78% developed heart issues. that is stunningly high. and in young people as well. this is going to fuck us up for a LONG time.
I don't think the stats are ridiculous, but I do think the article is a deliberate misrepresentation of the situation specifically designed to frighten people.
Imho it's the end of October now and we are at something like 11-12k daily. Failed by a factor of almost 5 AGAIN. Well it's probably better than failing by a factor of 20 or 50 or whatever the ridiculous "expert" estimates were earlier this year.It has now been claimed by one prominent “expert” that without additional “preventive actions” there will be 50k daily new cases by the end of October (now something like 2k I think) which is THE SAME RIDICULOUS FORECAST that was made every other month since about March/April.
Mate - new cases in .NL are through the roof.There was a scientist from the UK government's SAGE getting interviewed the other day in The Telegraph and when asked what is going to be the biggest problem this winter for extra mortalities and he replied ''Seasonal flu...''
Looking at the statistics in Europe while the infection rates are sky-rocketing, the mortality rates are well under control.
I've had the first colleague go down with it in Spain. He's off sick in isolation, but not needing hospitalization.
Some of the stuff that's going in the UK, particularly Wales and Scotland seems well over the top at this stage. Supermarkets not being able to sell anything other than essential items. Closing the border in case them dastardly English get in. Begging Westminster for more money to keep them in perpetual and endless lockdown until all risk of the virus is eliminated by vaccine.
Then you have Sadiq Khan, wanting London to be in severe lockdown, whilst his contemporary in Manchester is fighting to keep the city open.
When I was buying my watch today, I asked them how was the business and they said marginally down on normal, but not by much as many people who weren't going on holiday where using that money to buy watches.
Are they through the roof because of increased testing, or lack of social distancing?Mate - new cases in .NL are through the roof.
you got about 9,000 daily new cases - we have 24 and we have 33% more population
No, I am saying that the virus never went away. It was chugging along in the background, almost unnoticed due to lack of testing with the exception of hospital cases and then there is over confidence that it's over and now there is a spike. But some of that spike is down to increased testing. You couldn't get tested unless you were a medical worker for quite some time.Sewerage particle counts and test positivity rates both say community infection is growing exponentially in the Netherlands, and you pass that off on increased testing.
Yeah I suspect that the testing rates in a lot of places were too low and too focused on symptomatic ppl - chugging away is true. We are tackling that.No, I am saying that the virus never went away.

Those must be the K95 here because the Chinese manufacturer was called out on it by the government. Then after some media expose offered to replace them with proper ones at their cost. Not ever sure they did but who knows. The defective ones were held on to and then dumped on the market. Bloody good deal for these Chinese vendors. Send the virus over, sell you defective kit, take your money and their country is the first one on the mend vis-a-vis GDP.For the first weeks of the pandemic you couldn't get tested and then only you medical worker and you couldn't get face masks. And you still struggle to get N95 masks. Everyone's walking around with ones that come in boxes that state they are non-medical, stop droplets, but they're not to N95 specifications.
We have 14-14 1/2 million people in this province. We used to get close to 50,000 people wanting testing a day. Then they moved to appointment only and you can only test if you have symptoms so tests hovered in the 20,000s. Any time you see high 40,000s or a backlog of 90,000 you know the next day you're hitting all time highs - which for us is 900s. Haven't broke the 1,000 barrier yet.I cant BF looking up .nl - but our testing rates are around 17,000 a day in Melbourne - we were always doing around 7,000 a day - just in Melbourne = 5m popn - we are doing sewage testing too. esp in rural areas - if there a minute amount detected we swamp with testing.
Most of the restaurants in Italy don't open until 8pm and most people don't go out to eat to around 10pm.
"Italy is shutting cinemas, swimming pools and gyms from Monday in a further attempt to curb the rapid rise in coronavirus infections.
Bars and restaurants will have to close by 18:00 but shops and the majority of businesses will remain operating."
I am naturally a 7.30 - 8pm meal time or a bit later and I don't mind waiting if the roast needs another 30 mins or I'm busy but Ms family - well more her Dad - got really seriously anxious and angry if he waited much past 5.30- 6pm.That sounds like Barcelona. To be honest I don't eat until 1930-2000 anyway but I'm in a minority here.
In pharmaceutical terms, vaccines are not very profitable. Certainly, they may be widely administered, but they're low-priced and typically only administered once per year, if that.I need a vaccine every 6 to 12 months? A new gold mine industry is born.
good. then stop wearing masks, you have nothing to lose“I’m not a big emotional person, but I can tell you, this has changed me. I cry every single time I take a shower.”www.nbcnews.com

That might be because constant repetition does not magically make it any more reasonable or acceptable.I’m amazed that we still have to explain this stuff to people:
Why proposals to largely let the virus run its course—embraced by Donald Trump’s administration and others—are a false promisewww.scientificamerican.com
According to two people I was speaking to last Christmas in pharmaceutical sales in the UK, all that wining and dining of doctors and practice managers has all gone forbidden. Like many other sectors, it's now seen as a form of bribery unless you're spending less than 25 quid on the evening's entertainment.In pharmaceutical terms, vaccines are not very profitable. Certainly, they may be widely administered, but they're low-priced and typically only administered once per year, if that.
Pharmaceutical companies want people to take medicine daily, and to take that medicine for years. That is why pharma companies plough many, many millions into developing drugs like statins, and then spend more money on wining and dining doctors so as to persuade them to prescribe their new wonder drugs. That's the gold mine industry.
Did you randomly throw that last paragraph in to make you look clever?That might be because constant repetition does not magically make it any more reasonable or acceptable.
Fortunately, we can disregard all the misrepresentations, misleading statements and all the (medical) facts that conveniently have been left out of this article. We can do so because the article correctly states that "an ethical path" is needed. Articles like this do not even remotely try to tackle the ethical question and in fact prevent a useful discussion of such question.
This type of thinking is just the mainstream version of Cuckley's bare-chested leather jacket dude, it's just as useless.
But these funny little conspiracy theories on mainstream public health and medicine you are pushing are the perfect parallel to Pimp’s incel political podcasts.This type of thinking is just the mainstream version of Cuckley's bare-chested leather jacket dude, it's just as useless.
