This site has info on the schedule of the bill's progress over time: https://www.aok-bv.de/hintergrund/gesetze/index_22091.html. For non-German readers, the general idea is that the bill has been passed to the Bundestag, and is scheduled for the first reading on 18 October. Then there's a public hearing on 23 Oct, where there is discussion by experts/stakeholders. Then there will be a second reading/debate on 14 November, and the final reading and the vote on 15 November. There are other steps after that before it comes into effect, but the 15 Nov vote l...

"Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, took another step on its lengthy path to a stock market listing on Saturday, saying that it would announce a final price for its shares on Dec. 5, with trading expected to start in mid-December."

Do the resolution criteria match the title?

A comparison of the current coronavirus with SARS and MERS. For reference, there were ~8000 cases of SARS during its peak (late 2002-2003), and about ~2500 cases of MERS. The identification of the current virus and public health responses have been substantially faster than with SARS, and based on early data it seems less virulent https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/202…

@darkives Based on this, it looks like the Bundesrat discussed the bill, gave their comments/amendements, and then forwarded to the Bundestag on Sept 20. It hasn't yet been discussed or passed by the Bundestag. As a caveat I'm an expat in Germany, so my knowledge of both German and the legal process are a little patchy.

A small clinical trial using rapid induced hypothermia for emergency trauma patients is ongoing, full results expected by the end of 2020: https://www.cnet.com/news/suspended-animation…

Is it specified what source(s) will be used to determine the resolution?

A Phase 2 clinical trial on psilocybin for major depressive disorder recently started, but results are not anticipated until 2021. This is for MDD in general rather than end of life depression/anxiety, would FDA approval for this be counted as positive resolution? https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03866174

To clarify: will this be resolved positive if the epidemic ends, or if it does not end? The question is posted as "Will the current DRC Ebola outbreak end by February 2020", but the text below poses the opposite question: "Will the outbreak still be ongoing by the 29th of February 2020?" and the current resolution conditions seem to match that.

Their second pilot system was put out earlier this year. Their timeline indicates that the first second-generation plastic-catcher will be deployed in early 2020. https://theoceancleanup.com/updates/the-ocean…

@gjm I don't know if this is relevant, but if it's approved for MDD, it would probably be available (though not covered by insurance) via off-label prescription

"President Donald Trump is preparing to cancel tariffs scheduled to take effect Sunday on $160 billion worth of Chinese goods and roll back existing duties on billions of dollars of other imports as officials said the two countries are moving closer to a “Phase One” trade deal."

Strains of drug-resistant malaria are spreading in southeast asia, and there are concerns that, like previous malaria drug resistance, it may spread globally from there. https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/201…

Outbreak not quite over - one new measles case recently reported in Georgia - but it looks mostly under control: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-measle…

@AABoyles Wouldn't those scenarios count as "human interference"? The question says to assume humans don't intervene.
