    We’re in “lockdown” and, even though we get plenty of information from the media, we have to bear in mind that every news organisation out there has its own agenda. Information is always “re-interpreted” by the media, then delivered to the public, so why not access information direct from source and cut out the middle-men?

    In this thread, information will be offered directly from as wide a field as possible, to complement data that’s offered more locally by our own NHS and HSE.


    Only verified, officially released information relating to COVID-19 will be posted, so at least folk on here don’t have to spend time rooting around the internet, or worrying about whether the info. is reliable or not. If you're browsing and you find specific information from the sources below that would be of interest to others, post it in this thread and it will be added to the resource list as a verified link.

    If you find information elsewhere on the internet that you believe to be
    useful, accurate, valid and verifiable, post it in the "sticky" thread so it can be checked and added to the resource list.

    Thanks to those who make any future contributions: we’ve all got plenty of time on our hands, so spare a minute or two to keep this thread active and reliable.

    In an effort to combat Coronavirus, the Government has enacted emergency
    measures which includes the closure of shops selling non-essential goods and
    banning public gatherings of more than two people, but how does this impact
    the motorist?

    Here’s an accurate representation of cases, deaths and recoveries on a by country basis:

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

    Referring back to the Italian lady who wrote the paper that ‘she can see our future’, I note that their first recorded case was a day before us yet we have significantly less cases and deaths. That gives me a little bit of optimism.

    Came across this document earlier produced by a local charity. It is specifically aimed at helping explain the current requirements to young children and vulnerable people. The context here is really important as the final two points do not apply to all and of course is likely to be out of date at any time.
