Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

I have Covid-19 and I can assure you that we have not been told the truth and that there was/is inadequate management of the situation. The government could have shut the country down weeks ago and limited the spread. It chose not too and to take a policy of assuming that a large percent will get it and then it will die out due to people becoming immune. What they failed to consider is that in order for this to be effective 250000 will die. Now that this has been realised they have changed policy but it is too late.

Now for my own experience; I was admitted into hospital late last week after a visit from the paramedics. I spent 6 hours in the wards unsupervised as they tested me. I was tested for everything except corona, ( "we don't test for corona in the UK anymore" ). After 6 hours the doctor told me that all other tests are negative so it has to be corona (but as it hasn't been officially confirmed, as we no longer test in the UK for corona, it doesnt get listed as a confirmed case in the statistics). After reacting well to the IV I was told to go home and self isolate until it has passed. In questioning how I get home, the doctor recommended a taxi. I asked what type of taxi driver will take a corona patient who was still being sick, to which he had no answer. So I was in the hospital, confirmed by the doctor as having corona and what did they do? The answer; nothing, I was left in the public areas and had free access to roam. I was sick several times in the public bathrooms and nothing was done about it, no attempt to clean or sanitise leaving everybody else exposed. When I was deemed OK to be discharged, I was shown an open door to the main public area, where I was subsequently immediately sick again.

Have the government played this well? No, they took an ill advised high risk strategy that will lead to thousands of deaths. They didn't want to learn from the Chinese example because at a time when the economy is struggling they didn't want to be seen as the government to take steps to put more pressure on. They can always blame corona afterwards if things get really bad rather than taking a proactive approach.

Are the health services prepared. No, my own experience indicates that inadequate processes are in place to limit the spread. 

Are the numbers being covered up? Yes, we have no real idea of the true numbers as almost all testing has deliberately stopped which makes favourable reading for the media releases.

Is they proper screening at the airports? No, I was already sick when coming through UK borders on Friday. I wasn't sick when we took off but took a bad turn on the plane. No one checked me. I have travelled to other countries in the last few weeks and they were all screening. 

 

Have we we been giving a false sense of security and are still living in denial? Hell yes, most in the UK now, as a result of not reacting and taking the learnings from elsewhere, coupled with an ill advised high risk strategy will get it.

I wish you all good luck, trust me it isn't pleasant....and not going away soon

This reads more like a party political broadcast for Jeremy Corbyn.

I hope you get better soon but... "we don't know what it is so it means you've got Corona" doesn't sound correct.

As for the numbers being covered up to make 'favourable reading' for the media releases.... think you're a tad confused there, as it's the opposite. The less people known to have it, makes the number of deaths more scary.

Today, for the first time since this broke, there are zero new cases in China.

South Korea not out of the woods - a new spike today with 152 new cases. But maybe that is because of their thorough testing.

Where is it stating that Grachan?

It's showing +34 for China?

Edited: Just seen that the Chinese figures are for the previous day.

On TV this morning. They later said that the +34 are imported cases and not contracted in China, so not as clear cut as first stated.

Blimey. Not sure what the virus is doing in Portugal but it has some rather pleasant side effects!  :)

Bit of a miss from BWitcher really. But they have the virus in Australia as well. You know, that place that almost burnt to the ground a few weeks back

Ignoring all historical data as usual  I see, and no mention of the 267 arson prosecutions.Typical response from a climate bedwetter ....

I would be the last person to quote Corbyn, I detest the man. There is sooo much miss information right now to avoid panic. The deaths will roll in as the virus spreads, just look at the numbers elsewhere. The country was lead down a path and we are now going to have to deal with it. Am I getting over it, yes, but I am in good health and not over the age of sixty.

Per my previous quote, there is no testing going on in hospitals anymore. The testing has all but stopped. They check for other known illnesses, if that doesn't work and then if the symptoms match they determine you have corona but it isnt added to the stats. (My nieces are a doctor and a nurse and they have also confirmed they are no longer testing - London hospitals)

I hope you have locked away yourself (if sick or elderly) and are avoiding elderly friends and relatives. The spread is much larger than we currently believe.

We know all of that, what we don't know is if you have Covid-19 or not as you claimed.

I sincerely hope the spread is much larger than we currently believe.

Of course deaths will roll in. Deaths always roll in. Deaths arrive in their tens of thousands from viruses every single year. If they were reported as dramatically we'd have experienced this some time ago.
