CV Central - 3/5/2020 - "Brain Infection, Doctor Concerns, and New Modeling"
/

In this twenty-second episode, we report new evidence from China which further suggests #Covid-19 is a neurological disorder, as well as another example of an infected person who was nominally "cured" who has now died.  India has found their first cluster, California has their first reported death, and South Africa is now infected.  An NHS doctor from the UK lays out what help ICUs need and Singapore develops a new three hour 99% accurate test.  The NHS stops reporting daily and Florida refuses to expand testing as two examples of bad policy endangering the public trust.   Lastly, we look at a predictive model from Australia suggesting this will cost 3-10% of the world economy and a death toll in the tens of millions in the best-case scenario.
