    Default Lockdown Lite

    I see groups of teenagers all together, no 2m SD.

    People in shops, supermarket isles packed.

    WTF? More of a Lockdown Lite now.

    Sod this, I'm off on holiday.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    There was never a lockdown - 40% of private transport was running ffs, 40%!

    So now Italy gets 500 cases per day and we get 3-4k., yet schools about to get open - total madness

    Going back to original statements from HMG the purpose of lockdown is not to protect the vanishingly small %age that might die from it. It is to stop the NHS from being overrun (in the NHSs estimation) so they wanted to slow the spread until the numbers worked. There are currently 1000s of ITU beds unoccupied.

    both down apparently

    Falls in gun and knife crime a 'silver lining' to pandemic, says Met chief | UK news | The Guardian

    Knife crime in the capital, which has been the continual crisis of Dick’s commissionership since 2017, is down by more than 50%, and stab wounds among people under 25 have fallen by 69%. Across the UK, police have reported huge falls in crime.
    but bike crime up

    Bike thefts increase by 50 per cent since beginning of lockdown

    Care to provide your source for that claim?

    Given that the NHS England reports they had 4,125 adult critical care beds in total in October 2019, I'd like to see who is saying there are thousands of them unoccupied. (source: NHS Monthly SitRep Timeseries February 2020 all HTC)
    I chose October as it was the highest level since February 2019 (when it was 4,157). Over the last 10 years, the average is 3,920 adult critical care beds.
