Seems children not showing up in dead. Wonder if children have some benefit from immunisation injections early in life.

Seems males from 40 plus especially at risk.

According to Chinese media and HE's facebook post, the PM of Cambodia is going to Wuhan tomorrow.
Hope he's not taking any gift back to the kingdom.

Maybe he'll lead the operation 'clear Wuhan of Corona' himself. The Chinese were probably highly impressed with the way he led the operation in Kep last month.

AKP said he's now waiting for the authorization from the Chinese side, I don't think he's gonna make it tho.

There's not much spared resources for China to spend on receiving a PM and the extra security cost.

Plus, they has already locked down numerous cities in Hubei province. The situation is way worse and there's no reason for them to not keep it hidden.

the two passed away outside of China were 44 and 39 years old.
It's interesting that the only two reported deaths outside of mainland China were of Chinese from Wuhan.

"The man who died in the Philippines was from Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the coronavirus is thought to have originated late last year. He was 44."
https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/02/ ... 39015.html

"The Hong Kong victim was a 39-year-old man from Wuhan, where the virus first originated, who had underlying health problems, the authorities said. It was the second death recorded outside China"

Got to laugh, the Thai Minister of Health did an about turn on his intention to travel on the plane bringing back Thai's. " A dignitary of my importance would have complicated things for the Chinese authorities". Of course he pulled out the stops to make it to the runway tarmac for the obligatory photo op. :bow:

Among the 100 Germans flown out of Wuhan last weekend two have so far been tested positive for the virus, among the 7 Belgiums one shows symptoms and test results are pending.

But as a whole in Wuhan about 8,000 in 11,000,000 were infected at that time according to the official numbers. Really bad luck, those Germans.

We are told mainly elderly and people with underlying diseases die of the virus, but the two passed away outside of China were 44 and 39 years old. Really bad luck for those two too.

Glad all’s well in the KoW.
OK addition. The person from Belgium was tested positive, but they repatriated 9, not 7.

His remarks followed comments by critics challenging him to visit Cambodian students stranded in the central Chinese city.
“HE dares to fight the war. He dares to rescue the nation. HE dares to risk his life to end the war. Why wouldn’t HE dare to go to Wuhan city to visit Cambodian students? You don’t know what HE is capable of, so don’t dare him,” he said.

There have been more than 17,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 361 deaths in mainland China. Outside China, there are more than 150 confirmed cases, as well as one death, in the Philippines.
