The UK approach during this crisis has been poor, early forgivable chaos has been replaced by clarity. Well clarity in the sense that it's clear we don't have a farkin clue about how to live with this virus in a way that seems to meet the needs to be morally, politically and economically sustainable.

Whilst the situation here is poor, it's broadly the same as the rest of Europe, the Americas, Africa. Lockdown reduces infection, open up a bit and cases rise because no country ( a handful of exceptions in Asia and the backwaters of Australia/NZ) has found a way to more or less eradicate the disease to the point where Track and Trace actually works

Surely it's time for a country to actually try something different. Pretty remarkable that there doesn't seem to be a single smart idea and somewhat incredible that there's been virtually no effort to co-ordinate a response on a supra-national scale (except perhaps in the pursuit of a vaccine). I think this will be looked back on as a reasonable test of supra national orgs like the EU, probs gonna get a fail.




You not been reading Sicilian's posts?

Haha, Deano knows, go gym and you're invincible

Dunno what’s wrong with all these pansies

Speaking from a selfish point-of-view, how come I'm allowed to go and get a haircut indoors with a total stranger but cannot play golf outdoors?

They seem to be making it up on the hoof.

Are you?

That's good news, I thought barbers were all being closed when it comes into effect.

Haircuts are okay but manicures, like golf are not.

Are they classified as essential then?

Everything I've read points to them closing until next month, too.

You can go ice-skating or play tennis but not golf!

Those are the tiered restrictions currently in effect, no?

That's not the blanket ones which will be debated/mandated later this week?

You been on the sauce, Ralph?

Slovakia testing the whole population - half of them done in one day.

It’s ‘voluntary’, but you get the10 days compulsory isolation anyway if you don’t take part, and a fine of €1,650 if you’re caught breaking it.

UK is so much bigger let say we can do it in 14 days, by the time the last people have been tested the first people tested could of picked up the virus and passed it on

So we would have proportionately more testers. There may be reasons not to do it, but that shouldn't be the reason.

A lad on 2p2 posted his TR of that, when he went to do it.

Results were:

3 625 332 tested
38 359 positive (1.06 percent).
