  1. He is saying that 856 people died in the past 24 hours. That's false. Going by many articles like this one, the total number of confirmed dead (in past 24 hours) is 462: http://www.aaj.tv/english/latest/spain-death-toll-tops-2000-after-462-deaths-in-24-hours-govt/. Also around 5k-6k cases confirmed.. Do we have someone from Spain here?
  2. 😐 f**k Sorry for making false hopes. I was looking as usual at Worldometer's first update
  3. Romania update: +143 cases (biggest single day increase..), bringing total to 576 cases. Another 11 people recovered and were sent home. Another 2 died, an elderly man and an elderly woman, both suffering from diabetes and possibly other pre-existing conditions.
  4. First update in Spain is MUCH better than yesterday: +1.141 cases and +41 deaths. Yesterday's first update included +340 deaths and totalled at 391 in the evening. I really hope there's no reason behind these numbers besides the quarantine taking effect. SO GOOD NEWS.
  5. First 2 deaths confirmed in Romania: Two elderly men, suffering from pre-existing conditions (67 y/o suffering from cancer, 74 y/o). Another 66 cases confirmed, bringing the total to 433. Another 12 recovered, bringing total of recovered people to 64.
  6. Coronavirus in Romania: Country closes borders for foreign citizens, malls close, people’s movement and religious service restricted And these measures come after one week of schools, unis and pubs being closed nation-wide. We "only" have 367 cases, 52 recovered, 0 dead. More than 55.000 are in isolation. I must say, I don't think I was as pleased with the measures my country has taken.. like, ever. Especially since 1.2 million Romanians live in Italy (the most out of EU-states - Romania) AND our medical system sucks.
  7. Yes and it probably is even smaller than that. Look at the death rates of countries that test A LOT: Germany (0.37%), Austria (0.27%) and even South Korea (1.1%)
  8. This is just horrible. Can you think of a reason why Lombardia might be this affected? What are the authorities telling you?
  9. https://mobile.twitter.com/NorbertElekes/status/1241387317547413504 Take care New Yorkers..
  10. Romania update: 367 cases (+59 from yesterday). 0 deaths. 52 people are now healthy. 14 in ICU
  11. Low. Back when Italy had "only" 2.500 deaths, there were only like 3 people under 40. 2 were 39 year-old men suffering from diabetes and cancer. Yet there are some 42-45 year-old people in Italy who died, without having prior comorbidities. Two odd cases are in Spain. A 21 year-old died, but apparently he had leukaemia. A completely healthy 37-year old man died there too. So, death rate for young people is very low, but there are quite a few ending up in hospitals and even in ICUs.
  12. On the other hand, both new cases and new deaths in France are smaller than yesterday (+1.617 / +1.861 and +78 / +108). They have also started testing hydroxychloroquine and it's very likely an effective drug for seriously ill covid-patients
  13. same thing happened to me after I've returned home from college, a week ago. Honestly think it's our minds playing games on us. I don't feel it anymore now
  14. Another first update, +1.903 cases and +171 deaths. Not getting any better. Can we just wake up from this bad dream? In other news, I've smoked my last cig yesterday and don't plan on buying another pack (after about 5 years of smoking around 1/2 pack/day). Figured it would be a good time now.
  15. First update today, Spain is up +2.378 cases and +129 deaths. This is bad-bad
  16. For what it's worth.. Spain's death toll is considerably smaller than yesterday (191) and Germany's death toll is incredibly small (0.22%)
  17. Depressing numbers coming in from France too. +1.404 cases, +89 deaths. Death count saw a big increase..
  18. There's a huge discrepancy between mortality rates per countries, for example (Per Worldometers): Germany - 0.27% South Korea - 0.99% But then, on the other hand we have: Italy - 7.94% Iran - 6.53% So, in my opinion, the more accurate numbers are the ones reported from SK and Germany, because they test way more, even young and asymptomatic people. Iran and Italy's situation is much worse now, so they only report the confirmed symptomatic cases (or perhaps even just the hospitalized people). Here in Romania we now have 246 cases. No deaths. Only 5 people in serios/cri
  19. Per Worldometers, Spain has added 1.236 cases and 149 deaths in half a day. It's at Italy's level now
  20. With "just" 116 confirmed cases and no deaths yet, Romania takes extreme measures. Schools and unis have been closed for half a week now, and our President has just declared that Romania will be in a "state of emergency" starting Monday the 16th. Imo, Romania acts very carefully because our medical system just isn't prepared for this, at all. Also, I believe we test too little
  21. Despite having just 17 confirmed cases, Romania will close all public schools between the 11th and 22nd March (might get prolonged). Unis/colleges not included
  22. Saying that people in Europe are panicked would be an understatement. Italy has around 700 cases and many deaths, France and Germany gained a lot of cases today, likely becoming the next Italy. German prime-minister declared corona to be an epidemic, many cases are untraceable. New cases are coming every hour from Greece, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Poland (was just confirmed), Netherlands... numbers have grown extremely fast today. Here in Romania we've got our first case last night. People are out of control and started emptying supermarket-shelves in the big cities, m
