'Over 1000 total deaths; a new daily record as well'.
That was the 97 I read about a day ago.
Well, no, it wasn't. It was 108- the new daily record. (All in China, I think.)
Given what I see about what we do know and don't know, about cases and fatalities and new cases, I think the unknowns are winning. "Tip of the iceberg" is being used more often now.
'What is the infection rate?' 'Don't know; insufficient data.'
'What is the mortality rate?' 'Don't know; insufficient data.'
I strongly recommend The Great Influenza, John M. Barry, Viking, 2004. After Ebola and SARS but of course before this one. P. 167 ff. tells of the beginning, the spread (rapid but mild, at first), and the mortality jump.
It's why I mentioned the iceberg. A different pattern, but also disturbing.
Side note. My smartphone vocabulary capitalizes Ebola and makes SARS all-caps, unbidden.
