Reported infections today equals deaths in 4 weeks time or so. It is therefore very important to know what the level of infection is in the community. Not only that, 3000 reported UK infections in one day at the end of the summer doesn't bode well for exponential growth when it gets colder in a few months time.augie wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 12:24 pmHave to be honest and admit that I have now done a u turn on this whole saga - for months now over here the health experts have been telling us that for the majority the co-vid is no more than a bad flu, and now I think the numbers are bearing this out. In the last few weeks the numbers of new cases have shot upwards at an alarming rate, but yet in the same time frame we are suffering hardly any deaths (on vast majority of days we have zero deaths, and on other days we might have one death), so why is our country on verge of meltdown over here with the media and fanatical c.unts calling for lockdowns ?? It seems, judging by scenario's all over the world, that this cuntin disease is going nowhere until a cure or vaccine is created (fcuk knows how long that will take ), so do we not now need to accept that we will have high numbers of new cases and stop reporting them every single fcuking day unless those numbers turn into deaths ? At what stage do we just say that we are doing all we can and can do no more, so just keep the social distancing and sanatising and cleaning protocols, but resume other parts of life as they used to be (with the exception of capacity numbers for pubs resturaunts, nightclubs etc) ?
I am beyond fcuked off now and pissed off that I see no end in sight for this co-vid
In the UK we have a COVID symptom tracker app run by UCL which has 3 million people reporting if they are either well or showing symptoms of covid from their mobiles. Based on this the scientists are quite accurately able to predict the total level of infections across the country as well as in local areas.
We have to get on with our lives and its knowing how prevalent the infection is in our area allows us to make decisions on whether to go to certain settings eg a supermarket. Well those of us that follow the science side of things that is.
