Tracking COVID-19

I’ve made reference a couple of times to the following website:

Worldometer – Coronavirus

Below is a screen shot of how it looks right now. Obviously the site is dependent on national reporting, which is always suspicious in the case of China as they desperately pretend that they don’t make mistakes and perhaps refuse to report new cases; the site showed zero on that front for several days.

At the other end of the scale is Italy, where it seems the death till may have been badly exaggerated by medical reporting, as the Italian National Institute of Health is questioning:

“On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity – many had two or three.”

Meantime, if the fucking Chinese Communist Party keeps going with their spin job, media intimidation (when the media is not carrying water for them) and conspiracy theories about the origins of the virus then the promotion of new names for the virus is going to increase. One suggestion I have is:
  The Chinese Communist Party Virus.
Up yours Xi Peng, and here’s a Winnie The Pooh toy to cuddle.
