    This virus is real but this is insane and classic fear mongering. The numbers in no way show we need such measures. Thank goodness the models were way, way overblown.

      Wow. It’s not over blown. You people are embarrassing. What you don’t understand is the measures we are taking is making it look over blown.

      Where did you get your medical degree at? You should be head of the CDC.

      UKBBF: Could not disagree more. The numbers that the model was predicting included taking social distancing measures from the onset. On March 25th it predicted nearly 250k deaths with social distancing. That number is now down to 60k deaths with social distancing (and continues to decrease every time they release a new model). While the virus is certainly real and will have a profound impact on thousands of families, the impact that it is having on our economy and the global economy is going to (already has) impact tens of millions.

      Very proud of UK for doing whatever they can to make sure they can accommodate as many ill patients as possible, but it’s about time to get back on the horse and get our economy back up and running.

      Yeah, goose2. UK healthcare decided to do this for no reason. I forgot you were a medical expert.
