    Funny, because ICL who are supplying Boris with the modelling, said they only realised after his first speech that they got the death rate figure wrong and following the initial strategy would have resulted in 250k deaths and would result in the NHS going 800% over capacity, so they had to change strategy.

    They’ve published the data and in the report explained they only realised the data was wrong after the initial speech was made.

    Unless you have some further info to suggest ICL published a fake report??

    Exactly. That's why the experience of China is important to know, as while there are scientific theories based on biochemistry, the evidence based medicine is more reassuring.

    As an addendum to BlueAnoraks great post, hypertensives are usually recommended to lower their sodium in take. I know several who followed this to the letter while taking ACEIs. Their sodium levels dropped dramatically. As they work as a pair the potassium went up.

    Because the result is what matters in the end, the result is what's easier to remember. Winners write history and all that. Same in football really, if you win a match you're more likely to judge your team's errors less harshly. Same will happen for countries in this pandemic.

    It really is and any of the ‘it’s just the flu’ brigade need to be made to watch it

    Last time I came off (forgot my tablets on a conference) I called in for a test at a pharmacy and the pharmacist checked the machine on himself as I was over 200 and I still looked ok.

    Thanks to whoever posted the clinical advice. You've eased my mind about something I didn't know I should be worried about!

    The flattening in the rise of new cases over the last two days says you're wrong.

    No doubt this will get worse before it gets better, but that’s a big statement of yours when you look at the figures for other countries around Europe - figures that are showing few signs of abating. Even Germany’s are rocketing and that country can do no wrong in the eyes of some.
