hmmm...

so locally hospitalisations are up 80 % deaths 400% nationally deaths are up about 80 % week on week

who says this omicron variant is mild it seems to be taking a lot of people out :sad:


I think the quarter of a million deaths estimated in the original scientific analysis presented to HMG at the start is looking very realistic at the moment

Well me and most, if not all, of the medical/scientific comnunity.

If you remember this time last year we were dealing with 1000+ deaths a day.

Loads more people have covid, loads more are in hospital, but fewer people are on ventilators.

And a significant amount of people, maybe the majority, are dying with covid rather than of covid.

Mr doom and gloom has a glass that’s empty, not half empty. It’s about time the government stopped putting out these meaningless stats.
For instance, edders stated an increase in death rates in south Kesteven of 400%. It’s actually listed at 300% in todays stats, but the significant thing is the death rate was four, from zero. Tragic for the families of those four. However, it should be recognised that there was an adjustment in the figures in a hangover from the Xmas period. Anyone would think that previous to January 2020, no one died of anything at all.
Back to life, back to reality, now.

And with breathtaking cynicism the Scottish government has allowed crowds of more than 500 at outdoor events, just in time for the six nations. The games could have been played in England otherwise.
