38,000 cases with 3600 deaths is like absurdly high.

And it's not just elderly/vulnerable people either. We've had 13 year old boys, 30 year old healthy men and women

Herd immunity

They didn’t prepare properly or think it would come to their country until it was too late

Events like Cheltenham and Liverpool v atletico, among other football matches and sporting occasions went ahead well into March 

Even still they haven’t closed public transport or the London Underground 

Lack of beds and PPE In the hospitals after years of Tory government 

Just some of the reasons 

Only one of those reasons answers the question why the %’s of deaths / cases is deemed higher.

But I get your point, the UK will have a high numbers of cases that could/can be avoided.

I went to the shops today and the area was more busy than London city centre.

Cheltenham, The Tube etc
The tube is the main reason, but the London Underground is a factor too.

just for comparison sake here are the death rates per 1 million of population as it stands today
Italy 243
Spain 235
France 100
UK 53
Ireland 24
USA 21
China 2

Obviously this is based on reported cases and why you can’t take any figure at face value but a good indictor all the same

We will beat England on away deaths.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
