So there are 40,000 cases reported, he says there are actually 400,000 as 360,000 are not recorded? That’s absurd

Sounds plausible as many have mild or no symptoms.

Yes, I have no doubt there are some unreported cases but so say 90% are not recorded I don’t believe. Especially with how this is being treated, as an end of world outbreak.

There's so much about this whole affair that is unreported/unknown.

Ultimately, we won't know until long after it's all blown over.

If I were Chinese, and had a cold or flu type symptoms, the last place I would go is out in public/to a health centre, as they are probably complete shitshows.

900+ recorded deaths, 3500 recorded recoveries
=> ~20% mortality

stats are extremely ambiguous at this stage
stats and conclusions based on speculation are laughable

exactly, of the 35k+ currently infected (officially), more than 6k are in serious or critical condition
the true picture is very unclear, but this is not just the flu

Not to mention that if you even have some vague symptom the CCP can pick you up and toss you in a metal box and cart you away (see the first 35 seconds of the video below) or physically lock your entire family (and everyone in the entire building) inside their units with the locks on the outside for as long as they feel like (second video below).

Premature to apply the formula until everything is over. The 3500 recoveries are probably based on the 8000 infected case over a week ago. So, there is a much longer queue that is on the way to recovery.
