I do wonder about all these stats being bandied about. The grimmest of them include China in the figures where by far the largest number of cases have been reported. Taking China's 1.4b population out of the counting one might see that some figures show the infection rate is 0.000073% of the world's population.
As of yesterday, there were 51 confirmed cases in the UK out of the 13,911 people tested.
and a week or so ago there were just a handful in Italy now 2500+ with 79 dead.
Today there are now 85 with three unknown sources of transmission.
