Wonder if they are testing more people? I'm on leave currently but had a message that we are closed for 3 weeks so won't be back at work until after Easter, office of over 600 people so makes sense.
Germany were testing 4 or 5 times as many folk per week as UK are /were.

Germany has 25k ventilators with another 10k on order.
UK has 5k ventilators and a twitter appeal from gov ministers for folk to build more.

Germany started the whole social distancing before UK did. Germans also generally appear to be better at following the "rules" on it.

A tad chaotic, and I can imagine this being replicated all over the UK.

Our company, still uncertain if we are "essential" and accessing this 80% seems less than straight forward.

So, sent home, asked to take a couple of days holiday to ensure we get paid for this week and give them time to clarify the situation.

Seems reasonable to me.

It's officially PARTY time. :guinness

It seems you would be happier, although I doubt that's possible, in ANY other country in the world. :byebye

Yep, we were and still are unprepared to control the virus. Advising people if they had symptoms to self isolate but didn't have to contact 111 was and still is a huge mistake. Without identifying potential cases, confirming and tracking contacts the longer then the longer we will be in the shit for. Why experts are supposedly puzzled doesn't give me much hope. Need to get in front of it as quickly as possible and be proactive rather than reactive. Much more testing required and tracing contacts. What is expected to be closer to a 100,000 cases in the UK is still likely to double due to supermarkets, public transport and human behaviour.

Wondering if cutting the grass would count as exercise  ?

Good to see the binmen are still working. 

Glad I did a shop yesterday since it will likely be like Xmas eve today. 

Just back from doing a week's shop. Busy but not mobbed.

Supermarkets are starting to look like normal again but there are still gaps in pasta etc. and there's not a huge amount of each thing like meat.

Most shops are closed.

Greggs are still open.

Absolutely loads of pensioners out there.

Why shouldn't they be?

Apologies, thought you were indicating they shouldn't be shopping.

Our local Morrisons, I'm assuming this will be across the board, have an NHS hour between 7:00am - 8:00am, good idea IF these workers can make it at that time.

Still think this group of people should have the facility to leave a shopping list to be picked up the next day, more flexible. 

Going to go down in a couple of days just after 8, get a few things we need.

It takes more than 2 weeks to start seeing the effects of a lock down. Look at what happened in China. 

The people dying today in Italy caught it more than 2 weeks ago (pre-lockdown). Some people even take up to 2 weeks before showing any symptoms. Then they spend multiple more weeks after that fighting it.  

Each lockdown is specific to the area it affects

Wuhan is a massive and congested city compared to London

and don’t forget that the areas where Covid 19 propagated from are very dirty wet markets that will be a nightmares to clean

every area will have it’s own tale to tell on how effective it’s lockdown has been and over what time period

I don't trust anything Icke says, as he's either a lunatic, a disinformation artist or a charlatan trying to fleece gullible people. He always seems to mix the plausible with the ridiculous. What I will say, is that The Powers That Be are looking to remodel society and are using climate change and possibly pandemics to do just that. This is a tyrant's wet dream - curfews, etc.
