Coronavirus Infections Spread vs Forecast - 30th Jan 2020 Pandemic Update

Politics / Pandemic Jan 30, 2020 - 03:28 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

The Coronavirus continues it's exponential spread across China, this despite Chinese state propaganda peddling a line of measures taken especially earlier in the month having limited the spread of the virus that is not being born out by data released that on a daily basis shows the spread is exponential to across the whole of China and likely neighbouring nations.

My analysis and concluding forecast of 28th January based on data up until the 27th of January utilised trend analysis to forecast that the Coronavirus could infect over 1 million people by the end of February 2020, which given the apparent fatality rate of 3.5% at the time converted into an death toll of at least 35,000. Which if it transpired would be far worse than the 2002-2003 SARS pandemic that infected 8,098 over 8 months resulting in 774 deaths, and this the Coronavirus would have significant economic and market consequences.

And here is a closer look at the trend forecast graph.

As the graph illustrates the trend trajectory forecast infections to only really start taking off globally mid February when the number of infections are expected to exceed 100,000 and deaths 2,500. So we are still some 12 days away from when the Coronavirus pandemic really starts to take off. Which means that the world has a short window of opportunity to act to limit the spread of the virus.

Unfortunately the worlds governments are doing the exact opposite, where even at this stage are actively flying home potentially infected nationals, with a flight of some 200 British nationals being brought to the UK tomorrow. No matter what the government states, the British government just as the Chinese government before it will NOT be able to contain infections from such flights as it only takes 1 person to start an epidemic in the UK.

Instead it would have been far better to isolate suspected infections rather than to transport to infection free areas!. Thus I am afraid the actions of most Governments will contribute to the spread of the virus and thus the forecast trend trajectory remains very highly probable.

Infections Map 30th Jan 2020 Update

The world map illustrates the spread of the virus as of today (30th Jan 2020), where infections now total 7,700.

Is the virus Spreading Faster than Forecast Or Not?

The forecast for the number of infections and deaths by 30th of January 2020 vs actual:

  Infections Deaths
Forecast - 30th Jan 6041 211
Actual - 30th Jan 7700 170
% Change 127% 80%

Were this trend to continue into the end of February 2020 then the number of infected would increase to 1.27 million, whilst the number of deaths would fall to 28,000. So the latest data implies a wider spread but a lower mortality rate.

However, these are still the very early days of the spread of the Coronavirus, especially given that there are large susceptible populations groups with poor healthcare infrastructure such as India that announced it's first infection today. Also that a vaccine is still a good 4 months away. far too late to have any impact on this pandemic.

Meanwhile this is what China and asia's infections map currently looks like, a harbinger of what to expect when the virus travels into uninfected populations.

Contrary to all of the measures taken by the Chinese to limit it's spread the virus has now spread to the whole of China which means it cannot be contained and is only a matter of time before it goes global at roughly the same rate of spread.

Silver Price Trend Forecast 2020

We can all dream about SIlver outpacing Gold. However the truth about Silver is that it tends to under perform during precious metals bull markets, and only really coming alive in the bull markets final stages when it tends to spike. So Silver for 2019 did what Silver tends to do which is to under perform against Gold. Though in reality maybe investors tend to set their hopes too high, as a gain of 15% for the year is still pretty good going against Gold up 19%.
