I live right next door to a natural park ,where normally i can walk for miles without seeing a soul ,but we have been told to stay within the confines of our own house ,unless absolutely necessary so i obey the rules ,they dont mess about over here .What i cannot get my head around is that we are told that our symptoms should not be much worse than a bad flu ,but in my whole life i have never seen a situation like this ,for ,and i m not trying to trivialise this 200.000 deaths in the world when the annual flu season claims that many worldwide virtually every year .Either we are not being told everything or its a panic like never before i really dont know

I took that on board and decided I would still go.

Unless I’m instructed not to go -which I haven’t - I can choose to do what I like.


The reason Boris has only ‘advised’ is because if he tells you to stop going the pubs can claim on their insurance.

As for going to Asda etc Jack like Jamie says it’s a necessary evil to feed your family. Plus how many pubs do you know the size of Asda? You could have 100 people in Asda & they’d be nowhere near each other. You could have 25 people in a pub all breathing/coughing over each other spreading the virus to each other.

Except its not 100 people in ASDA is it Dan. I called in after finishing work at 9pm last night, a thing I do every night when on afters, and there wasn't a pint of milk to be had, not a loaf of bread, not one egg, no pasta, no toilet roll, kitchen towel etc. There were only a dozen trolleys in the bay outside and the place was as full as any Saturday afternoon. The shelves aren't that empty at Christmas when I go in at that time. That hasn't happened with a hundred people in there, it has taken thousands in there all day. That is just as idiotic as going for a pint.

Work places are laying people off left right and centre yet Oak Tree Tesco have gone on an emergency recruitment drive. Even more people in there.
Flip, flop & fly, Mansfield till I die.

The news here said that if we didn’t social distance here there would be an extra 250,000 deaths and that’s why Boris changed his advice.

I took that as just in the UK and if you multiply that by every country it’s a lot of people.

Out of curiousity why does the coronavirus thing have the @ sign in front of it.

Is it expected to reply when copied in?

I wouldn't get too carried away, this drug what what I can read (& I haven't dug to any great depth) appears to be helpful in treating the pneumonia complications rather than the virus.

Wildly over stated I'd suggest. Trump trying to take credit for something that has apparently been doing the rounds for a while.

Millions more die of maleria and malnutrition in the third world and we never batted an eyelid.. Now a disease that is only dangerous to a very few in the wealthy cacooned West all hell breaks loose.. In a month or two when all this has fizzled out I hope as a society we all take a good long hard look at ourselves and become a less materialistic greedy selfish country.
How the hell only a couple of generations ago we lived with rationing and sacrifice to defeat the Nazis God only knows

Good point.

On a 'good' day 21,000 people die of starvation world wide. 9,000,000 a year, year in year out.

A powerful antibody which could neutralise coronavirus has been discovered by British scientists in the blood of a patient who recovered from Sars, offering hope of a treatment.
