    He threatened to put me in hospital in a previous post and then denied it.
     
    The thing is, he knows he did it and I know he did it. Any denials are irrelevant.
     
    He thinks he’s a hard man and threatens folk online. He’s a sad pathetic loser. And a cowardly liar.

    The areas that I've highlighted are hugely salient points.
    This lockdown is unprecedented, and, as such, there will have been no studies that can predict its effects on, say for example, cardiovascular health.
    The potential for a significant increase in deaths due to cardiovascular health deterioration as a result of someone working from home sitting on their arse for three months, who is unable to be active at work or attend a gym regularly, is clear and present.
    Of course people can go for a walk, as I try to do every day. That's not the same as being on your feet all day or attending a gym regularly. Others will have their exercise regime restricted by child care etc.
    Six months down the line if someone dies of cardiovascular disease, where the lockdown has been a contributing factor, then would it even be possible to ascertain whether the lockdown was a contributing factor?
    Similarly, the lockdown may be enough to cause further deterioration to the health of someone with specific mental health issues. Worst case scenario being an increase in suicides.
    Deaths from cardiovascular disease and suicides largely go unreported, and are often accepted as run of the mill, possibly due to pre-conceived, stereotypical views on the type of individual assumed to be most likely to succumb to these illnesses. There's also the possibility that they will increase gradually, so the general public probably wouldn't be aware that anything different was happening.
    For these reasons, I doubt we'll ever really be able to measure reliably the impact of the lockdown on overall health.
    As much as I agree with the principles behind the lockdown, I really, really hope that we haven't overreacted, based on inaccurate recording of data, and that we haven't created a ticking time bomb in the future.
    It's certainly food for thought.

    I found this report on the BBC to be a little alarming, to be honest:
     
    Biblical eschatology does predict a time where we will all receive the 'mark of the beast' in order to buy and sell. My belief is it's likely to take the form of a microchip (not the McCain's variety @shull ), which will be implanted. It also indicates there will be very few believers during that time, and that people will be sinful (ubiquitous profanity, blasphemy and vulgarity?) and materialistic. Then of course there are wars, pestilence and famine. Fun times!!!

    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.

    He forecast 600-700 for tomorrow in a reply to one of my posts.

    Didn’t realise he was just posting random numbers.

    Makes sense

    Oaky was forecasting 600-700 by tomorrow, I was forecasting in excess of 500.
     
    His forecast may well be bang on.
     
    As you mentioned though, it’s meaningless.
     
    60,000 people with the common cold die each year, which of course is meaningless.
     
    Strangely, TPAFTWAT appeared to think that people dying with the cold wasn’t meaningless?
     
    Shows lack of intelligence.
     
    The real figures to watch are excess mortality
     
    It’s very early days but excess mortality in England & Wales this year is currently negative.
     
    In other words, less people have died than usually do.
     
    Need to see how this rises.
