Also interesting in that thread is this:
No. of days it takes for patients to die;
Italy - 8 days
South Korea - 10 days
Japan - 19-20 days
That’s quite a discrepancy between the three. Could be to do with the health system, the speed of treating the symptoms or it could add some weight to the arguement that there might be different strands in different places.
Or maybe that Italy have so many cases that they can't treat them all and are often not treating those with low recovery potential. Therefore those people die more quickly than they would if they had received a bed in the ICU.
