Topical review on the epidemic in Britain, with a number of observations that relate to the cardiothoracic surgeons and all healthcare professionals:

-The assertion that the National Health Service in Britain was overrun PRIOR to the pandemic.

-The assertion that acute angina is now being undertreated.

-Perhaps most worryingly, the assumed increase in non-COVID positive deaths in Scotland.

In the light of the government poised to review the lockdown in an attempt to balance the prevention of another viral infestation versus the conceivable grave financial implications here in the UK and worldwide, it is interesting to see their take on the financial toll on patients.
