He didn't say 600,000 people die each year from flu, he said 6000,000 people die each year.

Point accepted albeit the figure somewhat misguiding on a contextual point as when we take the 600K figure we are looking at at a mortality rate of circa 3.7% through influenza. 

In terms of Covid19 and ultimate contamination levels mortality etc a guessing game.

I tend to look towards UK Government sources and their published supports.. Obviously it is down to the individual in terms of the credibility they attach. For me the best we have at the moment that is not to say that may change as matters move forward.

Edwina Currie was one example of how easily the UK government can cause mass hysteria and panic over wrong advice.  

Just saying . ;)

Give it a rest. No one person knows exactly what is happening. Least of all you. It would be brilliant if this was all a huge mistake. People who have died are obviously insignificant to you. Shut it.

Unfortunately, it will always be a guessing game. The only way to know the fatality rate of any infection is to test everyone for it and calculate the numbers based on the fatality rate of those who test positive. Something that will never happen. There will be many more people infected than is known, because they won't and can't realistically test everyone. I know of two people who were showing symptoms. One was not tested and will never know if they had this virus. The other was more poorly and was tested when at hospital. It turned out to be a bacterial infection and both are ok.

It was and still is my personal opinion that temporarily isolating those with serious underlying health issues and the frail elderly people in our country would be a better course of action. What is a minor infection to the bulk of the population can be serious for people in these categories.

I originally had the view that a delay to the season would be the best option and I still do. I can understand a partial shutdown (talking about society here, not football) in order to slow the transmission rate and give the health service a chance to try and cope in the short term. However, I don't believe a longer term or near full shutdown is the right course to take (again, just an opinion).

This virus is unlikely to disappear. Like cold viruses, there are people all around the world infected at any given time and it will come and go, usually more often in winter months. For most of us it is not serious, but for some it is, as it is for them with many other infections. They are the people we need to help. If the bulk of us get the virus and quickly recover whilst the vulnerable are self isolating, then it reduces the chances of them getting infected and the experts have more time to try and develop antiviral treatments.

I think what is different with this virus is that it is believed to have spread from animals to humans, which is not that common and it spreads rapidly, which is even more uncommon in this scenario.

Anyway, best wishes to all. You know it is serious when we are discussing things like this on a football forum.

You made a complete arse of yourself. Better to leave it at that.

 

For having a different opinion than you ?   Ok .  I will leave it at that,  without  any ridicule of course.

If your opinion was using a ridiculous analogy (Edwina Currie) it’s no surprise you’re sorry. I’m sorry I had to read it.

That was in reply to someone who suggested following advice from the government .   An analogy to suggest that quite often government advice can be wrong.

Every Piece of Government advice should be taken on its own merits. No advice from the past especially on a completely different subject is irrelevant. I’m actually astounded your still digging the ever deeper hole. For your sake I’m saying no more on this matter.
