I don`t know what the connection is between the BBC and coronavirus but cases have increased dramatically to nearly 3000, not good news. 

See previous post a couple of pages back which mentioned BBC reporters harassing kids returning to schools.

The BBC is the envy of the world. A subscription basis would destroy everything that makes it unique.

I regard it as truly astonishing value at £3 per week.

It is a pity some people cannot see this. But then human nature is that you never appreciate something until it is gone.

I think it is a rip off at £3 a week. Very few good programmes, they don’t bid for the Football which has the highest viewing. If people want to pay £3 a week then fair enough but for everyone else it is about time they put adverts in to cover their cost. Why should I and others have to pay a tv licence to watch Sky TV?  Bit like having to pay for a phone line I never use to have broadband, about time someone came up with a broadband package that you don’t have to pay for a phone line or nominal fee at least.

Well worth it not to have  Murdoch News until he gets his way.

So what? Schools are safe because it is clear as day that this virus is safe to circulate around children. Does it really matter if there is an "outbreak" in a school? No, but then again most people who read this post have been crippled with fear over the past 6 months so won't have a proper perception of risk anymore. Will their parents end up in hospital? No. Will they make their grandparents sick? Very unlikely unless they're on deaths door already. People need to stop focusing on the egotistical politicians and the self serving press and start thinking for themselves.

Unfortunately when dealing with the general public, figure it out for yourselves doesn’t help.

I can’t imagine the inbreads around Crewe will get the the right answer.

They need clear, simple instructions.

You don't have any sick relatives or friends?

If kids didn't have parents and grandparents and maybe greatgrandparents there may not be a problem...... providing we keep them off the streets, off public transport and out of shops etc...... where other people go.

A great deterrent would be a new law....

If you transmit covid and someone dies...... you have to die too.

Just a thought. 😊

I don't get your point. I have some elderly relatives (80s) but they've not asked for the economy to be shut down on their behalf. You may have noticed that the waiting list for NHS treatment is several million. Having an ailment and catching Covid does not result in guaranteed death. Unfortunately mis-information has resulted in millions of people unnecessarily shielding, exasperating their conditions going into the winter as a direct result of isolation caused by scaremongering.

Can you tell me the survival rate of those who have been diagnosed with Covid in Carehomes? Considering 30% of care home residents die within 12 months of entering the care home system the stats might surprise you.

Isolation wasn't introduced to save the people, it was to save the NHS.

No it wasn't.  People shielding who were isolated were shielded to protect them.  

Also the mantra to stop the NHS from being overwhelmed wasnt so they didn't have to work too much, it was to save lives.

You love a strap line, in this case, Save Lives came before protect the NHS.  Stay at home to save lives and protect the NHS....  so protecting the NHS was a by product of staying at home and saving lives.

You have this wrong Geo, but carry on, please.

I will..... because I'm right.

I never mentioned working to much.

Not surprising really.  Pubs will be closing again soon as well, which again isn't surprising given the complete disregard for the rules by both publicans and punters.  I will have no sympathy for them when it happens because they have been given an opportunity to prove they can run these places safely and implementing the rules and in the main they have failed to do so.  Places that serve proper sit down meals have generally done a good job but pubs have been a free for all since re-opening.

Again, this post is an example of the way that society has been brainwashed into completely disproportionate fear over this virus. "run these places safely?" This virus is not a product of the pub. The virus does not spontaneously appear when we don't follow the arbitrary rules created by self serving scientists and politicians, rules influenced by a petrified general public that they themselves created. The virus isn't closing down the economy, our freedoms and our right to see family members, the government is based on their own arbitrary parameters.

Do people on here actually agree on the whole with these draconian measures? Boris stated very early on that "Every Covid related death is a tragedy". Much that has come afterwards is a direct result of this quite frankly childish mantra. People are aware that mortality is guaranteed as part of the package of life aren't they? If you deem death as tragic (especially the death of very old people) then you're in for a pretty miserable time as you yourself march ever closer to the inevitable end.
