I see Phil Nolan is getting battered on Twitter for going after Lidl...
He didn't just have a cut off them, he was properly bitchy. Not a good or measured look for someone in his position. Weird how much they seem to be against antigen tests.

I'd love to know if Lidl gets them for less than the HSE pays for tests. :lol:

There was criticism of the accuracy of the Lidl antigens.

Such a strange tweet from Nolan. The dogs in the street know that the rapid antigen tests aren’t as accurate as the RT-PCR tests but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t of some value. They’ve been studied in depth there’s even a Cochrane review. Calling them snake oil is frankly ridiculous, he either doesn’t know what snake oil/quackery is, or else he’s just lashing out because the country is moving further and further away from taking NPHET seriously.

Average monthly wage Bulgaria = € 582.

You don't want to be competing at those levels.

Someone on twitter rightfully pointed out that the manufacturers of the test and Lidl could sue the pants off him for that tweet. It really was outrageous. A guy whose model is unpublished and has been consistently wrong for a year now is having a go at a helpful aid in the fight against covid that is being used successful in many other European counties. Just bizarre, these guys don’t like it when people start challenging them do they.

As Luke O'Neill says, cases may rise but hospitalisations shouldn't and NPHET won't get anywhere if the hospital situation doesn't follow the previous pattern in relation to cases.

A half completed model was put up. I believe that’s where their ludicrous 9,500 cases came from and apparently the pHDs responsible were none too happy that their work ended up online.

I believe he got the position because he is seen as the university administrator with closest knowledge to what is going on around the colleges and also had a medical background. The work isn’t really performed by him.

For him I’m sure he saw it as an act of national service but also something to put on the CV as I’m sure like Hugh Brady he had his eye on a position in the U.K. after this. His term with Maynooth finished this year and I doubt he’ll wait around for the UCD job.

The sooner nolan, glynn, holohan are wheeled off the better. These so called DR's, professors, scientists that the media are constantly bringing out are a disgrace.
My missus is a neuroscientist and her and her colleauges are ashamed but not suprised with the likes of ryan getting all this airtime. Academia is a strange place. A bunch of nerds who spent so long in education and think they are better than everyone else. Obviously that doenst apply to all, but probably to the ones who were bullied in school!

Anyway, had a nice bit of grub in doolin yesterday. Good crowd around. All happy and jolly. Not long now before everything is back to normal. Good times.
I wonder has this new director of the dept of health had a word with nphet. Their wording seems alot more positive lately.

I’m not sure if he ever worked as a doctor - maybe a few years. He did science and then went back to do medicine and then went into research. He’s an academic doctor as such - like a lot of the guys doing all the talking during this pandemic

It’s funny how J&J is considered fully vaccinated after one dose - it’s only because that’s how they structured their trial. They could have given a booster dose to increase efficacy but decided against it. AZ should be considered protected 4 weeks after the first dose

I don’t get the timelines. Are they going to delay that age bracket getting vaccinated?

They’re on course to start getting vaxxed in early June. There shouldn’t be many J&J doses left by then end the deliveries are apparently weighted forward the end of June.

Have my parents and the wife booked in next week to get the first jab, it's actually more of a relief than I thought it would be. Once the wife is done we can finally start visiting family and friends again (vacc'd people can visit unvacc'd indoors again from today right?).
