Quote from: Que on March 12, 2020, 08:11:25 PMOh, you think the whole thing will be done in a week's time? Not in a week, not in a month, and probably not not even in year's time...This virus is here to stay. Normality will only be restored when the larger part of the world population has developed a certain level of immune response, either through recovery after infection or through inocculation with a vaccine.Estimations are that during this "first wave" of the epidemic 40-70% of the world population will get infected.

Quote from: vandermolen on March 12, 2020, 10:43:00 PMThe UK governments is facing criticism for not going further, like the French or Irish for example, but I'm not sure that they are wrong and they seem to be following the advice of medical experts.
Quote from: Mandryka on March 13, 2020, 01:22:33 AMWhat I can't find anywhere is any details of the model that the British government is using, so that I can understand their response. Surely this must be in the public domain.I haven't checked, but ditto for the (opposed?) model that the French government is using. Que -- is there a united EC approach to this, a set of policies which give guidelines to all EU countries about (for example) when to close schools, restrict travel etc? Or is each country using a different model and following different objectives?
Quote from: vandermolen on March 13, 2020, 01:27:47 AMInteresting. I'm not sure what, if any, model they are following. I think they are just going by the advice of the Govt's Chief Medical Officer. The News today say that the majority of the people need to get the virus in order to build up 'herd immunity' otherwise it will keep coming back every year. Not a nice thought though.
Quote from: Jo498 on March 13, 2020, 01:32:49 AMA federal state like Germany has trouble getting 16 states and the federal goverment to take the same or similar measures, so I am pretty sure the EU will not be able to streamline measures and reactions.
