    Italy is known for its enormous morbidity in respiratory problems, more than three times any other European country. In the US about 40,000 people die in a regular flu season and so far 40-50 people have died of the coronavirus, most of them in a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington.

    None of them have.


    Meanwhile CDC is projecting up to 200,000 deaths WITH mitigation and up to 2,200,000 without it. But what's 2 million deaths to the economy?

    That's a pretty good summary of HK under Beijing rule. I knew you'd come to see it our way.

    UK is ordering millions of test kits to see if you are immune after suffering from the virus. It does seem to be the plan to get herd immunity.

    The government said it was going for herd immunity and is now buying the kit to see if the country develops it.

    Do you support that approach, if it really is their approach?

    Pointing to the city’s growing outbreak, Lam noted the number of cases had risen threefold from 138 recorded two weeks ago. “Many of the infected people went to bars, weddings and private parties, which we categorise as social interactions,” she said.
    So I just realised, the recent regulations closed cinemas, but bars remain open and weddings continue?

    Thanks Carrie.
