China Is Likely Seeing 1 Million Covid Cases, 5,000 Deaths a Day

This article from Bloomberg may be of interest to subscribers. Here is a section:

China is likely experiencing 1 million Covid infections and 5,000 virus deaths every day as it grapples with what is expected to be the biggest outbreak the world has ever seen, according to a new analysis.

The situation could get even worse for the country of 1.4 billion people. This current wave may see the daily case rate rise to 3.7 million in January, according to Airfinity Ltd., a London-based research firm that focuses on predictive health analytics and has been tracking the pandemic since it first emerged. There’ll likely then be another surge of infections that will push the daily peak to 4.2 million in March, the group estimated.

Eoin Treacy's view

Another story this morning quoted a Chinese health official as saying 37 million people are being infected every day. That’s a variation of exactly 10X in the above estimates.
