Coronavirus UK: Man, 47, died after refusing to call an ambulance

A ‘fit and healthy’ Welsh banker died at his home while in isolation with coronavirus symptoms – after refusing to call an ambulance for ‘being too busy with other people’.

Tim Galley, who is believed to have no underlying health issues, had to remain separate from his own

girlfriend Donna Cuthbert after he became unwell last Sunday.

His illness started with a small tickle in his throat that he developed after doing a bachelorette party on Saturday.

Britain has now seen over 9,500 confirmed coronavirus cases, with 465 deaths.

Galley, 47, decided not to go to work on Monday and started to have a fever, broken 46-year-old Cuthbert told North Wales Live.

She hadn’t been able to see him because he decided to stay alone, but Mrs. Cuthbert said that messages from him were less common.

Mister Galley’s body had to be taken from his Wrexham apartment on Tuesday by paramedics in protective clothing.

Ms. Cuthbert said, “Of course I was very worried when he got a fever, because I was concerned about the corona virus.

“But because he wanted to protect me, I couldn’t visit him,” she said.

The mother from Old Colwyn, North Wales, added: “As he got worse, I asked him to call an ambulance, but he kept saying he was fine, that he had no underlying health problems and that they are too busy with other people. ‘

Mr. Galley’s death is revealed today as:

  • Professor Neil Ferguson, one of the government’s top coronavirus advisers, said the UK epidemic will worsen before it gets better, but its peak passes at Easter;
  • Chancellor Rishi Sunak will finally unveil a coronavirus rescue operation for millions of affected self-employed workers – with signals that they can receive cash payments of up to £ 1,700 per month;
  • Mother-of-three Kayla Williams appears to have died in her flat after calling 999 and was told she was not a priority despite symptoms of coronavirus;
  • Dyson has received an order from the government of 10,000 fans to save the lives of British people affected by the corona virus, despite the fact that the tech giant never made them before;
  • The government has admitted it has no idea if the 3.5 million antibody tests tested have worked – despite a senior official saying they would be available in Boots or on Amazon within days
  • Soldiers arrived at ExCel London, which will take it to Nightingale Hospital to help fight Covid-19

Monday evening, Ms. Cuthbert sent a message to her four-year-old partner, afraid she wouldn’t see him for a few weeks because they both needed to isolate themselves.

His answer was, “Don’t be silly, of course you do.”

The coronavirus pandemic is taking its toll on the country – which is now locking as more and more Britons become infected and, tragically, die with the virus.

Kayla Williams, 36, died of suspect Covid-19 at her Peckham apartment.

Her life was cut short on Saturday when paramedics came to her address in South London.

Man Fabian Willams told the Guardian that his wife had a cough, high fever and severe chest and abdominal pain on Friday.

According to documents, she was treated as a suspected coronavirus when told to stay at home.

Chloe Middleton, a 21-year-old woman with no pre-existing medical conditions, died of the coronavirus, her family said.

She is considered the youngest victim in the UK with no underlying medical conditions.

Her mom Diane Middleton posted a heartbreaking tribute to her daughter on social media today.

Ms. Middleton, who lives in Buckinghamshire, wrote on Facebook: “To all people who think it’s just a virus, please think again from a personal experience that this so-called virus killed my 21- birthday daughter. “

A few days ago, it was announced that an 18-year-old man had also died of the virus.

Mr. Galley, who worked at M&S ​​Bank, did not answer a call from Ms. Cuthbert afterwards.

She added, “On Tuesday morning, I panicked because Tim didn’t answer my calls. I asked his neighbor to check on him because they had a key. They found him in bed.

“Paramedics came in protective gear, and I just can’t bear the thought that he was all alone.”

Ms. Cuthbert, who runs a wedding business, added that Mr. Galley was “adored by her children.”

“He just had such a huge heart and we had such a great life together.

“We were supposed to attend my daughter Danielle’s wedding, but she was also canceled because of the corona virus.

“We went on so many vacations and planned so many things. He was my future. ‘

She added, “Tim gave me so much love happiness and great times.

