    I don't follow COVID much but why is there still so much workforce disruption if the illness is now mostly mild

    Because while the legislation may have been removed, the advice is still to stay home and test/isolate.

    When will the work disruption ever end if covids not going away ?

    People poison themselves with bad food.

    Junk food = inflammation

    High blood pressure on its own not such a big deal, manageable. High blood pressure with inflammation = "muh immunocompromised!"

    Exactly my point Kaiser .

    Phil is representing but not' representative' of every nurse and healthcare worker out there . Just as the teachers unions were representing what many of their union members were saying but not all.

    Can't fault them for doing what they are paid to do whether we do or don't agree with everything.

    I don't agree with the mask mandate being looked for but I think much of it is raising awareness that there are still pretty major impact on health services due to the higher numbers of cases , and trying to get the government to do something . Maybe they do believe it will make a difference . I am not convinced at this stage except continuing it in healthcare which is appropriate.

    We have gone from a situation where the service was recognised as being in crisis for the last few years to the old " head in the sand, nothing to see here, health service is coping " attitude from the minister and the government because they are unable to address it properly.

    I am sorry you had a bad experience , but that is a personal anecdote and does not represent fairly what is going on in the health service .

    It doesn't but it's a good dress code to get behind



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,943 ✭✭✭ Red Silurian


    It was either this or invest in the health service

    One industry that boomed during COVID was shoulder chip making. People really do need to let things go, especially decisions and opinions offered during a period of a heightened level of public panic. These don't matter anymore. It is now very much if we had known then...

    It's comical really the unions calling for masks

    It's not like they have any medical expertise to be making these judgement calls



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,711 ✭✭✭✭ Richard Hillman


    We've been saying this in the thread for over a year now. The threat Mask mandates are forever. Even if Covid disappeared, when the hospitals are inundated with winter flu patients, government can introduce mask mandates to show the media that they are "doing something".



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,718 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    I believe this will happen unfortunately

    It's not like anything is gonna change with hospitals and ICU



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,718 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    Anyhow as long as decision making is directed by the CMO there's some reassurance

    Left to policians and union leaders, they'll go with whatever way the wind is blowing

    Well the general secretary of the INMO is Phil ní Seaghda a former ICU nurse so your statement isn't overly accurate

    What she lacks is the political expertise that restrictions have on votes



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,718 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    Actually will be interesting to see the level of compliance if there is a mandate

    As a nation we tend to be more compliant than the British for example

    I know I'll certainly be reluctant to wear one in retail and will flout the law



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,444 ✭✭✭ dominatinMC


    Whilst I agree with a lot of what you said, where is the threat of a "lockdown lite" this winter? Absolutely no evidence of this



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,152 ✭✭✭✭ lawred2


    Indeed. And those that don't want to wear masks every winter can be vilified and held responsible for the state's failures to provide a sufficiently capable healthcare system. And the usual useful dopes will be in full vocal support.

    Wins all round.
