Quarantine over; Lockdown? What lockdown? 1 Week, 5 Days ago  
Went out to collect Baby Car (clutch went some weeks ago) to celebrate my quarantine (coming back from France) over and to take my hour of exercise/food/medicine - amazed by how normal life is in London. About 9 out of 10 shops open (several "faking it" - i.e. Daunt Books - buy at door... Lidgates - only 3 customers at a time, long queue outside; cafe's and restaurants (tables and chairs outside)...

Astonished. Clearly the JK opinion from 9 months ago has finally dawned on the great majority. This is a trivial virus for 85% of people. Be sensible (as with colds and Flu). Ignore the media hysteria and figures and the bollocks by "experts" and stupid rules by governments. Common sense rools OK? Test and trace is rubbish unless started the moment the virus tries to get in; otherwise it is here; live with it; hope for a vaccine. Testing & Tracing after it's here is stupid and a huge waste of money better spent on protecting and treating the vulnerable. Government say "that's so hard to do". Rubbish. Easier and far less damaging than "Test & Trace".

The majority have realised that YES - by killing everyone, the R rate would drop. STUPID!
That if we were all "tested" for the common cold or Flu or a dozen other communicable bugs, we'd all be isolating every minute.
Over reaction to media over hype.

I think media should be banned from these stupid pieces lying about Covid 19 and the dangers thereof.

It is dangerous if you're over 60 or vulnerable (overweight, ill, smokers etc).

It is trivial if you belong to 85% of humanity. So stop behaving as though it's Ebola, politicians.

I see you've reduced it to "a trivial virus for 85% of people" ?

Yes personally I've found Long Tail quite tricky to cope with so I think some of the consequences of having it mildly can be less trivial than at first thought.

Correct, because it's killed a lot more than Ebola.

Largely because Ebola wasn't nearly as contagious.

The point is clearly that ebola has a death rate of up to 90% and C19 currently 0% (that doesn't mean 0 people) in most places.

Yes C19 is highly contagious but highly unlikely to kill you.

The media behave as if it is.

Yep. If they had stuck to the basic advice (wash your hands, isolate if you have symptoms, stay away from at risk relatives) things would have gone a lot better. They could have simply paid wages for a two week period where a person was in isolation. For sure it would have cost a lot less.
