Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

It's good to see that Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson's social distancing measures have had the desired effect, as shown by his dad appearing on This Morning and telling the country that he still intends to go to the pub. 

 

Army on the streets. Within 2 weeks. It's nailed on.

The UK's reaction stinks of Brexit. The first big opportunity to do their own thing with no interference from Europe and they fuck it up. I'm no expert but following the lead from countries that have been through this before seems like common sense.

 

I have read some reports of the EU banning sales of medical equipment to non EU countries, I don't think it will have any effect this time round but when COVID-22 comes around you will be on your own.

You can't help but think these clowns have tried to solve this issue on the cheap knowing we'll have to print a shit load of money for their preferred Brexit. This pandemic has fucked them squarely in their collective asses now. So many people and businesses are going to go to the wall over the next few months that it's going to alter what Boris does in the trade talks.

407 new cases in last 24 hours.

 

Number of deaths to be announced later.

 

Around 2,000 people die every day in this country. I wonder if perhaps it would be more useful to present coronavirus deaths as a proportion of total deaths, that would maybe provide a better indication of the ebb and flow of the virus.

Don't get it, why would the total number of deaths matter?

Nicola Sturgeon and Scottish government showing impressive leadership on tv here at the moment in sharp contrast to Johnson’s rabbit in the headlights performance yesterday

She always does her. I'd have her over anyone in the Tory or Labour government in charge. Especially with something like this. She isn't arrogant enough not to implement the best practices evidenced abroad and is strong enough to follow through with difficult decisions no matter what corporation loses out so long as it saves lives. She is also strong enough to follow through live on TV but carry on speaking.

I would have thought Brexit will be put on hold, it would be madness to try and go ahead with talks until this pandemic is under control. I can't see December being realistic anymore, unless your Government are convinced that self harming is the way to go.

I don't know, I just feel it may give a better idea of the impact the virus is having? I'm spitballing really.

 

Maybe we could get a situation where the number of deaths slows down as we move into summer, as it does with other viruses, but the number of deaths due to coronavirus as a proportion of total deaths is remaining constant or even increasing.

Looking at some of the braindead "life goes on, let's go the pub" reactions on social media/in real life, I'm beginning to understand how Jeff Goldblum's character felt in Independence Day.

VW are stopping their production in Europe for the next 2-3 weeks at least, although their sites in China have started working again.

Well it sounds like a competent version of what the UK are stumbling towards, yes. We have had nothing with over 100 people for a couple of weeks now though and schools, pubs restaurants, etc shut from this week. It's hopefully a lot more contained. 

They are all (governments) panicking, they are all either late or overreacting, or posing for cameras and showing leadership with tough measures nobody implements and so on, mostly nobody in Europe is prepared or fully know what they are doing.

 

There is generally chaos everywhere,which will gradually transform into some kind of coherent and coordinated approach, and it may all come down to how responsible and disciplined the particular population is.

I'm always happy to have a pop at these cunts running the country and all the Brexit biffs, but the EU has hardly been a model of how to handle this virus, they've been as shite as us. They might have made changes before us, but not really before the point in the curve. The US is the same.

Im not saying the EU have done anything well here I'm making the point that I think Boris decided now was the time to show everyone how great and independent the UK are and he has undoubtedly cost more lives than was necessary in doing so.

    • John Barnes says he does believe Liverpool will regret missing out on the signature of Timo Werner because he was not fully committed to the joining them.

      Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the RB Leipzig striker, despite the widely held view that the Reds were in prime position to seal the transfer.
        The news may have come as a shock as well as some disappointment to Liverpool fans who were looking forward to have another class forward joining the ranks.

      But it seems the only set of individuals not surprised were the club hierarchy themselves who were not rushed into reacting and engage in a bidding war with the West London club.

      John Barnes believes there is a clear reason for that as he explained to BonusCodeBets(via The Mirror).

      “Liverpool want players that want to play for Liverpool. I'm sure a lot of people were after [Virgil] van Dijk, but he wanted to come to Liverpool.

      "If they don't get a move on and Manchester City, Arsenal or Chelsea come in for him and he decides to go there, that's not the sort of player you want anyway.

      "Because he'll just go where they're going to pay him more money or he wasn't that committed to wanting to come to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      Jürgen Klopp does things in a very measured and strategic way, almost testing the nerve of the player regarding how much he wants to play for the club.

      Patience is the key and when they do sign on the dotted line, Klopp doesn’t just throw them to the wolves, instead he waits for the right time to bed them into the lineup.

      It could be the case that Klopp believed that Werner would grow impatient with that type of process, and therefore he was not the right man for the club.  

      Barnes believes that Werner may have failed the Klopp test and cited recent examples of World Class talents who were more than willing to join the Reds.

      "I don't think they have to get a move on, they didn't get a move on with Van Dijk or Alisson and a lot of people wanted them to, it's because they wanted to come. 

      “This is a test to see if he really wants to come and play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      “Considering how things have panned out it seems Werner didn't pass Klopp's test, but at the same time Liverpool - who didn't meet the deadline - failed the forward's too.”

      Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp agreed with his former club not purchasing Werner and questioned where he would fit in the lineup.

      “Who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Mane, Firmino, Salah?

      “It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.

      “Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do. He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think ‘I wish we had signed him.

      “For Liverpool, they have got to look at it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think, ‘would it be worth the risk to bring in another player.

      “They have three top-class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.”
