As I told a client once, after dealing with a support case, "there's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people who ask them."

I always used to say to my staff :

There are no stupid questions. Just inquisitive idiots.

There death figures don’t include Post Mortem results. 
If they say your in for a heart problem and die they don’t check for Covid 19.

Other countries do test, which is why figures around the world are so confusing/don’t make sense.

I wonder when or if,  they will start including deaths indirectly caused by the virus. People are still having heart attacks, strokes and serious car accidents etc, and if the resources arent available to save them, when they otherwise probably would be, thats a CV related death surely.

Following brexit me and Mrs F refuse to go to Spoons.....I hope a lot more people do the same now.

A bit petty in my opinion, just because you didn't get your way in the vote, I like to think if the vote had gone the other way I would not have been so childish. I admit the bloke can be a bit abrasive but to refuse to use a pub just because his political opinion is different to yours is a bit daft, you would have to boycott half the businesses in the country if that was the case.

Read the effin post properly, he said he boycotted spoons because of Brexit not for what he has recently done that's what it's got to do with Brexit he had already boycotted the place before this, if you had read what he said you would have realised that.

What pub did you run, I was a publican for 10 years and the bloke is a tw*t, dont accuse me of calling pot and kettle, you come across as an aggressive poster who always wants his own way

I didn't say the bloke wasn't a **** just that to boycott a place because the owner supported Brexit is childish. I can see why with the way he is treating staff someone might not want to patronise the place but not just because he supported leaving the EU that was my point which you seem to have overlooked.

UK fatalities up 87 to 422 today.

Big jump and very sad but not as bad as I thought it might be given the trajectory of other countries.

Considering we are supposed to be following Italy just 14 days behind this would suggest we are not, thank god.

If you do not have an account with the Spectator that link will only let you read so far I believe which is why I copied a lot of it verbatum and just added my thoughts at the end. I should have added the source.

It will tell when the cases over flow the NHS bed capacity. 

What I can't understand is in my experience with my wife and father in law is that even before this outbreak there didn't seem to be enough beds already so we are in trouble from day one.

I don’t think I have this wrong.

Italy were on 463, 14 days in front.

Unfortunately we’re not that far behind.

Very true butfortunately we have a different demographic to Italy.

When did Italy bring in their lockdown - I understand that they did it twice as the first time it didn't work ?

Hopefully we don't go down the same route.

Didn`t they try and lock down one region (Lombardy?) but news got out and thousands legged it to other parts of the country? Mind you, it seems so long ago now that I could be mistaken.

Out of interest I just had a quick look at the death rate per day in the UK, for the last 100 years it's averaged 1450 per day, I wonder how significant this figure is in the overall picture. (obviously significant for those that died), but in a statistical view, could this just be a blip in years to come?
