  1. The Register: Laughing UK health secretary launches COVID-19 Test and Trace programme with glitchy website and no phone app Richard North Personally I think the weather will save us for a few months.
  2. FT Alphaville: Is the “science” behind the lockdown any good? (Registration but not subscription required.) It's difficult to do good science when the data are so sketchy. For example the UK's Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre recently published a report on the first reported 9026 patients critically ill with COVID-19 in the UK. A major objective of government policy is to minimise the number of potential earlier deaths due to lack of intensive care beds. For anyone trying to make policy decisions, the important questions are: What attributes make people more likely to need intensive care beds? (For example high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking etc.) How prevalent are those attributes in the community? Can that prevalence be used to predict demand for intensive care beds? Other than age, sex, raised Body Mass Index and ethnicity, the ICNARC report does little to identify those attributes.

  10. Could this be another boom for the IT business?
  11. Foot and Mouth Disease, and Swine and Avian flu? The Guardian September 2005: Bird flu pandemic 'could kill 150m'
  12. That response shouldn't have been informed by WHO's actions. From HM Government's Pandemic Influenza Response Plan 2014:
  13. At the other end of the spectrum there are stories like this. BBC News: Chennai Six: Nick Dunn reveals what Indian prison life was like
  14. I think you should seek advice from your solicitor on this.
  15. The drawback with gazundering the vendor at the last minute is that if they are in a chain then they may not be able to buy and so they don't move and you don't buy the house. When squeezing people who are desperate it's important to leave them a way out.
