there was also a report about rival american companies trying to outbid each other for support / medical supplies and equipment...

they're doing it to themselves as well!

hopefully we won't see anything like that here (apart from the profiteering muppets selling stockpiled hand sanitiser etc.)

The mayor of New York just let the cat out of the bag - Ventilators cost $20,000 each last week, this week the identical ones $50,000 , he almost swore, no guess who makes them "Chinese"!

You could not make this stuff up, goes to show what their priorities are, think there's going to be some serious backlash against China when/if this ends.

There will always be arguments over the numbers and who died 'of it' rather than 'with it'. Tested corpses, and those that were never tested, etc.

This is the real life impact of it .. my local paper

Of course an expert in metascience would question data. That's his job
Whilst he's collating exact precise data what do we do til he comes up with the data he's happy with?

That's a bit of an oversimplification, it's about the way the data is being collected and used

On the other thread some are saying the opposite in that deaths are being overplayed and that if we had done nothing there would be a small blip in deaths and it would largely go unnoticed

I read that, it's because of food shortages but if there's no food in the supermarkets what's the point of raiding them?
I hope I'm right when I say it won't happen here as our supermarkets have started to function fairly well recently under the circumstances, let's hope our own scumbags have worked that one out.

I observed the restrictions in a super market earlier in the week. A woman 2m infront picks up a tin of soup looks at it and puts it back in a different place on the shelves. It must have had the label the wrong way around on the shelf, wasn't the one she wanted so put it back with the ones of the same recipe. I wanted a couple of tins of soup but was unsure which tin she'd put back so left it. Supermarkets should be telling people not to handle goods over the tannoy or the other restrictions are pointless.

You'll probably need to visit a store.
My missus has just got back from Tesco, there was a short queue of a couple of minutes ( 2 metre markers in place) to get in, the shelves were reasonably full, there were eggs and bread but no bog roll, maximum of two items the same, the checkout was done in an orderly fashion again 2 metre markers. All in all not too bad for a Saturday evening
