On Monday April 6th, IHME predicted 66,314 deaths in the UK, with a maximum of 2,932 deaths on April 17th. This got a mass of coverage.
UK predicted to account for 40% of deaths in Europe. Peak of nearly 3,000 deaths a day expected ‘The analysts also claim discussions over “herd immunity” led to a delay in the UK introducing physical distancing measures’
UK will have Europe's worst coronavirus death toll, says study If this is true, will it be the price paid for having misfits and weirdos in the heart of government? Shocking article.
US: (81,766 deaths / 327000000 pop) * 100 = 0.0250% UK: (66,314 deaths / 66000000 pop) * 100 = 0.1005% I had to calculate this again I was so shocked: By August, one in 1,000 people in the UK are projected to have died of COVID-19.
65,000 deaths are expected in the UK, the vast majority of them in the next month. The people responsible for this don't belong in government, they belong in prison. I mean that quite seriously.
If this is true we'll have three times the death rate of the rest of Europe and a needless 44,000 people will have died in comparison to the European average. All despite having the opportunity to learn from Italy, France and Spain.
"World-leading disease data analysts have projected that the UK will become the country worst hit by #COVID19 in Europe. The analysts also claim discussions over 'herd immunity' led to a delay in the UK introducing physical distancing measures."

Why will US & UK have the very worst #Covid19 death & economic tolls in the entire developed world? Simple. Both are led by blathering/bombastic/blowhards who screwed up big time in containing the pandemic.
This is not good news lets hope they have got it wrong - UK will have Europe's worst #COVID_19 death toll, says study
“The flirtation in government with the idea of “herd immunity” as a way out of the epidemic meant there was a delay in implementing physical distancing until 23 March, when there were already 54 daily deaths.”
1/n This is very important. The have new modelling out, predicting that: Italy and Spain are going down from peak, but that the UK will have its #COVID19 peak in 10 days’ time, on 17 April.
I like the way presents the same news by the same journalist again with a more provocative header because the initial tempered article didnt resonate
