Still it's all coming to a head now, if by next week hospitals are not chocka block with infected people due to protests, then I'd imagine even more people will be questioning why they can't even spend time indoors with their parents and loved ones.

Me waiting for this "spike"

So the US has gone on record as having the highest numbers recorded in one day, 38,000 cases.

Data from our own gov site suggest its tailing off here (pretty graphs): https://coronavirus-staging.data.gov.uk/

So what do we think is going on here? Is it mis-information? Is it circumstancial, such as we are a tiny island and it burnt through the population and the US is vast and spread so numbers will grow over a longer period? Is it all a pack of lies? :tinhat:

My birthday is on the 3rd and the UK 'reopens' on the 4th, but I have no plans to rush out and celebrate with daft personal space extensions, plastic screens and excessive hand sanitisation being enforced. I will stay in, drink and BBQ most likely.

The UK is going through a huge amount of disinformation and the government specifically trying to stop testing without appearing to do so. The Labour party put in an amendment to make it law that NHS staff should have been tested regularly, the Tories voted against it. The Tories even put in a vote that they are doing really well on coronavirus, one they could never lose. If you don't test then you don't identify coronavirus patients and don't have to include them in the figures.

Seems that the government is not even giving councils access to the data they need to assess the situation.

So either the Tory government is suppressing it or they have stopped gathering data as much as possible. The latter would be because if they don't have it they don't have to give it out when asked.

This is very much like Trump suggesting they should reduce testing in USA, as if there was some obscure form of Schrodinger's cat involved. Less testing means less infections when the reality is you just don't know about them.
