Interesting sidenote to this story
I really really hope this is true, a world in further lockdown and more deaths doesn't bear thinking about.
Only 333 new infections detected in Germany in past 24 hours.
Korea only 35. 8 more than yesterday's figure but more than 50% below the number which panicked an imminent second wave from Thursday. Still worth keeping an eye on.
Looking at the trends. 118 170 269 315 420 498 686 644 on previous Sundays.
A key rider to that is that the number of tests has increased hugely during this period so the decrease is even more pronounced. If the current number of tests were conducted throughout this period you would have thousands more positives in April & early May.
Pretty promising trial of a drug called Anakinra in the Lancet.
Small trial using historical comparisons but there was a significant drop in mortality in a group of severely affected but pre ventilator patients.
It's a drug which inhibits one of the cytokines.
why do i keep seeing 8,000 are being infected every day ?
That’s not the official number of positive tests. Maybe it’s an estimate based on random testing? Obviously more people will be getting it as for many there are no obvious symptoms. I would imagine at the peak tens of thousands were catching it daily.
