Replying To Trump2020:  "I think he means bringing it home to the grandparents."
Ya, I thought that alright but there is no evidence that children transmit it to adults and are generally not affected in the same way. If the parents who are at games or training take care then I don't think it would be a problem.

If the kids aren't allowed back to school until September, will they really let them back playing sport? I hope they do, my gang are going crazy here with no GAA or soccer training/matches!

A good indicator will be a decision on the the leaving cert as well most likely see 6th years back before both full schools or sport

"but there is no evidence that children transmit it to adults"

This is not true. Please stop spouting dangerous nonsense.

Not exactly sure what you mean by that. It was a valid observation based on what the article presented, nobody on here will be part of making any rules or regulations so I don't see any harm in discussing it.
Myself I draw no conclusions from any of these reports studies as this virus is barley six months old so you are going to find multiple studies and reports and some will be contradictory to each other. As for kids I think this one best explains where the thinking is
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-30/children-with-coronavirus-may-be-just-as-infectious-as-adults

So they know there are things about kids that mean that they don't pick it up as easy as adults but they do get infected and are as infected with the virus as anyone else however they may not pass it on as easily as adults but they don't know why yet.
It provides hope but not certainty.

It's you that is making the claims, not me. Unlike you, I have never said anything for certain about this virus.

From the Independent

"In Switzerland, authorities said on 29 April it is now safe for children under 10 to hug their grandparents because young children "do not transmit" the virus. But German virologist Christian Drosten conducted a study, published a day after the Swiss announcement, which found children "may be just as infectious as adults".

While there are those who state that the evidence is not yet robust enough to come to a clear conclusion on the matter"

The point is, this pathegen is new and we still don't understand it. While there are lots of different research being carried out, nothing is certain at this stage.

If kids are not going back to school until September there will be no organised club activity until then end of way too risky and insurnace my God! Adults is different, training of the non contact variety should be ok but I don't see anything happening competitively until there are zero cases or very few. Virus's do tend to disappear in the summer and re-emerge in autumn/winter. So we have to find a new way of keeping folk involved. But you can be sure sports will have to be opened up all together and govt will keep a tight rein on that.

I wouldn't trust any pronouncements just yet.

Nobody knows. Far too early. Don't let anybody kid you.

The French are saying that smoking kills off the virus but I've not started buying 20 Craven A a day.

There will have to be some tipping point in the future though.. there is absolutely no guarantee of securing a vaccine for this. Like we all want it yesterday but the reality is that the scientific community haven't got near their heads around it yet. So what happens..no contact sports for 20,21,22 and so on. The only certainty at the moment is the uncertainty of this and as for 2020 inter county seen it's surely a case of when it will be parked up for the year.

I repeat. You said "There is NO evidence that children transmit it to adults"

There is evidence An eminent German virologist has said so.

Now you say there is lots of research going on and nothing is certain. You sound just like Donald Trump. If kids don't transmit, then why were the schools the first to be pulled?? If kids don't transmit then why are they nearly the last to go back?? Call it off now and go and foot the turf while the weather is middlin good.
