    Surely its better to spend this time getting everything in position to deal with a second wave if it comes instead of doing absolutely nothing. in another thread on this board there is mass hilarity over england not achieving 100k tests a day wheras wales are capable of doing 2k maximum. as i said we are subbing out testing now so what happens if those countries get big spikes and cant do our tests for us. the covid track and trace i have just finished in newport is now going to be used by public health england. I have been involved in NHS work all the way through the pandemic and its the people at the top who are dismayed as to where we are preparation wise. there is tax payers money being spent propping up rugby regions coffers by installing field hospitals that in reality will only be dumping grounds for people who are close to death because they are not equipped with the likes of ventilators and medical gases needed to save lives. all this money should have been spent on testing centres and being prepared for the worst instead of flying by the seat of your pants hoping for the best. Of course there are lots of people out there who believe its all fake but having seen the wards overflowing and in one case in a hospital porter waiting outside the theatre doors whilst we convert it to a covid ward i can assure you it was all very real especially when my daughter working in the gwent contracted it.

    We're still in the first wave. A lockdown beginning and ending doesn't affect it.

    A second wave is once the virus becomes less aggressive/infectious/whatever for a while and dies down, then returns with a mutation or something that fires it all up again.

    We've still got the same spread, it hasn't finished yet. All we've done is put a lid on it for a while.

    1. More tests means more cases so the numbers are meaningless.
    Not correct - are we going to stop testing people for cancer or for pregnancy? More testing is a good thing and will reduce cases in the longterm, because you can learn where the virus is. Countries like South Korea and New Zealand tested widely and were able to control it much better. South Korea has 50 million people, 14,000 confirmed cases and 301 deaths. The facts speak for themselves.

    2. She's talking about excess deaths and the 'with/from coronavirus' death certificate arguments together - this doesn't make sense.

    3. Facemasks are training devices like nappies, they're to train you for a vaccine.
    Nappies aren't training devices, they are there to keep a baby's shit from going everywhere. Similar to the job of a face mask.

    "If masks are so important, please ask yourself why did nobody make them mandatory when we were at the peak of the virus?"

    This did happen in countries like South Korea and Singapore, countries which have much better figures than the UK (Singapore can be compared with London as they are similar sizes. It is the UK government's fault they weren't mandatory four months ago, not the facemask's fault.

    4. "You get one life and death has always been part of it, but somehow the media has managed to manipulate death to be utterly terrifying."

    No need to say anything about this ridiculous sentence :hehe:

    A nappy is a training device. :hehe:

    I keep thinking of that. This is the worst analogy I've heard in a long time. I thought she was a mother? A nappy is the complete opposite of a training device. You only use it because the baby/child isn't trained, and the purpose of toilet training is so that they don't need a nappy.

    Anyone who listens to Katie Hopkins for advice on a global pandemic needs to seriously have words with themselves.

    How about listening to scientists, doctors and other experts in their fields? You may actually learn some facts.

    I do find the backlash against progress and race to unlearn things pretty worrying. At a time when everyone has the fruits of humankind's knowledge in their hands, we seem to be fighting against it.

    I'm really off now, but she says face masks are there to prepare us for vaccination? What?! How does this make sense?! Primary school kids learn to cover their mouths when they cough. It's nothing at all like getting a vaccination.

    If I wanted to inject the whole world with a mind control drug, or whatever the theory is, I wouldn't make everyone wear a mask first. I'd be handing out another jab, one that makes people feel amazing so everyone wants it. Then I'd hit them with my mind controller and say "liked that, did ya? wait til you get a load of this one".

    Why would you do it with a facemask? It's total nonsense.

    In the dark ages, everyone unlearned what the Romans had done, and went from living in sanitary cities to living in mud huts cuddled up to their pigs for warmth. Looks like we're gonna do that again.

    I didn’t mention the Tories. There are plenty of scientific experts and doctors that aren’t working for the government, who have done plenty of research and have more knowledge and experience in the subject than you or I will ever have.

    If you don’t like wearing a mask, you sure as hell won’t enjoy being put on a ventilator.

    Perhaps, just perhaps they are telling us to wear masks for our own safety, rather than some ridiculous conspiracy.
