Unreal I worry about the figures in the UK. You lads have nearly as many deaths as we have cases.

Spain/Italy figures are possible although I really hope not.

Its horrible but the peak is not expected for about 2 weeks, so it will only increase in the days leading up to that.

Hope everyone stays safe on here.

It's no doubt emotionally for many people seeing something increase for several weeks despite the measures and sacrifices currently being taken. I just hope post peak, we shed new cases and deaths much quicker than Italy, to give our front-line staff respite.

*emotionally tough.

I agree Admin.

Its difficult being in the dark. We do not really know how effective this social distancing has been, and I don't know how much of an effect it will have on ensuring there is a steady drop is cases once we have got past the next couple of weeks - which will be horrendous in all honesty.

Was just in town and there’s people literally sitting next to each other on benches having a chit chat, and literally 3 officers on bikes behind them doing absolute sod all. We aren’t in a lockdown, this is Just a joke to people.

It is perfectly legal for two people from the same household to sit next to each other. So, it really depends on the context.

Also, the police are clearly being told to use discretion, after being so heavy-handed last week.

It cant not have a massive impact, Italy has me perplexed, i think the issue may be when we are near or at peak a certain higher percent of general population who are asymptomatic they are spreading it as careful as they trying to be and holding the peak numbers higher for longer.

Italy raises a lot of questions.

How many people are they testing?
Are they including people who died with the coronavirus, people who died from the coronavirus?
Northern Italy is one of the most polluted regions in Europe - so has this led to long-term respiratory issues?
Has the age of the population affected the mortality rates?

According to ONS 23% of corona deaths are missing from the statistics, they only record figures for deaths inside hospitals, and not nursing homes, care homes etc.

They reckon it is working to a degree over here and allowing us to flatten the curve as it is put

Need to see figures showing deaths directly from the virus and deaths with the virus.

We are tracking them, or if the ONS is to be believed.. Worse than them, if even historic smoking increases the likelihood to suffer from it, i imagine pollution will have its part,

But what level of pollution relative to ours are we talking?

No Frosties left.
Told daughter cornflakes with a bit of sugar sprinkled on would be just the same. Breakfast this morning:
Her “Urgh this is disgusting”
Me (furious) launched into the “You’re lucky to have anything at all” speech.
Turns out I’d used self raising flour.

Does it matter? Its impossible to tell between the two, at best the Corona will have expedited their sad demise.

My wife is a social care worker in the school for the blind in Dublin and one of the students is from 30 miles from the epicenter in North Italy (Obviously the student has been over there since before the crisis ensued)

The students father was saying that that the death rate is only those cases that are dying in hospitals and not nursing homes or their own homes

Good points. Unfortunately until there is widespread testing, the ability of the relevant authorities to make accurate forecasts is extremely limited.
