Some pretty interesting new research coming out tracing the origin of the virus.

Pretty much puts to bed the recent theories floating about that it was made in a lab. Also, it appears it was more likely to have originated in intensive animal factory farm than the wet market. Turns out scientists have been raising the alarm for years.

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

Not a bad article that, obviously I don't know how true it is, but no good can come, long term, of intensive animal farming I'm sure most of us would agree.

 I think generally though only the insane and conspiracy theorists really believe it to be a man made thing, that has been unleashed into the world.............unless of course we're talking about 5G infrastructure, because that could be what's causing it

Aye - please open the schools!!

 

What are schools actually doing over here?

Daughter has to produce a video lesson and then be online 6 hours to answer questions from her class

Seems a lot less organised over here

 

I do agree though, schools HAVE to return, one way or another

Without schools, many can't return to work

We have a site in Wales, we have just been instructed we cannot reopen that until 5th May. 
 

which would align with maybe another three weeks lockdown announced tomorrow? 

I still think many of these dates aren t so much, untils as not before

If that make sense

As I’ve said before it’s 4 months minimum til schools reopen up here so there must be a plan somewhere

I really really hope we are - 4 days in a row under 800.

 

Radio just said its over 800 today, now all the numbers are in. I didn't hear the exact number they quoted though

Home schooling is shit. It benefits no-one in reality. Being honest, I was doing maths with my 13 year old lad earlier and the online tutorial was teaching me as well as him. I'm shite at Maths.

The kids simply cannot afford to miss 3 months. 

Keep cinemas/pubs etc closed by all means, but schools need to go back as soon as possible.

Well the person to tell us is @only1swanny as he will be getting the heads up when they are reopening well before anyone else I would imagine 

and from what’s he’s said there is no sign of it? 

The unions have written to the Department of Education asking for a plan or guidelines, nothing has come back as yet.

The unions would more than likely take a large hand in trying to prevent it as it's simply too risky. 

A school the size of the one I work in, has 1500 students, and it's impossible to follow social distancing, Primary school would be even worse and harder to follow. 

I don't expect to be back before September.

Most people I've heard talk about it seem to think no way are schools returning before September.

As pointed put above, what that does with regards to child care, who knows, as you'd hope the parents are back at work before September

Let’s see how that pans out 

my concern is that If it’s September companies simply won’t get going again 

once they open workers will be taking more time off for childcare it will have a massive impact 

Plus the chancellor will have to throw more money in for meal vouchers 

then you have vulnerable kids 

so on

The College i work in has 3500 students, although the upper 6th will have left and are not taking exams, so won't be in. 

That leaves about 1800 Students on Campus, too many to Social Distance. However Sixth Form Colleges won't be the problem as they are account for only the 16 to 19 year olds, secondary and primary schools like Swanny says will have a decision to make, i can't see them returning until September, its no use them going back with about 5 weeks until the end of the summer term, we may as well prolong it until September, but that will have a knock-on effect in other employment sectors, the Government have a difficult decision to make regarding this.

Rumours doing the rounds among teacher folk is early June.

Would make sense to me. After what would have been the May half term. Last 6 weeks of the year.

Allows childcare providers that would usually run through school summer hols to open too.

I honestly hope they do, 

but at the same time, putting 30 kids in a small classroom is asking for trouble, 

I'd imagine partial school openings first

year 10 and year 6 for transition time

Possibly year 7, as 11/12 is that age where parents might still feel the need to stay at home..

I have no idea with Primary school,

My other half works with the DfE.

Absolutely no inkling of schools opening

New cases of Covid-19 have decreased, thats the good news, hopefully the downward trend will continue, however i expect the Government to air on the side of caution and play it down, they will want to see decreases over a longer period of time.

Looking foward to Laura Kunttsbergs Questions today, i wonder what pile of shite she comes up with.
