This coronavirus in China
anyone else worried? 9 dead so far.

CNY soon so the virus will spread very quickly if they cannot control it. It'll be in Europe by the end of CNY if not earlier.

is this the end of humanity?

What a shock - you're being deliberately thick again. I don't get how you think this makes clever points when it only ever makes you look like an idiot.

It's unfortunate, but it's well before the date for that kind of thing to be allowed. But you knew that.

And I'll let Wembley know that they've grown an extra 10,000 seats during lockdown.

Facts are hard, aren't they?

2,000 fans for league cup final.

fans under 18 cannot attend, people who are clinically extremely vulnerable or pregnant told not to apply for tickets"

Given this is outside, many vulnerable are vaccinated, and everyone asked to take PCR test, not convinced this is proportionate

Sock, that’s pretty much the best plan, give or take a point or two.

Initiatives to minimise deaths from a SARS pandemic form Dr Sock.

Drink more beer

Carry out regular vitamin d testing in winter, especially among blacks and asians.

Drink more beer

Get infection/hygiene control back under the management of the ward sisters/matrons.

Drink more beer

Build isolation hospitals on the coasts, make sure they have outside areas and patio doors to wheel patients into the fresh air. Make sure wards have windows that can be opened.

Drink more beer

Get people walking and cycling more and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.

Drink more beer.

Use low dose steroidal inhalers as soon as patient shows symptoms until symptoms disappear.

Drink more beer

Test every patient showing symptoms for pneumonia.

Drink more beer

Shoot the vulnerable to prevent them contracting covid.

Nuke beijing and wuhan.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Real serious and sustainable initiative to prepare for another pandemic would not involve spending billions, it would just be to encourage people to not be fat.

The NHS still promotes the food pyramid and eat-well plate.

Re: This coronavirus in China

That was then. This is now.

A couple of years ago nobody could have imagined the shit that we’ve all had to swallow because of an utterly underprepared NHS.

We now know that viruses are a major threat that will never go away, so we should pay the big bucks to be prepared, just as we pay big bucks to have a military prepared for conflicts we also hope don’t happen.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Can you imagine the headlines if, a couple of years ago, the press got hold of the fact that the NHS were sitting on a couple of billion just in case of a pandemic

They won't.

Haircut, beer, football; once those are back nobody will give a fuck.

Re: This coronavirus in China
I know what you mean, Mike.

I hope everyone is pissed off enough with lockdown to put political pressure on to make the tightwad cunts do what it takes to prepare the NHS well enough so we never lockdown everyone ever again.

It's endemic across many industries. Planning for possibilities is severely discouraged: wait for something to fuck up then (try to) fix it is the modern idiom

Imagine if your mobile phone company took the same approach. Fortunately clever people hold sway, but I'm not sure for how long.

Re: This coronavirus in China
The WHO’s pandemic strategy was updated as recently as Autumn 2019, so it wasn’t outdated when this all kicked off weeks later.

As for the bean counters saving the country money, that worked out well. How much have we been borrowed so far, I wonder?

I suspect the answer is that they left the NHS ill/un-prepared for such an event; absolute minimum of stocks like PPE - just enough to cope with a moderate 'flu season and an assumption that they could procure w hat was needed at the drop of a hat.

Some bean-counter somewhere put together a convincing enough PowerPoint presentation to "save the country money" and the existing "rule book" was out-dated. The government then acted on it.

He/She probably works at one of the Big 4 consultancies now.

There’s no way of dealing with a pandemic without upsetting someone, I just can’t understand why the, for one example among many, the UK government chose to ditch the well established strategy for mass virus outbreaks, which does not recommend quarantining the healthy, nor face masks for all, and instead followed the strategy laid out at Event 201, in October 2019, which was set up and attended by all the fat cats who are earning obscene amounts from how things have proceeded.

Why the fuck did we tear up the rule book and instead dance to the tune of a bunch of billionaires with such vested interests?

Re: This coronavirus in China
There's a phrase about equal unfairness that I can't remember what it is, but that.

Lily alluded to it earlier, avoid accusations of discrimination by fucking up everyone.

I'm not saying I agree with it and I hope now the vaccine offers that buffer that an approach more at your end of the scale is taken up in the event of a variant etc.

Re: This coronavirus in China
How is that any more unfair than the current system where employers are FORCED to furlough staff and many are literally not permitted to work?

So an employer has to pay 20% or whatever of the wages of someone who refuses to work, with the govt. paying the rest and then pay 100% of a replacement worker who they'd then need to pay off once fat worker returns?

Can't see that catching on to be honest.

Re: This coronavirus in China
I honestly don't know why people are so tribal over the conservatives or labour . They are as bad as eachother the vast majority of MPs on both sides are owned by the corporate lobby . It's an absolute shit show . Just look at that photo of John woodcock and mike gapes with the mad butcher of Saudi Arabia and to think Corbyn was an extremist in there eyes .but he wasnt . is the biggest piss take in the history of politics anywhere . And I ain't a lefty.

Re: This coronavirus in China
Employers are required, by law, to provide a safe working environment.

Allowing everyone back into the office just so a few selfish, pox-ridden fuckwits can go down the gym at lunchtime does not constitute providing a safe working environment.
