An infant I believe just died yesterday in the US from the virus.

Maybe there was an underlying condition?

Correct and is being investigated.

https://www.livescience.com/us-infant-dies-coronavirus.html 

Near the bottom, the State of lIIinois, yesterday, has ~3500 cases and 47 deaths in 43 counties. Which is ~1.3% death rate. One of the numbers l posted on one of our C-19 threads. [The percent of death to confirmed is running in the 1.3% to 1.5% bracket.]

NHS England said that Amged el-Hawrani was the first confirmed hospital frontline worker to die after testing positive for coronavirus. A 63-year-old surgeon, Adil el Tayar, also died last week after volunteering in A&E departments in the Midlands to help the NHS cope with the pandemic.

Muslims seem to be rather over-represented in the healthcare worker deaths. No one seems to have mentioned that yet.

Possible Covid-19 risk factors, I've highlighted obesity because I had not come across that one before.

Iranian advances in finding a cure

Quote

Iranian scientists have launched at least a dozen other clinical trials, exploring the COVID-19 fighting promise of compounds such as tocilizumab, normally used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and metformin, a diabetes medication. One team is infusing COVID-19 patients with antibody-rich blood of people who recovered fully from the illness. And a group led by Hossein Baharvand, director of the Royan Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Technology, is injecting mesenchymal stem cells into COVID-19 patients to test whether these cells’ ability to modulate the immune response and secrete antimicrobial peptides will help subdue the infection.

Iran is also trying a novel approach for killing cancer cells and microbes: cold atmospheric plasma (CAP). The ionized gas generates reactive oxygen and nitrogen molecules that disrupt cell membranes, and perhaps viral proteins. The technique has shown promise for decontaminating surfaces, says Michael Keidar, a plasma physicist and biomedical engineer at George Washington University who is developing a “plasma brush” to sterilize masks and other equipment used while treating COVID-19 patients. CAP has been attempted in only a handful of cancer patients, says Keidar. Applying it to COVID-19 patients, he says, is “very tricky and risky.” But Iranian scientists claim encouraging results. A team led by Jalaledin Ghanavi of the National Research Institute of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease has just completed a safety trial in 14 COVID-19 patients, half of whom received ionized helium administered via an anesthetic mask. The treated patients improved, says Ghanavi, who’s now enrolling subjects in a larger clinical trial.

Even if it is not true, there is some basis for concern. It has been reported that pets can have the coronavirus attach to their hair. Whether or not it is easy to transfer to someone else is not really known yet.

Some MAGA's on Twitter are getting apoplectic with news that Trump sent plane loads of supplies to China. Drowned out are comments that the supplies never arrived. Hard to figure out what actually happened.

to be honest I have been thinking that China has been winning the PR war since I see a lot of pics of Chinese planes arriving in lots of different countries, but don't see anything like that for U.S. aid.

This is a problem with journalism, a degree in journalism is really a degree in keyboarding (formerly, typewriting).

Almost no journalist has a science or technical education and so they write useless or misleading-to-dangerous garbage to meet a deadline.

The West Midlands has emerged as a hotspot for transmissions and deaths from the virus. Earlier this week, the government said it was investigating anecdotal evidence suggesting people’s religious convictions and fears of social isolation could be leading to a sharp rise in the number of coronavirus transmissions in the area.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2020/mar/30/coronavirus-live-news-us-deaths-could-reach-200000-uk-warned-six-month-lockdown-covid-19-latest-updates#block-5e81974f8f0878a2a48acc1d

Hmm.

West Midlands + religious convictions = They're talking about Muslims

Children don’t die for this simple reason: 

Unlike adults who have anti bodies to other coronaviruses children don’t have them, now it might sound like children are disatvantaged here until you realise that some of these anti bodies to other coronaviruses are extreemly harmful to tbe body when treating the new coronavirus which would explain a huge amount as to why older people suffer more then younger.

Obisety : probably one of the main reason of high deaths in us

Smoking: Probably the reason of high deaths in Iran, italy, china

Bad coal air quality: Big reason why people died in initial days in china

Drinking alchool: Probably huge reason of deaths in italy

Sleep deprivation:  THE BIGGEST RISK FACTOR

Practicing less hygene: Other deseases might infect with coronavirus

Men do these way more then women which explains why they have more male deaths

I heard a perfectly health girl 20 years old that did exercise many times a day got the corona and had severe pneumonia and a guy in his 30s who had 0 symptoms from the virus, which to that ill say:

OR

Allah(STW) will: They die because it was their time, these are just statsitics and people should look over their healths but it also has to coincide with Allah(stw) will.

More on this:

It is interesting.

There is this big question looming if we will actually invest in pandemic prevention in the post coronavirus world. Or if we will just slip pack into a world of mass military investment and negligence of just about everything else.

death rate is not 2.5%. The current death rate around the globe is 18%. You need to check the closed cases I.e the cases which had an outcome for death rate, excluding active cases.

So there was a Muslim event in Nizamuddin Delhi, India with many thousands participating and a lot of people contracted the virus and many have died to. It was a walking atom bomb. Muslims seems to be taking issues lightly and getting most affected across Asia.

Yes, it seems to be a psychological thing. Reports of Orthodox Jews behaving in the same way and Orthodox Christians too (the latter sharing sacrament spoons).

A while back I posted that a loss of smell and taste is a symptom of Covid19 and it's been medically supported. So now people are posting themselves on Twitter eating all sorts of strong tasting stuff and claiming not to taste it:

How come Boris Johnson and Prince Charles recovered so quickly?

Because they are in direct contact with Satan and evil spirits which they worship. They probably sacrificed children to pay for it.

Has someone shared this yet?

Projected data for the United States. 

The data for my state will have to change. The governor issued a stay-at-home order just today and this projection doesn't reflect that.

Pakistani TV report: "Local strain of COVID-19 is different from that found in Wuhan and Iran according to experts".

Wait, is this officially announced?

Prince Charles is out of quarantine. I remember seeing something similar about Boris Johnson too.

The reason I wanted to know was that I have been trying to look for a disease pattern to understand the disease distribution and determinants but so far it has been very unclear which is baffling.

Specific age group - No,

gender no,

 low immunity NO. (Contrary to what people said earlier some healthy individual have died).

Extremes of age, no.

Relation to dietc, no.

Alcohol intake, no.

Cigarette smoking maybe.

Underlying morbidity,  yes  but if there is a history of serious medical issues that person could die from any added infection common cold, GI upset so this means nothing.

I then started thinking about spiritual parameters. Haram food,  Zina? But seeing it has affected Iran so badly I ruled these out too. What's left, haram rizq? Qat e rehmi? Yes the last two definitely take away Allah's mercy but COVID... 

I don't know. Nothing is left to random in Allah's plans. There is always a selection process happening somewhere. I wish I could figure this out.
