Care homes should be state run and every one of them and every hospital should have cctv cameras in every ward

Although the Japanese have an aged population, apparently, their fitness and diet is such that there is very little obesity and diabetes, two factors which markedly increase the mortality rate in the west. Possibly their care-home arrangements are also markedly different to ours and it also helps if infected people are not returned to care homes or to their equivalent!!
The wearing of masks is also much more common in Asia so that those unfortunate enough to be infected rarely infect others through coughing.

There’s some questions I’d be asking to figure out why that is:
Are those figures throughout the pandemic or only the last few weeks? (Our testing figures were very low at the start.)
How much asymptomatic testing do both countries do? (More likely to be light cases.)
What is the average age of each country? (Younger people more likely to get light cases.)
How do both countries record deaths? (Do Germany perhaps obly record deaths where Covid was the main cause of death, I don’t know 🤷‍♂️?)
I’d imagine a combination of those would be the reason for the vastly differing death rate, rather than poorer care in UK hospitals.





Reputable country databases should be forensically analyzed to better understand what is the right approach....or maybe there are some regions that have some ability to defy the worst of the virus, compared to others...on the surface of it there are things that defy logic...

For example ... Germany and Japan data would be considered reputable sources in my view...both have been up there as the most successful in managing the fatality rate.

Their approach differs immensely though...Germany has run some 6m tests ... Japan just under 350k...

Japan has the highest average age of any country in the world, so you would have thought it to be more vulnerable....all it's antibody tests suggest an infection rate in the population of just 0.2%...

There's some precious data in there somewhere.

Must be down to Contact Tasting.
Must be the same contact tasting that carries out three hundred thousand, and thirty four, nine hundred and seventy four thousand tests.

yes one would think so its bound to have some positive impact

added to all the precautions, maybe masks are helping a bit too

I see plasma blood is being given now from ex covid patients to those fighting it, the blood has the anti bodies to fight the covid

I thought this had started weeks ago tbh

Our population density made it all the more imperative to close our borders early. As yet the borders have not been closed. Millions of people from all over the World, many carrying the virus have been allowed into the Uk without any form of quarantine. The NZ PM recognised the problem and acted swiftly for which she should be rightly praised. If she had been UK PM we would not now be sitting on 40,000+ dead & still having 1000 cases per day.

I went shopping in a non-essesntial shop yesterday for the first time since lockdown.  Just been to Tesco and garden centre up unil now which I've found suprrisingly relaxing.

This bigger shop though, through no fault of their own had a very difficult and frustrating system which made me wonder how they will compete against the online shops from now on. 

1. First I had to stand outside until I was called in (all ok so far).  
2. As I approached the entrance I was asked what I wanted.
3. If I was going to purchase a specific item I would have to wait outside to be allocated an assistant who would take me to the item, pick it up for me and take it to be purchased.  
4. If I wanted to browse, I could do so, but if I saw something I liked I had to come back outside and wait my turn again to be allocated an assistant to pick the item up and take it to be purchased. 
5. No chance for spontaneity and a casual purchase.  All very cumbersome.

I have a lot of sympathy for these shops as their going to find it very hard to keep their sales up.

Big fall today? over 400 fewer infections today , only 576 infections UK wide, despite 252,000 tests and 60 fewer deaths than last thursday. Every death is a tragedy but a big fall is some hope it may end soon. Its down to an average of 109 deaths UK wide per day.
