    Many other european nations are either facing or in a 'full lockdown'. Maybe they should all have listened to this guy and 'followed the South Korean ' way too.

    There's over 30 MP's who have had to self isolate now. Bit pointless if they could just get tested immediately. Surely you're not exaggerating?

    I'd read (and posted last week) that Bergamo's death rate was currently 4x that of usual, and a 30,000 population town within the Bergamo region had had more deaths between 1st to 24th March than they had in 2019. In which case, you can understand why they can't cope.

    People are just fault finding in some instances Gav. You would think it was an election campaign, not a worldwide pandemic.

    They're not doing much that other European countries arent doing on that front. We have suppliers still working in Germany, Belgium and France who are all non-essential. Thats why I asked BIgdogsteel earlier, because Ireland seem to have made that move on Friday.

    Am i right in thinking Ireland stopped non-essential work on Friday?

    Bergamo is also twice the population of Lodi and is far more of a transportation hub.

    So that, even though it was going to devastate the world economy, the fact they release the genome wouldn't cast suspicion on them. In fact, thats exactly why they dropped it next to their biological centre in Wuhan. Trump won't get it because he's actually a martian. Elvis's family are worried about him getting it though.

    Coronavirus

    It will only be deemed too late if it overwhelms the health service passed capacity. If cases reach a level we can cope with then the timing will have been OK. We have no idea at the moment whether we shut things at the right times or not. I've been speaking to our Swedish customer this morning who says life is not too different at the moment over there. Primary schools, bars and restaurants still open. Yet they have more or less the same number of cases/deaths per head of population as the UK https://www.ft.com/content/31de03b8-6dbc-11ea-89df-41bea055720b

    What is the figure on the right hand side pf the graph indicative of? (Ignore - it looks like it is percentage of usual level of trips planned with 100 being the normal level)

    Rovers vs Stoke. Fifa 20

    What was interesting was watching Dack set the team up at the start. Evans in for Travis. Mulgrew on the bench. No Brereton in the squad. Based on FIFA's players ability or personal preference 😁

    Defer your VAT payment. Use the Business Interuption Loan scheme to get a 12 month interest free loan to pay the salaries.

    If you are the first person in your household to show symptoms you self isolate for 7 days.

    Rovers vs Stoke. Fifa 20

    Dack for Rovers and Thibaud Verlinden for Stoke. It would be good if it was only a professional player for each team. But I think some clubs have esports professionals representing them.

    You ignore most of the Italian deaths are from just two regions of Italy, not the entire population. Bergamo's death rater, according to their Mayor, is running at four times that of the same period last year. Nembro, within the region, is reported to have had as many deaths since the beginning of March than they had all last year.

    See my edited post above which I expanded after you quoted. All I'm saying is there isn't any backtracking from the actual speech as far as I can tell.

    And go to work if you really can't work from home. Im not saying it's not flawed logic, just that the going to work for factory's / manufacturing was not stopped last night. Nor is it in most of Western Europe except Italy as far as I am aware. Certainly not from our supplier base.

    The problem then has come from what went on websites (and also what Sky instantly incorrectly reported). We rewatched the speech this morning in a management meeting to double check that we were not going against what he actually said, which we aren't. If someone has put different on the website then that's a poor do. Have you got a link btw? Not cos I doubt it but i want to forward it on,

    Backtracking from what? That's more or less what Johnson said last night.

    Chaddys getting a bit of stick here. However, as someone else who went to Cheltenham for most of the week, you have to remember the festival started on Tuesday. Looking back at the Bristol City match thread, not many people talk about the game getting called off. It’s hardly mentioned until the Wednesday. The EFL are still issuing a statement on Thursday evening (!) saying that they expect this weekends game to go ahead as planned ! The mood of the message board then changes during Thursday evening. A lot of people who were discussing teams and formations 2 days earlier are then saying it should be off and they wouldn’t attend. Some are saying they still will attend. I’m not sure exactly when the game was finally called off, but the mood and perception changed a hell of a lot from the start of that week to Thursday evening, both on here and in the wider public. I’d been in the cotswolds 3 days by that point ! Its almost written now that everyone that went to Cheltenham was a selfish bugger and did so against mounting evidence and advice. In fact, as far as official advice is concerned it was "continue as usual". Had football happened on Wednesday evening, the vast majority of fans would probably have attended as normal. People congregating at Cheltenham then returning home was actually a bigger story in Ireland, as Bigdogsteel can probably testify, as they have always been about 5 or 6 days in front of us in the gradual lockdown. Should it have gone ahead? Probably not in hindsight. But things changed a lot during that week, and the attempted shaming of those who attended is ridiculous and unfair, especially from people who looking back admitted they would go to the Bristol City game IF it went ahead. Having said that, by law of probability there’s more chance you caught it at Cheltenham than off a foreign lorry driver Chaddy!

    Link, evidence, back it up. Obviously trolling to provoke. (Is that ok lads FFS?)

    This was exposed as a bit of a myth a few days ago. If you have it and it is affecting you with coughing or breathing quite then it is a bit of a guide. But if you have it and shown no symptoms, or only a fever, you are still contagious but will be able to hold your breath fine.

    Yes. We have a major supplier in Bergamo.

    I believe it happens after there is public outrage at the scenes from pubs this weekend. As there was in Ireland and France last weekend. We are just operating 1 week behind. The worrying thing is that this weekend incorporates Mothers Day.
