    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

    Transmission in the community, cases go up, cases get into schools.

    Schools in Munster and Connacht largely unaffected due to low number of cases. Why should all schools close nationwide because there's uncontrolled transmission in a few counties.

    They shouldn’t. Open them up. Send them back. Along with lifting more restrictions for the public.

    Cases go up. Blame the public.

    Cases go down. Government and nphet w4nk each other off.

    We were locked down to protect the elderly.

    Now they want to give the elderly more freedom and still keep the rest of us locked down.

    People can now visit care homes - I can’t visit my 81 year old mam who lives at home.

    Can anyone explain wtf is going on?

    So, I was curious if the new walk in testing centres might in any way diminish the reliability of GP referral data to be the "canary in the mine".

    I asked Dr. Knut.

    His reply:

    "Potentially, though supposedly these are in areas of high disease activity already, so the ship might have sailed on the early warning by the time self referral for testing - have to wait and see how and where self-referral will be rolled out."

    What may be a factor too, only today I saw that people who have symptoms are not to go to these testing centres. So I assume they will go to their GP instead.
    GP referrals should still be a good metric then.

    The key to the walk-in centres, which most countries had established 12 months ago is the tracing infrastructure if that’s not there we will just have more cases and still no clue where Typhoid Mary is hiding.

    Presume those pop up testing centers are going to lead to an increase in positive cases and some lovely bonus worry for our government


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,550 ✭✭✭ ShineOn7


    From the first page of the first thread, January 22nd last year
    Every few years we have a terrifying, apocalyptic pandemic. Will always turn out to be nothing (until it turns out to be something)

    Im already deeply concerned for the 101st time since the last time. I suggest holding firm, just another few weeks, and its important to always remember that we are always in this together for what feels like forever.

    In other countries they go hard on the track and trace to find the potential infected fast that is not done in Ireland and until they start going back more than just three days it’ll never work.

    Hospital numbers at 8pm

    Total 310 (down from 325 last night)
    ICU 75 (down from 76 last night)

    Last Wednesday
    Total 343
    ICU 82

    The question is does the total figure 310 of which 75 in ICU merit another month of Level 5 lockdown?? We should be well under 300 in hospital by the weekend.

    I personally don't think so, madness if the 5k rule or a different distance rule of say 10 or 20k remains.
