Sorry for new thread,
But how bad do you lot reckon it’s going to get here in the UK?

My methods are not favoured by some but by god i speak the truth.

There is no proof that getting it means you're immune to it

If that’s the case then a vaccine won’t work.

It is the case though with other viruses so there’s no reason to think it won’t be the case with this.

They’re not expecting that number.

That’s an extrapolation of assuming the 60% is evenly spread. They are trying to skew it to younger people getting it to protect older people.

Everyone is reading exactly the same stuff. You’re not seeing anything different. And they are seeing massive amounts more, in more detail, with more splits, more explanations, more modelling, more advice.


Well we will be getting a good idea by mid April of how well it is working.
That is the period where if it hasn't worked the NHS will start being overwhelmed, not just with patients but also with infected NHS staff.
They will be like Italy then just letting people die because they can't adequately treat them and only treating the ones they think will pull through quickly.
I hope you are right and I am wrong.
In the mean time are they creating more IC beds, more ventilators, more hazmat suits, more antiviral drugs etc?
Have they announced anything yet?

What do you mean you hope I’m right? At no point have I said I know what will happen. I’ve said all along I’ve no idea.

I’ve also said I’d lock everyone inside for 6 months and wait for a treatment or a vaccine.

All I’m saying is what choice do we have? And also that they know more than we do.

What do you think us wanting them to do different will do? Nothing. No impact.

At least they have a plan. That seems to make sense. Italy has no plan. It acted after it was out of control there. I don’t know whether there are better plans as I’m not an expert.

Everyone is frightened unless they’re an absolute idiot. But we are quite literally powerless other than keeping ourselves inside if that makes us feel better.

OK, I will rephrase that, I hope that they are right and they lower the peak for months.

I am glad you think that they have a plan, as to me it looks like their plan is for them to do SFA and it is all down to us & the NHS.

We both agree with the first bit.

On the second - again, all we can do is accept it when they say they have and explain what it is. As ultimately we can’t do anything else.

When we move to the distancing stuff and the lockdown stuff it will make us believe they are then ‘doing something’. But they keep saying it’s the timing that’s important.

Jeremy has today added this article to his website for those who may be interested. He is a highly respected and well qualified virologist and whilst the article is written for a US audience it is still useful in my view.

I've just spoken within the last hour with someone of very senior level from inside SW Wales NHS and she has described her working day today as "bedlam" with meetings etc, with more to come on Monday.

Looks things are now well and truly getting into motion for upcoming eventualities.

If that’s the case then a vaccine won’t work.

It is the case though with other viruses so there’s no reason to think it won’t be the case with this.


Lisa, Flu Vaccines do not give you the Flu and do not prevent you getting the Flu, they only help to reduce the symptoms because your immune system recognises it and attacks it quicker.
But they don't work the same for everybody.
https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/misconceptions.htm
https://www.cdc.gov/flu/vaccines-work/vaccineeffect.htm

If having the Flu this year provides immunity why would anybody who has had it need a vaccination next year?
Because the immunity wears off with time, which is why they say you should have the Vaccination every year.
Viruses can live in the body after the symptoms disappear, Chicken Pox and Cold Sores are classic examples.
For all we know COV could be another.
