  1. So now we know why the NHS has no PPE, CKN has blown the budget on moisturiser.
  2. Mine are. I am actually having real issues with my children at the moment and their dry, chapped hands.
  3. The daily figures are beginning to jump. I think we all knew this would happen but were just hoping it wouldn't.
  4. Very sad to read articles like this: Coronavirus: GPs 'buying their own PPE' GPs in parts of Wales are having to buy their own personal protective equipment (PPE), with some even asking schools to make it for them with 3D printers. That's according to a GP practising in the Aneurin Bevan health board area, one of the worst hit areas of the UK. And doctors often had "no choice" but to wear PPE more than once, which the GP, who wishes to remain anonymous, called "dangerous" and "unacceptable". Aneurin Bevan University Health Board has been asked to comment. On Wednesday, Sarah Aitken, the board's director of public health, said it could be "following Italy" and faces being "overwhelmed" by a rapid increase in coronavirus cases. "There remains huge concern within general practice about the supply of adequate PPE," the GP told BBC Wales, adding that the current guidelines are "globally rejected" by GPs who are "sourcing our own PPE with our own funds". https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-52079429
  5. Thinking outside the box from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland: First ever Aer Lingus flight to China takes off Under these most unusual circumstances, the first ever Aer Lingus flight to China has taken off. The plane left Ireland today and is travelling to pick up much-needed personal protection equipment (PPE). Yesterday, Finance Minister Conor Murphy said Northern Ireland had entered a joint deal with the Republic and would receive equipment as part of this. Between now and Tuesday, 10 flights will make the journey to China, and will bring back about €225m (£200m) worth of the equipment. It is much higher than the Irish healthcare service's usual €15m (£13.5m) annual spend. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-northern-ireland-52075082
  6. Now I've cleared a bit of space I must put up my punchbag. Do you know of any good resources such as you tube videos etc to train and develop properly? I'd actually like to start again with a bit of form and technique rather than just punching away for a 2 min rounds with no real technique like I'd have done previously.
  7. Is it really that important to shake hands? I really don't think it is.
  8. He was excellent and spoke in a way that was very clear and easy to understand. Interesting to hear what he said about flu and the fact there are now hardly any flu cases. They now presume anything with those symptoms is Covid-19.
  9. There really is no legislating for stupidity: Attention seeker who licked toilet seat and joked about getting coronavirus now has coronavirus A clout-chaser who licked a toilet seat and joked about catching coronavirus has reportedly done just that. The unidentified youngster gained internet notoriety after he filmed himself putting his mouth on the toilet as part of the ‘coronavirus challenge,’ which has seen people licking objects in the face of the global pandemic. The footage was later posted to TikTok That person has since reportedly contracted Covid-19, according to Piers Morgan. ‘You may remember also the other idiot, this is also in America, as part of the coronavirus challenge some morons are doing, went into his local toilet cubicle and licked the bowl,’ Morgan said on Good Morning Britain. ‘I think this called karma – he’s got coronavirus'. https://metro.co.uk/2020/03/25/attention-seeker-licked-toilet-seat-joked-getting-coronavirus-now-coronavirus-12454901/
  10. I've not heard anyone in the UK say it will be over in a month. Everyone is well aware this is going to continue for quite some time.
  11. Tell me about it, you definitely need to get away for a break
