worrying looking at our trajectory, running at approx 10% death rate, deaths surpassed both China and Irans official figures and looking very much similar to Italy and Spain in our path.

Tell you what Mal they deserve a medal the NHS teams. Least we have something to be proud about during all this crap

I watched with interest the news last night, most are doing 12 plus hour shifts and 60 hours a week, couple this with all the PPE they are having to wear and dealing with all the dick heads, amongst the good people, they deal with and putting their lives on the line, some people can do remarkable things really

A sad story that I read, a doctor who had done 40 years service and was happily retired was called up and asked to support, he caught the virus and passed away sadly, how bad is that, god rest his soul

I think thatís half the problem mate, the herd mentality, some people just donít take it serious enough. When we get over this lockdown period, what do we do, go back out socialising and hope it goes away. My missus has a zero immune system so to say Iím seriously worried is an understatement. So if people think after a three week lockdown weíre out of the woods I think they are mislead myself. Knowing what our society is like I wouldnít be surprised to see another spike and lockdown or a lot of bereavement in the background sadly asit goes on and on

Because it was allowed to spread like wild fire. The guide lines were only put in place to reduce the amount of deaths once it was to late. If you look at the world meter figures for Italy and Spain your will see that numbers have started coming down but the number of daily new cases are still in the thousands and deaths are still high these countries will give us an idea on how long lockdown will be for. I would say another 4 weeks will give is more of an idea on how things are.

Hey Scozza

I saw the news too - it's shocking and heartbreaking but I feel it's important that they don't hold back and show us more of the truth of the situation.

I stopped in at my local garage spar on my walk today to pick up a coffee from the machine (they are giving them free to NHS staff from the nearby hospital). There was a nurse in front of me and we got chatting. The poor lass looked exhausted. She said that the public support is great but they are still just human and they are having to now deal with the angry relatives of people who don't want to abide by the restrictions on visiting etc.
Chatted a bit about school and the weirdness of teachers actually missing that tricky lesson 5 Friday class... She got her coffee and then headed off back in the direction of the hospital...

You know when you just wish you could give someone all of your energy to help them through their day...?

Hi Scozza,

Yes, I saw the news and think the focus was on London hospitals, where they are struggling with the numbers they are having to deal with. It was heartbreaking to see the stress the medics were under, some were looking at the end of their tether. But it's mostly the big city hospitals that are under most stress and think that provincial hospitals are coping much better.
It seems hospitals in general, still have plenty of contingency and have been organising their facilities to up their capacity.
Hopefully, as expected, a peak in numbers will be reached in a couple of weeks and then will flatten off and start to reduce. It's hoped that the new antibody test will come on stream and identify those who have had the virus and have an immunity, and start to build up a herd immunity, which will reduce the spread of infection.
The end strategy is not clear at the moment and although the virus should be much reduced and kept under control, it will probability be measured in months rather than weeks before we are more or less rid of it.
Apparently, the largest computer in Europe is being used to search through all the drugs ever produced to look for any that might be of possible use against the virus.
Unfortunately, it seems a vaccine is a long way off and talk of well into next year, but perhaps the trials could be fast tracked and come on stream a lot sooner.
Just concentrate on keeping yourself safe and hang in there mate.

BB.

Your right, we might be at or close to the peak now. Looking at weeks with any luck.

If however enough aholes do what they do naturally then it'll drag it out further..... ***ks.

Just seen this, jokes aside, not good, at all.

Anybody seen the news, hospitals full of people with it, some on ventilators for two weeks!!!

Built a temporary hospital up our way, holds around 500 beds, two massive BOC oxygen tanks outside of it. Not looking good at all. Iím off for 3 weeks now, canít see this been enough myself?

I reckon weíre looking at months unless thereís a vaccine that comes along, soon I hope ffs
