Re: Marcell Speculation

Ah, can't blame the fella to be honest. If I were in his boots, I'd likely do the same. All the die-hards who'd have you believe they would continue* to play for a team halfway across the world when the rest of their family wants you home need to cop on. *with offers on the table from employers clos...

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

Its estimated that the UK might have an exposure of 0.25% so far. Who estimates that? 0.25% of 67 million is 167,500 CONFIRMED, POSITIVE UK TESTS, 247,000... That's only tests done in hospitals. They don't even bother to test most care home suspected cases. Death rate is estimated to be around 1% g...

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

Probably comparable in population distribution (and certainly in death rate) to the island of Ireland. I was supposed to be in Sweden round about now as it happens. Swedish population density: 23 people/km2 ROI population density: 70 people/km2 Stockholm population density: 8,685 people/km2 Dublin ...

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

99.7 % chance of survival if you catch this dam lurgy, a lot of big girls fannies out there, let’s isolate the vulnerable not the fecking healthy. Well except that Cnut HWM, isolate him for life . Probably a bit less that 99.7% but I largely agree with that. Shield the vulnerable, practice hygiene ...

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

Chances are a vaccine will provide immunity for a finite length of time. Then you'll need a booster. Idea may be like Smallpox, roll out a vaccine worldwide and wipe the fecker out. Is that your medical opinion ? SARS 2003: Still no vaccine. MERS 2012: Still no vaccine. Herd immunity is the way out...

Name calling or trying to belittle someone isn't called for. Improve your argument or just drop it. Life is too short.
Someone with the mental capacity of Donald Trump espousing authoritatively on matters they clearly are clueless about will always get belittled by me.

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

The resident .... is of course completely ignoring the other half of how to use testing to reduce spread - contact tracing.

You don't have to be symptomatic to be tested when you were in contact with a known carrier.

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

The UK government listened to the experts and followed the science. It'll take at least 12 months before we know effective the UK response has been. Either the experts feck up by behaving like proper academics with not a pragmatic bone in their bodies or the govt feck up by not listening correctly....
