  • VIDEO: Discussion of RO, Containment, timing of peak virus

    I didn't see that this video has been posted yet (if it has, my apologies ... please feel free to delete). VERY good info:

    Discussion of RO, Containment, timing of peak virus... all English 2QYnaxwPbPea-eppO6KpX5RHGkSR2b0-VBqyfk91LlIzv9AgKTQgWVo

    The upper panel shows that if there had NOT been such a population quarantine and the lower panels shows that there is such a population quarantine . As you can see, they are ALMOST IDENTICAL! Which suggests that this population quarantine may NOT be able to substantially change the course of this epidemic in the other major city clusters. It is not to say it is ineffective, but it may not be able to change in a substantial way the epidemic curves would develop or is expected to develop in these other major Chinese city clusters, as listed.

    As you can see, this is a rather complicated slide … (he starts to talk about the effect of travel from Wuhan & other significant communities) …

    … The timing of the peak is somewhere around April-May …
