I dunno, you'll have to do it well or it'll just be cringe. Maybe look into more abstract things like particular spirits and stuff. Just an idea, (and I know cannibalism is all a bit meh and that) but the idea of a group having a strange obsession with something like lets say the Wendigo folk legend would be pretty cool and interesting.
You could build it up overtime as well, like progression and stuff and I did see a nice location in the new trailer that you could use with like a deer skeleton or some shit so that could fit your narrative quite well also.
The non covid death rates will be sky high after this, think about it, the government came off a massive electoral win, winning areas that typically vote labour, they dont want to lose those voters so they gave into the media and the outcry to save the nhs now have no clue how to get out of this mess. Covid is no worse than the flu for people that dont have underlying health conditions or are past the age expectancy. The elderly should have been protected and the rest of us could have gotten on with our lives.
As much as I hate the lockdown, some people without underlying health conditions and the young do die from Covid-19 albeit a smaller percentage. There are also thousands of people who have undiagnosed health conditions walking around. The proof a lockdown works is the evidence of a drop in infections and Covid-19 related deaths in countries that have been in lockdown. Its shit but a necessity to slow the spread of the virus. I say slow because Covid-19 is not disappearing any time soon.
If you look at how the infections/deaths were rising before the UK went into lockdown then imagine how it would look now without one if you follow the trend, the NHS would have been overwhelmed by Covid-19 patients.
This government has got a lot of things wrong during this pandemic but I think the lockdown was the right thing to do. You can see this in the now downward trend of infections/deaths.
I honestly do not believe the numbers that come out in the media, the government are advising doctors to place covid as the cause of death on peoples death certificates which is disgusting if you ask me. The scientist (Neil Ferguson) who advised the uk government to go into lockdown and strip people of their liberty's has been wrong on multiple occasions when it comes to the spread and deaths concerning viral diseases, mad cow and swine flu to be exact. He also had to resign from his position for breaking the lockdown rules himself to sleep with his mistress. We have an immune system for a reason, to protect us from stuff like this. Viruses peak and fall all the time, look at the rate of death from the flu. This is no different. Mass hysteria has been built up over time and I just can't understand why people believe it? At the end of the day, I strongly believe that the infringement on my and many others rights was not worth it, to apparently save us from a virus that has much in common with the flu.
Herd immunity is the strategy that should've been put in place, while shielding the elderly and vulnerable. Looks to me like everyone in 2020 forgot they have an immune system.
500,000 people a year die from flu, I get that. The difference is Covid-19 is so much more infectious than 'normal' flu.
Even though people are infectious not all symptomatic but they are still infectious, it can be 5-14 days until they show so it could be spread to lots of people during this time. Our immune system has evolved over time to deal with certain viruses etc. but no one is immune to Covid-19 and that is the problem. There is a differing scale on how Covid-19 effects an individual, some get no symptoms and some get life threatening symptoms but all are infectious. I personally know several people that have died from this thing and to their families it is very real and serious. If Covid-19 was not here those people like many others around the world would be still alive.
Shielded people would needed to be shielded for a very long time as Covid-19 is not going away. Slow the infection rate and get a vaccine is a priority.
Majority of countries that are effected have gone into some sort of lockdown surely they cannot be all wrong?
I don't listen to the media, they tend to just want to sell papers etc. and sensationalise everything. It's always about the numbers that have died and very little about the many thousands that have survived. I am very suspect of the numbers of people infected/died that are being released I actually think the number is higher than is being reported.
Theres a 99.98% chance of that not happening so I think ill take my chances, total destruction of world economies, destruction of small business, massive spike in cancer deaths as well as mental health cases. Just not worth it but hey thanks for the discussion, I like to see a difference in opinion.
AJ was born in 1989, into the Abad family. His father, Mohammed and his mother Khadija were immigrants from Iran and came to live in the UK. Searching for a better life. Mohammed found himself running a business, a small corner store within the outskirts of east London. Aj's mother worked as a nurse within the NHS. Safe to say, he was born into a fairly normal, working class family that would be able to provide for him in his early life.
During his child years, AJ would do well at school like his parents asked for and was also religious, following the muslim faith by the book. He took well to the more creative side of education, preferring to study music than excel in maths or english. His parents did not really support this as they wanted him to become a doctor in his later life. Aj took this as resentment from his parents and it would come to haunt him in his later life.
During his teenage years, Aj became more aggressive and began to fall out with his parents frequently, he would get into frequent fights within secondary school as his anger would get the better of him, this would transcend into his grades falling. Upon leaving school, AJ found himself with no grades that could successfully get him into any sort of substantial job, he turned to drugs and crime in order to feed himself and also indulge.
Aj became involved in gang crime throughout london, and was eventually on the eyes of the police. He was hunted but Aj had a way of hiding. He wanted to flee the uk to get away from his life of crime and found out about a eastern bloc country known as Chernarus from a mutual friend. He took the money that he had and fled to Chernarus. Aj never stayed in contact with his family as they didnt want anything to do with him due to his problems. His resentment of his family has become a constant anger. He remained alone until the outbreak hit where he teamed with a group of people to help him survive.
Hanz was born into the Güldenstädt family, his father was a biological and medical scientist attempting to create new drugs to ensure they had a future as well as the people within the country. This profession was inherited down from past generations such as Haz' father and his father before him. Hanz' grandfather was a scientist during the war, he was forced by the German regime to look into the use of biological weapons in order to defeat the enemy. Safe to say, the allies won before any such weapon could be created or used. Heinrich, Hanz' father used to tell him the stories of his grandfather in order to secure a future for his son in the same profession. Hanz was fascinated from then on and particularly on his grandfathers work.
Hanz was a grade A student at school, gathering everything he needed in order to go onto further education , particularly biological science. Hanz would go onto university in order to study this, his father and mother supporting him on the way. Hanz would come away from University and proceed onto working within a lab that would study the effects of diseases on living organisms, this would be to ensure that they could create new vaccines in order to protect those that would become infected from various diseases.
Hanz obsession for his grandfathers work would come back to haunt him in his later years however, he would find the documents regarding the work found within his fathers wardrobe. Hanz would keep these documents closely in order to get an idea of what his grandfather was thinking at the time. He was surprised.
From the documents, Hanz began to indulge in finding out more about human anatomy and began to study in medical and psychological sciences, in order to see how the human body worked. He would continue to study for years to come.
Come present day and Hanz is in his adult years, he is still studying in medical and psychological sciences, in order to further his studies, Hanz travels to South Zagoria, Chernarus in order to talk to inmates within the Storozh Prison, this is when the Outbreak struck. Hanz has been by himself for a large portion of the outbreak, studying the infected from afar in order to find out what they really are capable of.
