Italian ICU managers/doctors -

Concerning news -- Italian doctors write "We have seen a very high number of ICU admissions [10% of all positive patients], almost entirely due to severe hypoxic respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation."

More encouraging news from South Korea -

With 140,000 people tested, the country’s mortality rate is just over 0.6 per cent compared to the 3.4 per cent global average reported by the WHO.

That's just because they've tested everybody.

Dayraven - 06 Mar 2020 12:47:19 (#4 of 3032)

Their testing regime sounds extensive compared to other countries, but that's still only about 1 in 350.

In principle, the more tests carried out, the more accurate a picture you have of the impact. And 0.65% would be a lot better than >3%.

I'm not sure food supply to supermarkets is the biggest issue, it's getting hold of it in cases of isolation.

Bonusy - 06 Mar 2020 14:22:07 (#8 of 3032)

That's what the subject was

UK supermarkets have rejected claims from Health Secretary Matt Hancock that they have had discussions with the government about getting food to people who have been forced to self-isolate

Bonusy - 06 Mar 2020 14:23:18 (#9 of 3032)

"We are using processes and staffing levels we set up in case of a no-deal Brexit." The executive added: "While I think people don't need to panic buy and should just shop normally, I'm not sure the government can guarantee all food supply in all instances."

No-deal Brexit, bit like a pandemic

Matt Hancock lying about supermarket plans


To think I almost felt sorry for him when he was on Today earlier this week

Governments will not be able to minimise both deaths from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the economic impact of viral spread.

What with this, Brexit and a potential financial crash, we're lucky to have a PM noted for his work ethic, attention to detail and moral rectitude.

misosoup100 - 07 Mar 2020 12:57:56 (#13 of 3032)

and maybe a weak immune system.

RosyLovelady - 07 Mar 2020 13:14:35 (#14 of 3032)

Guffaw. Let's hope.

tasselhoff - 07 Mar 2020 13:21:03 (#15 of 3032)

He's got the constitution of an ox

RosyLovelady - 07 Mar 2020 13:43:40 (#16 of 3032)

No bollocks.

Bonusy - 07 Mar 2020 14:45:57 (#17 of 3032)

Sadly, the evidence says otherwise

Why does everyone seems to think that all they'll be doing is going for a shit?
