EFL green light spectators this weekend


Recommended Posts

A few will die on Owlstalk and a good few more will have loved ones who do/have then we’ll see how everyone feels....

 

Others will have it/have had it and some will survive with horrific long term consequences.

 

It’s all a big hoax though because it is in everyones interest to crash economies across the world for a hoax.

Club confirmed to me that anyone who has a multi year season ticket has priority over season ticket holders.  I'm wondering how many there are and if that leaves one year season ticket holders with not much chance.  I'm guessing there are alot of multi year season ticket holders

You've highlighted two things we keep seeing. Due to some of the vagaries of the figures, particularly where they relate to youth and general health, a lot are taking that very modern stance of "well, I'm probably alright, so sod everyone else".

 

But it's that last sentence that really begs a key question. For those who don't believe the official story of a pandemic, I'm yet to see a cogent explanation of what the motive might be.

The test is unreliable for this current situation. I disagree with you. 

But it isn't about agreement or disagreement, it's about fact.

The scientific fact is that the primers used in the PCR test are specific to Covid-19. That means they match parts of the Covid-19 genome that are unique to Covid-19 and are not present on the genomes of other Coronaviruses. That also means it is impossible to complete a PCR reaction on any other Coronavirus cDNA strand, because the primers won't bind to it. I'm sorry if you don't believe that's the case, but it isn't a matter of belief, that's just biological fact. 

 

Look, here's a link to buy Covid-19 specific primers

https://www.biosearchtech.com/products/pcr-kits-and-reagents/pathogen-detection/2019-ncov-cdc-probe-and-primer-kit-for-sars-cov-2

 

Every lab doing testing on Covid-19 samples will have done internal QC checks to determine if these Covid-19 specific primers worked. If they were detecting false-positives from other Coronaviruses, it would have come up in this QC process... and they wouldn't continue to use the Covid-specific primers, they'd switch to cheaper generic Coronavirus primers and make more money with lower overheads. But labs haven't done that, because internal testing has shown it works and isn't prone to the same false-positives one would get if one used general Coronavirus primers. 

 

I'm open to being incorrect in the above, but you will need to explain why and how Covid-19 specific primers are binding to other Coronavirus cDNA fragments... because the above is all a very sound biological technique that has been applied in research ranging from bird-trait inheritance to cancer research for at least a decade before Covid-19 even existed. If you can't explain why and how Covid-19 specific primers are binding to Coronavirus cDNA fragments to yield false-positive results then maybe you should question why your source didn't bother to explain this... because whoever can explain this will probably win a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for helping us realise one of our most established microbiology techniques is actually crap.

Not sure how many there are but I'm guessing it could well be more than 1000.

 

If it goes down to who's got the longest one (ooh-er missus) I've got 4 years left on mine

1,000 spectators you can social distance. However, I can’t see many clubs backing this - once they covered the cost of stewards, bar staff etc, it will be at a loss.

 

I suggest wait till we can allow substantial amount of people returning.

They’ll still run out of fuckingpies!

Can't see the tories ..especially the tories...splashing billions and billions of money on 'unemployment benefit'..loads of businesses going under etc etc.

 

I'm prob in a minority but to me it seems it's far more serious than they are letting on.

Think the club said bars will remain closed..

 


Point stands though, when you calculate the cost of opening to public, if bars are closed too, wouldn’t receive enough revenue.

(Surely this thread might be best moved out of this forum)

Taking the long term emotional and psychological affects into consideration isn't tantamount to calling it a hoax though. Be responsible, but within reason.

 

For example, many of the evacuees of the 2011 tsunami in Fukashima still suffered from mental distress several years later. Do you think that's so different from taking away everyone's jobs, not letting kids go to school or outside, and having families cooped up in their flats for months on end?

 

Mental health is a real issue, and it's quite possible more will suffer psychologically than physically (with Covid). It's just not as simple and locking everything down indefinitely.

Guess it depends on which scientist you ask. Any how enjoy the match.

The hoax claim was in direct response to some of the replies in this thread.

 

Re. mental health problems and PTSD both of which I suffer from I’ll save it for another day because I want to end this day positively watching Wednesday away at Rochdale....

If bars are closed the club wouldn't receive any revenue. Multi season ticket monies will be already spent so the only thing the club could do is lose money by paying staffing costs. I suppose the only incentive would be that if having 1000 supporters proves to have no adverse effect, the numbers could be gradually raised until normal capacity could be reached.

Don't mate, science is so last year.

I don't think any scientist would make an argument that molecule-specific primers can somehow enable reactions in molecules that don't share those primer sequencing. That would be insane.

 

Your reply shows you have no idea what I'm talking about, or the process that I'm talking about, so it's very safe to say that you're getting this view from a source you have no capability of determining the accuracy from.

 

Let me help you out, as someone that sets up PCR reactions as a job and has handled about 5,000 Covid samples: What you believe is simply not possible. Sorry if that stings.
