It is a worrying time for many American cities in particular.

Fake but funny.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Especially with the 14 day (ish) incubation, rather than a couple of days.

How will Trump blame someone else for a second spike, well he will say I wanted to control coming off lockdown, but, the states insisted they wanted control of it. He has already played the not my fault card.

At some point they will just stop releasing the figures or do a China and just make them up

Or blame it on people not paying for decent insurance so it is their own fault

I believe many Americans’ insurance is tied in with their employment.

Seen the number of unemployed now?

China doesn't just make them up, they have a committee meeting, pass the thoughts of the meeting to the 'government' and then get told what the figures are based on the figures they were given but adjusted for the 'truth'. It's a complicated process.

Would you ever place any trust in any information coming out of china?

He will just re-write history and the sheep will let him away with it. He's already done it based on his actions so far. 

We are seeing it with a poster or two on here who have little interest in questioning anything happening as it is their 'team'. 

I genuinely find it scary when people have 'teams' in politics. Blind loyalty is for silly things like sport, not our lives.

Good post Dave. I like the comparison to sport too because its something that I have kept thinking over the last week. I find the blind worshipping of any political party, with a fervour in excess of any sports team, quite frankly bizarre and it is indeed scary. Even with sport most rational people can see the failings of their own team, and I know you and I have disagreed in the past *cough salary cap cough*, but at least we generally see each others point of view and find some common ground.

If they caught Trump red handed his supporters would claim it’s stigmata.

Sorry bit political so move if too much

Since asking the question at Downing St press conf, five companies offering PPE have emailed me saying they haven’t had any luck getting responses from officials - will now pass them on as invited to by Gavin Williamson - though wondering who to....

Interesting news regarding plasma trials:

The UK is gearing up to use the blood of coronavirus survivors to treat people who are ill in hospital with the disease.

NHS Blood and Transplant has started approaching some people who have recovered from Covid-19 to donate their blood so they can begin a trial to assess the treatment.

The hope is that the antibodies they have built up will help to clear the virus in others.

Scientists have welcomed the plan - and University Hospital of Wales has already announced a trial.

But some researchers have warned the UK has moved too slowly compared with other countries.

In the US, a national plasma project - involving 1,500 hospitals - has already started. Scientists still need to assess how effective the therapy is.

But with no current treatments for Covid-19, the hope is it could help until a vaccine is found.

Come on. Please play nicely and do your political posting on the political threads. It’s a right ball ache moving them on my phone and I’m not logging into my computer today. 

It’s far easier to delete them. And I may just start doing that. 

There are people who want to keep up with this subject without the political stuff, or even the endless tribalism of the rugby threads. Just think of the innocents.
