By Cummings’s own account, several media claims about what he supposedly did in the 14 days at the end of March and in early April, were false. With his wife sick with what looked like Covid19, leaving her almost unable to care for their child, with Cummings himself likely to go down with the vir...

You clearly don't live in the world the majority do. The one where 80% of the shit wages they were already on will not pay the bills. The one where they live in shoe boxes in dense urban environments. The one where the shitty job on shitty money they were on before this lockdown will not even be th...

We aren't all terrified, but some of us live with others in a high risk category and do not feel inclined to take risks that will potentially kill them.

Looking more and more like we're just going to have to suck it up. What do you mean? Have a read through the linked article, the guy is saying it's quite possible there will be no vaccine. If that's the case then 'suck it up' = to accept an unpleasant fact or situation. So then we have the LJ scena...

Are airport arrivals any more or less likely to be covid positive than the general population? Arrivals from many (most?) countries probab...

Seems like not everyone is not effing this whole thing up. New Zealand’s transmission rate – the number of people each infected person can pass the virus to – was now under 0.4, compared to the average overseas transmission rate of 2.5. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/27/new-zealand...
