It's not necessarily the number of infections. It's the lack of hospital beds. Once they are full with people with the virus then how is eneryone else looked after who needs urgent care.

NHS was struggling before this. Fcuk knows how they are coping at present.
True, maybe the government might finally realise the lack of the nhs!

They have mate, that's why they want us all isolating at home to save extra pressure on the NHS... but some people still don't get it!

Heard one of the local beaches near me was packed again earlier today, even after yesterday's lock down news :angry:

UK is 2 weeks behind Italy.

The number of infections has been doubling every 7 days. So, if that carries on. the majority of the world will have been infected in 13 weeks time. So, beginning of July we will see way more deaths than we have now.

On top of that, the virus hasn't hit the Third world countries properly, so I expect the death rate to be way more than 3%.

I could be wrong and hope I am. We'lll see.

I have a few friends who work at the local hospital and they're telling me that they don't recognise the figures at all and that they are overwhelmed with cases and don't have access to sufficient PPE (porters having to move infected patients just with a paper mask!). A number of staff are now infected. For those that are dying, they die alone and in a very upsetting way. Closed gyms is a very minor sacrifice to make if it helps get on top of this.

Same NHS the conversatives have been gradually dismantling over the last decade despite now getting the citizens of this country to run off patriotic rherotic and emotional impulses to help 'save the NHS'. Just like they did with the Leave EU campaign. It's not the British public who keep cutting the NHS down. It's not the British people that want the NHS to be like this. It's the very government that is now reckoning to be behind it's stability. They've been showing the NHS to American healthcare empires for a few years now. I think they've actually got a contract with American healthcare/pharma to sell anonymized British medical data in the millions in terms of patient data. It's been known for a while, even within the NHS, that the conversatives are slowly crashing the healthcare system in order to bring in private healthcare like in the US. They are slowly selling their stake in it to private companies abroad.

This puts so much into perspective, us humans get blamed for everything when its all down to the s**t government! then when something major happens (like corona) they make out they are saving the world with there bullshit requirements.

i would say more but i will neck it in now before i end up on bbc news for trying to cause something

Anyone know how Germany's kept the deaths so low despite the number of cases?
You only go on the stats if your officially tested. Germany has probably just tested more people.

We likely have many more cases (doctors estimate 10x the official number) they just haven't been officially diagnosed with a test.

Testing also lag time of deaths behind cases( takes people a long time to die)
And them stats are just for whos been tested! The fact is the main treatment atm for corona is to stay at home (without testing) so you never know them figures could be in millions

But they have the same number of cases with less deaths. If anything, testing more people would put their death figures up.

No. What he is saying is they have identified more people who get infected. Other Country's could have a lot more infected but simply not identified as being infected.

Testing more people doesn't increase the death rate.
