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

They'll have analysed the trend. There was a massive jump up over a week which shows exponential growth rate well over 1, which usually means it's likely to not go down quickly unless circumstances are altered. If they do fuck all and folk start dying again in 3 weeks, they'll be in for loads of shit. If they impose restrictions and folk start dying, they can say they tried and blame it on us.

But they can blame you because it is you surely?

It's them and us. They're responsible for passing on the info they collect on our behalf. They're responsible for the timing and implementation of restrictions and the overall strategy. They've got msssive resource that we pay for to help.

Amazing all the ballache one person coming back from Spain and not quarantining can cause

It's every Englishman's god given right to drink San Miguel in Benidorm.

It's in the Magna Carta

It amazes me how folk won't take responsibility for it. folk are not sticking to the rules hence its increasing. 

Too many folk have a reason why they don't need to do as they are told.

Presumably those who want a proper night out will jump on the train?

As long as the tracing doesn't show infections from Bolton bleeding out into other areas. If it does, they'll try and stop it.

As my wife has just advised!

We’re not supposed to go on public transport anyway?

There's no stopping me going 4 miles for a few beers in Adlington/Chorley.

I won't, as I'm not a twat (well, I am, but whatever), but loads of people will just make the journey.

Roadblocks.

Agreed, but do you think folk in Bolton are not sticking to the rules 7 times more than folk in Wigan? 

The reason why infections are on the up is because pubs have been open, folk have been on holiday, the weather is getting more preferable for covid spread, schools are open  more folk have gone back to work, folk are less careful, NW likely had a larger pool of infections, and a bit of bad luck. Its govmt policy and folks behaviour and luck.

Matt Hancock said the local lockdown in Leicester had resulted in a "very significant" drop in cases and measures there will be reviewed on Thursday.

Asked whether those in Bolton could travel to other areas to enjoy a drink at pubs or bars, Mr Hancock said: "Thankfully, what we've learnt from this sort of local action elsewhere is that we don't see large numbers of people travelling to nearby areas.

"We haven't seen that yet but of course we remain vigilant.

"I am sure the people of Bolton understand how significant this problem is - and we will bring in new laws to back-up the proposals that we've made today."

he's deluded

It has to play itself out, just needs to be kept at low infection/death rate as possible without resorting to full lock down, stop having house parties (Theyre shit anyhow) and if you go to a pub go to one thats got a covid policy in place and is enforcing it.

Yeah I get that but the problem is people don’t and it’s what’s causing it.

Bars, restaurants & cafes takeaway only and must shut by 2200.

is that it?

I don't know about anywhere else, but locally in Stockport when lockdown was first eased all the pubs had to stop serving at 22.30 anyway, still did during regional lockdown and probably still do though I've not been since things were eased - in any case, they have to apply for a licence to open later so it's not even up to them

so if tougher measures equates to shutting 30 mins earlier then great, crack on, go out earlier if you're that arsed

It's takeaway only, so no drinking in the pub. I imagine most will choose not to open on that basis.

If anyone isn't already. I'd advise taking vit d, and zinc supplements every day. It takes a while to build up and metabolise vit D and zinc helps its function, its harmless if taken in low doses ( they give you 20 times dsily recommended dose when in hospital). Obviously if you're already on meds or have a medical complaint, ask your dr before.

Zinc makes you horny so you may want to get a few copies of razzle.

Takeaways only have to close at 22.00. Pubs, restaurants close completely. Not sure if it’s immediate or from midnight today. Might have chance for last swift one.

Some pubs and restaurants have been doing takeaways so presumably they can continue that.

Spot on. Totally understand that we need to come out of full lockdown for a variety of reasons. But that doesn’t mean we can just go back to normal. There’s going to the pub and going to the pub. Had a falling out with an old uni mate who couldn’t understand why we didn’t want him and his family to come stay with us right now.
