Why would this be any different in Germany than in NYC. Also, ďsomeĒ and ďlimitedĒ are very vague terms, why not publish the numbers in the headline and let the reader decide how significant it is?
Because once he does that suddenly the entire Twitter and ddf will be experts on both statistics and virology.

I think itís the other way around, the numbers are probably really low and itís fake news to consider them significant in the scheme of things. Itís just one more variable in an endless list.

I thought you were implying that the numbers in German-language article would give hope to all the armchair epidemiologists.

I did. It would give hope to them all no matter how miniscule the numbers are. Let's reopen all shuls since 1 in 100000000000000000 have some level of immunity from previous viruses.

Faster recoveries are nice, but can it bring people back from the brink RĒL?
Antiviral drugs generally work better when given earlier in the infection, so this coupled with better testing could lead to better outcomes i.e. ensure that people don't get to the brink.

Even if not, it can stop people from getting to the brink as well as ease the burden on the healthcare system.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Your answer, even if it canít, it can stop people from getting to the brink.

That makes no sense.

Maybe you misspoke, but you asked "can it bring people back from the brink"
