Coronavirus outbreak

How are you quantifying the death rate, and among what sub samples (age, gender, ethnicity, mixture of the above, all of which are also deemed risk factors)? It’s clearly multifactorial. That was my question?
I'm not drilling too deep but I've probably put more thought into it than Johnson's "It's your own fault fatties" line.

Dunno. I’m not taking much notice of what he says
 
One of my colleagues has been taken off furlough and is out visiting factories today. Two timber frame companies this morning, not a mask in sight, no social distancing at all and only a couple of posters on the wall. He of course is wearing the full PPE we've been issued - plastic face guard, mask, gloves etc and he's getting laughed at. "fark Covid" as one guy said to him.

Honestly, these are the places where the virus will continue to spread, just as is happening in the food processing plants - 4 or 5 now. Schools getting shut etc.
 
Looks like Leicester is on its way to lockdown.Dont know how it’s going to be managed as it areas on the eastern side of the city Mayor of Leicester Peter Soulsby is more interested in finding reasons for not looking not to look at solutions

Edit Apparently the suggestion is to extend the current lockdown for a further two weeks.

Wales has the highest number of corona virus cases per 100,000 people than anywhere else in the UK.

It's surprising given their stricter lockdown rules and the fact that they won't allow people from England in.
The total caseload is likely more related to the prevalence at the time of loackdown than anything else.

The rate of decrease should be related to how well observed social distancing, track and trace etc has been.

What's the *current* rate of infection in Wales?

I've not done the maths, but eyeballing that it looks like a steeper decline than the overall UK so lower current per capita, which would indicate the lockdown and other measures to suppress have indeed been more effective than in England. But like I say, that's just eyeballing, which isn't a reliable statistical tool!

Is it surprising? It looked like much of their extra restrictions had naff all to do with coronavirus and everything to do with MS prejudices. It seemed especially counterproductive to keep advising to restrict all time outdoors (and more harshly than England ever did) and to stay near home when you do go out when we know the flipping thing spreads more easily indoors and it seems likely that it spreads more easily in built-up areas.

Sturgeon reported as saying that she ‘has no plans’ to quarantine tourists from England but it sounds as if she is keeping her options open. It’s news to me that she’s even allowed to do this. The Scottish Conservatives are arguing that she shouldn’t as it will harm tourism. You’d think if she genuinely wasn’t allowed to do it they would be pointing this out too.
Begs the question of how it could possibly be policed and enforced.
It would be much simpler if she could simply close the border.

You often make some quite out there and shoot from the hip comments on this thread without explanation.

Yours is opinion only. Handling of fruit and vegetables with bare hands varies heavily on cultural background and individual difference.

You are just very different from some others on this thread.
Maybe. But I'm not very different from most of the people I know. And collectively the people I know and associate with are extremely mindful of this virus, social distance and wear masks. Off the cuff? Hardly. You don't have to agree with what I say. And I always provide explanation. Maybe you should be a little more open to other people's point of view.
 
Latest govt dashboard shows hospitalizations essentially static.

We seem now to be no longer significantly reducing virus transmission.

We've had pre warning (see Bournemouth) that attitudes are not helping.

Why the fark are we opening pubs at all until rates are clearly falling, let alone on a farking Saturday??

Madness. All this effort to drive things down and both govt and a large proportion of people seem determined to go back where we just left.

farking insane.
