A fine post on the virus by Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, a general practitioner. Interesting information about what's known--a little--and what's not--a lot. Also quite interesting on the difficulties assigning "cause of death". Not scary until the (speculative) conclusion:
This pandemic is going to be a model for all mass panicking stupidity in the future. Because to do otherwise, would be to admit that we made a pig’s ear of it this time. Far too many powerful reputations at stake to allow that.
