Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Says who stats? Duff Paddy and Stats from Planet Rugby? Says who what? David Nabarro yesterday was asked if there is a system out there that we should look to copy to stop the spread and he point blank said East Asia. Even our own government said it was what we were trying to emulate. So why didn't...

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

I think this is a massive powerplay by the health authorities to make the public health system very big with plenty of capacity to spare.

Surely hospitalisations is a more relevant metric? :uhoh: They seem to be related but 100 cases a day = about 20 hospitalisations a week under current proportions which is a ridiculously low target to set before reopening.
