I didn't twist your point. Challenging flawed advice is not selfish.
Had Sweden not made the same mistake as other countries in discharging hospital patients into care homes (the UK was not alone here) it might have been well down the list.With Sweden, the infection and death rates were higher than their near neighbours but recovered and is pretty much functioning normally...
Agreed that was very big mistake and scandalous and I can't really understand what they were thinking other than freeing up beds to make it look like they were coping, but it only exacerbated the situation and increased the death toll and spread of virus via care staff not having adequate PPE, still doesn't matter what the flavour of the government is, they are driven by self interest, so appearing to meet kpi's targets is far important than actually facilitating change for the betterHad Sweden not made the same mistake as other countries in discharging hospital patients into care homes (the UK was not alone here) it might have been well down the list.
Bloody hell Paul - how high is that horse of yours?Twist my point, challenge authority and disrespect the official instructions and guidance all you like. The red line is that anyone who knowingly ignores said instructions and guidance for their own gratification is selfish and irresponsible. A covidiot.
Is it possible for you to ever refer to people who disagree with you as something other than 'covidiots'? They're not stupid, they just disagree with you.It was just quicker than typing the rhetoric-free "Which, based on my experience of attending football matches, together with what we've seen in various scenarios in this country during the crisis, will probably be routinely broken by covidiots (i.e. the selfish and irresponsible ones who knowingly ignore prevailing instructions in pursuit of their own gratification), who it is hoped will be in such a minority as not to, or not be allowed to, spoil it for the rest of us or put us at increased risk."
Of course. If you bothered to properly read and understand the actual words I've written you'd see this answer is blindingly obvious.Is it possible for you to ever refer to people who disagree with you as something other than 'covidiots'? They're not stupid, they just disagree with you.
What's your problem now.Bloody hell Paul - how high is that horse of yours?
Continually calling people who are following published instructions/guidance idiots is not discussion and merely confirms what I said earlier.The logic is simply to follow published instructions and guidance on matters of public health during a pandemic. Hardly a big ask and certainly not idiotic. Staggered it's even up for discussion.
Were you discussing the topic when you posted those three pictures ?What's your problem now.
Discuss the topic not the poster. You could perhaps start by giving us your considered description of those who knowingly and flagrantly flout and ignore the prevailing instructions and guidance during a public health crisis. Enlightened? People's champions? Rebels with a cause?
Looks like buncranaboy could lend a hand too.You'll have to point out where on earth I've done that. Get derekn on the case too.
Covidiots again......Looks like buncranaboy could lend a hand too.
Don't worry boys, the footy will be back soon. Assuming the covidiots don't end up scuppering it for the rest of us. Oh sorry, no, that'd be the FA's fault, they don't care about non league. Obviously.
However, here is a piece from 25 Swedish doctors and scientists, stating that the immunity rate is more like 10% at the most. Aimed at American readers, it warns that Sweden's death rate is higher than the USA's and asks other countries to use Sweden as an example not to follow.Unlike here, where we allowed a committee of 'experts' to lead our battle against Covid19, the Swedes put Anders Tegnell, a leading epidemiologist, in charge of their response to the pandemic. He fronted up every news conference and admitted that the Care Home mistake contributed to 50% of the subsequent death rate.
However it is now generally generally agreed that a majority of Swedes have immunity to the virus as a result of not locking everybody up and that augers well for any second wave.
Here's a rather slanted view from the BBC, you can make your own mind up.
