  1. I would say the hobbit did increase big time year after year whilst other IP's didn't increase as much. It might have been a big hit in china if LOTR was released in this period.
  2. @Jason The first graph of new york isn't a clear cut as it shows. Unless we would asume that staying at home first increases the amount of cases and then decreases them. More logical would be that the spread was in full force before the actions were in place. So those actions had to slow down the spread first and only after x amount of times (probably 2 week ish) it could get to a downward trend. So the effect in actualy would be a lot bigger because it had to reverse the rend first to even have a shot at decreasing the casses. As for mask they were probably already aided by the negative R ratio because of previous actions. Not saying mask aren't the best way or stat staying at home is the best just trying to give more nuance to the graph than just and -?x ratio over time.
  3. I am also not Brazilian so I don't know the detailles
  4. Yeah it seems Brazil is still in a heavy storm. Thats said I am really starting to miss the BO, honestly I didn't think I would this way but apperently I do need some numbers to keep my head working :p
  5. People would still be egotistical tbh, so even if they do it that way quite a lot of people woudn't care and just take care of themsleves.
  6. The biggest reason they can't recommend masks to the public is in many countries there is a shortage of masks. If they recommend it, more people would want to wear masks, but countries like Belgium, Netherlands etc have just enough masks to suply riterement homes and hospitals. (and home nursing). So them telling masks are needed would make is so the public would buy the mask, they would stock them like they did with toilet paper and people in the hospitals woudn't have suffiecient protection. If humans woudn't be such selfisch *ss wholes they might give better information but as long as people are egotistical and selfserving it's hard to advice masks are needed.
  7. Yeah that could be, also they count any person dieing that had COVID like symptoms as a person who died because of COVID.
  8. We have a pretty strict lockdown and most people follow the rules. Also we were pretty early compared to other european countries to go in lockdown so I have no clue why it's this bad. The only thing i can think of is a late reaction in the homes for elderly people.
  9. In Belgium it isn't going to hot, we had 325 deaths in the past 24h (and 500 today including deaths that haven't been reported in time). I mean we only have 11.4m inhabitants so to convert that to Italy (times 5.3) this would have been a 1722 deaths day. This is ridiculously high.
  10. We had a pretty good day in Belgium on sunday (obv could be because of reports being slower) but if it holds monday and tuesday the fearfull exponential growth might have been avoided.
  11. It does 100% play a factor, take my homeland Belgium for example. They questioned the public on how they looked at the virus 8 days ago 90% of the people questioned said the actions taken by the government were to sever, that they were over reacting and that they were scaring the public way too much. Now yesterday they did the same thing and now 'only' 10% still thinks the government is reacting to harshly (8 days ago only the school closed and we were told to keep distance) now we are in complete lock down. If our government had called for a complete lock down 8/9 days ago the public would have roasted them and walked the street protesting the way they treated their citizens. Now most people agree with the actions. If the public is laughing at the things you do and go out of their way to do the opposite because the gov is 'overreacting' it's not only the politicians fault, the public also plays a big role in this. Also you have to balance spreading how severe the thread is and at the same time don’t let the public panic because even know we see people do stupid shit like hoarding everything, standing in big lines for stupid shit. Going to the neighbour countries to party because it’s not allowed in Belgium anymore. Again people are also responsible to follow the guidelines and apparently quite a lot of people suck at it.
  12. Don't only blame incompetent leaders, the people are just as if not more useless and incompetent in this whole situation. Because of cultural differences we are less strict, less disciplined, think we know better than experts etc. It has advantages, it also has huge disadvantages. One thing we are also great at blaming everybody but ourselves for the things that go wrong. Our politicians are but a symptom of our own society and the people that live in it.
