BTW the Korean epidemic was initiated by some happy-clappy evangelical church group, a number of whom had just returned from a bible study meet-up thing in of all places.............. Wuhan! The majority of the Korean epidemic cases can be traced back to these people. God obviously doesn't look after his own.
I have just trawled the news reports and they say that the South Korean second wave was caused by partygoers in a nightclub district over a May holiday weekend but that it was kept quiet for fear of antagonising the LBGTQ groups as it was a party district specifically for their community.
There again the news reports from Metro, Express, Mirror etc also say it was caused by the employees of travelling sales company, a factory cluster, the members of a table tennis club and "crammed schools and karaoke rooms", in fact everyone but a "happy clappy evangelical church group".
That's how reliable (Not) the media currently is. Unless you meant North Korea, of course, from which the news, of course, is totally reliable! Be careful what you believe, my friend, and who you accuse. Also, in South Korea, do they test for Coronavirus such as that which exists in a cold, or can they tell actually test for Covid-19?
On tests, and staying with the theme of this thread, someone I know who was tested positive twice with the NHS test for Coronavirus with a (not dry) cough and cold (no temperature) - i.e. a cold - has just taken a third test which was negative for coronavirus (because that's all the NHS test can test for - it cant say if you have Covid-19, only if you have a Coronavirus). He was told he HAD to take the test by the NHS as he was a temporary worker for them - only to find out afterwards it is a Voluntary test. He was lied to by the NHS.
He never had Covid-19, never had any symptoms of Covid-19, and was not a "victim of the coronavirus pandemic" (He had a normal, seasonal cold), but will be recorded in UK figures as "Having had coronavirus" as if he DID have Covid-19 as a result of this pandemic and is a risk to us all. His record will probably be used, like many others like him, to scare the wits out of the rest of us.
He also had to self isolate for no good reason and worse of all is now on a Track and Trace government register for eight years which means he is on the government radar and should he come in contact with any other person who also has had a previous positive test result, if they exhibit (cold) symptoms, he can be made to stop work at any point. He feels like a sex offender and that his freedom has been taken. His crimes? He had a cold, and was tested.
That's not Lizards, flat earths, or David Ickes, nor is it media reports - that's REAL LIFE in Kent, folks, July 2020. Something is not right. That's why all the media reports are all over the place, the rules about do this here but not there are all over the place, why there's no common global approach or solution or clarity on anything about this pandemic. Even those who believe its going to kill us all, we need lockdown everywhere and PPE for all cant agree on the facts.
As we all know, and have done at least once in our lives, maybe as a kid, maybe as an adult, when you tell a little porky or exaggerate about something and get caught out, but find you have got to keep it going, suddenly you have to keep building a web of even more and more crazier and weirder and ever more contradictory lies around it over time to protect the original lie.......and then it just turns into one big super confused mess. Sound familiar?
Ok that's enough. Time for me to set sail to for the edge of flat earth with my friend the Troll from under the bridge to meet the little green men from Roswell to show me the set of the Apollo 11 faked moon landing mission and shake hands with JFK and Elvis who faked their own deaths to live in Atlantis.
Because according to others on this forum if I am telling the truth about the first 8 paragraphs I have to be someone who believes everything in this ninth paragraph, as opposed to just being someone with a pair of eyes and a brain who doesn't believe everything he sees and hears in the media, but goes by what he sees going on around him, and the day to day experiences of his friends and family - i.e. in real life.
How many people do you know in your families and social circles who have actually, truly, identifiably, unquestionably died as direct result of an assault on their immune system by the truly dreadful disease known as Covid-19, not from any other pre-existing cause, or were going to pass away anyway, or simple had a "normal" (cold) coronavirus? I arrest my case, your honour.
Lets get back to football.
Of course if the global spread of the very real and very deadly disease called Covid-19 is truly as bad as the hype, there should never be any football ever again, but lets park that and believe we will see the black and amber again in this strange nether world between "its a deadly serious pandemic" and "lets open the pubs" and "stay 2m away and don't hug me" and let 22 premiership footballers be all over each other and "not being allowed to enter your doctors surgery or your vets with your dying cat, but OK to buy a pair of shoes in a shoe shop and so on and so on and so on.
I did wonder what the Government's ulterior motive was in 'allowing' the story to be released today which said that approx. 78% of those who test positive have no symptoms of Covid-19 on the day of the test. Now I realise its because they're worried about the truth coming out.
So, thanks for clearing that up.
By the way you might want to check out the definition of "initiated" before trying to rubbish someone's retelling of the reported start of South Korea's epidemic. But, there again, you might not as it doesn't appear to fit your view of the world.
