Meh, six dead in China? Must not be very virulent, because I figure in China a really nasty strain of this will kill 60,000 before being detected, 600,000 before ineffective quarantine procedures are in place and 6,000,000 before the West even noticies.

Bontesla: This particular strain is fairly new to humans and it's been quite effective thus far

There are 1,354,040,000 people in China. Millions have probably already been exposed by now, and only 6 have died as a result.

The way these things are presented it's as if everyone who gets exposed dies as a result, but that's blatant fearmongering detached from scientific reason.

Upon reading this I immediately ran out to the barn, grabbed a chicken and vaccinated him. Don't know how he's going to react to the herd's  Clostridium Perfringens Types C & D Antitoxin we use on the Angus, but I dutifully did as told. Immediately got something vaccinated.

skozlaw: / math is hard for some people

I don't know what they taught you in school, but when I learned maths I learned that any attempt to double zero gets zero. So the "doubling process" in your chart would end right at the zero line and never get any further. Pay more attention in class, smart guy.

js34603: Well if the highly trained medical professionals on Fark don't think this is a big deal I'm not worried about it then.

Hopefully they are not as bad as the fark knowitalls were on Fukushima.

Maybe they died just from breathing the air over there.
