The way this is going traditional exam halls are unlikely to happen

From what ive read, people with even no symptoms can spread it. Which would be a nightmare.

On Italy demanding northern areas change the rules on testing...

The last figures today were equally as bleak as the last with the new regime which tells you all you need to know really. is offline

The Mater is the only hospital in Dublin set up to handle this. They recently announced that they have set up a 6 bed ward to handle Covid 19.

Wonder if this is that person
People were posting about something happening in every Irish hospital at some stage during the week. Stop with this BS please.

But you just said it proves that it isn't "BS". How so if you can't back it up? Are we supposed to take your word for it? A stranger on the internet?

Well, good jaysus. That’s quite worrying.
However it’s not a death sentence if anyone gets c19. That message needs to be reinforced. There’s a lot of people panicking.

Actually here it is.
That means their testing equipment must be a 48 hour test until confirmation of positive.

I'm going to close this thread and open the new one up without all this conspiracy talk cluttering it up

If anyone has a reliable source then fine - post that source. If not do not claim your word on this site is better than anyone else's or that your claims carry any weight whatsoever
