900 people get cancer each dayThe thing is the 100+ English deaths barely raises an eyebrow in the media or in here now, it's like it's been accepted that this is the level that's acceptable, it's absolutely tragic. Do you think if a plane crashed killing 150 people every single day we'd just shrug our shoulders and move on? But that's what's happening
Apparently there hasn't been a sage meeting in weeks and the topic of discussion over the weekend was the oaf doing a press up. Yet there are folk here defending these idiots to the hilt, this country is absolutely bonkers
Eventually half survive and half die, every day.
So 450 people die each day from cancer.
What's happened to the 450 people that should live x 100 days since lock down. = 45,000 who should survive but now might not. Maybe some have been seen and are getting urgent treatment, but what I've been reading is large parts of the NHS are shut down
Ok, maybe only half of the 45k will die early now, so 22k deaths from cancer. But are these deaths saving 10 years of life, 20 years of life? This is vs the average age of a covid death which is 80+
I posted a while back about organ transplants, dropped from 250 a month to 100, lets say that's 600 people over 4 months sentenced to death, I fear what suicide figures will be too.
surely the goal here should be least total loss of life in years, (a 20 year old is worth 50-60 years of life vs an 85 year old worth ??)
It's a nasty business but Isn't that the job of the epidemiologists? Everyone now is an arm chair expert and knows better than Chris Whitty etc who spent decades studying this stuff.
