    Coronavirus/Covid19

    I don’t know how surgeons can wear PPE for several hours. Glad they can though Anyway just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12192383/new-covid-mutation-more-infectious-spreading-faster-original-china/amp/ Remind me to do a early stock up of toilet paper Unlike a few months ago. I have realised at times it may be best just to listen instead of having an opinion Therefore thoughts?

    I am being flippant. A bit pointless if you ask me. The regulations should say must cover mouth and nose at all times, instead of face On public transport people do wear face masks/covering. Not to cover their mouth or nose but just to cover their chin . I will have more respect for you if you didn't wear one, I will then justify to myself that you have a medical breathing condition hence you're the exemption and not a selfish twat

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Watched the entire boxset of The Professionals on Blu-ray. The HD restoration made the quality like it was filmed yesterday. I became bored of the edits on ITV4. Some cut scenes can make you assume parts of the storyline. When you watch the uncut version, you then say to yourself ' now that makes sense' . I never expected to see Pierce Brosnan, Ruby Wax, Ben Roberts (Conway from The Bill) to be in the same episode of any TV show One episode the plot was so loosely put together. That from start to finish it was just one big assumption. I guess that story line, of that year, made the true dictionary definition expression of the meaning 'a gut feeling' Lots of retro cars. Some really nice Fords, BMWs (especially E21s). Also nice to see London scenery in HD from the late 70s to the early 80s

    The spooky thing about when I read Tim Brooke-Taylor. I had ITV on, they were showing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Just turned my eyes to the TV, and the next split second the scene had Tim Brooke-Taylor as the computer guy

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    I am aware of how this virus is spread. To add to the builders, it is also not clear: if they stayed on-site, had self-isolation at home, all lived together in shared accommodation etc. The Police officer at today’s press conference briefly mentioned testing. How do we know if frontline is not now being tested? My opinion is we need to give all front line and keyworkers our full support, with the caveat of they don’t abuse their authority. Asian countries for years have been using masks and other PPE with cold/flu symptoms. We previously have not been this type of country. Our priority is for PPE for the those that need it, not who want it. Famous name brands have changed their production lines to supply and cope with the demand - until supply is greater than demand. Therefore until supply outstrips demand, being at home is the safest option. Wasn't labour in Government during the first outbreak of foot and mouth. Anyway my opinion is: As this is an unprecedented pandemic, I am currently giving the authority certain slack. When this is over we will then have time to analyse what we got wrong, what we could have got more right, and right.

    One on my Uncles is a bus driver, and one of his colleagues and friend at the same bus garage, was one of the TFL drivers who sadly died from the virus. Yesterday my Uncle’s bus was stopped during the clapping (not sure if he was on a break), people went to the kerb and clapped for him personally. It touched him

    By the sounds of it, funeral directors are becoming overworked and may be finding it difficult to give the personal touch to families Unfortunately you need to go through the family sadness next week. Thankfully technology is there to help with no physical presence Lets hope the reproductive rate is dropping

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    Fairly sure that first responders are exempt from social distancing. Will be funny if they were not, and arresting someone: Police officer to a suspect: “I will use desensitising gel on my equipment, and leave my handcuffs, my taser, pepper spray, and baton on the floor. So if you attack me, you can use reasonable force against yourself”. Would be bizarre if fire crews needed to keep to social distancing rules, especially rescuing someone. The people who built the hospital, it is unclear if any of them were coughing or sneezing. As my understanding a mask will preventing spreading or receiving the virus from a cough or a sneeze, instead of person or surface contact. However and happy to be wrong with my previous point, but with the short amount of time of reconstructing the ExCeL into Nightingale Hospital, they are in my opinion, are heroes.

    Contains very strong language. This has a serious message, but also funny. This police chief of Uganda should be in charge of our policing (edit: not sure how to reduce video size in a post) Uganda's Police chief.mp4

    I just feel a bit conscious about my herd immunity comment. It was based on a few weeks ago before the science changed, and just with an example.

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    I am no scientist but the way I see things, until we have a vaccine then we are limited in what we can do, and one option is herd immunity. Isn't heard immunity what we use to do before vaccines, and used the antibodies and antigens in a blood transfusion to cure the sick. This also can lead to a quicker vaccine? I think they are trying blood transfusion in the US from someone who has recovered, and using their blood in someone who is ill.

    Is that because of the new emergency act. That the local council has more control over the arrangements? or it just happened that way?

    I am sure your Father-in-law and Uncle will understand why, that the 2 son-in-laws will be there in mind and spirit. Just out of curiosity are the funeral at the same time?

    Even Boris's most fierce opponents are doing nothing but sending him well wishes. It's nice to see that some things are bigger than party politics

    Apparently from a BBC reporter, he was on oxygen since yesterday.

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    Boris should have taken medical advice which is to rest instead of running the country. You can see how bad he is with his video tweets. He had pneumonia when he was younger therefore could be a underline condition (aware and unfortunately this does affect healthy people) Apparently his fever is still there. If he is told to rest now, I think it will either be Raab or Gove who will be the temporary PM. Therefore especially if Gove is PM, get well very soon Boris Hopefully Stanley Johnson will now stop with all of his thoughtless comments

    Coronavirus/Covid19

    A changed happened in me on Tuesday night whereby I just stop analysing all the 'ifs' and 'buts' of the virus. As I was reassuring people I know; and had a few arguments about the false information on WhatsApp etc - thankfully they have stop sending me their sh*t. To be fair to them I know they are scared and the misinformation reassures them, but I won't sit back and not correct it especially if they are someone who I genuinely care about I live very near to my parents therefore I'm staying with them. My Mum is considered to be a key worker, therefore been taking her to work because she doesn't drive. We may have less traffic on the roads but the driving standards have worsen. I could upload more bad driving from my dashcam for this week, then of the year so far. My company has been exempt with certain suppliers to do car deliveries for key workers (if they need a car). I am PAYE and Self Employed company director and I won't receive much through furlough, but hopefully they will sort out the gaps with directors who are self employed. To be fair to HMRC schemes like these take between 12 to 18 months to do. Therefore hopefully all the holes will be filled and HMRC just need more time, because they are working extremely hard behind the scenes. I am aware I can be wrong about the current gaps . My friend, his Mother passed away a few weeks ago and the funeral was on 18 March. There was no blood of Christ at the Eucharist, and we didn't offer the sign of peace be with you - meaning shaking of the hand. When we all said hello and bye we all did the elbow shake. It felt so surreal at the time.

    @AnilS not sure what to say with the double shock to your family. Take care during this horrible time

    If there was no lockdown this driver would have got away with putting his wife in the boot What a halfwit https://www.lep.co.uk/news/crime/police-stop-driver-making-224-mile-trip-buy-ebay-item-wife-boot-2521916

    I think ANPR won't work because there are too many variables (I know we all know this): Someone in the same household could be taking a key worker to work, because they have car problems (NHS are too busy to be worrying about a unfair fine). We are allowed to buy what we need from the shops. We can visit vulnerable people + all the other reasons Also too much admin for the DVLA to create a database to list every genuine reason or person

    They now say 6 months. After thinking about this a bit more, I think it will be about a year. As a vaccine could take between 12 to 18 months. The UK has donated the most towards finding a vaccine Also @535i Andrew glad you are recovering

    Want to correct myself. From what I have read it’s a bit like chickenpox, I guess. That some people of middle age will lose their immunity (antibodies), and can and do, develop it again. No data, but at the moment they say, there may be rare cases later in someone's life
