A Prediction of 2.5 Billion Infections

The 2019-nCoV death toll as at now is 725 while the total number of confirmed cases reaches 35,000. Besides China, infections have spread to 27 territories and countries. According to thewuhanvirus.com which provides real-time info. 

RT America's Michele Greenstein joins Rick Sanchez to break it down in a report published Saturday. 

Another colleague, Sayeh Tavangar reports on an AI-powered simulation that predicted that the outbreak could infect as many as 2.5 billion people and kill 53 million and explains why doctors say the simulation is dangerously flawed.
Here’s something you ought to know. 

The majority of the novel coronavirus cases in China were considered "mild", WHO epidemiologist Maria van Kerkhove (left) said on Friday.

A breakdown of the 17,000 cases provided by Chinese authorities found that 82 percent of the cases were in that category, 15 percent were considered severe and 3 percent were critical.

And as of Thursday, China's National Health Commission had announced that a total of 1,540 infected people have been cured and discharged from hospitals. I take it as an encouraging sign.

So, stay calm, people; there’s no need to panic!
