    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    One place to keep an eye on: South Africa has doubled its cases since the end of May. Not yet reflected in deaths but we know it takes a while to catch up. Fat lot of good that alcohol/tobacco ban did, then. Also Chile, into the Top 20 almost out of nowhere. Could be that Latin America and southern Africa are the areas to keep an eye on.

    The Happy Birthday Thread

    Not many people seem to have noticed, I guess over the years he's slipped off the radar.

    Good result for Spain today, if that's the final figure.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Those who used to tune into BBC2's coverage of the John Player League in the 1970s and 80s will remember Peter Walker, the former Glamorgan all-rounder who played three Tests for England in 1960. He's died at the age of 84.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    Yeah, I've been wondering about that too. Likewise the Netherlands has been stuck on 250 for a while. A number of other countries - Portugal, Norway, Ireland and Australia for instance, have ridiculously low 'recovered' figures, which in turn has skewed the supposed death rate up to an artificial 21%.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    Can anyone explain the disparity in figures given for Spain? BBC News is saying 812 in the last 24 hours, but that Worldometers table is showing 537. Even using different cut-off times, that's a huge difference.

    Prince Charles

    That's a shame, they speak highly of you. I often wonder how many of the many people I come across who claim to dislike the Prince of Wales have ever met him.

    Well I guess we know which biscuits and sweets will be served at the wake.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    The official figure for the UK is still 13 deaths today (and 187 new cases) well past the time that we usually get the final totals for the day. This can't be right, surely?

    If your supermarket has run out of booze try a garage. Plenty of beer, wine and spirits in my local Shell today. Bit of a mark-up though as you'd expect. 23 quid for a bottle of Morgans? Profiteering indeed.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    Let's not forget North Korea, which last I heard claimed not to have had a single case - if the true death toll there is less than 2000 I'd be very surprised, but of course we'll never know. Hoping - against hope - for a sub-600 total from Italy today. Spain has declared 41, but expect that to be up tenfold before the end of the day. Italy should overtake China in total cases by the end of the week at this rate. Not allowed to work from home - I'm on Sainsburys supply chain - but enjoying a day off. Got to the bakers this morning and so have bread for the first time in four days.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    San Marino, with a population of just 33,000, has 36 confirmed cases, which surely ought to put it top of that table. It seems that it doesn't take such small countries into account. A similar proportion in the UK, if my maths is correct, would represent 70,000 cases.

    Life In Prison

    Has Robert Maudsley been mentioned in these parts? (nothing coming up on the search) - quite an interesting doc on him at the moment on Virgin/On demand. He's been in solitary for a scarcely believable 42 years after killing other inmates in the 1970s. Still only 66 but basically being allowed to waste away in a specially built 'tomb' under Wakefield prison. Given that he was horrifically abused as a child, and only killed other abusers, I suspect his case would have a lot of public sympathy if it were better known.
