UK Coronavirus WARNING - Infections Trend Trajectory Worse than Italy

Politics / Pandemic Mar 24, 2020 - 11:23 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

My existing forecasts were concluded at a time when there were literally a handful of cases in the UK and US which gave valuable insight into the relative strength or weaknesses of the US and UK actions towards containing Coronavirus outbreaks, my assumptions at the time were that the UK and US would learn lessons from China and South Korea's and so should ne primed for better outcomes.

However, as you are likely aware by now that both nations have been found greatly lacking as became apparent with each passing day that the governments were basically sleep walking towards a Coronavirus apocalypse of sorts that manifested itself in an ever more severe stocks bear market that materialised long before the number of infections started to run into the thousands as forewarned by the Coronavirus deviation against the trend forecasts.


UK Coronavirus WARNING - Infections Trend Trajectory Worse than Italy

The total number of infections continues to exceed my trend forecast on a parabolic curve, exceeding my forecast by 350%. My original forecast as of 14th Feb 2020 was for the number of infections to target a parabolic trend from 9 at the time to 5000 by the end of March 2020. The actual trend trajectory now suggests that the UK is heading for more than 18,000 officially recorded infected numbers by the end of March.

Whilst the number of deaths at 233 exceeds my forecast by 1000%, which puts Britain on a worse trend trajectory than where Italy was at this stage barely 2 weeks ago! So does not bode well for what is about to transpire that I am sure will spark even more panic amongst the general population than the panic buying we have witnessed this past week as panic buyers have stripped supermarket shelves bare.

UK Supermarkets Coronavirus Panic Buying, Empty Tesco Shelves, Stock Piling, Hoarding Preppers

The current deaths tally now implies that the UK could be heading for over 1000 deaths by the end of March 2020!

So it looks like "Herd Immunity" is no longer on the menu, though following that plan up until the end of last week means that the damage has already been done. Where I now would not be surprised if Britain's death toll over the next 3 months exceeds 50,000! Never mind the chaos of having upwards of 1 million ill people ill all trying to get access to the NHS which would be in a state of collapse.

ALL of which was avoidable as South Korea illustrates, not only that but Britain had advance warning from China, South Korea and then Italy of what was coming so had plenty of time to prepare for, instead Boris Johnson's government listened to mad scientists with their herd immunity doctrine.

Thus the UK Government has been giving advice to the elderly and weak to self quarantine themselves for the next 3 months, as I suspect the "herd Immunity" protocol has not really gone away, instead just watered down a little so as to make the death toll lower and more palatable to the general population than anything in the region of 400,000 to 1.4 million that the UK was heading towards.
