Good thread guys.

We've made it to the top 17 in Oz today.

France and Italy have been in total lock down for over a week but for the occasional idiot still roaming the streets. This thing has a bit of inertia. No slowing down in sight yet.

Passed Portugal as of 4pm so 16th, better than the 15th place this morning! But because symptoms may not manifest themselves for up to 14 days (and even more in rare cases), today's figures represent the situation well in the past. We won't see our present situation for another week or two. That is scarey because our numbers have been doubling every 3-4 days. Also, because our volume of testing lags behind many countries, those figures may very well be understated too!

Stay safe everyone, and eyes on the sky!

Cheers -

Yep. The immunologists in Europe my family sent me that link. Scary mathematics.

I like Peter Doherty’ s clever article that gives people a positive timeline where simple but decisive actions make a difference. He lashes the misbehaving and credits the application of controls in a public forum with some authority . Maybe it helps to keep containment.

Very interesting thanks. Perhaps these widely available tests will help if they can be validated.

Talked to relos in France this morning. Although they've been in lockdown for two weeks already it looks like they're going to implement a new six weeks confinement from this week onwards. Despite all the isolation measures put in place there is no slowing down in the spread of infections. Medical personel are getting ill so are police forces in the street trying to keep people indoors. Doesn't look good at all.

Interesting that Nigeria, population 204 million, has just 40 odd reported cases.

They also have bugger-all in the way of a health care system...and just one doctor for every 2500 citizens.

It will be interesting to see how quickly this bug burns through their population, I dare say there will be virtually no testing/distancing/quarantine measures. Their circumstances will likely be an example of the "do nothing" model.

To reiterate, the number of reported cases will be based on testing results. If tests are not being done, the numbers will be low. How many tests are being done in Nigeria?

Virtually none I'd suspect.

Given half the population is urbanized, millions will have it there within weeks and we'll be none the wiser.

Their Median age is however quite young...just 18 years...half that of Oz. May well be, they get a herd immunity with relatively few deaths.

Herd immunity only works if the virus doesn't mutate.
According to the news the type of the Corona Virus in Germany and Italy has mutated from the version that started in China.
