Someone at Mrs.F’s work emailed their top boss today, saying that because our daughter is coming back from Italy, the Mrs. and her work mates should be “quarantined”.

This thing is probably going to kill in the hundreds of thousands in the UK alone. Our best chance would probably to delay it until the weather warms, but I suspect we've ran out of time.

The government are point blank refusing to crash the economy to save lives. It’s not a surprise. One of the surgeries I look after closed today after a suspected outbreak..

It’s unlikely to be really affected by warmer weather.

Johnson should be careful about his wishes. It could really decimate the numbers of his dement voters...

All of Italy will be placed under the lockdown conditions thus far imposed upon the so-called “red zone” in the north of the country, the Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte has said.

The restrictions will include banning all public gatherings and preventing all movement other than for work and emergencies.

100,000 is the base case. For perspective flu kills up to 20,000 annually, the Spanish flu of 1918 killed 200,000 in the UK. That was particularly bad though because the young were disproportionately affected. A proper kick in the nuts after WW1. 

 

The numbers are tricky because the denominator isn't really known  - people unknowingly with the infection but not tested. I reckon there may already be thousands of these,  so there could be an explosion of cases soon.
