  1. Agree. Obviously the number of deaths and infections has dropped solely due to the lockdown. But there are still far too many infections and deaths. Opening up now is just madness.
  2. Reminds me of the inside of a Mcdonalds restaurant (if restaurant is the right word).
  3. So basically virus is totally out of control and the Government is trying to open stuff up again. Insanity. Expect shockingly bad 2nd wave. Start preparing now - including for the winter, which will be worse.
  4. Be careful what you wish for.
  5. Being 'still here' isn't the issue. Most aren't worried about death. I personally would be worried by a 5-10% loss in lung capacity or efficiency though.
  6. This is completely wrong. This virus is nothing like flu. You do not want to catch this - if possible. 'Thousands' Of Dutch COVID-19 Survivors Likely Have Permanent Lung Damage According To Top Pulmonologist According to Leon van den Toorn, Chairman of the Dutch Association of Physicians for Pulmonary Disease and Tuberculosis NVALT, people are underestimating the consequences of the coronavirus. "In severe cases, a kind of scar formation occurs, we call this lung fibrosis. The lungs shrink and the lung tissue becomes stiffer, making it harder to get enough oxygen," Van den Toorn told Dutch newspaper AD (via the NL Times), adding that "there may be thousands of people in the Netherlands who suffered permanent injury to the lungs from corona."
  7. 'Thousands' Of Dutch COVID-19 Survivors Likely Have Permanent Lung Damage According To Top Pulmonologist COVID-19 may be far less deadly than originally projected - and asymptomatic cases may be even more common than first suspected, but for those who have caught it and come down with symptoms, the disease can result in lasting symptoms, including shortness of breath, lethargy, recurrent fevers, headaches, itchiness and other mystery problems that aren't going away.
  8. 412 UK Covid deaths today, so the numbers appear to be creeping up again.
  9. So all those pictures of busy Tube trains in London ... if someone on one of those trains test positive 10 days after being infected are they supposed to provide a list of all trains used?
  10. Getting the app won't mean much. I don't have a smart phone. And I also don't carry my phone around with me (ever). Are they going to make carrying a phone mandatory?
  11. Given that everything is available online, why would one go to this shopping centre?
  12. It's been too late for years. Nothing to do with Covid. This is a must read for anyone interested in gold, silver and the general geopolitical backdrop.
  13. Pretty obvious that the behaviour of the general population over the last week or so will lead to spikes in cases and more deaths.
  14. Not just old or unhealthy. I mean people in mid-late 30s upwards - and plenty very healthy and fit indeed. And with lots of money - which just won't be being spent.
  15. No. Many habits will be changed forever and at least 30-40% of people will continue in lockdown mode until it is clear that no further waves are coming (so think 6 months or more).
