I didn't say all 15 million of them were killed by it, and I'm sure a lot
drop off due to migratory workers who maybe switched coverage, but China's
society revolves around cell phones for most tasks way more than the US.
They're a mobile based society.  It's considered an essential.   If you
want to throw away that data point entirely, fine.  Focus on the urns.

Do you honestly believe the Chinese numbers on infections and deaths?  If
the answer is yes, I'm not sure we have anything more to talk about here,
but I'm surprised if you're willing to take that on faith, you also haven't
converted to Christianity and taken Pascal's wager.
