Covid worst periodWatch
I personally believe that this has been circulating in the UK a lot longer than anyone knows, in my area in the runup to Christmas and just after Christmas leading in January/February we had some very strange random deaths some of which have had no explanation. ( I believe these are going to be down to this virus it's just that the authorities did not know about it at the time).
To answer your original question it is getting worse by the day, when it will peak ? no one knows. The figures of confirmed cases you are seeing on the TV for the UK are only the known cases mostly the ones that are hospitalised.If you want the real figure World leading virologists are saying you need to multiply that number by around 20. In other words the actual number of cases currently throughout the UK is likely to be in the 100,000 ball park figure. We have a population of roughly 67million people so I can assure you that number is going to rise drastically in the coming days or weeks.
How are you?
Ultimately, no one really knows for certain, everyone needs to stop pretending to be experts and leave it those that know what they are doing.
