But how many of them died *with* coronavirus though as opposed from... that’s what we really need to know.

 

They're saying as many as two thirds of coronavirus deaths would have died this year anyway. But from a statistical standpoint it's only right that they count every person who dies with the virus as a coronavirus death rather than trying to work out exactly what killed them.

Germany are apparently up to testing 500,000 per week. 

 

I think we're still at about 6-7k a day... 

If that's true it makes a mockery of the Oxford Uni thing.

Some worrying trajectories for some countries and cities. 

The prospects in Gaza are terrifying, too: densely-populated towns; desperately inadequate and overstretched hospitals (even before the virus); supplies strangled by 13-years of siege; generally poor health standards (again, as a result of the siege).

Stop being dramatic. They've got a hotel! They'll be fine.

Ironic it seems the young are going to pay the price for bailing out and keeping mainly the old safe. The old who enjoyed good opportunity, jobs and housing ( it's a lot easier to self isolate at home if your home has an outdoor tennis court etc than to self isolate in a 2 bedroom flat on the tenth floor of a tower block.

 

I hope when this is over the older generation are going to appreciate the sacrifice's being made by the rest of the country but judging by their voting record I doubt it.

Turn it in Gnasher you whopper, the old people most at risk of this aren’t sitting on final salary pensions, with property portfolios. As usual it will be the poorest among the cohort who are hardest hit, those who have to shop according to their budget.

supposed to be a socialist you blert.

Finally back home after a bit of a nightmare. Thanks to John (Skaro) for posting a few updates for those who know me and those who are interested in a fellow formurite's well being. 

They don't mess about over here. I only called the hotline to explain that I'd been fighting a heavy cold for a few weeks, headaches, dry throat and nose, feeling weak and on Saturday coughing up blood. Never had a fever though, none of the time, although my temperature on Saturday was up to 38.3°C. 10 minutes later there was an ambulance at the door with a paramedic looking like a spaceman. He said that quite a few people had called in with more or less the same symptoms (especially coughing up blood) so they were gathering them all up to go to the Covid ward in the main hospital (flap time). Got there and was put straight onto the ward in a room meant for 2 patients but obviously in total isolation. One Dr after the other came in, chest x ray with a portable machine, shit load of blood taken then the Covid test with one of those large earbud things which they rammed up my nose. I was then stuck on a drip which they kept replacing with a new one, not sure what was in it and I didn't bother asking as I slept for ages apart from when they were doing their checks and whatever they were using was making me feel better. 

Thankfully the Covid test came back negative, think that was on the Monday morning. Here's the catch though, the Dr said that despite it being negative they can't completely rule it out, or that I had indeed had it and my immune system had fought it off. I was supposed to have another test but they've put that off until next week, maybe's because it ties in with this new test that can also say you've had it as well as checking cases who are still positive. They were worried that quite a few people had all called in withing a space of a few hours with the same symptoms but none with a high temperature as such. They took more blood which they are going to analyse as my SATS were, and still are all over the place, also high white blood cell count and although my breathing is way better I still get short of breath and feel dizzy when exerting myself beyond the norm. The thing is, due to having Sleep Apnoe my lungs were tested about 6 months ago with CT scan etc and they were fine. He said he couldn't divulge what the other patients results were but he did say the similarity with everyone was interesting and way above normal odds. I'm kind of hoping it is due to Covid and not that I have some lung issue, although I'll cross that bridge if it arises. 

I have to have a new CT scan in a local clinic, normally have to wait between 3 -16 weeks for an appointment but they want me to go in at 5pm today. I can't be arsed as all I want to do is go to bed, better go though. I also have to go back to hospital in 10-14 days for a Bronchoskopie and more blood tests. Obviously have to self isolate apart from appointments like this afternoon in clinics set up for it and use a car/taxi. I can go in the garden, so at least I have that. Family are fine apart from sniffles. Not sure if they'll be tested when this Health bod comes over to do that second test. 

Anyway, just thought I'd give you an update and I'll keep you informed as and when results etc come in. Desperate need of my bed, as although I feel much better I'm still feeling like shit, hopefully this CT scan will get sone quickly. Take care all, strange time we are all having to live through at the moment. 

Nice one G, good to have yer back.

After scoffing at the applause last night, I opened the door to see if anybody was doing it and was quite surprised our estate erupted like Anfield when Adrian came on v Norwich.

 

It was quite nice to be fair.

 

Bit disappointed we didn't take the lead of our European brothers and sing YNWA though.

The Chinese has just started lifting the lock down in Hubei province, will be very interesting to see how well they managed to contain it, or if it is still lingering and they will see a new spike in cases over there.

Was it the yingy or the Mayflower?
