Tip of the iceberg I suspect, that are just the stats for people that have been tested, the local witch doctor in the village isn't going to have a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction testing kit tucked away in his shed, in fact not many places have.

Fewer and fewer people are even talking about this as it fizzles out and becomes yesterday's news.

Meanwhile, in Viet Nam:

After a brief lull, foreign tourists throng Nha Trang beaches again
Thousands of Russian tourists are basking in the sun at Nha Trang beaches with no worries whatsoever over the coronavirus epidemic.

The famous beach destination is bustling even as the Ministry of Health said Monday that Khanh Hoa Province, where it is located, could be declared free of the novel coronavirus epidemic soon. The central province has not recorded a single infection for 30 days.

Not sure it has jumped, been pretty steady at 110-120 deaths per day for the last 4 days. Yesterday was actually the lowest of the 4 days.

China virus cases drop as foreign fears rise

WORLD: Fears mounted today (Feb 22) over the rise of new cases and fatalities outside China from the new coronavirus outbreak, as the World Health Organization warned of a shrinking window to stem the spread of the deadly disease.

The warning came as the first European died from the new COVID-19 strain, which first emerged in December in central China but has now spread to over 25 countries and caused over a dozen deaths outside the country.

In total, there are 2,360 confirmed dead and almost 78,000 infected.

Meanwhile, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that the “window of opportunity” to contain the international spread of the outbreak was “narrowing”, as cases surged across the Middle East and in South Korea.

He warned that if countries did not quickly mobilise to fight the spread of the virus, “this outbreak could go in any direction. It could even be messy.”

Oh yes, of course intelligence-linked media outlets pushing a globalist agenda are still talking about it.

But even they admit "China virus cases drop" as they try to keep people afraid with vague statements like "could go in any direction" or "could even be messy".

Maybe people need a bit of fear so as to facilitate change in behaviour such as personal hygiene ( Washing hands etc ), slowing down the spread and buying time for a vaccine to be developed.

Confusion in Cambodia amid questions over virus on cruise ship
Malaysia declares woman from ship docked in Cambodia virus free amid anger over HE decision to welcome passengers.
by Andrew Nachemson & Yon Sineat
22 minutes ago

Phnom Penh, Cambodia - Cambodia's Prime Minister HE is accustomed to scathing criticism from the international community for his human rights record.

But last week, he was widely praised when he welcomed a cruise liner that had been stranded at sea for more than two weeks amid fears passengers on board may be carrying the deadly new coronavirus. The ship, with more than 2,000 people, had been turned away by at least three other countries after hundreds of infections were reported on another cruise liner docked in Japan.

On February 14, HE travelled to the southwestern city of Sihanoukville to personally greet the MS Westerdam's passengers. He presented them with flowers as they disembarked and even hugged some of them.

At the time, there were no reported cases of the infection, known as COVID-19, on the ship.

HE's government went on to arrange tours for the disembarked passengers and floated the idea of hosting a party for them.

The celebratory mood soured days later, however, when an 83-year-old passenger from the ship tested positive for the virus when she arrived in Malaysia. She was declared virus-free on Friday, nearly a week after she was admitted, but remains hospitalised because she continues to show symptoms, Malaysian authorities said.
