How Many Lives Will CV-19 Save?

If the Sunday Sport were running a story about Prince Harry and Meghan spreading covid 19, I've no doubt some people on here would be treating it as gospel.

People bored out of their trees, sat on their arses, eating out of boredom and drinking every night because they don’t have to do much the following day.
You say it like its a bad thing!
 
I suppose there could also be some long term health effects from this self isolation.

Pretty much the same as the military.
How can people be bored in the age of the internet? It's got porn and everything.
 
Is that still there ?

On the Glen Road ?
Oh, yes. Those who occasionally appear near the A1 are from the South, thankfully, and are usually grassed up to the filth when they turn up, so bugger off fairly sharpish. Their rubbish dumping schemes are frequently evidenced in the laybys.
 
Watching local TV news this evening. I think all this hand washing, has cured the road potholes. As the telly never mentioned them, dispite having been a hot topic for months.
Fly tipping seems to be down, for the time being.

Take an Orange from the box.
Fly tipping set to rise as DIY and gardening rocket.

Our friends with the tipper Transits will be picking up for £150 a load to "take it to a registered site".
 
Think I've posted this before but we need to bear in mind that on average 1600 people die each day in the UK. That's 48,000 per month. How many of these would be part of the monthly toll anyway but whose cause of death has been listed as being due to Corona is naturally unknown but some of the deaths must be.

I don't doubt that the monthly toll over the next few months will be higher than average but how much higher is unknown. If we're lucky it won't be much. If we aren't lucky...

Edit:

And whilst I'm on, there was an article on the BBC news just now about misleading or inaccurate stories being spread by social media. Now very probably the people who post/forward these stories are, by and large, well meaning. However, the old saying from WW2 is extremely relevant at this point, namely:

CARELESS TALK COSTS LIVES

So DO NOT spread a story or piece of information you receive from a friend or see on social media.
In a further response, Spain has done these figures, or as far as they go.
They've come up with a mortality rate of almost 30% higher than normal over an 11 day period. Their National Epidemiology Centre has been publishing daily reports since last week.

The full story from El Mundo is below and you can use Google Chrome to put it into English.

MoMo Report

Of course, Spain has a far higher mortality rate at the moment.
 
Latest Spanish mortality rates from 17th to 31st March on MoMo now showing an increase of 39.8% over the same periods in previous years.
Broken down as:
Men - increase of 47.7%
Women - increase of 29%
Under 65 - increase of 8.4%
65-74 increase of 40%
Over 75 increase of 45.6%

The Madrid Region is showing an increase of an incredible 94.9% with men increasing by 118% and those over 75 with an increase of 109%.

1,000 deaths a day by Easter, This is believed to be the peak but still unknown.
The BMA are still concerned with the number escalating through this number.

They will be taking more of a chance with police checkpoints. But as they're pikeys no doubt they'll still be up their criminal activities. They should have their Transits confiscated.

When I was in the UK in February, I saw one on the road in Harrow with no plates, that's how brazen they are.
 
The pollution levels in many cities are much reduced. In London where Sadiq Khan was on about diesel fumes killing people prior to the Covid outbreak, the air is far cleaner-and obviously the streets much quieter, this must be saving lives.

In Bangkok, a city notorious for high levels of PM2.5, which is a killer are far reduced since that city has gone into a virtual lockdown over the weekend. The number of lives saved from both reduced pollution and road accidents could be in the order of over 100 each day.

Greta should be vary pleased, but you probably wouldn't know it looking at her miserable face.

….or returned to the previous owner.

...like the rozzers would even dream of that.

We had a theft just before the Great Big Zombie Virus Panic, high tech measuring kit from site.
1. Cctv of theft, with van VRN and reasonable face images.
2. Teacker on kit, to local traveller site.


Met police said "30£k? Here's a crime number, carry on".


Site bods want kit, because they're losing thousands a day unable to work.

They tool up and go to gypsy site. Met at gate "oh, yeah, we found that kit in tbe road just by here... been looking after it... £1500 storage fee?"

Lads decide that's the least worst option. Hand over cash. Gyppo taking it says "pleasure doing business with you, keep XXX (that security firm) on, we'll have it away again next week, cut you boys in on half of £5k?"

This is all on a sneaky go-pro. Good voice, clear face, kit and money change hands.


Police still not interested.

Fcuking astounding. Put it all on a CD and send it to the Chief Constable cc Home Secretary. Is there not a sh1t-stirring 'current affair' type TV programme in the UK to which it could be sent? Or uploaded to YouTube? Anarchy otherwise.

Is it worth it?

Not sure anyone involved can be bothered.

Site all locked down now, anyway, despite demonstrated ability to keep within transmission rules.

...on second thoughts, I'll see if l can organise that. Good idea.

Not really my rôle, it's one of our subbies, but i shall pass the suggestion over.

Beggars belief, doesn't it?
