3 days on the trot the number of deaths drops, the forum ghoul will be looking to spin that into the "worse case scenario".

Tuesday's figure is often the highest in the week, prob'ly down to the stattos getting back to work after a weekend on the "sauce"...

Your inability to take this sorta detail into account after 7 months remains impressive...

*****************

The rolling 7 day average for cases recorded is still increasing, with said increase only starting to tail off this week. Sadly the number of deaths for November is already carved into stone. 

While it's been enjoyable watching y'all pile onto Baz I feel he's closer to the mark than you care to admit.

We’ve had our differences but I imagine we’ll agree posters like FS & Oaks will already have ready made excuses if the death rates continue to climb as projected to the end of the year.

Big deal. 

Let's see how close he is come the end if the year, end if February and the end of March as he's dribbling over the numbers for all if the above. 

How close is he on what, exactly? 

Let's see you nail your colours to the mast. 

I'm not, or have ever, made the point the numbers are increasing, I just prefer to point out any drops.

If you'd been paying attention I was using the 7 day average for months way back after the daily numbers served their purpose. 

Look forget it, everybody is entitled to an opinion, I'm quite comfortable with my views on this.

There's been plenty things I never seen coming, it's a fecking mess, a year out of our lives.

He might be, but it's only his opinion, not a "fact". We can all have different opinions, and argue over them, but when someone claims their opinion is absolute fact because ... well ... just because, then it's time to get out of the discussion. No doubt, if his opinion is later proven to be correct, he will claim that it proves his opinion was a fact after all. He'll be wrong, but he'll do it.

What’s your estimate of deaths at the start of January?

Aye, nobody, except him, has been gleefully quoting figures who will die.

A ghouls right enough, hiding behind his false concern for "people". 

If that post is aimed at me, feck sake, I've never said how many will die, only laugh at the clowns who hide behind stupid scientist and choose to believe these wild claims.

What a cuntish thing to say.

You are quite literally pinning a number of potential human lives lost as a stake for winning a frivolous argument on a fitba forum.

Seriously, have f**king look at yourself.

The BBC reverting back to their early scaremongering.

Just quoted a figure of more than 4,000 deaths a DAY is possible. 

That's got to be the best yet. 

My calculator just gave up when I punched that number in. 

As a comparison, India, population 1,384,493,422, have had just over 1,200 daily deaths at their peak.

The USA, population 1,384,493,422, have hit UNDER 3,000 at their worst.

Brazil, population 213,061,062, have had just over 1,500 

I've picked the 3 countries who are performing badly, as we have TBH. 

Now, I'm not a scientist but I think the UK are unlikely to get MORE THAN 4,000 a day.

Just had a message from an ex workmate, been with the company for 15 years.

Being made redundant after being on furlough, almost constantly, from March.

He's shattered, never known another company and there's not much out there.

The oil & gas industry, and it's not on it's own, has been hammered.

This is it FS, they (the companies) are absolutely shi**ing themselves and panic cutting resources at will (most of the time with no logic).

I recently bailed out of a large north east Oil and Gas mob that have interests down in the central belt as I could sense that they were panicking.

Unfortunately there will be more to come

Aye mate, the same company my mate worked for binned me early August, why.................they had to start contributing a paltry amount towards furlough. 

I got lucky, found another job out of O&G, but it's going to be a disaster, probably the worst ever,  for thousands of people and I've been involved in O& G for just over 30 years.

Yeah I still have a lot of mates up in the north east and I fully agree this is the worst, the next 3 to 6 months is going to be absolutely brutal.

Glad to hear you got fixed up.

Never mind a death estimate, how long before the SG buckle if as seems to be the case now the WM clowns announce a new national lockdown on Monday ? Given that would leave us out on a limb compared to the other home nations there would be massive pressure to follow suit especially with polls amazingly seeming to show 65%+ support for it (according to BBC breakfast this morning before anyone questions it).

When some clowns start throwing around a figure of 4,000 deaths a day it's hardly surprising many people would support another "lockdown".

Ffs talk about some selective reading going on here. 

I have talked for months about my concerns with not taking enough measures and the bleak picture facing the U.K. & beyond. FS has responded at near every point to my concern, downplaying this virus & accusing me of not being able to ‘think’ regarding what the figures & experts are saying. Don’t lower me to his ridiculously low standards in wanting to win a ‘bet’ on human life, I have simply been given my view. 
 

I will take no pleasure at all if my prediction comes true. It is seeming more and more likely as very high death levels in the coming months, now to the point there is probably going to be a second lockdown in England but I have shown no indication at all I’ll be ‘gleeful’ about this. 
 

People should maybe try looking a wee bit deeper into a debate than knee jerk reactions to single posts.

There was a sizeable queue at Morrison's Lone end yesterday around 3,30. First I've had to stand in, in months. Only had to wait ten minutes though.

Not sure if it was selfish fools panic buying things like bog roll, or a last minute rush for Hallow'een stuff.
