Couple of ones in my work place have been away. One was caught in Croatia....had to do the quarantine because flight home was more expensive than it was worth.

Few been to Greece. Business as usual so they are saying - bar the nightclubs.

Any flu numbers from last 5-10 years compared to now?, I know it's only Sept.
Yes, I'm implying that it's a bad flu,  and yes I have had a death in the family from Covid19 "related" symptoms.

Are you entirely resistant to information? It isn't a "bad flu" it is an order or magnitude higher with 10-20 times the fatalities, and that is even with measures. All the data showed deaths this year far beyond the average and that average includes flu. Flu has a vaccine, it isn't entirely effective but keeps things under some control. And it is only September, flu only really kills a lot of people in 3 months of the year, hence January is higher in a normal year, you would have feck all dying from flu in June to August in any case.

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.
And the Ulster Final drew 30,000 to Clones in mid June.....

If it went ahead tomorrow and it was passed.....you'd have 30k at it. Would you disagree?

Just pointing out that life hasn't returned to anything near normal as we knew it.

Of course we want it back to normal but while this dose is knocking around we do not want to get Covid, law or no law.

The Covid restriction measures have serioudly slowed down the spread of the flu, which is much more predictable and treatable

Handwashing , masks and reduced social interaction have really helped.

Normally they base the flu vaccine on the variations in circulation in the southern hemisphere over our summer. This year flu has been much less common and the vaccine has been delayed as consequence.

6 counties is 149, which is even more pro rate. There is some sort of cluster in the area from Armagh city to the Monaghan border.

So did the Swedes get it right then?

Too early to say, in 5 years time perhaps we can answer that question. The usual lads will say Sweden called it badly wrong.
