    Though I think classifying it as a terrorist threat is a bit extreme, even considering the circumstances. It's criminal,yeah. Reckless? No doubt. But I think under current law, being labeled a terrorist more or less classifies you as an enemy of the state, which this douchebag very much is not.
    Yes.

    But it's stupid to take a test after so little time since the possible infection moment.
    It must be repeated after 2 weeks.

    We had one guy coughing in people's faces deliberately and spitting at the police officers who came to arrest him, claiming he had corona (he was tested and didn't have it, it was pure provocation). I read today that he got 10 weeks of jail time.

    By tomorrow, Italy will also have more confirmed cases than China.
    And the US will have the most confirmed cases in the world.

    China is now closing their borders in hopes of avoiding a second wave, like what happened to Singapore and Taiwan. We'll see if it works.

    When this was first breaking out, and we had reporters on the ground there, it was hard for them to lie. They tried covering things up at first, but it didn't take long for the world to realize what they were doing, and they eventually ended up complying, and releasing proper data. Those first couple of months were pretty well accurate.

    They've since expelled all western journalists from the country, and now the only news we're getting comes filtered through the Party. They're saying they have everything totally under control, that new infection cases have been dropping over the last week or two, and they expect to be on the other side of this soon.

    ...but is that the truth?

    We don't know what the hell's going on there right now. They could be telling the truth, or they could be lying through their teeth.

    Yup. It's relatively more rare, but there are stories about people as young as 16 dropping from this.

    It's not stories, these are the facts. Your risk goes up with age and with co-morbidities, but that doesn't mean you are safe if you are young and fit.

    The more people that assume this the more that will get infected.

    Also remember that death rate isn't everything. This could have long term consequences even if you recover.

    It's true, cancel the immunocompromised and on dialysis ones.
    No one under 30 here in Italy died if not immunocompromised or on dialysis.

    Of course and I've said "DEADLY version" not by chance.

    The pneumonia is not even present under 20.
    In *infected* persons.

    This. Even if the odds are in your favor, there's still a chance it could kill you. Treat it accordingly.

    Not true. They expelled American journalists, and only from a handful of big news orgs: NYT, WSJ, WaPo, VoA, Time. It was a tit-for-tat move after the US cut the number of Chinese state media reporters with credentials to work in the US. There's still a lot of foreign journalists in China, including Americans. I hear and read reports from Western journalists in China every single day.

    Wuhan is a bit of a special case though. We're reliant on citizen reporters to let us know what's going on inside the closed city, and a few of them have been arrested so the rest have to be careful.

    Coronavirus

    Or you could survive, but with permanent damage to both of your lungs. Lung physicians (is that the correct term?) have reported patients who are cured from Covid but with irreparable lung tissue damage. Don’t know how often this happens, we’ll have to see.

    Edit: this was meant as a reply to Renzatic and SubJeff. I hate posting in Tapatalk.

    well the main misconception out there is that it's an old mans disease hence the reason the young don't appear to give a crap, on top of that the stay at home calls seem more like "suggestions" from the POS Governors who have their head up their ass , so everyone goes out like normal. basically people are doing the OPPOSITE of what they are told.

    It's offical, yall. By the end of the day, we'll have surpassed Italy and China as the global leader in confirmed active Coronavirus cases.

    ...and we're still scrambling for a unified, nationwide response. Only 5 states have enacted a mandatory stay-at-home order thus far.

    Take these data and weight them with the gender distribution here in Italy (it's not 1:1, over 90 is 1:4 / 1:5 for women here in Italy)



    And you'll see that in every age group (90 yo too) there's a 4 times difference between the deaths number of men and women. Or higher.
    Now think about men vs women ACE2 receptors expression in lung tissues.

    On Tuesday, we had our first child death in the US. It was in Los Angeles, and the individual's identity wasn't revealed, but he or she was under 18 and had no pre-existing conditions or known risk factors. IIRC, China also reported a teenager and a baby dying from the disease.

    Not a single chance under 20, not a single chance under 30 if not immunocompromised/with a severe clinical condition BEFORE.
    And this is NOT by chance. It's impossible.

    *no pre-existing conditions*

    KNOWN conditions please.

    I discovered only @22 that I have only 1 kidney and I passed my first years in and out of hospitals.
    Literally in and out and no one EVER thought about this.

    And you know, SARS2 loves kidney tissue.
    It's not a lung-specific infection.

    A 16 year old girl has died of Coronavirus in Paris.

    My Spanish is spotty as hell, but I think it says that it's currently unknown if other underlying conditions helped contribute to her death.

    Some people are safer than others, but no one is totally safe from this. Stay the fuck indoors.