“He was so special to my daughter Danni and my other kids and was” pops “to Olivia and Ariyah and won’t be meeting Ryan and Maxine’s baby.”

Ms. Cuthbert said she hoped that people would take the coronavirus advice from the government and health professionals seriously.

She said, “Please, please, please all take the advice and stay inside and follow the rules that this virus is serious and take our loved ones.

“I just want everyone to stay safe and stay at home.

“Tim has taken every precaution, but this virus has nevertheless caught him, my heart has broken into small pieces.”

Does it work? UK records 43 coronavirus deaths in the last 24 hours compared to 87 yesterday … and new infections are on the decline

  • The footage shows the police scaring members of the public who are bypassing government rules
  • Police dispersed the public and took up the sun in West London’s Shepherd’s Bush
  • Groups of people were pictured enjoying good weather in part of Cheltenham on Wednesday
  • On Monday, Boris Johnson addressed the nation and ordered a closure of at least three weeks
  • Shoppers have also been pictured squeezing at supermarkets across the country
  • The Prince of Wales has tested positive and is in isolation at his home on the Balmoral estate, Scotland

The UK has registered 43 coronavirus deaths in the past 24 hours, compared to 87 on Tuesday, but the number of new infections has increased by a record high of 1,452 to 9,529, while the British continued to ignore the closure.

Twenty-eight more patients died in England, six more patients died in Scotland, five in Wales and four in Northern Ireland, bringing the total death toll to 465 in Britain.

They included a 47-year-old who had no underlying health condition. The others who died, including one 93-year-old, did have underlying health problems.

In contrast, eighty-seven infected British died the day before. Despite the death rate dropping by half, the country saw a record peak in cases on Wednesday, with 1,452 more patients known to have contracted the deadly virus, bringing the total number of cases to 9,529.

The Ministry of Health and Social Care confirmed late on Wednesday evening that a total of 97,019 people were tested with 87,490 negative. The update said that 463 people had been killed by the virus, but it was added that the data did not cover 24 hours.

The update for the previous death toll on Tuesday was at 1 p.m., so the data only covers then until 9 a.m. on Wednesday, which would explain some of the difference in the death rate if not all.

Scotland announced only two deaths on Tuesday, while Wales confirmed only one. Both countries now have 22 victims of the coronavirus.

Northern Ireland announced two more fatalities this afternoon, as well as two last night, bringing the total to seven deaths.

British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced strict closing measures on Monday to keep people on staying home and leaving the house alone for basic food, exercising once a day and essential travel to and from work (groups shown in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester)

The true extent of the outbreak is unclear because only patients in the hospital are routinely tested. The actual magnitude of the outbreak is likely to be closer to 400,000, experts have said.

Despite clear government guidelines, citizens continue to sunbathe on the second day of coronavirus closure.

Images have appeared showing police spreading Britons gathering in parks and other public places, with people gathering despite strict advice to stay home to prevent the outbreak from flooding the NHS.

In Shepherd’s Bush in West London, people enjoyed the sun, seemingly unaware of the severe restrictions imposed by the government on Monday. Police told the sun worshipers to leave and go home.

Others today enjoyed the weather in South West London’s Battersea Park, on the beach in Portsmouth and in the sea near Eastbourne, despite the prime minister urging people to stay at home.

Meanwhile, officers in Manchester today distributed groups, some of whom greeted each other with a hug, along with sun worshipers at Piccadilly Gardens. Police also used megaphones to tell people to stay at home unless absolutely necessary and said, “This is serious, we have to beat Corona.”

Professor James Naismith, director of the Rosalind Franklin Institute, University of Oxford, said, “Each of the deaths is a tragedy for the families and friends. That the number of deaths is less than yesterday is a relief.

Charles was last seen with the Queen on March 9 at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey and saw her again on March 12 - 24 hours before his doctor claimed he was infectious.

But just as the headlines of the ‘worse than Italy’ death toll had been misled and based on an over-interpretation of a single day, a lower number today is not in itself a reliable guide. Government action will take time to have an effect as well as to be confirmed and effective.

“I would urge people not to panic or celebrate based on the numbers in a single day, but we should all focus on social detachment and kindness. We have the best epidemiologists in the world, only their complex mathematical analysis of the data can tell us what happens.

