    Good to know you're back out! Hope you recover quickly too.

    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 :

    Ah, not really, I think people from the US that are on here would be better at that. I just get a bit obsessed during elections and when they're doing the latest coup/warmongering episode. And yeah for some reason Trump thinks it's fine to openly state stuff then deny he's ever said it like that clip showed, crazy that he's now doing it during this. At the rate he's going Biden might actually have a good chance in November.

    It's been a regular thing. Like the hundreds of thousands of deaths herd immunity would cause. People all over social media were saying huge numbers would die, but no they had to wait until the Imperial College findings to suddenly realise what many of us had been going mad about. Too hard to check the death rate at the time then google the UK population and use a calculator, needed a study for it instead. It took over a week of people going mental about schools being open until they closed them too. It's almost like they were enforcing measures that had been popular on twitter for days on end instead of having any real idea what the fuck they were doing. At least there's some type of lockdown currently in place and they seem willing to keep it going instead of being out on the streets like Bolsonaro in Brazil has been, saying "We’ll all die one day." I think we might be in trouble until there's way more testing and/or the lockdown is working better. Or maybe like Italy has done, we could get experts in from other countries to help. But maybe this gov is too full of itself at the moment for any of that. That could change if things get worse though.

    Sorry am tired and have been on the PS4 for most of the last 12 hours, then saw this but not sure why you linked it to me? Maybe my brain is too gone at the moment to realise why.

    Haha awesome. "He's the hero the UK deserves, but not the one it needs right now." I always have the mindset that I'd happily have some weed as long as I'm not feeling ill (haven't smoked it for over a year I don't think.) When I first have some after a while without it though the first smoke almost always gives me a paranoid feeling for a while and I have to drink with it too so anxiety doesn't flare up too bad. So fuck knows what I'd be like if I had some now. I'd definitely still smoke some now but would start by just having a couple of drags then leaving it for a while, then go back to it. The thought of smoking half a joint or more with all of this on my head + weed paranoia makes me cringe. Reminds me I still have an almost full bottle of baileys and keep saying I'll have some soon but still haven't. Might get some a bit later.

    Sorry to read this and hope there's some response from your friend matty. It's horrible to see such a short time frame for someone in that situation. I follow Michael Rosen on twitter and saw him tweeting about his illness early on. He thought he had it, then was better and thought it might not have been this, then I saw a tweet from him days later describing an even worse state. At that point I feared checking back on him then saw on Guardian earlier that he's in intensive care. It's a gutter to know so many are going through this, especially where people feel better then it starts up again even worse. Our governments have to be held to account properly now so that we don't ever see something like this spreading around the world so badly again with such a collective failure from them. A total mess of a response that's cost so many lives and that'll cost many thousands more before it's over.

    He's no Tom Dr William Professor Pike. He's just a pale, shallow imitation. I bet sky couldn't even afford to get him on the cheap bastards.

    I think the confusion is because his name is William Thomas Pike : https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.03.25.20041475v1.article-info Or that from searching around you can find Tom Pike, William Thomas Pike, Professor William Pike or Dr Tom Pike. He needs to get this sorted out I think and make sure people use the right name. I'm voting for Professor Thomas Dr.

    Rate the last game you've played...

    Have been playing Yakuza 0 lately, totally new to the series. Great game so far (am at chapter 5 now) and really enjoying going around the city and doing minigames that it has too. As usual I didn't have any expectations for the main story but have been surprised how good it's been so far. Not sure when I'll get back to it though as I'm now playing Yakuza 6 that I just got and have ordered Kiwami 2 as well. I'm not bothered about playing the series in the right order which my buying choice clearly shows, instead just want to play both of the more recent games made with the Dragon Engine because the whole thing looks so much better. 6 doesn't have pool or bowling minigames so am a bit gutted at that, good to see it has outrun though and super hang on in the arcade and there's still plenty of stuff I haven't discovered yet. I'm regularly laughing out loud at stuff that's happening too which is a good break from the more serious games I usually play. The fighting styles in 0 are another thing that I like so far and the ability to switch to 1st person is awesome for roaming around the city in on 6 (and the other recent games), so am glad they added that. I guess I could be playing this series quite a bit from here on out, looking forward to it and should've got into it years ago really.

    Another couple of bits on where this came from : The report states that : But it's only brought up right at the end of the report as a suggestion in the discussion section. And this is from The Guardian on the early strategy of the Imperial College and modelling in general : https://www.theguardian.com/science/2020/mar/25/coronavirus-exposes-the-problems-and-pitfalls-of-modelling

    I think he sounds fucking mental. This is highly likely to be wrong as well : By the time it gets to October we should be way more prepared to deal with this and could be instantly ready to carry out mass testing and contact tracing (neither of which are even mentioned on the graph!) for anything that starts up again. There's already talk of us getting hold of millions of testing kits shortly, even if that fails by the time October is here we'd surely have some form of doing this which means that the second surge in cases on that graph would no longer apply. The gov and health services would have a lot of extra knowledge of what has and hasn't worked in other countries by October as well, along with half a year to prepare for it.

    This from WaPo backs up part of what they said in the Buzzfeed article too (I thought Buzzfeed had linked to this at first but can't find it there now after going back to check) : https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/national/coronavirus-us-cases-deaths/ I think the NYTimes might back them up as well here, but I'm not making an account just to read it : https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/15/us/united-states-coronavirus-response.html

    I think Buzzfeed is shit, but get the feeling that this isn't all just made up fictional medical characters. The US has fucked up almost everything so far so I think a lot of deaths won't have been reported either. And I really doubt that buzzfeed will be the only ones to have reported on this subject by the time we're done dealing with this virus. The conspiracy thing was what I added in at the end and not meant to refer to anything you said. The point was that no matter what the situation is with this virus we still have these problems : medical staff can't deal with this big influx on top of what they already had, people don't deserve to be exposed to and then left to die to this, and we still have no vaccine. So a lot of things might not turn out to be as bad as we first thought, like the death rate for example, but I don't think there's much of a reason to be positive about what's happening either. Our governments could've avoided so much of this turning out like this (China included) but of course they haven't so we have to deal with it for the time being.

    A lot of US deaths might not have been reported : Doctors And Nurses Say More People Are Dying Of COVID-19 In The US Than We Know And even if the death rate ends up being low we can clearly see that medical staff around the world are having massive problems with this. Adding a new virus like this on top of what medical staff already had to deal with isn't something that they're able to cope with properly. But that's of no concern to right wingers. They just want their saviours to come out of this looking good (their leaders and/or the holy economy.) They don't give a fuck about hospitals being overrun or all of the deaths that could be prevented. Instead they make out like the holy economy has to be saved because more deaths could result from that if it isn't immediately back up and running. Even though the central banks could just type more numbers into accounts to help anybody instead of bailing out the rich, and throwing a few morsels out to the poor to keep most of them alive so they can slave away for the economy again when it's back up and running. And even if this whole thing has been a big conspiracy to say, transfer wealth to the rich in one of the most psychopathic events in the history of humanity and/or some other insane reason(s), medical staff around the world still can't cope with these massive influxes, people at risk of dying don't deserve to be exposed to it, and there's still no vaccine. Holding out for another month or two in the hope that we can get this under control is still the best thing to do.
