  3. There seems to be a lot of wishful thinking going on around this. It seems about 50% of the population are trying to convince themselves that they already 'had it around Christmas'.

  4. The situation is complicated to say the least. There are going to be many more cases than the official figure because testing has been restricted to the hospitalised cases for the past week or so. What we don’t know is whether 5% or 20% of cases are being hospitalised. If it’s the former then the likelihood is that there are a lot of people with relatively mild or no symptoms with the virus (Prince Charles) but if it’s the latter then the NHS will be overwhelmed very quickly. There are definitely more patients with respiratory problems being admitted to intensive care than usual, so if anyone

  7. I have to say, until scientists have been able to do more analysis, we don't know who or what caused the virus. We may never know. The causes of many great pandemics, including "Spanish flu", are just conjecture. The dominant theory is that it began in Wuhan in November/December and may have some connection to the city's "wet market" and either bats or pangolins. But there are problems with this: the form of bat coronavirus found in the kind of bats eaten in central China is only 96% a DNA match with Covid-19. That isn't normally close enough for a mutated virus to "jump species". As

  8. He may be right; at present it's all speculation followed by assertion in the absence of decent data. Actual cases and deaths at this stage are a tiny fraction of a normal winter's flu and the scary looking curves if plotted against that would be barely discernible. The first point at which we get some decent data is with the roll out of the 2.5 million antibody testing kit to see how many in the wider population have had it. There are claims that it has been around for over a year before it was identified; they may be wrong but this will be the first time those claims are tested.

Anyone who runs out of wool should message Delia who will leave fresh supplies in a vacuum sealed sandwich bag on your doorstep.

  19. This virus is not doing my health anxiety any good at all - I thought after my CBT finished I'd finally got a handle on it, but this is ramping it right up to the top of the scale again. Not helped by all the theories either (although I must say a couple of them I read today made me spit the cornflakes out - its apparently been caused by either 5G or a plague missile from North Korea, there are some right crackpots on social media and no mistake)

  20. Most people who die from this disease do so at least 10 days - 2 weeks after they start showing symptoms. Yesterday showed the largest number of new cases in a day, which is concerning. Even if we’re only currently testing people who are so sick they're in hospital, that still suggests that the death rate will go up over the next 7 days. Obviously we all hope for a quick drop in cases and deaths but it’s worth remaining realistic about where we are in this Pandemic.

  21. This is a great post, the only thing I’d ask anyone in healthcare who posts on here would be, how does the number of admissions to Hospital since January for Pneumonia compare to a Winter/Spring period from every other year? My suspicion, judging from what doctors themselves are saying, is that it’s much higher than usual which would suggest (maybe) that this has not been doing the rounds for that long and consequently the number of people who already have immunity is not that great at all.

  29. As a species we are constantly asking for novel viral trouble really, be that by mixing and butchering all these disparate species in one unsanitary place, or pumping pigs full of antibiotics in massive sheds in Mexico. And it's not just the Chinese that have wet markets tbf, you see similar in Indonesia and all over Asia- and are they any less dangerous than what the US does on an industrial scale to livestock and the subsequent loss of human medical protection? Let's hope attitudes change after this.

  30. Cant see why anyone still thinks a few games of football is still important to be honest.... All things considered does football even f'ing matter right now? Lets have a sense of perspective eh? Hundreds of people are dying that will soon be thousands and possibly tens of thousands before long...

  31. The season should restart when the worst of the pandemic is over and its safe to do so, not during it. Without playoffs it can be done in around four weeks. I agree, its irrelevant at this time.

  32. You're missing the third, far more likely possibility; that it wasn't Covid-19 at all Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you didn't have some horrible virus you may not have had before, but as @Kid in the Riot said a couple of pages back, you would have been tested in hospital and a novel Coronavirus would have been easily identified at the time, and gained worldwide attention. If it's been running wild in the UK for 4 months, why have thousands of people not succumbed to serious lung disease or died here already, given the pace we're watching both rise at now?

  33. What a rather impertinent question. As far as I am concerned China is on this map of the world of ours simply to be punished. There should be absolutely no questioning of this exercise. It should be carried out with precision and decisiveness leaving the rest of us more healthy and happy.

  35. They all started in China. Lifestyle and laws could be amended to ensure cross over of diseases from animals to humans is minimalised; there is little to no evidence this has been enacted by Chinese authorities. Does this adequately explain?

  36. Agreed but I don't think it's helping to group people into "doom mongers" and "selfish idiots" because it reads like a Lee Johnson thread with happy clappers and LJ haters. As per posts above: we don't know, nobody knows. People are entitled to speculate and analyse the data, as that's what the experts are doing, but the current light lockdown is designed to head off an imminent spike in cases for the NHS to deal with so I think makes sense either way for now. When the data from the testing is in then some hard decisions will have to be made because the effect in the round has to be

  37. I think, in response to a few earlier posts; the number shown as infected will increase sharply for the foreseeable. Two reasons for this: Firstly; More people are getting it, we all know infection rate hasn't peaked yet.......BUT.....the sooner people take isolation seriously, the SOONER infection rates WILL PLATEAU. Secondly; the Govt are ramping up testing, ALOT more people will be tested from here on in. Hopefully the retrospective tests that are soon to be rolled out will show more people have had the virus than currently estimated, though this is not probably too likely in real
