    I was in tescos and we were in the pasta isle looking for tomatoes. Random women said to us: "With all that Pasta that toilet paper is going to last people a long long time!"

    haha

    Went to farmfoods and bought a 24pk, its all they had. So even if we didnt want to look likea stockpiling retard, thats all we coudl find lol.

    The supermarket I visited here in Malmö had plenty of toilet paper, but the pasta section was cleaned out.

    Guess the "Just in Time" supply chain isn't well at stupid/panic-shopping.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    My nearest big box Tesco was completely cleaned out of any kind of toilet roll. The pasta, UHT milk and tinned tomatoes I can understand. But how much loo roll do people need ffs?

    Amusingly M&S still had some, so the hoarders are clearly not willing to spend too much to continue wiping their arse during the zombie virus apocalypse.

    For some reason the oats were cleaned out at my local Netto. Plenty of bog rolls though.

    Makes sense I guess. Regular stomach, less need for bog rolls.

    I am not ignoring evidence, I am telling you what actually happens in hospitals. You are delusional if you think those beds were cleared so easily because there's no "seasonal flu". There's too much politics involved and when most EU countries are shutting shit down you should use your brain to get past people trying to explain this is fine.

    90 free beds is good. I wish those won't fill up. But looking at the evidence, the current jump in number of cases and deaths in the UK paints a really dire picture.


    I am responsible for care of patients, it is why I am taking this extremely seriously and so should you. But I guess you think it's scaremongering. I honestly hope I am wrong.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    You can't compare countries like that. Testing methodologies are radically different. In particular the UK has stopped general testing for epidemiological purposes and is relying on samples and models for spread analysis. Tests are now primarily being used for clinical decision making.
    Let me help you with the comparison: UK 10 deaths, DE 0 death. Simple test, works every time.
    UK's method to get over it faster is to say kindly 'quite unique' in the world.
    Orangeman keeping the flights open from UK is another level of stupidity.
    You mean at least 8, not 0.
    If you refer to 8 German deaths... those weren't yesterday but a total number of deaths so far.

    Students were quarantined at my school who were in contact with people that were in contact with someone with the virus. That is moot, we close on Tuesday. Today Berlin (the city/state, not the federal government) banned all public and non-public gatherings over 50 people.

    No, the 10 vs 0 was only the deaths added today. DE is at 8 total. UK at 21 total. If you look at deaths only as an absolute number (which is a bit disingenuous) the UK is now the 9th worst country in the world. Japan is 22 deaths, USA 55, South Korea 72, France 91, Spain 193, Iran 611, Italy 1441 and China 3189. From what we know most of the countries on that list started (a lot) earlier than the UK did, but the UK will catch up fast at this rate.

    It doesn't even matter if you can't understand moonspeak, the message is clear enough.

    "We hebben genoeg" means "We have enough".
    From a person who has been a retail manager for a few years i know this is just a small supply automation hiccup. Just in time management means a supermarket doesn't have any stock except what is on the shelves, the algo's predict the sales based on history, if the manager doesn't adjust volumes the algo's take 2 to 3 days to adjust.

    That being said you have a terrible super market manager if he didn't order extra bogrolls and family size rice packs. Mine did, no shortage at all.


    Now if all the people in the big warehouses start to keel over and there are not enough truck drivers left....that is when we will have real problems. Trickling down to the packaging warehouses it gets real nasty but that is 6 months down the line (6 months is a typical stock from the canning up so to speak).
    nah, it'll be fucked next week (as far as retail is concerned). the supply reaction to increased volume in stores is kicking in now, and distribution depots are now in the position of having double the volume both incoming (from suppliers) and outgoing (to stores). even if no-one is sick at all, it falls over very quickly when you have a sustained unscheduled spike. hell most depots fall apart towards the end of christmas every year even with 11 months to prepare. bearing in mind this is march, so companies are (or were) currently building up volume in summer stock, and have been in the process of running down their volume of winter stock. meaning they don't actually have as big a stock holding as they usually would... unless you want picnic gear and BBQ's

    it'll even out, but depots will be running way behind for a few weeks while they feed temp staff into the grinder to recover. and stores will have a bunch of gaps on shelves while that happens. *shrug* there will still be food, there's no-where near a shortage of anything, just logistical issues.

    The actual city ordinance passed by Berlin. This is quite encompassing:

    - no public and non-public gatherings over 50 people (as mentioned in my last post)
    - all public and non-public gatherings under 50 people need to create a list of people present with names, addresses and phone numbers and the list needs to be kept for 4 weeks

    - closure of all clubs, bars, concert halls, trade shows, exhibitions, casinos, cinemas, theaters, museums, brothels
    - restaurants need to keep a distance of 1.5m between patrons

    - all sports are canceled
    - all gyms etc. are closed
    - exceptions can be granted to Olympic athletes and if exercise sessions are needed for animal welfare

    - all hospitals need to "retool" towards dealing with COVID-19
    - no patients over 16 can receive visitors
    - under 16 only 1 visitor for 1 hour, visitors with respiratory issues are banned
    - nursing homes 1 visitor for 1 hour, visitors with respiratory issues are banned as well as children

    - schools are closed
    - exams can only happen with 1.5m distance between students.

    This is in power until April 19.

    My bold, I know it's legal over there but I still had to do a double take.

    That's pretty comprehensive.

    I can see the logic of the UK's approach but also think it's a pretty big gamble... if it goes wrong the government can blame the experts, punt a good chunk of projected health and social care spending into the long grass and enjoy the benefits of a bit of generational wealth transfer.

    It makes good sense though; makes it easy to track and quarantine people.

      Spoiler:




    Edit: Speaking of something serious. India is reporting 88 cases as of yesterday. This seems way low?

    As I said, we have students being quarantined for having contact with someone who had contact with a patient. Not because they themselves had contact.

    Berlin looked like it was doing fuck all. Now they went all out.

    I'm not impressed. This should really mandate a specific government-issued form with an 11 digit ID number in the upper right corner, preferably on green paper.

    Then people would need to start queuing up for that form and as soon as the queue gets longer than a couple of persons they would need to fill in the form that they are queuing for in order to be able to obtain the form they need for their gathering.

    That would be the proper German way.
