The other possibility is that a lab worker sold an infected lab animal as food to make a little extra pocket money. This has been done before in China. There is a reason why CCP would not allow the CDC in nor initially WHO.

Still evidence of poor quality control practices.

9471 new cases and 134 new deaths in the United States. New York Governor Cuomo says: [live streaming]

Peak number of cases is still 2 to 3 weeks away in New York

"We've procured about 7,000 ventilators. We need, as a minimum, other 30,000 ventilators. This is a critical and desperate need for ventilators [..] We need them in 14 days. Fema is sending 400 ventilators only. Federal action is needed to address this now through the Federal Defense Production Act"

"The numbers are higher in New York because it started here first, it has a lot of international travelers and has high density, but you will see this in cities all across the country, and in suburban communities. Where we are today, you'll be in 4 weeks or 6 weeks.

Probably "hundreds of thousands of people" have already had Covid-19, didn't know they had it, and recovered. Should be tested for antibodies so they could go back to work and keep the economy going

It would be interesting if the US would have as well all the data on the  site


They seem not to have or gather all the data, but only nationally reported (at CDC level). I understand it is difficult for them to coordinate them across states down to local level. However, they to get organized and put protocols in place, otherwise they miss important insights to act upon. Gathering the data afterwards only helps to study stats and history.

Yes, I do not mean that. I talked today to a friend of mine, he is a doctor in a hospital ( dot ask me the name of it...I forgot:mellow:) in the state MD. I asked him about testing and how they report. He told me that they have quite an increase but test results are not put into any "national DB", but their own patient DB. When these resuls are extracted and aggregated he cannot say. Per example Spain or Italy of course have a national health care system with one IT system, so there data are nearly instant, but that is a different story..

Seriously there is no way to instantly report into a national database from every level of medical containment at our disposal.  Where would you start?  The hospital/doc office? County? state?    They are making the changes needed as they go on.  

I think they are doing as well as possible and for sure not everything is going into the system since this is pretty much of a first for all of us.  

As time goes on I think they will be able to adjust better, and numbers will become a little more accurate and up to date, but right now there's enough hit and miss to go around.

WHO Press Briefing:

"We understand that countries are trying to assess when and how they will be able to ease these measures.

The answer depends on what countries do while these population-wide measures are in place.

Asking people to stay at home and shutting down population movement is buying time and reducing the pressure on health systems, but on their own, these measures will not extinguish the epidemics.

The point of these actions is to enable the more precise and targeted measures that are needed to stop transmission and save lives. We call on all countries that have introduced so-called "lockdown" measures to use this time to attack the virus. You have created a second window of opportunity. The question is: how will you use it? There are 6 key actions that we recommend:

1. expand, train, and deploy your health care and public health workforce

2. implement a system to find every suspected case at the community level

3. rump up production capacity and availability of testing

4. identify, adapt, and equipt facilities you will use to treat patients

5. develop a clear plan and process to quarantine contacts

6. refocus the whole of government on suppressing and controlling COVID-19

These measures are the best way to suppress and stop transmission so that when restrictions are lifted, the virus doesn't resurge.

The last thing any country needs is to reopen schools and businesses only to be forced to close them again because of a resurgence"

5210 new cases and 683 new deaths in Italy. 4th day in a row with daily new cases below the 6557 peak reached on March 21. Protezione Civile chief Borrelli, the person usually holding the daily press conference, is at home with a fever, while the former chief Bertolaso is now hospitalized in Milan after having tested positive to the virus

During the press conference, Protezione Civile officials were asked to clarify what the "change in active cases" ("incremento delle persone attualmente positive") really represents, after our website had raised the issue of Italian media reporting the change in active cases (a lower number) rather than the change in total cases (a higher number), incorrectly representing it as "newly infected" when, in fact, it represents the "change in active cases"

Newly infected, meaning the number of people who have tested positive to the virus in the last day, corresponds to the number Worldometer has always reported, which is the change in total cases in accordance with the international standards set by the WHO and followed by all countries. An important figure which can be compared to newly recovered, as we do in our charts.

The change in active cases (what most Italian media incorrectly label as "newly infected") is the result of the following formula: (newly infected) - (new deaths) - (new recoveries).

Sharing the goal of providing the correct interpretation of data, we are pleased to notice that a few days ago, one of the leading Italian newspapers, Corriere della Sera, began reporting the figures correctly [source] [source]

SAN FRANCISCO — At least eight strains of the coronavirus are making their way around the globe, creating a trail of death and disease that scientists are tracking by their genetic footprints.While much is unknown, hidden in the virus's unique microscopic fragments are clues to the origins of its original strain, how it behaves as it mutates and which strains are turning into conflagrations while others are dying out thanks to quarantine measures.  Huddled in once bustling and now almost empty labs, researchers who oversaw dozens of projects are instead focused on one goal: tracking the current strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that cause the illness COVID-19.Labs around the world are turning their sequencing machines, most about the size of a desktop printer, to the task of rapidly sequencing the genomes of virus samples taken from people sick with COVID-19. The information is uploaded to a website called NextStrain.org that shows how the virus is migrating and splitting into similar but new subtypes.Investigation:  How federal health officials mislead states and derailed the best chance at containment.While researchers caution they're only seeing the tip of the iceberg, the tiny differences between the virus strains suggest shelter-in-place orders are working in some areas and that no one strain of the virus is more deadly than another. They also say it does not appear the strains will grow more lethal as they evolve. “The virus mutates so slowly that the virus strains are fundamentally very similar to each other,” said Charles Chiu, a professor of medicine and infectious disease at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.The SARS-CoV-2 virus first began causing illness in China sometime between mid-November and mid-December. Its genome is made up of about 30,000 base pairs. Humans, by comparison, have more than 3 billion. So far even in the virus's most divergent strains scientists have found only 11 base pair changes.That makes it easy to spot new lineages as they evolve, said Chiu.“The outbreaks are trackable. We have the ability to do genomic sequencing almost in real-time to see what strains or lineages are circulating,” he said.So far, most cases on the U.S. West Coast are linked to a strain first identified in Washington state. It may have come from a man who had been in Wuhan, China, the virus’ epicenter, and returned home on Jan. 15. It is only three mutations away from the original Wuhan strain, according to work done early in the outbreak by Trevor Bedford, a computational biologist at Fred Hutch, a medical research center in Seattle.On the East Coast there are several strains, including the one from Washington and others that appear to have made their way from China to Europe and then to New York and beyond, Chiu said.Death rate soars in New Orleans coronavirus 'disaster' that could define city for generationsBeware pretty phylogenetic treesThis isn’t the first time scientists have scrambled to do genetic analys

New York Governor Cuomo Daily Briefing:

Everything we do now (procure ventilators etc) is in preparation for possible apex (when curve hits the highest point)

Apex in New York is estimated in 14-21 days from now

We'll keep COVID-19 patients separated from the other patients in hospitals

We can now test for antibodies to determine whether a person had COVID-19. This is a blood test

172 new ICU admission in the last day, vs. 374  in the preceding day, may indicate a decline in the growth rate

155,934 people tested in New York State

We need a faster testing process. Can't wait 5 days as it is now. Other countries now also have home tests. We should do the same

54 new cases (all of which were imported from abroad), 3 new deaths (all in Hubei), and 367 new recoveries occurred in China on March 27, as reported by the National Health Commission (NHC) of China [source] .

Starting on Saturday, March 28, China is closing its borders to foreigners to protect its citizens from a potential second wave of infections [source]. Almost all new recent cases in China were imported from abroad
