Italy Coronavirus Case Fataility Rate and Infections Trend Analysis

Politics / Pandemic Mar 26, 2020 - 07:56 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Italy is in full blown Coronavirus crisis mode that just posted a record 793 deaths! Higher than the worst that China reported (fake numbers). However, where Italy is concerned it's not all bad news, as momentum in the rate of new infections has been slowing for some time, which suggests that by early April Italy's rate of infections should have started to flatten out at about 130,000 infected. So whilst there is a lot more pain to come i.e. Italy's infections numbers are likely set to double once more, nevertheless there is light at the end of Italy's dark tunnel.


Still Italy's CFR of 9% is shockingly high! i.e. implies to expect over 12,500 deaths and it remains to be seen to what extent the CFR could worsen yet given that Italy's healthcare system already being overwhelmed let alone potentially face a more than doubling in the number of infected patients by Mid April.

So Italy is a warning of what to expect if a nation does not act quickly to contain and manage outbreaks South Korea style the consequences of which are that severe Panic actions are implemented to HALT the pandemic, such as shutting down the whole nation, and that there is a LAG of about 2 weeks between measures taken and results in slowing the progression of a parabolic pandemic. Thus Italy's total lock down actions this week will manifest in early April by which time the total infected in Italy could reach 130,000 before starting to flattening out towards 140,000.

Thus the big question mark is can the US and UK avoid becoming Italy 2.0 for both have been slow to act where the UK 2 weeks from now could be seeing an CFR of 9% and the US 4 weeks from now. Or with advance warning act to pull off a miracle by resolving towards South Koreas 1% that so far rather than being the norm is turning out to be an outlier as most nations are resolving towards a CFR of between 3% and 6%.

In terms of infections trend, if the UK and US followed Italy's curve then the UK would start to flatten out in about 4 weeks time and the US in about 6 weeks time. So around Mid April for the UK and early May for the US. However in terms of the rates of infection, I am expecting both nations to be at an advantage to Italy and should in relative terms resolve to lower rates of infections. For they have NO excuse NOT listening to the messages screaming and crying out of Italy!