“No one has ever claimed that the virus would leave seemingly healthy young people completely unaffected, the 47-year-old’s sad death confirms what the Chinese data had told us – no one is completely safe. We must all take the government’s advice on social distance, not only for the benefit of the vulnerable, but for all our interests. ‘

Earlier, Boris Johnson said the government was “ramping up” testing for coronavirus as he announced that 405,000 people have now volunteered to help vulnerable people.

He hoped that “very soon” 250,000 tests per day would be performed.

Speaking at the daily press conference within number 10, he added that he wanted to offer a “ special thank you to everyone who has now volunteered to help the NHS.

“When we launched the call last night, we hoped to get 250,000 volunteers in a few days.

“But I can tell you that in just 24 hours, 405,000 people responded to the call.

“That’s just as many volunteers in one day as the people of Coventry.”

The figure was given when the State Department announced that Steven Dick, 37, the deputy head of mission at the British Embassy in Budapest, had died after contracting the corona virus.

It comes after an expert government advisor said that NHS hospitals are expected to be able to handle about thousands of coronavirus patients even at the height of the outbreak, according to an expert government advisor.

Despite fears of a lack of beds for intensive care and absenteeism, Professor Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London told MPs yesterday that he is confident that health care will remain within limits.

That’s because of the current blockage, which could also mean that the worst outbreak in intensive care units will likely be over in two and a half to three weeks.

Assistant chief physician Dr. Jenny Harries agreed yesterday that the peak of the virus could have been completed around Easter.

Earlier this month, Professor Ferguson, a key member of the Scientific Emergency Group (Sage), released a report suggesting that more than 20,000 people could die from coronavirus.

But yesterday, he told the Commons Science and Technology Committee that the death toll could be “ significantly lower than that. ”

In even more hopeful news, Andrew Pollard, a professor of pediatric infection and immunity at the University of Oxford, who was also called up to the committee, said a vaccine could be available within six months.

It came after Prince Charles revealed today that he tested positive for the deadly disease.

The 71-year-old Prince of Wales has a ‘mild’ form of the disease and is on the Balmoral estate with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who has tested negative and has no symptoms of the virus that killed 435 people and so far 8,200 more infected in the UK.

The Queen and Philip had already traveled to Windsor Castle before the announcement of Clarence House today, after moving to the royal estate last Thursday.

A royal source said that Charles’ most conservative estimate was that the prince was contagious on March 13 – 24 hours after meeting his 93-year-old mother, the Queen, briefly.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said, “Her Majesty is in good health. The Queen follows all appropriate advice regarding her well-being ‘.

It is not known if the monarch has been tested for coronavirus, but it is said to be locked and not even close relatives can see her.

Last week, the government announced an unprecedented plan to endorse the wages of millions of workers to be made redundant as the activity dries up, but criticism has been voiced that it has done nothing for the country’s five million freelancers, contractors and other self-employed workers .

On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation, telling Britain’s 66 million people to stay at home unless they are front-line workers, don’t shop often to buy food or medicine, or help a vulnerable person.

He also said that one form of exercise was allowed every day, such as dog walking – but not sunbathing or just sitting outside.

Mr. Johnson ordered the immediate closure of all nonessential stores and threatened people with fines or even arrest if they did not “stay at home.”

The Prime Minister’s closure lasts for a minimum of three weeks and the UK’s new state of emergency is unprecedented in modern history.

The British coronavirus death toll was 437 on Wednesday with more than 8,200 cases.

Mark Foran took to Twitter to pay tribute to his father, one of those who passed away yesterday.

“After a cerebral hemorrhage in November and since he fought in the hospital for survival, he was diagnosed with Covid-19 last week, and today he sadly passed away. Rest In Peace Dad x ‘

The humanitarian costs of the pandemic continue to rise worldwide, as more than 415,000 people are infected with the deadly disease and more than 18,000 are killed.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles has tested positive for coronavirus and isolates himself in his home on the Balmoral estate, it was revealed today.

