    would be interesting to know if it was the S or L strain? or both?

    I find your ‘angry for no reason’ perspective most refreshing. It’s just what the internet is lacking these days.

      Some sense being made on Prime Time tonight.
      The 15 minute rubbish of having to be in the company of an infected person thoroughly discounted (as we knew, but was being pushed by Holohan, Harris and company ). Worth looking back on the player.

    being in containment phase would mean there’s containment measures taken. which there is not. there’s a desk at the airport with two plebs in hi-viz jackets handing out flyers.

    Most cases have come from Northern italy, yet there’s no travel restrictions between the two. 1500 Italians are coming to Dublin this weekend. We have done NOTHING, to contain this. The usual FG work practise of “do nothing and lie about it later” obviously doesn’t work.

    Once again, people will die because of how FG operate.
