    Any search on "Italy demographics" will give you that.
    62 million population, 10.5 deaths per 1000 people per year (2018), so 1790 deaths on an average day.
    There were 919 deaths yesterday, or 50% increase in mortality. That seems significant enough to me. Yes, most of those people were elderly and sick, and probably significant part of them would have died over the next decade or so, but most likely very few of them would have died right now. 

    Those 919 are not extra, not added on the people that die each day. But they are included. Everyone that dies that has a trace of the virus in their blood is counted towards coronas deaths. But they would had died from any other season flu as well. 

    A very decorated microbiologist here shares a different point of view and straight up says that the virus is not the cause of death but the underlying issues are. Something our local WotLabs doctor called "unequivocally, 100%, unadulterated bullshit."

    Controlled environment? Which particular cruise ship were you talking about, almost all cruise ship has pepple left before they were forced to be quarantined. Plus I would like to see multiple sources backing the "15%", at what particular time and location.

    Also, in what method of estimation the "close to 0%" can be came up with? Does that mean there are flavour variables which makes the virus less lethal the longer it is around instead of its potential mutation?

    I am not convinced.

    The Diamond Princess

    The 15% statistic came from my country's ministry of health. I'm pretty sure you'll find it somewhere but google is pages upon pages of fear mongering so not too easy.

    I don't get the fears of mutation, like others viruses don't mutate or something. With the 0% I meant it's something that will not kill a healthy person. It's not zombie apocalypse. The virus itself is not the cause of death. It only complicates pre existing conditions.

    Anyway like I mentioned it's much harder to do research now as there are way too many fear mongering results. I can't even find how many people die normally in Italy every day lol. I read the other day from W.H.O. itself that 2/3 of annual deaths have some kind of complication with a virus or a flu and I cannot find it again for my life.

    You clearly havent seen the mortality rate in Italy. Over 600 people died yesterday

    It isnt the plague but its killing so many people its insane

    What is the number of people dying daily in Italy in for example 2019? It is a 60 million country.

    Mortality rate of COVID19 in Italy is about 9% out of confirmed cases. Confirmed cases are only about 15% of the actual cases. Actual mortality rate is about 1% and that to people with already prexisting problems. Infect a healthy portion of the population and you'll see a mortality rate close to 0%
    The only controlled enviroment where we saw the actual mortality rate of the virus was that cruise ship. Mortality rate on that was between 0.05% to 1% and it was mostly occupied by older people as well. 


    God people! I thought these forums were a place for smart people!

    I'm not sure if political stances are 100% public health compatible....

    its one thing to fight terrorists, it's another to try to combat a pandemic virus

    It's that now, it's going to be another thing later. All for the sake of "public safety". That's more frightening to me than any flu. Especially in Europe that we already surrendered our right to bare arms.

    Just saying. That's what I get from this whole thing. 

  5. I passed pneumonia and I didn't even know I had it while I was in the airforce. Same with H1N1 some years later.

    Also the high mortality rates are not statistically true since that's on the confirmed cases, in reality the cases are several times more but they never get confirmed because of no need to get hospitalized. In Greece the message we all got on our phones was that if we feel sick NOT to try to get to a hospital.

    It's a neat social experiment though. Sacrifice all liberty for some false sense of security. You know the famous Benjamin Franklin quote? "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

    I personally find all the bans everywhere appalling.

    kills have a massive impact on base XP

    you notice it more during ranked where some sub 2k dmg player can out xp you because he got more kills than you despite having double or triple the dmg 

    I think they mentioned they fixed that in ranked  and kills count less. In ranked I just might have been 1st in that battle because role XP and damaged bounced.

    XP farming means securing kills, going for kills over damage also increases your win odds imo, but it fucks ur dpg more than the one shot because it cuts down gametime


    Definitely in a brawl kind of situation, or when peaking for 2 targets one 1hit and another full hp,  but when I have an lone 183 firing HESH vs 3 of our tanks, I think it would actually hurt to wait for the other two to get him down to one shot and then get the kill. If they bounce once, he'll have time to reload.

    But yeah I get it I do have over 1k clan war battles in the good ol days haha but I find it difficult to believe it's possible to have 4 kills consistently.

    Jesus. I just logged into the test server and looked things over. If this is the end result, what a disappointment. No apparent nerfs to anything that needs it,

    Oh but they nerfed everything... But Heavies and Arties. Heavies now have more HP yet the prem ammo you need to pen them does less damage, not to mention tank HE doesn't do nearly as much dmg as before, so survivability of heavies skyrocketed. Just imagine how much they widened the gap between Heavies and Mediums now. 


    Even the arty nerf just basically boils down to forcing people to shoot gold arty shells in order to keep their current damage output.

    You must have not read something right. Arty's damage remain the same with the normal shell that does stun as well. They keep their pen too. The 2nd shell just does more damage, so it's an arty buff and that's the bottom line (cause Stone Cold said so.) 

    This is easily the worst thing that has happened in WOT.

    On the one hand, rare and funny-looking tank. 

    On the other hand, I don't spend much time in low tiers and that minimum bid is a lot when I have so many tier 10s unlocked

    Yeah I'll probably never play it as well. Lowered it to 12.8 mil

    I had figured that this years'BM would be at least as interesting as last years but so far its all be low tier crap or crazy limited mid tier. literally the only half decent tank thats come up has been the Caern AX and the Mutz (and now technically the EBR) all 3 marathon rewards tanks. im half surprised the renegade or the even the 703 haven't shown up yet.


    INB4 the last offer is a defender and the "Is that a tank" meme refers to the pile of rust it is 

    I mean they want gold right? Instead of crap for gold like 3D styles and orders, why not put the defender or the 703 or the IS3A up for auction? Limited numbers not to cause inflation. I wouldn't buy them as I don't have gold but atleast some people would be happy compared to none.
