  1. I wouldn't bother. I'll be taking a drive up to Buxton tomorrow morning though.
  2. Looks to have started settling on the fields above 250 metres ish though.
  3. Was looking about Michael earlier. If you go into Street View via Google Earth (not Maps) at Mexico Beach in Florida, all the imagery was taken in Oct 2018 immediately after the hurricane.
  4. If you look carefully at the direction of the current showers, they actually seem to be rotating about a centre somewhere over Lincoln way.
  5. From what I've read, WWII was all about Germany wanting to open up its border with France.
  6. This says to me that there are a good 10,000 undetected cases in the lower age cohorts. Probably need to double the number of cases at least
  7. Actually.... Express Bingo EXPRESSBINGO.ORG.UK The Daily Express front page recycles the same dozen themes – and sometimes the same stories – over and over. Track them here.
  8. Christ things must be bad if The Express has switched from feear mongering to false hope!
  9. I'm sad to say that people aren't getting it when they say that we could end up like Italy if we aren't careful. Even if we assume that tens of thousands are infected in Lombardy, that is still less than 1% of the population. Assuming that it can't be contained, as everyone seems to think, then the virus will only die off when many tens of percent of the population have become infected (say 40 to 80%). Unless we want to go into full lock down mode for the next 12 to 18 months while a vaccine is sorted, we can pretty much guarantee that something far worse than Italy is already inevitable.
  10. That may well include people in the incubation period.
  11. Absolutely brutally correct. The only way to control it is for about 40 to 80% of the population to have been infected (I have a model). That's 25 to 50 million people: 2.5 to 5 million needing hospital treatment over the course of a few months. Feeling pretty bleak TBH.
  12. Or that Italy has missed an awful lot of cases. A lot of the European cases seem to have stemmed from Italy, suggesting both that they should be the same strain, and that there are a hell of a lot of Italians infected for travellers to catch it off. I hope so anyway.
