    Quite. From that Hammer v Dance article, I’m now in no doubt the UK and US were of the opinion to ride it out as quickly as possible, regardless of how many died & keep the economy on track-ish. I’d hope the penny dropped when the “science changed” and they realised the death rates would be more than expected. In reality, I think it was peer pressure from the public & other countries etc which made them change their tune. The Hammer v Dance article says we won’t see a benefit from the lockdown says we won’t see a slow down in cases for 12 days (which is Saturday) before they start to calm down. Slow down in deaths is another 7+ days after that. Realistically, I don’t think we’re going to see many improvements until the mid-end of April, by which time, unfortunately, death rates will be significantly higher than they are today. Below graph is Italy. We’d tacked similar, deviated away and are now tracking similar to them again (we’ve also changed how our deaths were recorded). I believe Italy initiated their lockdown 7/3. So it’s take 3 weeks to see a stabilisation of deaths....and it’s still a huge figure dying each day. Another 3/4 weeks of lockdown until they can think about lifting it? My view on this has changed significantly since being in a pub outside Vicarage Road a month ago. On that day I was absolutely if the view of “Its only flu”, fast forward 10 days to Atletico going to the game thinking it didn’t feel right and now literally not knowing how bad it could get. I appreciate it’s not a great look but then again, I’m not a paid government official / health expert paid to make these decisions.

    This is “The Hammer & The Dance” that Spybee mentioned. https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Probably already been posted but now harm re-reading again. It does make sense. Interesting that as we farted about for so long, our hammer is now quite hard & that there won’t be any seen benefit from lockdown for at least 12 days. Hopefully this time next week, we start to see numbers go down. Let’s just hope they aren’t starting from an astronomically high figure. I also like that the articles title sounds like a Game Of Thrones episode.

    Apologies, you are right. This can’t have been updated when I looked earlier...

    No, a significant reduction yesterday. Lets hope the trend stays that way.

    When there is a vaccine, I wonder how it’ll be distributed? Like Contagion, I could genuinely see a lottery system to roll it out.

    Might have been. Dunno. A full remaster for the Switch would be unreal. If they are doing the Galaxy games, they might do Twilight Princess as well.

    Nintendo Switch

    Wonder if there will be any remastered version of Ocarina of Time? I could never get into Majorca’s Mask or Wind Waker. A remastered Goldeneye or Perfect Dark would be prettay, prettay, prettay good. Although as Microsoft own Rare these days (or at least they did), probably unlikely. Sure I read that while 4 is being delayed, they are remastering the Cube remasters of the Metroid Prime games.

    Finally, some good news... https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-03-30-sources-nintendo-switch-2020-line-up-dominated-by-mario-games-old-and-new If you can’t be arsed to click it, it basically says to celebrate 35 years of Mario, they are remastering & re-releasing Mario 64, Mario Sunshine, the Mario Galaxies and Mario World 3D, there is a new Paper Mario coming and even though not in the article, a new Mario Kart is rumoured to be the big Christmas game. Have to admit, I’m pretty excited about some of these remasters. I won’t have played Mario 64 since 1997 or something and it was an unbelievable game, I’ll have forgotten most of the best bit. I had Mario Sunshine on the GameCube but it wasn’t the best game, it was merely a 9/10 game rather than a >=9.5/10 game. The Mario Galaxy games on the Wii were brilliant. I’m not sure how much more powerful the Switch is than the Wii so I’ll be interested to see how much better it looks. Also, it’ll be a bit of a different dynamic without the wand. Ive never played Mario World 3D on the Wii-U so I’ll be interested in that. Depending on when they all come out, I’ll be getting that one first. In summary...

    I’m sure this surprises absolutely nobody.

    This lockdown will be at least 6 weeks, won’t it? Probably 9 or 12.
