No covid deaths in Northern Ireland for the 22nd consecutive day, 8 additional cases.

It's beat in Ireland. It's just what we do now with regards to tourism.

I am interested in your definition of beat, the number of cases in the ROI has risen 5 times since the lowest point.

If the cases are rising what is the south doing thatís keeping the death rate down? Have they got better at treating it?
Younger people getting it I'd say. Something like 80% of recent cases aged under 45.

Younger people getting it is one reason, but there is a time lag too, if cases keep increasing then hospitalisations and deaths will increase too in due course. In these factories etc you have people of different ages and health conditions, not all of them are invulnerable and not all their relations and contacts are invulnerable.

Maybe the strain is weakening....they said months ago there was two strains majorly in Europe. Perhaps this is now the proof. I'm sure the medical professions worldwide are pooling their resources in knowledge to no end too. We don't hear of any good news regarding this so the normal man like me wouldn't be reading about it.

Number of cases doesn't really interest me to be honest since any of us could have it right now and not know. I am interested in continuing the good work so far and looking forward.

Looks like the government are going full cautious mode. Can understand indoor crowds remaining the same but to keep GAA crowds at 200 makes little sense.

Edit now confirmed that phase 4 stuff has to wait for at least another 3 weeks

Maybe to stop them all heading to the pub afterwards and chatting about the match?

Haven't noticed less shouting (causing more droplets) from management and supporters during games lol

Pubs are beat. If they can't open now then that's going to be them until well into next year. A lot will never reopen, their trade long gone by that stage. Big call to condemn such a large and visible aspect of Irish culture and society.

I'm all for being cautious with this thing, but government regulation in both Ireland and the UK has become increasingly illogical and disjointed as things have been opened up. It now seems to be more about being seen to be at something than actually tackling real issues.

Why are some pubs in the south pretending to 'serve food' allowed open, while other aren't? Open both or neither.
Why was the shielding advice paused in the north at the weekend with community transmission on an upward curve? It was safer a month ago for these people when they were told to keep locking themselves away.
What's actually being done to tackle large gatherings in houses and parks, which have demonstrably led to outbreaks on the island?
What's actually being done to ensure adherence to good practices in food processing facilities and group residential facilities, which have demonstrably led to outbreaks on the island?
Why is mask wearing being recommended sometimes, by some officials, in some settings, but never with any actual enforcement? If they help matters then make people wear them ffs.
Why are half the young ones in the country allowed jet off to Spain, Portugal and where ever else they want with nothing more in their way than some piss weak 'recommendations' against travel?
What alternative activities or schemes have been offered to these same young ones who've had their social lives decimated, education suspended, and job prospects voided?

But sure we'll keep the pubs shut, that'll solve things...

Another vaccine looking good, albeit at an earlier stage. Since these are a bit different hopefully one can prove suitable where another one doesn't.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/novavax-says-its-covid-19-vaccine-shows-promising-results-in-early-study-2020-08-04

ďItís highly immunogenic,Ē or able to produce immune responses, Gregory Glenn, Novavaxís president of research and development, said in an interview. The vaccine also induced a favorable type of response from other components of the immune system, known as T-cells, which researchers think may help avoid a rare complication when a vaccine worsens the severity of disease.

Novavax, of Gaithersburg, Md., said the results support further testing, including a large, 30,000-person final-stage study slated to start in the fall. That study will test whether the immune responses triggered by the vaccine safely protect people from Covid-19.

Newcastle looks to have had a breakout here with many of the shops closing because staff have tested positive.  Supervalu and now Kent Amusements.  I was actually up in the town briefly on Sunday as I went for a walk in the Mournes.  It was absolutely packed...

Bon Bon as well, and some in Castlewellan - Eat Fresh, and Mulhollands Bar both had someone test positive and Tranquil Beauty is closed pending covid test result

Lockdown reintroduced in Aberdeen, this dose quickly comes back if you do not take care, and many people are not taking care.

I wonder would you see this in the likes of Portrush. I imagine people would have flocked there too during this last few weeks.

We've seen it especially in the North at Crawfordsburn (the rave), Portrush and Portstewart are always stuffed on any sniff of sun, we had the unsocially distanced BLM protest at Belfast which I was in City at same time.

We all seen the pictures and videos of Dublin the night the bars opened in Temple Bar. The 'mass gatherings' have been happening for the past few months

The damage at this stage seems to be continually house parties, nearly in every situation especially in Northern Ireland....whats the solution to that?

There was an odd stat on the RT… news last night saying 15 hospitalised confirmed cases of Covid (in line with your post). But then there was another bigger number (canít remember exactly, think it was high 20s) of suspected cases of Covid in hospital.

Surely they could find out pretty quickly if someone has to be hospitalized with suspected Covid whether he/she actually has it or not!

I think it is people who have been admitted for something non covid related who have been tested and are in the process of getting results back.  Its not something the public need to know and it seems to be a way of putting more fear into people. The same as the minister for health rambling on about community transmission while it is clear that the majority of current cases are related to  direct provision centres, Meat plants etc.
