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

5 people hospitalised yesterday in “greater” Manchester I read. 

Bolton hospital is on Black Alert

And no, I'm not making that up.

This is one level below Red.

I'm told.

There was a report on Newsnight about Leicester last night, and how there'd been no uptick at all in their hospital admissions or deaths since April. And their numbers in terms of cases were well over double anything currently in Greater Manchester (per 100k).

It's a difficult thing to balance, given that by the time hospital admissions do start going up you're probably fucked. Equally though, if the threshold for going back into versions of lockdown is cases alone, we could be doing this over and over again.

Anyone who has intentionally broken or bent the guidelines is a dick. That goes for you if you went to and rammed out a beach when the sun came out. Went on a demo or counter demo. Round your mums for a brew or just generally fucking about. You are complicate in where we are now and not closer to the end of this. And folk saying they are going to "crack on" and ignore the regs are wankers.

F1 driver Sergio Perez has tested positive.

Those lads are supposedly under some of the strictest containment measures so that's not great.

Depends on the severity/intensity of the infection and who is being found as positive.

It’s mad that I can’t go see my mum and dad but am allowed to go get shitfaced in a boozer with a load of folk I don’t know. 

Ridiculous isn't it.

They actually don't know their arseholes from their ear holes.

I had a customer in Stafford ring me this morning to cancel our meeting on Monday. It's not a good look aparently to allow visitors from an area on lockdown.

Matt Hancock has basically shit in his hands, hurled it in a northerly direction and declared us all UNCLEAN

If we believe it is targeted at Eid celebrations and that community then why are places like Birmingham not also being locked down?

Can’t lock down the whole of Birmingham

Little old northern towns don’t Matter.

plus the hotspots up here have been specially traced back to Asian communities that wash their arses in the sink.

From a quick look on social media this morning it appears that it doesn't matter what the government says now anyway, they've made such a fucking mess of this that the majority of people ain't gonna listen to a word of it. People think they know best, and tbf there's not much evidence that Boris and Co know better. 

The conspiracy nuts are out in force n all, Ive just seen one nutter manage to link in something about them having a cure for cancer that is being kept secret from us all as well. 🙄

Nah. Many haven't been listening from the start.

Soldiers on the streets giving folk a whack might have changed a few minds, but we don't do that in this country.

So has it not always been unenforceable then ? It’s no different than before when we couldn’t meet another household so why is it different now?

There's gaps in the coronavirus bill. Some stuff requires more legislation to be passed before becoming legally enforceable, so is classed as guidance at the mo. If you have a look at the govmt website for example it says govmt will pass new laws to enforce the changes to meeting people in private homes and gardens, police will be able to take action against those that break the rules.

 

Its called secondary legislation

I think there is very vocal minority ignoring the rules. Most are trying to follow. 
 

I wear a mask at shops as does nearly everyone else. Been the pub once since March. 
 

I know mentioning Cummings upsets people but the Govt came out and said at that time the rules have a level of personal interpretation in them so hardly surprising some people are going daft. For us Yoof has his g/friend to stay over which we think is acceptable risk. 
Next Friday brother in law has just cancelled the ‘do’ for after the wedding as he lives in Kirklees. The stupid thing is ceremony goes ahead as that is a couple miles down the road in Wakefield.

And also what the overall strategy is, if there is one. At the minute we're neither committing to getting cases to low/zero, nor accepting that some level of increased transmission is inevitable.
