I like how they go into detail about how the placebo effect works and then say we don't know how it works.

I think you could make it up.

Please, PLEASE, before writing an article about the next tantalizing COVID-19 solution, try to find a qualified expert who has actually read the paper (or preprint, more likely), and explicitly ask them what a cautious or even skeptical view of the data would be.

I've noticed there are very few infections in the places that no one lives. Could be huge if true.

It's currently 110 I think - the larger figure is akin to 'ever admitted to ICU'.

Yeah. The Dublin figures seem to be more than just an urban density issue now.

Wonder if the Dublin figures are influenced by the large number of hospital and nursing home clusters in that region?

Most epidemiologists I know don't do infectious disease and would be embarrassed to speak about the outbreak. Then they see their uncle hypothesising on facebook. 😡

When this is over make a sunny day in Ballybunnion one of your 'must do' trips. At low tide you can walk the full 2 miles of beach up to the Cashen river and walk up the estuary to a different car park that only the locals know about.

Nailed it. A lot of the commentariat struggling to find their relevance at the moment and predictable few looking for notice.

I left England at 14, lived here most of my life since, I have Irish parents. I also spent 10 years in London in the 2000s. A lot of truth in what you've said, but I also find some Irish people go out of their way to find sleights by the English.

If there's anything good to come from , it's the complete vindication of the ideal of socialised healthcare versus the alternatives. One hopes to never need a seatbelt, but if you do it had better be built for your safety, not for profit. (1/6)

Someone should start tracking the rate of increase in different counties (county data is published every day by HSPC). Cork seems to have slowed a lot after being one of the early outbreak centres

I'm formatting pre-submission right now, and the petty rules about bold/italics/font/tabs have never seemed more out of place.
