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

    Apologies for what is mere speculation on my part but I thought part of the reason was the figures for the deaths was only for those who had died from the virus without other underlying health conditions?

    It is quite simple in my opinion, the question that has to be asked is, would this person have died within that space of time without contracting the virus, if the answer is no then the cause of death is coronavirus - any other way is just misleading and any figures derived any other way should be ignored.

    Surprised everyone?

    Central/NW seems to be worst affected at the moment. The areas don't really correlate to higher population or higher population density, so other factors playing a role here.

    Lots of talk on the news about the modelling (ICL) saying it changes, even on a daily basis because more information is coming in all the time, I understand that, what I don't understand is that some people were posting in here saying that their schools would be closing this Friday TWO WEEKS AGO. Heard the same thing elsewhere too, all with exactly the same date!

    Our implementation is not strong enough yet.

    London needs a lockdown this week.

    The Friday date may well have come from a union leak. A date looks likely to have been discussed and agreed on beforehand, but kept schtum (though as you say there have been rumours for a while now).

    Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville is to open his hotels free of charge to health workers to help with the coronavirus crisis.

     

    If he had been the first person from the sporting world to do it maybe, he like most are just joining in now that others are doing it...

    A growing number of rumours spreading now that London is heading for a lockdown, no doubt enhancing panic buying across the capital. 

    Given all of the past measures were leaked to the media prior to being officially announced, then this London lockdown story is probably true.

    London is braced for lockdown as the Government prepares emergency legislation to prevent the spread of coronavirus, The Telegraph understands.

    I dont know what truth there is to this, but my mate is quite high up in the Army and they have been ordered to cancel all exercises and return to the barracks for further order.

    And at the same time I heard Boris will address the nation tomorrow and tell the UK he is putting us on full lockdown for 15 days, with the army being deployed to protect from looters.

    Could be BS, could be true, but most of my Army friends are on their way back.

    Operation Broadshare.  Essential services only, and must have a reason to be travelling or doing something.   Speaking to a few in the know.

    1.  
    2. Southwark - 70
    3.  

    Does make you worry, but then having lived in Southwark all my life - the people here are disgusting.   Spitting on floors (yesterday), coughing without a care in the world and not covering mouths and people sneezing without doing it correctly as advised.   I just am not surprised.

    Not really, when I think about it - for example the UK was very pro-active in testing people as soon as there were hints that it was reaching this country, and the government has used evidence-based strategies which have involved progressively ramping up the restrictions, and has been willing to change its mind when presented with growing evidence that its original "mitigation" strategies were likely to result in too many deaths and cases with serious complications, rather than doing very little and then suddenly bringing in a lot of restrictions in a knee-jerk type of response.  It may not have always made the right decisions at the right times, but I have been impressed by the general approach.

    Some experts are predicting Italy to peak between the 23rd and 25th. They suggest numbers will begin to stabilise between March 25th and April 15th.

    Italy's full lockdown is due to end on the 25th though you would expect that to be extended by at least another week.

    Is Italy peaking yet? Experts urge patience

    Thank you, and thank you to everyone else for the support and kind words. I consider all of you good friends. I am upset I have it, but was largely inevitable, and I'll come through it just fine I am sure.

    Take care guys, will send you an update when I've rested a little

     

    Hi matty I have just come out of self isolation after possibly having the virus. It was scary to start (that cough was so annoying) but you will soon overcome it pretty quickly. All I advise now is to rest, play games, watch movies and read books etc in self isolation. Keep well hydrated, take some paracetamol and you will come out of this no problem. My attitude was let's get this over with. I now feel great again. Hang in there mate everything's going to be fine as long as you take your precautions and keep away from other people. Once you recover have a good clean out of the room you isolated in. Bedding washed immediately etc to get rid of any traces of the bug.

    School closure wise, as far as I understand it, schools were told to get ready for this Friday a week or so ago, but it wasnt a definite date. Seeing as the rough plan was always Friday a week or so ago, and this is almost the exact point when schools would have to close anyway due to staffing etc, then you could say their "modelling" was bang on. Could just be a fluke though.

    I think certainly we have been quicker with some of the restrictive measures, I think we have been slower with shutting schools, but that was always lower down on our priority list. 

    We will see the proof such of a claim a week or two down the line. 

    The one thing I will say is deaths wise, we seem to be tracking very close to Spain/Italy at the moment, which is deeply worrying.

    Not at all surprised. I have had to catch myself thinking weeks and weeks have passed in this crazy situation when it's only been days, but in general I've had a good idea when we've implemented things like money to support businesses and social isolation relative to other countries. We have done these things later than most other European countries because they are already further into their epidemics, but relatively we have done them earlier.
