I’ve just been to tesco to fill the car up as was on reserve. Whilst there thought I would pop in to the store see what it was like. 
 

I had a look around for the posters advertising the see how much stuff you can ram in a trolley competition. I couldn’t see them. Just stood there looking at some of the cretins and shaking my head 

can somebody please answer me has there been a directive that supermarkets are closing at lunchtime today and there is no more food supply? Have I missed something?? Cos I really cannot compute this shit and the behavior and stupidity of folk 

Burn them, with fire.

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve just had a letter off the daughters primary school about the closure.

The reverend has also sent a letter. Now I’m not a particularly religious chap, but the letter itself has just absolutely floored me.

The rev. quite rightly mentions that this is an event unlike anything they or their parents have ever faced. And that they may be scared. 
 

Brings home the magnitude of what’s happening. I can handle it but the kids are going to get scared. 
 

Dusty in here now.

Gay.

 

n.b. no offence to the gay community - who are no doubt much less gay.

Owner of newsagents near me said he had a old bloke (late 80s or so) in this morning struggling with a bloody suitcase stocking up. Probably seen all the hoarding wankers plastered over the news and panicked. Poor sod.

Quite the ripple effect.

 

 

 

 

Hang him, with rope.

I don't know mate. I'd say it would take longer than 12 weeks though. The virus isn't going anywhere and we won't have a vaccine by then. It's possible the weather might be a mitigating factor - but then we'd expect it to come back next winter. Just can't see this being a quick fix 

I also reckon it's more widespread than even the top estimates with a higher percentage of people being either asymptomatic or with really mild symptoms. They'll do antigen testing soon - and I wouldn't mind betting they'll be surprised how many people have already had it but not realised.

Heard the bit about malaria drugs and some other drugs, sounded positive, at least as a treatment stop gap until vaccine could be developed.

but, genuine question on the weather issue that people bring up, if the nicer / warmer weather affected it, why would it be spreading so fast in countries that are having the type of weather we can expect, ie Italy and Spain are probably already having the temps now we will have on a nice period of weather and why is it spreading in Australia, South America etc ? just can’t get why it would be and always thought that it wasn’t the weather per se that caused colds and flu to spread but more that people were inside in closer proximity to each other in the cold weather ?

There is no point looking at the number of confirmed cases as an accurate assessment of how many people may have it. It’s been said above, it’s just not reflective of the reality. I know of a number of people here in London who are in self isolation having developed symptoms and who are quite likely to have it. I know people who have tested positive for CV. Here in the smoke, it is an issue that really is affecting us.

Fair enough , but we won’t be expecting many days over 28 in the near future either  tbf and the nicer weather that’s coming here that is giving people hope of slowing it will be the same (ish ) as Spain now I’d imagine , so it probably won’t have any effect 

be hotter than that in some places it’s spreading though 

heres hoping those drugs do work and the antibody test kit they were also on about

Thank fuck those Hollywood celebrities recorded a video of themselves singing 'Imagine' whilst self-isolating in their mansions. I didn't realise how serious this shit was until I watched that.

Disfigure them, with easily obtainable caustic agents.

Here's a morbid thought

Most of those that die from here on in, Corona or otherwise, probably won't get a proper funeral

A mate of mine is an undertaker. He literally finished the embalming at grenfell a couple of week ago. Now he's charged with clearing the non infected dead from the hospitals. Doing free of charge. 

 

Needless to say, he's busy

Trump suggesting here they have a drug that's been used for malaria that could work.

That would be some find.

Mentioned it yesterday. Chloroquine (or Hexachloroquine).

Ebola drug Remdesivir also showing great promise.

Sorry for my ignorance if I’ve missed it on an earlier page. But just seen the Photo of the army trucks taking the bodies of the 900 (or so) that died in northern Italy over the last 48 hours to crematoriums in the south of the country as the north is now full. 
If that’s not enough to say to people - stay away from the pubs, restaurants & gyms. Isolate. Social distance.

Don't worry everyone, radio stations across Europe are having a synchronised rendition of YNWA tomorrow at 7:45am our time.

I honestly initially read that as, and thought you meant, YMCA, which I'd have been up for

But survived up to 37c fine. And lasts in air at that temperature. Don’t think warmer weather saves us. The antibody test might though. If loads have it then we know they've had it and are immune and life can start to return to some form of normal.  Plus drugs are showing to be somewhat effective.
