  1. Boris in Intensive care...Lets hope he makes it through.
  2. Absolutely right I believe and probably another good reason for wearing a mask...even if it doesn't prevent the infection it may reduce the initial viral load. I am surprised masks are not more readily available here. In my opinion the government should have sent some kind of mask to every household in the country. It's also important symbolically...it's very easy for some people to ignore all the warnings and pretend it's not happening but if all they see around them are people wearing masks...they are constantly reminded there is danger in the air we breathe. ====== STATISTICS (added in Edit) > HOPE INDEX: Growth in Recoveries vs. New Cases Mar Hp: #Cases: #Chg: #CHINA: C.Pct: Critical: -%-: Death: Recovs: %chg: Active: Non-Ch: #chg., %/d.

  3. It all makes the figures that came out of China look like small fry and increasingly hard to believe.
  4. I imagine that was his stick to beat the Government with and after he got what he wanted he changed his tune.

  5. I was going to blow a fuse about the half marathon and then I realised that was 2 weeks ago before the lockdown at the same time as the Cheltenham festival had 70.000 racegoers in attendance just up the road.

    COVID at HOME... Staying Home & Coping

    The epidemic in NY is becoming biblical as a Doctor begs the public to..." Stay at home " :
  7. Never let a crisis go to waste... If there wasn't an agenda to begin with I am sure they will find one...and it usually involves robbing us and putting the money into their friends pockets.
  8. Lockdown...What lockdown ? I think it's going to have to get more serious than this. I have jusy been out for a walk...it's a beautiful sunny day here...17 degrees and clear blue skies...I couldn't resist it. There were people riding bikes ..walking dogs..couples with pushchairs..joggers and shoppers.. There is nothing wrong with all that...quite legitimate within the terms of the " lockdown " Reduced amount of traffic around and no school kids ... several buses and no passengers...who would want to get into the confined space of a bus ...it would only take one asymptomatic infected person breathing aerosolised droplets into that space and... boom ! I thought I was pretty aware of the risks but still it is hard to keep 2 metres away from anyone the minute you leave your front door...I squeezed past my neighbour on my way out ( I think she's from Poland...quite nice but has a boyfriend ) and I thought that simple act of stepping outside and squeezing past her could in theory have infected me with airborne droplets ... It's almost impossible to avoid such minor levels of interaction without shutting yourself away and only going out when there are minimal potential contacts and I guess that is why vulnerable people are being told to stay at home and not go out for 12 weeks...and why such strict quarantines have been imposed elsewhere in Europe. I expect things to get much more serious in the coming weeks because this just isn't going to cut it.
  9. Some interesting stuff on herd immunity..antibody testing and reinfection relating to Covid-19 in this video :
  10. I've got enough for a couple of weeks now so I will be limiting any outside contact to a minimum This thing kills quick...what puzzles me is how some can brush it off and others are dead within days Boris to address the nation tonight.
  11. The sun is out..so are the people... The supermarket shelves are full again... and London has fallen... I think they'll have to go into lockdown shortly because hospital admissions have exploded Still reasonably under control in my area but a worrying cluster has developed in Hampshire around Winchester
  12. There is so much disparity in the way countries record cases I don't think it's helpful to compare the numbers. Perhaps it's more meaningful to compare the number of deaths but even that is clouded with suspicion...when you look at Italy's death toll compared to China's...Can we really believe China got off that lightly. The UK is only recording cases that are admitted to hospital for treatment so anyone self isolating at home with mild symptoms is not recorded and Korea is testing and recording anyone and everyone it can. Then you look at Germany's figures and scratch your head at the death toll which according to Matt Hancock ( UK health minister ) who spoke to his counterpart in Germany is due to the fact the people most affected in Germany were young fit individuals who had been skiing in Italy but there is some suspicion they are using a different method of recording the cause of death and then you have the lies of Thailand and Japan...nothing out of Thailand for weeks and then an explosion of cases as if someone has just said we had better fess up...makes me wonder what is going on in Japan too with the PM there still insisting the olympics will go ahead...no incentive there to be straight. No one wants to be top of this league.
  13. No potatoes.. very few vegetables...no milk....no bread loaves...just a few bread rolls.. just one or two pre-packaged ready meals and a very limited amounts of tinned stuff...most of the freezer cabinets cleaned out. Baked beans all gone. No toliet rolls and it's been like this for almost a week...No one stocking shelves so there is obviously nothing in the backroom. As far as I am concerned there are food shortages here now and tonight Boris effectively shut the country down announcing all bars restaurants clubs gyms etc are to close from tonight and the Chancellor has promised money to support business. I'll survive but there are many self employed that will get diddly squat and won't despite all the fine words from the Chancellor and Prime Minister.... The rout has begun...it's every man for himself.
  14. Sterling is in meltdown along with all currencies as they rush back to the Dollar. The economics guy reporting on the BBC last night actually looked scared as he explained how while the BOE was cutting rates the cost of borrowing money in the money markets was actually going up. I'm convinced if this continues we are going to see Cyprus like bail-ins or possibly something worse. I can't help thinking some of those remainers who were promising us armageddon if we voted for Brexit and making jokes about waiting for all the older generation to die off...telling us that the planes wouldn't fly...and it would be a catastrophe have got exactly what they wanted. Be careful what you wish for.
  15. I think you are referring to this :
