Coronavirus 28th April.

28th April

When are the Government going to get a grip on their reporting of deaths? The figure we hear is made up entirely from those in hospitals. It does not include care homes or people that died in their own homes. So, the true death toll could be much higher and yet, the experts say these deaths are indicative of an under-reporting of those that are virus related. Really?

The government promised 100,000 coronavirus tests a day by the end of April, but by Monday they had only managed 37,000. They announce that the NHS, care workers and the like can ask for a test but will they ever receive one? This is in the week that a Doctor refused to treat a Covid patient without the proper PPE. Do I blame him?

POSITIVITY It may sound trivial, but since this lockdown started over six weeks ago, there has been no rain! This morning put the balance right. I can see the plants in the garden returning to the vertical and I can almost hear them saying “aaaaah!”
