    so it was present in the community – left to own devices for months without any lockdown, any social distancing

    and the sky didn’t fall in?

    hmm

      In fairness BB the sky probably fell in on the families of those who later died on account of this early spread (before the days of testing and daily death totals)

        And that’d be before awareness of it and the consequences of it.

        WHO were still saying it, covid, had not moved to humans on Jan 14th.

      Hmmmm.. in Sweden c.3% of deaths (100 people) are aged 50-60, under that is negligible.. even aged 60-70 accounts for c.8% of deaths. It’s a plague on people over aged 80. I’m not saying we weren’t right to close down till we got to grips with this new bug.. 50% of people in Ireland who end up in ICU have serious heart conditions.. we should maybe start to re-access who should be cocooning..

    Interesting the amount of people recalling that they or someone they new had severe flu-like symptoms around December/January in that Gavin O’Reilly Twitter thread . I remember that also happening to me just after Christmas. Included a severe sore throat. Don’t generally suffer from flu. About 15 years since I had something that bad.
