    The new daily numbers thread

    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

    From what I’ve heard from my Aussie connections, Australia is pretty much back to normal. Why is it that we can’t be the same, despite Australia having a larger population than us?

    Flicking around there on the channels and saw a cricket match on BT Sport in New Zealand. Crowds on the grass terraces having picnics and not a mask in sight.

    Why can’t I use oranges instead of apples in my apple pie?

    Well I would imagine it’s the law forces are clamping down on members of public who don’t comply with restrictions and aren’t as lax as the ones here... or the Aussies are just generally more compliant than some of the Irish and taking it more seriously?

    Not sharing a land boarder with a different jurisdiction helps

    The numbers are going to be crazy by January, we are up to 1296 today. That isn't even considering the effect of Christmas eve, Christmas day and boxing day will have with all the family get togethers.

    Will it make that much difference, our family for example had been meeting anyway so I don't see what Christmas Dinner would make. Most families had been meeting anyway.

    Training apparently.

    Not sure why they left it to now for that.

    Lots of people will have made the journey home to various parts of the country, extended families and their children calling to houses for a quick visit or for the dinner.

    I've just read on the other thread that other countries are starting tomorrow.

    We are a farce.

    Doesn't work like that.

    From my understanding and from reading posters here, it's based on the following.

    Hiding away from everyone, only to look out the window to see what others are up to = Good

    Spending time with family = Worse than Hitler!

    I mean, I'm still waiting for someone, Tony Holohan included, to show me data, evidence, analysis or whatever, of outbreaks that originated in the hospitality sector. We know there's evidence of it in schools yet, they want them open...
    Someone in a previous thread basically said if you don't stay within 5km of your house, people will die...Still waiting for evidence on that one too.

    Whilst I don't personally know them, I know of 4 people who came in from the UK and two that came from a hotspot in the USA and they flaunted themselves all over Dublin...Where were the recommendations and restrictions on that?

    Anywho, is what it is

    Germany and Hungary started this afternoon after getting their shipments this morning like we did. Nearly everywhere else starts tomorrow morning. Meanwhile we can't get organised enough to start until next Wednesday.

    I don't know about that, who visits extended family for dinner in normal circumstances never mind a pandemic.

    You really didn't think we'd be up to speed, did you?

    That involves using some of the last 10 months to make a plan. We've spent the last 10 months, throwing **** at a wall to see what sticks, in association with Palpatine

    Already happening.

    .

    Imagine the positive boost we could have had from seeing an Irish person being vaccinated today and all over the news. It would have shown our intent to get this virus out of our lives. Instead we're a total outlier and we have people questioning why the hell we can't even get a small number of vaccine rolled out for 4 days - reinforcing the perception of a lazy and inefficient public service.

    You have multiple families meeting indoors over the Xmas period. This thing is going to explode over the next week.

    We can't say we haven't been warned but no people needed to have their normal Xmas period.
