Coronavirus 2019-2020 thread (no unsubstantiated rumours!)

The countries that have refused all WHO recommendations to prepare for the pandemic in time and have been hit extremely hard because of this are now leaving.

These are democratic countries. If the people choose incompetent governments, they must face the consequences.

Will UK leave WHO, too?

The butcher's bill for George Floyd crowd gatherings coming forefront.

In last couple of weeks, the daily increase in C19 was in the range of 80 to 100 k.
Last night, the increase was just short of 160k

JHU says 126k, worldometer says 128k.
Two days earlier previous peak was 131k at worldometer, yesterday previous peak was 132k at JHU.

But that's right: the pandemic is now reaching the emerging markets and the third world and is now fully developing. I call it the third phase. It will be the most terrible phase. The first phase included China and neighboring countries, the second phase mainly Europe and North America.

US Senator accuses China of blocking efforts to develop a vaccine.
This is a very serious accusation, and such evidence needs to be made public.

Of course, I doubt this will happen because the evidence probably doesn't exist, like many accusations that have recently been made.

Plus the US Senator's later comments on the US sharing a vaccine make him sound like a deluded shmuck, given that:

1. Xi Jinping has publicly said he will share a vaccine with the world
2. Whilst Donald Trump has been trying to buy a German vaccine for the exclusive use of the USA.

The row between the US and China over the coronavirus outbreak has flared again with a US senator accusing Beijing of trying to block the development of a vaccine in the West.

Rick Scott said evidence had come via "our intelligence community" but provided no details to back it up.
...
He said: "We have got to get this vaccine done. Unfortunately we have evidence that communist China is trying to sabotage us or slow it down."
...
Mr Scott, who has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, was questioned again, saying the "evidence" had come through the intelligence community and armed services, adding: "There are things I can't discuss... I get provided information."

He said if "England or the US does it first, we're going to share. Communist China, they are not going to share."

Here was what I got of yesterday

Taiwan and Hong Kong seen as zero as I felt no point to update those 2 in last 3 weeks as they hardly got new cases for quite a while.
USA and Pakistan and India and other countries to the right of spreadsheet and truncated off. Not all countries are tracked by me. I track only those countries I got interest in such as those like Oman and UAE and KSA that I used to live in, or those I felt will be significant such as South America and India and Packistan or puerile interest in such as Denmark for their drawing of cartoon that mocked China flag with covid19 instead of stars.

Singapore claims we have a lot of covid cases because we test a lot. This chart shows what really our testing capacity is in terms of tests per confirmed case. We lag far behind NZ. Australia. TW. South Korea. Germany and Italy. and many other countries. And are not testing that widely.

Now the maliciousness of America's attack against China is really beyond the pale. Once again they are accusing China doing something based on some undisclosed (meaning: made-up) "intelligence report". Let me guess: just because there are ethnical Chinese scientists working for American pharmaceutical companies doe not mean any of them want to do sabotage for the Chinese government!
