  1. Yet you accuse everyone who disagrees with you of being a troll. The lack of self awareness is impressive.
  2. I'm not trying to act smart I'm trying to educate you on really basic principles. The R number is variables, that's literally the whole thing, it's a bunch of variables and some backward calculations. You can't find an R rate in DNA. If we change variables the whole model changes, you can't re-calculate an R number using two points of information and it's laughable that you're attempting to do so.
  3. There isn't a natural R rate though, that's the thing. The R rate already takes factors into consideration, it's a maths solution not a biological constant. The R rate for the Kent variant was 4 in England, with our population and our million other variables.
  4. I've always taken herd immunity to mean a limit to how quickly/far the virus will spread, rather than meaning no-one will get it and it will die out, not sure if that's the general understanding
  5. Not sure that's how it works. From wikipedia: " is not a biological constant for a pathogen as it is also affected by other factors such as environmental conditions and the behaviour of the infected population. values are usually estimated from mathematical models, and the estimated values are dependent on the model used and values of other parameters. Thus values given in the literature only make sense in the given context and it is recommended not to use obsolete values or compare values based on different models.[25] } does not by itself give an estimate of how fast an infection spr
  6. Rage had a Glastonbury gap last time too.
  7. Are the residency requirements for Germany really more arduous than Australia?
  8. We're going off topic here but we have a permanent seat on the UN security council, we're a member of the G7 and NATO, we're the 6th largest economy in the world. Let's not pretend we're an irrelevance on the world stage.
  9. Imagine being shown that a year ago
  10. That really does sound like the worst thing, awful, God forbid someone should spend on those things
  11. Yeah, I'm not going to be a knob about it, but there has to be an end, this doom talk of years and years of lockdowns can't happen. Hopefully vaccines and drugs will sort us out (and that seems the most likely outcome at this point). However, at some point we draw a line in the sand and move on to plan B though.
