windermereROYALZip We are going to be at Italy’s numbers in a couple of weeks. Why the hell are garden centres still open and why the hell are elderly people going to them? Close them down.
The message needs to be hammered home.
I understand why supermarkets remain open but much much more should be done on home deliveries. Get the army in to help.
Horrible times ahead.
We are still some way behind our near continent neighbours with a less than 2% mortality rate, I believe Italy is something like 6%, Germany is remarkably low considering the amount of cases.
Italy is officially 9%
53,578 4,825 9.01%
But, apparently OAPs dying in care-homes are not included in the statistics.
For confirmed cases the UK death rate is now 4.6%
5018 230 4.58% Death Rate
5018 233 4.64% Death Rate (EDIT 20:43 Hours) 56 died
the death rate (official cases) is RISING quite steeply
more than 1% in 6 days
UK Death Rates
I have a contact in Germany (met climbing Etna) who says Germans in Germany
are reporting 1% not the 0.3% we see here.
