  4. This isn't a regular virus, it's more contagious than the likes of SARS and MERS and follows a path like no other has. There's a random nature to this one that they can't crack. They currently have no idea if the Italian virus or Spanish virus is the same Covid-19 that started the outbreak in China, or if it's mutated. The only way to find that out is if China would release more data. People will naturally be afraid of the unknown, not helped by a media frenzy and a government who are making it up as they are going along. Mortality rates for seasonal influenza have been measured over 4-6 mo

  5. Well in our local park there's acres of grass space with a network of tarmac paths meandering it through it. Paths are full of couples, families etc all spread 10m apart, kids on bikes, the lot. But all socially distancing well. It's all very calm and serene until oh, here comes a sweaty runner thundering up behind everyone, bobbing their head from side to side, flicking globules of their bodily fluids in all directions. Now you would think these runners would maybe give everyone a wide berth. But no, they barely step a metre from the path. I can only assume because they're wea

  7. "When Germany is testing around 500,000 people a week, many are asking why we are still not even hitting the 10,000 a day promised on March 11,” They lied about having an effective control policy. They lied about the NHS being fully equipped and prepared. They lied about following best scientific advice. They lied about testing Why would anyone trust or believe anything else this government says?.

  8. Probably like many of us at the moment I’ve been doing a fair bit of reading. I’ve got a pretty good collection of Rovers books and I’ve rediscovered some long forgotten facts about our great club! So I’ve compiled a quiz of 20 questions about the Rovers which I would like to share. If you, like me, love quizzing then I hope it might help provide a much needed distraction and some enjoyment in these difficult days There are 20 questions but the total score is 36. If you want to PM me your answers then I’m more than happy to give you your score! Q1. Rovers didn’t have one of the

  9. I find this very selfish behaviour. Why on earth would you go anywhere near an hospital whilst supposedly having one of the most virilant virus we have ever known? I'm surprised the hospital had you in and you should have informed them of your condition. And Rev, you are spouting things whi h such certainty that you have no clue about apart from what you choose to read. I know many healthcare professionals, commercial and NHS and I've never known people to be so concerned. Your strange attitude that this is some sort of conspiracy is frankly disrespectful to anyone involved, dead o

  12. I think this is a competition for how much I can disagree with in a post! Most people are self isolating? Still a significant number who aren't. And I'm not talking about our frontline heroes or anything work related - I mean needless social interaction. I'm talking those who still want to hang out with friends. In the last few days alone there has been a number of articles from that family hosting a party for 25 people through to the Villa captain popping over to visit a mate. Then there's the evidence of what's being seen by the community nurses - people not isolating. If it just

  16. He had to have his hip done for the second time about 3 years ago. His surgeon refused to do the job at first. He said " I'm afraid I might kill you on the operating table ". My pal replied " Listen Doc, I've had blokes who were really trying to kill me. They meant it and they nearly succeeded. I wouldn't hold it against you if you did it accidentally ! " The surgeon still didn't want to do the job but he found a colleague who did.

  17. A guy I used to work with was a WW 2 veteran. I still see him once a month. He still has a bit of a German grenade in his thigh that made his hip transplant more of a problem than it should have been. He's 99 now, I'm hoping he'll make it to 100 in September.

It's difficult to get through on the phones but they are hopeful you will be able to pause it online by the weekend. https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2020/03/sky-sports-to-let-customers--pause--their-accounts-amid-coronavi/

  19. The reality is that this is going to get worse before it gets better, we're going to lose many lives in the coming weeks, but hopefully the lock down and people following the rules is going to bear fruit and reduce that loss of life in the long run. We need to carry out more tests clearly, we've struggled to source parts for those tests, the supply chain is over subscribed. Hopefully testing will increase if we can source parts and just as important have staff to administer the tests, its not just about having the equipment, this isn't an easy task all country's are struggling across the

  22. The government’s competence in handling this pandemic is being questioned. Robert Preston emphasisethis after his question about testing. This is what Peston said afterward..... Michael Gove said just now that the difficulty in increasing number of #COVID19 tests was due to a shortage of the relevant "chemcial reagents". Well I've just talked to the Chemical Industries Association, which represents the UK's very substantial chemicals industry. It has contacted its members, and they've said there is no shortage of the relevant reagents. So the Association has now been in touch with @m

  26. Have they? They seem to be quite happy with them being implemented now. It seems to me that you're quite a hardcore Conservative and even then you only seem to use voting intention and approval stats to justify that stance. What do YOU (not the public, you) think about public spending being cut while borrowing is at record levels? What do you think about over 130,000 disabled people committing suicide after a short time on benefits over the last decade? What do you think of funding to the NHS being cut in real terms virtually every year since 2015? What do you think of

  27. The lad could have shouted for us to get out of the way, he'd plenty of time given we were on a long straight path. I read somewhere that runners give off a large aura off their bodies and if this guy had the virus the chances are he was much too close to us. When I'm walking I maintain a large gap between anyone in front of me. If they stop, I stop.It's not that difficult.

  28. Remember when Liverpool finished 5th and won the "Champions" League? Everton finished 4th and there was a debate over whether the FA could "nominate" Liverpool instead of Everton. Ultimately Liverpool were given special dispensation but had to enter in first qualifying round. So if the season is null/void couldn't the FA just "nominate" the top 4 as it stands for the next CL? Whether they get awarded a title or not?

  29. That was the point, it's their newspaper. The right are starting to question their chosen leaders now. You have to admit though, best romance reads for lockdown looks a pretty compelling read. Numbers of cases going down will be pointless if they don't back it up with other proven methods of keeping the virus at bay. It'll just return in large numbers when lockdown is lifted.

  30. Jim posting the Daily Mail, strange times indeed We had some really encouraging news yesterday on the death rate and infection rate yesterday, long may that continue. You've got to admire the way the government/army have turned the ExCel into a 4000 bed field hospital, by far the biggest hospital in UK, in just a few weeks? Tremendous effort and hopefully will take some of the strain away from London hospitals/morgues that are currently at bursting point. Maybe Boris and his 40 new hospitals can be built at a similar pace, but I doubt it....

  33. I can tell you that some NHS staff still don't have better protection - masks and goggles - then that which would prevent them passing on the virus. Nothing to protect them from getting it, just preventing them from passing it on. I'm bias of course but still think it is pretty brave of them to keep working in such circumstances.

  44. With old football on the TV and nostalgia for days gone by a favourite on here (a favourite anyway, never mind lockdown), I'm going to borrow from Ian Herbert's twitter and ask for photo memories of trips gone by. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures at my all-time favourite away jaunts (Feyenoord or Blyth Spartans) so my entry comes from our lovely day in York the summer before League 1. Nice drive, warm weather, decent shops and really modern facilities...
