    I mentioned that last week Seen, local shops have the lot but people have become sheeps to the Supermarkets and are fcuked if they can't get everything they want in one hit.
    Hopefully people will now get to know their local traders and see how valuable they are, if it wasn't for them most of us would be fcuked for essential items.

    That's been plastered all over the news today, it should actually read 'had no known health issues' she'd be an anomaly if there was nothing wrong with her.
    For the greater good, I hope they do find something wrong with her.

    It's a travesty either way for somebody to die at that age, RIP kidda.

    This chart shows what ODM was talking about when he was having a go at me the other day:lol
    you cannot compare countries on different dates based on death rates alone.

    Spains trajectory is just insane when everybody thought Italy was bad.

    As I've been predicting for a week mate:lol. That chart of deaths by date is excellent:clap:clap:clap

    Although I've been going on about us being in a good position relative to the increases for Spain, Italy and France, as the figures vary over the next week, it wouldn't take a massive shift in numbers for us to overtake France. According to the graph that I've created, we are only two to three days behind them at times, so we should be looking at their figures closely as the lockdown kicks in and hope that, if their figures do improve to be better than ours on my graph in the next week (as they should do) then the same thing happens to us.

    Figures from Spain for today show a slight improvement (well, in as far as 655 people dying in a day can be called an improvement).

    Official figures for the number of deaths over the last 6 days were 215, 344, 394, 462, 507 and 738, so 655 today is a move in the right direction :crossfingers

    Like Boris said yesterday, better to take the time to make sure you get the right stuff as wrong testing is worse than no testing

    When your country's politicians can make even Boris Johnson look sensible, it's time to concede defeat. I'm off to lick a few supermarket shelves, might as well get this sodding virus now and be done with it :lol

    Apparently most A&E departments are very quiet now, just goes to show how many soft bastards were abusing the system.

    Belgium's early lockdown doesn't seem to be helping them much.
