Someone recently posted about the K rate, what is it? Can't find anything about it.

A disgrace Tommy. Carehomes should have been the first things to be sorted. A travesty
Now if this virus was to hit everyone here and nobody knew what was going on
We knew 4 weeks out and had time to prepare. It was the old and vulnerable that this virus attacked the most. Now the most sensible thing to do in this scenario would be to go straight to old peopleís homes. What a mess they have made. Heads should role after this they really should.

Look at Boris' 5 targets? See Care home deaths mentioned in there, no?

To prevent the NHS being overrun as they saw it, they (and it seems to have also been the case in the Rep, let alone Scotland, Wales and here) emptied as many out of hospital wards into Care homes without checking whether these people had Covid 19 or not. The Care homes had no option but to take them as some that questioned this decision were threatened with having their budgets cut and also GP's were informed to only offer palliative care.
There were rumours of families seeing their parents medical notes with DNR orders on them that they knew nothing about, if that is true then people in high positions should do time but we all know that won't happen.

Absolute disgrace and hopefully the truth will come out over time.

The great cull has happened in front of our very eyes.

That's what I would describe it as too. A cull of the older generation. Heads should roll and prosecutions should be made but none of it will happen >:(

It's not that it was incompetence or a lack of time to prepare. They were left for dead. (I don't know enough about what happened in the south to know if it was the same but in the Uk it certainly looks that way). Not only left for dead but proper PPE wasn't even available for the care workers et so they weren't even given decent protection in the first place.

I always remember watching Galway Tipp from releatively close to the pitch in Croke park about 2010/2011 and Eoin Kelly was playing for Tipp in his prime. There was a boy Adrian (maybe Brody) playing wing half back for Galway and he was having a stinker of a game. Eoin Kelly saw this after a few balls went in and in front of the guys face he started shouting to the Tipp boy marking him f**king destroy him he's f**king useless into the guys face. I thought looking at him he was obviously ruthless etc however to be honest there's no harm in what he did. He wanted to win and that was the weak link where they were going to exploit Galway.(I think he comes across as an alright sort too Kelly)

The semantics are very important when it comes to this >:(

I was watching a bit on the BBC news this morning interviewing a care home manager where there have been a number of deaths (in England). It is absolutely shameful how these older people have been treated. They were left to die and given no chance whatsoever. What happened when someone tested positive the manager was asked? Nothing she said. There should be serious prosecutions for this. The hospitals weren't even in dire straits in a lot of cases and these people could have been helped and I'm sure while not everyone who tested positive would have lived some would have. They just wrote them off. It's absolutely horrendous.

More championship games than league games is a surprising stat.

I'd add 5 or so zeroes on there and still should be ok for it.

That's an awful mess they have created.

Thankfully we are going the right direction on this island. Hopefully some sense of normality will start to appear or at least be on the horizon soon.

The bigger one for me is the law here. You can't go round fining people and then this guy just does what he wants. How then can the law actually enforce fines?

I know there's all this shite about it being anti brexiteers etc etc but Cummings doing this breaks so many things.

Why can't they fine him too?

I would assume they can but have they?

It's just 2 or 3 years ;D

Joke. Should be a month or two. Best way to start is keep it mostly aerobic. (I would say no harm in the odd parkrun or whatever but not much chance of that for a while).

Build up aerobically first with slow runs and stretch a good bit too. Itís tough at the beginning with running but starting slow helps.

I read this earlier wondering who the hell kenny was until I saw an article on Lennyís comments.

Inter county really should not come back first. Makes no sense.

No deaths reported here (up north) today at all. That is good progress too.
