    Hey Pirate, don't be surprised if your forecast is wrong. All Nicas, within a month after birth, are required to get BCG shots. The vaccine boosts the immune system for life. It is aimed to...

    Who has done the most testing? Here's a snapshot. Norway has tested 2.1% of its population. Clearly when the testing was done is a factor not included. Plus whether there was follow-up...

    Re: Thoughts on the current Pandemic

    The log of total deaths vs time shows the flattering most clearly. Since testing was spotty, the number of cases is a poor indicator. Hopefully we'll have learned a thing or two before that week is...

    The total of confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide has reached 1.1 million. We all realize that that number is a gross underestimate of those infected with CoV-19. However, the 58,400 who have died...

    Read Chung Kuo. I got a used copy of The Middle Kingdom back in 1996 or so, when I was still into sci fi. The series is a future history of Earth dominated by China.

    The USA is politically divided, at every level of governance. It's called 'freedom'. Part of the problem with the coronavirus is that it built slowly and only later took off like a rocket. Sure...

    The swab test is the PCR test; it takes 2-3 days to get results. It strips the corona shell, then replicates sufficient viral RNA by polymerase chain reaction to do an assay. Takes time.
