The US government's approach to information seems to be that they want to inform everybody that they are performing really well. Their performance is dire, if you pay any attention to the rapidly rising numbers of sick and dead Americans, so they don't.On Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 12:41:43 AM UTC-4, Flyguy wrote:

Per capita comparisons are interesting.
The Wuhan event resulted in virus detections per capita
in the 50ppm range for the country as a whole, at the
end of present containment excercises. The resources of
the rest of the country were applied in this exercise.
In Italy, Spain and Iceland, it's over 1000ppm, at present,
China would have had to have had 20 Wuhans, to match this.
So, the US and other countries, currently at a 3day doubling
rate of detection, should be ready for the 20x Wuhan effect
on it's resources, as no containment is possible at this
Every case doesn't need to be detected - that's just an
indicator of the development.
As of Apr08:
US detections are at 1204ppm (no longer Wuhan comparable >20x)
Fatalities at 39ppm from a 572ppm detection recorded
7 days previously ( 6.8% FR)
US detections running at 92ppm/day (possibly steadying)
US tests performed total 5780ppm (0.6%), at 470ppm/day
Canada detections at 474ppm (9x Wuhan) - so running ~8 days
behind the US.
Fatalities at 10ppm from a 226ppm detection recorded
7 days previously. ( 4.5% FR)
Canadian detections running at 33ppm/day (possibly steadying).
Canadian tests performed total 8960ppm (0.9%), at 600ppm/day.
Iceland detections at 4647ppm . (no longer Wuhan comparable)
Fatalities at 18ppm from a 3326ppm detection recorded
7 days previously. ( 0.50% FR )
Detection rate is 70ppm/day and falling.
Iceland tests performed total 81230ppm (8.1%), at 3685ppm/day.
Italian detections at 2242ppm. (no longer Wuhan comparable)
Fatalities at 283ppm from a 1750ppm detection recorded
7 days previously. ( 16% FR )
Detection rate is 50ppm and falling.
Italian tests performed total 11690ppm (1.2%), at 510ppm/day.
US and Canada do not seem to test or to report on one day
of the week ~ weekend.
The single MD of a long-term care seniors home in Bobcaygeon,
Ontario, relates that his only tools against Covid19 infection
at the facility were inhalers and morphine. Isolation impractical.
Canada reports no backlog in testing.
You're joking, right? Canada is testing less than 10 per thousand, that's one in a hundred. If there is no backlog it is because they are turning people away that want the test.
Furthermore, any data from China is totally unreliable - they reported ZERO CV19 deaths today. Yeah, right.
You keep talking about China reporting zero deaths as if that is impossible. The deaths reported have been single digit for weeks now. Why is zero so inconsistent when they have fewer infections in the whole country than we have in Idaho?
They have worked hard to reduce their infection counts. We should hope to achieve that ourselves and should be over there learning all the details of how they did it. South Korea as well. Science is about exchanging information. Our government seems to have trouble with that idea.
