As with every major crisis, Covid requires its own command centre, the situation room which receives reports from the field and coordinates an emphatic response. So, what do we know about the Covid 19 operational headquarters?
Is it a hive of focussed activity? Is it the place where cutting edge science informs cohesive administration? Does a fully functioning command centre even exist? What are the essential requirements for a successful command and control operation? First, of course, you need some strategic objectives Next you will define a series of tactical objectives, each of which will contribute to the desired strategic outcome.
Intelligence will be essential — information, data analysis and data interpretation. Our control room will also be the place where people balance difficult choices. Standing ready will be the team who draw up the operational plans and ensure their implementation. What are the strategic objectives of the putative Covid 19 Command Centre?
These have not been set out in any Government document. Our only sources are the statements made by Ministers and their advisors. In fact, the only true strategic objective held up to scrutiny at successive press conferences is: preventing the NHS from being overwhelmed. Now there can be no doubt that preventing the NHS from being overwhelmed is a vital strategic objective. If we allowed the healthcare system to collapse under the weight of coronavirus cases it would catastrophic not just for people who become very ill with the virus but also for the tens of thousands who become seriously ill each month with other conditions.
For most people, protecting the functioning of the NHS would top a list of strategic objectives. But the issue does not arise because this is a list of just one. The belated decision to institute the clampdown measures on March 23 rd was taken primarily to keep hospital admissions at a sustainable level. Little consideration was given as to how to ease the burden of the virus in other parts of the care sector.
Of course, as an indirect benefit from the March 23rd restrictions there will be a considerable reduction in the potential number of deaths during the period of clampdown.
But the benefit will be a time limited unless steps are also taken to reduce the number of deaths in the period following the relaxation of restrictions. It is this uncertainty that underlies the increasing demand for answers about the so-called exit strategy.
Perhaps the number of confirmed cases is meant as some sort of proxy for hospital admissions. But these data provide little insight into how hospital resources are actually being utilised.
And the Imperial College team have been inundated by requests for their source code and detail of their assumptions to allow other groups the opportunity to second-guess their work. Should we be concerned? Or can we ignore these dissenting voices?In a room without a view Lots of time, nothing to do I sit, watch the days go by I don't need to wonder why CHORUS In a room without a view Lots of time, nothing to do In a room without a view, without you This room is the perfect size And it never tells me lies Many pleasant memories All .
