serious means say you get admitted to the hospital. so 127 of the 262 got admitted to hospital. (assuming they wouldnt know "permanent disability" at 6 months in.)I kind of thought that too. But then going by the table:
That would mean serious (127) is a subset of severe (262) and then there's another subset of serious called severe serious severe (71).
serious is divided into severe 71 or life threatening 21. and we can maybe assume a not-super-severe but still hospitalized number of like 35. that's how i'm understanding the break down anyway.
you know like after tragedies and victims are in hospital they say they are "critical" or "stable" or ..well im quoting the uk ones in this iffy wiki entry (as the american ones might confuse you more)
Each National Health Service (NHS) trust has its own guidance for statements to the press. The Department of Health's code of practice has no official definitions of the standard phrases use. Terms typically used by NHS trusts include:
Critical but stable
