Use the experience of successful countries to help COVID-19 patients in the UK
The outcomes of closed cases (= deaths + recovered) of COVID-19 in the UK include 96% deaths and 4% recovered / discharged, according to https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/uk/ (updated: April 03, 2020, 12:40 GMT).
The deaths percentages of closed cases are only 5% in Germany (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/... - updated: April 03, 2020, 12:40 GMT) and 3% in South Korea (https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/... - updated: April 03, 2020, 12:40 GMT).
Such figures are probably the only relevant ones for the infected people. (An explanation is given here: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-death-rate/#correct ). For already infected people it does not matter only how the disease spreads. For them it is not only about testing, tracing or social distancing. It is more about treating the symptoms.
It seems the therapy protocols used in South Korea and Germany are efficient, but the one used in the UK it is not. Of course, even successful countries could not cure the disease by now, but they treat the symptoms well enough, so the bodies can recover. How are the symptoms treated in the UK, as so many people die?
quick and using experiences of successful countries should be
mandatory in such a pandemic. Infected people have no time to wait!
They desperately need the best therapeutic methods available!
Please find and adopt the therapeutic methods used in successful countries like Germany and South Korea!
