Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

Won't easing/ending restrictions cause more hospitalisations, meaning that medical professionals from other departments (such as oncology etc) have to be drafted in to help with the increased hospitalisation numbers and resulting in their own departments struggling to function properly? 

 

This is an issue that the open things up crowd never seem to acknowledge and just gloss over it? If we do ease restrictions, are we just going to leave the increasing number of covid patients without any medical treatment so that other departments can still function properly?

Hopefully this is the last lockdown but it will only work if it is properly policed and enforced. If a few 1000s were arrested and given big £1000 fines, word of mouth would discourage others. I’d set up road blocks on motorway slip roads and stopping cars with 2 occupants and asking where they are going. No reason for 2 or more people to be out in car unless they are car sharing on the way to work. In the same vein, arrest every fucker who goes on an anti lockdown protest and fine them. 

One thing this virus has shown us is that a minority of people dont give a fuck about other people. Our local park is packed every night with teenagers, parents and dog walkers all in big groups whilst our elderly vulnerable neighbours are terrified and have been shielding for months now. Drives me fucking mad.

Exactly. The current shitshow is what happens when you lose control, hospitals brought to their knees through the number of Covid patients and pushing 1000 deaths a day.

 

Having to lock down is horrendous, not doing so would make things much, much worse. Thank fuck we belatedly veered away from the 'let it rip' herd immunity dickheads last March and now.

Captain; Whenever I’m unsure or starting to question my own opinions I tend to stop and look around at who is saying the opposite of what I believe. In recent history it’s been Johnson, Gove, Farage, Trump etc and that usually snaps me back to reality.


Similar to your post above I’d have a serious look at who’s agreeing with you and that should be a sobering realisation in itself.

Well I don’t know about that, what I do know is that my family is falling apart before my eyes.

Shoot one on national television.

Maybe, yes, but obversely, during restrictions in Melbourne no one was going near hospitals for anything other than suspected covid either.

It's not like lockdown ostensibly freed up hospitals to go about their other life-saving preventative work.

I'm a year overdue on my (hereditary) colonoscopy check-up, my pancreas ultrasound.

No one called me in during lockdown because the coast was clear.

 

I'm no opponent of lockdown - all this is a fairly imprecise science despite what "experts" tell us - but to suggest it has facilitated business as usual for hospitals, I don't reckon.

The guidance is clear. Stay at home unless it’s work or going to the shops to buy food. It’s not fucking rocket science. People see mass protests on the telly and they think well if those cunts can go out and meet up without any sanction then so can I. This will never end if we all think it doesn’t apply to us.

Not in the middle of a super contagious pandemic it isn't.

But they aren't illegal. 

 

So any protest should be banned? Including protests around Black Lives Matter?

That’s like saying in the middle of the blitz, it’s a human right to turn on the lights. You can protest on line, you don’t have to meet up to do it.

A temporary ban on them until all this shit has cleared up would be a sensible idea.

My mum died of cancer less than 6 months ago in the midst of all this and you know that you horrible twat 

 

Fuck you SD you've gone too far now. You should have been banned a long time ago. Absolute scumbag 

 

I asked you how you would feel if I said the same kind of thing about you that you've been saying about me. Quite disingenuous to claim that I was actually saying it.

If you fail to see why in this instance then you're part of the problem.

Yes. All mass gatherings should be banned and the selfish fuckers fined £1000 each for attending. It’s really not hard to stay at home for 6 weeks to keep 500,000 vulnerable people alive.
