Sounds like they are thinking smartly and trying to do the right thing here.

But we know who is affected by this virus and it's not the majority of the populations. If you are in thoses groups, then take care, if not, time to party on.

We don't know who is affected, we know that certain age groups are more than affected than others but that doesn't mean a 20 year is bullet-proof and a 60 year is defintely going to die. Does it mean that I can't hug my parents anymore ? I don't know if I am a carrier although I suspect I've had it...oh, on that note does that mean I won't get it again, does it mean that I won't pass it on to anyone else ? People from BAME are more likely to die from the virus, should they be on permanent furlough ?

 

Theres too many variables.

 

Hopefully we'll see a return to some sort of normaility over the next few weeks but lets not be selfish here and think about others. There's already evidence that people are ignoring social distancing, you only have to look at the demonstration in London yesterday for Black Lives Matter.

This Corona madness will not be over until peoples T.V tells them its over...The T.V defines what reality is.....


I was watching the daily UK press briefing and the politician said something like “nobody in the country expects that we will go back to how we were before”.  <deleted>

With or without a method, they will remove the 14-day quarantine for Chinese travelers or I will eat my hat. 

Why would they?

What is that obsession with China on TV ?

We have a very good idea now statistically who is at risk. Anyone under 65 who is in good health is basically risk free. And overall the virus has an IFR of a bad flu season.

No, they are not risk free. They are less likely to die from it.

it was calculated the numbers were less than the risk of drowning. ie absolutely minimal. We have risk all the time in our lives. In the UK every year, almost 6,000 people die in home accidents

Who knows but do you want to find out ?

We only have history to go on and the HK and Spanish Flu both had devasting "second" waves

 

OK, so, media hype - unless you happen to be over 80 and have "pre-conditions" like diabetes and are obese or have had previous flu vaccinations? (as they lower your tolerance!)

YOu can draw your own conclusions from evidence available.

Personally I am going to follow the advise of people are are much more knowledgable than myself (and even TV posters) - scientists. They could be wrong of course but why risk it.

 

This lockdown is a pain in the butt, I have a wife and children in Thailand who I am crying out to see but I have to believe that our Government is doing what they are doing for the best interests of us all. Incidentally I am a key worker and getting no help from the government nor can I work from home. I'm also over 45 where the chances of me dying from this increase.

Yes they are hard at work right now trying to think up a explanation why the Chinese will not need quarantine but the farangs absolutely will need quarantine......

Worst case scenario, the Chinese are allowed in on an air bridge and no one else. Call it a precondition of their citizens travelling there and of course the CCP take a bigger hand in Thailand.

End of conversation - I think the "governments are following an agenda, the last thing they care about is our "best interests" 😆 IMO

Good luck....

Yes, they of course love paying billions for people to sit home doing nothing, putting people out of jobs, wrecking the economy...

Now it's ended 🙂

It's borrowed money over an infinite amount of years to pay back.

If they wanted to stop the protests they could, but they didn't, so social distancing doesn't matter to that age group as we already know.
