But are you not just testing people who have symptoms in the south? And if they have it, they have it, and if they were in contact with others theyíll  have it.

Exactly. And in the South there are 1200 people tracking down those contacts and getting them tested and telling them to isolate.

Iím talking as to why Germany have less fatalities with four times the cases

I told you, in the UK they only test you if you end up in the hospital. In  Germany, likely only 1 in 6 of them go to hospital.

Self isolation is the best way, thatís what will stop it spreading. Letís continue to do that and find a vaccine

Testing ensures  that people with it are isolated, while allows the rests carry on. Keeping everyone isolated for another year will wreck the country.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

It wonít recover from this for a long time! Isolate for 4/5 weeks relax it then bring in Another lockdown but get those test kits out hopefully thatíll buy time enough to get enough beds ventilators available

Some companies can get to f**k. I've been forced to take a sabbatical.

I have heard coca cola factories have remained open and are not implementing any protective measures

Go ahead if you can. Not to sure how it works after registration  but it would be a bit shite if people who are alone and self isolating didn't have anyone to talk to.

Is there a map of Ireland showing cases by county?

Yes. The Irish govt have been first class on this. For a comparatively small country they have done a really good job in many areas .

I'm looking forward to any politician trying to state that somehow we are better off in the union after this shambles. What a load of horseshit!

Never underestimate how unbelievably incompetent the NI executive are. Waiting around and taking the lead from Westminster. Even the like of Naomi Long (who I would have had great time for) talking nonsense and being totally reactive throughout.

I just can't forgive anyone who backed schools being open and trusting the Brits whole initial 'trust the science' approach. That and accusing nationalists of playing political games for wanting schools closed. People won't forget that in the polling booth when this disaster is over!

Sdlp and sinn fein voted to close the schools, dup, uup and alliance voted to keep them open. I was shocked myself at the time, going against advice of who among others
