Latest breakdown of England's hospital figures show a more even spread around the country but Yorkshire appears to be rising (whereas at last in the North West the figures appear to be dropping).  However, caveat of this being a Sunday needs to be borne in mind (even so, it's the lowest number recorded in a month or thereabouts, even for a Sunday):

Deaths in English hospitals increase by 336 - the lowest rise in April

NHS England has announced that 336 people have died from coronavirus, taking England’s total to 18,420.

This is the lowest daily rise announced by the NHS England since the end of March. Lower figures tend to be announced on Sundays when there are fewer staff to verify the numbers.

The victims were aged between 28 and 100 years old. Only 22 of the victims had no known underlying health condition.

At the start of the outbreak, deaths were concentrated in London. Now the deaths are more evenly spread across England. The NHS gave this breakdown:

  • East of England 49
  • London 64
  • Midlands 57
  • North East & Yorkshire 66
  • North West 46
  • South East 43
  • South West 11

Quite enjoying the ‘lockdown’ to be honest.  Spending quality time at home with the family. The pace of life is significantly better and simpler. 

I think a positive of this is lots of people/companies will realise they can do most of their work from home. That plus despite some moaning lots of people are actually enjoying the slower pace of life and extra free time

That is how scary this virus is IMO.  Imagine if there had been no lock down.  

Fantastic though, how this virus has totally eradicated cancer, heart disease and virtually all other fatal conditions.

Gullible doesn't even begin to cover it.

Buffoonery Central.

Live on TV now. BBC reporter wastes a question by pushing for schools to open now. 

Channel,4 reporter demands transparency on SAGE. panel points out that minutes are in the public domain.

ITV reporter demands that like Scotland has,  Boris sets out  end of lockdown strategy.  I listened to Nicola Sturgeon this lunchtime and her approach is EXACTLY word for word the same as the Govts.

Guardian reporter asks if panic buying, shortages and price increases are the new normal. The correct reply should have been, "The new normal is media misrepresentation. Now off and stop wasting our time."

Sorry to burst your little bubble Bob, but sadly you ARE all being lied to. 

(I was speaking to an acquaintance in the cadaver trade on Friday).

I'm sure it will all become public knowledge once the current censorship and suppression measures have become a thing of the past.

Joseph Goebbels would have been proud.

So if it’s all a hoax what exactly does virtually every government in the world gain by spending billions and trillions dealing with it.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

No, it's not a hoax. When did I say it was a hoax?

The "statistics" (and I use that word as loosely as it's possible to use it) are being engineered to show the "correct" outcome.

Again for what purpose that would justify what it’s costing.

They are not, and they won't be for a while yet.  The current policy is to publish them after the epidemic.

So there are no more deaths than usual?

We can agree then that currently the govt are significantly under reporting the total number of deaths.

I think he is saying the opposite.  That other 'normal' deaths are being counted as covid to bump up the numbers to make it look worse that it is.

The figure is encouraging today.

Where I work we are being proactive, writing to people about how not to spread the virus so it is good to see a reduction. 

It might only be due to weekend figures, we don't know. However it feels better to go into work on a Monday with a positive attitude.

I tried to be optimistic on a Sunday a few weeks ago. By Tuesday the optimism was gone. We're a couple of weeks behind Spain and Italy with a less restrictive lockdown. If we get to May 7th and it's below 250 in the midweek numbers and the total deaths from all causes are falling towards their usual level at the beginning of May then there could be some easing.

I am glad you are so on top of things. You are always very welcome here when you need someone to talk to ?

I think, though I may be wrong, that this Sunday's figures are lower than previous Sundays?  And overall, each day's figures do appear to be lower than the same day of previous weeks.  It's hard to tell exactly where we are given that these are reported figures rather than actual deaths on the day but even with that difficulty, the charts at the press conference show a steady decline.

Obviously things will change when the ONS reports.

As an expert in the area, how do deaths with co-morbidities usually get reported? What if you have say have terminal lung cancer but then suffer a brain haemorrhage? Or suffer a fatality in a rta? Is cancer the primary cause of death in such circumstances?

I have to agree. I had a very well paid job, I said had it was in the Licencing trade and I really can’t see it being there once this is over. Our landlords are trying to push through a rent review that would see it double.  A little short sighted give retail space will hardly be hard to find.  We have very loyal and young customers so could open in a cow shed and still be successful my boss is old and might not want the hassle of starting all over again.  That said I’m not sure I’d like to go back and put in the same hours.

my wife can’t see herself wanting to squeeze herself on to a busy tram each morning for her daily commute and enjoys being home at a reasonable time to enjoy a good home cooked meal. She’s luck enough that the option to work from home is available one she is more than ready for. 

could we be looking at real opportunity to change life as we know it?    Allowing people to find a better life balance.   I think the financial repercussions in the aftermath of this pandemic could force us into a four day week. 

or I could just be trying to find the silver lining.
