    My son and I went for a couple of drinks in the supporters bar after this fantastic game. On leaving and in high spirts when we came out, blow me was the Hearts team bus not parked right there outside the club shop with all their players getting on. To my surprise I regressed 40 years by dancing around, waving my scarf, singing going down, going down etc. Will always remember the look on Naismiths face as he watched, it wasnt anger more just shock that an old bloke like me would do this. Funny what football can do to you. Hope it comes back soon.

    I was in 3rd year at secondary school during the 1957/8 pandemic I was the only boy in an all-male class of 36 who was not infected. Neither my parents nor my younger brother picked it up. I don't remember any great panic at the time.

    The problem is as Hiram has been able to show there are other "experts" who disagree.. Until sufficient data is available to show overwhelming agreement for one course of action I think the correct decision is to err on the side of caution, where I have some sympathy for Hiram et al is the initial nonchalant approach by the government of followed by panic has worsened the situation both in terms of reality and of public trust & confidence in our ability to deal with the situation.

    What absolute bollocks. If anything Sturgeon has been leading the way in protecting Scots from the virus. Working WITH the UK Government while, when the need was felt, implementing measures ahead of the rest of the UK. The Westminster Government have been bloody minded by NOT working with the EU to obtain vital medical supplies and ventilators because, in their words, we are no longer part of the EU. Absolutely shocking behaviour.

    Tesco Renfrew is generally empty so we took a run down to the big one in Port Glasgow for the 9-10 restricted time. We weren't challenged re age (booooo!) but we couldn't go in together, one trolley, one person. The missus stayed outside and I went in and apparently missed the stooshie at the front door. There's a porch with two side doors then the store entrance itself, the porch barriered to make one side entry, the other exit. Along comes wee manky jakey ned and proceeds to try to enter through the exit. Wee wummin tells him he can't get in that way and that it's elderly and vulnerable only, amyway, he then proceeds to shout abuse at her - "f*cking fat speccy c*nt", "I'll have you" were among the phrases the missus quoted. Apparently said he wouldn't be back... Just grateful she stayed outside and not me, think there's a fair chance I'd be in jail right now if I'd witnessed it - got to stand up for fellow fat, speccy c*unts.

    Is it here ? Or is this presently a test, a wee trial ? Will we end up with no freedoms ? A Pharmacist phoned up Radio 5Live yesterday complaining there was still too many Cars on the road making non essential journeys. The presenter agreed with him. How did they both know the reasons folk were driving their vehicles ? It's shite propaganda like this that will get every decent member of the public banned from driving.

    OK I'll try. Briefly, I'm afraid... This thread has already offered several links to many leading health experts, epidemiologists and other health professionals - worldwide - who believe the CV19 data is as useful as wet toilet paper, the lockdowns to be disproportionate and the doom-laden pronouncements are overkill...

    Alex Thomson (in his ongoing cv19 reports from Scotland) was at Rashielee Care Home down in Erskine. Heroines, all the workers there. Despite my usual unemotional outlook, I was very moved by what I saw. The residents - often confused and puzzled - the staff finding it impossible in the light of humanity to maintain social distancing. great reporting.

