......We did not drive back to Germany for fear of jumping from the frying pan into the fire ……
How are they getting infected if everyone is indoors and has been for 18 days?
Yes, Germany is doing a lot better and is something I still don't understand. Why is Belgium doing better than Netherlands and they are neighbours.
Same with some other EU countries.
And thats looking at death rates not infected as infected rates could be that they test more or test less.
I see Spain still has an exponential growth which should have become linear by now.
I guess that the continue of infections are the essential workers spreading it. Health and other workers.
But I get you, if so, why can they still spread it?
Just some reasoning and absolutely no idea if it is indeed the case.
The average is apparently 5 days but can be 14 days.
Person 1 get infected day 1. Show symptoms after 10 days and go to hospital. Test positive and infect person 2
Person 2 got infected and now take 10 days to show symptoms and go to GP/hospital and infect Person 3
Person 3 got infected and now take 10 days to show symptoms and go.....
(some of these are health workers and or staff at a pharmacy and carry the virus home to family, etc, etc)
Therefore it takes longer than 3 weeks to stop the spread of the virus. It took 3 months in China with their serious lockdown and citizens who are more prone to be disciplined than some westerners.
I therefore do not believe the 3 week lockdown in SA will be just 3 weeks. It will be longer. Same for other countries.
There is no lockdown in Ireland which I believe is a dumb move. Government should put it in place ASAP.
Don't believe what I post, research what I post....
They have a book on how to take my money away? When did this happen......
