Bar the flu', none of the others are contagious, and all can be combated or alleviated to an extent by known medical treatments or procedures. Covid-19 is highly virulent, can be fatal, especially to those who are vulnerable or whose health is compromised, and no cure or vaccine has yet been discovered for it. The Black Plague only disappeared when enough people isolated themselves from those that carried it.

Seriously what is the hold up with opening things.

The longer the spread is diminishing, the far smaller any potential uptick after reopening - which allows time to get it contained.

Exponential growth has a cousin... exponential decay.

The objective of the lockdown to reduce the numbers greatly. Then lesser measures can keep those numbers low and if there is a second wave it starts from a low base. The SMurfy123's of this world want to relax the lockdown and proceed with muich higher numbers becasue they are too impatient to wait a week.

Not a chance he'll be sacked. The subservient rats are all over twitter defending him. Pity they didn't all congregate in a big hotel again, in say Brighton!

It seems obvious to me that the serial scaremonger Prof Neil Ferguson, with his faulty modelling, scared them into a lockdown from which they're now struggling to escape.  Given his pathetic record with previous forecasts, Ferguson should never been let near Imperial College let alone Downing Street.

It also seems obvious to me that the lockdown was a huge mistake, not least because they spent a lot of resources and time organising it when the focus should have been on PPE and basic organisation in care homes.

Now they've the worst of both words.

But surely the lockdown saved 1000's of lives?
Thats is why we are over the first peak.

No lockdown means it would keep spreading
Let's get one thing clear as day. Lockdowns save lives.

Do explain Sid. In your own words. A link to someone else's "study" and an oul graph don't really cut it. The world is full of those.
You think the raimeis you've offered on this thread "cuts it"?

This is an extremely serious virus which kills people in large numbers if left to spread unimpeded.

None of this is difficult to understand.

You still haven't explained anything.

All you have so far are buzzwords and passive-aggressive slogans like  "Are you right in the head?" and "Jesus wept".

We're all ears.

What on earth do you need explained? 

You're the person claiming lockdowns don't help stop the spread of the virus.

Yet all evidence from literally everywhere in the world says they do.

You're the person that says that the virus will go away of its own accord like a miracle.

Yet there's no evidence that this is the case.

You also said that Neil Ferguson should be in prison. That's the comment of a lunatic.

So forgive me if you I don't pay any respect to what you say.

Respect for opinions is earned, your postings here have earned none.

Respect for protecting human life in a pandemic shoulld be a given in any reasonable individual - you appear to have none.

Flaunting impunity is a key requirement for crypto-fascism and kleptocratic regimes.

They push and they push to see what they can get away with.

Cummings won't resign and he won't be sacked, and compliant, careerist, amoral access journalists will continue to parrot the Tory line at all costs.

The Tory media will likely try and flip the script in some way, and quickly.

That's exactly what has happened in the US.

There is plenty of evidence that viruses do indeed go away of their own accord, otherwise we'd never have been rid of the Spanish flu among others.

I asked you for evidence to support your "Let's get one thing clear as day. Lockdowns save lives." comment and you've produced only deflection and ad hominem.

As late as last October the WHO stated without equivocation that there is no evidence to suggest that lockdowns are effective in countering a pandemic.

Again: where is the evidence in the meantime?

You're gaslighting.

We draw scenarios of different containment measures and their impact. Results suggest that the sequence of restrictions posed to mobility and human-to-human interactions have reduced transmission by 45% (42 to 49%). Averted hospitalizations are measured by running scenarios obtained by selectively relaxing the imposed restrictions and total about 200,000 individuals (as of March 25, 2020). Although a number of assumptions need to be reexamined, like age structure in social mixing patterns and in the distribution of mobility, hospitalization, and fatality, we conclude that verifiable evidence exists to support the planning of emergency measures.

https://www.nber.org/papers/w26906

We find, using simulations with these estimates, that the lockdown of the city of Wuhan on January 23, 2020 contributed significantly to reducing the total infection cases outside of Wuhan, even with the social distancing measures later imposed by other cities. We find that the COVID-19 cases would be 64.81% higher in the 347 Chinese cities outside Hubei province, and 52.64% higher in the 16 non-Wuhan cities inside Hubei, in the counterfactual world in which the city of Wuhan were not locked down from January 23, 2020. We also find that there were substantial undocumented infection cases in the early days of the 2019-nCoV outbreak in Wuhan and other cities of Hubei province, but over time, the gap between the officially reported cases and our estimated ďactualĒ cases narrows significantly. We also find evidence that enhanced social distancing policies in the 63 Chinese cities outside Hubei province are effective in reducing the impact of population inflows from the epicenter cities in Hubei province on the spread of 2019-nCoV virus in the destination cities elsewhere.

The problem with irrational contrarians and gaslighters is that they will use literally everything as confirmation bias for their own stupid views.

You fall straight into that category.

You don't look at the evidence and form an opinion from that.

You form an opinion and then look for evidence to confim that opinion, and if you the evidence contradicts your opinion, you dismiss it.

You claim that COVID-19 will go away of its own accord in the near future. You say it's no longer a problem. I asked you for evidence to back up your claim.

You provided none.

I also asked you to explain why you say Neil Ferguson "should be in prison".

You haven't backed that up either.

But we aren't seeing exponential "decay". We're seeing slow, gradual "decay".

So almost a quarter of players said they wont play with a further 1/5 undecided.

Means many many teams wouldnt have the numbers to field - simple fact of the matter

You seem to be hoping that the GAA will fail to get going again for the foreseeable future. Odd.
And in terms of gaslighting by "five points", this is an absolute classic.

Regard for public health and the health of GAA members and local communities now equals "hoping that the GAA will fail".

You should tell that to John Horan.

Professional contrarians and gaslighters are a special breed of stupid.
