Sensible?

Well they don't want to be spreading the new strain around more than necessary, do they?

Dunno about that, but when I butter my bread, I always make sure it goes all the way to the crust. So if there was a UK shaped loaf, the coastline would always get some. :t:

I am just going by this.....average available beds 2019 3,666. Average available beds 2020 was 4,386. So I make it more beds available

Could it just be that people who would in normal times be admitted to hospital  are not being so.  Possibly so beds can be kept for what are now considered more urgent cases? Similarly fewer  GP appointments as they now prefer  to phone you and diagnose over the phone. Today I heard of someone I know (not over 80 or ill) collapsing at his door being taken to hospital, diagnosed with Covid and then sent home to self isolate. I would suggest he would have been kept in  hospital  pre covid but sent home as beds being reserved for what are perceived as more urgent cases.

Even so, it wouldn't tell the whole story as they are especially keeping beds empty by putting off unnecessary ops as we know

Do they not always do that in the winter?

From that article:

“It is not possible to make direct comparisons with the level of infection during the first wave of the virus, because mass testing was only introduced in the UK in May, but it has been estimated there may have been as many 100,000 cases a day at the peak in late March and early April.”

It wouldn’t surprise me if there had been 200,000 cases a day in March.

Plus why are there Ambulances lined up in great numbers outside hospitals with patients inside. No beds ?    In the news TV bulletins all day in different channels.  

My wife was rushed to hospital a couple of weeks ago, & sat outside A&E in an ambulance for over 6 hours. There were 13 ambulances in front of her when she arrived. A doctor was going in the ambulances & assessing who was the most serious, & they then went to the front of the queue.

I have heard reports of a road accident victim  waiting 2 hours for an ambulance to arrive

broke my finger a few weeks ago, was going to leave it and not bother the hospital, but after a week it was still badly swollen and a strange shape so went to A&E in Kings Lynn .. pretty much empty waiting room and seen really quick, and through in the cubicles it was as quiet as i've ever seen there. Appt with fracture clinic early next morning in a very quiet hospital again. No ambulances queuing, no packed out A&E, yet we're told it's absolutely heaving everywhere
