You're right, the lack of information coming from main stream media is equally harmful.Think how much worse the rumour mill about Covid-19 would be even without the 'net. While we can and should deprecate the spread of alarmist and fake news on the 'net at least it is a communications system where clarification can be issued.
I don't mind this lockdown one bit, I was always inclined to "self isolate" anyway, I don't like not being allowed to go for long walks with the dog (only 50 meters from home is allowed). Hubby is a social animal, but he's enjoying the lockdown too.I'm thinking of forming a sort of furtive and guilty club of people who like self-isolating.

The HSE cheif when asked about this claim this evening, rubished this claim and said that their is no evidence to back this.

IMO, politicians ( as they do ) are exploiting this pandemic for their own advantage - to shore themselves up. The Times has a front page photo of Boris Johnson posing with his clenched fists on the table - thumbnails pointing a his target audience." ….Public gatherings of more than two are outlawed unless they are members of the same household."
A Prime Minister who would ordinarily have great difficulty in complying with that instruction himself, if past history is anything to go by.
A beautiful version of The Parting Glass from @Hozier with a dedication to all the people who have lost their lives to this virus, including the health worker who died today.
