  1. Just unacceptable. No words...... Their cards should be marked for putting EVERYONE at risk, for blocking the path to services for those who really need it, not just Corvid 19 cases but other illnesses too.
  2. Skool parties too. One skool party can involve 20 pupils and 5 teechers
  3. What a great thread. Only one problem. My wife is now trying to find who started the thread as she claims she can't get near the TV remote now.
  4. Indeed. The title is the give-away. Not "What might the RFL going bust actually mean?" Not "What could the RFL going bust actually mean? But "What DOES the RFL going bust actually mean?
  5. The situation in care homes is awful. Not pleasant reading at all. BBC News - Coronavirus: The grim crisis in Europe's care homes https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52094491
  6. Inside Out Yorkshire and Lincolnshire BBC 1 TV on at present. Young lad being interviewed. He'd been tested for Covid 19 and it was clear. He said he was tested because his mum, who was an NHS employee, Nurse I think, had been tested because of her work. Just thought I'd mention that. Clearly some people are being tested. Not enough, sure. But not as bleak as the print, on line and broadcast media would have you believe.
  7. I think it's called "Gocha!" reporting. Keep asking the same stupid question again and again and again in the hope they can catch someone out or trip them up, or exasperate the presenter into telling them where to stick their stupid questions. Not one, ever, does anything but snipe.
  8. Just interested if GJ knows how much he's been paid since he became PM.
  9. By how much do they tally? As a lover of links and an eternal seeker of truth, how much has the Prime Minister earned from the Daily Telegraph in 2020? Since he became Prime Minister?
  10. Here is a link to the WHO technical guidance for those with a genuine interest. https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/technical-guidance/infection-prevention-and-control
  11. You know what thought did, I assume.
  12. Indeed. Its highly infectious too, hence the need for separation etc. And yes, even if it were just one hospital in the country, it would need addressing. Why then, do so many seem to imply a general shortage of everything, all the time, everywhere...except of course in other countries. . Hmmm..let me guess.
  13. Yesterday was Sunday here. Today is Monday here. From tomorrow, the figure released by the Office for National Statistics will include cases where patients die in their own homes, as well as those who are being treated in hospital at the time of their deaths.
  14. Hard to believe, I know, but there are some people who love to point out that every other county is doing things better than we are. International comparisons are important to them. Just had a regular call from the GPs INR clinic. For the last 18 months I've self-tested and phoned the result. The clinician is, though, still doing face to face appointments for most people. She says they have been told by PHE only to wear a mask if a patient has symptoms or suspicion of Covid 19.
  15. from The Independent, Change in counting of UK deaths Official figures for deaths from coronavirus could be pushed further upwards on Tuesday by a change in the way numbers are gathered. From tomorrow, the figure released by the Office for National Statistics will include cases where patients die in their own homes, as well as those who are being treated in hospital at the time of their deaths. Boris Johnson’s official spokesman said: “Daily figures are for those deaths which take place in hospitals in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. From tomorrow, the ONS will be publishing weekly data for death registrations which would include people who die in the community. “It would be necessary for a medical professional to be satisfied that one of the contributory factors for a death was coronavirus in order for it to be registered that way.” So not the same as France,
