100,000 Americans don't have to die
Date: Fri, 03 Apr 2020 08:42:07 GMT
From rss.cnn
On Tuesday, the White House projected an alarming possibility: Between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans could die from the Covid-19 pandemic, despite the efforts in place to minimize the spread of the disease. Yet these 100,000 to 240,000 deaths are not inevitable. Far from it. As of Thursday night there have been around 5,850 to date in the US, and of the 242,000 active cases, unfortunately several thousand are likely to die. But the US could still keep the death toll well below 100,000. It all depends on our public policy, and especially on our public health system.

Boris Johnson will be judged on the next four weeks. That prospect should frighten him | Jonathan Freedland
Date: Fri, 03 Apr 2020 17:09:42 GMT
From https:

The British public are being patient over the coronavirus crisis, but they will not forgive governmental confusion for ever

Boris Johnson and his government are on probation, watched by a public whose mood could turn rapidly and brutally. For now, and on paper, Johnson has the people with him: his poll ratings have surged north of 50%, a feat last managed by a Tory government at the height of the Falklands war nearly 40 years ago. But the wisest heads in Downing Street will not be turned by those numbers. They know that thereas always a arally around the flaga effect at moments of extreme crisis: when citizens are frightened, they want to believe their leaders have got things under control. Thatas why incumbents around the world, even useless and immoral ones such as Donald Trump, have enjoyed an initial corona bounce in their ratings, almost regardless of their actions. At the start of the Iran hostage crisis in 1979 Jimmy Carter saw his approval numbers leap from 32% to 61% a only for him to crash to defeat a year later. Johnson will know that one day, and perhaps quite soon, he, too, will be judged.

He can point to some concrete achievements. The opening today of what is a giant field hospital in east Londonas ExCeL centre, constructed within nine days, is the prime example. Those who drooled with totalitarian envy at Chinaas ability to throw up a hospital in Wuhan within a week were adamant that a western democracy like Britain could never match that accomplishment, and they have been proved wrong. Rishi Sunakas promise that the state will pay 80% of workersa wages has won plaudits around the world, even if the chancellor has had to return repeatedly to his economic rescue package, tweaking it to catch those groups he left behind first time around. And the government has imposed a national lockdown that has been largely observed, one that might even see a flattening of the infection curve in the next week or so.

The Guardian view on immunity passports: an idea whose time has not come | Editorial
Date: Fri, 03 Apr 2020 17:25:35 GMT
From https:

A phone app seems better than a passport as a way out of the lockdown. This system will need to be temporary, installed at usersa discretion and have privacy at its core

If ministers think immunity passports or wristbands are the answer to resolving the immediate coronavirus crisis, they are asking the wrong question. Such a system, if implemented, would see one group of people granted the right to retrieve the civil liberties they had lost in the lockdown, and another group hanging around at home while they waited to contract a virus that can kill those it infects.

This does not mean that serological testing (for antibodies) is unimportant. It will be vital to get a sense of how far the infection has spread, to gauge how many of us had Covid-19. The science is not clearcut. Those who had coronavirus may not have known it a or they may have been painfully aware of its murderous potential. While people with antibodies are believed to have protection from reinfection, no one is sure how long that protection will last. A passport may give people a sense of false security about the disease.

Despite what Matt Hancock says, the government's policy is still herd immunity | Anthony Costello
Date: Fri, 03 Apr 2020 16:09:17 GMT
From https:

Tests alone are no good. We urgently need a community surveillance programme to stop the spread of Covid-19

aC/ Coronavirus latest updates

aC/ See all our coronavirus coverage

When the lockdown is lifted, will the virus return? Of course it will. Matt Hancock has said we will do 100,000 tests each day by the end of April, but Britain still doesnat have a way to control the virus that goes beyond lockdown. Without a proper programme of community surveillance and contact tracing, we wonat stop the spread of coronavirus. As patients pour into hospitals again, a series of national lockdowns will follow. Itas a pattern that could go on for years a until we have a vaccine.

