    Not understanding that. How do you gauge that? You have many hospitalized due to prior medical conditions aggravated with Covid. You have people going to hospitals that shouldn't. It is like the death rate, how true are the figures we get?

    All that said, weren't hospitalizations going down prior to the spike?

    Largely uncontrolled spreads as in protests and riots? That seemed like common sense but when I pushed that rationale, tacit mess was having none of it.

    The experts are saying 80% will be infected. I think that will probably be true. You don't think the lethality of the virus will decrease over time? I mean I know it is high at 1.5% dealing with all those verified deaths from Covid but still? (Last sentence is sarcasm)

    Dunno....do you believe Wiki?

    The article states they only restricted travel for people coming from the Hubei province of China, where COVID came from. And they specifically mention "Different measures have been taken to screen the mass population for the virus, and isolate any infected people as well as trace and quarantine those who contacted them, without further lockdown." Sounds like they didn't lock anything down unless there was a serious, clear reason to do it. While we here in the US have locked everything and everyone down for months, and ruined our economy in the process. This does not support your point of view.

    Second, the article definitely supports the idea they have had a mild version of the virus. Their case mortality rate suggests that.

    May I suggest you rely on what the doctors and hospitals are telling us?
    Or do you prefer to go with some nonsense that says they are too incompetent or corrupt to be trusted?

    You like to keep digging don't you?

    Firstly the restrictions were and are much more extensive than just travellers from Hubei.

    There is zero evidence that they had a weak version of the virus. Where did this weak version come from and why did it decide to only holiday in South Korea? It's ridiculous and preposterous.

    I have presented the data to you that is evidence of a mild strain of COVID. If you want to counter that argument, provide data that supports your assertions.

    You've provided nothing so far, except opinion, hyperbole, and fear mongering. Nothing factual, no raw data, nothing to support anything you're saying. You've demanded supporting data, and you've gotten it. Then you completely dismiss the supporting data because it doesn't support anything you're saying.

    Time to grow up kid. We're waiting for you to actually contribute something other than disbelief.

    This is getting repetitive. Listen to the public health experts, don't just make up stuff directed at people you hate.
    The spread has occurred because restrictions were prematurely eased and people are circulating. Most of the spread occurs in confined public and private spaces such as bars, restaurants and people's homes when they have family and friends visiting.

    You're presented with a reasoned argument and that's your response. Pathetic.

    Many Doctors told us that HCQ/Zinc/Azythromycin worked, because they had used it and cured many, but people, even many here kinda **** all over that. The guy who is the head of the Methodist Hospital in Houston said there was no need to be alarmed because the hospitals were more full from elective surgeries than Covid patients, and you yourself **** all over that.

    So.....

    There is no evidence that there is a weak strain in South Korea. You say you have presented supporting data but you have not done so.
    If it's more than just your silly guesswork then you need to present the evidence.

    This has no relevance to determining the number of covid cases and deaths.

    The data is in the link I provided. I even told you precisely which data in particular.

    If you're too stupid to read it, I can't help you. No one here is going to spoon feed you everything, you gotta do some work yourself.

    So we only trust the experts that say things that back up your view of reality...

    Got it.

    If you have 'alternative experts' then tell us about them.

    Strange how no one believed china when they went from thousands of deaths per day down to nearly zero when we're expected to believe it happened in new york?

    What is new York doing now that they werent doing in march?
