All official stats in this country have become irrelevant now all potential cases are not being tested.

If you don't test then you appear to have a very high number of deaths per 100 cases which is exactly what I would have thought the government would not want but maybe they want the panic to continue, who knows.

Must make life for health professionals very difficult, you have my best wishes doing what at the best of times is a pressurised job.

I'm not to good with computers, and I can honestly say that not a single person on the close I live in, either has a computer or would know how to operate one if they had, and I'm being genuine with that comment. 

Totally true. Many people just don't get that  to many of the older generation computers are a complete mystery,

It'll mean some promoters have got to isolate too, so how will that work as well.

At 76-years of age, I'm the youngest person living in my immediate area, and if I've got to self isolate, how do I get thing like milk and bread to keep me going???  

Easy , just go out and panic buy . take a leaf out of everyone elses book ! 

also how do the goverment advise the people about how to go about things when they dont even know enough about the virus itself ? done a wee bit if shopping and i was amazed at the number of people who were buying fresh produce instead of safe tinned items that last a long time ....    :drink: included !

A lot of towns are setting up community groups of volunteers who will get shopping,  medicines etc for the elderly. Try phoning your local council to see if they can give you a phone number for one near you.

Thanks, I will do.

I understand.

Nobody died previously. 

Everyone lived infinite lives.

Thank god it is NOT taking as many lives as the flu yet.

The world is losing its '****' already. 
 

Public Health England told ITV News: "The number of flu cases and deaths due to flu-related complications varies each flu season.

"The average number of deaths in England for the last five seasons, 2014/15 to 2018/19, was 17,000 deaths annually.

"This ranged from 1,692 deaths last season, 2018/19, to 28,330 deaths in 2014/15."


God forbid, in the current sensationalist climate, this virus approaches anything remotely close to those figures.

I don't understand what you're saying... Are you saying you're not going to take it seriously until the death toll passes that of the flu?

If you look back through the thread you'll see I took it deadly seriously from day 1 advising the screensport bloke to watch the BBC documentary... All I've seen you do is bang on about the blummin flu!

I'm asking why you didn't take 28,000 people dying from a virus seriously..

But you do take 35... are lives taken by the flu unimportant?

Besides, I was replying to a poster sharing something that was mocking the flu.

Personally an average of 17,000 deaths annually is not something to be mocked, but each to their own.
