We are told one minute that the posted number of deaths from Coronavirus are just the people who have died in hospital. Then the Goverment announce that the number of deaths in nursing homes etc will be included. Just watched a BBC news report that says the huge number of deaths reported on 31/03 are just hospital deaths. I also read, on the BBC news website that doctors outside of hospitals are filling out cause of death on certificates as "probably Coronavirus" or "possibly Coronavirus". So what may "just" be flu is logged as Coronavirus. Not very scientific. The number of announced deaths "in hospitals" over the last couple of days has far exceeded the announced,two days ago,number of critically ill people in hospital. Are we,once again,being fed misinformation by the Goverment,either deliberately or because they have no clue?
One last thing,will all these people the Goverment are chartering planes for to bring them back to the UK from shutdown,heavily infected countries,be put into quarantine when they return? I sincerely hope so.
Worrying times. Take care.

Seems like, as in war, the truth is the first casualty. Do you remember the Falklands war when we had to rely on Argentine television intercepts for up to date information because of HM government censorship?

The truth is our government relied on the boffins, in turn they predicted the covid 19
virus would only be as bad as the SARs virus (limited) So nothing was ordered

The uk suppliers sent many supplies overseas , still the government did nothing.

The main central warehouse for nhs supplies just ticked along, with no extra staff.

It’s only now that the realisation is dawning on the government that things need to be taken seriously.

Many will die because of this

History will judge this pathetic uk shambles.

The death numbers may be over-stated because people with underlying health issues - if they get the virus and it contributes to their life ending - the reason is put down as the Virus. Some reports state that the number of deaths due to the virus alone is only marginally higher than the number who would have died anyway over the past few weeks. It's hard to know who to believe