The problem with Hancockas plan is that testing alone wonat break the chain of community transmission. To stop the spread of a virus, tests must be linked to community surveillance and contact tracing. This ensures that people who have the virus, and people they have come into contact with, can be identified quickly and quarantined at home to prevent the virus spreading. The governmentas tests will measure how many people have had the virus, and will show whether health workers are immune a but without community surveillance, tests alone wonat prevent its spread.

Virtual expedition team ascends 5,364 metres over five days in indoor mountain climbing challenge

Southworth decided to organise a group challenge after receiving positive feedback online for three solo hikes during the first week of lockdown. aI did Snowdon on my bottom step; Ben Nevis on the seven stairs down to my garden; and ran up the hill at the back of my garden 29 times to scale Scafell Pike.

Weatherwatch: parasite forecast allows lambs to safely graze
Date: Fri, 03 Apr 2020 20:30:39 GMT
From https:

Parasitic roundworms can infect lambs with a potentially fatal disease. Accurate localised weather forecasts allow farmers to move lambs to safer pastures

At this time of year, sheep farmers in the UK start keeping an eye on a website linked to local weather stations making forecasts: not of rain or sun, but parasites.

Nematodirus or thread-necked worms, are parasitic roundworms that infect lambs when they start eating grass. The infection is usually mild, but lambs ingesting large numbers of worm larvae can suffer severely, with a mortality rate of up to 30%. Nematodirus hatching is triggered by specific weather conditions. A cold snap followed by several days of temperatures of 10C or more will produce mass hatching and extremely dangerous conditions. This tends to be in April or May in southern England, but might be in June in Scotland, with a local variation due to differences in microclimate.

Exit Jeremy Corbyn a just as Corbynism has never been more relevant | Andy Beckett

As Labouras leader steps down, the world has seldom looked more responsive to the radicalism he stood for

aC/ Coronavirus latest updates

aC/ See all our coronavirus coverage

In many ways, Jeremy Corbynas leadership ended this week exactly as his enemies always hoped it would. Heavily defeated in a general election, dismissed since as a political irrelevance, and criticised even for questioning the governmentas inept handling of the coronavirus crisis, Corbyn probably has a lower reputation now than at any time since he first stood for leader, to much derision, in 2015 a and perhaps even since he became an MP, in 1983. The recent attacks on him for appearing in the House of Commons and working in his Westminster office during the crisis at the age of 70, despite official advice that older people should stay at home, have in a sense taken the years of assaults on his legitimacy to their logical conclusion. To many of his critics, Corbyn has no right to exist as a significant public figure.

Yet this drastic shrinking of his status has also coincided, thanks to the crisis, with a huge expansion of what governments do. And expanding the stateas role in society and the economy is what much of Corbynas career has been devoted to. Corbynism was a and is a primarily a politics about addressing emergencies: the stark inadequacies of modern capitalism, the damage caused by austerity, and the accelerating effects of the climate crisis.

The Guardian view on Trump and coronavirus: endangering American lives | Editorial
Date: Fri, 03 Apr 2020 17:30:36 GMT
From https:

The abject failure of the administration has magnified this crisis. The president is already trying to pass the buck


Even in these extraordinary times, the sight of the president of the United States presenting a slide which announced as a agoala the death of up to 240,000 of its citizens was almost beyond belief. To hit the lowest end of the target, a staggering 100,000 American deaths, would show that his administration had done aa very good joba, Donald Trump claimed this week. The highest end would be more than double the US casualties in the first world war. This could only be considered a positive outcome because the alternative is so shocking: without mitigation measures, if people fail to stay at home as advised, the US could be heading for between 1.5 million and 2.2 million deaths.

The US is now the new centre of the pandemic, with more than a fifth of the million cases reported worldwide, and more than 5,000 deaths. The vast majority of Americans a more than 300 million a are now under some form of lockdown, though the stringency of restrictions varies greatly and a few states are still holding out. Those measures have come too late to stop hospitals from being overwhelmed.

