This is a really interesting article: https://quillette.com/2020/04/23/covid-19-superspreader-events-in-28-countries-critical-patterns-and-lessons/

The start of it is quite technical, but it's worth bearing with.  In essence the author suggests that the vast majority of super spreading incidents happened through face to face "droplet sharing", ie shouting or signing in close proximity to people.
I think it's a really interesting take and it should be studied more, as if true, it would offer a really clear path to us emerging out of lockdown.  There would be no need to worry about traveling on public transport (as people generally don't talk on it), shopping would be OK, and most forms of work would be OK.

Have a read of it.

So wearing a mask would prevent spreading?

The whole thing from start to finish has been an absolute disgrace
A national scandal and an enquiring should open when this is over
Multiple people need to stand before a judge
On a side note and I’ll say it again hospitals are empty up and down the country north and south
The new nightingale hospital has not been used. Time to wake up and smell the coffee. The curve has not only been slowed it has stopped

People uninfected be Coronavirus
99.994% of China's 1.4 billion population was uninfected
99.729% of Italy's 60 million population
99.817% of USA's 330 million population
99.633% of Spain's 47 million population
99.842% of Germany's 83 million population
99.910% of Iran's 83 million population
99.798% of France's 65 million population
99.698% of Switzerland's 8.6 million population
99.858% of UK's 67 million population
99.979% of South Korea's 51 million population
99.889% of Sweden's 10.3 million population
99.974% of Australia's 25 million population
99.974% of the World's 7.5 billion population


Are these figures accurate?

Obviously take a side lack of mass testing etc.

Those figures are complete nonsense.

Anyone hear about the factory in Gwedore RAP. They had stopped manufacturing packaging for the food industry and have come up with a very impressive looking face mask. I got my hands on a few, very impressive design and wait for it they can make 10 million a week.
Well done to the brains behind this.

Looks like it - but not enough data to confirm its large or small droplets (the latter necessitating a proper mask rather than scarf etc).

Here's the real article its based on:

https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/7/20-0764_article

edit: Need to clarify this - a mask would as you say, prevent a carrier spreading it, but it won't prevent someone picking it up from airborne droplets (suspended or not) - for instance a suspended droplet lands on your finger unnoticed and you rub your eye a minute later.

The castle catholics of the north will never let go of the UK, even if it kills them. This crisis has shown that.

All about the money for the majority of them, the posters on here never tire of reminding us, sad but true  :(

True - too many garden centre 'nationalists' on the green side.

A lot of Gaa people have no time for culture or the Irish language - just a hobby.  People write the word 'northern ireland' in newspapers and in interviews etc - disgraceful.

Haven't read the Irish News in a while but it was all 'northern ireland' this and 'northern ireland' that: oh, how the policy of colonization has worked.

A state apart....ehhh.

Yeah radiogaagaa mask stops you spreading it. I do wonder will that come in. Mandatory in Czech Republic and probably quite a few other countries.

Some stats ... 16 in nightingale city hospital(scoped for 230). 90 in Ulster due to virus with 4 on ventilators.

Definitely hasn’t hit as bad as expected or planned for although worst case was planned for however as most of us understand that would be due to lockdown... next steps will be very interesting.

There has to be some kind of “new normal”. Any attempt to go back to previous normal and massive surge. As people would say the lockdown is probably more to protect the nhs  or health service from being overrun than anything else.

I just want back to work safely and for my clients. If it takes another 3 months and full PPE and other measures then so be it.

This being off lark (while I enjoy the time of with family) is not good for the overall economy so while continuing to search for vaccines, ramp up the testing and start the contact tracing, look into ways of getting things right for a phased opening up of our businesses and schools, though the schools one is going to be very difficult to keep social distancing
