I am not convinced by that guy Donnelly’s levels of competence thus far and this doesn’t help either...

The latest developments takes the biscuit. The health minister Stephen Donnelly turned up to the Dáil today feeling unwell and now the entire cabinet is self isolating and the Dáil is abandoned for the week.

 ::) Have they not been social distancing?
Exactly! In schools, if there is a positive Covid case (not just someone feels sick), the guidance is that teachers don’t need to isolate or be tested as they have been instructed to stay 2m away from everyone.

Yet, in the Dáil, a man feels sick and the whole thing is suspended. What a crock of shite.

It would appear cabinet were in close contact hence the need for restricted movement.

The Dáil was adjourned but since rescinded because Ministers are needed to do business. Social distancing is practiced in Dáil. I think adjournment is now rescind ed and junior ministers will run the show.

/Jim.
The question is - was it really necessary for them to be in close contact? Could they not have conducted business while maintaining social distancing?

He has been a disappointment. However, it also shows that the government generally did not have a plan for when a minister would feel a bit off, which was inevitable. They should have had a plan which would just click into place and there was no evidence of that. Any organisation should have a plan for any given person to disappear for 14 days.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

The Donnelly situation reminded me of our celebrity doctor Dr Ciara. On the Sindo the week before she got Covid, telling us stupids how not to get Covid. Its really simple keep apart, wash the hands well etc etc.
On the paper while she had it telling us how sick she was, stop the world I want to get off.

Sinn Fein are well used to disappearing people so this won't be a problem when they're in power

After another 136 confirmed cases for Dublin today Prof Nolan has said this evening that hospitalisations and disease is concentrated in Dublin.

Looks like a matter of time before Dublin are moved into level 3.

August had 4 covid deaths, so far 14 deaths in September. 10% of the cases in the last 2 weeks have been in people over 65. Not a good stat as it will likely mean a further increase in deaths in the weeks ahead.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

The increase was always inevitable given the way things were going. Other parts of Europe have similar problems, Marseilles has run out of ICU beds.
In Dublin, the third level places are all starting to some extent in the next two weeks and the virus is already out of control even before that happens.
Dublin will be on the higher level.
GAA wise the best hope is that they ban training for 3 months.

DCU's pitches in Glasnevin should obviously be declared Level 5 ie DEFCON 1

Dublin has probably deployed a reserve team in Longford or Sligo, just in case or maybe they have 30 players on Lambay Island, who can be brought to games at country venues by helicopter.

At this stage. we've heard it all....look, this sounds bad but people are desensitised to all now and you can see that in the day to day events.

It's a fair point raised in the video of course but after 8 odd months at this stage of it, basically the reaction to largely 95% of my daily interaction is both in and outside Ireland, "lets get on with it". The major scare tactic at the start of the pandemic was justified of course, but people are now getting numb to it.

Irony there - if it was justified it certainly wasnt a scare tactic.
It was a necessity and if it didnt happen many more on this island would have lost loved ones

Meant in so much - and you could see it at the start of this thread for example.

Life wouldn't be the same again, normality as we knew it was dead....but sure here we are and people are flying out on summer hols (or whatever remains of it) to whatever spot is on the Green List right now.

Fair enough.

Has anyone been on foreign holidays? Cant imagine it is anything similar to what it was before?
