There's more information available from The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/society/nhs

(Which I'm passing on just FYI, with no scintilla of medical advice implied.)

Here is something interesting emerging from the UK.  So the Paediatric  Intensive Care Society issued an alert of a NHS report.  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__twitter.com_PICSociety_status_1254508725227982848&d=DwIFAg&c=RvBXVp2Kc-itN3g6r3sN0QK_zL4whPpndVxj8-bJ04M&r=vKh6XwOmjyC51IkP1OfsdjQZoWT2vpi6VZl8El8EPRI&m=oB4QfzZcQjRknaBZUkvx3r84d-zo9oQ17yu0UyzMGRQ&s=cxb9TI8-mVAHWGmsQ-jUpNHeub3k-fxZtp8TENH1W1o&e=   However, the alert can be found on the NHS group website.  However, an NHS clinical director is quoted in this report.

It is causing a firestorm in the UK because parents are freaking out. I'm sharing just as an FYI to PICU docs (not the general public) and because it is fascinating what one tweet can do.
