COVID-19 update: 540K cases globally, cases in US surpass China

Globally the cases from the COVID-19 virus have risen to 540,832 with 24,293 deaths. The US (85,612) has the most confirmed cases in the world, surpassing China (81,340). Italy is third with 80,589 cases. The UN estimated Thursday that global job losses could far exceed the 25M estimated just days ago. India and Malaysia were the latest countries to release stimulus packages.

I suspect there are many dead Chinese lying in apartments who died of starvation under the communist order to remain inside or be shot. Those deaths won't count as "COVID" but rather "natural causes".

The Chinese government lies a lot about everything don't believe a word they say.

I'm not a betting man, but, gun to my head, I'd say the actual number of deaths in china is at least twenty times higher overall, and their sudden drop to zero new infections entirely fake. Again, gun to my head, my guess for daily deaths would be in the multiple thousand in china. 60% virus, 35% starvation, 5% murder of potential whistleblowers.

Considering that possibly a 100,000 are already dead because of the disease in China, yes, that may be the fact currently in the eyes of the Chinese government.

Most likely the US is just the most open and transparent about it. China, for example, certainly has had far more infected and deaths from the Wuhan Flu than the US, they just stopped reporting on it.

According to who? Are people that stupid they believe the numbers coming out of China especially when they've expelled all foreign press.

Is this the same China that sent thousands of faulty tests to the Czechs. I wonder if those were the same tests China used. But I'm sure their numbers are correct.

Check out the CDC website. They do not support the numbers shown above.

10,000 deaths in a week. The Chinese death toll has to be much higher than reported.

Why are we reporting as if Chinas numbers are accurate? Viruses do not just suddenly stop one day, it's pretty clear they are cocovering things up.

Seeing as how Communist China lied about the virus at every step of the way, I'm not going to accept their evidence as relevant statistical information. Italy is concerning, but their family traditions of having multiple generations under the same roof, admirable as that may be, put their elders at higher risk. They are also older on average than Americans, and the Italian government was comparitively slow to respond for whatever reason. The US is going to have a large number of cases because it is a large country, and legally and culturally speaking is not collectivist, it is individualist. We don't respond well to threats and warnings, or admonitions of "the greater good". Typically, we move to protect ourselves, our families, and our friends, but not the entire nation. So yes, we are going to have a somewhat higher rate of transmission and more deaths than smaller more collectivist societies and nations.

I wouldn't be suprised is Spontanious combustion and Bullet wounds were considered WuFlu symptoms in China. I mean Cancer became a symptom in Italy. this is a very strange disease indeed.

Did you know they don't count cases without symptoms, imported cases, or people who are reinfected? Something to think about. Also if you consider this shit started in November last year their body count should be high enough. Keep in mind it is likely they have gone through the full process and are near it's end while we started a month or two back. Given your location. Considering they went full authoritarian and welded people inside their homes they may not have covid 19 being the issue. More likely to be starving and sucide.

I read an article that 21 million cell phones are unaccounted for in China. It was kind of hinting at the fact that that maybe the number of people dead. I didn't get a chance to follow up on that angle. Our numbers are going to be so much higher than China's, it won't even be believable.
