I listened to Todd Greenberg head of the NRL yesterday he said everything should be done to keep going making sure all the players were clear to play and ready to keep playing which he had the full backing of all the players and clubs in
Playing behind closed doors and extending the season even if it meant delaying the start of the following season but one thing he made clear the season would be completed without losing fixtures

If at all possible
That's the difference between a professionally run organisation and the English RFL!

Big panic about nothing,
Over 2,500 people in Italy have died from this and yesterday the government said if they keep the death toll below 20,000 in this country it will be a success

But yeah nothing to panic about - unless of course you're totally selfish

you may not be old or have underlying health risks but you could transmit to somebody who could - still as long as you're ok eh?

Thing s can soon get out of hand. I work at a supermarket and it's completely crazy. People just buying everything haven't time to replenish stock before it's gone again. Like locust's devouring everything in their path. Making more people suffer needlessly through greed.

That's the point I made earlier in the week God help us if everybody had had that mentality between 1939 -1945 and for the nearly ten years rationing that followed those years

I would never conform to the "nothing" beleif but I do believe people are panicking unnecessarily.

I am in the high risk category and because of this I am ensuring I follow the guidlines to reduce the possiblity of me catching it.

However, I do not believe everyone needs to lock themselves away and reduce society to being meaningless. For most folk it will just seem like a csae of the flu, which doesn't bring mass hysteria. Protecting the vulnerable is the way forward and let the rest of you get on with life.

My concern is the wait for a vaccine of some kind; I understand the "flattening the curve" idea, however if you're going to put a nation into lockdown, then they're going to have to stay there until there's a vaccine and you can begin to inoculate people against the disease. Otherwise, we're just delaying the inevitable... I just hope they develop something effective soon - people won't stay cooped up for ever.

8-[ It's catch 22 do you or don't you isolate. I believe you should but will everyone. To be honest it's a scary scenario. I found out today that my Doctor's surgery is closed because some staff and doctors came down with symptoms. I know it sounds a bit drastic but I think the armed forces medical crews got on board to ease pressure on hospitals. Like that programme Mash start erecting tents and medial units to try to eliviate some pressure. I know it sounds daft but Christ people are dropping like flies.

And as for the spaces to erect these medical units look at all the empty sports grounds with facilities that could be used. And revenue from the government to keep them operational. Might be a stupid post but I thought I would throw it out there because I personally can't see much else happening apart from throwing money at it.

Problem with vaccines is the development legislation, which if followed takes a number of years before one is adopted.
Should they bypass the legal route and take risks?

i think its been introduced on purpose to wipe out us over 70's which will solve the "care home crisis" and the pension shortfall, and they won't have to give out the free TV licences. :P

Of course there isn't!

It's probably going to cost the country 100s of billions before things are sorted, which by far outweighs some pension and care costs savings.

In addition, why are the government emphasising and supporting the isolation of the sick and vulnerable.

Can't believe people peddle such drivel.
