Worryingly high for a Saturday. Please stay safe everybody

Growth is thankfully slowing but we won't see the peak for another week.

Let's hope this most widespread and contagious outbreak means there will be a dramatic drop following the pinnacle, and not a frustratingly slow bleed like the last larger wave which took several weeks per 50% reduction in cases.

Oh no the sky is falling…..

24 with severe symptoms in Tokyo??

enough with the scare mongering and hysteria! Influenza probably has the same amount of patients but they never stopped the world over that. Bad cold or flu at worst get over it and move on!
