    Very highly recommended tonight's Horizon on BBC2. 
    Go watch it on iplayer. 
    Explains clearly how virus mutated, how it jumped species, why children are not impacted, how to interpret some of the numbers being reported and lots lots more.
    Brilliant programme.

    Because Germany are testing around 5x as many people as us, they identify approx 5x as many infections.

    One sad thing I learned... They asked if you have already had the disease if you have immunity. 
    The answer... For 3 months very likely, for a year probably, for longer... No one knows. 
    In other words, herd immunity could be a myth. This thing might just keep coming round again and again like flu or a cold.

    Just caught the end of it so I’ll watch the rest on catch up. Sadly it confirmed a vaccine is not likely for another 12 - 18 months.
    My brother in law is a research chemist (or something like that). He’s part of a team working on a vaccine and he’s said the same.

    If he's showing no symptoms why has he even been tested?

    Not sure the 'savings' in road related deaths will make up for losses elsewhere tbh.  
    In a typical year the average number of road deaths per year hovers around 1750 whereas its over 5000 for suicides and over 7000 for alcohol related deaths.
    Judging by some of the pictures on here, that last number alone is gonna go up the most!

    This is my take, clubs are suffering because the head of the EFL is a power hungry, bullying maniac who clearly wants to be seen to be taking on the big boys!
    The EFL should be relaxing FFP rules for a few years, withdrawing all charges and going from political battles to helping all 72 clubs through the current climate. This period in our lives is a reset button, a chance for everyone to take stock, including the world of football. 
    Clearly the EFL have the bit between their teeth with Brum, but if the clubs and fans unite, this could be the catalyst for the downfall of EFL, or certain figures at least.

    I honestly thought with everything going off in the world at the minute the EFL would take a step back and realise what is important, money and how football clubs choose to spend it (providing they have it), not being all that important.
    I've just seen the EFL have appealed for a 2nd time against the decision that Birmingham City are not guilty of breaching financial rules. Do they keep appealing until a guilty verdict is reached? With no consideration what this does to fans?
    Apart from the fact this worries me when it comes to our charge, the timing from the EFL is woeful, imagine being a Birmingham City fan, furloughed from work, worrying about family and things far more important than football, then this final little piece of bad news, people don't need it.
    The chairman of football clubs, all clubs, Derby, Boro, the lot of them, once this tails off, they need to come together and fight tooth and nail against the EFL, its time for change, for clubs to collectively agree rules that benefits the game, protects the smaller clubs and doesnt punish the bigger ones for being able to spend.

    I imagine that some usual causes of deaths would be less than the norm: car accidents, exercise related (heart attacks) etc.
    This wouldn't be a huge number I expect, but still must be lower than normal.

    Because we test so few people in this country, the best metric is deaths. 6000 people lost so far, at a 2% rate would suggest 300,000 infections. 
    But deaths lags infections by about 2 weeks. And number of infections doubles about every 3.5 days. 
    That means that without lockdown there could have been up to 4.8m infections right now. 
    With lockdown, My estimate would be around half that. Around 2m people are or have been infected so far. 
    Still a long way to get to herd immunity.

    Same as. Can't stand the man really but the absolute melts wishing him ill on social networks are utterly repugnant. Hopefully he makes a full recovery and soon. The country needs a lift right now and hopefully Johnson's recovery can provide that.

    I am no Johnson fan, but wouldn't wish Covid-19 on anyone. 
    If he pulls through and makes a full recovery I hope this will cement his resolve to really protect the NHS and ensure it thrives over the longer term.
    Fingers crossed for his partner too - is their unborn child in any danger does anyone know?
    Horrible disease. There's little anyone can do right now - only hope for the best.

    I thought it odd earlier in the Govt briefing that 4 of the first 6 press questions were about Johnson’s health. Each were trying to wheedle out a bit more information. Seems much clearer to me now that the hounds already could smell blood. Hope the guy pulls through, and doesn’t give them their ultimate front page news.

    All I can say mate is treasure the time with your family. Some of us don't get any time with our living relatives, not to mention our lost ones. Something as simple as a family meal may not sound exciting to you B4, but trust me, don't take that for granted.
    I would rather have a cooked meal around the table with my mother, grandmother, brother and a few aunts and uncles than any Derby County game or going out for a meal. 
    I guess isolation effects me differently because I live alone.
    The other thing to think of B4, how epic it will be when life gets back to normal and you get to catch up on all the fun. 
    When is your birthday B4?
