Looking at that remarkable curve for Hubei (China) in post #101 above, I think we should note that even inside China doubts have been publicly expressed about the official figures. Today's UK Sunday Times (sorry, paywalled), page 19, reports that
[Mod add]According to Beijing, 2,535 people died in the central Chinese city [Wuhan] from the virus. But a picture published by Caixin, an independent news website, showed 3,500 urns stacked in just one of Wuhan's eight funeral homes, although it was unclear how many contained ashes. [Also, I note, unclear how many of the dead had died from causes other than COVID-19.] Caixin reported that 5,000 urns had been delivered to the establishment on Wednesday and Thursday.
