Covid-19

I logged into the forum for the first time in a few months today, and looked through a few threads.

I've noticed that people are using the forum as a vehicle for posting things suggesting that Coronavirus is a hoax, and that the government is lying to us about it. I very much doubt that anyone posting such claims has any proof to back them up, unless we have government insiders using the forum.

Donald Trump has been posting baseless rubbish on Twitter since he lost the presidential election in November, and they have had to warn people that he is posting things that do not match the facts. Unfortunately, we don't have such a thing here, so it falls to me to make this post.

I don't want to start banning people for using this forum as a vehicle for political rantings, but I will if it doesn't stop.

As an aside, we have Covid testing facilities at work (we've been asked to trial the new rapid result test), and have had a dozen people test positive since November. I very much doubt that any of those people are lying, or that the tests were fraudulently returned positive just to skew the official numbers. We've had something of an outbreak where I work, and we're all taking it seriously.

I hope this post is clear.

OK, I'm leaving that post in, so I can reply to it.

Any more will be deleted.
