The Virus is much worse than even the bad virus of last week - see how much one person can infect?

Ferguson: R0 for Coronavirus is Probably 3.1

From the department of buried leads:

New data from the rest of Europe suggests that the outbreak is running faster than expected, said [Neil] Ferguson. As a result, epidemiologists have revised their estimate of the reproduction number (R0) of the virus. This measure of how many other people a carrier usually infects is now believed to be just over three, he said, up from 2.5. “That adds more evidence to support the more intensive social distancing measures,” he said.

Neil Ferguson is the guy in charge of the Imperial College study that predicted 2 million coronavirus deaths in the US and 500,000 in Britain if no control measures were taken. He now believes that Britain will keep its death toll under 20,000 due to the strong isolation and social distancing measures being taken.

Which is great! At the same time, estimating that R0 has increased from 2.5 to 3.1 is . . . very, very bad. It means that on average, every infected person infects three other people, not 2.5 other people—which makes the spread of the virus much wider and faster. Without any control measures, for example, it means that after ten generations a single person will be responsible for 80,000 infections instead of 10,000 infections.

In other words, control measures are even more important than we thought. This is really, really no time for Donald Trump to be screwing around with this stuff.

I saw this on Twitter

Short story from NHS Nurse
This how I left work this morning, after sobbing today during staff handover. And I feel it reflects the sad reality of how NHS staff are feeling everyday at the moment.

Tonight on my shift I’ve had to tell the family of a dying man,that they cannot go in to see him, they cannot say goodbye to their dad and that they have to go home. Think about that for a minute, how it must feel to tell a family that.

This is after finding out one of my patients had died yesterday days after testing positive for the corona virus. I know this is happening all over but the patient group I look after, I really feel like they don’t deserve this. Battling cancer with every fibre of their being, having chemo, radiotherapy and everything that comes with that and then to die alone, unable to have visitors and say goodbye to their loved ones. Wards unable to support their family the way we want too because family can’t visit. How can this be happening, how is this fair? How an earth will families get closure? Can you imagine your parent dying alone and not being allowed see them?

Don’t the public want to do their bit to stop this from happening? Why is it so hard to just stay inside. And the truth is I’m filled with dread, because I know this is only going to get worse.

Boris is sick..

Over the last 24 hours I have developed mild symptoms and tested positive for coronavirus. I am now self-isolating, but I will continue to lead the government’s response via video-conference as we fight this virus. Together we will beat this. #StayHomeSaveLives

What a bloody hypocrite Borass is, he comes out of

10 Downing Street to applaud the staff of the NHS like the rest of the country, but this after he and his party starved the NHS of funding for the last ten years.

Stephen the silence you describe is so eerie. It is scary.

                         Lockdown

I live in a block of flats situated on the A5 road London or the Edgware Road as most people call it. It's a very busy road and I've gotten used to the traffic noise but I don't think it's been this quiet since the Romans built it nearly two thousand years ago. Now all you can hear is the screams of foxes. 

Comment by Mrs.B on March 26, 2020 at 4:39pm

Most everyone is doing that.
