The UK death rate today hasn't been announced yet despite it always having been stated before 6.30 or 7 in the last couple of weeks. There will be a reason for this and whatever it is, I'm not feeling positive about it.

Not necessarily Rico. We know it's contagious but we don't know exactly how the infection is spread. None of us caught it, including her elder sister with whom she shared a bed for five days. We reckon that transmission would only happen if the infected coughs directly on another or onto a surface that someone else then touches but it's still way too early to know.

We don't know exactly how it's spread, but we do know that it spreads like a motherfucker. It would seem unlikely that a family in the UK (mine/yours/other folks') would be less likely to spread it than anywhere else in the world or the UK of today. I'm guessing there's only a couple of degrees of separation between us, being local loons, so you would expect a fair number of folk to be infected in this region alone. To the extent that it would have registered you'd have thought? Or to the extent that at least one person would have died from it and some form of testing done on them? Or do we not test if it's an al' or ill person?

Announced now. Half the number from yesterday!! Suspect that may be a blip but could be considered a “good day”.

I saw they announced 28 in England, which would indeed be a good day. Just strange that the UK number hasn't been announced plus the timing of the announcement is strange, being late and out of character.

Edit: 41 UK today apparently so a very good day

I’m sure it’s 41 down from 87.

Government possibly worried a ‘good day’ will hinder the lockdown process which the masses are only recently buying in to?

Yeah it's always a good day when almost three and a half dozen kick the bucket.

Interestingly one of the NHS group chats that my wife is part of are talking about the timing and the content of the UK death announcement today.

Personally I think today is proof of the genius of Sir Patrick and a vindication of the outstanding management conducted by Matt and Blow Job. Trump was right. It's like a miracle how this is just going to disappear.

Nadhim Tory cunt getting nailed on Newsnight just now.

His constant use of "ramping up" has just been exposed by Emily.

Awesome stuff Emily. This cunt is fuck all v. Randy Andy.

A further tragic indictment of the government's absolute incompetence thus far was their plea for our manufacturing industry to make respirators. A sane government would fund the extra capacity requirements of existing respirator manufacturers and would know that car makers and others, who have never produced highly specialised medical equipment are incapable of getting up to speed in the required time. One of the biggest acts of gross stupidity in political history.

Unfortunately I gave the government too much credit. It wasn't stupidity but way more sinister than that.

The announcement that Dyson has been awarded a 10,000 ventilator contract wouldn't be anything to do with the fact that he was a massive Brexit supporter would it?

Andrew Raynor of MEC Medical answered the call from the government and was ignored, as revealed on Newsnight last night. I don't get why Hancock wouldn't have gone to existing specialists in the field FIRST.

The guy from G tech hoovers had designed one and offered to them the government as well, no surprise that's all ignored and it's jobs for the boys again.
Just fuck off and die.

It was indeed a blip yesterday. 113 deaths in the last day.

As we discovered earlier today, England decided to change the time in the day when they count them. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have been reporting as normal.

What's the protocol if he dies? Have we had a dead serving prime minister before? I assume they'd just continue to shuffle his corpse out for the daily updates.

Cummings pulls the strings anyway, so we wouldn't notice that much of a difference.

Surely Dominic Raab takes over until such time as the Tories elect a new leader?

Edited: While Raab isn't actually deputy PM, as Foreign Secretary he's also First Secretary of State and therefore next in line.
