    curb got a reaction from 86 Schmokes & a Pancake in Coronavirus   
    Try this
    if there are 100 people living in my street, and 3 are hospitalised with the virus, 5 have the symptoms and 2 work for the NHS, so 10 people are tested and one of the hospitalised patients dies.
    of the 10 tested, 9 have the virus.
    I can’t then say that means 90% of the street has the virus but only one has died (which is what they’re trying to say) because the people being tested are the ones most likely to have it.

    I didn’t mention the population of the world, and I did emphasise that my 50% was only as an example.
    i don’t think you understood my post, If he’s saying that a percentage of the people tested have the virus can be extrapolated to the whole population of the county or state, then the people tested have to be random, not tested as we are testing, which is those in hospital and with symptoms, because it skews the figures. Ie more people are likely to die from a subset of the population that is hospitalised or showing symptoms than a subset of the population that aren’t hospitalised or showing symptoms.

    I’m not sure his statistics stack up.
    From what I gather he’s saying that out of those tested a percentage (say 50% because I can’t remember the exact figures) has, or has had the virus. So he then goes on to say that means 50% of the whole population has had the virus. He then quotes the death figure and says that’s a tiny portion of the population.
    That all depends on who is being tested. If they’re testing everybody at random then he can make that assumption, but if the only people being tested are in hospital with the virus or are showing symptoms, as we are here, then obviously that will skew the figures. You can only then quote the death rate as a percentage of people being tested not as a percentage of the whole population.

    My sister works at Derby Royal, she was complaining last Friday of lack of PPE, staff just coming up and using her computer and phone etc. Inevitably she came down with the symptoms over the weekend. Now says she’s fed up with the way management treat them, they don’t pass information on, they’re getting it second hand from other sources, and saying she’s sick of it and thinking of retiring early when things calm down a bit.
    Clap for the NHS? 
    I’d rather we gave them some PPE and enough staff to do the job.
    Nobody cared about the NHS 3 months ago when they voted a government in that has spent the last 10 years running it into the ground.

    The lord has forsaken them because someone I knew at uni was a cov fan and also a bit of a nob.
    The lord moves in mysterious ways, which is why, now more than ever, you must donate to the Church's embezzlement fund.
    Only though giving me, sorry, the church all that earthly wealth can the blight of Corona beer be overcome.
