  1. Three hundred thousand and thirty four, nine hundred and seventy four thousand tests. What? Now we know why we have not seen her before now on the daily briefings
  2. He just used a common misconception getting it wrong again. Many people want their doctor to give them antibiotics when they wont work.
  3. Who wants to tell him that antibiotics dont work on a virus
  4. SO the number of deaths has doubled in the past 8 days, with over 1.6 million confirmed cases. This is a fatality rate of over 6% in confirmed cases.
  5. Not really a surprise, he didnt have much chance of being the Dems pick. Also dropping out now means that the remaining primaries can be cancelled, which may help slow the spread of Covid-19
  6. This is why America is some much worse than other countries
  7. So I have been playing this over the past few weekends. The lag is worse now than ever. Sometimes it can be over 10 seconds where you cant do anything, then everything happens instantly. I was even killed by an Orc as I couldnt attack, but as soon as the lag ended there was a stream of red numbers and my morale just plummeted to 0. It is really annoying. I can only imagine how bad this could be in a raid.
  8. Scotland's CMO, who does the daily briefings telling people not to go out unless it is essential was caught at her holiday home yesterday with her husband, 3 kinds and the dog. https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/5460581/coronavirus-scotland-catherine-calderwood-chief-medic-covid-19/?utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=scottishsuntwitter&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1586033299 She claimed that they were just there to make sure the property was secure, and then they stayed the night. They were pictured out walking on the local golf course. How do these people expect to get the public to follow the rules when they wont.
  9. The US have over 250000 cases and almost 7000 deaths, South Korea has just over 10000 cases and less than 200 deaths. Both countries had their first confirmed cases on the same day, 17/01/2020.. The US has around 6 times the population of South Korea but over 25 times the number of cases and 25 times as many deaths. If only Trump had acted as fast as the Koreans did.
  10. So we now have over 1 million confirmed cases world wide and over 50000 deaths. It took less than a week to go from 500000 cases to a million.
  11. Trumps says he knows Seoul better than anyone then proceeds to say it has population of 38 million which is more than any US city. Seoul only has a population of around 10 million. Why does he persist in making up such bullshit numbers that can be so easily fact checked . Given that he does that all the time you can never trust any number he gives you. https://news.sky.com/story/trump-gets-seoul-population-wrong-by-28-million-after-boasting-he-knows-south-korea-better-than-anybody-11966163 He also said New York doesnt need 30000 ventilators https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/trump-coronavirus-ventilators-fox-news-hannity-covid-19-symptoms-a9429661.html The when asked about this, he said he didnt say it and has a go at the journalist He is a complete bellend
  12. Yet in February he claimed that the number of cases would drop to 0 in a few days. That is not taking this seriously. What did they do in February to plan for this virus. Why is there an issue with protective gear for health workers, even now.
  13. If anyone wants to help the fight against Covid 19 then you could join the folding at home program https://foldingathome.org/
  14. The UK lock down was announce last Friday, so it has been a week. South Korea has announced that they have more recovered than are still infected. They really seem to have got this under control by acting so quickly and doing mass testing https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/52075063
  15. so the Prime Minister and the Health Secretory have both tested positive and the the chief medical office is showing symptoms. This come the day after Prince Charles also tested positive. All are showing mild symptoms, yet all bar the CMO got tested when the are front line health care staff that still cant get tested. As long as their symptoms where only mild they should just have self isolated like anyone else would have to do.
  16. Of course more tests can mean more cases, but South Korea, is way ahead of the US in tests by way behind on positive cases as they acted much quicker then just about any other country. Germany is upping the number of test to 500000 a week, which will increase the number of confirmed cases there but I suspect by a lower percentage the the US, as they have around half the cases of the US and have already done much more tests, and are further along then the US in terms of how long the virus has been active in the country.
  17. Looks like the US has nearly as may cases as Italy, and it is doubling every 3-4 days. By Easter, the date Trumps hopes everything goes back to normal there could be over 500000 cases assuming they can test enough people
  18. Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic. Also lots of Fox stuff that Disney recently bought including 30 seasons of The Simpsons. No need to go out for months
  19. How many will be getting Disney + in the UK now that it has just launched.
  20. Given that people are not practicing social distancing, the videos of Richmond Park are ridiculous, it will get a lot worse.
  21. So given that we are all advised to stay in doors for the foreseeable future what TV show do people recommend. I havent added anything from Disney + as it doesnt launch in the till the 24th March Travelers - Netflix The Expanse - Amazon Picard - Amzon Star Trek - Netflix Smallville - Amazon Prime Still Game - Netflix Suits - Netflix
  22. It may be that some of them would have died this year anyway, but many would not have. The youngest death in the UK is currently 41. Younger people will die from this. Well the number who die each year will end up balancing out over the next couple of years, the NHS is struggling and it is only a matter of time before the staff start having to make the horrible decision of who to treat and who to just let die as the dont have the resources to treat everyone
  23. The UK is on track with Italy, yet there are people moaning about not being able to go for a pint.
  24. All Trump had to do was acknowledge that people as scared, but that everything that can be done is being done. If people listen to and follow the advise from the CDC then America will get through this and be stronger for it. It is an easy question to answer, and sound presidential. Instead he sounded like a dick