    The data on Covid-19 differs wildly from country to country. Look at the figures for Italy and Germany. At the time of writing, Italy has 69,176 recorded cases and 6,820 deaths, a rate of 9.9 per cent. Germany has 32,986 cases and 157 deaths, a rate of 0.5 per cent. Do we think that the strain of virus is so different in these nearby countries as to virtually represent different diseases? Or that the populations are so different in their susceptibility to the virus that the death rate can vary more than twentyfold? If not, we ought to suspect systematic error, that the Covid-19 data we are seeing from different countries is not directly comparable. Look at other rates: Spain 7.1 per cent, US 1.3 per cent, Switzerland 1.3 per cent, France 4.3 per cent, South Korea 1.3 per cent, Iran 7.8 per cent. We may very well be comparing apples with oranges. Recording cases where there was a positive test for the virus is a very different thing to recording the virus as the main cause of death. Early evidence from Iceland, a country with a very strong organisation for wide testing within the population, suggests that as many as 50 per cent of infections are almost completely asymptomatic. Most of the rest are relatively minor. In fact, Iceland’s figures, 648 cases and two attributed deaths, give a death rate of 0.3 per cent. As population testing becomes more widespread elsewhere in the world, we will find a greater and greater proportion of cases where infections have already occurred and caused only mild effects. In fact, as time goes on, this will become generally truer too, because most infections tend to decrease in virulence as an epidemic progresses. One pretty clear indicator is death. If a new infection is causing many extra people to die (as opposed to an infection present in people who would have died anyway) then it will cause an increase in the overall death rate. But we have yet to see any statistical evidence for excess deaths, in any part of the world. Covid-19 can clearly cause serious respiratory tract compromise in some patients, especially those with chest issues, and in smokers. The elderly are probably more at risk, as they are for infections of any kind. The average age of those dying in Italy is 78.5 years, with almost nine in ten fatalities among the over-70s. The life expectancy in Italy — that is, the number of years you can expect to live to from birth, all things being equal — is 82.5 years. But all things are not equal when a new seasonal virus goes around. It certainly seems reasonable, now, that a degree of social distancing should be maintained for a while, especially for the elderly and the immune-suppressed. But when drastic measures are introduced, they should be based on clear evidence. In the case of Covid-19, the evidence is not clear. The UK’s lockdown has been informed by modelling of what might happen. More needs to be known about these models. Do they correct for age, pre-existing conditions, changing virulence, the effects of death certification and other factors? Tweak any of these assumptions and the outcome (and predicted death toll) can change radically. Much of the response to Covid-19 seems explained by the fact that we are watching this virus in a way that no virus has been watched before. The scenes from the Italian hospitals have been shocking, and make for grim television. But television is not science. Clearly, the various lockdowns will slow the spread of Covid-19 so there will be fewer cases. When we relax the measures, there will be more cases again. But this need not be a reason to keep the lockdown: the spread of cases is only something to fear if we are dealing with an unusually lethal virus. That’s why the way we record data will be hugely important. Unless we tighten criteria for recording death due only to the virus (as opposed to it being present in those who died from other conditions), the official figures may show a lot more deaths apparently caused by the virus than is actually the case. What then? How do we measure the health consequences of taking people’s lives, jobs, leisure and purpose away from them to protect them from an anticipated threat? Which causes least harm? The moral debate is not lives vs money. It is lives vs lives. It will take months, perhaps years, if ever, before we can assess the wider implications of what we are doing. The damage to children’s education, the excess suicides, the increase in mental health problems, the taking away of resources from other health problems that we were dealing with effectively. Those who need medical help now but won’t seek it, or might not be offered it. And what about the effects on food production and global commerce, that will have unquantifiable consequences for people of all ages, perhaps especially in developing economies? Governments everywhere say they are responding to the science. The policies in the UK are not the government’s fault. They are trying to act responsibly based on the scientific advice given. But governments must remember that rushed science is almost always bad science. We have decided on policies of extraordinary magnitude without concrete evidence of excess harm already occurring, and without proper scrutiny of the science used to justify them. In the next few days and weeks, we must continue to look critically and dispassionately at the Covid-19 evidence as it comes in. Above all else, we must keep an open mind — and look for what is, not for what we fear might be. John Lee is a recently retired professor of pathology and a former NHS consultant pathologist.

    Try looking at graphs of JUST Deaths in recent past years, at this time of year. I doubt the shape will look much different. If you’re aware that the data is dirty, then it seems pointless that you should persist in trying extract anything rational. The Emeritus Professor of the Johannes-Gutenberg-University in Mainz and longtime Head of the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene has written to Angela Merkel about such dirty data. I was pretty interested in the following which helps explain/rationalise the shocking, scary numbers emerging from Italy. ”One of these factors is the increased air pollution in the north of Italy. According to WHO estimates, this situation, even without the virus, led to over 8,000 additional deaths per year in 2006 in the 13 largest cities in Italy alone. [7] The situation has not changed significantly since then. 8] Finally, it has also been shown that air pollution greatly increases the risk of viral lung diseases in very young and elderly people. [9]”
