  1. You’re on the wind up aren’t you. I get it now. nice one. on ignore.
  2. You said there were 4000 cases that could be trebled. that would mean there were 12000 active cases of a virus in a city of 500000 - so circa 1/45.
  3. But you have to factor behaviour in. people won’t bother to go to places as a consequence. so it will have a massive impact on the economy. I won’t not wear a mask in certain shops - I won’t go there in the first place - because I might as well sit in my house and buy whatever I need from there - rather than walk round a shop wearing a face mask.
  4. The point being I won’t bother to go!! not go and not wear a mask. bye bye non essential shop.
  5. You’re literally saying there is a 1/45 proportion of infection in this city - in a country with a 1/4000 infection rate. and we’re all just carrying on. That would probably mean about 30 people on my street currently had it. and you’re telling me I don’t understand. Give over.
  6. You really need to understand the difference between recorded cases and current cases it would make you feel a lot better. we would have more cases than Leicester based on your figures.
  7. What are you on about - they’re requisite in any shop.
  8. Jesus wept. ill wear one when I go supermarket to buy food and essentials because we need them and that’s what I’m now legally required to do. Why would I do it to go to a non essential shop?
  9. I think people won’t be arsed. why do I want to walk around a clothes shop with my family all wearing a mask looking like we’re in Chernobyl, when we can just order online. I’ll have to wear one going the local Sainsbury’s - the same Sainsbury’s where I’ve walked in for the last 3 months without getting coronavirus in a city of half a million where about 70 people have it currently. I won’t bother going in any other non essential shops though- the ones we finally reopened just a few weeks ago. what’s point?
  10. Not enough people will go the shops mate - other than for essentials. We’re decimating our economy.
  11. They’re not being asked to. theyll be out of a job in a few months though so won’t have to worry.
  12. There you go - I’m glad I don’t own a small business.
  13. Do you have to wear them in pubs and restaurants aswell?
  14. Thanks. i can recommend the raven at Walkley - well organised table service, leave your contact name and number.
  15. I can’t talk for every shop - but everyone I have been in since the easing of lockdown has implemented control measures of some sort. i can’t say I’ve ever had an issue in a shop where I’ve felt I couldn’t distance if I wanted to.
  16. “Non-medical, fabric masks are being used by many people in public areas, but there has been limited evidence on their effectiveness and WHO does not recommend their widespread use among the public for control of COVID-19. However, for areas of widespread transmission, with limited capacity for implementing control measures and especially in settings where physical distancing of at least 1 metre is not possible – such as on public transport, in shops or in other confined or crowded environments – WHO advises governments to encourage the general public to use non-medical fabric masks.” the above is the actual wording which adds a number of qualifications. I’ll continue to follow the current government guidelines which appear to me to be in line with the WHO’s current advice. if you want to do more than that to feel safe then you’re free to do so - don’t start calling people fools and accuse them of curtailing your freedom if they just follow the guidance given though.
  17. Literally quoting the WHO who says there isn’t sufficient evidence and then saying it’s evidence.
  18. The strategy seems to be let England make a decision - slam it as reckless - then do the same a week later.
  19. Yes. There’s nothing in there that supports mandatory use of face coverings in places such as Sheffield. You thought there was - but there isn’t. it might do one day - but not now. its not Brenda off twitter saying that either - its the WHO you seem happy to rely on. unless they’re fools curtailing your freedom also.
  20. No not Brenda from twitter - the WHO - who also aren’t on your side; https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/question-and-answers-hub/q-a-detail/q-a-on-covid-19-and-masks Note from WHO website (link above) the following “For countries that are considering the use of masks, WHO advises decision-makers to apply a risk-based approach to decide where, when and what type of masks should be used. “ “At the present time, the widespread use of masks everywhere is not supported by high-quality scientific evidence, and there are potential benefits and harms to consider”. “Non-medical or fabric masks could increase potential for COVID-19 to infect a person if the mask is contaminated by dirty hands and touched often, or kept on other parts of the face or head and then placed back over the mouth and nose” Note that nothing suggests mandatory face coverings in public places.. And if you use July 10th and July 3rd then deaths are a third of what they were the week prior. you need to read the rolling averages in the links you’ve quoted - both of which clearly show that deaths and cases continue to fall.
  21. Funny - cos a lot of people disagree with you - but we can’t both be wrong can we?
  22. Oh - so because some others disagree that makes me wrong? weird logic. Contrary to some views I think forcing people to wear masks isn’t necessary in most scenarios. And is also a pretty grim prospect for us all as well. theres plenty of information you can read if you want to see the opposing argument for it. You only have to google it. It’s interesting that the mere suggestion of disagreeing with an approach immediately led you to call me a fool, that I was curtailing your liberty, affecting your life and needing to look in the mirror. that attitude is far more worrying, and dangerous, than coronavirus.
