i saw earlier thanks but even so there are more stages to go with the vaccine to make sure it works so its still a few months minimum away but its promising aslong as they dont charge the earth for it.

I gotta feeling this vaccine might be free? Even if Governments are stupid enough not to pay for it, surely the likes of the 'Gates foundation' or Google would step up to the plate?

The article says we could be 18 months away from a vaccine, most "experts" seem to think nearer a year.

However... It's important to remember, it might be only a few months before we have 'therapeutics' that will to a large degree negate, or alleviate the effects of Covid19.

Then again...

In Britain you just know any vaccine will be uber-rationed and almost impossible to get a jab.

I doubt it, it will be rushed through by desperate government.
Look at those doing the briefings they are terrified.

Anyone who thinks this season isn't null and void after Boris yesterday needs to give their head a wobble
As regards what Dane said whilst Liverpool are miles in front we can't have arbitrary decisions saying well yeah Liverpool deserve it but Argyle don't
Its null and void for everyone or complete the season at the start of 2021 when this "probably" will have died down....then recommence in August 2021

With Liverpool there is only Man City that can catch them. Prem bosses could speak to City and ask them to consider giving the title to Liverpool.
As for the rest of the season all games could be played behind closed doors and have games twice a week on a Saturday and Wednesday after a 2 week lay off.

Still on the slightly brighter side, global greenhouse admissions are down and tourism is not wrecking enviroments to the extent it usually does.

Yet from the beach you can see an endless procession of huge container ships spewing out heavy oil gases to provide cheap hand held devices for you to preach from Angers. No one is blameless in this day and age not even us who try to lessen the impact of our lives.
I paid some millionaire in USA to hide my carbon for this trip so at least my concience is clean.

This thread is about football and coronavirus. I made a comment about it like others but it is only me who is living on another plant. Why have you not made that comment to other people?

Or it's about people not travelling around pumping shit into the atmosphere, maybe you should go and engage with a youth climate strike and see how concerned young people are about there futures or maybe they are brainwashed by a "weird sweedish spokeswoman".

they talk utter bollocks as they confuse climate change and global warming as if they are the same thing. Plus when i see one of those protests that doesn't involve them driving cars getting buses or using non recyclable materials for their signs then i may take their views seriously along with the swedish child who is a hypocrite with her carbon footprint she generates every time she pops up in a country usually a country that does have things in place to combat global warming and never russia, india, japan or china who along with the usa who i would have thought protesting and encouraging pensioners to do flash mobs would be the place to start,

The National League has suspended all fixtures until 3 April and the Football Association has advised all grassroots football in England be postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

A venn diagram of those calling for the season to be voided and those who hate Liverpool would be interesting.

Championship clubs open to the idea of playing behind closed doors, if they do do that, I would assume League One and Two will follow.

The EFL Board met today to discuss the implications of the COVID-19 outbreak for the League and its Clubs.

After receiving a detailed brief on a number of matters, the Board reaffirmed that the health and well-being of EFL staff, players, Club employees and supporters would remain central to all decisions in these fast-changing circumstances.

The EFL Board also acknowledges the positive role that member Clubs are playing in community solidarity, especially in supporting the vulnerable at this time.

2019/20 SEASON SCHEDULE

The primary objective, in order to protect competition integrity, is to deliver a successful conclusion to the 2019/20 season, subject to the over-riding priority around health and well-being. Plans continue to be developed on the agreed principle that it is in the best interests of the EFL and Clubs to complete the current season at the appropriate time.

The EFL is continuing regular dialogue with the Government and relevant health authorities and, as and when more information is known regarding the scale and extent of the coronavirus outbreak in this country, a decision will be taken on the resumption of the League’s fixtures.

Conversations will continue with the EFL’s counterparts at the FA, the Premier League, the PFA and the LMA to ensure football achieves a joined-up and collaborative approach.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

As part of the League’s continued contingency planning, the Board heard the comments and observations from EFL Clubs, before discussing a number of issues including the current financial position and implications, insurance, regulatory matters and broadcasting arrangements.

Discussions centred on financial relief for Clubs in the short term and while there is no one single solution, measures are to be put in place to immediately assist with cash flow via a £50million short-term relief package.

This fund consists of the remaining Basic Award payments being advanced to Clubs immediately, with the remainder made up through interest-free loan facility available to Clubs, calculated in line with the EFL’s Article of Associations.

The cash injection is included as part of a series of measures, that includes potential Government support to help Clubs and their associated businesses through this period of uncertainty. The EFL welcomes last night’s announcement made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and is continuing discussions to understand how our Clubs can access the funding made available to support businesses.

In addition, we will continue our discussions with our football partners to determine how we can all get through this difficult, challenging and unprecedented situation.

CONTINGENCY PLANNING

The EFL, through a dedicated taskforce, continues to review the threat posed by the coronavirus pandemic, and its impact on our Clubs and competitions.

Alongside ensuring the 2019/20 season reaches a successful conclusion, protecting the EFL and its Clubs is a key priority for the EFL Board, who have today agreed on the following objectives to support future decision-making:

• Ensure the health and well-being of our Clubs’ employees, supporters and communities
• Make a positive contribution to the UK’s efforts to tackle coronavirus
• Protect the EFL’s financial model and Club finances
• Enable the EFL to continue to function as a business
• Deliver a successful conclusion to the 2019/20 season

Scary reading...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

As of today Plymouth has 5 confirmed cases.  If the modelling is again proved correct, in 30 days it will stand at approximately 5120  (Good luck Derriford)

Devons 36 confirmed cases today will stand at 36,864

Cornwalls 10 will reach 10,240 (Good luck Treliske)

A total of 47,104 infected people in the main Argyle catchment area in just 30 days!

With a 3% fatality rate that's 1570 deaths.

With the Green Army's demographic, it seems inevitable we will lose some Argyle fans?

The Senior Greens should self quarantine!

So in short, the various football authorities have committed to completing the season before sporting year end in June. Which completely flies in the face of the expert opinion on here and from chair people of relegation threatened clubs.

If it can’t happen by The end of June it becomes a little murkier. However my personal feeling is they’ll still try and find a way to conclude all competitions.

They shut down the weekend fixtures against scientific advise. That was a PR exercise. They are just perverse.

No new domestic cases of COVID-19 in China after around 4 months of the epidemic there. That's what we need to emulate.
