MERS Coronavirus warning

Kinnegar Army Barracks beside Palace Barracks is to be turned into a temporary morgue. Belfast can currently only hold 200 odd bodies at one time, I think.

One of the climate controlled warehouses has been rented by the Department of Justice.
Kinnegar? Where's that?

I only know of Moscow camp near palace.
 
I see that Sky News have given the oxygen of publicity to that rat Blair.

He should have no oxygen supply at all.
 
So we are going to get a letter from PMBJ telling us what we already now. Great use of resources. I also hope he hasn't licked the envelopes.
Sadly it is probably sensible
Given that half the country didn't take this seriously a week ago it is probably quite prudent for the government to keep reminding people what they need to do
 
I’m glad you’ve been posting actually, you’ve been a good leveller to some of our more panic stricken posters ref food and medicine logistics.
Thank you.

I am one of tens of thousands playing the same game.
One of the more interesting aspects of this (and quite heartening) is that every single driver working with me fully understands whats going on at the moment.

All of them know that as well as it being a worldwide pandemic that will probably kill somebody they know there is a commercial fight for survival that we aren't gauranteed to win.
We think we will, we're working bloody hard at it but companies like ours have just had 60-70% of our revenue wiped out.
On top of that, most of my remaining drivers are now employed delivering contingency feeding including a lot of NHS, school meals and Police.
The work they are doing now is different to a fortnight ago, its not just commercial anymore, it has become part of a national need.

They are all doing it under the heavy threat of job losses and a very uncertain future and a by no means certain level of income.

The world is a very different place from where it was a fortnight ago
Even my more obnoxious drivers have knuckled down and are getting on with it.
 
marvellous- guess who is A neg?
I wouldn't be too worried.

A and O make up something like 85% of the population, and split pretty much down the middle. Maybe they are seeing lots of A but I'd be surprised if they saw many AB or B. It doesn't mean that there's not a fair amount of Os too.

So don't be too concerned.

I'm O+ by the way ;)

Britain.

We're f*cking ace.

You can see why other countries want to hang out with us.

We’re f*king lucky we voted Brexit, and the Government had robust planning in place for what to do if we were cut off and needed to keep things running with shortages, and the supply chains had built up excess stock.

What's the c*nt saying? We should rejoin the eu to end coronavirus?
Hard to say because I wasn't really listening. Something about how the government should be dealing with testing I think, he'd know, he's an expert apparently.
 
Kinnegar? Where's that?

I think back in the day it was an ordnance Depot for vehicle repairs, stores etc set up to support Op Banner. I remember visiting the place in 1977 when my pl was tasked to provide a couple of vehicle escorts for the QM dept to pick up some stuff.

Lets put things in perspective -

RoI population - circa 5 million as at 17 Mar 6600 tests- 0.0012 of population tested.

Uk population - circa 70 million as at 18 Mar 64621 tests - 0.009 of population tested.

According to the nformation found here - Coronavirus Update (Live): 656,690 Cases and 30,397 Deaths from COVID-19 Virus Outbreak - Worldometer

UK has an intection rate of 252 and a death rate of 15 per million

RoI has an infection rate of 489 and a death rate of 7 per million.

This would indicate to me that your quarantine regime introduced well before the UK one is pap?
As you know well in your country, its always a game of potatoe /potatoe.

Next youll be saying Germany has this licked as they have a really low death rate. Nothing to do with the way they count the cause of death, no siree.
And we are significantly below the predicted rate of infection on 17 March now because we have flattened the curve with the more basic measures.

our infection rate is currently going up because
(a) we Widely broadened the testing criteria 2 weeks ago (to anyone with 1 symptom) and those results are now coming out
(b) community transmissions have increased because each case will on average give it to 2.5 others
(c) it will take 2 weeks for any measures to have any effect (so where the U.K. was telling people to self isolate for 1 week if they had symptoms here it is 2 weeks)

for the first 45 after the first confirmed case the U.K. was only testing those who had been hospitalised.

You seem to be studiously ignoring the fact that Ireland is FAR less urbanised than the UK.
