    Sweden has about 25,000 cases so far, with about 3,000 deaths. From a population of about 10 million, their situation is not going to be seen as reasonable. By any measure.

    Oh you missed Michael Healy-Rae here in Ireland yesterday questioning our deputy leader on why pubs serving food are allowed to re-open and those that don’t serve food are not. This is leading to quiet rural pubs getting categorised with nightclubs in the cities.
    (The Healy-Rae’s are a bit like Donald Trump – they top the polls in Kerry but get ridiculed by the ‘intelligentsia’ in the rest of the country).

    It went along the lines: “Because, can I ask you this question Tánaiste (Deputy Leader), and on the record I would like for you to explain to me this: What is the difference between a person inside in a public house with a pint of Guinness in this hand and a toasted cheese sandwich in this hand and a person inside in another pub with a pint of Guinness and no toasted cheese sandwich?

    “Could you please give me the medical – you are a doctor – could you please explain to me why that poses a public health danger to that person drinking that pint and eating that sandwich or not?”

    Needless to say he didn’t get a straight answer to that particular question!

    But he brightened my day no end!

    Japan did not lock down and the infection rates and and mortality rates are 1% most Western European and North American nations. I will grant islands and island nations do well in this regard but what lessons could have been learned from these places.

    Interesting study from Prof. Gupta at Oxford that shows how herd immunity can occur at low levels of seroprevalence. The answer lies in the body’s T-cells, which give many people an effective first line of defence against coronaviruses. Antibodies or vaccines are not necessary!
