🧵Today both BBC and Skynews was bragging about the UK strategy of opening up early on 19th of July resulting in a relatively better situation than Germany, Netherlands and Austria - but at what cost?
Look at the cumulative death rate @Parents_Utd@SafeEdForAll_UK@dgurdasani1
Since 19th July
UK had over 15,000 deaths,
whereas Germany had 7000 deaths
and Netherlands and Australia had around 1200 deaths each
HUGE RISE IN hospital admission in children in 🏴.
👉3 age groups each showing the highest level of hospital admissions in the whole pandemic
👉 All moving ↗️ - a result of the huge number of cases we had over the last month. @Parents_Utd@dgurdasani1@SafeEdForAll_UK2/
Age 12-17 -> 5 times the previous peak in Feb
Age 5-11 -> 3 times the previous peak in Feb
All increasing at a very fast rate.
