The government's own Office for National Statistics is periodically publishing an Infection Survey. The latest one shows that the estimated number of new infections per week has gone up to 29,700. But that is still infinitesimally small as a percentage of the population of (let's say) 65 million....0.045% !
I am fed up with the media parroting headline numbers about deaths, without doing some basic research that would set this in context.
We have truly lost our sense of proportion.
