U would honestly think there's millions dying in the streets the way this has gone
Report Latalomne March 17, 2020 1:18 PM GMT
They've rescheduled this already, so I have ZERO doubt that there will be a 2019/20 World Champion.  That it takes place in May is certainly a big price off the back of this decision.

Left unchecked as of yesterday, the Imperial College model was saying 510,000 dead by August.  Even after yesterday's action, they are still predicting 250,000 dead.

There's 1543 confirmed cases, but only those requiring hospitalisation are being tested.  It's thought that around 10 times that number are out there.

Sorry, 20 times that number.

These simulations go some way towards explaining the original UK policy.  Essentially the expectation is that once you remove lockdown/quarantine (as China is now doing), it is inevitable that you see a secondary bounce because a large proportion of the population's immune systems have no exposure to the virus.

spot on this

as I said on here a few days ago, the only thing you can guarantee is that government reactions will be a far bigger problem to the world population than the virus itself

and how right I was

over time people seem to have become afraid of germs, disease etc
by exposing the body to moderate to low levels of germs, the body builds up natural immunity
being well, then becoming sick & the body healing itself is a natural process, its always been this way
forget all about vaccines & the government "advice"
pretty obvious to me that is another of these "world events" that we've become accustomed to in recent years

just my opinion

How much of a danger would playing this behind closed doors have posed?

It can only have been called off for financial reasons.
Report bobweenit March 17, 2020 8:35 PM GMT
It was a fans event wansnt it thats why it was called off! Didn't want the paying hoards banging the door down 4 entry after getting told only a hour before they couldnt go in after booking a week in Llandudno. Typical scamming Barry move
