Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

Unfortunately immunity is more complex than merely producing antibodies to the virus. I would expect those who have died almost certainly had antibodies but perhaps were deficient in other essential components of the immune response such as killer T-cells.

So we've got the wizard coming. Still hoping to see Lewington and Alemanno in the 'Incoming' column and preferably a back rower.
Lets hope we see him Slytherin through the opposition.

Re: LEICESTER TIGERS 2020/21 SQUAD/TRANSFERS/CONTRACT THREAD

Jordan is still a young man. Work needed on defence but this season he showed more self belief and he certainly can finish. If he continues to improve he will be a first choice.

Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

A huge number of the people who have died from coronavirus would have died from flu this winter, or from X or Y or Z. We did the right thing by locking down, and we need to take measures to protect some of the more vulnerable in society, but we are at serious risk of dragging this out much longer t...

Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

A second wave. Well..... My youngest is a TV producer. She was talking with a well-known Doctor a couple of days ago... "All the medical teams are exhausted. A second wave could see morale plummet and swathes of them off with stress. I hope the idiots flooding to the beaches this weekend bear that ...

Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

Many businesses are not going to survive the first wave and as other have suggested I too anticipate a second. I wonder how professional rugby could survive an extensive period of isolating measures. The world in future may not be as we know it now.

Re: Matt Scott

A quick look at the comments on the Edinburgh fans' forum... "I'm gutted" "Me too, if that's true. Scott was different class to our other centres this season, and had an ability to makes breaks none of the others could. We will be duller to watch without him." "Alas, we miss out on his X factor, wh...

Re: Provisional Premiership Return Date ?

Testing for Covid is the same as an MOT certificate, ie its only valid on the day its conducted. Furthermore the cost of maintaining and conducting a Covid testing programme until such times when a vaccine becomes available would be prohibitive. Indeed and it would require a rapid test ideally carr...

Re: Will games get cancelled?

Sadly 55 deaths now but with a touted low end estimate of 50k infected thats a 0.11% mortality rate. Id hazard a guess that theres more likely to be 150k infected. Sadly not a realistic estimate. You need to calculate the deaths now to the number infected about 14 days ago as it takes a while for p...

Re: Will games get cancelled?

If the season is resumed, perhaps to ensure we are still able to finish by June, they may run B sides in Premiership fixtures on a Wednesday then play the European games at the weekends? Or is that not feasible? The way things are going then at this point I'd assume that the season is over. The gov...
