Doesn't make any difference where they are driving to, there is absolutely no harm in it, it is safer to everybody than walking or public transport.

I don't think its sunk into a lot of people yet, they see it on the tv, about other places and its not affecting them so just carry on, in my job, the one i am still employed in i spend most of my time going around with a spray and cleaning anywhere the other workers might have touched, [ whether it works or not? ] i stink of chlorine, but hope it will keep me safe?.
But as i understand, people who have died from this virus you will never see them again, you won't be going to funerals.

But for saying there is a killer on the streets, the government needs to go round the streets with a van and recorded message blasting out "Stay in the house! keep off the streets killer about!"

These stupid kids and stupid parents who letting them out, appreciate it hard, but for their sakes and everyone else’s they’ve got to be kept in. I go on another forum and apparently these kids are going around in their gangs causing mayhem , spitting , coughing on people just to get a laugh and reaction!!
Should be a curfew now and anybody with no good reason to be out should be confined somewhere and guarded as obviously these morons don’t get it! Too thick ! That’s where the army should be brought on and quite frankly I can see people lashing out at these kids and don’t blame them ! Should be more like China during this and be rougher , Sod human rights and all that garb , if you out causing trouble then expect severe consequences!

i was playing with the WHO figures and adding my own % to try and find some comfort. At the moments the stats are comforting. Although i dont think we are being told the entire truth given the mobilisation going on. However when i came to thinking about the little graphs they show with a steep curve and peak and falling away that didnt tally with another graph illustration i saw to explain effect of social distancing. All social distancing seems to offer is a slow down in how fast and far it spreads in a given time period. so instead of say 500000 confirmed infections in one months time it will be in 2 months time but doesnt end just keeps expanding. Maybe the extra time will help in the search for a vaccine and in the speed of social breakdown. can anyone explain how they think the virus will actually end? Does it die off, does it need humans to propogate, what happens to the virus in a person who has died (is burying ok or should all be cremated?) Is the thinking that the virus will die out when it has no more people to infect.. I suppose we watch other countries ahead of us.
Heres World Health Organisation Stats (% of population mine if correct)
Global Population 7,8 Billion. Confirmed Covid 19 cases 466,000 (0.0006%). Deaths 21000 (0.00026%)
UK Population 68 million. Confirmed Covid 19 Cases 9533 (0.014%) Deaths 463 (0.00068%)
Italy Population 60 million Confirmed covid 19 cases 74000 (0.123%) Deaths 7505 (0.0125%)

That is the whole point of social distancing, it is to slow it down, slowing down the rate spreads the infections over time not just delay them by a fixed amount, this has at least two benefits.

Firstly if it slower there will be less cases at any one time so the NHS and NHS supplies will not be as inundated which will save lives.

There are both possible immunisation and treatments that reduce the severity on the horizon, the more time we have the more likely these will help and will save lives.

There is an enormous amount of research and studies going on.
