S.And David Spiegelhalter, a risk assessment professor at Cambridge University, said we were seeing hospitalizations but “there was nothing like the situation in March”.
He said in today’s program on BBC Radio 4: “It was really scary, they were doubling every four days in March, now they are doubling every two or three weeks.
“Treatment has improved a lot, we can expect half the mortality rate that we saw earlier.
“So, there has been a slight increase in deaths and registrations in England and Wales up to 20 per cent a day, up to 40 per cent, but this is still a very different picture from what we saw in the beginning.”
The statistician added that 25,000 more Kovids have died at home since the crisis began, which has not changed since the return of about 40 percent more and more common deaths.
“Presumably, it’s a mix of deaths supported by GPS and many more but some are dying alone, and some people could have lived longer if they had gone to the hospital. As a statistician I hate to say it but I don’t know.
“But it’s not something that’s gone, it’s going to continue and we don’t know if it’s going to be a permanent situation. And again, most people prefer to die at home, so if these are well-supported deaths, it can be a positive step.
