Re: COVID-19 worldometers data

Thanks for sharing.   The German's are doing something right - 0.4% death rate.  New Zealand did a great job too; while Australia were bone headed like us and are losing control.  May be it is time for us to have a female President. 

The Japanese with half as many people as we have got this under control with minimum damage and they did not have to shut down Tokyo.

Czechia has about 1,000 cases with zero deaths so far, and less than 10 serious cases.

Re: COVID-19 worldometers data

The rate of new cases and deaths is still increasing.

There may be different strains of the virus in various locations, perhaps explaining the diverging mortality rates.

Re: COVID-19 worldometers data

Norbie, o-kaeri! Glad to see you are back and well. How was the Mediterranean? Given his Herculean and inspiring efforts over the weeks while you were gone I now have to agree with you that your man POTUS has managed the American crisis response brilliantly, masterfully and most importantly factually and calmly. I was wrong to ever doubt him, and you. We have found our Churchill. Now I have to go wash my face and not touch my hands.

Anitya, I wouldn't put a lot of faith in the Japan numbers. There is common assumption that the government is cookin' the books and not testing to save the Olympics and not let all that bribe money go to waste. When the Games are inevitably cancelled and there is no reason to continue the charade I'd expect the testing and numbers to soar. Also cherry blossoms come out in a week or so and with them the unending parties under the trees throughout the country. Something you have to see to believe. A virus' heavenly, paradisical dream of crowded humanity drinkin, eating and infecting.

Thanks for that Fpajerski.

Would it be fair to assume the market will continue lower until the number of cases level off?  Or would you guess the market might start to settle out and rise before that, when the curve starts to level off?

Thanks

I think there may be a difference in viral interaction with its host?

Re: COVID-19 worldometers data

Total deaths as a percentage of total cases is widely differing (1%-8%) in the first top ten, but this may have something to do with where each country is on the curve. Curiously, San Marino seems to have had more deaths than cases. I'm guessing if you have less than a million population the numbers get distorted. New cases is probably the number to watch. The other aspect to this is the path the virus took. Most cases have occurred in western countries, so the assumption is they either had direct contact with Wuhan and/or came into secondary contact with those who had direct contact. In Milan, we know the textile industry partners with China. Similar stories with the US and Europe generally. S Korea is a neighbor, but Iran is an odd case as it is isolated from sanctions, so obviously it ramped up trade with China as a result of sanctions. Russia, though seems relatively unaffected.
