    Every cloud, a silver lining.

    Actually, it's things like this that give me confidence that covid will be dealt with relatively quickly. Normally "events" only affect peons like you and me, but this one is actually doing stuff to real people.

    I seem to have noticed a shift of how the BBC are reporting deaths. People are no longer dying 'of' coronavirus but 'with' coronavirus. Or have I just missed it previously?

    While i applaud the thinning of any religious herd that is also where the comparison stops. The way Israel and Iran handle this is pretty much like night and day. Especially how the Shin-Bet went tech apeshit on Israeli's 2 weeks ago.

    Just missed it previously, "have died after testing positive for covid 19" from the first national mortality. It was all people with chronic co-morbidity at the start and now there's too many to post mortem so I guess it's correct when you think about it.

    Edit: though the rolling text in the tickers states "died of", interesting difference between spoken and written news.

    They might have changed the word but the metric has always been anyone who dies with a confirmed infection.

    It's worth noting that the primary figure quotes by most news outlets is only people who have died in hospital. The ONS is doing a separate weekly rollup of other confirmed covid deaths in the community - that takes much longer to collate. Right now that's about another 10% on top of the primary figure.

    And the commander has been relieved of duty. It's seems they're holding the commander responsible for someone else leaking it?

    Modly said the letter was sent through the chain of command but Crozier did not safeguard it from being released outside the chain.

    I tried to google around, it's probably this: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-derbyshire-52055201

    Derbyshire police uses footage captured from drones and publicly shames people for leaving their homes for non-essential activities. IDK if there's more to this story, this is just what Google told me.

    edit: changed the link to one with more information on how the public reacted to the video

    this is what manufacturing consent looks like

    It could be the major cause, a contributory factor or simply present when they are dying of something else.

    Most people who die with coronavirus have an underlying health condition, such as heart disease or diabetes, that may be more of a factor.
    by that logic, HIV doesn't kill people either, after all, they're just dying from infections.

    Nearly 10% of people aged over 80 will die in the next year, Prof Sir David Spiegelhalter, at the University of Cambridge, points out, and the risk of them dying if infected with coronavirus is almost exactly the same.
    That does not mean there will be no extra deaths - but, Sir David says, there will be "a substantial overlap".

    "Many people who die of Covid [the disease caused by coronavirus] would have died anyway within a short period," he says.

    Knowing exactly how many is impossible to tell at this stage.

    Prof Neil Ferguson, the lead modeller at Imperial College London, has suggested it could be up to two-thirds.
    "most of the people at risk would die anyway! no i do not need evidence to support my assertion!"

    Meanwhile, University of Bristol researchers say the benefit of a long-term lockdown in reducing premature deaths could be outweighed by the lost life expectancy from a prolonged economic dip.

    And the tipping point, they say, is a 6.4% decline in the size of the economy - on a par with what happened following the 2008 financial crash.
    and there it is, the actual messaging, "We Can't Have the Cure Be Worse Than the Problem."

    it's not a new or unique take by any means, but i do wonder if the people who roll out the "fuck the weakened members of society, they should just die off from this virulent disease without society even attempting countermeasures" line of reasoning have considered the broader impact and implied messaging therein, people tend to not respond well to being or seeing other people being thrown under the bus.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.
