    The CCP is really, really scared of the virus, more now than ever. And it's not just foreigners who are stigmatized, by the way — people from Hubei, too. When the people of Wuhan exit lockdown, they will face discrimination and prejudice in the short term everywhere they go, too.
    They don’t seem that confident of controlling the virus if they have to scapegoat foreigners and prevent flights landing in Beijing. Remind me again who opposed travel restrictions due to SARS-2?

    Isn’t test and trace enough?

    If you can't find the answer then can you give me the proportion of asymptomatic cases just for one EU member?

    All I can find is numbers coming out of non-EU members such as Iceland at 50%, Korea and China at 30%, and a Japanese study of Wuhan returnees that puts it also at 30%.
    Yes but China HAD THE NUMBERS. By providing them a better picture of how the virus works and spreads could have been ascertained earlier. Data is king at this early stage.

    Small protest in Metro Manila. The Mayor of Quezon City has been getting a lot of flack, she is not comparing well to other Mayors. Still "dozens" in the most populous city in the Philippines is not a lot.

    I hope it works better there. In Madrid we also turned the convention centre into a makeshift hospital. Firefighters working with plumbers and other skilled workers designed an oxygen piping system with intakes ever meter or two to allow for all beds to have respirators (provided there are respirators). Technically an amazing feat. But it's turning to be a clusterfuck to manage, with no clear way of doing things. I reckon they forgot to hire a hospital manager? Hope the management works better in the UK.

    That depends though. There was a lot of confusion at that time as to the accuracy of tests and keeping the count between different provinces in sync. Remember the huge jump in numbers where they added CT scans to the count? It ended up that several flu cases were counted. Asymptomatic cases can also turn symptomatic. Hence the difficulty determining the accurate proportion at the time.

    The reality is, it's March and we're still not quite certain of how this virus works. Numbers will solidify as we get a more accurate picture.

    This gives a clearer picture.

    And this is exactly where Geoexpat fits in.

    Still, Reingold acknowledged that armchair analysis among epidemiologists doesn't take into account the realities on the ground in Hubei.
    Still waiting on the number of asymptomatic from EU countries? How can we accurately determine whether this virus is mutating and to see whether there are any changes in the patterns? How can Africa prepare? @AsianXpat0

    Since you like abc as a news source. abcnews.go.com/amp/Health/coronavirus-turnaround-wuhan-back/

    While most new reported cases in China in recent weeks are of the imported variety from Europe or the U.S., a local transmission case popped up over the weekend in the western province of Gansu. It was brought in by a man from Hubei province who had been allowed to leave the former epicenter with an all-clear "green health code."
    You have been talking past everyone now for a long while in an attempt to pursue your preferred narrative. I’m not going to engage you since I don’t get 50 cents per post. I own my own mind and am capable of putting in my two cents (and recognising that’s what it’s worth) but at my own discretion, thanks.

    Yes, new cases will appear. It's not a secret. China never claimed that this isn't an ongoing battle.

    Can you tell me the number of asymptomatic cases for the EU now or is that a secret?

    This article referring to a preprint study looks interesting.
