  2. There was a poll a few days ago that showed that people in the UK want the lockdown to continue, but the Government is planning to announce some relaxing on the lockdown on Sunday. I wonder if there will be much change to the number of people going out from Monday. Also it seems that BAEM are twice as likely to die from Covid-19 in the UK then white people. There is no agreed reason as to why this is the case, although these groups do have the highest levels of poverty which may be part of the problem.
  3. The weekly excess deaths, ie the number of deaths compared the the 5 year average, in Scotland , well falling is still really high
  4. My great uncle died of it around 10 days ago. He was in a care home, and fell and broke his hip. He was taking to hospital and as he had symptoms was test and confirmed positive. He died the next day. He also had underlying health conditions, namely COPD which effects the lungs
  5. Covid-19 as declared a pandemic 8 weeks ago. We know weeks before that that this was going to become an issue. Why did it take so long to start developing the app. Also the app being tested in the UK is centralised with users data shared with a central database and the NHS if the user declares that they have symptoms. The information commissioner's office has suggested that a decentralised approach would better protect users privacy. If people feel their privacy is being compromised then they may not use the app. There has also been talk of legal challenges to the app due to potential privacy concerns
  6. The UK now has the most deaths of any country in Europe, and yet they are still not doing contact tracing. The app is now being tested in the Isle of Wight, but this is far to late. It should have been ready weeks ago.
  7. Even if the warmer weather has some effect, it is going into Winter in the southern hemisphere. So this could lead to a lot more cases elsewhere in the world, especially in poorer countries that have little healthcare
  8. There is also a lot of people not working just now, so this is something to do. I would be interested to see what the difference between the income being generated now with the extra people playing is like compared to that of selling quest packs and old expansions. Perhaps they might keep more of the content free for everyone
  9. One that this may account for the extra deaths in the drop in people going to A&E when they should. People not getting treatment right away and waiting a few days till it is to late. Over the past month or so there has been a drop of 50% in visits to A&E.
  10. So the UK government has announced that it carried out 122000 test in the past day. They get to this figure by counting the test kits that have been mailed to people at home and to care homes even though they have actually tested these people. The kits account for around 40000 tests. Yet more bullshit figures from this government. Also we still dont have any contact tracing in place in the UK, so the chances of the lock down being loosened next week are slim.
  11. This is a little bit reassuring https://www.livescience.com/coronavirus-reinfections-were-false-positives.html Those that tested positive again were likely due to false positives, due to the test being unable to tell the difference between the live virus an d the dead virus
  12. The figures for the UK deaths needs some clarity, as starting yesterday they are now including care home deaths, thats is why there was a large jump in the number of deaths yesterday
  13. They are the percentage of the overall numbers. So the US has just over a third of all cases
  14. They have one for shoes as well https://www.amazon.co.uk/ULTRAVIOLET-TRAINER-STERILIZER-SANITIZER-DEODORIZER/dp/B00OBPZRBW/ref=pd_lpo_309_t_0/258-8230782-1763859?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00OBPZRBW&pd_rd_r=0b7b8cdf-2afe-4042-9908-5037c19532d8&pd_rd_w=inmJA&pd_rd_wg=D36N0&pf_rd_p=7b8e3b03-1439-4489-abd4-4a138cf4eca6&pf_rd_r=7Q7XP208ZWBTMBY8R6V6&psc=1&refRID=7Q7XP208ZWBTMBY8R6V6
  15. You can get UV light cases for phones https://www.amazon.co.uk/HFJ-YIE-Smartphone-Antibacteria-Disinfection/dp/B082VT71S8/ref=pd_lpo_107_t_0/258-8230782-1763859?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B082VT71S8&pd_rd_r=2ca4dd4a-95f0-4709-ba30-6ab12f1b251f&pd_rd_w=1Ix7j&pd_rd_wg=qMZvx&pf_rd_p=7b8e3b03-1439-4489-abd4-4a138cf4eca6&pf_rd_r=35DDDMZ7YFYTSGPFHJDF&psc=1&refRID=35DDDMZ7YFYTSGPFHJDF
  16. On the plus side the UK Home Secretary has just confirmed that shoplifting is down from this time last year. She also said the Governments message has been clear from day 1.
  17. Not if other s are taken down with him. At this point there is not much he could say to stop those that are going to vote for him doing so.
  18. They would be better trying to convince him that his time would better spent doing something else rather than the daily briefings. Pitch it to him that his time is to valuable to spend each day talking to the fake news. He would buy it
  19. Look at the date this was posted.
  20. You know some people will try this because of what he has said and either end up very ill in hospital, where they are more likely to get Covid-19., or they will die.
  21. Trump is not signing the cheques, his name is just appearing on them
  22. Some more information about the deaths in England and Wales, Scotland and NI Ireland will have their own figure separately . The overall death rate for the week ending 10/04/2020 was 18500 which is up around 8000 on a normal week. Of those deaths around 6200 were covid-19 related. So it looks like deaths for other sources are also up. This might have to do with people not seeking medical treatment when they should thinking that they should not being going to A & E just now. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52361519 Also the deaths this year are up 10000 compared to the average over the past 5 year. With the difference being the same amount as the Covid-19 deaths, which is perhaps a coincidence
  23. Why do I need to say what they added, all I said was they believe it is in the best interest of the people. I dont care what they have added, it doesnt affect me. If Clinton had won the election and she was President. How would you feel if her name was on these cheques. There is no way that you would not think that it was wrong.
  24. If you are a fan of Star Trek then Star Trek online is worth a look. All the content is free so there is plenty to do.
  25. That is a matter of opinion. They believe that what they added was to help the people even if you dont. Why does Trump's name have to appear on the cheques. They are not coming from him, even if some people think that, and I have see posts from people saying that they are only getting this money as Trump is a billionaire and that Obama could not afford to do this.
