"Works"?

It certainly stops cross-border transmission. Obviously it won't stop local transmission. Not sure what you are asking.
Whether it makes a difference to the spread of the virus. It's an interesting question. It's like baffles in cylinders. It stops large scale movements but the amount of energy in the system is the same. Not a question to be easily answered on a forum where treadmills cause chaos.

Or they are yet to come up with anything.

I know they've f**ked up thus far, but give them chance. They appear to be sorting things.

The news cycle should come secondary to preventative measures where for each 24 hours that pass, the numbers look more and more bleak.

Totally agree. The reason why we're arguing is because of a small number of people refusing to coutenance the Govt making any mistakes or being forced to abandon previous plans. I'm not trying to slaughter the govt here but we've had people be pretty snide about everyone else "knowing better than the UK's experts" and, well...

zzzz - in addition to Raggs' post, they're never going to say they should have done more earlier. It's not that kind of analysis. The WHO and all those pesky foreign scientists said it though. Thing is, we had loads of data on the virus - from the Asian countries, particularly from China who opened up all their data for other countries. We didn't really need to try and go it alone.
As someone who has no dog in this fight there has been a noticeable flurry of Irish posters saying over and over how stupid and terrible the UK strategy has been so as to have some sort of gotcha moment when/ if a ton of people die.
We've a land border with them. It directly impacts us and compromises our own efforts.
They are getting back on track at the moment ... but if they go wrong, we are seriously impacted.

I realise it’s boring for the Observers. But tough, it’s not tiddlywinks, you know ... ;)

No mate, you've been dominating this thread yelling at everyone that the UK's approach was exactly the same as everyone else's, yelling at anyone who disagreed, and repeatedly got involved whenever any criticism was aimed at the govt for their approach and their messaging. Even today, long after everyone else understood what had happened and that the UK was having to dramatically alter course, you kept banging on the same old tired and debunked lines.

You have more posts than anyone else in this thread and you need to think more before posting. You post so much stuff that is just nowhere near true.

He was asked what changed in the modelling with specific regard to the ICL document. He said it wasn't so much that the modelling changed, but that we were further up the curve now.

More or less chutzpah than starting with a total misrepresentation and using that to set a dishonest narrative?

Latest Irish figures in. 69 new cases (increase of 30.9%, marginally down on last few days)

The new cases number can be variable due to levels of testing, who you test, etc.

But the Deaths are horrible, possible to under-report, but really the number to look at.

Very, very sad.

And I see folks trying to interpret these numbers day by day ... you need at least 3-5 days to see the trend on these numbers given the amount of noise in the data. And if you asked a statistician, they would ask for 30 days + data at least ... :lol:

There must be more lessons to learn from the catastrophy in Italy. If you look at the number of cases in Germany and how few fatalities there have been, then comparing the two case-studies of Italy and Germany should be informative.

Italy figures for today (TBC, got it from a French news site).

31,506 confirmed cases (+12.6%)
2,503 death (+16%)
2,941 cured
2,060 in ICU (+11.3%)

It's the slowest growth rate for known cases since the start of the epidemic in that country, therefore very encouraging. First signs that containment in the cities that have adopted it first are starting to pay off.

The trend should accelerate and the curve flatten in the coming days, and then the ratio of daily death toll should start decreasing too.

Hang in there lads

This has to be due to the fact that Germany, a little like SK, is testing massively more people than Italy or France or Spain. In fact the virus is probably much less widespread in Germany than South-Western Europe. We're looking at set of stats that are potentially very different.

I have been told of cases in Germany where people had symptoms and were told to be confined at home, only to be woken in the middle of the night by a team wearing masks and testing them.

In France the only people tested at this stage of the pandemic are those who go to hospital because the symptoms are becoming severe.

The mitigation strategy "focuses on slowing but not necessarily stopping epidemic spread — reducing peak healthcare demand while protecting those most at risk of severe disease from infection", the report said, reflecting the UK strategy that was outlined last week by Boris Johnson and the chief scientific adviser Patrick Vallance.

But the approach was found to be unworkable. "Our most significant conclusion is that mitigation is unlikely to be feasible without emergency surge capacity limits of the UK and US healthcare systems being exceeded many times over," perhaps by as much as eight times, the report said.

In this scenario, the Imperial College team predicted as many as 250,000 deaths in Britain.

"In the UK, this conclusion has only been reached in the last few days," the report explained, due to new data on likely intensive care unit demand based on the experience of Italy and Britain so far.

"We were expecting herd immunity to build. We now realise it’s not possible to cope with that," professor Azra Ghani, chair of infectious diseases epidemiology at Imperial, told journalists at a briefing on Monday night.
Just me, Rodney, the Irish, the study, and the guy announcing the study, and everyone who read the study, and the Government who changed course based on the study, and the scientists and related people discussing the change in course

Last Thursdays plan is still in place, extra steps to flatten the curve were introduced then as coming down the line. You’re misrepresenting what’s been said and done to back your earlier hysteria and current lies.
