Magic__Daps - 1. Why do we need to lockdown a whole country when only 300 people (under 60) have died of this virus out of 45,000?Where did you get that figure of under 300? This from england.nhs.uk/statistic site 02/04/20-14/10/20 (so not even from the patient zero start):

The longer it goes on, the more I am coming around to your way of thinking, mate. We are half-arsing absolutely everything. Can't make testing work, can't make track and trace work....

probably, i can see both sides but if you don't eradicate covid via a lockdown you're still not safe as an older/vulnerable person, you can't see it, you don't know who has it, you can't hide away for the next 3 years, so at some point you'll likely catch it
proper nutrition, clean water, fresh air, sunlight, exercise, low stress, low radiation exposure, regular positive social contact
this is the message everybody should be getting but especially those in that category
they will improve their chances of surviving dramatically
sat indoors all day, worrying, alone, is the last thing they need to be doing

i agree, talking about lockdowns doesn't touch on other issues such as mental health, financial hardship, relationship pressures, we're stacking up huge problems in so many other areas and as i said above, if you can't eradicate it with a lockdown what's the exit plan here?
I might be stating the obvious here but aren't lockdowns to minimise the casualties until the vaccine comes along?

He'd visited Kettering General Hospital when he made that claim, except there weren't any cases in the county at that stage.
