Wifes uncle has it. Too old to have the ventilator. Would be a sprightly man for his age. He was taken in couple of days ago struggling. Had a much more settled night last night and now we are told he in palliative care so must have deteriorated rapidly

Like anyone with this awful virus, hope Boris can pull through. Must be terrifying right now for his pregnant partner. He was a very foolish man, like Trump and some other leaders. I do think Downing Street is probably being more positive than the situation merits, but that is understandable.

There's 49 in ICU in the whole of the 6 counties atm, 5 in Altnagelvin. The ICU numbers in Altnagelvin have remained fairly constant the last week or so eg 4 last Wed, 3 on the Thursday etc. How these numbers look in 2 weeks time, who knows?
The North-West definitely took it's lead from the South, so hopefully that pays dividends.

Some of the stats being bandied about are crazy and the crazier the better as regards social media, Whatsapp etc. This thread definitely isn't good for your health!

I think there is probably some context missing in that ventilator stat. Someone talked about CPAP there. I am not sure that is considered a ventilator so if you were on that you're ok. I am no expert on this mind but I am just not convinced by the stat.

Also I know quite a few now who have had this (between half a dozen and a dozen) and have been ok - very bad fever but that was the height of it. That's not to say it isn't horrendous and everyone clearly wants to avoid as much as possible in case you are one of those stats but the scenarios talked about are more in the minority than the majority.
Tested or just think they had it as they had a bad flu in December?

73 deaths in the North, MC doesn’t want complacency seeping in!

3 deaths today, sister said Musgrave Park was busy today, are parks not closed?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)
