UK Guardian Releases Secret Meeting

UK Guardian Releases Secret Meeting

80% of Britons (4 out of 5) are expected to be infected by Covid-19 and of those, 7.9 million will be hospitalized and the outbreak will last for a year from now. Seasonal temps of the summer months will see a slowdown of the contagion as people are outside more and not indoors and in close proximity with other people.

What percentage of the population is that AND can that be extrapolated to the USA?

Buckle up, this is going to be a loooong ride.

I hear you about this @straw and the need to be cautious. I remember very well the H1N1 “pandemic” a few years ago. We were at the epicentre of SARS so there was fear this would turn into something similar. I headed up a Human Resources Department and had to do all the pandemic planning around this. It did not go as predicted by the medical community. At this stage, there is still so much unknown about this virus. I agree worst case scenario planning is wise....but again these are predictions based on what’s known now and theories about this viruses course. That does not mean that’s exactly the way it will go. It’s definitely worse than the flu, which killed almost 650,000 people worldwide last year but they still haven’t determined what percentage of fatalities to expect with this virus. I’ve also read so many conflicting information.... one article stated immunosuppressed people are at risk and another article completely contradicted that stating a suppressed immune system could be better that a very active one (????) I guess we have to wait and see how this all unfolds. 🤗🤗💕

It’s a worst case scenario. It may or may not happen. Let’s hope it doesn’t. 🤞

Hi Olga, I reread the article and no sadly, those estimates are the updated numbers.

It did go on to say that a vaccine may be developed by 18 months time.
