UK has not breached our ICU capacity once so the higher death rate vs Germany is due to:

◽ Higher infection rate
◽ Different demographics
◽ Environmental factors
◽ Existing health issues like obesity

I would suggest a bit of all of them but mainly infection due to London
Or and I'll throw this in as Germany is "miscounting"

I've heard both sides of this so have no view
