    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Surprised nobody has mentioned that although the number of deaths has risen, the number of new cases reported is lower than yesterday's figure.

    There is a theory that the virus arrived in Italy a couple of weeks earlier than thought, and much of the damage was done in this period.

    Saw him riding for Yarmouth. Also rode for West Ham, Rye House and Swindon.

    Wait till it gets a grip in Africa, then you have countries such as Belarus who are totally ignoring the virus.

    Have already posted the reason for yesterdays low figure. Down to changing the time period of deaths, Yesterdays figures were for only 8 hours.

    I suppose the logic is not only that they will give somebody the virus, but the longer they are out the more chance there is someone could give it to them.

    For those who wondered about the low death figures for yesterday here's your answer. Written today Thursday saw a change in the way NHS England and the Department of Health are reporting deaths. The latest figures are for a 24-hour period, but Wednesday's were not - they were only for eight hours - from 0900 to 1700 on Tuesday 24 March. Thursday's figures are for a full 24-hour period, from 1700 on Tuesday 24 March to 1700 on Wednesday 25 March. So Wednesday's rise of 28 reported deaths and the 107 reported deaths on Thursday cannot be directly compared.

    Probably part of the 8 o'clock clapping for NHS staff.

    Nothing to do with numbskulls. Some poor sods still have to go to work by train every day. They certainly don't want the stress of having extra bodies aboard who don't need to be on the train. Take a look at some of the pictures of what the London Underground is still like, to see what I mean. Frightening.

    As I said I think it was only clarified today. Think its silly really. Must be safer taking a dog to a wood for a walk than round the streets.

    I think you and Wildcat are both right. You are allowed to take your dog for a walk as part of your daily exercise , however further clarification (from today I think) says you should not drive them to a location to walk, as this is deemed an unnecessary journey.

    Sadly I think BWitcher is right.

    Equally interesting is that the number of new cases reported today is virtually the same as yesterdays figure after several days of steep increases.

    Think if it was 200.000 deaths they would have reason to flash the headline.Thankfully the figure is 20,000

    Bad news gets more viewers and sells more papers than good news. Always has done, always will. People would rather be miserable than happy.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    No, but the lowest total since 20th March. Still no reason to take our foot off the brake. Lets see what tomorrows figures are.

    Just thinking that myself. Half of yesterdays total.

    Source please. Found it now, thanks.

    Hope you are right. I always think of the worst case scenario.

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    Sense maybe, but the question is why. Usually released 5-6 o'clock. Could they be bad?

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    No England figures released yet. No idea why.

    Interesting article https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52035615

    A bit heavy-handed in my opinion. The directive says you can go out to do your shopping, but infrequently, suggesting you should do a big shop, which would need a car. You are also allowed out to exercise, but it doesn't say how to get to a park etc. Surely safer driving there than walking past other people.

    Can't find any figures for Scotland. Strangely the reported number of new cases in Wales fell from 80 the previous day to 60.

    All day, can see Tesco car park from my house. Missus went to Lidls about one. Can only think they have got bored with hoarding.
