    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)
    • There is absolutely no good reason top try and forecast or predict daily numbers, so do not do so

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

    I was wondering where Paddygreen had gone. And I see him on the banned list. Pity, I thought those posts were pretty funny.....brought some light relief

    The dakotas in the US are an utter disgrace and still you've Americans in those regions dogmatically rejecting any form of state interference to try and save lives!
    Nurses in South Dakota apparently in disbelief that they've residents dying of covid in front of them and rejecting their diagnosis because covid isnt real!
    God trump has a lot to answer for

    South Dakota population 884k is at 942 deaths now
    94 in the last 48 hours alone, equivalent to 525 deaths in two days in Ireland :eek:
    Imagine that many people dying here? ****in hell

    It's things like this that completely change my mind back to the fact that covid is a dangerous disease, sometimes it's easy to forget or think otherwise when we have such good control of it here..

    I think they’re at >1 in 1,000 of all residents in the state dead. It’s not like a massive metropolis either, quite spread out and rural. Incredible numbers.

    How do they not know what is happening in the rest of the world and the science of this pandemic?
    Are they less educated than other states or is their information being censored by Republican biased media ?
    I can't understand how healthcare workers in other states are up in arms over Trump's mishandling , but not here .

    It’s incredibly political in the US, apparently some people in hospitals struggling to breathe are still refusing to believe it’s real. It’s a heavy-leaning red state, 61% voted trump, and republicans are over represented in covid stats.

    Yes I agree. Politicisation of Covid , is one of the worst things that Trump will be remembered for .

    This is their mayor! Merry thanksgiving to you too ya absolute tool 1000 people in your tiny farm are state are dead and youve not done an iota to prevent it, in fact she is to blame, covid relief money was spent on tourism campaign to attract people to the state. And look at all the comments, half of them are saying what a fabulous governor she is and wishing her happy holidays back while the other half are cursing her that nearly 1000 South Dakotans are dead . USA is a partisan state, I don't see how a state can function with such incredible polarisation on such sensitive issues, middle ground or balanced views on anything seems simply absent

    The US system and parliamentary systems are supposed to function with adversarial government, an adversarial press etc.

    It is the states with one opinion which are - or lets be honest, which were - considered inferior.

    I think the “even one life is too many” and the “do nothing/Covid isn’t real” camps are both equally cult like.

    It's a systemic polarization. Trump has shifted the overton window where the hate is betrayed publicly now. Single issue voters dont care for anything else but the single issue they espouse for. The hate will be more open going forward.

    The world all over is shifting to a more conservative bigoted outlook. Votes are asked on the basis of manufactured fear and victim mentality from the majority.

    What happens to the 'disappeared' listed in the OP?

    Is this a 'dragged out the back and a hiding behind the shed type deal'?

    I haven't seen those users in a while.

    I'm worried for their safety.

    Republican governor of Wisconsin was the same despite case numbers and deaths rising exponentially.
    Refused to mandate any restrictions .
    It was down to individuals and some of the non Republican mayors to bring in local restrictions, and they had their funding cut by the governor as result !
    It is so horrific that public clinics were open treating Covid patients in poorer areas , with staff working for free because they didn't have funding to pay them!
    One of my friends is working in one .
    This is one of the reasons Trump lost Wisconsin.

    It's ok for some of these highly paid officials to thumb their noses at a virus , which affects those in more crowded areas than they probably reside in . And they can afford to pay for hospital treatment when they get sick and expensive drug treatments, unlike the poorer citizens.

    Maybe other states like the Dakotas, would be voting differently if they had hit their peak of infection and deaths earlier this year ?
    I don't know , that country is a basket case .

    I didn't like his rhetoric especially e.g. about Mexicans, but my point isn't to defend Trump but to defend the idea of political alternatives.

    An official political culture which arrogates everything to itself is the worst outcome and you see it in this thread where people are confident that there is one establishment that can institute military policing or mandate forcible injections if it wants to.

    It’s make you wonder how people would react in a proper apocalyptic situation or a pandemic with maybe 40% death rate or something.

    It’s incredible to see the lack of resilience people have in these situations, easier to pretend it’s not happening and hope it “magically” ends. It’ll end eventually thanks to the work of others, and plenty will be convinced it was no big deal.

    Like the folks on here who berate those being careful, calling them scared or saying they enjoy the misery, when in reality they should be thanking them for lowering overall interaction. But far too selfish to see it.

    Cases rising in Kilkenny the last few days directly linked to a primary school, infected parents and passed onto their work colleagues.

    I presume the adults will count as community transmission?

    Of course they will, can't link anything to schools.

    Yes. Like the posts that repeat over and over how cases are low , ignoring the effects measures taken have on these numbers, and that it is only a mild illness , while in the next breath saying they know of noone infected or really sick with Covid .

    Paddy would be the sane one over there :)

    Jeez, just do it. Your travelling solo across the country to meet your partner, perfectly valid. Two months without seeing your partner is insane.

    Yes but Paddygreen is a clear and obvious windup merchant and posts accordingly unlike some others on the forum who actually expect to be taken seriously.
