Western governments have been caught unprepared lack of medical equipment in stock etc. Have dillyed and dallyed allowed the political advisers and Public Relations people to dictate the intial response to the Virus.

Finally once they allowed the Medical advisors and , Epedimiologists to co-ordinate the response. Organised the coronavirus lock downs the horse had already bolted. Has been a shambles. Now its question of trying to manage things the best they can. And hoping for the best.

Wuhan Residents Claim The True Death Toll From Coronavirus Is Close To 47,000

Though the Chinese Communist government claimed that only around 2,535 residents of Wuhan died from the deadly coronavirus, residents of the city are claiming that the number is substantially higher, with one estimate claiming that as many as nearly 47,000 people died from the disease, per Radio Free Asia.

Questions first arose about the veracity of the Chinese figures after residents began posting images of thousands of urns being delivered throughout the city. As was previously covered by The Inquistir, around 5,000 cremations urns were reported to have been transported to a single funeral home in the space of just two days — suggesting that the total number of fatalities was at a minimum double the original Chinese estimates.

Now, residents are beginning to voice their beliefs that the Chinese government has covered up tens of thousands of deaths due to COVID-19.

“Anyone looking at that [death toll] figure will realize, anyone with any ability to think, ‘what are they talking about [2,535] people?'” said one resident, who stated that no one in Wuhan believed the stated fatality rate was real.

Social media posts have estimated that the seven funeral homes in the city were creating around 3,500 urns daily over the past week and a half. This would put the tally of fatalities at around 42,000. Other approximations, based on the cremation furnace capacity, claimed that the total number of deaths was an eye-watering 46,800.

“It can’t be right… because the incinerators have been working round the clock, so how can so few people have died?” an Wuhan resident surnamed Zhang added.

Tablighis are receiving bad rep in India, Pakistan, Indonesia and Malaysia due to holding gathering in the last 4 weeks.

May Allah protect the work and its workers.

Not followed the thread entirely so forgive me if this has been already addressed. Am I right in that the only non divine way of this virus going away and stopping claiming lives is

1. Vaccinations, which would take minium a year
2. Let nature takes is course and infect all 7.5 billion people and whoever dies so be it and ones who survive hopefully be immuned to catching it again.


In the dajjal threat I was often dismissive of how Muslims will follow dajjal unless it was for self preservation. Seeing how Muslims are among the worse culprits of panic buying and hoarding I now see why so many will accept him. If uk Muslims who have it so easy are behavin like this now they will definitely sell their deen when things are really hard and starving and dajjal is only one who will fill their stomachs

Allah save us

Yes, I think that the situation will remain so for 6 months to a year (best hope) but your non-divine options are incorrect.

  1. Treatment: There are several trials worldwide. IF an existing drug (or a cocktail of drugs) is found to be effective then treatment can be cheap, easy and quick. IF a new drug e.g. Remdasavir (or a new cocktail is needed) then you are looking at 12-18 months, see below
  2. Traditional Vaccination: It is never 100% effective and right now that there are only 6-7 countries which have mapped Sars-Cov2 Genome (including Pakistan yesterday) so this is a good 18 months away. 

  3. Centivax: This is way more exciting. This is by an ethical company which doesn't believe in making money etc

1 & 2 are lightening speeds in terms of drug and vaccine testing

Stay tuned for what they have to say this week:

twitter.com/CurlyJungleJake

This cheap and easily available anti-viral has been tested on 340 Patients in China, does not seem to work on severe cases but it is good enough for many. It is not available in US or Britain or Europe.


P.S: Remember that overwhelming majority of people may not even need a treatment and will just recover.

Chinese have been lying about their death toll from Covid19. Deaths in Wuhan alone could be 40,000.

Total UK deaths higher than figures released daily by government, new stats reveal
Difference in death figures due to recording of coronavirus-related fatalities outside hospitals

The UK death toll from coronavirus has been revealed to be higher than previously reported following the release of statistics for the number of people who have died outside of hospital with Covid-19.

Figures released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed 210 deaths involving Covid-19 had occurred in England and Wales by 20 March, up from the 170 deaths reported by the government at the time – an increase of more than 20 per cent.


Statistics released by the government had previously shown the number of deaths in hospitals related to the virus but not included deaths in the wider community, such as care homes.

The ONS looked at deaths registered in England and Wales where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, including in combination with other health conditions.


The difference with death figures published by NHS England and Public Health Wales was due to different methods of counting and reporting, the organisation said.

