Researchers are still working to determine the R0 for COVID-19.  Preliminary studies estimated an R0 value for the new coronavirus to be between 2 and 3, according to a review study published Feb. 28 in the journal JAMA. This means each infected person has spread the virus to an average of 2 to 3 people.

Some studies suggest COVID-19 has an even higher R0 value. For example, a study published April 7 in the journal Emerging Infectious Disease used mathematical modeling to calculate an R0 of nearly 6 in China.

It's important to note that R0 is not a constant number. Estimates can vary by location, depending on such factors as how often people come into contact with each other and the efforts taken to reduce viral spread, Live Science previously reported.

Firstly these R values are just estimates based on models from what I can see.

Let's look at some studies instead of mainstream media interpretation.

This study from Jan estimated R value as

Quote

The R values of 2019-nCoV were 2.90 (95%CI: 2.32-3.63) and 2.92 (95%CI: 2.28-3.67) estimated using EG and ML respectively, while the corresponding R values of SARS-CoV were 1.77 (95%CI: 1.37-2.27) and 1.85 (95%CI: 1.32-2.49).

This study from July estimated R values as

Quote

We found R0 is likely to be 5.7 given our current state of knowledge, with a broad 95% CI (3.8–8.9).

Bear in mind that the Spanish flu which killed 50 million people (apparently) had an R value below

Quote

For example, in 1918 there was a worldwide outbreak of the swine flu that killed 50 million people. According to a review article published in BMC Medicine, the R0 value of the 1918 pandemic was estimated to be between 1.4 and 2.8.

But when the swine flu, or H1N1 virus, came back in 2009, its R0 value was between 1.4 and 1.6, report researchers in the journal Science. The existence of vaccines and antiviral drugs made the 2009 outbreak much less deadly.

So again have they presented any evidence that 2019-nCoV is any more contagious than other respiratory virus because I don't think they have.

Why are you spamming this thread with your inane school boy naive drivel?

You bring nothing to the party apart from BO, cooties and bad breath. Please leave.

People use this thread to keep abreast of current news. Looks like you get yours from MSM. Which is fine. Please go back to it and let us mad conspiracy theorists crack on.

This looks like the study that the scientific community is using as evidence for the idea that asymptomatic people are capable of spreading 2019-ncov.

You can see from this study that the example is quite ridiculous. A Chinese person becomes sick on a flight and they then blame it on a German businessman who was not showing any illness. They then PCR tested people in the same company and some came back positive even though no symptoms. Yet many studies are citing this study as a source. Is it not possible she picked up the illness on the flight or maybe had picked up an illness in China before travelling to Germany. These possibilities seem to have been not explored by this study.

"However, it comes as a leaked NHS document revealed coronavirus could hit hospitals five times harder than in April, when an average of 16,000 beds were required for coronavirus patients per day."

Again what does this prove, its more speculation.

The first wave Ferguson claimed would kill 500,000 people.

He has a serious history of massive blunders, yet the media & gov never stop taking his bullshit seriously.

And muppets like you who post speculative metro links as some kind of evidence.

Regarding your deaths from FLU in 2018, did you inquire as to how many had underlying health conditions? And I didn't see your response to how Sars-2 is just a tad more virulent.

No you missed my point on how this is nothing new or more dangerous than any other bad flu season. As you are posting Fail links.

Did you read my post on WHO & the Swine flu?

No course you didnt.

Some questions:

1. What crazy reason would they admit their test was inaccurate if the virus was hoaxed?

Maybe they are pissed off with their corporate overlords & worried they might be exposed & lynched for their crimes or maybe they are Satanist rubbing it in your face, with a dumbed down zombie public, that accept any draconian shit.

Narcissists tend to do this & Boris does it all the time.

Yes the tests are fraudulent thats a fact...so yes its a hoax.

2. What crazy reason would they release stats that DIDN'T back up the fake virus?

3. What crazy reason would they soften the blow by mentioning underlying health conditions?

Because not everyone is in on the scam?

