Well I'm glad to hear that you survived the great tennis elbow pandemic (must have been pretty scary though - my commiserations). The thing is that deaths are "absolute", recoveries are not... at what time can you be sure someone's not going to relapse? And if they survive, their lungs may be so damaged that a future mild infection may kill them, but will that be counted as a C19 death?

I like you "Schroedinger" analogy, grim though it is. But since "recoveries" can be counted only against those tested and confirmed to have C19, again it's fairly meaningless until 100% of the population are counted 100% of the time. Maybe the Dutch are only hospitalising (and testing) people who are almost on their last breath. That's (one reason) why inter-country comparisons are both meaningless and useless.

Finally, I don't think any doctors anywhere are curing people of this, but simply managing to keep them alive long enough that they recover. The common cold is a coronavirus, but even so all we've achieved so far with that is symptom control.

Stay safe and good luck! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
