  1. Facts would seem counter to that, there are lots of aircraft parked up at airports, aircrew no longer working and airlines worried about their futures. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52093009 "Passenger flights are believed to have been cut by up to 95%, but that still means one in 20 are taking off" according to this https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52098430
  2. Because it's a simpler calculation, without all the variables involved with the weather and psychopathic financiers doing crazy things for short term gain. There is a model for the stock market that does very well with it's stocks long term, but it doesn't satisfy the gambling urge of the "investors" who keep the stockbrokers doing very nicely without any personal risk to themselves.
  3. You're too late for that in many countries, some leaders were and perhaps still are behind the curve..
  4. Supermarket staff are essential workers. Our local shops have 2 metre markings on the floor and a hand spray for every shopper who enters. Germany is testing a lot more than other countries. it's the same procedure as the South Koreans, so they were ahead of the curve. .
  5. As the article regarding Sweden says, you can't apply their rules in different countries, They have a very small population compared to the USA and a different culture, they also have a different healthcare system.
  6. The UK government has suggested October as a possibly. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52084517
  7. They're already writing some scripts for short films: https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2020-03-23/bbc-scriptwriting-competition/
  8. Here's information from the BFI regarding the screen sector in the UK: https://www.bfi.org.uk/supporting-uk-film/covid-19-answering-questions-screen-sectors
  9. A scheme for the self employed has been announced in the UK. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52053914
  10. There probably will be a crossover point, where they have enough ventilators and other medical resources in place to deal with a flattened curve, combined with an improved immunity within the population, to allow closer to normal activity. Bearing in mind that there could be a series of repeat curves the final call could be political, rather than based on purely economic or health reasons. What works in one country may not work in another.
  11. That would roughly fit in with the 12 week period that people at risk here have been asked to stay in their homes.
  12. I suspect this thread is getting too political for a cinematography forum. As for the original question, after the first bell curve has past is the most likely time scale.
  13. Even more foolish are those who believe everything Trump says. He more interested in getting re-elected and events have taken over.
  14. Stopping the lens down will increase the DOF
  15. I've been in factories where they're sitting/standing closer than 2 metres. I've also been in offices where they're sitting a lot closer than 2 metres. You can also get your car fixed in the UK: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-51176409
