Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Cases have been sitting around 1-1.2k a day for a while now, have we hit some plateau? If they hit a testing capacity plateau, then you will hit a positive result plateau. But in better news, they are trying to source an additional 10,000 results/day from a German testing lab ... it might be a bit ...

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

1,066 cases, 3 deaths. The NPHET Track and Trace debacle hangs over the number of cases. I also see the last 24 hours that positive % is down and positives overall is steady. The pattern holds with this yoke always tapering off rather than staying exponential. Of course, it could be down to missing...

This was known. That was why locking down like us is stoopid.

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

For what it's worth I think the notion you can stop outbreaks like the attached is pie in the sky. Of course a decent testing and tracing system reduces the chance but they will still happen. The government needed to control that narrative. They were inevitably going to see massive rises and dead g...

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Employ 600 people in a call centre - pay the business €800-900 per week per person. €27m to put in place those 600 people for a year.

So shops, public transport etc are told to reduce numbers and that's "regions have been effectively locked down".
