New Chinese virus spreads

  • what's the point of comparing Britain's high density capital with whole regions? At least compare London's cov19 incidences per 100 with other high-density conurbations, eg Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow. See if density correlates with cov19 incidences per 100 population. I'm sure the data exists for an analysis of variance on many other factors, such as sex, age distribution, travelling habits, car vs public transport usage, prescriptions of different medicine in NHS surgeries (as an indication of degree and type of ill-health), socio-economic class, (particularly distinguishing between white collar and manual/blue collar workers), and so on.


    It's pathetic and pointless of us to try and figure out or hypothesise any patterns from the scant and simplistic data doled out to us from government/media

  • People dying connected to CV19 are dying WITH CV19 and not because of CV19.

    The vast majority in Italy have had very serious additional health issues which caused the deaths but they may have died WITH CV19 and not killed by CV19 Virus.

  • In 2018, an estimated 10 million people became sick with TB — with a relatively stable rate for the last several years — and 1.5 million people died because of the disease, according to the World Health Organization. The rise of MDR TB has posed another threat in the battle against the infectious disease. Globally, 3.4% of new TB cases and 18% of previously treated cases had MDR TB in 2018.

  • Three months, four months I am not getting into semantics but it should be remembered that China is not too honest and open

    The fact remains that the virus is spread by human contact and the sooner contact is limited the less the virus would spread

    As I say Johnson and co react, they do not lead

    They act on medical advice. Nothing wrong with that.

    I have moved it as you suggested. I forgot about this specific thread.

    I dont know how to delete the above???

  • "it should be remembered that China is not too honest and open"??

    Is this just stating a fact about a Nationality/Race/Country or is it racism???

    I suggest you are innocently stating a fact or a fact as you see it. Not problem with that.
    But if Trump said it .............???

  • Current narrative on UK radio ....


    "those selfish people who don't obey Boris instructions on self-isolation"

    "Prince Charles blah blah blah"


    Question:

    If deaths, claimed too be "Corona Virus linked", are people who would have died in any case, are what would have happened as learned by decades of registering deaths, should this be the way deaths are reported.

    Example: 2000 to 2019 .. xxxx people died from Flu, Heart attack, Stroke, Cancer, TB etc ........

    2020 the numbers have not risen because the deaths are no different from earlier years except CV 19 is attached to those same deaths which are never in the news???

  • They act on medical advice. Nothing wrong with that.

    They don't act, they react

    It's a convenient cover to use the medical experts, it it all goes pear shape they will carry the blame

    Churchill who Johnson so admires was given lots of "expert" advice during the war. He acted as a leader and made his own decisions

    A Hand Up Not A Hand Out

  • Blame may be apportioned but there is no legal ramification when an expert gives an opinion in this way.

    There is no paid for deal/contract. The definition of leadership is in one person who makes decisions which motivate and induce commitment. Corbyn in no way comes close to this. Shackleton or Corbyn... ????

    I cant imagine Shackleton on hearing.... "as a black, Trans person I must have my own cabin on Endeavor".. that person would never be on the crew.

    My Sainsbury's has instituted a maximum number of customers in the store and a queueing system outside

    Is that Winston Churchill the racist as despised by lefties?

    They are doing the same at our Tesco Extra this morning and Morrisons but our normal Tesco just had a flow system - no queues. We will try again tomorrow when it's Oldies Hour

    They have adopted the Continental system of one in when one is out - they do it by using the trolleys. I couldn't stand in the queues for the time required

  • How is this going to work in my general hospital where they sold the car parks off to a privare company, and you have to pay on exit?

    They react to medical advice. That is the sensible thing to do.


    You would be the first to complain if the PM just started acting on initiatives from the top of his head.


    Why do you criticise everything, even when the government is doing the right thing?


    If you saw PMQs this week, you will have noticed the spirit of co-operation throughout the House. A very changed situation from last December.

  • Yes, I saw PMQs

    Corbyn raising relevant points, Johnson waving hos arms about with his usual bluster

    My criticism is that thought the government appears to be doing the right thing it is too little, too late

    One example is their insistence that construction and building workers are and "essential workers". For the life of me I fail to see how converting Battersea Power station to luxury flats is an essential industry except of course the rich development company has friends in the right places

  • One might well ask what the hell an eighty four year old was doing in prison

    A Hand Up Not A Hand Out

  • Being punished Bryan, he was a criminal.

    Nasty piece of work. Here's what my red top says seeing as the BBC report is rather vague:


    A better world without this scum.

    If the Sun s t e believed an offence committed in the 70s

    Do we really think he would be a danger at 84 years old?

    Had he killed the girl in the 70s he would have been out of prison years ago. Moral of tyhe story, if you are going to rape then it will be easier for you if you murder your victim. Ludicrous !

  • Italy - the country most suffering from CV19 - EU membership does nothing for them..not a thing. Cubs sends doctors to Italy and Russia sends help and money.

    Serious talks within Italy they will leave the EU ASAP.

    To little to late is correct, the P. M as reacted foolishly thinking he had things under control his way. London is a very large city lots of movement this is a sure way to lose control.

  • It happy slappy clappy night for the UK. I'm going to clap for all the supermarket staff working in dangerous conditions for shit pay so we can still get some food. Actually I'm not going to clap for anyone as it would be discrimination. What a load of b***ox....stupid clown world. What's all this nonsense distracting us from. On the posotive side I have come up with a cure for the virus. Get a bakers in London to start a fire. :D
