Re: Coronavirus

Yes Mark I think it is too soon to come to a conclusion in any country. Just remember not all Swedish "experts" agree.

Re: Coronavirus

Saw this in the news today, criticises Worldometer the oft quoted virus stats site. Now (some) like the FT are waking up. Newsnight made a lot out of an incredible statistic: that the UK had more deaths yesterday than the entire EU. The problem is the numbers are nonsense. The FT has exposed reporti...

Re: Coronavirus

At least Sweden has done whatever it did for the right reasons. One of the reasons that The World Health Organisation banned the use of hydroxychloroquine was probably because Donald Trump said he was using it. It has been more concerned with vilifying the highly qualified scientists who were advoc...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes Mark same here, it is genuine I now believe. Is it any wonder why people raise eyebrows though about the whole thing? better to stay a few metres apart for a few more months than risk being in a box 6 foot under for ever. Agree about distancing, just incase. Would do the same if someone had a h...

Re: Coronavirus

Some experts claim that the overuse of ventilators especially on most patients with serious existing conditions led to a high death count in the beginning. Talking with the paramedics who took OH to hospital March 13 (not corona related) I asked them if they were busy due to the virus. They were not...

Re: Coronavirus

I think there should have been a short, strict two week lock down at the beginning. A new version of the virus is spreading fast and will be harder to cure...Coronaphobia.

Re: Coronavirus

If anything positive has come out of this it is the change in my Grandson. He moved in with us a week or so before the lock down (parents abroad) fed up of sitting in lectures surrounded by Chinese in masks. From lounging in bed until midday he is now up around 8.30. We set up a share account when s...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes, lockdown is over, about time. As a rule of thumb everything is worse in the YUK especially if looking for an excuse not to see “beloved” relatives...keep safe. We are all going to hell on a handcart. Any cure for UK derangement syndrome :lol:

Re: Coronavirus

Strange how the lockdown suddenly ends when the tourist season is warming up. (all countries) Places around where I lived could not carry on without tourists. Semi residential ones off season and mainly Madrilenos from July. Locals mostly have their carrier and cool bags on the beach. Lockdown was d...

Re: Made in China

Getting back to cheap Chinese imports and the incorrect labelling. I was organising my clothes and some aside for cleaning. A coat I bought from Hobbs says on label finest Italian cloth. Small label on cleaning instructions says Made in Portugal.

Re: Made in China

The Hotel unions have had a few strikes on the CDSWe were in a hotel in the 80's and the staff were carrying on working. When the bullies (flying pickets) called the staff would hide. Impossible to organise small workforces into unions, same in UK. Spanish lad is correct although I thought the lack ...

Re: Coronavirus

Could be thousands needlessly quarantined with the app. Imagine message telling you your supermarket cashier was infected. Lockdown for two weeks and a couple of days later you were in contact at the Farmacia...another 14 days.

Re: Coronavirus

Yes political in most countries now. I think the lockdowns should stop because no one is stopping those who want to isolate do so. Statistically for those under 60 deaths are very low, lots of scaremongering and on TV said today that analysing deaths in 4 European countries (including UK) non virus ...

Underpaying by half hour per day is not legal but hardly slave labour compared to fruit pickers etc. There are many thousands working in glass houses in Andalucia for less than 3 euro an hour.

Re: Coronavirus

Thought we aren't supposed to get into UK stuff and the blitz comparison is totally irrelevant. A reduction of 2 thousand is not. Here is an article from today's mail which covers other countries counting methods. As I said, we shall never know. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-8355683/Is-...
