Coronavirus Central - Episode 3 - February 12, 2020
In Episode Three of Coronavirus Central, we're going to review the daily numbers, take a much closer look at Singapore's situation as a larger example that parallels the issues the cruise ship are facing, explain the difference between mortality rate and case fatality rate and also why lower initial mortality can with a highly infectious virus make it harder to stop, trace, leading to more deaths in the end. An introduction to some US government resources is also shared, as well as information about coconut oil as a potential natural option to bolster your own defenses against Covid-19.
