Re: COVID-19 Virus

In recent weeks we have seen hospitals reopen for normal day to day issues, i believe we are at 55% and NHS back to 100% capacity with doctors/surgeons etc. Hang in there guys.

LOTS are still isolating, myself included, but we are getting to the end of this.

For interest, they are saying November is when it first hit europe, and we are now in the 2nd, not the first wave. The 3rd wave starts on Saturday when the pubs re-open, us brits love our pubs!

Re: COVID-19 Virus

This is just great.....omg.....what the heck... https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020...und-pigs-china

Also--US cases of COVID just keep going up since re-opening (especially in areas where they rushed it)....and they have found that the highways leading out of these "rushed" hot-spots are bringing the disease with them to places that had been flattening the curve...I'm not feeling optimistic at all

Re: COVID-19 Virus

It is very easy to become disappointed if one is only viewing 'total' numbers and not looking at three day averages of 'new' cases, 'age' of those testing positive, 'admissions' to hospital and most important, 'placed in' ICU by State.

The vast majority of the World is still in the First Wave of this Virus. Possibly, China is in a Second Wave (lack of data). I believe that the UK is more likely stepping between Stages and it is now understood that when transitioning from one to another increases can and will occur as individuals let-down their guard /change their activities.

With the exception of large gatherings, Michigan's numbers are falling, understanding that it was once #2 in 'new' cases.

I continue to be optimistic, as with each week, the World learns more about this SARS-CoV-2 virus and its many faces! The fake studies continue to be discredited and basic methods of avoiding this virus become better understood as to why and where they work.

initially the government in the UK issues daily figures, then we all realised that weekend numbers where often delayed. From that point on the government gave daily numbers and ALSO the average over the week and graphs where provided to show trends which was far more 'accurate'.
