Anybody get the feeling they're not telling us the actual number of cases?

I'm a thousand percent sure China covered this up when it first started

Just a reminder that these very same networks were telling you all to remain calm so they could manage their financial interests before you panicked and the markets stagnate...

Everyone saying we need a _"cure"_ for this please realize it is a virus. There is no such thing as a cure for a virus like this. You can only treat the symptoms while the hots immune system fights it off. The best we can do is make a vaccine for it limiting the spread.
But unfortunately current estimates put that at 2-2.5 months away from -completion.- (Edit: At which point It can began trials and assuming all goes well mass production can potentially begin with 2020)
*Edit2:* There are some promising in-lab test's that show _Remdesivir_ and _Chloroquine_ to be effective at stopping the reproduction of 2019-NCoV. But we are _years_ away from that being a usable treatment.

The problem is many people who get it show no symptoms and can spread it for up to two weeks. This means containing it is no longer possible, no one knows who’s sick for sure.

How can you say "More of X happens in a year than Y", when Y hasn't even existed for a year yet?