The 71-year-old Prince of Wales has a ‘mild’ form of the disease and is with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who has tested negative and has no symptoms of the virus, which has killed 435 people and has 8,000 more infected in the UK so far.

A royal source said that Charles’ most conservative estimate was that the prince was contagious on March 13 – 24 hours after meeting his 93-year-old mother, the Queen, briefly.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said, “Her Majesty is in good health. The Queen follows all appropriate advice regarding her well-being ‘.

Shoppers have also been pictured squeezing together in supermarkets on Wednesday morning, ignoring social distance rules and raising fears that stores could become the new super spreaders of coronavirus.

According to government guidelines, people are supposed to stay 6 ft apart if they have to go outside, but customers from various supermarkets across the UK this morning broke the rules while stocking essentials.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered the British to stay at home on Monday to halt the spread of the virus, curbing daily life without precedent in peacetime.

However, people are still allowed to leave their homes to shop for basic necessities, flooding supermarkets with customers and fearing that they will become hotbeds of the virus.

Several major chains are now introducing new measures to try to strengthen social distance and protect personnel.

Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi, Iceland and Sainsbury’s have brought in protective screens for staff, and Waitrose – which introduces ‘two-meter marshalls’ that will manage queues outside stores – has ordered screens and visors for its employees.

Waitrose calls its policy “a series of strong new measures” to help its customers shop safely.

The company said that the number of customers allowed at any one time will be limited so social distance can be perceived, and a one-on-one policy will be pursued when the store is judged to be full is.

Customers coming to Waitrose will see marshals that will help manage queues outside stores and remind people if necessary to respect the two-meter social distance rule.

Waitrose will also dedicate opening hours to older and vulnerable customers and those who care for them, while NHS staff will continue to have priority during checkout.

There will also be ‘safe distance’ floor signage, protective screens at the checkouts and extra security.

Morrisons, who has already posted perspex screens, is introducing signage in stores to support social distance, including floor stickers, posters and banners that will ask customers to keep a trolley distance apart, and provide guidance on where to wait and where to queue .

Asda has also announced similar measures, saying it will introduce floor markings and directional barriers to help keep customers away and install perspex screens at checkouts.

Hand sanitizer is available for customers to use on entry and exit.

A number of self-service machines will also be closed to enforce the two-meter rule, a spokesperson told MailOnline.

Sainsbury’s said it ‘works through the details’, but expects to limit the number of people allowed to be in stores at any time, and will also introduce outside barriers to ensure people queue at a safe distance to waiting to get in.

The grocery store said it will also have memories of keeping two meters apart in stores, screens at manned checkouts, and closing every other payment point to keep people apart.

Tuesday afternoon, Marks & Spencer said that the 31 outlet stores that only sell clothing and household items will be temporarily closed.

M&S said that when customers arrive at their food stores, they will see a ‘greeter’ who will ensure that the number of customers in the store is managed at all times.

Lombardy, Italy, replaced Wuhan in China, as the worst-hit region in the world, with authorities in the European country announcing that 743 people had died in the country on Tuesday, bringing the total number of deaths to 6,820.

The Italian authorities believe that some of the restrictive measures taken may have an effect after the number of officially registered new infections has risen by just eight percent, the same rate as Monday – the lowest level since Italy first died on February 21.

The trajectory of the rapidly spreading virus shows that Madrid and London could become the next hot spots of the disease, with deaths now doubling every two days in their respective capitals.

In the UK, 87 more patients died overnight in England, including 21 at one NHS trust in London. The death toll in the UK has nearly increased six-fold in a week, with just 71 fatalities last Tuesday.

And in Spain, the armed forces have asked NATO for humanitarian aid to fight the new coronavirus, as the national death toll reached 2,700 and infections rose to 40,000.

The Madrid region was hit hardest by the epidemic with 12,352 infections – just under a third of the total – and 1,535 deaths, or 57 percent of the national figure.

Outside of Europe, in the United States, the death toll has soared quite slowly so far compared to other countries, but the trajectory for the New York death curve is much steeper, suggesting it could overtake Madrid.

More than 12,000 people have tested positive in the city and 125 have died. A state-wide lockdown came into effect on Sunday evening.
