Well... after 66 days in ICU my sister's fella who was described as being as near to death as can be without dying.... has made it. He's home. Half the fella he was.... and the virus has ravaged his l

Well my sister's fella is making very small steps in the right direction. From being described as as near to death without being dead, he's now sat up, off dialysis and yesterday was breathing on

That would be ridiculous. There is no way they should get support if they proceed with that payout to shareholders.

well yes is my immediate thought.. then I think most of the shareholders will be pension funds of all types including private pension funds via whatever investment.

So whilst some individual like the Stelios its one matter but for future pensions of non public sector dividends has a massive impact on their future pensions.... so if all companies didn't pay those dividends we will, that is the government, be bailing out pension funds to a greater extent.....

I'm off work next week. Provided I'm still well, I intend to self isolate in a full head to toe outfit, and spend some time on my Ducati. 

Wish I could, I delivered mine to the dealers in Alton yesterday to make it well again. ?

Anyone care to clarify on this as the Mrs has got a tickly throat and is doing a few coughs here and there..
 

"This is a new, continuous cough and means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or having three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)."

Does that mean an hour straight or having a cough every hour and a half?

Also, what constitutes an "episode"?

An outbreak of the coronavirus that has killed 28 people in the West Midlands has been linked to a church attended by a worshipper who did not realise they were a carrier. 

 

Two of the fatalities have been connected to a church where a congregant had continued to attend services, not realising they had been infected with the novel coronavirus, the Times reported. 

 

What's that about HE does his wonders?

There is zero need to panic buy , there is no shortage or threat to supply lines . It’s pure stupidity , selfishness and irrational fear  that grips hold and has a domino effect . There was a guy from a toilet roll firm on telly who said they were laughing at this , there warehouses are packed . Sensible and measured sees you through but getting that message through is the hardest 

yeah then you get stupid.. not thinking questions.. from journalists just looking for sensational headline repeatedly asking questions as to are government prepared to introduce or when government will introduce rationing of food....

An impossible question for a government minister to answer if he himself doesn't want to cause even more mad panic buying...

It says the exact same thing on there.

What’s a “few coughs here and there”?

That would be a good thing to know.

Tap the green start now button if you or her thinks there's a chance she may have it. 

I've already done it. It's still clear as mud as to what "more than an hour" or "three EPISODES" means

Tickly throat, 2 coughs maybe every other hour. I asked her if she was voluntarily coughing to clear her throat or if it was some uncontrollable urge and she said it was voluntary.

Absolutely going to avoid FB if the cobblers I’ve just seen is typical of usually sensible people. Ranges from a government plot to (again) a bad cold. 
I stopped going on it due to falling out with people over stuff and see no reason to go back. ??

Advice from the radio last week was that a continuous cough is one that lasts more than half a day. A few coughs in morning, a few at midday and a few at night, would class as continuous by that definition.  

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!

It is not clear whatsoever what an "episode" is. If it's so clear why don't you enlighten me.

I asked on your behalf. It’s deliberately woolly so as not to be over-specific. If you think it’s a new dry cough, you’re caught by the guidelines whether you think it’s a new cold or proper COVID-19. Better safe than sorry.
