Were All Going To Die
Yes we are all going to die eventually but probably not now.
- Angelo Borrelli is the head of the Italian Civil Protection Agency who are collecting data on coronavirus said " a ratio of one certified case out of 10 is credible". That means he believes around 640000 people in Italy are already infected (cases at the time were around 64000). That may sound like really bad news but it isnt. That means from a very elderly population (2nd oldest in the world after Japan) the death rate is just less than 1 per cent, the overwhelming majority being elderly.
2)The new coronavirus may have already infected up to half the popuation in the UK according to modelling by researchers at Oxford University. If results are confirmed they imply that fewer than 1 in a thousand of those infected by COVID 19 become ill enough to need hospital treatment. The vast majority have no symptoms or very mild symptoms. So says Sunetra Gupta professor theoretical epidemiology. She goes on to state that we need large scale antibody testing immediately.
If you have the time and due to how important this issue is, especially the damage being done to the economy then take time to visit Karl Denningers Market Ticker site for some great work on this subject. He has been calling it this way for the best part of a week.
