Loads of evidence of people being tested clear and the positive after. It’s a deep lung infection, so nasal swabs not reliable.

im not on here spouting for a laugh. I’ve read so much on this over the last couple of months...obsessively some might say.

Same! We should all take medical exams, speciality, viruses, at the end of all this!

Yeah many young people are asymptomatic which is the issue and the whole reason for social distancing. If you're having any symptoms at all you may have it and be spreading it. 

It sucks to call in sick or work from home when you dont really know... but if you're questioning it and have some of the correct symptoms, theres a good chance it could be it.

If you've been in contact with other people who have it... I would say 100% you have it. 

And don't go to the pub either.

Head of French public health authority says half of patients in intensive care with coronavirus in France are under 60 yrs old.

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/france/
 
They have 300 people in a critical condition at the moment, so if half are under 60 that’s 150 of 4500 active cases

theres a lot of at risk groups who would normally attend, lots of long standing festival goers who now wont be able to go even if it did happen. i imagine and welcome stand corrected, particuarly helping out or behind the scenes working? that would be a pressure situation to make the decision to run with the festival as planned or not even if it wasnt forced to cancel. i wouldnt like to be the person to make that call.

 would  paul and diana even want to be there?

Nearly two weeks after @stuartbert two hats started this, can we reset the poll and all vote again? Theres no way nearly 50% of people think this is defo or probably going ahead now.

It’s closer to 75% in favour of it going ahead. 
 

I’ve just had another gif idea 🤔

Writing from Spain, we all cannot leave home unless is for food or medicines. Cases are out of control. What kind of strategy UK is following? You guys and your health system will be collapsed in a few weeks... 

We’re significantly behind you in terms of number of cases so no point taken the more drastic measures too soon as they can only be maintained for so long.

These measures are coming soon though, we will inevitably get to your numbers, albeit based on current data it will take us longer to get there.

But why not taking actions now you still have some time? Why making the same mistakes than Italy and Spain?

If we lock down now then our country falls apart. 
 

We’re spreading the curve and not getting the big hit other countries are having. It’s a risky strategy and only time will tell if it plays off.

Nope. Diana has already postponed her US shows. 

For most of the bands, when you take out the countries they can't play - Spain, France, Germany, Italy etc - a tour just isn't financially viable.

So even if the festival somehow goes ahead there won't be enough bands around to play it.

Because such actions are not sustainable, plus we caught it earlier here so have been able to control at the earlier stage for much longer. Also being an island has no doubt helped us to a extent. Putting the country into lockdown when we only had a couple of hundred cases would’ve been futile and simply delaying the inevitable.

Can’t see it happening at all now, and that’s the opinion of everyone who doesn’t frequent this forum who I’ve spoken to.

This forum is a lot more positive about Glasto taking place than the general population and you’ve got to think it’s probably because the people using this website are the people who love the festival the most, so are henceforth the least likely to want to accept that it’s going to get cancelled.

fuck me, things must be bad - that article isn't pay-walled. ;) 

There was a similar piece on The Athletic linked in the football side - when that whole thing is a premium rate sports site, no paywall article was a shock. Especially as when I clicked on it, I was expecting the usual thing of 2 paragraphs then a "Click here to begin your 30 day free trial" kinda thing.

Can people stop posting alarmist bollocks that isn't based on any certain knowledge like 'your healthcare system is going to collapse' or 'if you know someone who has it and you show symptoms, then you have 100% have it'? People are panicking and posting stuff like this is pouring fuel onto the fire for those that are stressed out by the whole situation.
