    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    But nobody knows what the "rate of infection" is. We simply don't know how many people have got/had it.

  4. Inspired by Deathray's music swap thread, here's a game. Choose a favourite song, give a few clues, and people try to guess what it is. You can ask questions to narrow it down. I'll start. 1960s album track British artist A UK No 1 single hit for a different artist

    You're forgiven, but I need another earworm quick. Let's have the best song Bruce never released.

    Ugh, @time I don't think that there's a song in existence that I loathe and detest more than that fucking dirge.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    See, this is the thing. Very very few people are being tested, so it's futile trying to work out a mortality percentage. It's likely that there are tens of thousands worldwide who have/had a mild version of the virus, but these are unreported. We are only hearing about confirmed cases and deaths, so obviously the mortality rate appears higher at the moment.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    This is second-hand and lacking in detail, but the brother of one of my friends thinks that Covid 19 will be a lot more infectious and a lot less dangerous than is currently thought. Don't know what he's basing that on, but he is a doctor who has worked with Médécins Sans Frontieres including going to Africa to work on Ebola when it was at its height, so his opinions carry some weight with me.
  13. Just had a narrow escape. Checking medicine drawer for thermometer, I found two! Popped one in my mouth to make sure it was still working. Turned the other one over and saw, inscribed in marker pen, the word DOG.

    I thought you were talking about people who die from it. Like some terminally ill people get a little remission before declining and dying.

    People get better before they get worse? I haven't read/heard that anywhere. What's your source?

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    It will undoubtedly get worse before it gets better. But I think the percentage of deaths is probably much lower than it seems as there must be many people who are either asymptomatic or only mildly affected, and are therefore not included in the stats. I'm not sure how they can arrive at a figure here anyway, now they are telling people just to stay home if they have any symptoms and not to ring 111.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    It will, but until there's a vaccine nothing is going to stop it spreading. And statistics show that the vast majority of people survive it. It's no good pointing the finger at anyone, nobody is to blame for this virus. Conspiracy theories aside.

    How's she going to eat through that mask?
