Coronavirus overtakes SARS death toll 4.5
The virus has officially killed more people than the 2003 SARS outbreak.

Most of those deaths occured in China.
Perhaps now Chinese authorities will crack down on the consumption of exotic animals in markets across China.

If only 800 deaths then why are crematorium running 24/7? Family members are banned from having funerals for loved ones, instead bodies are cremated within hours of death.. This is HUGE

Nothing to see here. Just building hospitals over night for no reason.

Sky News has the nerve to say China is being more transparent, then in the same breath, the police make them delete their footage.

Strange that the 2% mortality rate is being repeated. This virus, unlike others takes up to around 3/4 weeks to kill someone in some cases. Deriving a percentage death rate from current deaths to confirmed cases is never going to be accurate. A better way to look at it is the complication rate, 20%+ people with the virus end up in ICU

The death rate of the coronavirus in China has remained at 2.1% for days! No one on this earth other than WHO would believe these figures. The real numbers of the confirmed cases and deaths are much more than what China are revealing. Everyone outside of China knows it!

Bill gates predicted this years ago. That a disease would come out of China due to there poor hygiene and eating habits. China didn’t listen 😐

The population isnt increasing because of birth rates, its increasing because people are not dying like they used too. This is the natural cleansing of earth and key to sustainability.