Full PPE is crucial in the fight against coronavirus. Public Health Englandas advice has not gone far enough

Just before the ICU unit where I work dealt with its first case of Covid-19, I was tested to ensure the FFP-3 masks I would need fitted safely. This involved walking up and down while a bitter chemical was sprayed to ensure there were no leaks in this suffocating face-covering. These masks are in short supply internationally, yet Iave seen celebrities posing for selfies wearing them. Two weeks down the line and I am well into the routine of donning and doffing my personal protective equipment.

As a doctor working in intensive care, I am fortunate to be provided with a surgical cap, goggles, mask, long-sleeved gowns, two pairs of gloves and an apron. However, we hear from many people across the UK who are still waiting for theirs. It is hot work and we stay in the same gear to do the ward round, wiping ourselves with disinfectant between patients to minimise the risk of transferring other infections between them. Some colleagues have died. These healthcare workers are no longer only those working in another country, but people we have worked with before, people in our own hospitals, our friends. The danger we feel is very real.

As the personal tragedies arising out of this crisis mount up, of course our energies must be devoted to saving lives, and comforting and caring for one another.

The early equating of this crisis to wartime never really took hold for me and many others, especially younger generations. But it did remind me that even in the depths of the second world war, many like Orwell, Laski, Bevan and Attlee looked back on the experience of the 1930s and said, aNever again.a They started dreaming, describing, debating and planning the society they would construct for the future. That is the vital role the left and progressives can play now.

There have been environmental health officers (EHOs) up and down the country desperate to help their public health colleagues a for example, with tracing contacts after testing (if there had been any).

There could have been more forward thinking from clubs, players and their representatives. While I am sure that players want to help, they havenat acted quickly enough and a lot of damage has already been done to their reputations. There is a rush to typecast footballers, to assume theyare all greedy, and they should have seen it coming, although hopefully the decision by Premier League clubs to ask for 30% wage drops will win public approval.

There is no right or wrong way for governments to deal with the financial impact of coronavirus - only trade-offs

It is almost certain that 2020 will be a recession year in every advanced economy. Most affected countries have by now adopted strict lockdown measures. The economic statistics already coming in are abysmal, from unemployment claims to sales in the hospitality sector. It is almost impossible for most people to work or spend as much as they used to.

The late singer-songwriter laid pain and paranoia under his deceptively gentle songs, and retired early having conquered gospel, funk, blues, disco and more

Plenty of rock and pop artists have unexpectedly announced their retirement, but hardly any of them have stuck to the decision. Something invariably draws them back to performing and recording: financial necessity, the enjoyment of performing, the lure of the applause that accompanies it. But when Bill Withers retired from music in the mid-80s, tired of touring and of his strained relationship with his record company (he later claimed the final straw was seeing them devote more energy to a novelty album by The A-Team star Mr T than his work) he really meant it.

A full 35 years passed between the release of his final album and his death, and nothing could entice him back to the studio or the stage a save for a brief appearance on a 2004 album by, of all people, easy-going agulf-and-westerna singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. Other than that, the answer was always no, regardless of the fact that his music remained popular to the point of inescapability.

US unemployment is up by 3,000% in just three weeks. Congress must act | Heidi Shierholz

From https:

Though it has not been officially declared, we are already in a deep recession that will get deeper before it gets better

This week the US labor department released data on initial unemployment insurance (UI) claims, showing that UI claims jumped from 211,000 in the week ending 7 March 2020 6.6 million in the week ending 28 March. This is more than a 3,000% increase in three weeks. In fact, every state in the country reported its highest initial claims ever either last week or the week before. Over the last two weeks alone, nearly 10 million workers have filed unemployment insurance claims. And given that health insurance is tied to work for so many, we estimate that 3.5 million workers likely also lost their health insurance in the last two weeks. The grief and suffering behind these numbers is incomprehensible. Though it has not been officially declared, we are certainly already in a deep recession that will get deeper before it gets better.

There could have been more forward thinking from clubs, players and their representatives. While I am sure that players want to help, they havenat acted quickly enough and a lot of damage has already been done to their reputations. There is a rush to typecast footballers, to assume theyare all greedy, and they should have seen it coming, although hopefully the decision by Premier League clubs to ask for 30% wage drops will win public approval.
