Nearly 100 Care Homes In The UK Have Reported Coro
Nearly 100 Care Homes In The UK Have Reported Coronavirus Outbreaks In The Last 24 Hours - BuzzFeed
The UK government has warned that the coronavirus lockdown will remain in place in the coming weeks, as deaths continue to rise across the country.
The chief medical officer for England, Chris Whitty, has revealed that 13.5% of care homes in the UK have so far reported coronavirus outbreaks, including 92 care homes in the last 24 hours alone. The revelation came as the government faced questions at its press conference on why daily death figures did not include those from outside hospitals, particularly from care homes where many elderly and vulnerable people were dying from the virus. Whitty said the Office for National Statistics published figures on deaths from outside hospitals but acknowledged these were "delayed by days" and insisted the government was "trying to shorten that period". The latest statistics were for the week ending March 27. Some 11,329 people with coronavirus have so far died in UK hospitals as of 5pm on Sunday, according to the latest government figures released by the Department of Health and Social Care. The UK government has also warned that the lockdown will remain in place in the coming weeks, as deaths continue to rise across the country. Chief scientific adviser Patrick Vallance said on Monday that the UK had not yet reached its peak death rate but suggested this could happen in a few days' time, followed by a "plateau" in deaths lasting two to three weeks. It means the UK is unlikely to see an easing in strict social distancing measures until mid-May at the earliest. Prime minister Boris Johnson, who is recovering after being hospitalised with coronavirus himself, announced the UK lockdown on March 23. People are only allowed to leave their homes for one of four reasons: to shop for basic necessities, to take one form of exercise a day, for any medical need, such as providing care for a vulnerable person, or to travel to and from work "if absolutely necessary".
WhatsApp has rolled out the restriction of single chat forwards for viral messages - Android Police
Misinformation spreads faster than facts these days. The juicier and the more outrageous a story is, the more likely it is to run around social networks
This story was originally published 2020/04/07 6:41am PDTon Apr 7, 2020 and last updated 2020/04/13 5:24am PDTApr 13, 2020. Misinformation spreads faster than facts these days. The juicier and the more outrageous a story is, the more likely it is to run around social networks and messaging apps like wildfire, so even uncle Gerard whom you haven't heard from in two years ends up sending it to you so you "know better." Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, and every app with a large number of users suffers from this and has been taking measures to combat this. WhatsApp is now taking a more drastic measure to stop the spread of viral messages by prohibiting you from forwarding them in bulk. The change only affects frequently forwarded messages on the app and will restrict sharing to one chat at a time. Previously, WhatsApp lowered the limit from 20 chats to 5 in early 2019, and that is still valid for regular messages. But for viral ones, it will be narrowed down to one. If you want to send the message to multiple persons and groups, you'll need to select, tap forward, and choose a new chat multiple times. Sure, that won't stop anyone from spreading misinformation if they're hellbent on doing so, but it'll make it really tedious and discourage most users from doing so repeatedly. Affected messages are frequently forwarded ones, which are easily distinguished by the double arrow before the Forwarded label on top of them. These texts, images, videos, and voice notes, likely originated outside of your close network and were sent multiple times from one person to another until they reached you. Not all of them are bad WhatsApp admits that there are memes, funny videos, and useful information being sent this way but users have been recently overwhelmed by forwards, especially ones with wrong information, and the company hopes to curb that. The top pic is a regular forward, the bottom one has the double arrows and is frequently forwarded. This extreme measure is one of many that WhatsApp is taking to combat coronavirus misinformation. It's still rolling out and isn't live for us yet. Update 1: 2020/04/13 5:28am PDT by Rita El KhouryLive The restriction is now live in WhatsApp, on both the stable (v2.20.108) and beta (v2.20.122) channels. As expected, this doesn't affect regular messages (still limited to five at a time), just frequently forwarded ones. Thanks, Moshe!
