Even though pets aren't likely to be able to be infected, it's probably not a good idea to let a neighbour's pet in your house or pat someone else's dog if you're out for a walk etc.

As at ~3:40 pm, that link no longer has details of individual cases (age, gender, source of infection).  Did yesterday (even though somewhat incomplete . Quite a few "Details to come"). 

 

Is there an alternative web page with the individual case info?

The only news I saw regarding pets was researcher in hong kong confirmed found a dog that was infected by the virus. But haven't seen any news saying human infected by their pets. But sure pets can carry the virus if infected people touched them

Speaking of data, any chance of posting updates on your incredibly informative trending-cases graphs? Haven't found any equivalent elsewhere.

The dog tested positive - but they retested very carefully and found it was negative.  So assumed to be a contaminated sample or false positive.
The story has a sad ending - the dog was very old (18 IIRC) and actually died of natural causes a couple of days after being cleared.

NZ added now that we have over 150 cases.  Very early days but it seems we are (were?) trending similar to the US and Italy rather than the UK and AU.  NZ trendline steepens if take the origin back a few days (whether start at ~20, ~50 or ~100 cases).   But same may be true for other countries (not checked).

 

If we follow same pattern as other countries, expect another 8 - 10+ days before we start to roll off exponential growth in case numbers due to infection > symptom > test confirmation lag.  By then the number of cases in NZ may be in the 3500 - 6500 range.

 

It will be interesting to see what does happen in the next several days though

 

IF our exponential growth over the last 9 days or so was predominantly due to imported cases, we would expect to see roll off from exponential sooner due fewer incoming passengers (perhaps starting in 3 - 5 days?).  The lag time for imports should be less on average as in most cases infection occurred overseas, with some arriving already symptomatic & confirmed within two days or so.  Hence import contribution to new cases should drop off faster than the impact of the lockdown.

 

Will post an update in a few days (unless people have seen enough of the plot!).

 

==

 

US values are not final for the 25th but are probably not far off (still the 25th in the US).  Based on the worldometers.com data, US will likely exceed Italy (and potentially even match China) in just one more day.

 

Spain already exceeds China at a similar stage of progression.  Italian cases are continuing to taper off though also look likely to rise above China (currently on par).

Small edit to text re impact of fewer incoming passengers.

To be fair, you shouldn't be close enough to pet anyone's anything :)

FineWine: . It even seems like the birds are in lock down.


There is a lot of confusion going on. It's not an avian flu.


A week or so ago I read an article that said iirc that an Israeli team may have a vaccine, because this virus is so similar to a poultry virus that they had been working on for some time.

Can't speak for anyone else here but this is possibly the most informative graph I've seen because it puts everything in one place so you can see the trends, rather than scattered tastefully around a full web page in a way that would win a design award but doesn't show any trends. Even once a day sees too little :-).

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Our cat's well-trained in that regard, anyone but me comes near her and she'll leap out the nearest window.

 

 

Mind you that was happening years before the Covid-19 outbreak...
