A friend's brother went to Cheltenham and is just emerging from the worst of the virus after 16 extremely unpleasant days. Absolute madness that it went ahead when we all knew what it would mean by then.

This might be BBC propaganda but is quite reassuring, probably worth a read.

 

BBC News - Coronavirus: How to understand the death toll
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51979654

 

 

It’s correct on the way that it’s difficult to judge in a lot of circumstances if a death is caused by corona or not. As long as you are not in a hospital and receiving live saving treatment that are not successful it’s quite difficult to establish the cause of death. In many cases it would need intensive post mortems which are quite often not done. Just testing dead bodies if they were infected won’t give you the full picture.

After this is over there needs to be a full inquest into this. Cheltenham, Liverpool game, and the Friday night pubs. People should be prosecuted, including the PM, possibly. 

Absolutley there needs to be a public enquiry into this.

Whatever goodwill there was for the government at the start of all this has now gone for me. These daily press conferences are a total waste of time where you've got no mark ministers avoiding questions, and a format that allows zero follow up.

 

How long are they going to keep referring to testing "capacity" as if that's the target when they are falling to test to that capacity day after day. It's fucking infuriating.

I don't think the numbers looked wonky the other day, they were just always gonna skyrocket this week and next. We are only 8 days into the lockdown, there are still people that caught this pre lockdown, that are gonna die, that aren't even feeling ill yet. 


The people dying have had COVID for 3-4 weeks. We won’t see the benefit of the lockdown on death rates for at least another fortnight

Little bit of goods news lads regarding the son in laws ex. Apparently she responded well to dialysis this afternoon. Her body oxygen levels are back up to 65% whatever that means. She's still in a medical induced coma but hopefully there's a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.

That herd immunity, take it on the chin crap was treason. They will get away with it though, obviously.

Tweet isn’t embedding for some reason. Anyway, this latest chart from the FT is troubling. US and UK look set to become new epicentre. So much for flattening the curve

Yeah, looking at 4 figure daily death rate very soon. We had the lessson of Italy, did fuck all. How political choices have direct consequences on life. Tragic.

We’re going to need a hell of an enquiry when this has all settled.

 

An enquiry which will take years, become hugely politicised, and the outcome of which no one will take any notice of anyway, having decided to tar it with their own political bias without needing to engage with the material.

Pastor still holding mass gatherings in Louisiana. America has no hope of holding to its already massive death targets. This bloke reckons he had 1000 in his church at the weekend ffs. 

God will welcome them with open arms - and she can have them
