Further, if there were people infected such crowds could be a quick transmission method.
Yes. The virus is highly unlikely to transmit outdoors, and the vast majority of people are fine with it. The chances of something happening are much less than if I smoked heavily, drank all day long, and eat unhealthy food. People have got this bug completely out of perspective, partly because they lack common sense and intelligence and partly because government and media have spent the last 8 weeks creating a fear factor. People need to get a grip and stop shrieking “stay home stay safe” .

I saw that headline.

Surely "99.99% of people dont have coronavirus" would have made a better headline?

What about the chances of something happening to someone else though? Obesity isn't contagious. If you drink way too much, it doesn't increase the risk of someone else getting liver disease.

Also the chance of getting the virus isn't constant with time, unless the R number = 1. That's what lockdown is all about, getting R < 1, so the chance of getting it decreases with time, until the number of new cases is zero.

Anything more than 1 results in exponential growth, i.e. an increasing chance of getting it with time, to the point where most people would eventually have had it until herd immunity starts to kick in.

But it doesn't have to be like this, countries like South Korea and Taiwan have contained their outbreaks without lockdowns.

Atfter family and friends Wrexham Football club is the most important thing in my life, but if we went into the Welsh pyramid it wouldn’t mean anything to me, it would cease to exist.

With respect foxy could it be you lacking intelligence and common sense in what you just said.

This area has got away lightly so far but in just a matter of weeks there is over700 hundred confirmed cases across Wrexham and Flintshire and over 100 of them are dead.

Considering we have been in lockdown during that time and they only test those admitted to hospital what do you reckon the numbers would be if football, shops
pubs etc were still open and nothing had of been done to stop the spread?

Posters who take this with a pinch of salt as I have just read some of the posts are playing russian roulette with people's lives. Lockdown is the only answer England in a month's time will be over run with Covid19 cases it's now all about the economy and nothing else so government in England are willing to let people die. The time will come next year to lift the lockdown as I hope will happen in Wales. Stay Home Save Lives.

Steve and Bowler - feel free to lockdown yourselves forever if it makes you feel better

Life has to go on with adaquete social distancing & precautions ,

Catching Covid will be another one of the multitude of calculated risks we take every day

Accept your own mortality but dont let it stop you from Living
