I hope Boris Johnson comes out of this okay,however one thing is certain that after this
is all said and done and we emerge from our homes the majority of us will be sporting Boris Johnson's hair style.

I'm way past that. My hair was hermit hippy level long before we went into isolation.

I definitely know firsthand (via my son) that you can be in ICU without being on a ventilator. It sounds like Johnson is receiving oxygen and is stable but serious condition.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/07/uk/bo...ntl/index.html

Being in ICU may just mean they need to monitor his vitals. My guess is he’s extremely ill but that doesn’t mean he’s in any immediate danger.

I was thinking more of a John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, personally. Related: I also may need a divorce lawyer though!

Or Hulk Hogan's, depending how follicly blessed or not you are..

And RE: Boris, that's crazy how quickly that happened, he was tweeting just several hours before that news about how he was just going to the hospital for precautionary measures. Did it escalate that fast? Or does that just kind of confirm a member of his staff operates his Twitter handle

I had a haircut right before the barbers closed. I look good, and will do so for a couple of months still.

Oh, yikes.

After the hobby of enjoying car racing compromised his career of rocking hard for the benefit of everyone who likes to rock, I would hate to see that.

Some people liked their SARS show in Toronto better than the Stones.

Glad to hear Boris is better. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone

Is that the IMHE University of Washington one? I'd be kind of skeptical of anything they're putting out. Their model was updated for Italy a day or two ago and predicted 335 deaths today; the real number was 70% higher at 570. For Spain they predicted 372 deaths on the 9th and 304 today. The actual numbers were more than double the estimates at 655 on the 9th and 634 today. If their model is that far off 1-2 days into the future it's essentially worthless.

They're also projecting ~50 deaths per day in Italy 10 days from now; cutting daily deaths by 90% in 10 days seems hopelessly optimistic
