Mish:

The mortality rate from the Corona virus is not being calculated correctly. The ratio used is the number of deaths as of today versus the number of identified cases as of today.

However, the deaths as of today were infected / identified a week earlier.

Using yesterday's numbers: The number of deaths was 213 and the number of identified cases was 9816. A week ago, only 941 cases were identified.

Therefore, of that 941, as of today 213 were dead. That's about 22%.

Do the math.

That would explain almost everything. Now is it natural or engineered? There's talk about parts of the rna of this virus being identical to HIV virus, a different family altogether apparently. This wouldn't happen in nature is my layman's interpretation. Some Indian scientists are working on figuring it out among others I'm sure.

Too much evidence piling up ... too many impossible coincidences ... for this to be anything natural.

That would make the mortality rate, given uncertainties, about the same as SARS or MERS.

More hysterical nonsense.
