Faeroe Islands is the first place with over 100 cases to completely eradicate Covid-19.

Iceland had over 1800 cases, and is still a few weeks away from being Covid-19 free.

    Unbelievably? There are ‘only’ 9 reported deaths in Beijing and 7 in Shanghai?

    Beijing, China
    Confirmed: 593
    Deaths: 9
    Shanghai, China
    Confirmed: 657
    Deaths: 7

    “A patient treated in a hospital near Paris on 27 December for suspected pneumonia actually had the coronavirus, his doctor has said.
    This means the virus may have arrived in Europe almost a month earlier than previously thought.
    . . . Two weeks ago, a post-mortem examination carried out in California revealed that the first coronavirus-related death in the US was almost a month earlier than previously thought. . . .
    Dr Cohen, head of emergency medicine at Avicenne and Jean-Verdier hospitals near Paris, said the patient was a 43-year-old man from Bobigny, north-east of Paris.
    He told the BBC’s Newsday programme that the patient must have been infected between 14 and 22 December, as coronavirus symptoms take between five and 14 days to appear.”

    Postkey, That’s because China put a hard lockdown in place before it had time to spread much outside of Hubei. The death rate was much lower outside Hubei because testing was much more complete.

    @Postkey, thanks for the second link, note this: “This was [the first French case of C19, on 27 Dec 2019] four days before the WHO’s China country office was informed of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause being detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan.”

    So we can all agree that China covered up C19. Unless they want to claim that an unknown cause of pneumonia is something the WHO doesn’t need to know about. What did China know and when did they know it? Sanctions until such questions are answered, ‘free trade’, which takes up about 15% or less of US GDP, be damned.

    Ray, China was caught off guard by Covid-19 in December and hence had to be covering it up? Why?

    We know the local Wuhan government did cover it up in January, and that the epidemic started in November. The French data doesn’t change any of that.

    So the epidemic started in November, and didn’t spread to Beijing or Shanghai?
