Uncategorized

Based on the latest statistics (17 March 2020) available publicly from the Johns Hopkins University, China has the most deaths around the world (3,230) followed by Italy (2,158). The full list of the Top 10 death count countries is shown below:

Switzerland2,330190.82%
UK1,544553.56%

If we look at the death rate expressed in terms of cases the view of the Top 10 is slightly different with Italy top with a 7.71% death rate followed by Iran with a 5.69% death rate. The US rate is 1.85% and the UK rate 3.56%.

Taking the UK Population at 55 million, this would suggest just short of 2 million people at risk. This begs the question as to why the UK does not shut borders with all countries showing infections – Flightradar.com shows London Heathrow still receiving flights from China, South Korea, India, Italy, Spain, France – the question is why? Should we not all stop, work remotely for a month, kill the virus then get back on with our lives then financially sue China for the global impact?
