94% of Covid deaths in the US died of underlying health conditions, admitted by the CDC after Trump put pressure on them to relinquish their data.

Don't know if this has been posted or not, but this is pretty good to drill down the data by country and apply filters and stuff..

Main thing it's missing is the ability to normalise the data against population to give a more equal view..

*Obviously it's only as good as the data input to it

Really it depends on the spin you put on it, 94% of covid deaths were old people. Old people tend to have issues like compromised immune systems.

Trump is trying to pretend the situation in the USA is better than it really is, 213,000 deaths is not good for him in his election year.

Seems he and Melania have both tested positive. Exactly how this will affect the election debates or final result is unknown. Chances are though he will survive.

Not that the UK is much better with over 42,000 deaths and climbing. Tory government has no idea of even it's own rules are.

Another one that displays the data in a simpler form. Note that the UK claim, as well of many other countries only includes tested cases, so tens of thousands of covid deaths will never have been recorded.

The infected rate is even more guess than data, and probably way out.

I quite like lockdowns, I'm an antisocial sod these days so I don't go to pubs etc.
I don't like people.  Years of working customer facing jobs will do that to you. 
I even like the social distancing.  Places I need to visit aren't as busy and I can't believe I used to let people breathe on me.

In some areas hospitals are nearly full and the overflow ones have been told to get ready.

The reason they were not used much earlier in the year seems to have been the government managed to keep most elderly people who might have benefited from treatment in one in their communal care homes, which rapidly increased deaths there that could be hidden.

Boris seems to be putting off action, which could result in a much higher death toll than it could be. The Tories are again going for economy over people's lives.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't; the people losing their jobs, livelihoods, shops or potentially homes as well as their health probably hold a different opinion. This is a no-win situation for Bojo the rhesus monkey, there's no point pretending that another party would have managed the situation any better.

Why I have never voted.


- No Party in the last 50 years as delivered over half of the policies and promises they set out in elections
- While a first year of delivering on some of the promises occur, over time tax goes back up, money you earn or benifits you may get goes down.

That would depend on when the change happened in time.

Had 'another party' taken over at the last election there would have been minimal time. The one thing you can be sure of would be that Brexit would have been postponed until another referendum could be run. That would have pushed things back to June/July at the earliest. We would still be in the EU and able to use their resources fully. There would be no vast lorry parks being constructed. The money spent on Brexit could have been instantly ploughed into the NHS. People sick in OAP homes would have been moved into the special emergency hospitals that were barely used. Had the government simply reacted two weeks earlier rather than dithering the death toll might have been halved (not my prediction).

Take it back further to when Mrs Dopey May lost her majority. Had that election gone to 'another party' then they would have started investing in the NHS. Could have changed the tax burden to economic growth rather than 'austerity'. The NHS this year would have been better placed to deal with the influx of patients. They would have listened to the experts, paid competent companies to supply equipment rather than the fraud and scam schemes that the Tories pushed money into.

HELL the government might have actually been competent.

So yes, another government would have meant we were much better off now. You're welcome.
