Re: Is anyone here still furloughed..

I am still on furlough and expect to be last man back. Company car lease ran out so was collected. Company asked if I wanted a hire car while waiting for replacement. As car had done zero miles I didn't take their offer. So I expect they will take the others back before calling me. Hopefully when th...

Re: NURSES

Simple supply and demand. Work out staffing levels and the amount you need to pay to fill the roles. Like all large organisations you have a budget and have to decide whether they spend the money on staff or equipment. The less you spend on staff the better the equipment you can buy.

MPs do not give themselves payrises. That is a misconception.

Their salaries are determined by an independent body.
Who determines who is on the independent body I wonder?

Eh? 30k dead so far. Where do you get 400,000 from?
Forecasts suggested if we did no social distancing deaths would be 500k.

Re: Covid - 19

Everyone is entitled to an opinion and there maybe more people damaged or die as a consequence of the lockdown and recession than by Covid. The government appears to have the support of the country by doing this. If the govt did nothing and as a result 500k died, they wouldn't be trusted again so ma...

Re: Covid - 19

Look at the total deaths normally in the 1st 7 months of a year and look at this year it should be an excess of 30000 bar 2001 when it was more then now but they dont like to tell you that https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/883780/Weekly_...

Good point Bill. Death rate for flu quoted is 0.1% of those infected is for UK. This is probably lower than other countries as people with greatest risk are offered a jab in UK

Flu has infection rate of 1.3. ie a person catches flu will infect 1.3 people on average. With Coronavi...

Not sure of govt inflating the numbers unless I misunderstand you Marky We know there is under reporting of the 75k infected cos they are only testing limited numbers. I heard some academic statistician suggest only 5-10% of infected have been counted. The death rate also suggests the same unless we...

To check this out, I looked at the British government’s own statistics on total deaths registered weekly across the UK. It shows that in the week ending on the 8th of March 2019, 10,898 people died in total in the UK. This year, in the week ending the 6th of March 2020, the equivalent figure was al...

Re: Covid - 19

Just read the French health are advising avoiding NSAID drugs if you have Coronavirus. Apparently a load of rugby players who use loads of diclofenac, ibuprofen and aspirin for recovery aren't doing so well.
