Exposure is just one factor, health workers aside - susceptibility is a more important factor for most people, it determines how an exposure is experienced.  The vast majority of people who experience exposure, experience nothing or just mild symptoms.

You make a lot of this point. But it isn't the experience of those people that is important, it is the experience of those they give the dose to.
Eh?  That sounds like gobbeldygook, are you saying that it's not important how this virus is experienced by the vast majority of people so far, but by those they give it to?
If that's so, do you think that those newly exposed to this virus will have a different experience than that already experienced elsewhere?

And just how can it be avoided to keep Italians out of Ireland, ban all flights altogether? How many is it, 6 or 10 flights daily, or more?
What about when inevitably it is France, Germany, Britain,  Northern ireland, ban all flights/border crossings to and from those countries?

It most certainly is not gobbledygook. A person with an illness or compromised immune system would not risk going to this game at the present time. But you have some guy with your attitude who goes to the game then gives the pox to his parents or his girlfriend is a nurse or works in an old people's home.

It probably can't be avoided by any reasonable measure. The object of the measures is to keep things in in control, a collapse of the health service would be a catastrophe.

The WHO has just reported that a confirmed case of the virus in a dog has been found n Hong Kong. The dog tested "weakly positive" after showing flu-like symptoms. Apparently, the mutt's owner has also contacted the virus. This is a potentially serious development as it makes the job on containing the spread of covid-19 even harder than it is now.

Got worse news than that...

A woman working as a tour-bus guide in Japan tested positive for the coronavirus for a second time, Osaka’s prefectural government said on Wednesday, the first person in the country to do so amid growing concerns about the spread of the infection.

Quote
Possible that virus may be “bi-phasic like anthrax,” said Philip Tierno Jr., Professor of Microbiology and Pathology at NYU School of Medicine.

Quote
Though a first in Japan, cases of second positive tests have been reported in China, where the disease originated late last year.

By the amount of media stuff and 60% of the world getting it, we’re doomed!

Doom is indeed possible. The probability is about that of Antrim winning an All Ireland, possible, but unlikely.

There used to be a difference, but nowadays it is the comparison of two infinitesimally small numbers.

The idea or one idea about enforcing isolation on an infected area is to buy time for unaffected areas and allow for prepartions. What is the rationale for calling off the rugby international because some thousands of Italians would be attending? yet the Italians will be travelling to Ireland in their thousands and presumably in close social contact with Irish people over a period of 48 hours or so. Either impose a travel ban or allow the mingling. The stunt to ban the game  just smacks of phony finger in the dyke grandstanding.

Walking past a person in a shop is not the same as sitting beside them for 2 hours.
Switzerland has banned events of >1000 people from now. There is a balance in these things.
Italians will be mingling in airplanes, Dublin airport, taxis, buses, Dart, Luas, pubs, restaurants, hotels, other social events. Not the same exposure as a match, but overall similar.
Exposure is just one factor, health workers aside - susceptibility is a more important factor for most people, it determines how an exposure is experienced.  The vast majority of people who experience exposure, experience nothing or just mild symptoms.

It would be a whole lot better if they didn't come.

It's all about the money, flights should be banned to Northern Italy but no chance as folk will need compensating.

Armagh will win the same number of All Ireland's as Antrim over the next 10 years.

Are you including Scór in that?
