I'm going to take a break from the thread for a little while. But I'll answer questions tomorrow AM.
A lot of backlash (and now backtrack) on the Herd immunity approach of the UK.
Get some rest man. I’m in the UK. Not at all happy with the approach so far. It’s almost as if we’re waiting for it to really hit the fan before putting any significant measures in place.
I heard something about quarantining all the over 70 in UK, is it true? That would be a brilliant idea.
99% of the dead in Italy are > 70yo, in fact the average is 80.3, large majority with more than one preexisting condition (most common: hypertension, cardiopathies, diabetes), also most of them are in critical conditions in recovery units that are running out of space, which is the biggest problem at this time.
Plus in Italy you cant get the oldies to stay the fuck home, even in the evening you see a lot of bar full of granpas playing cards (this before the bars were closed down for the epidemic of course).
But even to this day, i see them out doing shopping in grocery stores or whatever, going out every fucking day.
