DrAmalinaBakri may everything ease on you DrAmalinaBakri Thats over 90% survival rate on reprted cases, take away the deaths miss reported as deaths due to covid so I guess 95~98% survival rate... Report that you old soaks... Well done bojo! These figures should be all the encouragement Conservatives Number10press BorisJohnson needs to start actual widespread testing. That figure means we're currently running around 7% mortality rate, which is far too high. Any mortality rate is. But it can be lower and help more.
God bless World 🙏🏻 Let’s not forget this Tory government are ideology opposed to the NHS and want to see it ended and replaced with a privatised health system like they have in America where they are expecting over 250,000 to die from this virus. night Nearly 8% fatality rate. Why govt is not starting disinfecting public places and transportation. Other Countries are washing places by antiseptics and that is only way to kill these bugs. People have to go outside in lockdown also so this is necessary BorisJohnson tariqahmadbt NHSEngland MattHancock
🙏🙏🙏 563! this is so depressing, please please stay home. We need a complete lockdown!! This is getting nasty and next week the peak is predicted... Rest in peace to all these people and god bless all the families affected 🙏 night Very sad, deepest sympathy to their families. NHS staff aren't all being tested when they have coronavirus symptoms. They don't all have adequate PPE.
What does this mean? there are no benchmarks. How many died yesterday of non-coronovirus related deaths? How many died of none Covid 19 flu yesterday? how do the numbers yesterday stack up against previous annual figures. Its all meaningless. The number was always going to get bigger. It may be even bigger tomorrow. But we was told this so shouldn't surprise anybody. RIP to those who have passed. COVIDー19 coronavirus CoronaCrisisuk RIP coronaUK
BBC_Cumbria How many people have recovered We should redefine “cases” as “tested positive”. That’s the true unit. Many people are not being tested. 1. Wash your hands often with soap more than 30s 2. Disinfect your outfit when you back from out side including shoes 3. Wear a mask when you go outside 4. Do not touch your skin before wash your hands 5. Don’t touch anything in public if you don’t wear gloves. Stay safe.
Does the NHS actually deserve that clap?yeah they building these impressive hospitals but there not actually saving anyone statistics show Too many people getting off planes from around the world not getting isolated which is crazy. I’m in Oz and since last week anyone who lands gets escorted directly to 4 or 5 star hotel room (paid by government) It may be huge cost in money but better than huge cost in life.
Looks like to me the NHS isn't saving anyone Sheeple will call for more and more restrictions on the people of this country.. as the home office , border farce and government have open borders and make no effort to stop people coming in from overseas. hi, I’d like to ask why junk mail is still being delivered during the current crisis. Surely this is non essential and raises the risk of passing on infection? My 83 year old father, who lives in Logan, Cumnock, Ayrshire today received 2 pieces of junk mail through his letterbox!
bbcmerseyside I’ve come to the conclusion that the media & all other news outlets are getting off on who’s gonna be reporting the numbers first. They think it’s like reading the Saturday afternoon football results. 563............... igeldard You MUST also report the number of ppl recovered each day possible! I hardly ever see that in your tweets.
(2/2) have left China... certainly would never have reached Europe/USA. Running the world your way caused this to be a pandemic, as well as being largely responsible for global warming. Kids' parents... you've ruined humanity's future. I accuse you all of crimes against humanity. The other important news as you say in your top story “ more than 2000 frontline staff tested” sounds good doesn’t it But you forgot to sY as the guardian does “ out of 500,000” frontline nhs staff.. sounds different snd is the news!!!!
The majority of Britain’s 68 million population have or have had the virus. So if COVID19 is on the death certificate, despite other underlying illness, it’s now being recorded as Coronavirus death. That’s why govt so reluctant to mass test. Part of the plan. Strange how our death rate is around 8% which is higher than anywhere else. takeitonthechin
night night How many have died BECAUSE of Corona virus? But brexitTards didn't Bojo promise an extra 350m for the NHS because of Brexit? This really seems to pail insignificants compared to that Jacob_Rees_Mogg where's my Brexit dividend? He looks a prick but well done exercise man. And I thought the public paid taxes to ensure the essentials required by the NHs were funded through the government
BBC news just government bashes , BBC needs to have licence fee revoked . People like Hugh Pym (failed lib MP) using his job to score political points . When is the BBC going to ask how they can help rather than slag the government off The 'other side' of the illness with great social isolation is called the graveyard—not one's comfy office in one of several getaway palaces.
Hardly news. The ramblings of an old man. Go and do some reporting. How many staff were there to support him in his 'isolation' He's no chicken himself.
