Well there goes the Easter deadline. Probably shouldn’t use the term deadline.

If you guys honestly think China’s figures are accurate then you are extremely naive. The population of Wuhan alone is over 1 billion. There’s no way less than 1% of the population has been infected sorry. The numbers clearly aren’t accurate.

And you think China has a problem with the accuracy of their figures

China has a 1.4 billion population, are you saying the other 400 million live in the rest of the country?

Wuhan has 11 million, and China almost 1.5 million.

India with 1.3 million into lockdown this week.

If covid hits India and Africa, this will rocket as western healthcare cannot cope.

UK figure going up rapidly now, on similar trajectory to Italy, as feared....up 187 today.

Chief medical officer in self-isolation so no daily 5pm update with boris out too?

Liar. You just don't have a clue what you're talking about.

If Google told you Wuhan has 1 billion people out of China's entire population of 1.4 billion and you believed it then you're naught but a parrot.

What a surprise!

Wuhan has 11 million and is part of China that only has 1.5 million.

So Wuhan has 9.5 million more than the country it is a small part of

This is a pretty interesting vid describing some of the measures China put in place.

"This is How China Beat the Coronavirus - should we copy?"

Again, China's figures may or may not be true, but the way they went about tackling this outbreak was way more aggressive and decisive, so it makes rather a bit of sense that they might have contained the disease sooner and with fewer cases.

I think it's the sensible idea. I guess many people would hate it because of Big Brother, but I'm of the opinion I have nothing to hide and it seems necessary.

If China passes this while the rest of us dawdle, THIS will make China immensely powerful.

They've already begun helping other countries while the US has been trying to buy exclusive access to a potential future vaccine from a German company.

I knew learning Mandarin would prove more useful than just speaking to the possible FIL.

I for one welcome our new overlords.

Wasn't the exclusive rights thing denied by the German company?

As for welcoming the Chinese... be careful what you wish for.

I was so determined to prove that google merked me that I went back and looked at my search history. Yes yes not only did I google the wrong city (Hubei), but I read to population all wrong. So yea I will take the L. But I still don’t really care if the population of Wuhan is 11m or 11b there isn’t a chance in hell China’s figures are accurate. People are saying that up to 66% of the nation will have covid19 and only for 0.5% or something like that of China get infected? Nah sorry no chance

They sacked the American CEO (who had recently been invited to the Whitehouse) and then said no comment.

Nope. Missed it.

How do you think the reduction of movement will affect your beloved coral reefs? I've seen a few bids on YouTube about how nature is breathing a sigh of relief and healing ATM.

There is a massive survey being conducted as we speak. There is already widespread bleaching in the far north, but thankfully not as bad as 16 or 17.

The lower 2/3 are now being assessed and there is A LOT of concern over an area the size of England that numerous anecdotal reports from scientists and tour operators have said is the worst they've ever seen.

This reduction in travel is just going to be a blip. But apparently air quality in many factory cities has massively improved. It won't last.

If the media jump onto the improvements, it might instigated a change in behaviour. 🤷‍♂️
