The Observer just over a week ago ran some numbers and a similar article called The Hammer and The Dance was doing the rounds, showing that suppression was not possible, and trying to supress things would in the long term be more damaging. I'm not qualified to know what the best path is, but I can guarantee you that there are no good ones.

 

That article is one I've had bookmarked for a while and have gone back to it a few times. He's not saying suppression isn't possible and would be more damaging (maybe The Observer gave that impression or something), he wants us to fight it.

 

If some of you can remember I linked a clip from channel 4 news a while back where a guy was on screen being interviewed with his head in his hands at the herd immunity thing (where the clip got removed from twitter and then it was edited after being posted again). He couldn't believe what we were doing and said we needed to lockdown fast. That's the same guy who wrote the article. He concludes with this :

 

Quote

On one side, countries can go the mitigation route: create a massive epidemic, overwhelm the healthcare system, drive the death of millions of people, and release new mutations of this virus in the wild.

On the other, countries can fight. They can lock down for a few weeks to buy us time, create an educated action plan, and control this virus until we have a vaccine.

Governments around the world today, including some such as the US, the UK or Switzerland have so far chosen the mitigation path.

That means they’re giving up without a fight. They see other countries having successfully fought this, but they say: “We can’t do that!”

What if Churchill had said the same thing? “Nazis are already everywhere in Europe. We can’t fight them. Let’s just give up.” This is what many governments around the world are doing today. They’re not giving you a chance to fight this. You have to demand it.

When our new moee caring and sharing society emerges from the coronavirus recovery, we shouldn't forget people like Toby Young. Get their heads on spikes.

Do I get his head for my spike before or after he's dead? 

I'm afraid it'll be remaining where it is for the forthcoming series next year of "Slash in my attic", where various members of the public get the opportunity to piss on his cold, dead body.

I tested positive for the virus but am out of hospital now. Just feel light-headed as fuck due to the blood thinners.

 

There wasn't many young people in hospital with the virus, I was only in there due to the blood clots in my lungs. The 'younger' people tended to be fat, conversely I saw very old people with the virus that appeared to be dealing with it okay, their main issues were the complete inability to care for themselves such as incontinence, feeding, etc but that's probably their general level of independence.

 

Fortunately I did not get close to the ICU, so can't comment on the demographic in there.

 

There appeared to be plenty PPE available for staff and enough beds but this is just the tip of the iceberg.


Good to hear you’re feeling better and up and about.

All I can say is that that doesn't reflect my experiences. The train was virtually empty this morning, as was Liverpool city centre. Supermarkets are tightly regulating numbers of customers at any one time.

I meant to comment on Toby Young earlier. He’s going to have to be dealt with, isn’t he? Sticking with the rat theme....

You really have to hope this massive cunt gets it, gets trapped in his own attic, and spends his last few minutes on the planet being shat on by rats.

Ideally everyone on this list gets the most severe version of it.

Have a safe recovery!

 

Been a few articles stating that the majority (70-80%) of "young" patients in the hospitals in countries like the Netherlands and the UK are obese. Would make sense.

I personally won't believe this until I've heard it from Turdseye

No, I assume @Elite is very handsome and in shape and has been unlucky. 


He is pretty sexy, you’re right. You should apologise for the confusion though. It definitely read like you were implying he’s a fat cunt.

I think it's about 70% of patients overall here that are obese. 

 

That might just be the ones in ICU though.

Obesity

 

Meanwhile, Diederik Gommers, chairman of the Dutch intensive care association, told television talk show Jinek on Friday evening that 66% to 80% of corona patients on intensive care wards that he had seen are overweight. The reason has not yet been investigated, but Gommers said it could be linked to the prevalence of diabetes among obese people, which would make them more vulnerable to the virus. In addition, the extra weight can also make breathing more difficult, he said. A specialist on the programme gave a similar picture. ‘Almost all the patients on an IC ward are overweight,’ Peter van der Voort of Groningen University’s teaching hospital said. ‘We don’t know why, but it is very noticeable.’

Just got sky news on watching the presser with the governor of New York. First person in American politics actually talking sense.


And he’s got PowerPoint presentations. Our government aren’t that far advanced.
