No political discussion in this topic. That is complaining about a country, a politician, a party and/or its voters, etc

Corona research news!

 

"SARS-CoV-2 lethality decreased over time in two Italian Provinces"

 

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.05.23.20110882v1

 

The outcomes: The death rate is decreasing based on several potential factors, mutation to less deadly disease and most important doctors are getting better at treating it because they understand it!

Just on the treatment - it may have been on here or the Sunday Times article but there was a great trend in how doctors are getting better at treatment 
 

Hence I’ve personally advocated that if we just hold on a little longer, it gives the doctors time to understand it further

This was always going to be the case! In another two more months time we might be on the cusp of a effective candidate vaccine and workable treatments. The world has come so far in such a short time despite a lot of shortcomings, we're so fortunate to live in the scientific era that we do. 


Really is excellent news. If you’re correct, you’d hope as long as the vulnerable are shielded properly and the correct provisions are taken that we may well be able to function not too far from normal come the autumn, and even then not suffer a second wave! Fingers crossed and as you say, thankful we live in the time we do!

what constitutes a 'non-essential retail shop'?

 

Just seen they can all open from 15th June if meeting conditions in place.


Everything that isn’t Food,Drink, Hardware or Homeware basically 

 

So essentially every shop that isn’t open now excluding Hairdressers

This was one of my main reasons for wanting to go into lockdown earlier.

The fact that people in power are allowed to get away with such incredible absurdity, is why Trump(and Boris and Morrison) are where they are.... 

He also admitted they made a separate trip after his family’s 14-day period of isolation to Barnard Castle, a beauty spot 30 miles away from Durham, which he claimed was necessary to check his eyesight was good enough for the longer drive back to London.

 

:doh:  If ANYONE defends such stupidity... Trump et al are YOUR fault!

The likes of Wickes, B&Q & Homebase are already open. Ikea plan to open 19 store on June 1st as well. From listening to the radio on the way into work this morning it’s everything except Hairdressers, bars, pubs, restaurants etc. Hospitality industry basically.

The regulation Cummings is leaning on was put in because of domestic and child abuse in the home. To say to people who felt their children were not safe could leave. It was not because of childcare crisis, it might lead to confusion but that was what it was for. (Jess Phillips MP)

So it would have been ok if he gave them a whack first then?

Interesting news on June 15 for the other shops to open. I know M&S are keeping their staff on furlough until at least August so I’ll imagine that to buy clothes you’ll still have to queue through the food tills. Spirts Direct had a shambolic set up to start with so they’ll need to make big changes. Testing times still ahead.

Sadly for the retail industry, I've grown quite used to not spending anything other than on food and given my concern something like this might happen again.

 

Same goes for pubs and restaurants. I'm quite enjoying keeping hold of the money right now, given that I'm not exactly in the most secure situation. 

Sensible!

Agreed, checking my bank each month now results in stunned blinks instead of groans. Quite liking it.

So after the slapdown the gaffer received at the end of last week he's now practicing strict social distancing. 2 hours in and he's nowhere to be found. Good call, people still pissed. lol

I was getting bored witless with endless discussions of PPE, lockdown timing, tracking and tracing, etc etc.
 
After 40-50 pages of drivel over Dominic Cummings.
 
Can we please get back to endless discussions of PPE, lockdown timing, tracking and tracing, etc etc.    :)

He's being a bell and trying to get us all to agree to not taking anymore holidays for the rest of the year because we're behind on orders. 

 

It went down like a lead balloon. lol

Likewise. I have been wanting to save up for some time for a new bathroom, and am pretty much there now. We have been spending more on good quality food though, but with not buying food at work and eating out it's still quite a bit less than we would have spent otherwise.