If it were worse we would hear more about it and at least have one neighbour who has had it. You do seem hell bent on pushing your own narrative. I have seen this in another forum - and that forum was infiltrated by officers and similar  trying to sway public opinion in matters of cases before the courts. Just an observation, and I`m sure you are only trying to `play`devils advocate. The fact of the matter is....to bring it to a truthful perspective... no-one knows anyone with the virus,  the false positives are off the charts, somehow regular flu has vanished in favour of Covid in the minds of those controlling or perpetuating the official narrative. Hospitals are devoid of actual covid patients and in care homes those with pneumonia are supposedly dying of covid. As I see it, anyone who pushes the official narrative at this point is either malinformed or being paid to push the cause. I`m sure this isn`t you... but a happy smiley face can hide a multitude of plots....just ask the joker.  ;-)

One of the filthiest tactics of the Panic Merchants is to claim that anyone who opposes their strangling of the country is callous and cares only about money, not life.

Dissenters have been pelted with slime of this kind by Johnson, the man who ruined Britain, and by his dense sidekick, Hancock – perhaps the first Health Secretary in history who does not know that malaria is spread by mosquitoes. They tell us we wish to ‘let the virus rip’.

Well, Johnson and Hancock, if you care so much about lives, get in touch with Lisa King, as I did. Ask her to tell you about how her husband Peter, a retired taxi driver aged 62, died.

It is a horrible, upsetting story, involving a grown man screaming in agony. And in my view it is an absolutely direct consequence of Hancock’s conversion of the NHS into a National Covid Service which treats everything else as a nuisance.

Peter King was grudgingly granted (as so many now are) a remote session with a GP who, unable to meet him, and apparently ignorant of his records, diagnosed his severe chest discomfort as reflux. I am not especially interested in blaming this doctor. Under the conditions created by Hancock, he was presumably doing his best.

But it was not good enough. Actually the trouble was far more serious – a stone trapped in his gall bladder – and the resulting delay meant he was overcome with indescribable pain a few days later.

Peter was given emergency surgery to reduce the agony, but needed a more radical operation. He was put on the urgent list for it. But this was still too late. He fell terribly ill again and despite the heroic efforts of paramedics, he died. The many years of happy life which Peter and Lisa King might otherwise have had were wiped out for ever.

This is not just some isolated case. Something like 25 million appointments with GPs have been lost as a result of the Johnson Government’s panic (not as a result of Covid, as the hopelessly pro-Government BBC always says. The Government had a choice over how to respond, and took the wrong path).

I hear what you're saying. Though I think there are quite a few ordinary people who are secretly wondering if the so-called 'conspiracy theorists' were right all along. Some people who I thought were totally into the system have said to me things like, 'Something doesn't feel right about this' and 'There's something else going on here'.

But I think they're too afraid to speak out about it. That's where we can help. Give them a safe conversational space for them to think freely and consider alternative possibilities.

Just like you, I am meeting people who are seeing the over the top of CV signs, barriers, screens, rules, 24/7 terror news etc. and are waking up.

How much has been spent just here alone (photo below), not to mention for the whole country on visual propaganda?

"Truthers" use them to cherry pick stats and quotes. Then when presented with the bits they don't use, play the MSM card to avoid responding. Ffs.

To be fair, Bamboo has presented the ultimate argument in controlled narrative by the MSM. That story has been surpressed by Facebook and Twatter. Whilst you have your position, you have to acknowledge that story has been doubled down on by the msm. I mean FFS, they're calling Guiliani a drunk and that guy took down the Mafia for crying out loud. Also trying to say he is in cahoots with the Russians!

So I think we can safely say that the media lies and it's obvious.

Dude, I saw that was your claim from 3 posts ago. Stop cluttering up the thread.

Sceptics of what? The general term is used to denote somebody who doubts accepted opinion. So that would be you lot. But I won't be so rash in my claims. Truthers/sceptics only sometimes fall prey to fake news and you should all point it out when they do, not leave it to people like me to do it!

However, they DO use mainstream sites but very rarely quote the whole thing. As I said and has been demonstrated on this thread....small cherry picked "ahaaah" snippets are used, sometimes out of context, often without pointing out other variables and certainly never using anything from mainstream sites that contradict the general line of the claim.

That isn't truth seeking, that is confirmation bias.

The media does lie and it is usually very obvious when they do. It doesn't however mean they do it all the time or conduct ludicrously concocted and sustained campaigns. It's one thing the government and money making advisory bodies  messing with the numbers and projections, which I'm inclined to lean towards than to suggest the whole damn thing is a fake. That's  just absurd and DOES require large numbers to suppress multiple avenues of inquiry.

And yes, there is of course censorship which I most certainly do not agree with ANYWHERE
