Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Perhaps they might like to explain why people have only just started dying of it/being admitted with pneumonia. There is a lot of informed critiques of this study out on the web if you are prepared to look.

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

For 500,000, read 15,000. And listen to Radio 4 More or Less: Sir David Speigelhalter NOW ON explaining that covid19 will be broadly in line with flu this year. You can almost hear him thinking on his feet, but he's coming round to reality at last. I listened to all of what he said, apparently you ...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

People really need to calm down (and carry on) to a mind state of responsible care rather than swivel-eyed panic. You seem to think that people are panicking when all they are doing is advocating taking the measures seriously. (& you think posting about the military shooting people for fun is c...

& as I said, the retailers are working to increase their capacity. They aren't there yet, so we are where we are.

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Why can I visit a supermarket? That's madness! Why not have a "click and collect" system in place for them? Make an online order, get an allotted pickup time and go and get it. Are you paying any sort of attention at all? The supermarkets are overwhelmed by the demand. Yes they are franti...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Will you be making a list of any neighbours you spot daring to have a bike ride and a run in any 24 hour period? This may be difficult to keep track of, especially if you have lots of neighbours of the exercising ilk. Each one may need to be allocated to a different 24 hour period too! Perhaps you ...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

And by the way. If you think this is bad. Have a look to Italy, France and Spain to see what awaits you. They also had problems with people not taking this seriously. Have a glance at the regulations now in force.

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Plus going for a run isn't bending the rules, why do you think it is? Going for a run then going out for exercise on a bike is How about I do 3 miles running instead of 6 and then 3 miles on my bike? How about you just obey the instructions which are designed to save people’s lives and stop thinkin...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

I amazed on an island of 60 million people quite how many people have popped up on the internet to say their particular part of it is completely deserted. Everyone can think up a reason why this shouldn't aply to them. If that happens.. more people die. Your choice Well I ran today and passed maybe...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

The more people who comply with the instructions, the fewer people die. It’s quite simple. I'm pretty confident that running/cycling in places where there are no other people doesn't propagate the virus. I'll be out for my usual lunch time run tomoz. Interestingly apparently domestic violence is bo...

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

Worldometer has the UK having 20 critical cases at the moment (the UK has 4000 ICU beds). If anyone can sort these statistics out I would be grateful:

That 20 figure has been the same for well over a week. They just aren't updating it for the UK

Re: Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) - just how serious?

How will they know you've only had one? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52012432 Nothing in there about about how they'd know you'd only had one form of exercise... I might go for a run then get the bike out - that's the sort of rebel I am. The more people who comply with the instructions, the fewer ...
