Bell curves

bathsh3ba · 15/11/2020 19:32

This thread was prompted by an article on the BBC that said that cases were rising in the south, north-east and among older people and falling in the north-west and Midlands and among younger people.

Surely the restrictions and lockdown don't explain this difference fully. Are we maybe just seeing the bell curve we kept being shown early on, being 'squashed' in some areas more than others but coming back up as soon as it can?

If that is the case, I understand the rationale for squashing it to conserve bed space but aren't we actually going to see more deaths if we spread it out? Or at least the same number?
