Latest from the UK:

1,019 coronavirus patients in the UK have now died

The Department of Health said another 260 people across the UK have died in the last 24 hours as of 5pm on Friday, marking a dramatic one-day rise from 759 – by far the largest since the outbreak began.

The total number of deaths is now 34% higher than the equivalent figure yesterday, the largest day-on-day percentage increase since March 18, when the total rose from 71 to 104 – a 46% jump.

In England, a further 246 people who tested positive for coronavirus have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths there to 935, NHS England said.

“Patients were aged between 33 and 100 years old and all but 13 (aged between 63 and 99 years old) had underlying health conditions,” it said in a statement.

A further four people died from coronavirus in Wales, bringing the total number of confirmed deaths there to 38, health officials have said, adding there are 172 new confirmed cases – bringing the total number to 1,093.

Dr Robin Howe, incident director for the Covid-19 outbreak response at Public Health Wales, warned that the true number of cases was likely to be higher:

Coronavirus is now circulating in every part of Wales. The single most important action we can all take in fighting coronavirus is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS, and save lives.

We know that staying at home can be hard, and we want to thank each and every person across Wales for doing their bit to help slow the spread of the virus.

In Scotland, a further seven people have died after testing positive for coronavirus, taking the total there to 40, the Scottish government announced.

Two further people with Covid-19 have died in Northern Ireland, taking the toll to 15, the nation’s Public Health Agency said.

There were also 49 new positive cases of coronavirus confirmed on Saturday, bringing the total number of known cases there to 324.

Across the UK, a total of 120,776 people have been tested for coronavirus as of 9am on March 28, with 17,089 positive results. As of 5pm on Friday, of those threated in hospital in the UK, 1,019 have died.

That is important information. Countries need to report the actual increase the recent death rates versus typically anticipated normal death rate for the February-March period. Just saying this many people died who tested positive of the Chinese virus doesn't remotely tell the whole story. It's quite possible many or most of these deaths would have been expected to occur within this timeframe anyway. I mean...ages 63 to 99. Come on.

Aussies might want to take a look - got temps entering the data? Chimps? OR...what.

They are supposed to know more about this than me but now I've got some doubts.

They seem to have the deaths number sorted out now. I believe 14 is correct at this time.

"...The 67-year-old king’s entourage included a “harem” of 20 concubines and numerous servants, reported German tabloid Bild. It is unclear if his four wives are living in the hotel with the rest of the group."

I suspect not...

UK's NHS Under Severe Strain as Corovirus Hosital Cases Increase.

Coronavirus: Is the NHS ready for its toughest seven days ever?
55 minutes ago
‘We are doing everything we possibly can, but we simply do not have enough intensive care nurses. We are going to have to accept we can’t save everyone’.

The next seven days will test the National Health Service like never before, as the number of coronavirus patients needing life-saving treatment begins to approach unsustainable levels – with predictions that patient numbers could double every few days.

Across the country hospitals are hoping the 33,000 extra beds in makeshift wards that have been fashioned out of old clinic spaces, offices and surgical theatres will give the NHS the capacity it needs.

The number of UK deaths has passed 1,000, with 260 further victims of the epidemic. The increase, from 759 to 1,019, was by far the biggest day-on-day rise in fatalities since the outbreak began.

NHS chief Stephen Powis told a Downing Street press conference that while every death is a tragedy, less than 20,000 would be a good outcome for the UK. “We shouldn’t be complacent about that,” he added. “Although that would be a good result, it will only happen if we stop the transmission of the virus.”

There is mounting concern among NHS leaders and senior nurses, who have told The Independent there is a major risk over safely staffing the extra beds and treating patients who need help to breathe, alongside concerns that large numbers of staff could become sick themselves.

One chief nurse at a hospital in the midlands told The Independent what was now being considered for intensive care “would have been unthinkable in normal times. This is going to push staff who aren’t used to this sort of acute care of patients to the limits.”

Nicki Credland, chair of the British Association of Critical Care Nurses (BACCN), added: “We are doing everything we possibly can, but we simply do not have enough intensive care nurses. We are going to have to accept we can’t save everyone.”

London is expected to be the worst hit during the next 10 days with the rest of the country following behind within the first few weeks of April.

On Friday NHS England confirmed there were 6,300 Covid-19 patients in hospital, with at least half thought to be hospitalised in London. Cabinet minister Michael Gove said on Friday that the number of cases was doubling every two to three days...

Trump drops idea of New York lockdown as U.S. death count crosses 2,000

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he would issue a travel warning for the hard-hit New York area to limit the spread of the coronavirus, backing off from an earlier suggestion that he might try to cut off the region entirely.

“A quarantine will not be necessary,” he said on Twitter.

Trump’s announcement came as the U.S. death count crossed 2,100, more than double the level from two days ago. The United States has now recorded more than 122,000 cases of the respiratory virus, the most of any country in the world.
