The issue we have here is a misunderstanding of the term "antibiotics".
Antibiotics are usually agents that kill the foreign body.
The HIV cocktail (a.k.a ART) is a mix of inhibitors that don't affect the virus directly but rather prevent processes that naturally occur in the body that the virus piggy backs on to replicate and in that way prevent it from spreading. But the virus itself is unharmed.
So that is why ART and other antivirals are not considered antibiotics.

Looks like I was beaten to it.

As i observe the situation, i suspect that another big issue is sympathetic infection. In the rush to get everyone a hospital bed, they have cut corners and let the sanitation discipline go lax. Now sympathetic infections are dangerous in normal, top of the line state of the art hospitals, but in an epidemic? nightmare fuel. 

 

We maybe at a point, where it may be safer to stay home and stay hydrated, then it is to go to the doctor.

Well we've passed 500 dead. Looking to overtake Sars in half the time of it. I wonder how far it'll go....

What concerns me, is that the number dead, is the same as the number of reported infected from two weeks ago. 

 

1.22.2020: 651 confirmed infected, 25 dead. 2.6.2020: 31,214 confirmed infected, and 639 confirmed dead. 

Note that the communist numbers may be doctored. 

 

also, we have not seen any images of recovered people in china. This is something that strikes me odd and is concerning.

Knowing China, that would not be surprising.

720 dead. 2000 'recovered'; 35,000 cases, and China is touting a picture of four health care workers who 'recovered', (saw it on France24) but that's probably to offset their dead whistleblower.

 

The damn thing isn't doubling, but it doesn't seem to be burning out or slowing down, either. Just how many people went into that damn market? There's talk of fecal-transmission now, like SARS.

Everything about this is screwy. If this was the only thing going on, it would be bad enough, but it's not. 

 

the disruption is now killing off livestock due to loss of feed. This is on top of other food disruptions due to year of the rat plague year. So when everything is resolved, food prices will go up due to demand caused by the famine. How severe that famine will be, depends on how long this goes on and how many people die. 

 

Now the kicker: had the chinese been honest from the get go, planning and forecasting could have been done to minimize loss of life and disruption. At some point they will have to lift the quarantine just so that they can make medicine and food.  

 

The damage is very severe. Smart people will never trust this regime ever again, and probably start moving business away. So if/when they make a full recovery, things will not be the same. Considering that this is not the first time this has happened, and each time keeps getting worse, there is no other alternative but to move business and manufacturing elsewhere until they sort themselves out.

That wants happens when you cut corners.

Any current info regarding how many ppl have recovered from the disease?

From china or from the rest of the world? What is bothering me is that we don't see pictures of recovered people. We don't see them smiling, or talking, or going home. Granted, this might be to protect them from a panicked public, but at the same time it's also concerning. In an era where the media makes tons of money off of gloom and doom, they are suspiciously silent about this. 

 

It's the silence that bothers me the most.
