If the virus establishes a foothold outside China, the only thing between us and a major-league worldwide pandemic (like influenza, but with 200-1000 times as many deaths) is the summer, and that might only be a reprieve.

Virus vs Human. Yes, Summer will help considerably but don't discount human ingenuity.

What is getting very little press is that severe/critical cases are on decline in China.

Yesterday they decreased by another 1053 to drop below 10k(9915) for first time.
Here is the trend of severe cases 10644, 11741, 11977, 11864, 11633, 11477, 10968, 9915(yesterday).
Recoveries/Discharges are also climbing up, 2045 yesterday.
New suspected cases are also down to 3434 as of yesterday from a high of 28k.

It is encouraging that maybe one/some of these treatments
(Chloroquine, Favipiravir, Remdesivir, antibodies, plasma) *
are beginning to work.
*80 Clinical trials in progress in China. Darpa is also now in the game.
