Still - you have 70 million people.Well, if you turn on the TV, you get a lecture from the govt about staying indoors every ad break!
1408 deaths up to today in the UK.
Do they have figures for people who died around now every year ? From flu, old age, pneumonia ? What is the difference I mean - is it a lot higher ?That 1408 deaths yesterday: it's now 1789 today.
And, by the way, that's just people dying in hospital. It doesn't include people dying at home.
I fully appreciate that - but have they identified rates of death compared to the usual ? Often we only see stats that show figures that are hard to break down.THIS IS NOTHING LIKE FLU OR 'OLD 'AGE'! WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WAKE UP TO THAT??
Australia has had, what, 20 or so deaths so far.There were 563 in the UK yesterday. And there will be more tomorrow. If you were in the UK, would you take it seriously? How long to do you think it will be before Australia has hundreds of deaths a day?
Good points SJ. If we're doing so bad here - in handling it - why aren't we as bad as there ? It is hard to work out.I fully appreciate that - but have they identified rates of death compared to the usual ? Often we only see stats that show figures that are hard to break down.
I'd like % of people tested that then are shown to have it - vis a vis population. Then deaths also done this way - but include the "normal" annual deaths at this time of the year - by age group etc. It seems we are not being given the full picture.
You have had "563" deaths from 60 million people. So far we've had "20" from 26 million. WHY ? Is it "separation" policy ? Is it the fact we are not connected by land to anywhere else ? Is it because we stopped "inflow" quickly ? Is it because we are warm at the moment and you are cold ?
It is a very bad situation but the media IS using it and doing their best to create panic.
I believe numbers are always up at this time. I'm trying to find our who died and why. A number of ours have been quite old AND suffering from other things - eg cancer, etc. This must come into the equation.
We fully understand the magnitude of the problem.
Looking at a map - if you draw a line across the globe - the north seems worse than the south. WHY ?Good points SJ. If we're doing so bad here - in handling it - why aren't we as bad as there ? It is hard to work out.
