    It is a bit long but full of details. For examples, after recovery from the disease, you need to be tested negatively of the virus THREE times consecutively before being released from the hospital.

    "SAVE BERLINS CLUB CULTURE IN QUARANTINE

    The Berlin Club Culture is facing it´s biggest challenge in history. On Friday, the 13th of March, the whole of Berlin´s night life was officially shut down to prevent the spreading of the Corona Virus. Therefore, about 9000 employees, as well as tens of thousands of artists are without work and wages and the many places that give Berlin part of it´s identity face their ruin.

    As a reaction to closing all Berlin Clubs and the rest of the world being in quarantine, Berlin declares it´s support and solidarity by getting the biggest digital club to your home."

    Really wondering whether there already are derivatives markets on COVID-19. Could one bet on the number of confirmed cases in a certain place? Say, would it ever hit 100 in Antarctica? Are such markets legal? How would these products be priced and settled?

    "In the Coronavirus Fight in Scandinavia, Sweden Stands Apart"

    ... Sweden's approach appeals to the public's self-restraint and sense of responsibility, Mr. Tegnell said. "That's the way we work in Sweden. Our whole system for communicable disease control is based on voluntary action. The immunization system is completely voluntary and there is 98 percent coverage," he explained.

    "You give them the option to do what is best in their lives," he added. "That works very well, according to our experience."

    全球疫情的數字,我比較常到 Our World in Data 計畫的疫情專頁查看。Our World in Data 是 Max Roser 於 2012 年在牛津大學當博士後時發起的專案,目前團隊大概九個人,有受到 Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 的贊助。計畫的精神就用網站上這段話說吧:

    "Our World in Data is created as a public good. All data is available for download. All visualisations are Creative Commons licensed. And all the tools we build are entirely open source."

    我承認這個有打中我。這計畫的疫情網頁 "Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) – Statistics and Research" 在這:

    https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus

    這網頁每日更新一次,資料來自 European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC)。不用 WHO 的數字,這計畫說得很明白:錯誤很多,還不更正。ECDC 的資料涵蓋全球的國家(當然包括科索沃、巴勒斯坦、以及台灣),以及之前在日本的一艘國際運輸器 (International conveyance in Japan)。看到這裡,是不是覺得很爽?

    這網頁不只是簡單的數字加總跟圖表。上面還有,舉例來說,「確診死亡數要多少天才加倍」(How long did it take for the number of total confirmed deaths to double?),可按照國家查詢。目前重災區中,義大利每 4 天死亡人數倍增,西班牙每 3 天倍增,法國每 4 天倍增,美國每 3 天倍增,英國每 4 天倍增,等等。中國,嗯,每 38 天倍增。

    「第 100 例確診之後軌跡圖」(Trajectories since the 100th confirmed case) 則呈現各地區(各國)的確診數在第 100 例之後的走勢。歐美重災區過去每 3 天倍增。新加坡、日本是每 10 天倍增,台灣這一陣子每 5 天倍增(但才過 100 例不久)。韓國初期聲勢驚人,每 2 天倍增,不過目前壓到每 5 天倍增(韓國已有近 10000 例)。如圖。

    研究工作嘛,濃茶咖啡免不了。這幾天為了看線圖,每天加喝一罐可口可樂!

    "Lessons From Taiwan on the Fight Against the Coronavirus: Between Politics and Collective Experience" by Andres Herrera-Feligreras and Ferran Pérez Mena

    https://newbloommag.net/2020/03/23/tw-coronavirus-politics-experience/

    ... How did Taiwan achieve its successes in fighting the COVID-19 coronavirus? Taiwan's strategy in its response to the coronavirus has been informed by three key inter-societal and historic elements: Taiwan's state formation during the 20th century, the political culture among elites that stems from the former process, and the collective experience of the Taiwanese population in dealing with the forces of nature.
