Quote from: zoony on March 25, 2020, 11:33:40 amA lot better system in operation at the Bridgnorth branch of Sainsburys this morning. They were letting a certain amount in, and then any others were only allowed in when somebody came out. Everyone keeping their distances while queuing for the tills, and to get in. Some shelves were noticeably bare, but we were still able to get a lot of items today that were just not available at the Kidderminster branch on Saturday. Wendy made me wipe my hands and the car steering wheel with antiseptic wipes when we came out, but it's hard to get used to these new measures. We've got to though.
Quote from: Slim on March 24, 2020, 00:56:54 amNo, rufus. What you say is as wrong as it was last time, and no doubt will be next time. The government may have reacted to new information and circumstances as any government would in an unpredictable and dynamic situation, but it has timed the steps and measures it has taken carefully and properly on all available evidence at the time it was available. It has taken advice from behavioural scientists who know more about their discipline than you do, it has made no u-turns, and I have been extremely impressed by, and grateful for, the government's very assured handling of this crisis.I think possibly the most frankly ridiculous thing you said there is that the "government announced herd immunity". You're far more interested in sensationalist guff in the left wing press I know and you won't bother to read the following and actually learn something, but for the benefit of others who might want to understand this a little better, this was Matt Hancock's response to the drivel that was going around over a week ago:https://www.gov.uk/government/news/health-secretary-matt-hancocks-sunday-telegraph-op-edWe have a plan, based on the expertise of world-leading scientists. Herd immunity is not a part of it. That is a scientific concept, not a goal or a strategy. Our goal is to protect life from this virus, our strategy is to protect the most vulnerable and protect the NHS through contain, delay, research and mitigate.We are working through our clear action plan. Like all our decisions, the plan is based on the bedrock of the science, with maximum transparency. We will do the right thing at the right time, based on the best available science.To protect life, we must protect the vulnerable, and protect the NHS and flatten the curve.From the moment coronavirus emerged, we have followed those goals.We have acted to contain the spread of the virus so far. We have carried out some of the highest number of tests in Europe, our surveillance testing is among the most sophisticated in the world and the UK's plans for the rapid response to and mitigation of the spread of an epidemic are ranked number one above any other country by the Global Health Security Index.I'm typing this to defend vulnerable people from misinformation in a crisis. Stop doing it.
Quote from: rufus the dawg on March 26, 2020, 01:48:35 amMy eldest step daughter is self isolating. She thinks she's had CV19 because my sister in law is a front line doctor and went through her symptoms. She will go back to school roster next week to cover the kids that can not stay at home because the schools are closed. Shes not been tested.My youngest step daughter is a speech and language therapist in a hospital and she had to self isolate for a week because she treated a patient with suspected CV19 and she became unwell. She is now back at hospital and she refused to treat CV19 patients because she did not have any PPE. She was then on a stroke ward with people with CV19 and she did have PPE. Shes not been testedMy sister in law is a front line doctor in a hospital and in her early 60s and she been told to expect to get CV19. She is very worried. She says the government have not got a clue what they are doing. And that we should be testing way more.As you can tell from above my wife is very very worried person.
Quote from: Bez on March 26, 2020, 08:23:23 amLack of PPE and testing of front line NHS staff is a real issue.Government constantly ducking the questions at the daily briefings which implies to me that there's nothing they can do about it due to lack of kit
Quote from: rufus the dawg on March 19, 2020, 12:38:59 pmIt is interesting Taiwan have hardly any cases. China have no new cases.
QuoteSouth Korea is getting tough on arrivals from overseas and demanding that they download a phone application to track potential symptoms of coronavirus or they will not be granted entry into the country.Foreigners will also have to abide by the 14-day self-quarantine rule or face deportation.The government is determined to try to keep its borders open but that comes with an element of risk.More than half of the reported 100 new Covid-19 cases on Thursday were from international arrivals. All those travelling from Europe are now being tested for coronavirus when they arrive at Incheon International Airport. Stricter entry procedures are also being applied to arrivals from the US.Even if travellers test negative for the virus, they must spend 14 days in isolation and use the application which is downloaded at the airport to record their symptoms. If they fail to use the app daily, the authorities will track them down.Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said there would be a zero-tolerance approach towards those who violated these terms of entry.Korean nationals could face legal action and foreigners will be expelled from the country.
