
My husband is one of those that would die for sure if he got. Can it then be said he died of the virus?
Cause a cold will kill him too. Hell, catching nothing and he could die anytime.
His health is so bad now if he goes quiet at night I reach over to see if he is still warm. Considering usually he pants like a steam train and any exertion causes bad results. So when the noise stops, I worry.

If he did get it I would say they'd write that down. If it was a cold they wouldn't....

I understand what you are saying. My mother in law's death certificate had heart attack on it but she died in a hospice riddled with bowel cancer.

Well slightly happier news. Went shopping today, thought we'd try today rather than Monday.

Less queues, Pak n Save still out of flour but other stuff seemed OK.
Countdown did have flour, not that we need any....

But it was improved. Pak N Save had normal prices, some of Countdowns were infaled the scummy price gougers.

(We only get my mums special milk there, my Epicure cheese and the \$2 biccies - \$2 biccies were still \$2.)

Does that mean every country now has it ? just wondering,
Is there actually any place that has not had it ?

is there a stats page that tells us when the first case was reported and then by country when they had their first case ? like an order of countries........ ?

Scroll down. Sorted by country. Yes quite a few have no cases.

Epicure - the tastiest and most expensive of the Mainland range
