  1. As I write this, the single largest concentration of cases outside China is on that cruise liner

    So in a controlled, isolated, almost lab-like environment where it’s real hard to lie about the numbers, one dude has infected about 160 people.

    Yet India claims to have only 3 cases. None in Indonesia. None in Africa, despite all the chinamen there.

    Yeah. Right. That seems likely.

    I think the ruling classes are doing everything they can to suppress the truth so that the masses don’t get annoyed and start bringing out their ropes, pitchforks etc.
