The Diamond Princess was the worst case scenario, according to Levitt. “If you compare the ship to a country—we are talking 250,000 people crowded into one square kilometer, which is horribly crowded. It is four times the crowding in Hong Kong. It is as if the entire Isaeli population was crammed into 30 square kilometers.” Furthermore, he said, the ship had a central air conditioning and heating system and a communal dining room. “Those are extremely comfortable conditions for the virus and still, only 20% were infected. It is a lot, but pretty similar to the infection rate of the common flu.”

As with the flu, most of those dying as a result of coronavirus are over 70 years old, Levitt said. “It is a known fact that the flu mostly kills the elderly—around three-quarters of flu mortalities are people over 65.” To put things in proportion: “there are years when flu is raging, like in the U.S. in 2017, when there were three times the regular number of mortalities. And still, we did not panic. That is my message: you need to think of corona like a severe flu. It is four to eight times as strong as a common flu, and yet, most people will remain healthy and humanity will survive.”

Michael Levitt penned this gem 4 days ago, before Italy melted down. But thanks anyway.

I wonder if the reason for the “silent spreaders” (people who are Wuhan-positive and can spread the disease but show no symptoms) is that they actually have Wuhan but their symptoms are so mild they don’t notice.

One thing I might quibble with is the people eventually got off the ship, thereby freezing the infection rate. But that may serve as a surrogate for the measures that are and will likely continue to be done, like social distancing, more scrupulous hygiene, etc.



To: catnipman

I can’t wait for the stories in a few weeks about how Government saved America from the deadly threat. And how close we came to mass extinction.

They will never admit it’s name is SARS2. SARS 1 had a special affinity for asian peoples and was a dud in America.
There is a weird fluor cold every year in asia. This was nothing more than a deliberate plan by China and the Democrat party to turn it into a crisis that they could shriek that Trump was screwing up and they could use to crash the economy.

Uh oh.

Now they have to come up with something new, since THIS didn’t work, after Russia Russia Russia, Stormy Daniels, pussy grabbing, two ice cream scoops, un-presidential, and others didn’t work.

If it wasn’t a bio weapon it should go with the coming of spring like other flu seasons.

That is my message: you need to think of corona like a severe flu.

Except with billions of dollars poured into cures and vaccines. There are over 90 pharmaceutical companies working on a cure and vaccine, several are showing great progress (not factored into the death rate), Favilavir, Remdesivir, Actemra, REGN3048-3051, HIV Drugs, Chloroquine, blood transfusions from survivors, etc.

The mortality rate will continue to decline. If this effort was spent on the flu yearly, we could reduce the death rate by by at least a third, saving 40,000 lives a year.

Lets not forget the flu virii they “guess at” for a current winter season is based on what goes on beforehand in asia. They try to guess what will be coming our way from them for the next year.

So duh.
