Bug boffins: Trump tests positive for being right
Paul Kelly, 17 days ago: Working-class virus crisis threatens Donald Trump.
This is a new test for Trump. So far, he has looked out of his depth, peddling as late as Monday foolish tweets including a dismissal of coronavirus in comparison with the common flu.
Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. et alia, editorial of the New England Journal of Medicine, today:
If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.
