UKs Chief medical officer says

translation from the author

Canadians have been scared into thinking that COVID-19 is so severe that even healthy children must isolate to slow-down its plague-like spread. That the virus is so lethal that it is worth risking thousands of deaths from the side effects of lockdown (poverty, weakened immune systems, domestic violence, suicide, lack of medical care, etc.).

Well, the UK Chief Medical Officer (who is also an epidemiologist) Dr. Chris Wittby had this say in a video press conference:

Most people, a significant proportion of people, will not get this virus at all, at any point of the epidemic which is going to go on for a long period of time. Of those who do, some of them will get the virus without even knowing it, they will have the virus with no symptoms at all, asymptomatic carriage, and we know that happens.

Of those who get symptoms, the great majority, probably 80%, will have a mild or moderate disease. Might be bad enough for them to have to go to bed for a few days, not bad enough for them to have to go to the doctor.

An unfortunate minority will have to go as far as hospital, but the majority of those will just need oxygen and will then leave hospital.

And then a minority of those will end up having to go to severe end critical care and some of those sadly will die.
But that’s a minority, it’s 1% or possibly even less than 1% overall case number…. even the very highest groups, if they catch this virus, will not die.
