Oh that's not bad at all, might save me from having to translate this quote:
"Diese Zeitung ist ein Organ der Niedertracht. Es ist falsch, sie zu lesen. Jemand, der zu dieser Zeitung beiträgt, ist gesellschaftlich absolut inakzeptabel. Es wäre verfehlt, zu einem ihrer Redakteure freundlich oder auch nur höflich zu sein. Man muss so unfreundlich zu ihnen sein, wie es das Gesetz gerade noch zulässt. Es sind schlechte Menschen, die Falsches tun." - Max Goldt über die Bildzeitung
This is German author Max Goldt about the German 'Bild', but it's 100% applicable to the Daily Mail too...
Of course they are, see above. Same for their pic of four and a half people enjoying the sunshine somewhere in Cambridge: let's take a picture with a telelens and then pretend everybody was super close together.
(Btw remind me, do you speak / understand German?)
Fuck the Daily Mail, scum of the earth.
Btw, Switzerland is starting to ask the people who did civilian service (instead of military service, it's compulsory to do one or the other unless you're declared 'not suitable' for medical or psychological reasons) on a voluntary basis to sign up for 2-week-long extra deployments - presumably to help out in hospitals and care homes.
The data that was based on was a bit weird anyway...
How exactly do they know this was the moment the other people were infected? How on earth did they arrive at the "infected 30min after initial carrier disembarked" duration? It all sounds a bit dubious, apart from the obvious question of why people right next to the 'patient 0' in this scenario were not infected.
Would this ever become a method that someone like a hospital would use - having a room full of printers spitting out 'NICE approved' prints?
Not as standard practice, no - definitely not worth it vs just having even a small manufacturing plant that actually specialises in this.
And instead of having a room full of printers ready to print stuff in the case of a pandemic emergency such as this one, it'd be cheaper to have such a manufacturing plant in the UK, and to have the room full of actual PPE.
But as we don't have this currently, crowdsourcing stuff from people's and institutions' private 3D printer is obviously a good way to go, better than just not having it.
or at least put out some stark warnings out particularly focused on gatherings
Sure. The thing is though, those are already illegal now. But no law will have an impact if there is almost no enforcement.
But I agree with regards to 'need to be seen to do something'. Cynical, but probably very correct.
Yeah exactly, I'm not surprised that he's looking genuinely dishevelled for once.
Chances are more one of the following:
1, Someone trolling a mate
2, French police posting in the hope it generates paranoia in people and they stop
Totally agreed. Or 3, the person who tweeted it did it themselves to get some clicks.
