    Given PEH short contract I'd take a swap too. We aren't in the driving seat here.

    Cheers. That's encouraging.

    These words: "The potential for false-positives (those people without the disease who test positive) to drive the increase in community (Pillar 2) cases is substantial, particularly because the accuracy of the test and the detection of viable viruses within a community setting is unclear". Science I like. Assumptions / guess work, no.

    That is encouraging. With everyone being sensible, hopefully we'll get the numbers down further. It's not all about Dorset though, the numbers are going the wrong way in certain areas.

    You confuse what I'm doing. I'm being careful, maintaining distancing where I can. I cannot, however, control what other people do. It's like driving to an extent - I take care but I can't control other how others drive, but I can't stay off the roads because someone may drive like a dick and crash into me. Covid hasn't gone anywhere. We live amongst it. Life goes on, it has to, but I don't act as if it's gone away and/or that'll I'll probably be OK if I catch it. The sad fact is that many people are complacent a) about teh chances of catching it and b) what it may do to them if they are unfortunate enough to catch it. The "few people die of it" attitude on this thread says it all.

    You normally come across as a bright fella, but appear to have lost your way on this simple issue. Complacency = ignoring distancing. Hope that helps.

    That article refers risk of dying. Covid's impact is not as binary as living or dying. It's about the effects if you don't die. A respiratory consultant explained to me the 4 possible effects of covid. 1.No symptoms, 2.mild symptoms, 3.really serious symptoms with unknown complications, 4.death. There's no middle ground between the 2nd and 3rd areas. None. Its the complications at 3 which nobody wants.or really knows.I know a previously healthy and fit 46 year old woman who has been very ill for over 4 months. She hasn't died, but is left with multitude of life impacting issues to include neurological problems and arthritis. Who knew covid could cause those problems? I suspect you didn't. The reality is that they can. Yes, there's living and dying, but there's a hell of a lot in the middle that no sane person wants to risk happening to them or someone else.
  8. I think you're right. That was 9 years or so ago now though, so things may be different now. Either way, he's a good manager and what he achieved at Bournemouth was remarkable, and he'll get opportunities.

    Chances of dying small, but I know young previously healthy people who will never be the same from it. People who are complacent aren't alive to the risks if it doesn't kill you. % wise the risks are low, granted, but having seen how 2 friends lives have been ruined, I won't join the complacent gang.
