In Episode Four, we review the change in criteria by the Chinese government to include clinically diagnosed cases which saw a jump of 14,480 new cases and 242 new deaths reported on February 12th.  These new criteria bring the numbers closer to what mathematical modeling predicts as we share two studies that suggest the transmission rate should be between 5 and 6 with an incubation period as long as 24 days observed.  This means the 14 day quarantines are ineffective, as the spread of cases into the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and others makes clear, from which global air and trade continues unabated.  We close with a tip about how to ensure you always have potable drinking water for a $5 investment.