New advice for safe funerals after discussions with faith leaders
Public Health England has published new guidance to ensure funerals are conducted safely, consistent with social distancing principles.

Published 31 March 2020
From:
Public Health England

Faith leaders have been consulted and worked with PHE to ensure that communities, the funeral industry and the NHS are protected.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease and can be transmitted when large groups of people congregate. However, with certain precautions funerals should continue to take place.

To help reduce the risk of spreading the infection, funeral directors and faith leaders are advised to restrict the number of mourners who attend funerals, so a safe distance of at least 2 metres (3 steps) can be maintained between individuals. Only members of the deceased person’s household or close family members should attend funerals. Any individual displaying symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend. Those who do attend will need to adhere to social distancing at all times, including when travelling to and from the funeral.

In addition, the guidance advises that since there is a small but real risk of transmission from the body of a deceased person, mourners are strongly advised not to take part in any rituals or practices that bring them into close contact with the body of a person who has died from or with symptoms of COVID-19. Practices that involve close personal contact with the deceased should only be carried out using the correct personal protective equipment (PPE).

Professor Paul Cosford CB, Emeritus Medical Director, Public Health England, said:

Losing a loved one is a sad and distressing experience and funerals are important and personal. During this very difficult time for the country, our aim is to protect the most vulnerable from the spread of coronavirus.

We are encouraging all mourners to practise social distancing at funerals for the time being. This sadly means limiting the number of mourners to immediate households and closest family members.

Professor Jim McManus, Director of Public Health for Hertfordshire, said:

It is natural to wish to be with people we love and have lost in death. It may be felt as an additional cruelty that such physical closeness, while providing solace for our loss, may spread the virus still further. Only skilled and sensitive local care can help console people through such compound pain and loss.

Mohamed Omer, board member of Gardens of Peace, said:

We welcome the new guidance from PHE and would like to reiterate that it is essential that we maintain social distancing at all times, including at funerals. We should also severely curtail the numbers who attend the funerals so as to ensure that staff working at burial sites and others are protected. If circumstances dictate then we should contemplate, as hard as it may seem, no attendees at funeral time.

It is also welcoming to note that we can perform our ritual wash as long as we observe the necessary precautions of wearing the right PPE and follow the process included in this guideline. It is hoped that there will be uniformity now in the whole system so that there is no confusion and conflicting reports on the risk of handling a COVID-19 deceased person.

People left in shock after White House lists '100,000 to 240,000 coronavirus deaths' as 'goals'

During Tuesday's press briefing at the White House, Donald Trump's team painted a stark projection of what they seeing the end death toll 'goal' for the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the White House Coronavirus Task Force coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx, in a worst-case scenario the country could be looking at 1.5 million to 240 million deaths, if there is no intervention whatsoever.

However, if people follow the hygiene and self-isolation guidelines, then they believe that the death toll could peak between 100,000 and 240,000, which is still a remarkable number but significantly less than what could have happened if there were no precautions taken at all.



While this news will be sobering to many who read it, there is an air of contention around the use of the word 'goals' in the presentation, as if anything close to these numbers will be deemed as a success.

Surely something like 'projection' or 'forecast' would have been more suitable in the circumstances.

Jazakallah Khairan Katheerah.

I am sort of feeling like Al-Zayn who wrote on FB :

I'm just following everyones posts 👀, three groups so far:

Some are doing Tawakkultu Alal NHS.

Some are doing Amantu Bi 'l-Conspiracies.

Whilst other are picking on the poorer Muslim nations and doing Tahdhir for not abandoning Salat 'l-Congregation.

Just observing for now and letting the dust settle.

When we are taught to respect and look after our elders. Disheartening reading the following article. May Allah guide humankind Aameen

Coronavirus: GP surgery tells severely ill patients attempts will not be made to save them if they have Covid-19

Patients with severe illnesses told to complete 'do not resuscitate' forms so that 'scarce ambulance resources can be targeted to the young and fit who have a greater chance of surviving the infection'

Severely ill patients have been told by their GP surgery that they will not be offered a ventilator bed if they become ill with coronavirus so that resources can be “targeted to the young and fit who have a greater chance of surviving the infection”.

Llynfi Surgery in Maesteg, South Wales, reportedly sent out letters to a “small number of patients” recommending they complete “do not resuscitate” forms in case their health deteriorated after contracting coronavirus.
