13,729 deaths in the UK so far with one scientist predicting we could see 40,000 die during this wave alone.

The joys of living in an overcrowded island nation.

In Denmark the curve is as flat as it can possible get. We have seen a huge drop in deaths from normal influenza and even sexually transferred diseases are dropping like a stone due to social distancing. It has come to a point where we have fewer deaths in 2020 as we had in 2019. There is no proof of a over-deadliness due to covid-19, can exceed the statistical uncertainty.

Dead per 1.000.000 population: https://www.datawrapper.de/_/qvFdX/



I had time to walk through all my black boxes and if you have 20 minutes to waste... ;)

At the end of last week, I joined the ranks of the 0.7% of Californians who have been tested for Covid,
and the 89% of testees whose results were negative (“virus not detected”).
 
Not due to any cough, fever, congestion, loss of smell, or known contact with anyone known to have contacted any Covid patient.
 
Got referred for testing after a long-scheduled visit with a new dermatologist, in a week that “Covid Toe” was getting to be talked about in medical circles and the news.   A visit by video (!), with some uploaded still pictures of a minor finger ailment.
 
Next thing you know, I was directed to report for drive-through testing.  Only contact with clinical staff was through open window on driver’s side of my car.  Had to lower my mask an inch so they could put an awfully long swab all the way up my nose.

I took my partner in for a test a few weeks back in NZ - she'd gotten a new cough (most likely allergies) and that plus recent international travel made them request a test. Can confirm that the swab looks long enough to tickle your brain!

Came back negative in a bit over a day's time. She was in a slightly less exclusive group than you - over 98% of tests have been negative in NZ (covering at least ~1.5% of population, hard to tell exactly without knowing the number of re-tests).

Since her test they've widened the testing criteria to "any new respiratory symptoms/fever" or "you went to a supermarket where we're doing random population testing" - no "COVID Toe" needed! (I hadn't heard of such a thing before your post).

Unfortunately we've just arrived back in the UK, where the criteria seems to be "severely ill in hospital" - a number of colleagues have had it and not even been close to being tested, so the current UK prevalence numbers are a fantasy at best - the tests they are doing are coming back with a positive rate over 1/3.

I start at work again tomorrow, first day back at my desk in 47 days. I was home sick just before the isolation started, so have an extra 5 days to add to it. It is no longer required to work 100% from home, but still to be planned to do so if possible. If physical presence is needed and you can do the job within the guidelines set by our "CDC", then we can do it.
 
I have turned my whole workshop around, been in every drawer, box, crate, container, shelf and cupboard. I sorted a lot of stuff, re-found a lot of things and threw nothing out!

I guess this video is the culmination of being home for 7 weeks.

Ahhh, so sad. The proud knight, Mads of the Barnkobs, is going back into slavery after 47 days.

Thank you for the entertainment in dreary days.
