As to the first, you are right. I don't know and no one does.

As to the second, there is a chart floating around with statistics on symptoms (from China as of Feb 20) and that's also correct, nasal congestion occurred in 4.8% of cases, which is not nothing.

All we have here is probabilities.

On those same lines, I don’t know that the absolutely brutal sickness I got three years ago wasn’t COVID-19, but it’s unreasonable to believe it was.
Three years ago and 3 weeks before is a completely different situation. And of course, pointing out that it is NOT extremely unlikely.

Most of the states that have LOW numbers of coronaviruses cases, have LOW numbers of immigrants , LOW numbers of international students , business people, tourists.

Seeing you mentioned diversity factors first ;Maine and New Hampshire and Vermont are the whitest states in the country with a combined population equal to Massachusetts population
Maine, New Hampshire Vermont have 18 confirmed cases, Diverse Massachusetts has 6 times the number of coronaviruses.

I lived in Mass for over 4 decades. I understand in Mass. it is a social taboo to question diversity's negative effects.

Just want to be clear. You are blaming the states diversity for it's high number of cases? Not the fact that biogen had thier conference in the financial district or Logan is a point of entry airport or Boston is the hub for the region?

.6+1.3+1.3=3.2 which is less than 6.9.

Ask Louisiana what being economic backwater does to stop this.

Massachusetts confirmed cases of coronavirus is over 100. Other states under 15.
If you're from Massachusetts, please, dont come to my state. Stay in Mass

Massachusetts has closed all schools (public and private) for 3 weeks.

That dude Dr. Fauci is predicting that the school year is done.
