    Coronavirus/Covid19

    From family in Germany, It seems that they are clearer in establishing the cause of death... In the UK, if you have CV19 then that is what you have died of, in Germany, even if you have CV19, then there are chances are that you may well have died of something else... Especially if you are elderly. In short, you have died with CV19 not of it.... They also, as already stated test more, so you can see that when playing the numbers game it can appear that for the number of Germans with CV19, less people die of it..

    I would argue that if they are hardened walkers, then for their ages may be fitter and healthier than many of us younger ones and are in better shape to fight off the virus... It could also be their view that it is better to go out fighting than hiding away at home. Out on the hills, they are unlikely to meet too many people..

    Not for me thanks but I have discovered that if I sit a frozen ready meal on my new5G phone and set the alarm for four minutes it does heat it through nicely..

    They are going stir crazy and believing everything that they read on FB... I'm being hounded my buffoons who genuinely believe that 5G phone masts are causing pneumonia and it is a government cover up as contractors are out in their hundreds putting up more masts to kill more people... Fortunately it is usually a friend of a friend called Sharon or Tracy who is telling me to get on to Youtube to educate myself...

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    I feel desperately sorry for the self employed who cannot work at this time, especially those who have only just recently taken the leap and are now up shit creek.. Just for once, I find myself in a fortunate position at the moment as I have extensive PPE to allow me to attend breakdowns and emergencies. Inbetween I have the heating for two homes to complete... I'd been putting them off for months as it isn't really what I enjoy doing but I can tip up on site knowing that there will be no one else there and just do my thing...

    A great breeding ground for the Virus are care homes... They are run for profit and as such have minimal staff for the inmates so much of the work that they have to do cannot be done unless corners are cut. Add to that many of the permanent members of staff are off sick, they are being run by agency staff who are given minimal or inadequate ppe... My other half went to cover in a specialist dementia home in Harrogate last night, 20 beds on her floor, two staff on a 12 hour shift, no breaks... The majority of the patients had the dry hacking cough and fever, one gentleman died on her shift but according to the duty manager, no one has corona virus because there is no proof of it...

    You were trying to push your political opinion... This is not the place.

    That's the problem with modern phones... They have the possibillity to record your every cough.....

    At the risk of being called a racist, but many Central Europeans have a very Blase attitude to this outbreak... The Leader of Belarus has made no provisions for the epidemic at all and has publicly stated that the virus in nothing that vodka and time in the sauna can't cure...

    If folk are keeping their distance from you because you are wearing a mask, then I would argue that it is working well.

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    I'm stocked up with heating spares and have equipped myself with respirator and protective clothing so that I can sort out the heating for folk who are infected or self isolating..I'm sure it scares the hell out of the customers neighbours... Obviously I can visit up to 10 customers a day the gear is designed to protect the vulnerable in the event of me having picked up something nasty through the day though at the moment the bulk of what I am doing is in empty houses working on my own.. I think that the nature of a virus means that the majority of us will be infected over the next year or so, as has been suggested, it is possible that a fair number of us have already been infected and have recovered.

    Crikey! I had never seen that before... I guess that I have been a Plumber too long.... Either that or I'm Jeremy Clarkson..

    Time was that the Astramax van was the fastest vehicle on the road... It didn't matter what you drove or how fast you drove it, there was always a Dove grey Astramax with a tartan flask, several weeks supply of the Sun driven by a Plumber whist he ate a doorstep butty 3 inches off your back bumper flashing you out of the way...
