Lockdown to kill hundreds of thousands of children this year according to the UN

"Could" not "to", another false reference from you. The article clearly says unless we "act now" 

We need to make sure this doesn't happen, it doesn't mean the only option is opening up countries and letting people die from the virus.

"The real truth is that you are supporting the right wing fascist police state imposed by a known racist. And if you need me to help you any further with how data modelling works, like you’ve asked me for in the past, don’t hesitate to ask."

FFS make up your mind what your political stance is. Beep beep beep.

Andy, as you know I'm one of those "lefties" though not working from home on full pay as I went self employed in January and my work just about stopped stone dead when lockdown started. FWIW, I think the current policy is confused and has not fully understood the impact of current measures, particularly on vulnerable children or those living in poverty, or those with mental health problems. 

Current public health policies should be based on reducing risk but not being risk averse. There are certain situations, schools, sports etc, where social distancing is impossible. There should be an acknowledgement of this, and a move to open as much of the country as possible up, while improving hygiene and testing, and considering how family contact with older relatives can be facilitated as safely as possible. You will never eliminate risk, but you can reduce it, and that should be the aim. We need to avoid a situation where public health measures lead to unseen and forgotten about consequences for those with no voice.

No, I'm not an expert but I listen to experts.
I also work with folk who I would regard as experts in their field.

As opposed to you who appears to just post tin foil hat videos.

what is a 'tin foil hat video' please define?

 

What makes you only consult 'experts' , is at a shortfall in your personal IQ?

What work are you relying on that says shutting down an economy and keeping everyone in doors for weeks stops the spread of this disease ? And how can somone be an 'expert' if indeed it is an precedented incidence ?

Many countries have adopted different responses to this disease , even ones that neighbour each other like the ones mentioned above but it seems that we have decided to copy  China , one of the most repressive regimes in modern history , a regime with very unreliable stats to boot

I don't know if this came from the wet market, the bat eating, the virus lab worker or through the Chinese or US funding of the Wuhan lab to create it.

Right now I don't care. We need to get through this current situation hope folk who have had it have immunity and hope we can deal with any second wave prior to a vaccine.

It should be remembered, and I'm in this bracket at times, that Americans are not all stupid or Trump supporters.

That may well be true but nevertheless one really does have to wonder about a CUNTRY that would vote someone of his Kaliber into a position of power, there might be some Americans with a degree of common sense..................but they are hiding pretty well

Everywhere has nutters, America just has more...............................democracy eh? 

Police in Cheshire have been called to a single house 30 times over coronavirus lockdown rules being broken, it has emerged.

Officers have repeatedly had to visit the property in Widnes because of groups of people gathering there for day-long parties.

Now, after multiple fines apparently failed to deter visitors, Cheshire Police have slapped the home with a closure order — a legal device normally used to shut down troubled pubs and clubs.

It means the property’s tenant will be committing a crime, and face six months prison time, should anyone else be found at the house in the next three months.

IMO the recent talk of easing restrictions has been a mistake.

The daily numbers suggest we are quite a long way from any changes to the current instructions.

The public being the public grab any slight change and already there are signs people are taking the "talks" as a sign they can start breaking the guidelines. 

With retail outlets already being given the green light, B&Q for one, to reopen this is taken as a sign the public can do what they like.

There should have been no public talk from all government spokespeople about exit strategies IMO. 

The numbers do not support any relaxation, either workplaces or schools, for quite a while.

Hardware shops like B&Q were never required to close as it sells item that are essential for repairs.

I'm aware of that, I used their "click and collect" scheme a few weeks ago.

I would argue they are not essential and click and collect was ample, but the goalposts have moved as they are now open for day to day business.

Yes they are using the same distancing rules that supermarkets are using but, IMO, they are not in the same "essential" group.

No, far from ample.

dysfunctional from my knowledge.
 

Told to come and “collect” people were queuing with their cars for 2 hours+ for the collection to be delivered to their cars in the car park.
