Surely we have to be close to peaking??

gigi556 Wed 01-Apr-20 16:10:14

Think again 😬😭

Titslikepicassos Wed 01-Apr-20 16:10:33

Not even close sadly

PertEllaTitsahoy Wed 01-Apr-20 16:11:00

I think were at least a week away from peaking.

Whitefeather01 Wed 01-Apr-20 16:11:16

This is just unthinkable sad

TheBitterBoy Wed 01-Apr-20 16:11:23

Nope, we've got a way to go yet sadly.

Sadly I think it will get worse before it gets better.

If Spain and Italy are anything to go by, our daily figure could easily double.

Afraid not. Think we're looking at 3-4 weeks time.

MummyNeedsWineNow Wed 01-Apr-20 16:12:23

Wow! 563, sad flowers

chinateapot Wed 01-Apr-20 16:12:30

No. Definitely not yet. Awful.

SensitiveLittleBlossom Wed 01-Apr-20 16:12:38

I read that we are on course to be worse than Italy! I just cannot bear it, I might have to avoid the news, its just too awful

WhyNotMe40 Wed 01-Apr-20 16:12:43

3 more weeks of doubling every few days

Frigginella Wed 01-Apr-20 16:12:46

No definitely not. The NHS in the North are actually saying we’re 11 weeks away from the peak

HairyFloppins Wed 01-Apr-20 16:13:23

No I don't think so. This weekend the parks and beaches will be packed again so I would expect it to go a lot higher.

TheTruthAboutLove Wed 01-Apr-20 16:13:27

I’m being optimistic to think this is indeed our peak.

Is this 563 including people who have died at home without any hospital treatment?

Devaki Wed 01-Apr-20 16:13:42

I don’t think so. We’ve been told at work to expect the peak Easter weekend

Bluntness100 Wed 01-Apr-20 16:13:54

No, I think we are a few days away sadly from the peak.

BelleSausage Wed 01-Apr-20 16:14:45

Not even close and people are starting to get restless in lockdown. We’re all fucked.

anothernotherone Wed 01-Apr-20 16:14:46

Peak should be in June...

JustStayAtHome Wed 01-Apr-20 16:14:48

Italy have been at 800+ for a while now....daily

CodenameVillanelle Wed 01-Apr-20 16:14:49

11 weeks away from the peak? Based on what? That doesn't fit with the pattern in any other country that we've seen does it?

NoMorePoliticsPlease Wed 01-Apr-20 16:15:24

Nowhere near, my friends in Italy believe they have 2 to 3 weeks before threir peak

Whitefeather01 Wed 01-Apr-20 16:15:31

11 weeks away?! If that 43k dead without the numbers doubling at all!

OhCrumbsWhereNow Wed 01-Apr-20 16:15:47

No, this is just hospital deaths.

Peak some way off - we have only been on lock down (and not that strict a lock down) for a week.

Italy is just starting to hopefully show a levelling off after 3 weeks on lockdown.
