You lads are really not coping well with the realization that NPHET aren't listening to your expert opinions and poring over your every pronouncement on here, are you?
More gibberish as you can’t debate. I look forward to your future “economic” musings.
Yeah Iarmhi ..... I'm the one being arrogant here
I've already been on the record stating I don't think NPHET are infallible ...... but I've zero tolerance for 20-something trainee lawyers telling the rest of us that the NATIONAL. PUBLIC. HEALTH. EMERGENCY. TEAM are a shower of clowns and spoofers.
There's lots of nuance to this for sure, but the one black and white issue is that neither me nor Brock habe the medical credentials to question the experts on this .... yet one of us is turning it into a crusade it seems
Our NPHET Overlords don't have the expertise to discuss what they are doing ... based on what they have already tweeted and are trying to walk back.
It's a technical topic and the final outcome will never change, regardless of the smokescreen that is put out to the public. They are f**ked regardless of what they attempt to justify now.
Just don't pretend that you didn't know and no-one tried to tell you, afterwards ..
Remember Wuhan is back in the pool and in the nightclub ... and they were hit a few months before us ... it could be you if you break out of your Stockholm Syndrome ...
The reason China is back open is because they put in place the kind of autocratic, heavily policed, stringent restrictions, that people like you would be screaming blue bloody murder about, if they were tried here.
The fecking irony
Really ? Is that what happened in Shanghai, in Beijing ? I don't think so. They managed to shield nearly a billion people from the asymptomatic super spreader COVID-19 zombies - its worthy of a Nobel prize for Medicine what they have achieved if that is the case.
You ignore the reality that they had a lot of pre-existing cross-immunity in their population (immunity due to prior exposure to similar coronaviruses) and that we also have some and are building more population immunity as the virus transmission slowly spreads further.
Vietnam has had barely an issue ... why ? How come they they have been very mildly impacted while other geographies have seen their old folks wiped ? No martial law was used there.
We have been here before. SARS-CoV-1 arrived in 2002 and spread around Asia until 2004. There has not been a single case of SARS-CoV-1 reported globally since 2004. Hopefully SARS-CoV-2 will burn out similarly, although that is not guaranteed. But burn-out is epidemiologically typical if you do not get significant mutation of the virus.
Covid=19's impact is a fraction of what it was in the Spring - remember we had very little testing capacity then but were detected similar numbers of virus RNA cases by PCR, Now we are detecting lots of RNA residues due to use of super-high amplification cycles above 40 for folks who have another respiratory illness but were exposed to Covid in the past few months. As we continue to test every cough and fever for PCR, we will see NPHET terrified out of their wits by a hugh number of false and last positive testing artefacts.
Covid19 spread currently will be real but much smaller that PCR testing indicates.And if these use cases are inflated, a similar risk of misclassification of the hospitalisations and ICU cases also holds. There are more precise ways of diagnosing Covid 19 by scanning their lungs for the typical impacts of the Covid 19, etc.
Hopefully folks will realise we can live with this serious respiratory condition and get back in the pool and nightclub like Wuhan has.... soon.
