Today's death figures look good - from the point of view of a statistician.
UK first started to deviate from the Italy curve (Italy+14) 4 days ago. Now it is looking like a genuine thing, rather than random noise.
These are significantly lower than would have been expected from an exponential curve. Why? We can only speculate at the moment. However:
Average time from infection to death ~18 days (reference lost, sorry)
What were you doing 18 days ago? Most likely taking significant care. 1/2
