Some people just dont think this virus is serious  :o

Tell me about it Kev, just been for my walk and had two rows with cyclists who think the rules don't apply to them, but that's normal for cyclists.🙄

80% of us will get coronavirus': Scientific adviser to the Government claims there is no more risk at work than at home and insists we 'cannot hide from it forever' - before No 10 contradicts him

Little snippet from an article I just seen. Adviser is right. This shouldn't put life on hold. If we get it we get it. 
I did The first 2 weeks of lockdown except for work then realised what BS they are telling us

You may be right but who in their right mind would actually go out looking for it?

If you got it Foster, do you think you will be OK? Did the advisor give you any idea on that? You may just feel unwell for a couple of days, or you could end up dead.
What have we done?
And what have we become
In this distance from our Mother
From the gates of late Eden?

Anyone who breaks the rules is being selfish and reckless, people will die as a result. Just stupid.

Most of us will have already had it and don't even know weve had it.

We CANNOT be on "lockdown" for the long term. It will be normal for a lot of people, we can't afford that to happen.

No exit plan from lock down, what happens if we are still the same in 3 weeks..if that turns Into another 3 months..you Know the rest.

Hey Foster,have you had it?
You don't know do you?
Have you given it to someone else who might have a low immune system old or young?
You don't know do you,and respectfully I don't think you care either.
Stay on lockdown and don't be a potential killer of a doctor or nurse or who else in your own family.

There's no plan to exit the lockdown because we are nowhere near exiting the lockdown 😷

and therein lies the problem, because you are unknowingly transmitting it to others, many of them with a weaker immune system than yourself.

I am quite happy with a 3 month lock down and martial law if that's what it takes to get our world back.

Plenty of older people with same mind frame

It's not an age thing, its just that there are plenty of selfish, small minded people who will not learn until it effects them.... with the same mind frame.

I work out in this everyday and the amount of people that are around is nuts. Even in the rural areas although i guess that is more city folk going for a 'nice day out'.

I think they should be dragging cyclist in to use in vaccine testing.
Inject them, put a tracker on them, let them loose among like minded morons then drag them back in after 10 days to see if the vaccine has worked

Estimates today suggest that fewer than 10% of the UK have 'already had it'. Not most as you suggest.


The original plan for vulnerable people was 12 weeks, we're halfway through the 4th week of that, I will be amazed if it isn't scaled back in mid June, as long as the vast majority adhere to the measures now.


You're kidding yourself reading some of your posts (The Archons may have got to you) and your attitude to the crisis stinks to be honest.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/09/the-cluster-effect-how-social-gatherings-were-rocket-fuel-for-coronavirus

Interesting article basically saying most infections spread from large parties, celebrations or gatherings, as opposed to visting the supermarket etc.  Attending football matches would clearly come under the heading of large gatherings, which doesn't point to an early return of live matches.

I go out daily on my bike, I keep safe distances, wear a helmet, stay off the pavement etc...
Should I really be a guinea pig?
What about people vaping and smoking ,happily blowing the virus metres and across people waiting in queues to get shopping ?

For the r3cord I shouted expletives at two cyclists this morning who have no understanding of single file....but walkers can be just as bad.

Yes, from my garden.

High numbers today. Still seeing groups of more than 2 walk by on the trail near mine. Also saw a funeral with 50+ yesterday - is that allowed?!

Actually the figures released daily are ONLY those who died in hospital. It doesn’t include those who die at home or in residential / nursing homes.

This does not reflect the real death toll

All the different approaches need to be looked at when all this is on the decline for accurate comparisons. It will be very interesting to compare the different approaches, particularly Sweden's!
