    My local area is absolutely jammed today traffic levels and foot fall back to pre covid - 19 days. A bit of a worry considering numbers are starting to climb again.

        Probably, but what are the chances of that?

          Can anyone tell me why we are not testing all passengers of flights from (at least) the worst infected areas at our airports?!

            official reason is "Why we don't carry out temperature checks on everyone arriving in Ireland


            Temperature testing is unreliable. Many people with coronavirus have no symptoms. A high temperature can be caused for many reasons. It can also be hidden by medication."

              Thanks HR,

              So could they not just swab test passengers from high risk areas so??

              And if they refuse, (or maybe don't have a certified, very, very recent one from their own country) send them back?

                From high risk areas? Like Sweden?

                  Iceland said they were going to test everybody on arrival, and require you to isolate until you had results. If positive you had to quarantine. you had to install the app on your phone that would let you know your results and track your movement

                  Temperature checks could be worthwhile in an office or school or even a store where you simply say temperature = no entry. Yes, those pre or asymptomatic wouldnt be picked up but its all about reducing probabilities right? But I dont think it would be terribly useful at an airport since you are not going to turn anybody with a temperature back

                    Swedish officials eschewed sweeping shutdowns when the pandemic hit. Some reasoned that Sweden could still power down if COVID-19 cases spiked. But the spike arrived, along with a high death rate, and still there’s been no policy change.

                          Totally agree

                          Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                              And they spend **** all when they get here. They're in bed by 9.30. The young yanks booze a bit but have no stamina, the whitehairs are frugal as all ****
