If Covid motivates young obese people to get healthy as their mates are all off living life, that might not be the worst thing.

For people with chronic issues like asthma, that's life unfortunately.

Huh?

That's life unfortunately.

We know who the key at risk people are.

It's the elderly, it's the obese and it's those who are immuno compromised. That's just reality.

Sam McConkey wants a 7 year plan for this. Do you think everyone should stay under their beds until then? Is it mean that some people suffer more than others?

So we're at 1% hospital capacity. A level of increase significantly below that of seasonal influenza. And you think it's right to throw tens of thousand of people out of jobs when the public health people don't do their own jobs properly. Until the end of 2021.

Good man.

NPHET has recommended to Government that a maximum of six people from a single household should be allowed visit another home nationwide.

This rule currently applies in Dublin and Donegal, which are on Level 3 restrictions, but up until now six people from three households could visit another home in other counties, which are on Level 2.

NPHET has also recommended that no counties are to see a change in their restrictions level this week, meaning no other counties will be elevated to Level 3.

Not anymore. The original teenagers have grown up.

So people in college or just out of college without real jobs.

Or are we just exposing existing staff to more risk.
Good question, the HSE claim they'll be overran, but didn't bother to hire the vast majority of the healthcare heroes they called to come home.

Be On Call For Ireland: Only 209 workers given role in health service while 1,600 remain in a 'pool'


OF THE 73,000 people who applied for the government’s Be On Call For Ireland campaign to recruit healthcare workers, only 209 of them have been placed into a role in the health service.

Figures from the HSE show that 2,773 people passed an interview and indicated they were available for work since the initiative was launched in March.

Of these, 1,639 people remain available within the “pool” to take up a role in the health service, and a further 720 are “job-ready” after passing the clearance procedure.

Separately, a further 1,975 were recruited across four of the seven hospital groups in Ireland to assist in combating Covid-19.
That is pathetic.

Here lads you have to admire some lads moxy. I am down at my young ones athletics training, she has her mother's flat feet so not sure why but anyway...
The under 18's are training and there are 4 young ones and 4 lads. The 4 young ones are tall and athletic as you would expect. 3 of the lads are the same. However one of the lads has the quite large pot belly. Much like an older gentleman's much loved and tended beer version. He jogs behind all the girls arses week in week out always about 10 yards behind. It is old fashioned perving you would think is gone but here it is.

At risk of being maudlin, where are the deaths occurring? We are people being admitted to ICU and being discharged so are they dying before they hit ICU or not even making it to hospital?

1 ICU death in the last week.

This can come on very quickly and depending on the age/underlying condition, I'm guessing most deaths don't make it to ICU or there's no point because it'd be pointless. About 20% of our ICU admissions have died, I believe. So 'only' 90 of our total death toll.

Ok so we can possibly assume they're dying in regular beds or even in nursing homes/at home?
Which then begs the question - despite all the measures in place, it's still nigh on impossible to shield the older cohorts of society... the ones we're allegedly protecting by imposing all the restrictions.

Can't blame them. They have a huge portfolio and quite a few fit out & construction projects underway. They could very well be feeling the pinch from the banks at the moment with a lot of money going out and not a lot coming in.
