  3. So the eagerly anticipated ‘Heinsberg study’ results have been released this morning. Heinsberg is the ‘German Wuhan’ where they have a huge outbreak of cases in late February. The key findings have been: - Unsurprisingly they’ve found that viral exposure can predict severity. Hence why there’s a higher death rate in healthcare staff. PPE should be the number 1 priority for everyone. - The estimated infection fatality rate is 0.3% which would mean it is 3x deadlier than the flu. - 15% of their study population (1500) have antibodies, where they’d only estimat

  8. All of a sudden everyone was an expert and saw it coming. You only need to read the start of this thread to understand the general sentiment. EVERYONE who dismissed the signs and failed to understand the seriousness of what was unravelling is just as guilty. You didn't need to be told, you could have took your own precautions. People were still going on holiday in march, attending big gatherings and neglecting hygiene. Almost everyone was ill prepared, but as usual are now looking for someone to blame for it. The government at the time got a lot

  10. We see it very differently then. Everybody must know that this will take weeks of lockdown. The government aren't being indecisive, they are not going to change anything next week, they are keeping the lockdown rolling weekly because if they said another three weeks or even six weeks, people might find it just too much and find their resolve weakening. That's the way I see it anyway and it makes sense to me.

  11. It’s not all of a sudden everyone was an expert and saw it coming. I have no doubt China were very sparing with the truth about this but there’s a difference between it coming into the public’s conscience in March and senior scientists flagging it to the government in January. And yes, at that point they were the experts and they did see it coming! What do we elect governments to do? Because in my book it’s to lead us with solid strategy and protect the people. People didn’t have access to a community of specialists with the insight they had or the ability to get the equipment that

Just google Heinsberg and articles will appear. Update: https://www.bccourier.com/these-are-the-first-lessons-of-the-heinsberg-study/ An English summary. It is encouraging, this is one of the first 'antibody' tests that have been conducted on large numbers of people (500 not the 1500 I posted earlier). There are also studies from Denmark reporting similar findings and might be an

  15. I imagine that they don't want to put too daunting a time frame on it and weaken people's motivation. Psychologically, weekly reviews make sense to me. You've really got to stop finding fault for the sake of it.

  17. My brother has been helping set up a Farm Foods hamper delivery service for the last few weeks. He delivered one to a huge house last Friday and Brendan opened the door to collect it. My brother said he was really nice bloke and ended up having a 20 mins conversation, at distance obviously! Brendan was asking about business plans of the delivery service and various other bits, sounds like a top fella! My brother was buzzing for the rest of the day. Pointless bit of info but 🤷🏼‍♂️ ...

  19. This is a pointless exercise. Clearly you think the answer to all 3 is b despite having moulded the questions to suit you and no evidence about any of it. None of the groups are necessarily helped or hindered. What we can say is that applying pressure forces action, we have seen that multiple times within this very episode.

  20. A minority of people have been doing that throughout, there's no correlation between that and frontline workers calling for action and provision where it is needed. The vast majority are complying with the instructions and have done so throughout. The government's message on social distancing is one facet of this situation and it is separate to this. Dismissing people's concerns out of hand as a witch hunt because it's inconvenient is far more damaging.

  21. To be fair, the bad guys would be heavily outnumbered. We have seen pictures and videos in the news of parks being populated but they are far outweighed by the millions and millions of people who are behaving and sticking by the rules as they should be.

  24. Do people honestly think the lockdown is going to be lifted? It'd completely undo any positive influence the current lockdown rules have had. It's not a case of 'oh the numbers are flattening, let's get back to it, and go down the pub.' Seems a lot of media are also desperate to adhere to the idea we can just switch this off and all is well again. Until there's better testing, and we can utilise something similar to S Korea with combined use of tech and testing, this is reality. It's only been a few weeks, and people seem to think it's over. I get it, people want to

  25. I work in a construction related field too (albeit classed as an "essential worker" as it is all railway connected) but most construction firms are following specific industry guidance where all works are risk assessed for social distancing and other criteria. With a little invention most tasks can be completed, although some will require use of additional PPE or deferring. On our sites we are using stretchers or have knocked up arrangements with poles and planks etc to carry materials and items that require two people lifting to maintain social distancing. The main issues are those jobs that

  29. And where has this happened? If things are going wrong you raise the alarm during, not after the event. You examine what happened after the event, but that is something different. If your house was on fire would you watch it burn down and wait to examine the ashes? Or would you call the fire brigade?

  30. Idea the Lockdown is going to be lifted and everything will reopen again immediately is nonsense anyway. Will be months before we see any sort of normality I’d imagine. Half the boozers and shops that shut will probably never reopen again anyway. Going to be a completely different world on the other side of this.

  33. You know, the money involved in football is obscene. Totally and utterly obscene. But the players are just young lads being offered ridiculous money to play a game we'd all love to have played professionally. There's a lot of charitable work that goes on and they should be applauded for this.

  34. Not in the least. I dislike their government immensely and I sincerely hope that a more democratic alternative is in their future - and I'd hope most folks would be the same. I've made that clear in the past and I'll do so again here. But at the same time, unqualified opinions that they alone are responsible for the current situation, whether on here out of lack of knowledge or by someone like Trump in order to whip up his voter base into a they're-to-blame-go-get-them frenzy, are erroneous and should be challenged as such - they do no favours to the citizens of those countries out

  36. Realistically I couldn't give a shit what others think. Footballers have been scapegoats here. Why should the Footballers especially of Premier League clubs take paycuts to fund other staff? The actual clubs themselves make enough to fund staff and pay them through this. Also if players did take a paycut think of the tax/national insurance contributions that would be lost. Why havent bankers, multi millionaires or billionaires been targeted? As I said Footballers are a scapegoat. Why isnt the NHS funded more so it would never have come to this? I do feel

  37. What evidence do you have that either of those things are enacted by NHS workers pointing out that they aren't adequately protected? If anything you could argue it works the other way - public panic forces the government into quicker action.

Forget your Boris/Churchill caricature ‘journalism’ and the PR-machine from his mates in the media that will kick into full swing from here onwards unless figures reach an absolutely catastrophic level, this is a methodical and articulate assessment of how we got to this point and, frankly, the failings that have been made along the way. When this all dies down, some serious questions need asking. About the failure to see the warning signs and raise the risk warning level, abou
