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

    oh come on, what if you were carrying and not knowing it?

    Why should you put the rest of us at risk just for 2 weeks stuck inside?

    At this point, I honestly don't care. The "political" response is a mess. Just met a friend walking her dogs and agreed with my ideas. We're relatively remote from contagion and we have to get on and live.

    Friends on the Wrath......COVID means I may not be around for a while

    I’m heading up COVID response at my Trust and as an anaesthetist things are going to get tough.

    It’s fair to say my colleagues and those in ITU are more than a little scared. 

    Numbers of cases are increasing hugely. 

    We are going onto a war footing. Likely 12 hrs on 12 hrs off but working around the clock when sickness bites amongst us.

    We all have the same concerns as others with families, relatives etc. I cannot see my parents for a while as are over 70 and co morbid. 

    I’m not at all convinced by the Boris approach and clinicians are ignoring certain advice and planning our own measures.

    In terms of “we will build you ventilators” I can’t think of a single British company that makes them. Also a vent needs a trained nurse or doctor to look after the patient attached to it! 

    I’m not asking for applause or slaps on the back. But maybe think of me and my colleagues occasionally over next few weeks and months and send good vibes. Awful decisions will have to be made, all colleagues will get ill, some may die. None of us signed up for this really!! 

    On your side, most of you will get mild illness. Look after yourselves and each other, keep an eye on the elderly.

    Wash hands, cough into your arm and leave me some f**king tissues and big roll!

    Take care all 

    Andy

     

    Something to remember the next time some gobsh1te goes on about media hysteria.

    Would probably suggest a UK overall rise between 400-500, which is just about in line with the rise other comparable countries had at a similar point in their outbreak. Anything less than 400 would be good.

    UK only has 5000 ventilators and no company that manufacters them

    Souce FT.com

     

    Think explains the low death toll so far.

    Shame numbers dont show "Best estimate numbers of cases not reported/recorded", then a true mortality rate could be calculated.

    The data out of Italy doesn’t support that though. Only one death under the age of 40. Infact only 2 deaths under the age of 50.

    So basically already between 1 and 2m...

    Cases will shoot up over the next couple of weeks before the lockdowns have a noticeable effect on numbers.

    Looking for a bail out? Don't they make enough profit with their ludicrous fare prices?

    Rail Operators only average about a 3% margin and those which don't run long distance are actually loss making. Rail fares are high because we fund Network Rail through the ticket price rather than taxation. 

    That said if the loss making ones do try hand back the contract it would be an excellent time to take over in advance of the coming reform which will heavily amend the franchise system anyway.

    A valid reason is health - i need ro run for my own physical/mental health and walk/run with my dog. How does that work? If necessary, I'd get a note from my doctor...

    And herein lies the reason the government is doing the right thing by not going too hard, too early. We will be lucky if people comply properly for a month, let alone anything that drags out. Monitoring the Italian quarantine lite is the correct thing to do bar banning incoming flights and Chunnel services.

    On your numbers point they may have been projecting the percentage of positive infections to cases which has risen in the last few days.

    Not that I want it to be higher but I don’t believe that can be right?

    Wales and Scotland both had large percentage increases but England hasn’t?

    But then if you don’t test those outside of hospital I guess you will get lower numbers

    This says to me that there are a good 10,000 undetected cases in the lower age cohorts. Probably need to double the number of cases at least

    I think we can see why the numbers are down, is because testing is down about 30% from yesterday, which fits in with the NHS new policy of just testing those in hospital who match the symptoms.

    What is far more worrying is the rise of deaths again, thats another fairly large leap for the 2nd day in a row.

    It'd be useful to know how many are in a critical way as well.
