I was replying to a post about death rates in the US Walleye. Those states recording 10s of thousands of new cases per day.Are you sure? We always had spare capacity in ICU but our death rate was very high.
I personally think the corona virus rattled through the NHS and Care home system in the UK and if it gets back in there, we'll have a similar peak of another 40k. I suspect in the US and places elsewhere the second peaks are not yet in the health and social care system yet so mortality is much much lower, for now anyway.
Whatever happens next, the NHS needs to be much better prepared to keep the virus contained.
The hospitals there are getting to maximum capacity. If things get any worse and those units can't cope, there will inevitably be more deaths.
Sorry for any confusion.
