The Doctors issues with italy are explained here:  Coronavirus: Why it's so dangerous in Italy

The Italian mortality rate is so much higher because the Italians are testing a small subset, whilst in S. Korea 30% of all cases are found in 20-29 year olds...who usually show slight to no signs of infection.  

The issues are real, but the statistics are generally apples and oranges from country to country.

Some reasonings, underway by Ron Paul naming the coronavirus a hoax:

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

What's interesting about S. Korea is its expansive testing.  If you look at the fatality rates, S. Korea is under 1% while Italy is now over 7%.  The difference is testing.  In Korea, over 50% of the confirmed cases are ages 20-50, with 20-year-olds accounting for 30% of the confirmed cases.  In Italy, roughly 20% of the cases are for those aged 20-50.  The difference...Korea is testing 3-4 times as manly people, including those who have come in contact with others diagnosed with Covid-19.  In Italy, they don't test until you show symptoms.  If we had testing for everyone today....the line would turn sharp right overnight and we could address those already infected.

Preparedness and early aggression toward testing are the post-China story of this virus.

If you are looking at the numbers, then yes. I think the intent of this graph was to compare the angle of the trajectories, which is much easier to do in this format. I'm not disagreeing with you at all, just sharing what I know about why they would choose this graph (about the only time I ever put my degree in applied mathematics to any use )

It's a logarithmic scale, appropriate for graphs with exponential change. Admittedly often misunderstood for those less familiar with this format, but appropriate just the same.

Interesting opinion piece in Salon. I haven't finished reading it yet, but the premise sets the stage for revolution.

https://www.salon.com/2020/03/15/late-stage-capitalism-primed-us-for-this-pandemic/

It's no secret income/wealth inequality has exploded in the past 20-30 years (give or take). History shows what often happens when the system reaches its tipping point. Not pretty.

Thanks.  What's driving some of my reading focus is years of guilt for having a collection of books I've never made it through (literally hundreds).  They came with my last house (purchased from the family who'd owned the home since 1875...in 1995 only 5 people had ever lived there including the 93-year-old woman who sold us the house, and who we helped move into a retirement home after living with us for 2 weeks (another story for another day)).  They include first and old editions of books like US Grant's autobiography, 15 or so volumes of "the complete Dickens", and a timely instruction guide named "What can a woman do"

Embarrassingly, I have several years' worth of non-stop reading if necessary.

Take a class at Harvard...or MIT...or Someplace else:   EdX

So here is one from Berkeley that starts today.  The Foundations of Happiness at Work

There are over 45,000 people signed up for it.  It's free ($200 if you want a certificate), and will take you 2 to 3 hours per week for 4 weeks. 

In my house, our college daughter is on-line for the rest of the semester.  She is taking an English class that her mother and I may "audit" for the rest of the semester since her classes will be taking place at my house.  The class is small (a dozen students), so we are going to get approval from the professor before we join (and we'll promise to be quiet).  Our daughter is totally fine with it, as she knows she'll be the smartest person in the room. 

I am taking this event to try and force myself to read more.  TV is crap right now, there are no sports, the news is myopically stressful...so I'm going to try and read more in both volume and variety.
 

Sounds like a great plan. Hope you enjoy the English class.

If you like spy novels I very highly recommend Alan Furst's first two books, "Dark Star" and "Night Soldiers". Also Le Carre's "A Perfect Spy." All 3 as good as serious literature. 

Phillip Kerr's novels about the German detective Bernie Gunther are brilliant especially the first 3, collectively known as "Berlin Noir." A Netflix series called "Babylon Berlin" has the same dark feel and takes place around the same time in Berlin.

If you like brighter and morally straightforward books check out Patrick O'Brian's books about British naval Captain Jack Aubrey and Dr. Stephen Maturin. They take place during the times of Napoleon. The first is called "Master and Commander". It's Dense and you may need a companion book called "A Sea of Words"but it's worth it if you like historical novels with strong character development. There are like 20 books in the series so if you like the first you could probably ride out there coronavirus storm inside those books. They're like CS Forester but better.

Also look for a movie adaptation of some of the books in the series called "Master and Commander: Far Side of the World" starring Russell Crowe.
