Data sources

This is a list of some of the main data sources we use: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Probably the best source of the latest COVID-19 statistics https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Tomas Pueyo has written a number of very good summaries of the strategies to overcome coronavirus https://www.capitaleconomics.com/the-economic-effects-of-the-coronavirus/ Good source of fast-moving China economic stats. https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ If you want to be bombarded with every breaking news story, this is the place https://ncov.dxy.cn/ncovh5/view/pneumonia  Faster than worldometers for Chinese data, but slower on rest of the world data. I don’t think China cases matter anymore. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports I’m less enamoured of the WHO data now than I was at the start of the crisis. They are providing less information now than they were at the start of the crisis, and it sometimes contradicts country-level data. https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 The prettiest pictures, but one of the slower sites to update. I don’t find the charts that useful. https://www.youtube.com/user/MEDCRAMvideos has a daily youtube wrap-up https://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisMartensondotcom has a daily youtube wrap-up

  1. Trump just declared epidemic over … there is a treatment and he will make it free for everyone.

    Now world can focus on 25% unemployment I guess …
    Some places like Australia more like 35% unemployment

      • Why would you care about the test when there is a treatment.
        Large % of worlds population would test positive on herpes simplex or some other viruses but none carea because those viruses are not dangerous … same with corona now when even those at most risk – old and obese, are safe

        • The percentage I care is directly proportional to where the herpes is located (above the chin or below the belt).

  2. Meanwhile chinese tourists sites and cities are absolutely packed to the gills for golden week

    No social distancing
    No “new normal”

    • They got drugs on time prior to releasing the virus
      And sacrificed only few k older people in wuhan just to pretend they got hit as well

  3. Victoria will not follow the NSW quarantine model of telling anyone linked to a coronavirus outbreak to self-isolate for 14 days even if their initial COVID-19 test result is negative.

    Hundreds of NSW residents who were potentially exposed to coronavirus at the Crossroads Hotel in July were told to isolate for 14 days even after receiving a negative COVID-19 test. The same advice has been given to people in subsequent outbreaks across Sydney.

    But Premier Daniel Andrews said he does not want to divert resources from where they are needed most. “I don’t want people sitting at home for 14 days when there’s no good scientific reason for them to do that,” he said.

    “It’s one thing to ask you to stay at home, but we go and check that you are [at home]. So, if we’ve got enormous numbers of people who really don’t need to be then that’s where your resources get focused, rather than where they should be focused, which is based on the latest evidence, the latest intelligence, the latest science about who’s the greatest risk.”

    • Is this fkn bloke for real?

      Doesn’t have the “resources” to check that exposed people are staying home, but has plenty of police to go and harrass pregnant women going for a walk, and plenty of secret agents to track facebook groups and perform secret raids on dissidents

      • There was “no good scientific reason” for:
        Masks (other than in a clinical setting)
        Lock down
        5km radius
        Ring of steel /covid proof fence
        Restrictions on who you can associate with in your own home
        Restrictions on which businesses can operate

        No scientific basis what so ever. See Heneghan, Gupta, Sikora et al.

        • Put that all aside

          The chairman is saying he won’t get contacts of known cases to quarantine, because he doesn’t have the resources to check up on them

          Just ponder the fking stupidity AND hypocrisy of that for a moment

          There isn’t even any internal logical consistency

    The death rate hasn’t moved much though for the UK or Spain so there must be some significant improvements in treating it.

    • No. More liberal testing finding the milder cases that flew under the radar earlier in the year.

      • Either way it’s a positive development which shows the virus is not as deadly as first feared.
