Re: Coronavirus outbreak

US are clearly top of the table, and I think they have a game in hand. Italy’s goal difference is exceptional though The US is so ridiculous it almost defies belief (cliche alert) but yesterday's Trumpism, "The CDC say wear masks, ADVISE you to wear masks, but ME, nah, I'm not wearing a oxf*rd...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Coding conventions and under-reporting, whether politically driven or not are rife. With the rise of authoritarian regimes and their use of 'fake news' and undermining legitimate institutions, it's going to get harder to find robust information. Modelling based on quality assumptions is probably as...

On April 2, it had reported 884 additional deaths. That explains why France jumped up the rankings overnight. EDIT: https://www.wo...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

windermereROYAL That prick on the daily news conference saying masks give you no protection, that will be very comforting to all the NHS staff that wear them.



Dumb question but are the masks used hospitals the same as the masks used by punters in the street?

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Royal Rother The serious / critical stats are not useful. Ours has remained unchanged at 163 for the last week.


I know. A few countries don't seem to be publishing them, but some ARE and there numbers seem reasonable

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

If we could shut down transmission so that the average patient infects less than one person, then it would die out. Yes and No (presuming there is no new animal >> human source) You have to get r significantly under 1. Imagine an r of 0.95. We currently have 750,000 Confirmed Live Cases. We are app...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Oh, agreed on lockdown, the curve, a curve, curves, but the crucial thing is keeping the numbers sick at any time below the maximum number the NHS can manage. It's a horrible set of choices between damaging/collapsing the economy, straining the NHS, "allowing for" extra deaths, triaging = ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

On the Death Rate for Confirmed Cases As mentioned earlier, for Official Confirmed Cases there is a death rate. Clearly as these include all hospitalised people it is measuring more serious cases. This has nothing to do with the overall population death rate. Crudely, it's the "death rate if y...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

There is very VERY little herd immunity for seasonal-flu. Immunity to flu rarely lasts more than a year, often less Seasonal flu viruses mutate. It MIGHT be that having had the flu, you might get that flu, slightly mutated and get a milder illness. You can get the flu more than once in a single wint...
