COVID-19 Conflation?

The John Hopkins map claiming to be documenting Coronavirus cases is less accurate then it should be. And the flaw is reported just below the map.
"Data sources: WHO, CDC, ECDCNHC and DXY and local media reports"
Local media reports?

From the blog:
In response to this ongoing public health emergency, we developed an interactive web-based dashboard (static snapshot shown above) hosted by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University, to visualize and track reported cases in real-time.
Reported cases are not necessarily confirmed and actual cases.
"To identify new cases, we monitor various twitter feeds, online news services, and direct communication sent through the dashboard."
New cases are identified via twitter feeds and online news services? 

The COVID- 19 Government of Canada website  

Reports as of 7:00 am est that the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases sits at 304.

John Hopkins map, at this same time, is reporting Canada as having 339 confirmed cases.

That's an additional 35 cases claimed as confirmed by John Hopkins.
It follows that if John Hopkins has errors in it's confirmed cases, there are errors in all other data including deaths.

If there are inaccuracies in Canada's data- Surely other nations data,as featured, is incorrect also?

One wonders if John Hopkins is conflating data? (regular flu and Covid CONFLATED as an example)

"Combining two or more separate things to form a whole"

Corona Pandemic Hysteria = Global Psychological Operation??

  1. I decided on March 13 that the map was useless. I left a comment here on March 13 regarding cases in Italy. When I was searching that map I expected Italy to be right up there with China and Korea, but it wasn't. I carefully searched those lists twice looking for "Italy". Puzzled that I couldn't find it, I looked at the map and clicked on the larger red circle on northern Italy and that's where I found "San Marino" (69) and the little red circle was the "Holy See" (1). I noticed while searching that the map had been updated just minutes before.

    Then I left my comment here regarding what I found. About an hour or so later, I checked the map again and lo & behold! The country of Italy was covered in a large red circle when it had not been before. Also "Italy" showed up under the search column.

  2. Here's an interesting article. You'll need to run it through a translator. The paper has a language choice, but if I choose English I can't get the article to come up. So I cut and pasted it into https://www.deepl.com/translator to be able to read it.

    1. It would probably help to have linked the article...

    2. translated for readers convenience

      Rome, 13 Mar 19:12 - (Agenzia Nova) - There may be only two people who died from coronavirus in Italy, who did not present other pathologies. This is what emerges from the medical records examined so far by the Higher Institute of Health, according to what was reported by the President of the Institute, Silvio Brusaferro, during the press conference held today at the Civil Protection in Rome. "Positive deceased patients have an average of over 80 years - 80.3 to be exact - and are essentially predominantly male," said Brusaferro. "Women are 25.8 percent. The average age of the deceased is significantly higher than the other positive ones. The age groups over 70, with a peak between 80 and 89 years. The majority of these people are carriers of chronic diseases. Only two people were not presently carriers of diseases ", but even in these two cases, the examination of the files is not concluded and therefore, causes of death different from Covid-19 could emerge. The president of the ISS has specified that "little more than a hundred medical records" have so far come from hospitals throughout Italy.

      These are the first minimum detailed data provided so far by the Civil Protection on the causes of death of coronavirus patients. At present, in fact, the authorities are unable to distinguish those who died from the virus, from those who, on the other hand, are communicated daily to the public, but who were mostly carriers of other serious diseases and who therefore would not have died from Covid-19. In response to a question from "Agenzia Nova", in fact, Brusaferro was unable to indicate the exact number of coronavirus deaths. However, the professor clarified that, according to the data analyzed, the vast majority of the victims "had serious pathologies and in some cases the onset of an infection of the respiratory tract can lead more easily to death. To clarify this point , and provide real data, "as we acquire the folders we will go further. In any case, the populations most at risk are fragile, carriers of multiple pathologies

  3. Here's a paper with details of cases and testing:

  4. Apologies for cluttering up your comments section. I'm really angry. Scott had a video yesterday talking about bar/restaurant hours and general curfew in Hoboken, NJ, and today I wake up to see that Ohio is taking it one step further and CLOSING bars and restaurants statewide. Apparently take out is ok but no dining in any restaurant. I'm sure curfew is next then you'll be hearing "papers please!!"

    1. It's the same here. Casinos shut down.
      We're awaiting news if hubby will be sent home from work as well- if they shut down- I was at the bank this morning and you should see the line ups!!!

