I thought Neil Gaiman got dumped, that would explain him wanting to get the fuck out of home? (well a little)

I found this article interesting https://www.theage.com.au/business/markets/the-handling-of-covid-19-has-led-to-a-very-british-disaster-20200514-p54ssd.html

It reinforces the lack of not just a coherent strategy but any strategy whatsoever.

Good video about the government's disinformation response to journalists actually trying to hold the government to account: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlE6RwKwtq8

There's been a technical analysis done of the NHS COVID App, it's a bit long, but the response to it and others is here and a bit more readable

Yes. The recent moment where the government announced they had made a reciprocal arrangement to accept people from France without any quarantine measures on arrival, people pointing out France has a land border with the entire continent only for 24 hours later to announce the opposite and for France to confirm no such arrangement had been even offered about summed it up.

Or perhaps the introduction of the idea of 14 day quarantine on arrival 2 months after it would have made the most difference, not helping either a business-first strategy or a health-first strategy.

Or perhaps discharging people from hospital back into care homes without even testing them for coronavirus during the peak of the pandemic. Yeah, yeah it's that one isn't it...

Few weeks ago when people were saying 'well fuckin you know AFRICA is doing fine mate' or simply the word 'Sweden' as the final word in any conversation. Guess what.

Yup... this has only just begun, but many of the richer countries aren't going to be bothered noticing.

I'm not sure anyone was saying that but today a total of 71 people are recorded as dying on the entire continent of Africa of Covid

More people are recorded as dying in Kings, Queens and the Bronx today.

They may be on different trajectories but maybe wait until that point before the odd triumphalism.

Maybe, but it’s not likely that Covid deaths in Africa will be as comprehensively recorded as they are in the US.

Another good reason to turn our back on that self-sufficient continent

I think that goes without saying. The main point still stands starkly. When 3 districts of anywhere have recorded more deaths than an entire continent you can't really ascribe that to simply failure to record on the part of a whole landmass. There are large cities, thousands of hospitals and a fine tradition of carefully standing by and recording how shit and fucked up it is. As it stands Africa has not been seriously affected. Maybe they'll get their turn but they'd better hurry up because unless millions of Africans die Bosto is going to lose face on here.

In fairness, I obviously hope that Africa magically avoids a public health disaster. They got enough problems, such as lions.

There would also be plans to follow from previous pandemics. Lived experience of things like Ebola would make a country act fast.

According to this page https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ which, admittedly, might not be the most accurate, yesterday we reached the same number of deaths-per-million as Italy.

That leaves just Spain and Belgium (apart from statistical freaks like San Marino)ahead of us in the deaths per million stakes and the latter might only be there as it is counting more types of death as Covid ones than we are.

I've not been paying attention: Are we still using that colour coded alertness level thing? Seems like it's completely dropped off the news merry-go-round. What colour are we?

Overall global deaths seem to be slowing in pace. 100,000 to 200,000 took 15 days, 200,000 to 300,000 took 21 days, looks like maybe a month to get to 400,000.

yeh, I saw that, same death/million and same no. cases/million

however, both countries have under-reported too by a significant margin

assuming no second wave for early-openers and first wave exponentials in places like Africa. Brazil have fucking galloped to second place in the world...will Bolsanaro be lynched now? I hate that fuck more than anyone on this planet right now.

We don't have any mechanisms for collecting recoveries that would match up to our case identification mechanisms, particularly as we're now doing more testing outside of hospitals.
