I haven't seen a better update on the Novel Coronavirus than Dr. Chris Martenson. He's an economic researcher by trade, but he completed both a PhD and post-doctoral program at Duke University. His specialty was in neurotoxicology. His background makes his opinion count in my book. These will be updated as they are updated, and he's doing a great job at updating this on a daily basis.
CDC Answers some very important questions.
Lancaster University in the UK says that the actual number of infected cases are more likely 10 to 25 times the reported numbers from the World Health Organization in China. That is @x10=597,970 up to @x25=1,494,925.
What about the # of deaths?
