    The coronavirus epidemic in the UK will last until next spring and could lead to 7.9m people being hospitalised - Public Health England briefing for senior NHS officials obtained by Guardian.

    It suggests as many as 80% of Britons becoming infected with the virus over that time.

    Exclusive: Public Health England document seen by Guardian says four in five ‘expected’ to contract virus

    This is a situation being allowed to happen. We are all part of an experiment. The choices being made at the top make no sense, to me at least. Half a million dead!?!? Are we, the British public, just going to go along with being thrown under this bus???

    I wonder how significant this could be in the short term. Potentially a significant breakthrough if it works Coronavirus: New treatment for critically ill patients to begin as soon as next week

    worst case scenario though mate, fingers crossed it never gets that bad

    Lots of vaccines are in testing.

    One done in London has worked really well in mice and has now moved to monkeys in France if that stage goes well we could be looking at it going to human trials within a month in the UK.

    Considering there is a virus attacking the lungs going around, the amount of cigarettes I'm still selling at work is staggering...well to me it is anyway. I gave up about 3 weeks ago for the very reason that I could see what was coming!

    I smoke about six rollies per day ?

    Just to give a sense of how bad things are in Italy, the number of infected people per million is 439 which is 8 times of that in China where the coronavirus actually started.

    And what's worse, the mortality rate among infected people is nearly twice too.

    If the herd immunity is to happen in the UK, we'll need to get more than 1000 times this proportion of people to be infected. That's the reality. 

    Just praying the death toll is being bumped up by a mass of people who have the virus but have not been tested.

    I always assumed it's a winter virus, and hoping it will quickly die off in summer, even more reason now to start looking for proper warmth on the models, they need to work on a cure by next winter, think everyone knows it's coming back in November

    Keep calm, that's based on the very worst scenario.

    Friends are currently on their way back from Vietnam.  Tracking them on a flight app.  Currently over northern India on their way to Heathrow. Got nearly 11 hours to go.  They have to wear a mask all the way.  Once back in UK they will be self isolating.

    Thing is, people are getting carried away with Chinese stats. China stopped including positive results with no real symptoms, so the Chinese overall data isnt that accurate. No country's data are accurate enough to compare figures like that at this early stage.

    Evidence from SE Asia today suggests it can still spread around in very humid and hot conditions. Malaysia has had 280 cases today, most from a religious gathering that has been community spread.

    Beginnings of clustering in Hampshire?

    I'm wondering where. This doesn't include the big cities of Southampton and Portsmouth, which doesn't leave many other built up areas.

    Hmmm so looks like the young are also getting hard by it, but they have a high level of survival compared to older people. France has reported something similar if my memory is right.

    May have to rethink our strategy if this carries on being a trend because NHS still will get overwhelmed in such a scenario.

    Serbia has just shut down all schools, universities and other gatherings - with only 48 cases!

    Meanwhile the UK is out here with thousands and we only learned to wash our hands to Happy Birthday?

    Hmmm... Like France. A different story from Italy. Don't want to create more fear mongering, but does anyone think there is a different strain in these countries to Italy that is dangerous to younger people?

    The media really doesn’t like good news.  What about all those who have had it and recovered such as David and Sally Able.  Obviously nothing worse than a good news story in their books. Ok this all awful but have some perspective please.

    This suggests this won't ease over summer.

    7.9 million will not be hospitalized... because there isn't enough space for 7.9 million in hospital. I'd have been surprised if 1 million could be accommodated. It's not as if other things like heart attacks are going to stop happening!
