Latest study from Wuhan has the final fatality ratio at 0.12%

Far far less than the figures being bandied about when all this broke

It's way too early to be talking about final fatality rates in Wuhan or anywhere else you utter spangle.

Well the fatality rate has dropped to a trickle, averaging under 10 a day for quite a while now. (See below) 

Obviously there will probably never be a final fatality rate as this will probably be an annual virus, just less of a drama when a vaccination is available.

Let's see what happens when they allow local restrictions to be lifted.

Then we need to see what happens when they allow full travelling in and out of the country.

You’ll need to take that up with the health experts actually in Wuhan who wrote the report.

Albeit, you are probably right. The final death rate will probably be much lower.

Indeed, if the existing severe health conditions that the vast majority of the deceased had are attributed with the deaths then the final fatality rate will probably be close to zero

You moron

Interesting and, as of almost a month ago this............................

China is already, and rightfully, working to bolster its economy, reopen its schools and return to a more normal semblance of its society, even as it works to contain the remaining chains of COVID-19 transmission. Appropriately, a science-based, riskinformed and phased approach is being taken, with a clear recognition and readiness of the need to immediately react to any new COVID-19 cases or clusters as key elements of the containment strategy are lifted.

There is certainly no point in political point scoring. Sturgeon attends the same meetings as Johnson and is doing very little that is different. A few days ago Blackford was still chuntering on about Independence like an Independent Scotland would be better placed. McDowell and Corbyn think the government should do more - theres a surprise eh? And the Lib Dems and Farage have become so irrelevant they aren't saying a thing. 
I've no idea how the huge cash giveaway is going to work but I hope everyone plays fair and that we don't see companies that don't need help to stay afloat claiming it. I also hope that bosses that do claim it ensure it reaches the staff its meant to help and where they can they top it up too, as was stated in the briefing, to pay staff 100% of their salary. 
 
Political leaders from all the parties are offering constructive advice and wanting to ensure as much as possible is done. Thanks for confirming the lack of political point scoring by offering no examples of it.

Got my test results back yesterday. Negative. Not sure how to feel about that??

I’ve no got coronavirus - yaaaaaay!

I can still get coronavirus - boooooo!

So, that's 2 from the 3 who thought they had the virus now didn't. (You and LPM)

W6 was the 3rd, doubt he's got it, he'd have told us plenty of times. 

I did say statistically the chances were astronomical, seems I'm no bad at statistics after all. :lol:

They aren't doing it, but you certainly are. 
You are the one being ridiculous. 
Again no examples, just fatuous statements from you.
I've been critical of governments slow response to this. That isn't political point scoring, particularly as I haven't been supporting any other politician when doing so.

You know Stuart you appeared back on here during the kibble debate and unlike most other contributors I gave you a clean slate and engaged in that debate with you, supporting some views, disagreeing with others.
It seems however ever since that vote was sorted, possibly before, you've resorted to type and it's all about the petty trolling so beloved of those one or two sad individuals who liked certain posts you made.

It's going to be a long few weeks, however seeing the trolls turn on each other and start to, metaphorically at least, eat other on this forum might be one of the few highlights (if anyone with any sanity is still bothering with the forum by that point).

I cannot believe anyone thinks there is a shred of truth in any figures issued by the Chinese authorities. The situation in Italy proves they have been talking utter shite since day 1. Folk will only start to realise the true extent when we reach the levels Italy are experiencing and there is no reason to think they won't. The government are constantly telling us it's going to be that way, our measures are simply to flatten the curve in comparison to Italy. We should prepare for a long and worsening haul here.
