It’s not.

I appreciate you’re probably just joking, but people aren’t taking it seriously enough IMO.

475 Deaths in Italy last 24 hours and 4207 new cases .

You can look on google at Iran and see the massive grave yards , thousands passed away.

42 cases in Nottingham , 2 passed away r.i.p

Look at recovered and the deaths ,this is going to be bad .

That’s unfortunate but a lot of people will be on the same boat.

Lives are more important than anything else.

Stay safe out there everyone, and think of others.

Just letting you know I’ve also been to the pub today.


Then you are an idiot Jack. And an even bigger idiot for thinking you're being big and clever & boasting about it on here. I'd suggest you grow up & treat this pandemic with the respect it deserves.

Spot on. It's like a galloping horse. Think of it as pyramid selling. This time last week relatively few confirmed cases. Now it's 3,000 confirmed cases. Anything we can do to slow down the spread we absolutely should be doing.

Jesus calm down.

People have been sent home from work to “work from home” yet flock to Asda/Tesco in droves to shop. Are they idiots too?

Surely there’s more danger of spreading in a supermarket than a pub with a few folk in it?

Either a total lockdown required or nothing, I don’t get the inconsistency.

No they're buying food to feed their family. You, for needlessly going to the pub, are an idiot. Dont worry, total lockdown is coming- why you ask - because idiots like you don't listen, still socialise and help the spread further. Seriously don't go to the pub fgs.

Right okay.

Apologies to those offended but I still think the country needs a bit of consistency.

Do they need to tell you not to jump off a cliff? Or to put shoes on your feet when you leave the house? I'm afraid you're wrong on this one FTS. But you're not on your own, plenty of others are selfishly disregarding the rules.

Even in a total lockdown supermarkets and chemists will still be open, as they are essential.

They “advised” against going to the pub.

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.

You can do as you please, but don't expect not to be called selfish and don't expect the virus to stop spreading.

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.

People like you won't be arsed about this virus until you or a family member gets it. Then you'll be blaming the government for not shutting everything down when it's just common sense to not go to places unless absolutely essential

We live in a free society and as such can do pretty much what we want to within the law.
In an attempt to keep the virus under as much control as possible and crucially to help the NHS cope with the really serious paitents the government has issued guidelines.
Surely it makes sense to follow the guidelines. We all are having to make sacrifices and have had our hobbies and interests curtailed. These sacrifices are intended to help safeguard our and our relatives and friends well being.
I like to go and see rock and blues bands at a local venue. It's still open but Ive not gone. My neighbours are members of a local walking group. On advice from a walking association the walks have been cancelled.
As I see it a bit of disruption now to our routines is a small price to pay in order to survive this awful disease.

The problem is you see this as just your risk but it’s a bigger issue. I just hope you don’t spread it to someone more vulnerable and have to have that on your conscience, would it bother you?

Well I’d already been to the supermarket where there was several hundred ppl. Using a cash machine then Touching atrolley that has had hundreds of hands on it.

Apparently that is deemed alright yet going to the pub next door where there was about 15 ppl - the locals - isn’t deemed alright. How odd.

Our sports association cancelled a hike in Snowdonia. Seemed a bit of an odd move to me. Hiking is probably the safest outdoor activity going at the moment.

I’ll give you the credit of being on the wind up, for other people the advice is clear avoid unnecessary social interaction.

The supermarket is necessary as you can’t live without food. Most normal people can live without beer so would be deemed unnecessary.

It’s really that simple but it seems some don’t have the capacity to understand.

I agree. I thought it odd about the walking group.
I went up to the allotment the other day, thinking it was pretty safe space.
One of the other holders came up to talk to me. At the best of times he gets a bit close. However, I was fairly comfortable until he told me that he had returned from Lanzarote the day before.

Yes you get the virus by touching things but you must remember that you don’t get the disease until your contaminated hand touches your mouth or you pick your nose or rub your eyes. That is why you should wash your hands before your hand gets close to your head orifices.

Also being two metres away from folk means that any cough directed in your direction doesn’t get to you.

This is all about young people protecting their granny, unless you are desperate for the money they have left you in their will. ;)
