Re: SARS-COV2 could cease to be a pandemic in the near future

All I have been trying to do has been to point out that we are culpable in this disease spreading and can be the answer to stopping it. Apart from the illness and deaths the only other crap is what the epidemic is doing to the economy and via that to other societal problems.

Years ago hated seeing Oliver's name being the ref as I didn't rate him at all, but now, probably best referee we have in the league.
And I think he has gone the opposite way. Thought he was an excellent young ref but now he buys too much of the prima donna performances for my liking.
