    Oh for crying out loud. We all know the EU is failing to test enough people and asymptomatic transmission is more widely recognised now as a potential danger. What good are you claiming this does now, when you claim China had it under control, and was doing test, trace and track and therefore had the numbers at hand to talk about at an early stage when numbers for testing were more manageable? Are you telling me if the EU manages to provide accurate numbers now we can go back in time and impose travel bans like Singapore (which you pointed out was successful at test and trace but failed to point out the travel bans and keeping numbers manageable) and Taiwan in late January/early Feb or show the scale of infection was even larger? The international response has failed. That doesn’t whitewash China’s part in it, or its attempts to minimise what was happening. Kindly get over yourself.

    No, that's you mouth stuffing. More accurate numbers are crucial to slowing down this virus. There's plenty of evidence around. Many countries are scrambling to ramp up testing for that exact reason.

    Too bad you think we should just give up at this stage because we don't have time travel. Perhaps you can write your government back home to get their ass in gear to get ahead of those numbers instead of poking at China who's lightyears ahead in their response. Are they completely out of the woods? No. But at least they can offer their citizens a life that resembles some kind of normalcy.

    Noticed the fatality rate based on reported cases and reported deaths has now crept over 5%.

    The fatality rate based on dead versus recovered is 19%.

    What it really is who knows what with limited testing and people dying outside of hospital not being counted.

    Forgive us if we think of “more accurate numbers” coming out of your mouth as whatever China’s latest definition of as “correct”.

    Too bad you think we should just give up at this stage because we don't have time travel.
    Did somebody mention mouth stuffing?

    I think everybody would appreciate if you just drop it and go back to being ignored as you try to deflect and change the narrative. Otherwise we will both be deservedly banned. Thanks.

    Apologies for unintentionally clogging up the thread (didn’t notice it was global news not opinions). Mods please move and sorry for the trouble.
