    I'm genuinely appalled that anyone who can tie their own shoelaces can be so wilfully blind to the best available evidence

    Vallance wants testing ramped up. The WHO wants testing ramped up. We have screwed up hugely on testing and as a result have to work from the best scientific estimate available which is 55,000 actual cases.

    Attitudes like yours make the case for aggressive imposed and enforced restrictions in movement and civil liberties
    As I said, letís wait and see. I suspect the rate of growth will reduce over the next few weeks, then Boris will claim credit, but warn that growth was damaged by CV not brexit.

    Here are some sobering numbers:

    COVID-19 Infectio fatality ratio (IFR) - 0.9%
    4.4% of infections are hospitalised
    30% of those hospitalised will require critical care
    50% of those in critical care will die
    Estimated R0 (number of cases each one infected person will pass the virus to) is 2.4
    Without all the isolation measures (and much more) 81% of the GB population will be infected during the epidemic.
    Equivelant to approximately extra 510.000 death in the UK and 2.2 million death in the US.

    Quote: "For an uncontrolled epidemic, we predict critical care bed capacity would be exceeded as early as the second week in April, with an eventual peak in ICU or critical care bed demand that is over 30 times greater than the maximum supply in both countries ".

    Let's stop worrying about the ecomonical impact for this year.

    Here is the actual science from actual experts

    https://www.imperial.ac.uk/media/imp...16-03-2020.pdf

    This is the report the government u turn is based on

    The 'wait and see' approach would have resulted in literally millions of deaths (the 250k figure assumed all were treated but the NHS would have been overwhelmed 8 times over so the figure would have been millions)

    I'm really quite angry at your pathetic indifference

    Can’t see it :-)

    Worked out how to use the Ignore List function

    Much better

    For anyone not terminally (possibly quite literally) stupid who is interested that Imperial report is pretty sobering but worth a look to understand the competing pretty awful choices

    Excellent, best get yourself back under the covers until the panic subsides.
