    1,100 and 4,900 includes school closures doesn’t it and it says that it remains in place (for two years?).

    And still suggests up to 48,000 deaths (which, I grant, is considerably better than 250,000).

    That's pretty much just the definition of married life bud.

    As I said there could have been legitimate reasons and we certainly didn’t have the data from our own cases to utilise. Equally there were people pointing out the dangers of modelling and ignoring what countries experiencing the crisis were doing. Anyway it’s a debate for later. We have more pressing issues.

    Should simply close down the schools, no point in taking a risk

    Should've been weeks ago mate. I do think other countries have been slow to enforce it though as well - the figures for Spain and France are way higher than ours are now and they've only gone into lockdown these past few days.

    And then a large number of health workers go home to look after their kids.

    No difference today in work, no one allowed to work from home unless a family member in the same house has an illness that puts them at risk.
    No wipes, no hand gels, no fcuking soap in the toilets ffs.
    Luckily i've got my own

    I said a week or so ago that I expected 100,000 (UK) deaths from this and was ridiculed by some. If we can keep it down to 48,000, that would be "marvellous" and I hope to God we can. I think we perhaps we can.

    What is far from clear is just how the country will cope from the effect of all of the changes. We are a looking at 18 months now of changes to peoples ways of life not seen since WW2. This is going to have enormous knock on effects for all of us. I cannot even begin to imagine.
