[OFF TOPIC] Coronavirus Pandemic



Recommended Posts

So, the show officially started some 2 hours ago. Obviously some troubles like and mainly the lack of medics in some places caused complications, some testing stations did not open in time, but the army is dealing with it and by eight o'clock this morning apparently 91% of the stations were open. They claim that during the morning all stations will be open and ready as schedulled.

 



However since early morning today Crazy queues are forming all over Slovakia from the west to east, from north to south of the country, in every city and almost all villages (The smaller villages with less inhabitants will have only 1 testing day, they were allowed to select if today or tommorow)

 

 

One special "Drive-In" testing station in Bratislava (people of the capitals, they are all the same everywhere I swear) :lol:

Unfortunately I got infected through my roommate who came back from Austria about 1,5 week ago after the town he visited got quarantined due to a Corona outbreak. He and all of his friends he went on

Its getting worse here, despite less cases, today over 630 people dies!   Also my 83yo grandmother is tested positive and is in special hospital for covid patients, I can please for prayers

no, here the lockdown isn't even close to the Chinese method...and in any case, here a total lockdown like Wuhan's wouldn't work...   different Countries, different culture, different attitu

Crazy queues doesn't sound like the very brightest of ideas in 2020 :d 

Scientists have already established that the virus only spreads when people are standing side by side, like in bars, and not from back to front, like in queues.

First 1/4 is over.

 

Attendance look just impressive. Long, very very long fronts of people standing infront of all testing stations. We don´t have the official numbers so far, the Minister of Defence announced he´ll have a more detailed press conference around 16:00, with probably the morning numbers...

 

Pictures from the morning

Heard last week pilot trial event story about two Argentine tourists came to Slovakia, when they noticed people standing in lines here and there and found out about the free nationwide testing, they decided to join.

 

unfortunately... both were positive

@hckosice sorry I am not up to date on what’s going on. What is the goal of this mass testing? Is it to discover who currently has the virus only or is it an anti-body test also to see who already had it? 
Also what if some people pick up the virus after this test, maybe as a result of close contact with others being tested. Is this a once-off mass test?

1. hopes the testing and subsequent placing of positive people into isolation will help reverse the current trend where we are seeing a record-high daily increases in new cases.

 

The experts recommended 2 weeks ago only 1 thing. Total and full 3 weeks national lockdown. The PM and governement decided to try one last attempt a mild lockdown and a nation wide testing in 2 consecutive weekends.

 

2. Is it to discover the biggest possible amount of asymptomatic pacients. and place them into isolation to not spread the virus.

 

3. The next weekend should be scheduled the retesting of all negatives from this weekend (for example The all negatives from the 4 most touched northern districts that had last weekend the trial round) are now retested and the next weekend will be tested for third time

 

 

Hope this will help to answer your question, if you want to know more I suggest you to follow this site in english https://spectator.sme.sk/c/22523203/nationwide-testing-for-covid-19-launched.html
