    The daily numbers

    Mod warnings:
    1. Please interact in a civil manner
    2. Do not tell others what to do, or what to post
    3. It is against site rules to seek or offer any medical advice. Please do not post here about your symptoms asking what to do. Contact your doctor by telephone and they can advise you as appropriate
    4. If you have a problem with a post report it and leave the modding to the mods

    In terms of thread content:
    • Treat everything you read here with caution. Anything posted is from an anonymous internet poster. You cannot assume anyone has any "specialist" knowledge whatever they claim
    • Statistics are important to some (and I personally pay a lot of attention to them), but they are of very little use to anyone who is already caught up in this, or indeed knows of people who are caught up
    • Whatever your own views are please recognise others are entitled to different views., Even if at different extremes please do not try and repeatedly ram your views down the throats of those who have differing views
    • Cut out any cover-up/conspiracy stuff. If you have a reliable source quote it (not just their words but provide a link to a reliable source) - otherwise your claims carry little if any weight. If you wish to discuss conspiracy theories we have a dedicated forum for that and it’s not this one
    • If the likes of the HSE have a verified Twitter account we can assume what they post is accurate. Randomers on here or elsewhere cannot be considered "official" or "reliable" sources
    • If people wish to flout the restriction rules that is up to them. They cannot complain at the consequences, be that direct action from the authorities, exposure in Social Media (not here) or being shunned by locals, friends, family etc. If they post about it here, or encourage others to flout the rules, trying to appear macho, or thinking they are above the rules or simply being a smart arse, posting privileges will be removed
    • If you don't want to see discussion about Trump perhaps stay clear of this thread between the hours of 22:00 and 01:00. This is a thread for "breaking news" so please do not expect posters to discuss things happening "now" in other threads. It's not discouraged but equally posters expect to discuss such issues in this thread (added 14/04/20)
    And now a maths lesson:
    “Average” is a non-defined term. “Mean” and “Median” are both mathematically defined terms.
    Mean = the sum of a series of numbers divided by the number of items in the series
    Hence the Mean of 1, 2, 3, 3, 4, 7, 8 = (1+2+3+3+4+7+8)/7 = 4
    Median is the midpoint number. In the above example it’s the 4th number in the sequence of 7 numbers – in this case 3
    Both numbers are examples of “averages”. Not every average is the “Mean”, not every average is the “Median”, but every “Mean” and every “Median” number is an average

    All threadbans carry over, but we will reconsider if anyone wishes to discuss it further via PM

    We're all going on a summer holiday
    No more working for a week or two
    Fun and laughter on our summer holiday
    No more worries for me or you
    For a week or two

    Hopefully we won't reach 30 :rolleyes:

    Hopefully new Covid-19 cases fall off a cliff.

    Replied to you too late on the old thread:


    Possibly due to the low level of cases that "Data Validation" activity is no longer being completed to the same level at the weekend while testing continues at pace. Maybe the start of a weekend lag in our data which we previously did not have?

    Hopefully part 20 isn't a portent

    I think you're right yeah. This has happened mid week however, it also happened last Thursday. We must just get used to it!

    Does the post count fall off match the rate of daily cases. It seemed a few months ago we have a new thread every few days. The R number of posts may be a reliable indicator of the current spread of the virus?

    Thread title needs updating, I'm finding this very confusing!

    That's a nice weekend project for ya :D

    I would like when all this is officially over to create a summary of the threads into a single post with how the following changed over the course of time:
    • Post frequency
    • What people wanted (Stop flights/lock down now/open up now/stop flights)
    • Biggest worry (Italian rugby fans/cheltenham/cleaning groceries/joggers breathing/BLM protests/'Muricans)
    • Best of WhatsApp (Hotel on Pearse Street/Army on the streets/"Dear Pub Owner" letter)

    Better than I was expecting on the new case front.

    I see the Galway Races are still going ahead, absolute madness.

    Would the 1 death be that doctor from the Mater who passed away or are deaths reported that quickly?

    It probably is unfortunately, ICU deaths are reported fairly fast


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,652 ✭✭✭✭ ninebeanrows


    17 cases

    Behind closed doors.

    I'm down here for a few days at the moment, hotels have plenty of rooms for next week, there really won't be that many traveling by all accounts and bars & restaurants are booked out most days already.

    Does anyone know why the recovery number hasn't been revised over the last few weeks? it's creeping back up, I know there has been an increase in new cases but surely there have been recoveries also?


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,652 ✭✭✭✭ ninebeanrows


    The rogue number yesterday is put into context but I’m sure the media will focus on the negative

    Let’s get back living and moving

    Can we just look at what Germany is doing and copy it so we can live alongside the virus and prosper with only minimal local lockdowns

    No spectators,races ongoing for the last month.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,535 ✭✭✭✭ ACitizenErased


    One thing I've spotted about yesterday's figures is the demographic is actually quite a bit older. 19 cases out of 36 yesterday were over the age of 45.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,652 ✭✭✭✭ ninebeanrows


    This time last week Glynn alluded to us having daily cases well in excess of 50 by now

    We have been sold a dud

    I think that answers the question as to when the building site cluster was added

    Aye The RTE app is already at it now, running a headline “Virus could cause “huge loss” in hospital bed capacity.

    I think we heard that at the beginning.

    And you'd like to respond to the case total being better than feared, how exactly?
