Arnie,
what a long memory you have. (wheel tappers and shunters). Now the bus shelters in "Morecambe" are full of drug dealers and poles. :D :D

Well who would have thought that, this is the 21st entry on this thread, one more and John will equal his own record of 22 entries with the thread 'Ration Book'. That's the way to do it !

Don't think that you are getting off that easy !

A medical report in Germany says that people in the UK are not going to their GP's for fear of catching the virus. They conclude with "people with chronic illnesses are missing out on scheduled treatments and so endangering their own lives". This report also said that this is also happening in Germany, especially cancer and dialysis patients are playing Russian roulette with their own health.

It has also been reported that people in care homes are being sent back from hospital to their centers carrying the virus but the centers were not informed about the contaminated state of the old persons. Now that's how to make up the missing numbers :shock:.

This can only increase the total number of deaths, making things look worse than they should ever have been.

Just what is behind all of this ?????

Howdy,
My neighbour is an EMT (works on the ambulances) he said its never been this quiet. People think they are helping by not calling 999 (911), they don't want to be an 'extra' burden on the hospitals, which is of course very considerate but ultimately not an all together sensible decision.
Very strange times we live in...……..

Arnie,

why do I get the impression that you are steadily pulling out your last couple of hairs :lol: :lol:.

Pinky,

that is exactly one aspect of my reasons for objecting to the lockdown 'as it is', at least here in Spain where it is still much tighter than it ever was in the UK.

Yet again looking at the 'Worldometer' index, which is updated daily: I can't help but notice that almost all 'not first world countries' are reporting minimal deaths compared to us, so called, 'first world' peoples. I guess this can only be down to the 'factual reporting of deaths'.
What I mean is: If a 90 year old goes into hospital in Wacka Wacka Land and dies, they conclude that the patient was old and ill and their time was up. In the 'civilized west' they do tests and if corona was (perhaps) present, it gets blamed for that death. Had they done a targeted 'test' for diabetes that would also have been there as would any number of other ailments had anyone specifically looked for them. That's how to invent a problem :idea:.

During a week long study on 'testing methods and equipment' one guy tested 4 times positive and 3 times negative. When 'tests' are all 'grey' as opposed to black or white, it is down to those compiling the statistics which way they wish for things to go. Scientific EVIDENCE is only then valid AFTER it has been verified. Not one single method of testing or counting has itself yet been verified, so how can they put the entire population of the world in an 'open prison' based upon pure speculation :?:

In Germany hospitals are now advertising that sick people should come back to hospital as they (the hospitals) NEVER even got up to 60% of capacity during the peak of the CRISIS. That is lower than on any old weekend all year round and no where near the usual winter flu 'rush'.

That is FACT !!!

Those who do not want to 'put their head in the lions mouth' and risk getting this deadly virus 'because they have underlaying conditions and may well die if they catch the virus in hospital' will almost certainly discontinue their essential treatment and so are likely to die anyway; what a dilemma ! How many will opt for suicide before capitulation ?
Those killed by corona who never even had it :shock:.

By the way, the WHO (who ever they are) are now saying that the virus could vanish during summer and may never return :?.

WHAT !!!!!

They have destroyed the worlds economy, put countless millions of people out of work, perhaps forever (in their lifetime), and now it 'might have been a shadow and not a monster. These pricks need putting in an asylum :o !

THEY 'W.H.O.' make Tony murdering Blair look like Mother Teresa.

Finally congratulations to John for smashing his own record by 8% !

Bill.


With regards to the testing of footballers here in the UK they get tested at the weekend and get the results Tuesday or Wednesday so player A may test negative on the test but could have caught the disease the day after so he will be passing the virus all over until his next test comes back positive so he has had a week to spread it about until the powers that be can get a kit that tests within the hour it looks like we are all up shit creek without paddles.

Bill,
in regard to your comment above about 'me down to my last couple of hairs'. Its both teeth and hair. Some of the bottom set are still surviving, incidentally, I have a dental appointment next Friday and the Receptionist from the dental centre rang to confirm that I had no sysmtoms of the dreaded lurgy. Listed all the symptoms Have you got this? No. Have you got this? No Till she got to Have you got a temperature? I bloody hope so, says I.
Hair is problematic, I shave what was left of it but grow it on on the chin.

Arnie,

ain't that what grows below the chin the roots of that what was once on top ;).

As for teeth, if you were here in Spain, you could have a sex change, then we could name you 'oneater' and you could get a job down on 'virgins corner' :o horrid memories of Singapore :lol: :lol: :lol:.
Come to think of it, you wouldn't need a sex change, down in Singa's it was pot luck what you got, a he, she, or an it :shock: .

I wonder how those 'trading their wares' are coping with social distancing :oops: :oops: :?: :?:
