Slowing da course o a virus was tae prevent health services being overwhelmed (and buy time whilst vaccines and treatments wir developed, and yis, herd immunity was potentially achieved). Dat is whit

I don't think either of those options were seriously considered for very long by anyone with an understanding of how the virus was spreading (I assume you know that but are writing for dramatic effect

And also the minor point highlighted by the graphic posted above. There are still people that don't understand covid masks are to limit the spread of what's coming out of the wearer and not to stop yo

.....and all of a sudden nobody gave a damn anymore about Brexit, Trump's shenanigans, English floods, Australia's fires, how much dodgy crap politicians are 'burying' quietly, the colour of Kim Il Jong's drawers etc...... :ponders:

 

Brexit being delayed yet again hasn't even been news for several years now,

Delayed because MUH virus concerns.

 

Australia as we know it is a total lie and all footage and visits to "Australia" since 2 November 1932 have taken place elsewhere unbenounced to the tourists or been photoshoped/filmed on Norfolk island.

I think therefore i am,

from whence doth thought hail?

I assume so,

Based on where i believe i am, i am from what i recall be this same planet.

 

I however have no way of knowing if the memories i woke up with this morning were there yesterday and neither do you since we would use said memories as the point of reference.

Five months ago the B.B.C put out Brexit delay: How is Article 50 extended?

 

Years ago, though.

 

This just in! Sky observed to be blue,

in other news Water believed to be Wet!

 

 

Brexit being delayed for the billionth time is not news at this point because it always happens and will continue to happen possibly even years after disbanding of the eu possibly even the heat death of the universe

 

We don’t print newspaper articles about bird droppings falling to earth changes in traffic lights and other predictable phenomenon because they aren’t newsworthy.

Since they stopped testing for coronavirus, we know how many people have tested positive, but we don't know how many people are self isolating because they have similar symptoms. For anyone who knows how to set it up, would this be the perfect place to anonymously report that they are suspected cases, giving a better understanding of how many cases there actually are in Shetland.

It's from today. It appears to be behind a paywall now, but the text I an access reads:

 

CORONAVIRUS
Coronavirus: Swine flu piles more pressure on Shetland’s health system
 
Marc Horne | Saturday March 21 2020, 12.01am, The Times

 

Shetland, the area of the UK worst affected by coronavirus, has also been hit by an outbreak of swine flu, heaping further pressure on its health services.
 
With 24 confirmed coronavirus cases the islands, which have no intensive care facilities and a population of 20,000, have the highest rate of the condition per head of population of anywhere in the British isles.
 
It has recorded more than seven cases per 10,000 compared with about 0.5 cases per 10,000 in Glasgow.
 
Susan Laidlaw, a public health consultant with NHS Shetland, confirmed there had also been an outbreak of H1N1 or swine flu.
 
She told BBC Radio Shetland: “We have had positive results for swine flu that caused the pandemic several years ago.”
 
In 2009, 457 people........

I know a couple who have almost certainly had it after being in contact with someone who had tested positive. The couple weren't tested but self-isolated and were quite ill for a week and have made a full recovery. AFAIK they're not included in any statistics.

People were out drinking in a local pub last night.

 

Nearly 800 die in Italy in 24 hours.

Sounds a lot put like that, but for perspective if that daily death toll continued for a full year it would only amount to under 0.5% of the population.

 

Okay, slester for 292,000 stiffs and their nearest and dearest, but it would take over 207 years to eliminate the entire current Italian population at that rate.

 

The six years 1939/45 took out an average estimated 11600000 - 14100000 per year, and the world kept on turning. We have a long ways to go yet to get to extinction.
