Re: Coronavirus

Just to put things in perspective re how bad things are the latest advice on if you're having a heart attack is to phone a cab rather than an ambulance

No it's not.
If somebody with a car is with them, and they can be moved, then the possibility of them being taken to hospital by car might be presented.

Link

Quote:
In an internal note seen by the HSJ, call handlers were told that, where there was a risk of delay in ambulance response time, they should "consider asking the patient to be transported by friends or family".
...
It is understood the temporary guidance over the bank holiday weekend did not affect the most urgent cases.
He added that the escalation meant alerting patients who were not in a potentially life-threatening condition, that when there was a delay for an ambulance, that they could make "an informed choice where it was quicker and safer for them to travel to hospital rather than wait".
So not cabs, not in every case and circumstances, and still a matter of choice.
That is the true perspective.

Re: Coronavirus

If you were having a cardiac incident chances are you'd get ambulance or paramedic with you very quickly to start treatment before you got to hospital.

Where's the evidence for this? The reports in the news contradicts you ..

I think hes saying given the choice youd pick an ambulance. Because youd get treated in the back of one. Its unlikely youd get treatment in the back of your local, gangster run private hire taxi.

I dont think hes commenting on current actual response times.

Re: Coronavirus

I keep seeing reports that 100,000 key workers will have to take daily tests from next Monday.

What is a 'key worker' and why are there only 100,000 of them?

explanations please
