??? Sounds like some kind of over-reaction here. http://www.webmd says:

“A coronavirus is a kind of common virus that causes an infection in your nose, sinuses, or upper throat. Most coronaviruses are not dangerous.”

Based on that description, I just got over this virus and happen to still be here….


From the best information I could find, it looks as though 4 of the original cluster of 15 in Wuhan have died. That’s a 27+ % kill rate. I was also able to find that of the first 17 that died, the average numbers of days between when they caught the virus and the day they died was about 17%. Using this 17% number, if you go back 17 days from Jan 22 you start at Jan 5 a time when 59 cases were confirmed. Those 17 that had died by Jan 22 divided by 59 infected 17 days earlier creates a kill rate of about 29%. I don’t know how many internet stories I’ve read that say the kill rate is 1% to 2%. How they come up with that number stumps the heck out of me. Another math reality is that if the the number of dead increases by 6 fold every ten days, by April 30, 2020, over two billion will be dead.
Jan 11….one dead
Jan 21….6 dead
Jan 30… _______ way over 36


Mistake on line 5 should read 17 days not 17% in both places.


The fact is, NOBODY knows yet how bad this will be. Judging by today’s market action, investors are starting to take this more seriously. Follow the money!
