As per Cuomo quoting the CDC today, they're thinking the spread via surface contamination is looking to be much less of an issue, with airborne spread the primary mode of transmission. Which means that assuming healthcare workers are wearing masks and practicing proper manual hygiene, they may be well protected. Apparently NY healthcare workers have been suffering very low rates of infection compared to other sectors.

Yeah, the virus seemed to die as a problem down here pretty soon once they got a handle on hospital and care home PPE. This may be to do with some sort of built-up immunity as much as from masks etc. We will obviously know more as time goes on.

Interesting how well we have done here so far in Derry City. Even better than our neighbours in Donegal and better than rest of North outside Fermanagh. I'm not sure of reasons other than people took precautions very early on. 
FFS does it really need explaining. Yous are well used to lying about the house all day every day

Cummings breaking the lockdown and who's the first puppet to defend him.... Kuensberg. She is one pathetic individual.

The first person to go to jail should be Ferguson.
Are you right in the head?

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.

Seems like  a tory puppet. The lockdown had to be done. Donít understand how anyone can think otherwise.

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.

Lockdown has saved lives but how many we do not know. People need to realise lockdown was needed but now itís not. The surge didnít come. Never was going to come. The scenes in Italy scared us all. Itís time to open up. Leo needs to put a stamp on things before he flies in a week or so. Michael Martin would not fill us with much confidence mind you. 290 people in all settings in hospital the the South of Ireland. Seriously what is the hold up with opening things. Yes we are going to see spikes but hospitals are now prepared. Lockdown needs to end. Everyone coming into Ireland from next Thursday needs to quarantine for 14 days or face a Ä2500 fine. Good call that. Even more reason to open up our island. Pubs not open to August. Come on whatís that about.

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.

As is cancer Sid which has sadly been put in the back burner. The flu kills people. Diabetes kills people. Depression kills people
Letís reopen things

If Kuennsberg has fallen in your estimation during Coronavirus, you weren't paying attention to what she was doing previously.

The way she has carried on during this is of a piece with her entire career.

There's a reason people call her Laura Riefenstahl.
