  1. DKB Visa chargeback for cancelled flights

    Thanks Fraufruit. I missed that thread.
  2. Has anyone here requested a chargeback on their DKB Visa for flights cancelled by an airline?   I'm getting the runaround from Aer Lingus after requesting a refund from them one month ago for flights they cancelled due to Corona.

    I bet a disproportionate amount of Swedish cases will be in ethnic minorities where multi-generational cohabitation is common. Ethnic Swedes do social distancing by default. They more commonly live alone and home office and flexible work life balance stuff was commonplace before Covid19.

    What the absolute fuck are you on man? Kincora boys home was in Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. Do you know the difference between Ireland and Northern Ireland??   Also, I read the article. It does not mention people trafficking even once!!   Do you just post random shit hoping not to be called out on it?!

    How many decades?

    If you tell me where your homeland is, I'll name a name.

    Ireland counts more reliably than the US. Many countries have failed to accurately count out of hospital fatalities. This is especially true for nursing homes. Ireland counted nursing home Covid 19 deaths from the beginning. In fact most of Ireland's deaths have been in nursing homes. Ireland counts more reliably than the US and tests many more people.   Ireland could have done better in preventing the disease getting in to nursing homes. I'm prepared to admit my country made mistakes unlike some proxy Americans ;-)

    Jeremy my dear man, Trump failed to act for the entire month of February. He banned Chinese people from entering the US and then basically did nothing but guess what, the epicentre had already shifted to Italy and no restrictions were imposed on Italians at that stage. A whole month was wasted and the buck stops with the president for that.   If you want to be president you have to be able to take responsibility for the bad as well as the good. The orange man child is unable to do it because he's mentally not fit for the office he holds.

    Our school in Brandenburg will be similar. I'm also sceptical right now but hope for the best.

    The US intelligence agencies do not report to the governor of New York or the mayor of New York city. They were however sending daily reports of the emerging threat to the White House. These were passed on to President Trump who failed to act and failed to inform the states of the imminent threat.   The buck stops with the president.

    I don't see how we can do this without technology to automate, in real time the contact tracing once an infection is confirmed or even suspected in a person.   Under lockdown it may be just about possible but with more contact between people the number of contacts to trace becomes very large.

    We meaning the readers here.

    I think the countries that bore the brunt of the fatalities will actually take social distancing more seriously as they leave complete lockdown than countries like Germany where in the minds of many, nothing happened.

    Children allowed out for fresh air in Spain for the first time in weeks today.

    According to RBB news just now, Trump will no longer take part in the nightly press conferences. He's such a coward.

    Trump's only allegiance is to himself 😉

    It goes without saying that lots of really bad stuff happens in a dictatorship or quasi dictatorship like China or Russia. We don't set our yardsticks according to such countries.

    I suspect Sweden is helped by its very small average household size. It's quite common to live alone there. It's not the home of cheap flat pack furniture by accident.

    He's the president. For reasons known only unto them, millions of idiots believe what he says. He's a dangerous idiot that the US could really do without at the moment.    Don't take my word for it. The CDC felt obliged to release a statement yesterday in which they reminded people in the proper use of disinfectants. The problem is that whilst millions see and hear the orange ape's shit for brains comments and 'bright ideas', hardly anyone is regularly checking the CDC website to see if it directly contradicts these dangerous ideas.   Birx and Fauci were missing from the conference yesterday. They are both probably considering their careers after 45 has left the self-obsessed wing (blatantly stolen from Roy Zimmerman!) and wondering is it such a good idea to share a stage with someone who suggests that injecting disinfectant should be studied. It doesn't do much for your credentials to be seen politely nodding along to such garbage.

    He wasn't being sarcastic at all last night. He lied about that today. A blatant lie but most of his idiot supporters will accept it as truth.   He claimed that they should study the effects of sunlight inside the body and also whether or not disinfectant could kill the virus inside the body. He's a failure as a president and a human being.

    Trump just walked out after the press conference this evening rather than face tough questions about the dangerous misinformation he spouted last night.
  22. A little light relief..

    Exactly. The masks are not to protect the healthy wearer. They are to prevent the I'll wearer infecting others and studies show a very high degree of completely asymptomatic infection amongst the population. Only those who know they already had it can reasonably assume they are not currently infectious.

    The definition of a Covid 19 death differs from country to country. Not all Covid 19 deaths are being recorded as such and some non-Covid 19 deaths are. Comparisons will never be easy unfortunately.

    It is a genius idea. Simplicity itself. Probably because some poor country thought of it first it is dismissed in this part of the world.    As for the BCG rumour being "false"...the link posted by Oscar above is relating to a specific rumour circulating on WhatsApp that claims you are 75% protected against Covid 19 if you have a BCG scar. That of course wasn't claimed by anyone here.   The WHO correctly states that at present there is no proof that BCG is any help whatsoever against Covid 19. It also states that there are clinical trials in progress and the WHO will await the results as is right and proper.   "However, the World Health Organization says there is no evidence that the BCG protects people from Covid-19 infection. The health body says two clinical trials are under way involving BCG, and when completed, their findings will be evaluated by the WHO."   BCG may still be effective against Covid 19 but we don't know either way yet. There is a statistical correlation but causation hasn't been proven yet and that's what those clinical trials are for. Hopefully there is causation.
