    They soon got that written, didn't they? Rather like the USA's Patriot Act appearing after 9/11.

              I think you'll find that is deaths with the virus, won't you? (There's a difference.)

                Agree with. Probably many victims had other existing illnesses and their recovery was possible but the body in weak state , was unable to deal with the virus attack. I think doctors do not want to spend time examining dead bodies in case of getting infected.

                Latest death toll figures reported (16 April ) by BBC website is 13,729. Compared to 6159 figure on 8 April, it is up 7,570 (+ 123%) in 8 days. Extending the lockdown is the right decision for now.

                    UK figure is for hospital deaths, total including care-homes , may be much higher.

                      The UK high point for deaths was about 10 days ago (hospital deaths), if you track when they happened, not when they were reported.

                      When all this is over, someone is going to have to seriously consider the possibility that the only reason the NHS coped with the volume of sick people is because people in care homes were simply left to die.
                      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                        The figure for deaths reported in UK hospitals has risen from 16,060 ( 20 April ) to 17,337 ( 22 April ).

                        The figure for deaths in care homes is unknown because of delayed reporting and issue of death certificate.

                        From watching TV , it seems many care homes in more remote locations have no testing and protection equipment for care workers and due to lockdown. Many in care homes are not able to get to test centres in the next town or city. The local council should be providing a test centre .

                        I would expect the lifting of lockdown will start with schools, and at offices, if office workers can keep social distancing.

                          The extract below , was posted on Daily Mail online ( 24 April 2020) :

                          The 600-page report, which was leaked to the Guardian, will further fuel accusations the government was caught flat-footed by the health emergency because of a lack of long-term planning.

                          Chief scientific officer Sir Patrick Vallance, one of the key figures steering the Covid-19 response, signed off the briefing last year and impressed the need for 'robust' plans to deal with a pandemic.

                          The assessment said a relatively mild outbreak of 'moderate virulence' could lead to 65,600 deaths and could cost the UK £2.35trillion.

                          It is not clear if Boris Johnson was prime minister when the report was written, or whether it was given to ministers serving the previous administration under Theresa May.

                          Labour last night asked why the government had not acted on the advice of the report and demanded ministers explain themselves.

                          The bombshell revelations came as Britain braced for its coronavirus death toll to hit the grim 20,000 milestone.

                          As the country continues to weather the social and economic effects of the virus, the leaked report revealed:
                          • Half the population would exhibit symptoms of the virus, while even more would be infected yet be asymptomatic;
                          • The pandemic would unfold over three waves, with each wave lasting roughly 15 weeks;
                          • Once the pandemic eventually passed, the hit to public services would take years to repair;
                          • A huge public backlash would skewer a government who were deemed to have bungled the crisis response.

                            This youtube video is interesting.

                            One of the speakers has rated the countries which have best managed the covid-19 spread :

                            ( 1) South Korea in Asia ( 2) Germany in Europe .
