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

670k official deaths, plus all the ones that haven't been counted. Wouldn't surprise me if you could double that just with China and North Korea real figures. North Korea 25m population, 1 case (a guy that escaped)

also read Vietnam, from a population of 95m, had something like 400 cases and no deaths depsite sharing a 900 mile border

they put it down to a quick and heavy lockdown when Wuhan only had 2 deaths

plus they've been there and done pandemics before

Only 20 cases in Laos. More in Blackrod

blimey, you would have thought with all the poverty, lack of hygene and general grimness of living conditions, there would be hundreds of deaths there. I'd have thought Laos would have quite a few as well.

Haha

Given Dirtrod is one of the nicer parts of our borough, it is a sad indictment of our home town. ☹

I do miss the sauna/steam room treat at the end of a gym session but the thought of it especially steam room seems a bit grim at the moment.

Been pretty dead so far back at gym, might take people a while to want to go back into an environment like that.

Hugely different up here. Went to a farm shop for veg. Kinell, had to wait outside until a trolley was available. Trolleys dictated numbers allowed in shop. Huge tub of hand wash outside and wash for trolley handles. Signs everywhere, floor arrows, and not a person in any shop without a mask.

Far more stringent generally and still staff outside some of the bigger places controlling numbers. Far better adherence from the public.

Reflected in case numbers. Jimmy hasn’t been perfect but she’s done a better job for sure

Like that when I go in the co-op near us. I'd say its about 75-25 in favour of none wearers but yesterday I was the only fucker in there with one on. I ended up feeling the dick head for having one on.

She's done well, but there does seem to be a greater willingness and respect amongst the public.

Doesn't matter whether people think the powers that be have done well, they still should conform to the basic risk reduction methods.

Perhaps it is different in the big two cities, I don't know, but in Dumfries and Galloway with small towns and rural communities it certainly is noticeable how folk stick to the rules.

Was the first time I've been in one since it became the rule. Happy I did as there was a couple of grubby looking bagheads in. Bloke on the til wasn't wearing one too, just gloves.

Just been corner shop no masks and too many in, Nice guy but the local scrotes take the piss and he flogs them a fair amount of Stella & special brew so he won’t rock the boat

but no doubt this is like most places it’s not worth the hassle for some
