Previous predictions assumed that demand would be 50 per cent lower than experts now expect. But updated data from Britain and Italy - where hospitals have been overwhelmed and 2,158 people have died - have demonstrated that previous assumptions, based on experience with viral pneumonia, were far too low.

No harm to the inept f**kers in Whitehall, but the Chinese were saying that 32% of cases presented needed ICU treatment in January.

Do you really think the British Empire should take account of something from people that they used to sell opium to? Or even a crowd of opera singing pizza makers?

Obviously not old chap.

I say COVID-19 may be able to beat these small yellow men or those excitable Southern Europeans, but against the might of the Royal Navy our boys will soon send COVID-19 to Davy Jones' locker.

Hopefully the world may now move away from Anglo American neo liberalism to a more co operative way of doing things.

I see reports all schools in the 6 Cos to close from today?

Agree that this is a disaster , horrible , unprecedented etc etc but something Must be different about Italy . Does anyone have actual stats for the percentage of Italyís over 65s compared to other nations ?

Back to work today , most are just bantering about it all , doesnít seem to bother them at all if Iím honest .

Anyone who isnít bothered about it is a clown. The full scale (and time scale) of this hasnít set in for most people yet.

Most of the people you with with are absolute morons in that case.

Teacher assessment for exam grades by the look of it. The storm that will cause could rage for years.

23% of Italy is over 65, 2nd highest in world. Also I read an article where it said the culture in Italy is for the young and old to mix frequently. That said their numbers are dire, I really hope we can avoid that level of carnage. 470 dead in last 24 hours.

The UK have 104 deaths as of today.  If we / they are tracking at the same rate as Italy the number tomorrow should be approx 145.
Will be interesting to see.
