Well American Indians are a class of Russian as they came from Siberia.

The elite counties then.

SF could have stated that they would hold a commemoration when all restrictions had been removed. They could have called for people not to gather. Now some would gather anyway, but SF would have acted responsibly and the benefits of that would have been seen in better adherence to the public health measures.

They knew all this, but decided to do a Cummings anyway.

A certain number of people died with Covid who may have been very ill. That this number is in any way high is simply a reflection of the extent of infection in nursing homes.The vast majority of people who died did so because of Covid and would otherwise be alive today.
Yes they should vaccinate everyone, that will eliminate the virus.

America might not have been discovered, but setting up travel to there from Europe was an important achievement.

If you manage to follow Smurfy's logic then please explain it to the rest of us.

Sure everyone knows that St Brendan 'discovered' America. Colombus came to Ireland to research his trip. Since St Brendan likely didn't kill anyone or enslave them then his statue should go there.

Massive end of month stats coming out of Florida regarding Covid 19

March
15k cases
765 deaths
4.8% fatality

April
22k cases
1500 deaths
6.7% fatality

May
23k cases
900 deaths
4% fatality

June
85k cases
360 deaths
0.4% fatality

WOW

f**k me.  :o

You are aware people have to become infected and develop a disease before they can die and suffer severe effects from it, right?

Those 85 thousand cases from June are yet to run their course. Let's see where the death count stands in a month or six weeks.

and over 10,000 yesterday. Those sort of daily numbers will put hospitals under pressure.

I think the problems with public attendance at these games is shown by the Danish cup final where a modest crowd was admitted, but the game had to be stopped because some of the fans insisted on squeezing in together. Some people are thick and several thick people together is a bad combination.

You were one of the crew that wanted all places kept closed.
So after moving into phase 3 almost 3 weeks ago the magical R Number in the north is down to between 0.3-0.8 the lowest yet.
What do you put that down to milltown?

Far be it from me to speak for Miltown, but that is pure luck.

They could just go to that farm that supplies Croke Park and get some turf, lay it and away they go for games. There won't be a big crowd and sure they aren't even using changing rooms nowadays.

There is whataboutery everywhere on this. Indeed, much of the narrative against Michelle O’Neill is based on whataboutery - “What about people who didn’t bury their loved ones the way they would have liked to....” So, not only is there selective outrage on the actual incidents, people are selective on the whataboutery too.

Though, I agree with gallsman, they needlessly walked themselves into this. Stupid decision.

Whatever about the language used, I don't think that it is whataboutery to point out that responsible  people did the right thing. Whataboutery  arises when other people's  acting the maggot is used  as a justification for you acting the maggot.

High deaths are caused by hospitals getting overrun and nursing homes. Any place where they keep it out of nursing homes will have less deaths. And places in the southern US will benefit from experience in New England. However, the large increase in cases will mean many deaths for weeks to come.

And you can have endless whataboutery, but SF did this knowing perfectly well what would happen afterwards, but undermining the public health was worth it to them.
