Boris says we can go out for walks, run or any outdoor exercise but doesn't specify how long we can do these things for. What if I'm out for a 2 hr walk and i end up getting arrested or fined by the Police?

Where? He said we can't go outdoors unless if we're getting essentials like food and medicine, so we can't go out to meet friends and relatives, otherwise you get fined £30 by the police Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Thread - Page 2 1076326320

Putting the UK on lockdown was the smart play, and honestly should have happened a lot sooner. I just hope that people won't get too irritaited by all the time they'll be spending in their houses with nothing much to do (Luckily I'm using all the days I have indoors to write a novel + I have SW debating and usually spend most of my time inside anyway).

You have to understand the unbelievable power of media to create narratives and thereby drive public opinion. A human being perceives the world through his senses - most notably his sense of sight and hearing. This is how our brain is adapted to receive and process information. That which is in front of a man's eyes is seen, that which enters his ears is heard. Both are apprehended by the brain. Both become part of the man's mental picture of reality. How could they not? His eyes see and his ears hear. He knows nothing of reality except that which his senses confirm to him.

So media, particularly modern audio-visual media, is essentially able to create false pictures of reality in peoples' minds by presenting them carefully curated images and sounds. For example, if you simply show someone a video of a sick person on a ventilator, your brain processes it plainly: this is a sick person on a ventilator. But if you combine that video with breathless, dramatic reporting about a killer virus and studies showing millions of imminent deaths and talking heads bloviating about the collapse of the medical system, suddenly your mental picture of reality changes. The sick person on a ventilator is not just one person. It's a terrifying harbinger of impending doom.

The media is particularly adept at pushing agendas by capitalizing on fear and using that fear to create hysteria. Humans are prone to hysteria because we are social creatures and are highly sensitive to the mood and temperaments of those around us. Fear is contagious. We can feel it when others are afraid, and we become afraid or at least concerned ourselves. And there is no greater fear than the fear of death. In the wake of 9/11 and the run-up the Iraq War the media was pushing all kinds of fear-porn about how large-scale terrorist attacks were the new normal in America, and that it was just a matter of time until we were hit with weapons of mass destruction by terrorists. People were scared, and that played a huge part in enabling the War on Terror and the disastrous wars in the Middle East which have been dragging on for almost 20 years now.

This Coronavirus hysteria is being used in much the same way. The government and media are telling people they need to be afraid for their lives and the lives of others, and that if they don't surrender their liberties the virus is going to kill millions of people. It's pure fear-mongering, and it is intentional. Fear eliminates rational thinking. They don't want people thinking. They want them obeying out of fear. The same country that lionized one of its Presidents for saying, "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself," is now encouraging its citizens to cower inside their homes and willingly accept the destruction of the economy in fear of a virus with a survival rate of over 99%,  and even based of recent information (predicted case totals as oppose to confirmed cases) 99.9%. 

We are not the same people we once were. I speak as someone born in the US, both literally and spiritually.  Our industries and technologies have become stronger but not at no expense.  We are spiritually weak and materially wealthy. We have grown soft. We fear death more than we love liberty. We have become disconnected from actual reality in favor of a pseudo-reality presented to us through various media channels. Essentially, we have lost all of our grounding. We have no stable frame of reference by which to judge truth. And so what we regard is true is whatever we see on television or whatever our chosen "influencers" push us on social media. Like a tumbleweed, we blow wherever the wind takes us at the time. Like a tumbleweed, rootless, dessicated and destined for the fire.

Ziggy can you cite your sources for the 99.9% survival rate?  I’ve not seen that number purported anywhere.

@DarthSkywalker0 I'm assuming that he's referring to this:



In the U.S., it's likely that the case fatality rate from coronavirus will end up somewhere between 0.5% and 1%, once a broad cross-section of the population has been tested, Lawrence says.


Which then says:

But that's no reason for the nation to relax, he adds.
"To put it into perspective, that's 5 to 10 times more fatal than flu," Lawrence says, a disease that kills between 12,000 and 61,000 people a year.

Source is from the NPR. You can read the whole thing here: https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2020/03/27/821958435/why-death-rates-from-coronavirus-can-be-deceiving?t=1585504788819

Other sources: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51674743

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-death-rate/

Note that the WHO figure was made in early March. Since then, the virus has apparently mutated and formed new strains. The reason for the media panic over it is because it's incredibly easy to transmit and there's a fear that it could become deadly if it mutates further, especially because of the risk it poses to the elderly, newborns and those with underlying health conditions. That's not even to mention that not enough tests are being performed to confirm whether a victim could be carrying it and not realise it, then passing it on to someone else.

That number is not 0.1%, so his figure is still off by a factor of 5. Also, don’t worry BOD I’m pouring like 4 hours a day into Corona research. You are wrong about mutation though, I assume you are referring to the two strains. That wasn’t not post March, we just found out about it later. That being said, vast majority of mutations are innocuous.

The 0.1% figure is an extrapolation based on the total numbers of peopel that contract the virus without developing the symptoms or just develop very light symptons and don't report themselves to the medical authorities. Here, in my country, there was a study saying based on these circunstances, the lethality rate of Covid-19 should be around 0.1-0.3% - the victims being mainly those with previous health problems.

So, in a sense, Covid-19 is not at all dissimilar than the good, old influenza.

You are pretending that the 0.5% figure provided isn’t an extrapolation lol. No epidemiologist I’ve seen has estimated such a low figure. Also, lol COVID is way more infectious then Flu. Indeed look at the data of Wuhan when they attempted to account for those variables:
