What A Way To Go

at

This afternoon.

Leinster House, Dublin 2.

Minister for Education Norma Foley (top left) is confronted by a group of publicans from Kerry, wearing their county jerseys, who are protesting against the continued closure of Irish pubs during lockdown.

This morning, NPHET”s guidelines for so-called ‘wet pubs’ to follow were revealed:

This includes a ban on any live music or dancing. Public health experts also recommended that TV volume must be turned down low to ensure people are not forced to speak over it.

International research has shown the virus spreads more quickly among people who are raising their voices – such as those attending sporting events or in other crowded situations.

Nphet also said some pubs may need to introduce extra toilets facilities to allow for social distancing.

        does that defeat the purpose of being a Minister? ie. serving the country instead of ensuring their own re-election?

        Don’t really mind if they have cake, while i eat bread ?
        Cake or not, whatever they like to eat, they have been eatin’ plenty
        is all.

    Aren’t there some great facts coming from these ‘studies’ that are thrown out there, but never named?
    Now it’s “turn the TV volume down” because the virus spreads with raised voices. What if someone is hard of hearing? Use the ear furthest away from the nostril that’s working at that time.

    Fact is that the virus spreads from breathing. I’d better tell NPHET.

        From your first link. “These observations confirm that there is a substantial probability that normal speaking causes airborne virus transmission in confined environments.” Your second link mentions loudness, yes.
        So the question therefore is – why are the pubs opening then if there’s a substantial probability that normal speaking in confined spaces causes airborne transmission. Have you any suggestion for a scientific study for that?

          I’m not getting drawn into your nonsense.You were falsely suggesting about a lack of studies or science. You’ve been proven wrong. I have no doubt will continue to make such baseless claims and spread lies.

            If we’re still trying to flatten the curve (a strategy at least 6 months beyond it’s sell by date) then speaking in pubs should be banned. A simple nod to the barman will usually get you your regular drink anyway (assuming he still recognises from before lockdown) A circular movement of a finger pointing in the direction of a group means you want to get a round in for them.

    Nobody over 30 should wear a jersey unless they’re actually playing a match.
