    Another 76 deaths in Sweden in the past 24 hours, with a population not much bigger than Hong Kong's.

    "CDC director Dr Robert Redfield estimates that as many as
    1 in 4
    people with coronavirus are asymptomatic, i.e. will not show outward symptoms, but can still pass the virus on without knowing."

    It's just an incidental indicator that the herd immunity is progressing well.

    BBC reporting on the wildlife trade:

    Wet markets can be "timebombs" for epidemics, says Prof Andrew Cunningham, deputy director of science at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). "This sort of way that we treat... animals as if they're just our commodities for us to plunder - it comes back to bite us and it's no surprise."

    I really hope some good can come out of this experience in changing the way we treat wild and farmed animals.

    I don't believe any conspiracy theories at all about this virus. It takes zero stretch of the imagination for anyone who's been to a Chinese wet market to understand that a disease would spread like this.

    Are they all passenger flights, or could some / many be cargo, mail flights?
