One caveat with that chart. Looks like data is compiled by the Chinese and likely referring to Chinese deaths there. Im not going out on a limb too much by saying the death rate is quite a bit higher then they would be in first world countries.

Odd the numbers we are getting from Iran shows a higher death rate in younger then 50. Also those high profile stories of doctors kicking the bucket in China all was relatively young doctors.

Israel is saying they might have a vaccine coming. Hopefully it will be ready in time for the Olympics.

My wife is putting in her retirement papers on Monday, she moved everything out of stocks to a safe lower growth portfolio a few weeks ago in preparation for it. She was talking to her investment guy yesterday and he was telling her that she dodged a bullet.

The only thing that's made up is Pres.Trump lying that there are only 20 US cases when there are actually 59.

The European responses aren't ideal but at least the authorities are doing their best. With only 8 out of 100 regional CDC labs able to even test for coronavirus in the US you're gonna get hosed when it finally does start to spread.

Many companies and countries are working on vaccines. However, I don't see how they will be logistically ready for the mass population in a matter of a few months. There's a significant amount of research and development required. In addition, testing is required by most countries before a new vaccine or drug is released to the general population. These things are incredibly labor-intensive and costly. A lot of the general population doesn't realize that. That is why these drugs or vaccines are expensive once they hit the market.

You're forgetting the most important number. How many have been tested for coronavirus in the U.S.? The answer is 459...

Not far from me over on this side of the mountains.

Wonder if stocks like Costco and Walmart are about to see a bump as the panic sets in and people stock up.

i might be a pessimist but i don't think a vaccine will be developed. There has never been a vaccine for any coronavirus species.. we've never had a vaccine for the common cold or SARS (both coronavirus species). The virus just mutates way too fast. As soon as a vaccine is made for it its already changed its appearance to our immune system.

While the media may be over-hyping this and the politicians and people here are pointing the blame game, there may be something much more ominous going on here. Lets say this virus was a man-made experiment designed in a lab in Wuhan that accidentally got out. And, quite possibly the numbers in China are not really known. What we have is something specifically designed for humans. I have never seen a worldwide event such as this.....now I will take my tinfoil hat off and continue where I was.

So now we have a mortality rate that is > 0 for cases in the US that takes into account the US's superior health care system over China's. So we are at 1.5% mortality rate in the US, which makes Covid-19 10x more lethal than the flu (granted it's still a pretty small sample size).

Heard a great interview today with an infectious disease researcher. Seasonal flu in the US has a mortality rate of about .1%. COVID-19 thus far, excluding China, has a mortality rate of 0.8%.
