Coronavirua – 1989 new cases, 63 new deaths

1 March 2020 – Total reported coronavirus cases: 87,733 – I say reported, because I don’t believe the reports coming out of China’s communist government. (See China Hundreds of thousands infected but not reported.)

7,570 reported in serious or critical condition (This number has declined for the past two days).

Total reported deaths: 2,933

Total reported recovered: 42,689

586 new cases in South Korea (This number has declined substantially from yesterday.)
385 new cases in Iran (This number has increased substantially from yesterday.)
A total of 1,128 cases in Italy, 239 new.
A total of 71 cases in the U.S. and one death.

  1. Moderna Therapeutics, a biotech company based in Cambridge, Mass., has shipped the first batches of its COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine was created just 42 days after the genetic sequence of the COVID_19 virus, called SARS-CoV-2, was released by Chinese researchers in mid-January. The first vials were sent to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD, which will ready the vaccine for human testing as early as April.

  2. Regardless of the public comments made by Government and WHO officials around the world, it seems there’s always been a feeling that the stats from China haven’t been all that accurate. Now that the virus has made a foothold in other countries we’re seeing stats that are clearly different from what came from China. Either this thing mutated, or we’re getting a more accurate picture of what it really is capable of doing. For instance, I believe the highest mortality rate on closed cases reported out of China was 12%, but in other countries, Italy mainly, the mortality rate on closed cases is currently 37%. For reference I think the mortality rate on SARS was 12%.

  3. My chinese wife is saying her friends report that China isn’t reporting prison infections or deaths, or nursing home infections or deaths, and apparently they’re dropping like flies.

  4. Perry-

    Do you know if they have done animal testing yet and if so what the results were?

    That’s where the SARS-1 vaccine hit a wall. The animals died when exposed to the virus because the antibodies stimulated by the vaccine actually helped the virus get into cells instead of attacking it.
