I hate this language. It implies we have some kind of definitive medicine to treat this virus, and we do not. What they mean is that their infection has resolved and are feeling well–likely due to their own immune system and supportive care. https://t.co/LSyR4dMKpt

DANGER DANGER DANGER!
Pres Trump in NH just said he is hoping that the coronavirus will be under control by April because it will be warmer.
“Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer it miraculously goes away. I hope that’s true…I think it’s going to work out good.”

Yesterday: 97 died of Coronavirus in China alone.
Today: President Trump announced plans to cut funding for global health programs by 34%.
It's like a unilateral, willing surrender to pandemic disease. Hard to believe.

All things considered I'll take Trump being disengaged and ignorant on coronavirus over him actively involved and demanding everyone violate public health best practices. I'm sorry, those are the only available options.

Key message: case fatality depends on which cases you look at. High in the relatively severe subset reported in Hubei. Lower in (mostly milder)traveller cases, 1% (.25-4) in all infections https://t.co/4ltCQH5xRW
