Did I hear this correctly can't find it on Google. Just heard on the news that lockdown was based on data from 3 weeks ago which estimated deaths on November 1 as 1000???? Confused

Not heard the estimate of 1000 deaths on Nov 1st.

I did hear back in September that we'd hit 200 deaths a day by the end of October which we exceeded.

Also more recently that without this lockdown we'd reach 4000 a day by, I'm not sure when, sorry!

We'll never know what would have happened without lockdown.

I'm pretty sure they were expecting November 1st to hit 400 and I don't think we are far from that, are we?

I saw it in the reports which the BBC had up on their website during the day on Saturday. There was a graph of 4 different projections for daily deaths peaking around mid-late December, a couple of them were around the 2,000 mark, one was lower, one was 4,000. All we’re over 1,000.

I can’t find the page now, but if I do, I’ll post a link.
