It's on that site somewhere, I can't find it now but it was there yesterday
Cheers Tready, I should have been more specific, in the news that call out new cases and deaths, they skip over the ICU piece.

Also I think a trending of the ICU admissions over the number of ICU beds available would be very telling.

It might just help double down and sustain social distancing. Everyone is getting cabin fever and the weather is getting better and better so every encouragement is needed.

Some quotes from The Economist on the impact of crisis:

A very rough guess is that, without a campaign of social distancing, between 25% and 80% of a typical population will be infected. Of these, perhaps 4.4% will be seriously sick and a third of those will need intensive care.

By some estimates, nearly 1m Americans may need mechanical ventilation at the peak of the country’s covid-19 epidemic. And the number of potentially critically ill patients who need ventilating could be much higher.

....

Morgan Stanley predicts that gdp will fall by 8% year-on-year in the second quarter and unemployment will rise to 12.8%, compared with just 3.5% in February.

[In the US] Small businesses employ 52% of private-sector workers. Half have a cash buffer of less than one month, by one estimate.

Most analysts think that China’s economy shrank in the first three months of 2020, perhaps by as much as 10%. The last time it contracted was more than four decades ago, at the end of the Cultural Revolution, according to official data.
...

More than 50 governments have restricted exports of medical supplies, 33 of which acted after the beginning of March.

Tourism has been crushed—it accounts for 8% of global services trade.

Flight cancellations have seen the cost of air freight, much of which goes in the belly of passenger jets, soar. Vaughn Moore of ait Worldwide Logistics, a freight-forwarding company, reports that rates have risen from $2-3 per kilo to $9-11, which for some goods is prohibitively expensive.

...

In America Congress is poised to pass a package worth almost $2trn, 10% of gdp, twice what was promised in 2007-09. Credit guarantees by Britain, France and other countries are worth 15% of GDP.

So many unemployment claims are being filed in Ohio that the state website has crashed.

Yet $1,200 is not much help for a [American] laid-off worker. The jobless will rely on the bill’s temporary expansion of unemployment insurance benefits by $600 per week. Yet America cannot construct an adequate social safety-net overnight. For example, 8.5% of Americans lack health insurance.

...

India has at most 40,000 or so working ventilators, equipment that has proved life-saving for the most severely affected covid-19 patients. In contrast America, with a quarter as many people, has four times as many functioning ones.

China, for instance, can muster 18 doctors and 42 hospital beds per 10,000 people, according to the World Health Organisation. India has just eight doctors and seven hospital beds for the same number of people.

...

Six in ten Ugandan workers are either self-employed or help out in a family business. If people do not work they do not eat, says Steven Agaba, who lives in a poor part of Kampala, Uganda’s capital.

The welfare of a billion people depends on how governments balance saving lives from the virus while minimising economic damage in a continent where more than 400m people live on the equivalent of less than $1.90 a day. It is not at all clear how this Gordian knot can be untied.

Data are patchy, but the average American hospital may have more intensive-care beds than most African countries. Kenya has 130; Uganda 55; and Malawi about 25. In Zimbabwe there are probably even fewer in the public system, and doctors and nurses are on strike. Ventilators are scarce: Mali and Mozambique may have one per 1m people

You're coming on. Well done.

There is one missing apostrophe though.
