Raigmore has 7 ICU beds. QE in Glasgow has 59. QE in Birmingham has 100.

Nuff said.

Too many Hollywood apocalypse films show everyone getting out of the cities - sheep have been programmed.

I rather wish we still had Civil Defence plans so we could act sensibly.

I think it may be instinctive or much older than films.  I felt the urge to run to the hills. However we are able to make good choices and staying home is the right thing to do.

That may be a bit unfair - I would guess there are other motives at work - chance for a break, go somewhere where you can get out and exercise more easily, that kind of thing. Not that I'm suggesting it's the right way to behave though.

Been happening since the Black Death. The rich naffed off to their family estates brought the Plague along for the ride. Human Nature: self-preservation is the perfect piece of psychology for viral spread...Wonder how many are catching it from a supermarket trolley handle this very moment?
