Encouraging signs re: controlling the spread 13:30 - Mar 31 with 557 viewsDarth_Koont

This graph seems to be one of the most relevant for spread until the antigen an antibody tests can come online.

The new cases appear to be going down or at last flattening off. New deaths can be a week later to show a similar tailing off - but shows that public awareness and responsibility (on top of government efforts) will pay off in the end.

Still need a longer period of this trend but opens up for a long-term approach of protecting the at-risk groups in isolation and relieving the lockdown soonish but knowing that it's an effective tool to stop local if not national spikes before they happen. Also suggests that the results from China's lockdown weren't as dubious as they perhaps first seemed.

The worry when you see what's going on in India is that certain countries just can't socially or economically handle these sorts of measures. A modern society and economy makes a massive difference.

Agree but India tried to lock down in a matter of hours, it was never going to be anything but chaos.

They should have given them 5 days.

Agreed. Although not sure the migrant workers were going to hang around with the lockdown coming anyway.

My point was more that long-term they can't really work from home like us or have fresh water piped to their house and only have to turn up to a well-stocked supermarket once in a while. Couple that with families living in close proximity then it's difficult to even imagine a lockdown being that manageable or effective.

The indian lockdown will probably make it worse everyone heading out of the cities in crowds, spreading it round the country.

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.
