Death rates won't spiral upwards though. The fear from covid is that it gets to the extremely vulnerable, which is why we've seen so many deaths in care homes. I'd like to think we've learned the lesson from that already, but nothing's certain with this government now - but if we have a peek here:Sigh and double sign.
I have already been told and I've explained why I think it's wrong.
I'll try again.
The evidence suggests that if infection rates spiral upwards so will death rates. But we see the rise in infections before we see it in death rates.
PHE data shows that 5,117 out of 15,517 care homes in England (33%) have confirmed or suspected outbreaks of COVID-19 for the week ending the 27th of April.
If this is indicating that approaching half of care homes have had covid already (this was from last month, so that percentage will have gone up, and doesn't take into account that some may have had covid but just the one case), then what do you think will happen if infection rates go up? Is covid going to kill everyone for a second time?
