    Level 3 has an impact

    On the topic of the GAA, my kids do camogie and while the local club and coaches are amazing, social distancing is nowhere in sight. While we're all avoiding one another like the (literal) plague, training sessions are full on, contact, group huddles, the works. It seems so strange my wife is spaced 2 meters apart, limited to 6 doing non contact dancing while GAA is a free for all.

    Your kids are in poorly ventilated overcrowded classrooms 8hrs a day. Outdoor training is a lot safer.

    I'm a student and have followed every single recommendation. Why should people like me be blamed? Idiotic way of thinking. Bizarre, honestly.

    I am not blaming you or anyone else who sticks to the recommendations

    Saw a group of 40+ year old women on the lash around town the other day. Stupid selfish 40+ year olds, bellends!

    Cop on with the student bashing. Im a student and following the regulations, as are all my friends. Its 50/50 as it is in practically every age group. Just the focus is on students, as ever

    I don't care what age group if you are having large gatherings and house parties, selfish bellends

    You'll never get the numbers down with schools open. They have to stay open but I just can't see how they can. The teachers will refuse to work soon anyway

    If we go into Level 4 or 5 I could see the teachers dropping tools, to be honest and I would largely support that. There is no standardised approach to teachers/schools and it leaves them very vulnerable.

    Nphet's job is to offer advice it is the job of government to weigh up that advice with other factors.
    You seem to be confusing the meaning of advice and an order.

    Exactly..

    Simple: take the advice and slated

    Don’t take it and go for a compromise/less restrictive measures: slated.

    Your constant posts about house parties and students suggest otherwise, but okay.

    Car crash interview now on Newstalk with Madigan. Siding with Danny McCoy over health professionals in NPHET.

    Apparently restrictions are "working" at present. My god useless government mouthpiece

    NPHET come out and say given the trend and rise in numbers we need a month "circuit breaker" if you need those 2 things to operate fully.
    Let's do the circuit breaker if it is required, but give people and businesses time to prepare. If the government comes out with a "Level 3" plan this evening, and the strategy is to cross our fingers, we'll be back here next week with Level 5 dropping out of the sky.

    I'd much prefer them to say we're going to a 4 week lockdown from Sunday evening with schools closed to get the numbers under control, do what you have to do to get ready.

    So Tony wanted to let everyone know he is back:D The people getting upset earlier should have realised the government would reject the advice to go to level 5. Those recommending the restrictions probably knew well the government would do so, but are now happy that a compromise has been reached. It also means people who were complaining about the Government previously, will now side with it, and be a bit more accepting of level 3 restrictions nationwide, which was probably the plan all along.

    Yup, and then people to have the cheek to go look what we're doing to their mental health by stopping them socialising. Why should I care about their mental health if they don't give a **** about my physical health or my parents physical health.

    You should hold that to a mirror.

    New Zealand are 6 hours away from the nearest country and unlike us, do not share a land border with another country. Anyone spouting on about New Zealand is a total idiot.

    This would mean that 780 million people have been infected worldwide.

    If the 1.04 million worldwide covid death total is correct, then the mortality rate is roughly 0.13%.

    Yes but people could have died from it and not known that was the cause of death if they were not tested....

    A sobering thread regarding the current situation in the UK. Of course it's unlikely to get that far gone considering stricter restrictions will be implemented before it can get that bad. Right?

    So, apart from what coverage this gets on the 6 o’clock news this evening, there is no brief being shown today?

    Ah right, fair enough! We'd be in a far better situation all round if more people did the same and took personal responsibility over things! Not involved in the GAA or sports myself, but from what I'm hearing coming out over the past few days it seems they really need to get their act together and start hammering local clubs not following the guidelines!


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,915 ✭✭✭spookwoman


    Someone has some serious delusions of grandeur if they think just because they are a good little so and so that everyone else is doing the exact same thing.

    I keep seeing that meme Set of encyclopedias for sale, no longer needed , the husband know f*cking everything.

    So a bunch of non-medical suits have ignored doctors orders on our behalf?

    Sounds great.

    Yeah because the suits actually have to think of a wide range of consequences. If anything the doctors have an easier brief here - if in doubt, lock down.

    However that's no way to run a country. The government has done exactly what was asked of them here - considered the medical recommendations, considered the wider impact and met somewhere in between.

    Some people seem genuinely annoyed we aren't locking down. Rather weird, though not an attitude you'd encounter offline.

    Huge questions now about this government. If they can't accept the advice of NPHET they aren't fit for office.

    They answer to us not NPHET

    Tony has damaged himself and NPHET. He was too impatient to make a statement. All he had to do was to highlight serious concerns all week and he would have got his greater enforcement and probably a mix of level 3 and level 4.
