To lower probability even more. No need to be reckless even at night

It’s a little bit like walking across a highway with some lanes. If you watch any certain point over time, the very most of the time there is absolutely no car, no truck, simply only the asphalt ‘waiting’, also between two cars is very much space, a multiple of a car length, at night you’ll observe even less cars etc., but then , if you ever start to walk, it is rather probable that you’re hit and then a certain probability, rather high, that you die after the hit or later in hospital. Now transfer that picture to corona virus problems for an imagination how the danger and percentages are. I suggest some Bayes or a probability tree calculation for details.

Do the 28 "coronavirus-related" deaths include suicides due coronavirus - induced causes and stresses?

How about a breakdown by age groups (60s,70s,80s,...)?

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Obviously the low testing rates make the data less representative of the entire population but shouldn’t we be talking percentages?

Absolutely yes.

It makes more sense to speak in percentages.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

That’s 8.4% of those tested that are testing positive - up from the 6% last week. Obviously the low testing rates make the data less representative of the entire population but shouldn’t we be talking percentages? Even with less virus cases reported today, numbers are continuing to rise.

The percentage of cases is hovering around the same despite lower numbers of tests.

Zoroto - Did they die?

I fail to see why this point is so relevant to so many people. I’m sure I’d they were to contract the virus and spend three months in hospital on a ventilator and spend the rest of their lives with asthma-like symptoms from scarring on their lungs perhaps they would realize that the number of deaths is not so important.

@monty

funny !

Close to 10% positive rate...not good.

Did they die

Good question indeed...media doesn't report the reason for when the severe symptom patient numbers decrease...but the number of deaths seems to be creeping up week by week.

That's an interesting question. I never thought about that.
