  1. Uh, well, yeah this makes sense. They were using CT scans and X-rays before, and counting anyone with infections (though negative testing) as CV19 positive.

    Now they changed it to just testing with nucleic acid, and hence, a much lower number. Also, it takes days to return test results.

    So in reality, if you took all the ‘confirmed’ cases and ran it through the new criteria used for identifying, you would probably have 25,000 – 35,000 less cases total. Remember, it’s ALSO influenza season.

    Meaning, the mortality rate is 5-30%

    See, this why we don’t tust anything anymore.

  2. Strange. People all over [this thread ](https://reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/f4hi9e/chinese_doctors_say_wuhan_coronavirus_reinfection/)were assuring everyone that Taiwan News is a fake news source that posts misinformation because they posted an article about this [same exact thing. ](https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3874490)

    It’s weird there almost seems like a pattern here. Taiwan News criticizes China? Call them fake news.

    But now I can clearly see that Taiwan News was correct. Reuter’s just confirmed it. Hm

  3. Of course a drop everyone’s locked up, welded in or cut off! [the first to speak set a rare precedent now they’re gone](https://youtu.be/VwyRGjDHyXs)