    2. I so very much wish people would get an effing clue. The panic is the worst part. I really dread the day "they" take it to their intended end point. People will lose their minds.

    3. Gwen: Depends on one's objective whether or not the panic is the worst part. For some us, it's a shocking thing to witness, for sure.

      "A mind is a terrible thing to lose." Even the New York times admitted that back in 2011, via an opinion writer.
      https://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/02/a-mind-is-a-terrible-thing-to-lose/

      And then maybe they said, "Eureka! Let's see if we can help that along".

    4. Gwen and yaya:
      it is shocking to watch- I'm still going out as usual
      but have been washing my hands more.

      But the hoarding is weird. I'm all for having some stuff ahead- Such as paper products- like last year when hubby and I had the flu, we used a lot of kleenex and it was good to have extra at home- but this is much more then that.. There is a 'black market' being created around sanitizers and tp- and closing everything down?
      this idea of only smaller gatherings?
      what's the logic?

      If you go to and fro between multiple small gatherings vs attending one larger gathering is that really safer?

      bizarre

    5. Well, you know, Penny, you can always use your bedsheet to blow your nose. What do you think they did in olden times? LOL

      I emailed my dentist's office to say that I'm going to charge them for not giving me a full 24 hours notice of cancellation of my appointment. What fair is fair, eh?
      They'll get a good laugh out of it. So far, they haven't had much to laugh at. They've had to shut down completely except for emergencies.

  5. You're right, Penny. The precision of most stats available is to be taken with a grain of salt. But Ontario has 12.5 million people, so even if the estimate of 125 cases is off a bit, it's still shaping up to be a drop in the bucket.

    Here are the latest stats for the regular flu in Canada totalling 49,501 cases.

    2. Yeah, there was a time when getting out of town did a person some good. You could always say, out of my way, you guys, I'm blowing this whistle stop. Now we're all under house arrest. Good thing we can laff.

  6. I gotta say just this one last thing: the flu stats that Canada is recording include reports from "Flu Watchers". You, yourself, can sign up to be a "Flu Watcher".

    Make what you will of that!

  7. checked Canada's information again at both sites
    JH's and Gov of Canada

    JH's -375
    Gov of Canada - 324

    as of 2:35 pm est the discrepancy between the two sources has grown larger still- how is that possible?

    Yaya: "Flu watchers" eh?
    so some hysterical individuals can make all kinds of crazeee reports- that's just great!

  8. I don't check the Johns Hopkins site anymore. It's fancy, but not really informative.

    I would recommend these two sites:

    https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/
    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

    Both seem to be pretty fast and accurate on updating, and they cite their sources!

  9. They're pretty much a dime a dozen now. Here's one created by a teenager.
    https://ncov2019.live/data
    They're essentially clones of one another with regard to info, it seems, but in different formats.

  10. You're right, there are always people to jump on the bandwaggon.
    But as I mentioned:
    both sites cite their sources for each new information. So it's not just a simple copy-paste action, but they seem to really do their research!

  11. I'm sorry to seem so contrary, Anon, but the slight variations in the figures don't mean much to me. The Johns Hopkins site gives its sources too (WHO, CDC, ECDC, NHC and DXY and local media reports). And they have a link to a blog about the issue plus a FAQ, and that doesn't mean much to me either. What I see is that there's a flu going around that doesn't seem to behave much differently from the regular flu in terms of severity and effect on the already compromised. It's not at all like the Plague where there were deaths in every household, yet governments are acting as if it is that serious. It seems like mass hypnotism to me.

  12. Anon and Yaya:

    John Hopkins cites their sources as well- And their credibility, just like the others is lacking. Local media sources? that's not a verified medical case necessarily.

    Did either of you read the article from Italy?

    "There may be only two people who died from coronavirus in Italy, who did not present other pathologies."

    These are the first minimum detailed data provided so far by the Civil Protection on the causes of death of coronavirus patients. At present, in fact, the authorities are unable to distinguish those who died from the virus, from those who, on the other hand, are communicated daily to the public, but who were mostly carriers of other serious diseases and who therefore would not have died from Covid-19. In response to a question from "Agenzia Nova", in fact, Brusaferro was unable to indicate the exact number of coronavirus deaths

    Yet were getting these wild numbers out of Italy?
