    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

    An appeal to people to remember you are reading posts from people you do not know, you do not know the background of and do not know their motivations - on a weather forum.  If there are concerns

    As much as that's an unhappy statistic, the article also says:

    "The specialist explains that it also regularly occurs with regular flu that younger people end up in intensive care. "You can see that with the flu: those people get serious double-sided pneumonia." In addition, the elderly also choose not to be treated in intensive care."

    And another snippet which I haven't heard much about:

    "The average age of all covid-19 ic patients in Lombardy, Italy, was 70 years, according to which 'the main risk factor for ic uptake is obesity'."

    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? 

    No, probs because (from my experience of working in Netherlands 80’s to 2000’s), the young smoked more than  a fleet full of Manx kippers,  so check the lungs,...,

    No I think its the same in Italy, they are having to chose who to treat,hence the older dying.

    It'd be interesting to find out how many of those (and those without 'underlying' conditions) are smokeing cigs/weed/vape etc

    Personally I'd assume vaping would make something like this worse, as your literally inhaling water into your lungs which are already having problems with fluid retention....

    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.

    80% is probably their top end figure based on what Prof Whitty said the other day.

    18 months would be about right, and that is at an average of 100,000 new cases a day!

    That would be a hospitalisation rate of 15% of those infected. 

    Now, if you strip out the under 30's (about 30% of the population) and over 70's (10%) cos they are all isolated, then you are looking at  8 million of the remaining 30-70 y.o's being hospitialised, assuming an 80% infection rate, that is 1 in 4 people!  If i was a 40 year old school teacher, bus driver etc, i'd not be overly impressed about that!  Now it will not cut as cleanly as that, we have to assume the over 50's are going to be hit badly.

    5000 ventilators?

    It’s likely to be some computer modeling like the French report which shocked me . And has likely laid out the worst case scenario .

    I’ve decided to just see what transpires because a lot can happen re anti virals , vaccines etc .

    Just as we’ve been shocked by the spread we might get another more positive shock over the coming months .

    Things are very bleak now but we mustn’t give up hope that we might turn the corner sooner.

    Nothing sells like bad news after all!

    Still, it is sobering that we could be looking at hundreds of thousands of deaths by next year. That's basically Spanish influenza / Ww2 level fatalitiesnfor this country.

    First of all, leaks are not always 100% accurate, secondly, I'm pretty sure that whoever leaked this went with a worse case scenario doc, so if it is accurate, it may not be what happens, there will be many docs around giving different turn outs for different tactics.

    Yep, my depression is mounting up and I feel like I'm one step from a panic attack. Full quarantine from tomorrow here, no going out allowed unless you are going to work or shop so I won't be able to go for a run to clear my head. Damn, crazy times we live in.

    When so many are very worried seems the media doesn’t know the benefit of good news.  Mind you there are plenty on here who seem only too keen to post the worse case scenario news.

    You know I’m hardly known for my optimism but there are scientists working on a vaccine , we should have some anti virals in use more widely in the next month and the summer should help so although things look bleak at the moment I’m not willing to accept that figure or timeline .

    I was pretty shocked by that French report but this isn’t 1918 and we’re not living in caves .

    What did the report say?
