    It's just got more serious here. The president has stopped all workers including builders etc from working, unless for health services.

    There's no idiots cycling about here or tossers having parties.

    To link it a bit to the 'other' thread, we could be like the Chinese and arrest Doctors for "making false [sic] comments" that "severely disturbed the social order".

    Yeah, that was the main point and why I asked. I was seeking confirmation on if this was consistent with what had been spoken about on here recently regarding testing and the numbers. So rather than a more obvious comeback, care to enlighten?

    It might be. But if I tell you and it spreads alarm and despondency that would be an offence so I won't.

    TDLR: just watching Ickeís lastest offering on fiddling the numbers
    South Korea seems to be managing to do the tests just fine.

    My response about David Icke was made to indicate that perhaps a better source of information could be found than someone who believes that the royal family are shape shifting lizards. Google "National Health England", for example.

    Thanks for the info. But unsurprising because until a transmission rate of less than 1 is reached the virus will spread. It will run its course now or later. Unless and until an effective vaccine is widely available, those who now successfully suppress the level of infections will see later outbreaks.

    Will be interesting to watch the numbers leak out (in a morbid kind of way).

    What, and miss the easy option of a comeback question?

    Anyway, you may get (sortvof) your wish:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-52086284

    "The former chairman of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport select committee called for knowingly sharing misinformation about Covid-19 to be made an offence."

    Although, as far as i know, my information is not misinformation.


    Perhaps slightly ironic that also in the news is "churches packed at Easter" Trump:
