Critical to note that this is both preliminary and modelling. It is using standard procedures for this type of data analysis but final judgement must be reserved until more factual information is available. If this proves to be true however, then it also very strongly suggests that unless there is some magic in the genes of UK residents, the hype and fear whipped up around COVID-19 is indeed a manufactured scam.
Because testing regimens across the world have varied tremendously, the actual mortality and hospitalization rates of COVID-19 have been hard to pin down. But modeling by researchers at the University of Oxford could provide some welcome good news, even if the initial takeaway doesn’t seem so promising. According to a team from Oxford’s Evolutionary Ecology of Infectious Disease lab, half of the population of the United Kingdom may have already been infected with the coronavirus. If this modeling is confirmed in follow-up studies, that would mean that fewer than .01 percent of those infected require hospital treatment, with a majority showing very minor symptoms, or none at all.
