When it starts affecting Greggs, you know the time has come to bring out the big guns.

Well be on 1.56 million cases a day in 8 weeks on the current trajectory. NHS will be overwhelmed massively and many will die as our government won't do a proper lockdown again.

Probably for the best, many will die but at least pret and wetherspoons will still be open.

Hyperbole like this doesnt do any favours like. The government needs to find the right balance between saving lives and keeping the economy afloat. They need to find a way to reduce cases, stop the spread and save lives whilst reducing the economic fallout as much as they can. Introducing restrictions that do the least economic damage whilst stopping the spread as much as possible is clearly the right way to go.

Economic damage, fall in GDP and quaraterly growth aren't just meaningless abstract terms. They transalate one way or another into jobs. The economy is already on its knees. If you're made redundant know, you're in big trouble. Imagine having a mouths to feed, bills, debt, mortgages, rent, you name it and you lose your job now? Its an absolute disaster and arguably a lot more dangerous to the average person than Covid.

I think this government are useless, incompetent and utterly corrupt but whatever they do, people will scream from all sides. People, often those in secure employment will shout about how restrictions need to be tighter, people are dying/going to die etc whilst others are (more dangerously) convinced we need to 'get on with it'. Then you've got the whaddaboutisms 'I can go out with my mates all day but I cant go out after 10pm how does that make sense yadda yadda yadda'. It's an impossible balancing act like.

It's not hyperbole it's maths based on the trend work it out for yourself. The restrictions they have put in place will make no difference. It was clear and even mentioned by the government we were at capacity of what we could have open after the pubs opened and intimated that it would either have to be schools or pubs. We are where we are, schools and pubs are open and the virus is spreading at the rate you would predict. If we don't go I to a lockdown like we had in March that is what will happen though probably a bit less.

You might prevent an extra 5,000 deaths through a full lockdown. But the fallout of a further economic crisis resulting in much higher job losses, further debt and suffering to people - more than likely increased mental health, poor living conditions, suicide etc. Might save 5,000 lives now, but could lose more than that over the next 5-10 years.

It’s an incredibly precarious situation for the Government to manage and no matter what they do, hindsight will tell us the other option may have been better.

People not acting responsibly and bending the rules to fit their own agenda should be shot to s***. Wouldn’t punch an 83 year old in the face, but will go down the pub with 12 mates and then pass Covid onto an 83 year old in Asda and kill her.

It’s so f***ing simple to just follow the scientific advice. Anyone confused by the rules is just trying to find a way to manipulate them to their own benefit.

41000 people died last time and we shut down earlier that the case levels we have now but we are testing more and have some kind of treatment even if it isn't an exact science.  We will see what happens over the next couple of weeks anyway as from what we all know about covid is it can overwhelm a very good health service of an entire country in a short space of time.

Surely the £350 milllion we’ll no longer be sending to the EU a week will he enough to see us through? I mean, that’s £1.5 billion a month! I think we’ll be ok 👍🏼

You really can't use case numbers as a comparison between now and March.

That app took 6 months to build and test.  :mackems:


Privacy is fine with it though, see no permissions it needs.

The app itself doesnt sound like it's collecting much from what Ive read. Just mainly using the OS. You reckon that having downloaded it?

Cases are going to get worse from the serge in house parties with this ridiculous 10pm closing time of pubs aren't they? If pubs are a massive problem just close them and give them a financial package so they don't go out of business. I bet they close them on weekends before that though.
