Snowball Germany has had a far more liberal testing regime than the UK
In the UK you could get tests if
You were returning from a Level 1 danger area
You were returning from a Level 2 danger area and had system
You had had contact with a known Coronavirus carrier
Anyone who has been through the 111 triage system will know
that you have to get through two screening levels just to be
allowed to talk to a clinician who rings you.
Then, IF the clinician deems you a near-enough possible s/he
arranges for the nearest testing hospital to ring YOU and set
a fixed appointment. Your age/vulnerability is considered
So, basically they are (or were) blocking people with sniffles
many of which may well have been suffering mild symptoms
The easier you make it for people to take the tests the more likely
you will get hits from younger people and people with mild Covid
They age-bracket for German cases is a lot lower than the UK, hence
a lower death rate.
I have a contact in Leipzig who says their media is saying the same as
other countries: namely that the death rate in the wider population is
likely to approach .5 to 1%
why are you writing like that? it is very odd.
