Last I heard, 6% of us have had it

Where did you hear that

I think its a lot more

Admittedly sample size was only 50, but around 20% tested positive for antibodies

Tgat was probably 6-8 weeks ago

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Also

Covid accounts for only 7% of all deaths in people under the age of 55.

And 18% of all deaths in people under 65.

Clearly, something has to be done about the oldies to get us back on track.

Shit for them, I know, but they’re the ones it kills in real numbers.

bear in mind - these are mainly the retired or almost retired.

It may seem a bit far fetched, but I’d be asking over 60’s to stay home for the Autumn. Big fines if they don’t.

It is what it is for them I’m afraid.

I was of the impression it’s 20% in London, 6% nationally 

Think that was a while back though, after the peak mind 

Let me have a dig about

Still no cases on the fylde coast, as been reported on the news this morning. That’s despite having more visitors than anywhere else in the county. 

Numbers falling across England as well. 

 

That's not what they were saying on the news last night. They were saying that the number of cases is on the rise (Of course that may be relative to the number of tests being completed though - I wasn't paying that much attention)

Any estimates of infection rates is just that, an estimate. 
they’ve not done enough testing to know. 
 

Statistically speaking, to get accuracy of 99% you need a sample size of just under 20k for a population of 66m

New cases are definitely increasing but Gonzo might be referring to the total number infected.

Look at daily infections and see how Spain is doing.

They've done over 1.4m antibody tests in total as per yesterdays numbers. That's based on neccessity rather than as part of a representative study, but it's still enough that you'd imagine someone would notice if the number of positives were much higher.

Pretty much every study from comparatively affected countries has come back with similar numbers (5-7%).

I don’t think that applies to epidemiology!

See they’re dismantling the nightingale hospital today. 

Hadn’t they best leave it up for second wave/next bollocks panic?

Disgusting 

anyone proven to profiteer in such a way needs to be sent down for a long time 

It’s a 15-20 years job for me, hard time in a horrible jail 

Agreed.

Just don't want to hang anyone just yet. Let the investigations take place, properly. Then, if evidence is found then do them.

Could be a gap in the market for these marquee erecting firms. 

Wonder who got that particular gig and how the tender process went :)

A local company did pretty well out of sales to the erection of some of these nightingale hospitals.

Helped keep local folk in work.

I know the company that got the contract for medical gas pipelines for 2 or 3 of the hospitals. The contract value was eye watering - they accidently sent me a payment application for the Manchester one instead of the job they were doing for me at the time.

There won’t be any. They don’t investigate their own.

Would it not be better to give them the option to stay at home but allow them the option to leave the house and follow the same regulations as the general population but at their own risk?
