    I thought the cure was Campbell's chicken noodle soup, DayQuil, and Sprite

    According to that NY Times article modeling experts are looking at the way it’s spreading to other countries and seem confident it’s greater than 100,000. China understating the number of infected seems to be unfortunately exaggerating the mortality rate for them. I don’t think anyone is questioning that the mortality rate is much lower than SARS. That’s just pretty much agreed upon by everyone.

    Certainly hope this is right but n’s are small and unreliable at this point, no? (Edit: also lack of confidence in infected leads me to have lack of confidence in mortality as well. Why trust numerator if you don’t trust denominator?)

    Wholly different level of preparedness and new interventions affecting mortality rate vs SARS, too, so disingenuous to hand wave the severity of the illness.

    Because society is treating it with greater alarm and information spreads more quickly the threat is de facto reduced too. So “nothing to see here” seems as harmful as “the sky is falling”

    I’m not an epidemiologist so going to butt out on further opining on that subject. Just wish others would do the same

    Even offshore manufacturing like Vietnam and whatnot is completely reliant on China's supply chain. Global manufacturing is going to suffer until probably May.

    This will probably accelerate a US recession cause spending will decline dramatically and cost of building will rise. It was happening due to trade war anyway, this just pours gas on it

    Your insinuation is crazier than trusting the PRC. Think on that for a little bit.

    I agree that suggesting it is definitive is questionable, and I apologize if that's how it came across. It's the data we have for now. Much like SARS, the realistic (or at least more realistic) numbers will eventually come out. What you suggested is plain lunacy though.

    The modeling experts have been on that number from the start, before there was much of a trend at all. It's pretty damn impressive work on their part. When you consider the context and the events surrounding the origins of this virus, 100k is a crazy low number, but humans and statistics don't get along very well.

    I don't need to be begged. I just don't want to offend anyone's delicate sensibilities by adding some anecdotal color to the situation.

    Also, Lipp and I have had a bit of mini bruhaha going the last month or so. My apologies for bringing that in here.

    Amen to that. I'm not trying to silence anyone else's perspective. I apologize if it comes across that way. I'm admittedly rather invested in the situation (in the people, not so much fiscally beyond a paycheck I'll still receive) and so that makes me respond strongly to things that seem absurd to me. No one needs me to tell them that people get a little crazy when things like this hit the mainstream.

    This particular situation is also directly related to my field, so yeah. Double whammy. I think I've been transparent regarding my conflicts of interest from the jump, but if not, there they are.

    I’ve got no hatchet to bury friend

    I just do know enough about stats to know the confidence intervals couldn’t even exist with the data that we have at this point

    So any definitive statements are lunacy, i.e., “+/- 10000%”

    That says nothing about confidence intervals, but it's a solid article otherwise. 2% is still less than 3%, so I think my initial statement still holds.

    I honestly don't even remember what crazy number you initially quoted or stated, but if you want to play a probability distribution game, let's do it. Real-time %, something slightly to moderately higher than PRC %, your %.

    I also made no conclusions about where this ends up. If it came off that way, I worded it poorly. We're discussing a viral outbreak in real-time with the information we have as things move along.

    One thing I will say is that the way China is handling this likely means it's much worse than reported. Or they're using this as a test-run for future political suppression (not wise if so). Or, they're overdoing it in reaction to the mess that was SARS (a viral outbreak that was still incredibly small, not that that's much solace for the families who lost loved ones and patients who suffered from its symptoms).

    It's also dangerous to speculate in the service of fear or malice without regard for science or the human cost of such speculation.

    Not the only factor, as the cocktail does vary in accuracy and effectiveness, but so much this.

    Should probably refrain from calling an educated guess that saves thousands of lives annually a fuck up, even if it does "miss"

    You have to have a very flawed background in all of this to start asking basic questions like this.

    What are you getting at? They play an estimated guessing game annually and save millions of lives. If you expect them to be 100% then you just lack a sophomoric level of virology/concepts of infectious disease/immunology/basic common sense.
