But in an apparent change of messaging, official government Twitter accounts have dropped the stark slogan "stay home, save lives" and begun broadcasting the messages "stay safe, save lives".

yes, it's starting to look like Neil Ferguson's predictions of half a million dead through covid as reason for the lockdown might not have been very accurate, actually 250ish  (under the age of 60 with no pre-existing conditions) as it turned out.

This is the solution to global warming, hopefully it is just a warm-up and the world will soon become communist :D

"Neil Ferguson’s team said 200million people might die from bird flu — just 292 died. They said there could be 65,000 deaths from swine flu — there were 457. We really must stop treating scientists as gods. They often get it wrong," says Brendan O’Neill

- NEW STUDY: 1.4 MILLION are expected to die globally from tuberculosis due to lockdown delaying needed care.

- OLDER STUDY: economic downturn (of 2008) linked with at least 260K excess global cancer deaths.

https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/press-releases/economic-downturn-excess-cancer-deaths-atun/

And of course don't forget all the serious illness going undetected during lockdown as hospitals run at 50% capacity.

Reminder: Just 270 people under the age of 60 with no pre-existing conditions have died from covid in the UK.

most of the data in the thread is either from the NHS or the ONS, both are govt controlled. You say you took all of 3 minutes on the entire thread so not enough time taken to open even a single link. carry on clapping.

having bottled the initial (and correct) herd immunity response and instead ordering this disastrous lockdown policy the govt now needs to save faced and pretend it was right all along meaning the pubs will stay closed til the autumn.

But the issue is that people would have died unnecessarily because the NHS couldn't cope with an influx, even if it was just thousands/tens of thousands :(

Listening to clowns like Ferguson and ignoring real data from other Asian countries such as Taiwan, South Korea and Japan was the problem. Sweden got it right, no lockdown, no destruction of the economy and no collapse of the health service. And still less deaths per million than the UK, latest data May 7th see below.

    • Hi  For those interested in the Video Gaming industry we recently interviewed the product manager for VanEck Video Gaming & Esports ETF to talk about how the industry will perform as lockdown measures start to ease and what is fueling future growth https://blubrry.com/igtradingthemarkets/74972956/how-investors-can-profit-from-the-growing-video-gaming-and-esports-industry/   Are there any other exciting sectors you would like to see covered on the podcast by an industry expert?
    • Yes I am aware that I have selected the guaranteed stop level as I have been for a while in preparation for when the live account is approved, the live account will have to use a guaranteed stop on each trade, which I think is a good idea as it reduces exposure to risk and the margin required as it is a controlled risk as apposed to an uncapped or un controlled risk. Normally the stop limit on this trade is a minimum of 8 points, in this screen shot it it is set at 30 points which has increased the required margin to $1775, when it is at 8 or 10 the margin would be around $1300. If I set the stop to 139 points the margin will increase to $17,000 or more, obviously blocking the trade with a $10,000 account fund. Thank you for your suggestion,  however it isn't because I have selected a guaranteed stop as I normally do. having given this some thought, I guess if there is excessive price volatility / uncertainty, as there is when the price is at 1.39000 the system sets the GSL very high for protection, the price could easily run away, that being said if it was hit at 139 it would lead to a massive loss, maybe $7000.  
    • Hi guys.  Wanted to thank you guys for viewing my posts and hope you have found it helpful . If anyone has any feedback as to how I can improve them to provide more help please shoot them here.   God Bless CA
