Going back 8 or 9 months there seemed to be a big deal about paracetamol being a dangerous over the counter drug to take and we should stick to ibuprofen. (It may have been the other way around)

The warning was that all the victims had used one type. 
 

Did this prove to be scaremongering or was there something in the rumour? The whole story seemed to just vanish.

They said paracetamol was fine .. ibru not..

 

It's been disproved..

However gotta admit when I had it in march, I felt worse after having ibuprofen.

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 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

Got one like that, another who's the opposite and one that's just a bit hyper.

He got attacked on a field near my house by a big dog not on its lead and every since if a big dog goes near him he trys getting in there first.

NHS on its arse apparently 

Lad I worked with on the Nightingales says they’re being told to prepare for patients later this week.

You keep saying this, have I missed something?

I was just going off what others had said . But Doesn’t matter as long as we have capacity to treat all those that need it that’s the important thing

There was talk of mothballing them a few months ago - we were even asked if we’d buy back some of the products we’d supplied. That never happened though.

What I do know is that people have suggested (on here) that until the nightingales are being used then there’s not a problem.

That bit I find baffling. “Let’s wait til they’re dying in their thousands and the corridors are blocked before taking it seriously and imposing draconian measures!!!”

But as long as we have a justification for breaking the rules it’s ok

Fire Service Estates Team were employed to create the Manchester Nightingale Hospital and then later used to dismantle it. I’m not sure if “dismantle” meant putting just the critical care equipment back into storage or completely clear all of the room dividers they’d used to create treatment areas but either way, the Manchester isn’t still as available as it was when it first went up.

2. We do know the damage they have caused; financially, other health, education etc. @birch-chorleyhas gone quiet, perhaps he’s just too frustrated.

 

I heard he took time off for a period of reflection after he found himself sticking up for gypsies 

It's certainly taken it's toll this pandemic

You would hope that these places will be ready to go in a heartbeat. I know the one in Glasgow is ready to Rock and roll

Hancock says over 2m injected last week so fair fucks all round. 
 

A bloke on our street late 30s has it. Last night 2 ambulances parked up there. Mass panic. Turned out next door had just had a baby in her front room !

I think its more about people not staying home, driving further distances for walks etc that wasn't happening in March.

 

I have a feeling they’ll impose further restrictions though not sure what they could be.

I guess closing more workplaces.

No-one needs a candle and a new washing basket from Home Bargains.

well, not after I’ve been for mine later.

I've not seen or heard that, but if true that's great. I thought we'd only done just under 2M in total, but if it was 2M last week, on top of the 1M we'd already done then that's ace

Yes that’s fair enough but suppose unless you get a breakdown of days/times of traffic increases it’s hard to tell

Must say apart from commuting times it’s very quiet around here

It’s 2million in total

But still a good start. If the army can help scale it up and really nail it, we could be in good shape by early March.

9:58 quote on here says nearly 2m last week. 

It sounds high especially given he said last week do not have enough doses to do that
