    There are many websites called CDC. Which one are you talking about? If you mean the Centre for Disease Control there are literally hundreds of pages. Please link to the one you mean, as I can't find the information you quoted on there at all.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...stimates-covid-19-death-rate-0-26/5269331002/ shows the inaccuracies of the claim, plus this was more than a month ago.

    On your side re the fact that it is a very weak virus in terms of mortality rates in all but the very old and frail. If you are going to make a comment re vaccines please do reference it for back up!

    I dont think Boris believes that, he finished up on oxygen and believes the hospital and leading specialists saved his life.

    Agree. It's a no brainer. That's why we have all been told to stay at home. Why we have been avoiding supermarkets and wearing masks. Handwashing/sanitiser/gloves are nowhere near enough.And we have known about asyptomatic spread for ages. Asymptomatic people don't usually cough or sneeze. The WHO always seems to be way behind the times. Remember how long it took them to declare a pandemic?

    A number of posts have been deleted for bickering and derailing, despite two previous moderator requests to keep the thread on track. Any further derailing or bickering posts will be deleted and may incur further sanctions.

    To get out of this mess we need track and trace to work better.

    I was pleasantly surprised to hear how Rwanda has some brilliant mathematicians who have devised testing programs to maximise the effects of tests and short cut finding virus hotspots.
    More of an MTB approach, to so the called 'Wack a mole' English Oil tanker approach.

    Some have tried to recommend this to the British but I have not heard of any response as yet.
    I hope we are not too proud to learn from Africa.
