Saw some bloke excitedly shoving the last 3 packs of 4 bog rolls into his basket in my local Co-op last night. Called him a knobhead and he looked sheepish, but carried on anyway.

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

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

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Question -

what are the rates of infuflenza and influenza related deaths in china and Italy in any normal year?

and could their death rates be high because they aren’t used to getting flu?

Im just pretending at the moment, looking at a blank screen and pretend tapping my keyboard, and waiting for updates from the DFE regarding how we move forward with this years exam results.

From next week im in work on a voluntary rota, College will open Tue, Wed and Thu, they just want key staff in to keep the place ticking over and making it accessible for vulnerable Students, those who have proper shit home lifes and going to School or College is a release and a safe place. Will probably work 1 or 2 days a week, im happy to do it as long as i remain intact.

But goes back to my question 

regarding schools how do they police who’s parents are key workers and not 

most could tip up yeah in a key worker off you pop

Highest rates in Europe normally ('flu deaths, Italy) - even counting yer Kosovos and Albanias etc.

Speaking of which...

The news that ale stocks are running low is really sobering news.

In fact this development has led me to think the pollen count is high today, or this house needs a good dusting. Very concerning and worrying to me.

They didn't even ration beer in World War II (some WWII lads on the piss, pictured below).

As a related aside, in Astley Bridge Asda at 9pm Wednesday - the booze aisles had been ravaged, ale especially  - no Guinness, Becks, Heineken etc. but, sticking out like a sore thumb, an untouched stack of crates of Carling, even terminal zombies retain a modicum of taste it seems.

That is what some staff are asking. Honesty is the key 😏

I've heard that question asked loads. They're missing the point entirely.

A more pertinent form of the question would be "How many people have to spend a few days on a ventilator to recover from a normal influenza that we already have a vaccine for?"

?? It varies year on year, depending on how effective the flu vaccine is in any particular season, how many people take the vaccine, and the weather. Question is irrelevant.  Because we've had continual seasonal flu for years, healthcare systems have been built with this is mind, so if well funded, they can cope with the fluctuations in seasonal flu numbers to a certain extent. lots of people still die of it. Its the effectiveness of the system (general public health/vaccine/antivirals/support systems) that is the most important factor . 

The problem with Covid 19 is that it is new, and we don't have the infrastructure to deal with it. The last time we had a pandemic like this was in 1918, when healthcare systems weren't developed . NHS has only been around since 1948. We haven't prepared correctly for this, partly because we haven't had to do it before, and partly because it would cost Trillions of £ which we have spent in other areas. 

The countries affected by SARS in 2003, China, Hong Kong, Singapore had a head start on us, they've done this before, and thats partly why they've dealt with it in a better way so far

The Coronavirus Bill, which will be passed next week, gives the government the ability to rule over who can enter or leave any premise in the UK if it fits their criteria of unreasonably increasing the population risk to virus spread - they will be able to warn, fine and detain those who break the new laws. If loads of people exploited the school rules, I'm sure they would start to apply this.

My sons school sent an email last night asking for parents to reply if there child is one that should go in and to provide details of employment. Not sure if they will actually check up on that though

Something not right about the number of deaths in Italy, wonder if these poor folk could have flu and corona virus?

It's going to be the same in every western country, possibly until the effects of social distancing, testing etc start to kick in,  4 or 5 weeks down the track, if they work.

If its gets a hold in countries with poor medical and support services, it will be much worse, and we won't hear about the figures until later on in their timeline - I'd be surprised if there aren't already vastly more deaths in the likes of Pakistan and India

If we get through to autumn without a large % population immunity, or effective antivirals it's going to come back until we have a vaccine.
