    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.

    I think he knew what he was doing, and has got what he wanted. Also the Government can say they are taking the pandemic seriously, but have to balance other concerns so opted for level 3 restrictions as the best solution. The problem for the Government is if these restrictions fail, but they will probably succeed as we have seen in Kildare. So in the medium terms both sides are placated, until we open up again and cases start to rise again.

    Sick of the gaa bashing by the usual anti gaa/soccer crowd.any gaa thing I’ve been at locally everything done to the best of ways possible.plenty of crap going on all over and it’s not all the gaa fault.

    It’s not bashing, it’s criticism.

    If it was the local hockey team same thing.

    We are not hearing funnily enough about basketball, hockey, etc...

    It’s the GAA’s fault when it’s happening on their property or their watch as organized by them.

    The game is up. We're letting it rip whether we like it or not.

    We could just go to the market. Ask the private hospitals to provide ICU beds and pay for them as needed.

    As far as I know when they handed back the private hospitals it was specified that they could take some or all back if needed

    If I give someone 50 euro and they burn in front of my face, I feel like giving them another 50 euro is retarded. Why do and why should we keep on giving the HSE (and feckload of other public services) the money to burn in front of our face.

    Probably won't even take the three weeks unfortunately.

    Why such pessimism? Last week, Philip Nolan said he was cautiously optimistic about Dublin, and that the R in Dublin was getting close to 1. If the whole country moves to level 3, then I think there is every chance of getting R to 1 or a bit below. That's all we need to get stability.

    Mad virus altogether. The graphs emerging from different countries showing it going through the roof everywhere. (except nz)

    My local Spar is the same. I tend to only go later in the evening after work and after my daily walk, so not many out and about then, but you will always get one damn fool coming in without a mask. Honestly, we have far too many idiots who don't care if they kill someone else.

    As a people, we all need to become more aware of the role the media has played in all of this.

    Never forget that they're out there to make money off your lack of judgement and tendancy to draw towards shock headlines.

    I was only watching the VM half 5 news and they obviously selected a certain type to interview on the street of Dublin. I'd say in editing, they choose the most entertaining to watch.

    Just be aware that your sources of information are there to make money from you and are designed to draw you in like a fly to ****.

    The media aren't reliable and haven't been in a long time.

    I'm suggesting buying ICU bed space as needed.

    Someone posted this earlier in the thread.
    If there have been 254 cases in the 65 + age bracket in the last week there will be a serious demand on ICU.
    Currently the 65 - 74 age cohort has a 5% lCU admission rate.

    5% of 254 is 12.

    10% fatality rate also which would translate to 24 deaths.

    You can't just buy ICU capacity though. The issue is a lack of trained professionals needed to run the ICU's. That's a medium to long term problem that the Government can't solve overnight.

    You mean the likes of RTE is not trustworthy despite their shiny new ad saying they are?

    Countrywide spread is a disaster. The country has become a macro version of Dublin.

    Seems to be getting more widespread now - up here in Sligo the numbers were low for weeks but when they're rising in the lower areas it's not a good sign

    Hopefully are seeking a peaking (or even small decrease) in Dublin. This is offset by larger increases outside Dublin

    One thing that this has done is actually given the government the opportunity to bring in more stringent penalties for individuals flaunting the rules. They can Spin it that “it was either penalties or lockdown”.

    I suppose but I'm more concerned with the whole testing of close contacts and sick pay etc. A poster mentioned the system in Poland which while tough gives more assurance that they tackle the spread more thoroughly.

    Once a disease is notifiable it should not be discretionary as a close contact to be tested and/or isolate and some sort of reference no should be given to individuals that trumps all red tape around sick pay/social welfare payments.

    All of the main supermarket retailers Dunnes/Tesco/Supervalu/Aldi/Lidl in Dublin are failing to enforce customers wearing masks or their staff wearing visors properly. This weekend I watched people in Tesco with masks worn below their chin eating fast-food in the store and sniffing into Shampoo bottles

    if only the HSE had some sort of a warning or alert to train people or recruit people from overseas (ex-pats maybe) to cover while they were training staff......


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,250 ✭✭✭Seamai


    I can't see the move up to level 3 having any major impact on the upward trajectory. I wonder in a few weeks time will NPHET be saying "I told you so" to the government if we have 1000+ new cases a day.
    Level 3 might have some chance if a few holes got kicked for flouting recommendations, but we all know that's not going to happen.
