I agree. But she can’t possibly admit it’s their fault. I don’t blame her for that particularly.

I personally found Hancock worse yesterday when he couldn’t answer how many NHS staff had died. I found the Chief Nurse even worse when she couldn’t answer it. That was after wondering how the hell she’d managed to have a new hairstyle.


Hancock said earlier today that the 19 NHS deaths had no current evidence to link them to lack of PPE kit.

He should have said something like ...we will of course look into each case to see if their is any causation.

He even suggested they might have caught it outside of their professional duties...🤷‍♂️

Poor.

Yes, his response is dreadful. Absolutely dreadful.

As is his insinuation that people are using it incorrectly, and, worst of all, the fact he didn’t know the answer yesterday to how many had died (neither did the Chief nurse which I found sickening) and, it seems he got the number wrong today after having time to check.

There has to be a full investigation of each Individual case. I think some of this comes from the first nurse who died, whose family said publicly she didn’t catch it at work.

The last bit is what the health secretary said yesterday ( after updating us on what Johnson is watching on the TV, of course).

I think that was by far the most disgraceful thing said in any of these briefings to date, and yet people are having much more of a go today. Blaming the right people will help.


I wasn't apportioning blame to anyone in particular, I was just having a rant.

I sorta feel a bit better now

They simply need to start really enforcing the rules of this so called lockdown. At the moment we are just in a sort of halfway house where so many people are still out and about because they don’t believe the rules apply to them. When you see thousands of people descending on the beach or queuing outside supermarkets for non essential stuff it becomes absolutely pointless.

I think most people are behaving quite sensibly through all this in fairness but the absolute morons who feel it’s ok to put people at risk because they want a swimming pool for their garden or a new patio set or a crate of beer should be punished severely or this supposed lockdown will be utterly pointless and more people will die.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

So as much of a shambles as this is becoming, lets not let those highly paid execs and CEO's at the NHS off without some small culpability eh? After all, they do have oversight of procurement, operations, resourcing etc. Obviously there needs to be an investigation afterwards about Government handling of the lot and the NHS infrastructure, funding and planning from top to bottom. People are quick enough to go after their counterparts in the private sector, so they should not be excepted.

I read something today which said the lockdown is more effective than they had hoped for? Fewer people are seeing anyone at all outside their circle than in other countries.

Yeah, not surprising. I think most people are doing the right thing but there are still so many dick heads out there who think they are above all of it and the police need to get them indoors pronto.

The survey said 90% were doing what they should.

I guess that’s reflected in the reduced curve that they’re seeing and the fact that the NHS is supposed to remain within capacity at the moment.

They probably model in an allowance for brain dead morons when they work these things out.

Sure I read somewhere that most models work on a 75-80% compliance rate, which would tally with what you're saying. They're not dull enough to think that everyone will do it.

From the BBC site Breakdown of UK patients in critical care as at Thursday. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-52252981. Breakdown of UK patients in critical care
Richard Warry

BBC News

An analysis of 3,883 Covid-19 patients admitted to 229 critical care units in England, Wales and Northern Ireland up to Thursday has been published by the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre.

Of these patients, 871 have died, 818 have been discharged, and 2,194 were last reported as still receiving critical care.

The average age of the patients was 59.8 years. Some 72.5% were male, and 27.5% female. Some 66.4% were white, 14.4% Asian, 11.9% black, and 1.3% of mixed race.

Nearly three-quarters of the patients had a body mass index higher than the recommended healthy level of 18.5 to 25. Some 35% had a BMI of 25 to 30 - the overweight range. And 38.5% had a BMI over more than 30 - putting them in the obese range.
93.2% had previously been able to live without assistance in daily activities. Only 6.7% previously needed some assistance, and just three needed total assistance.
Focusing on the 1,053 patients who needed advanced respiratory support, the average age on admission was 61.9 years. 73% were male, 27% female. Out of this group, 66.3% died, and 33.7% are alive.
Examining the final outcome for patients admitted to critical care, for the 133 aged 16-39, 76.7% were discharged alive, and 23.3% died. For the 484 aged 60-69, 43.6% were discharged alive, and 56.4% died. For the 434 aged 70-79, 31.3% were discharged alive, and 68.7% died. And for the 107 aged over 80, 27.1% were discharged alive, and 72.9% died.

A Marxist would say it is essential to keep the booze flowing. Edit - that the Govt would want to see the booze flowing ... to stop the people from rioting.

Totally agree.

There needs to be a bit more of this type enforcement. This idiot’s already been caught 5 times, I’d love to see him doing porridge. Well done the boys in blue.

The CEO’s do need to be held to account, but ultimately they are briefed and work to guidance published by the Dept of Health, PHE and PHW. How can they buy all this xtra kit if they have no money and are already struggling to balance the books?

They have got this wrong, they should have been buying masks, gloves, gowns and looking at scoping ventilator design and manufacturing months ago, not a mad rush in a March. They are talking about logistics delivering PPE etc. We can call on the army, Hermes, TNT, and numerous of other contractors it’s mental.
