Be great to see who germany is going to export it’s goods to if the U.K. has a hard Brexit and Italy and the rest are struggling.

Already a massive downturn in production out of Germany this last 6-9 months on cars.

Almost forgot about that gross stupidity. Surely it has to be extended, or hopefully revoked..

So no comment re the EU finance chiefs refusing to help France, Spain, Italy etc during this pandemic. As President Macron said this week, this could be the end of the EU!🙄

Politics and Britexit , plus all the other bollix can take a back seat for the time being . We've got a mini apocalypse taking place.

None of this shat will matter in a few weeks when there will be about another 19.000 deaths .

It will certainly be the cause of the number 1 spike in deaths this year globally. Which is probably why it's being treated so seriously

20 000 deaths in the UK if we get away with it.

Then if it does subside during the summer months it will all come back next Autumn, just as dramatically.

Vaccine wont be ready until the New Year. And then the logistics of mass production... enough of it to give the entire World population immunity.

Brexit and it's politics is dead.

We need to co-operate with our friends in Europe. They are all we have. European unity has never been more necessary than it it today.

If there is a fairly constant rate of deaths. Then there is a sudden upsurge in deaths. The thing that caused that upsurge will be a huge cause for concern. It may not be the biggest proportionate cause of deaths in that year but it's the biggest factor in the change of number of deaths per year. And that's massive.

Rank Cause Total deaths (in thousands) % of total
1. Ischaemic heart disease 7,208 12.6%
2. Cerebrovascular disease 5,509 9.7
3. Lower respiratory infections 3,884 6.8
4. HIV/AIDS 2,777 4.9
5. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 2,748 4.8
6. Diarrheal diseases 1,798 3.2
7. Tuberculosis 1,566 2.7
8. Malaria 1,272 2.2
9. Cancer of trachea/bronchus/lung 1,243 2.2
10. Road traffic accidents 1,192 2.1%
11. Childhood Diseases 1,124 2.0
12. Other unintentional injuries 923 1.6
13. Hypertensive heart disease 911 1.6
14. Self-inflicted 873 1.5
15. Stomach cancer 850 1.5
16. Cirrhosis of the liver 786 1.4

18. Colon/rectum cancer 622 1.1
19. Liver cancer 618 1.1
20. Measles 611 1.1

its quite sad that vaccines for measles, TB and malaria exist yet the 3rd world clearly isn't getting the same level of seriousness that we do.

makes you wonder if this new corona had never made it to the west if anyone would actually give a sh111t about it

I hope we just leave as promised on 31st December - deal or no deal

It’ll be just yet another chance to 😂 at all those remoaning snowflakes and show the arrogant EU that we’ll be held back under no circumstance 🇬🇧

Firstly are you Barry on the WUM?

If not. What is your point?

Let us all know.

I'm sure when the rest of Europe is pulling together to rebuild after the virus, buying our marmalade will be top of their priorities.

im not making little of this at all just keeping it in the context of deaths around the world.

obviously we are a long way off the peak of this but at 30k deaths we need another 580k deaths for it to make the top 20 list

not saying it won't creep onto the list but comments about this being a 'mini-apocalypse' just show the unintelligence of some people believing the media hype

9M from starvation, or around 25,000 every day. Found that out yesterday which actually shocked me.

Don't downplay this though. It's completely disrespectful to all those on the NHS frontline and will do nothing but p-ss people off.
