In some countries, crime gangs are enforcing the government lockdown or social distancing policies. Taking short term losses to protect the business model long term, I suppose. https://www.foxnews.com/world/el-sal...virus-lockdown

Default Case study on confirmed vs. true number of cases

Sorry, articles are in german.

https://web.de/magazine/news/coronav...iesen-34602350 cites a case study in Heinsberg, the district in Germany that was struck hardest by the corona virus at the beginning.

The confirmed cases so far are 1527 or 0.604% of the total population, see https://www.zeit.de/wissen/gesundhei...en-ausbreitung (the circle most to the left).

Now the study called representative says that 15% of that district have antibodies. So the true number of people that already had an infection there is around factor 25 higher than the official numbers.

Maybe that can be used as a rule of thumb for other regions.

Speed of coronavirus deaths shock doctors as New York toll hits new high - Reuters
Quote:
New York state, epicenter of America’s coronavirus crisis, set another single-day record of COVID-19 deaths on Wednesday, as veteran doctors and nurses voiced astonishment at the speed with which patients were deteriorating and dying.

The number of known coronavirus infections in New York state alone approached 150,000 on Wednesday, even as authorities warned that the official death tally may understate the true number because it omits those who have perished at home.

“Every number is a face, “ said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who ordered flags flown at half-staff across New York in memory of the victims.

“This virus attacked the vulnerable and attacked the weak, and it’s our job as a society to protect the vulnerable.”

Doctors and nurses say elderly patients and those with underlying health conditions are not the only ones who appear relatively well one moment and at death’s door the next. It happens to the young and healthy, too.

Patients “look fine, feel fine, then you turn around and they’re unresponsive,” said Diana Torres, a nurse at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, the center of the nation’s worst outbreak. “I’m paranoid, scared to walk out of their room.”

Nearly 430,000 cases of COVID-19, the highly infectious lung disease caused by the coronavirus, were confirmed in the United States as of Wednesday afternoon, including more than 14,700 deaths. For the second straight day the virus killed at least 1,900 in a 24-hour period.
As with other hot spots, human error was contributory - in NYC, mayor DeBlasio insisted on keeping the city "open for business" until the mounting case numbers forced his hand, at which point the underwater portion of the pandemic iceberg - the asymptomatic silent-spreaders - were in all likelihood already present all over the city in large numbers. In New Orleans, state & local authorities decided that letting the annual huge Mardi Gras party go ahead was a good idea.

Denmark has been locked down for 4 weeks now, not as bad as Italy and Spain but still schools, libraries, hairdressers, shopping malls etc. closed and max 10 people allowed to gather. It is working for now at least, the total number of hospitalized in the country never got above 530 with ~160 in intensive care and on ventilators, and now they are all going down. We have 237 deaths and 5,635 confirmed infected but only 62,210 tested, so the number is probably much much higher. They started testing blood from blood donors for Covid-19, I'm not sure if it is the antibody test, and extrapolated from those results that there are probably ~130,000 infected.

I think I jinxed Yemen. Case number one has been identified. Their starter for ten thousand, I guess.

NK, as expected, is perfect and wonderful as always and never gets any of this stuff.

For the future I think everyone will have to carry around one of those yellow immunisation books to show they are immune to this thing. For those of you that travel a bit you might already have one of the books listing yellow fever, and maybe other shots you have had. Papers please.

Chicago source reports 30-50% of Covid19 tests are showing antibodies. That's much higher than the percentage showing virus. https://chicagocitywire.com/stories/...virus-antibody

EU response discussed, and world and by-nation stats are included in this article https://www.politico.eu/article/coro...iled-the-test/
