Here's where you can take her to REALLY feel loved. The M4 Junction 10 Holiday Inn.

Can i just point out that is even closer than my house to Willowbank Primary which was shut for a deep clean after a teacher returned form Italy with it. Also it is basically on an industrial estate with a view of either the countries most pathetic motorway (A329M), flooded water pasture or the Waterloo line

Football called off for a fortnight. England cricket tour cancelled. Unless RFL and Superleague follow suit, this could give our game a great boost by extra television coverage.

Apparently french and scottish RFU have halted all Union inc age grade and training as well

London Marathon postponed until October. My daughter will be delighted as she's in it and has done zero training.

And remember that we've not been testing people outside of hospital admitted patients since Wednesday.

Aside for research purposes, understanding the travel of the disease, and perhaps giving certainty to the majority of us who are likely to get relatively mild symptoms (assuming other outbreaks ring true for our turn), is there anything lost by redirecting testing resources to where they are needed the most, ie in a hospital situation when missing the presence of Covid 19 could be fatal (and also problematic from a staffing POV if too many staff fall ill)?  I mean I can't say I feel a sense of loss at not knowing for certain that I have Covid 19 as opposed to one of the bad colds that have been flying around my office since I started in the petri dish that is my place of work (still hot desking) but I was wondering whether there is any actual problem with the re-focus of our testing resources?

Da comrade.  


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

To be clear it effects those who are older or have other medical issues far worse then a cold.

There was a chap interviewed yesterday who had it and now recovered.  He said flu symptoms were a lot worse - except for the cough.  He said when he coughed it was like he could not get any air into his lungs and couldn't until he stopped coughing.

Ontario is banning events larger then 250 so thats it for the TWP.

I've not read the rest of the thread so I've probably been beaten to it but...

Does that include cardboard cut outs? ?

It seems the UK is now the only major nation that’s rolling back testing, even the very slow US is ramping up heavily.

One that impacts the folk I work with is a GP in Italy who died despite taking all precautions available. Our practices in England are getting rubbish protective kit in nowhere near the quantities needed. We can’t buy it in as there’s no supplies available so there’s little to be done now. 

Also, Care home staff, mostly on minimum wage, were told today by the government to keep treating residents who are infected. That’s a morale booster then.

the whole worlds mad, the human race is insane, such as yourselves would rather live in a world of conflicting ideals and false panic  than face up to real hard facts- its a way of self isolating and withdrawl  in itself I suppose, get over it and get out there , your a decent guy ckn but I doubt you would have ever inspired evil kneivel to jump more than one bus

The French seemed to be very proactive in this regard to requisitioning things like face masks and production.

Denmark has closed its borders for a month.

Norway is not far behind. 

Nine regional airports closed today ..is that an attempt to slow down the spread of the virus or cost cutting ??

This is the news we recieved at a meeting at work 

All who have been outside the Nordic countries are to stay in their homes for 14 days after arriving home to Norway, regardless of whether they have symptoms.

Travellers from countries outside the Nordic region who are not residents of Norway will be asked to return.

The alternative for these travellers is quarantine. Travellers with symptoms will be isolated.

This means that everyone presently staying in Norway and who has been in a country outside the Nordic region in the past 14 days is to be quarantined.

This policy has retroactive effect and applies to all arrivals since Thursday 27 February.

Due to the remoteness of where I am at and the fact we live on site (bit like Auf Wiedershen Pet ? ) we can continue working but the foreign workers who arrived last sunday (me and the others) are not allowed out of the gates or to work beside Scandinavian workers, as from today ,despite the fact we have worked side by side for five days now .

Very confusing because if any of us "foreign" workers have CV we would have /could have passed it onto the local guys in the past five days yet the local guys are still free to go in and out of site  !!!

We do not think this is what we should be doing.

By the government information we should be isolated, even from each other ,for 14 days, but hey ho we are only the workers.

We come out of quarantine on the 23rd  (or semi quarantine if you like ).

So this is the situation..

the guys that are due to arrive on the 22nd will be refused entry to Norway ,no ifs or buts ,

so I  now have the choice ..travel home after the 23rd and face the possability of 14 days quarantine in the Netherlands ,and then  I would not be able to return to Norway, so in effect losing my job ,

OR

keep working  as cover for the other shift ,until the restrictions are lifted, which could be two weeks two months or two years !!!

Lots of personal problems if the restrictions and threat of CV go on for any length of time.

Either I stay away from my family until the restrictions are lifted  or go home and give up on ten years of working in Norway .
