What's full lockdown mean?

 

Read the article mate. Basically everything business wise stops except medical/pharmaceutical services and food chain.

 

ETA and self isolation becomes mandatory. You can go for a walk, but only with the people you live with. That sort of thing.

Thought it would be easier just to get you to explain it!

Seems to make sense to give it a crack over when the Easter Holidays are going to be, as the schools will be closed and a fair few people not working anyway.

Piers on a proper rant this morning on GMB and I have to say I agree with every fucking word he's fucking saying.

You know you’re in trouble when you read things like this.

Harvey Weinstein is positive for the virus.

 

Given the lack of tests in the US, I’m not sure how that scumbag managed to get one. 
 

Hopefully he’s very, very, very sick from it.

I thought all restaurants were supposed to close on Friday. 

I don’t think it covered fast food restaurants.

They're next.   MacDonalds had cut everyone's hours down and were still flat out on the drive thru, no doubt making enough money. 

 

They've not made this decision out of the goodness of their heart.

My colleague's son, in the NZAF in Blenheim, has been on special training for the last 3 weeks: lots of "stuff" they dont normally do, extra PT, arms, the lot.

Does this include target practice where they were ordered to shoot the citizens instead of the bad guys?

I got this note from Gordon (Pistonbroke), from his hospital bed in Bielefeld, and he asked me to pass it on to "the lads":

 

After a rough night I'm feeling a bit better, being on drips with liquid medicine is having an effect.  Had all tests done for corona and have to wait 48 hours or thereabouts for the results.  8 people were taken to the city hospital with the same symptoms, but none of us has a high fever.  So we are all lined up to have a camera shoved down our airways to check on them and lungs. That is planned for today as I'm nil by mouth. I'll let you know more once I get the results from both the camera and the corona test...

Get well, Pissy. I'll try to step up my Rico-annoying game while you're recovering.

Canada have pulled out the Never Gonna Be Olympics. The formal death knell sounds. Time for Japan to accept some reality and postpone them.

So going off these stats there are/have been circa 100,000 symptomatic cases in the UK?

If it’s saying we’ve only reported 10% of cases wouldn’t that be nearer 500,000 symptomatic cases, as were up to 5000 plus reported cases at the moment.

No, 5,000 is 10% of 50,000. If we'd reported 1% of cases, then that would be 500,000 in all.

Rubbish at spelling as well. That's not how you spell 'nonce'.

The herd immunity supporters have gone awfully quiet round here.

It was a very optimistic leap to transfer the science studied for the use of vaccines on specific diseases to covid 19 with antibodies being generated from just catching it and getting better. Don't know much but one of the diseases we have vaccines for that herd immunity doesn't work for is flu and flu type viruses as they specifically have the ability to mutate into slightly different forms rendering the vaccine  antibodies useless to the newly shaped antigens on the virus. Thus you have to get an upgraded flu vaccine every year. As you can see I have been home schooling biology at weekend ! Perhaps Cummings could have read the BBC bitesize module on microorganisms it's all there for 13 year olds.

 

Anyway he is a knob and it's now hopefully obvious to all let's get it done voters that  herd immunity was another slogan just to ensure plenty of parasite no weath generation pensioners and pre existing burden on society patients caught the virus in order to balance the books for providing the needed bailout for businesses. 

I am cynical but have lived through conservative governments before. All this fawning over the chancellor and his bail out. Yes it needed but they will claw it back be under no illusions. The middle to lower escelons of society will be paying for this for next 30 years.

I reckon Rico took the initiative and tried poisoned him.
 

PB even posted a mock-up photo of a poisoned Russian spy...

    • This makes sense.   I'm sure an organisation like FIFA will see the value in waving goodbye to over a billion quid so that the AFCON and a few leagues can have plenty of time to finish their seasons without having to overwork the players.   After all, for FIFA, it's really always been about player welfare over money.
    • Jürgen Klopp has struck a realistic tone when discussing the likelihood of big money transfers arriving at Liverpool this summer.

      The fan reaction to the Reds deciding to pass on Timo Werner has been mixed with the club owners coming in for some criticism especially as he seemed to be a player that Klopp was reportedly very keen on.

      But on the other side of the coin, there were some astute voices casting doubt on whether the striker was all that keen on the move, especially as he was far from guaranteed to be a consistent starter, and indeed if would be a good fit for the side.

      Klopp spoke yesterday to Sky Germany (via The Mirror) regarding Werner and another player who has been linked in exciting midfielder Kai Havertz.

      And he said in the current climate, all best laid plans are out of the window.

      “There are a lot of good players on this planet.

      “Timo Werner is a great player, Kai Havertz is a great player.

      “Right time, opportunity - everything has to come together. Six, seven weeks ago, we didn't know if we could play again this year. 

      “If we hadn't played the second half of the season, we would have thought, 'OK, when can you really play football again?' And now it starts right away.

      “We act as if everything is already settled. It's not settled. 

      “We use this little loophole we've been left to play football again Everything else we have to see the moment it happens. 

      “We can't pretend now that everything's going to be fine in the future.

      “Discussing with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buying a player for £50-60m, we have to explain."

      Klopp raised a valid point when mentioning that Football clubs have a lot more to weigh up other than just comings and goings in the transfer window at this point of time.

      "There are all sorts of rumours in England about who Manchester United are going to pick, Chelsea are going to pick.

      "It's rather quiet here (at Liverpool) at the moment, I think it's safe to say. 

      “If you want to take it seriously and run a normal business and depend on income and have no idea how much you will earn... especially because we don't know when we can start playing with spectators again.

      "At the moment, all clubs are losing money. Without spectators, we have to pay back the season tickets and probably sell none next year. 

      “At least maybe without the first 10 or 15 games. The VIP areas won't be packed and the tickets won't be sold. This will have an impact on other partners and things will look a bit different.

      Going by what the manager said, it seems like the dream of seeing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Jadon Sancho, or Adama Traore wearing the Red of Liverpool may be on hold for the time being.

      On a more positive note, Klopp signalled the chance for fans to salute their heroes in grand style even if it has to be sometime during next season.

            “There comes a day when life will get back to normal.   “When someone has found the vaccine, when someone has found a solution to the problem, when infection rates are zero or below - that day will come eventually. Then we have the right to celebrate what we want to celebrate on that day.

      "If this is the 12th or 13th matchday of next season and we want to celebrate it - who is going to stop it? 

      “Then we still have the trophy and then we can drive it around town and stand on the bus. If other people then think that we are completely crazy, I honestly don't care.”

      “Can it then still be a special celebration? No question. It's different, but different is sometimes absolutely OK."

      As well as the global pandemic, the world has been unified by the tragic death of George Floyd under the watch of members of the Minneapolis Police force.

      People taking to streets has become the norm and Footballers have also been at the forefront making their views known on the matter including the Reds squad who "took a knee" at training last week.

      Klopp was extremely proud of the stance they took.

      “It's so natural for us that we didn't even think about sending a message at first. 

      "Because it's completely normal, nobody realised that we would have to say it again. But then the boys noticed it. Then they spontaneously decided to do it.

      "I have been very proud of the boys for a long time, but this was another extraordinary moment. When I saw them there and this photo was taken, I was really proud, because it is also an important message. 

      “No question about it."
