    There are only 9 ICU beds left in NI tonight. Some of those are paediatric, and given the delay in the data those remaining adult ones are likely filled by now.

    We need help. I'm sure they will pull a few more bits of equipment out of cupboards and I imagine there's a chance of a plane full of Cuban doctors arriving into Belfast by the end of the week, but unfortunately the unnecessary deaths will start tomorrow if patients can't be transferred across the border or over to GB (fairly impractical).

    Jesus. 13 dead today.

    We now have 5 more unoccupied ICU beds than yesterday. So at least 8 were admitted.

    May God rest their souls.

    13 in the North. 5 here. (Edit - I see you've referred to NI figures before, apologies! That's just by way of clarification then I guess)

    The number of deaths is unfortunately likely to rise in the coming days. You don't die instantly, so deaths are based on cases a couple of weeks ago, not today. I've heard it suggested that deaths today should be around 1% of cases three weeks ago. Three weeks ago we were recording 500 cases a day, so 5 deaths a day now is about right. But of course we hit 1300 cases a day last week, so we can probably expect to see 13 deaths a day soon.

    There have been a fair few people mouthing off in Scotland recently that the pubs have been shut for ten days and cases and deaths haven't decreased. I've given up trying to explain the concept of incubation periods and exponential growth to these people.

    Surprised that this thread died off. So to speak. I've been wondering how compliance is going on around the country, purely out of curiosity.

    In the last few weeks I've been over to Waterford city, around and about Cork city and surrounds a few times, and of course locally in east Cork and I think we're doing pretty well. The number of people I've seen not wearing face coverings is very low, I'm surprised when I see someone, and even the nose-exposers aren't too common. People still seem so have trouble with some aspects of distancing, but again, it's not a big thing.

    What's your experiences with the rest of the country?

    Yeah siliar to that to be honesy. Generally good compliance. That said I noticed previously that two shops a couple of miles apart could have radically different levels of compliance in the past.

    I'm in Dublin, and see much the same. Most people wear masks, and most of them wear them more or less correctly. If there's a serious issue with compliance at the moment, I expect it's in terms of visiting homes.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    More or less the same. People are wearing masks where they are supposed to where I am and for the most part social distancing is maintained. I am in the GPO fairly regularly for work purposes, and they have staff there who do order people to adhere to floor positions for queues. At the same time my local supermarket has clearly stopped caring. They have a "Green/Red" light system at the front door, but it isn't monitored so no-one pays it any mind, and the few times I have been there in the last month it's mobbed. The bus was pretty full this morning too I noticed.

    In terms of home visits, it's easy for me as my family are on the other side of the country, but I know people who have broken the restriction regularly. Sometimes they don't care, sometimes they are pressured by their parents who don't care. It's hard for people I suppose, and no one is going to stop them.

    So at least we seem to have finally seen sense on the masks anyway.

    The only group I really see intentionally acting the maggot on masks are teenagers and maybe young twenties, mostly when I'm up near my office in the northside. Just the ignorance of youth I guess, and the rebellious attitude of northsiders.

    Numbers are still crazy high that. Reading articles parroting VFI press releases do my head in.

    It's a mix around my area in Dublin. There's definitely more social visits going on than when we had full lockdown (in fairness within the regulations in terms of social bubble in some cases). It can be a bit hit and miss with masks, definitely more wearing than not, but no shortage of chin wearers, or pull them down as soon as in the door merchants.

    Plenty of groups of teens, bigger groups that I'd have expected with the running club and the astro park had about 40 people in there the other day (it's closed but there's a gap in the fence and some of the pitches are unlocked, there was refs and all there at the weekend). General interactions are higher than a full lock down and in fairness level 5 was never meant to be full lockdown (in the way of the initial one), but it presumably explains why the numbers didn't drop as quickly or as suddenly as the government would have liked.

    I though it was funny when the schools went back, NEPHET said they noticed more movement and interactions in the week after, they said it wasn't kids so they wouldn't say it was school related. But, I think it's pretty obvious that most kids are still being brought to school, that leads to parents meeting and that leads to going for a coffee or just standing having a chat for longer that they would otherwise. I know they don't want to pin anything on the schools (I love how only the school outbreaks are asterixed with "transmission within the school cannot be proven" unlike every other outbreak) but it's hard to imagine that the schools being open is not a significant factor in the community transmission cases refusing to disappear again.

    With all the talk of the vaccine I'm sure people will start to slip a bit further now too in terms of social interactions. There's a serious amount of fatigue and angst and with Christmas looming, it's only human that more interactions are going to happen, and common sense will start to go out the window (it might be level 3 but I think it'll be more like no restrictions in day to day interactions, only work from home might still continue for a lot of us).

    we were told this morning that our office reopen date has been postponed again, until March. Think that's the fifth time it's been postponed.
    If it does reopen then, it'll be a year since the last time I was at my desk
