Acording to a document seen by The Guardian the Coronavirus crisis will continue on until spring of 2021 and could see 7.9 million people hospitalised.
It also suggests that health chiefs are braced for as many as 80% of Britons becoming infected with the coronavirus over that time.
The Guardian reports:
The document says that: “As many as 80% of the population are expected to be infected with Covid-19 in the next 12 months, and up to 15% (7.9 million people) may require hospitalisation.”
The briefing sets out the latest official thinking about how severely the infection could affect both the public’s health and that of personnel in critical services such as the NHS, police, the fire brigade and transport.
It has been drawn up in recent days by PHE’s emergency preparedness and response team and approved as accurate by Dr Susan Hopkins, PHE’s lead official dealing with the outbreak. It has been shared with hospital bosses and senior doctors in the NHS in Engand.
Of course this is all Government theory on what to expect, but regardless of whether the coronavirus itself is as much a crisis as we are being led to believe there is a real crisis going on – it’s called Government over reach and the erosion of what freedom we’ve been clinging on too.
Good luck out there and please leave your comments below, even if its just to curse a little.
