Having had schrodingers virus (think we've had it, couldn't get tested so cant be sure, therefore have to behave as if we haven't had it). I'm 3 months past the worst of it. I still cant concentrate, am short of breath, permanently fatigued. Its a b****** of an illness. Take it seriously people. I had a 'mild' case, which wasn't hospitalisable (blood O2 only fell to 88% which was to high to be hospitalised). Doing the weekly shop in Tescos means spending the next day in bed hurting.

We've rapidly approaching the same number of civilian deaths in the last 3 months than civilian casualties during all 6 years of WWII ( 63,681 vs 67,200)

[excess covid deaths from https://www.ft.com/content/9bb5f28e-b47 ... cb43d2a006, WWII civilian casualties from wikipedia]


WHO states:
The flu kills 290,000 to 650,000 people per year globally.

Johns Hopkins states:
450,835 C-19 deaths globally (not sure what that number includes) since the outbreak started.

I find the whole situation rather scary. This winter will be telling.

strangesam, all the best to you and yours.

End of March a colleague of ours was seen at the local A&E.

I have just searched that post code and no deaths.

Now we know for a fact that while he was there two bodies were wheeled past with sheets over them. Staff were dressed in what can only be described as futuristic protective gear and there were screaming and shouting going on.

Now....the next day Sunday 21st of March all hospitals in Lincolnshire stopped visits. He got sick that day and isolated. Not been tested - I saw him Friday and he is still struggling for breath and gets tired doing not a lot.

I think without being paranoid or over dramatic that the situation is a lot worse than has been recorded.

Believe me you cant scream or shout with this.. talking was enough to make my lips go literally blue, ignoring the sore throat and lost voice. For 4 days it was just a constant struggle to get oxygen.


I think deaths are registered at home address not the hospital BTW.

Sadly people who have possibly had it and survived could by the winter still be in a weakend medical state unable to survive 'seasonal infections' bloody scary

Seasonal flu isn't really a fair comparison. An ICU doctor that I know was saying at the start of all this that yes flu kills a lot of people, but you can guarantee that by March its mostly gone and the deaths come to an end. C-19 is still largely unknown and we have no idea what the end will look like.

Interestingly, did you know there was a C-17 virus a couple of years ago. It was contained early and was far less deadly so no one really cared.

I do strongly believe that China tried to cover up the outbreak before it went global and that they knew about it long before the first cases were recorded. I was extremely ill back in Feb with a terrible cough and struggling to breathe. It may well have been that I had it back then when it wasn't really active here and we were still told that there were just a handful of cases. I think it arrived here long before that and we just didnt know or put it down to flu etc.

People have reported similar back in Dec 2019.
