Coronavirus has over the past few days been stabilizing. At least that is what the Chinese government has been reporting with respect to the number of cases and the number of deaths. If you look at the numbers below, it is obvious to the whole world that the major cases and deaths have been from China mainland, especially from the Hubei province. Something changed with these numbers over the last week.
These numbers have stabilized. However, there are rumors that the Chinese government has changed the way they have reported numbers over the last few days where they do not any more count the patients that are asymptomatic in the number of cases. This does not mean these patients are not virus free, it just means that these patients are not showing any symptoms. What could go wrong with that right? China is reporting this number as ‘Medical attention receiving patients’ until now, and this number has dramatically decreased with this ‘change’ (I don’t know if I would call it that) in reporting.
Below is a chart of what that has done over the last 3-5 days where the numbers have dramatically fallen. Below this image is a list of countries and the number of cases Coronavirus – by the way – newly named as COVID-19 has impacted.
