Hmmm. Not so sure. Evidence?

The largest bog roll factory in the UK is in Manchester. 

They have masses and masses of bog roll in reserve and have no shortage of workers or supplies to make even more. 

People have been buying bog roll in massive excess for 2 weeks. 

There's no bog roll on the shelves still.

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

Given it's increasingly difficult to buy pasta, rice, bread, etc, does this mean as a nation we've collectively rejected the atkins diet? ?

It's not hard to come to the conclusion they want people coming into their locations more and more often, it's a dream come true to the big players. just on the off chance there's some bog roll or some paracetamol or some pasta. Finding none and buying anything / something else instead. Then coming in again and again repeating the pattern.

Just spoke to next door they are both teachers at the same school and have been told they’ll have to put their kids into nursery as they will both be in. When clearly the obvious answer is one of them to stay home with their kids while the other goes in. 

But if they are the only two who are able to keep the school open, that will be the best option. At this current time though, I agree.

We aren't currently testing anyone with the antibody test. We need to start that.

There is an argument. The people in charge will make errors. 

That we are not set up for testing when we would have been in a better position several years ago is notable. But, what we should do now is not a straight forward issue.

The antibody test will be a quick and simple blood test. I have swathes of staff self-isolating wha are desperate to return to work. I’ve no doubt this is the same in the NHS. A good number of them will not have the virus. I say it is in the interests of the country to remobilise these people as soon as possible, as a high priority.

The UK loses 10,000 people every year to the flu. Given that it's primarily a winter infection, we can estimate 500 per week for 20 weeks.

According to the Daily Mail today, we have lost 240 to Coronavirus in, say, 2 months. That's 30 a week. The UK is, on the face of it, completely over-reacting.

If you have symptoms you should self isolate and will not be tested unless you are admitted to hospital.

This morning on teletext it was reported that one football club had tested ALL staff and players.

One rule for one and one for others.

Can someone justify this please.

cant go to the pub but its ok to queue in the chippy wtf?

Said exactly the same..... 

Some were whinging that wath tap was doing outsales. They weren't letting anyone in the pub. Card sales only. Bring their own container.

Those complaining about it being open had just spent ten mins queuing for fish n chips in the shop next door

The club will have paid for it to be done. I daresay someone somewhere will take your money to test you.

People need meals. Supermarkets are letting us down big time. Should maintain a 2m minimum spacing in queue though.

A lot of what you post is explained by the implication that you read the Daily Mail.

It's true there's no cure for stupid but stopping reading that would mitigate a lot of your symptoms.

Don't have much time for Sturgeon but a good line from her today: if your life feels close to normal right now then you're doing something wrong.

Because, as I said earlier, those in power don't realise how 'thick' folk are (or for Bob8, they think they're brighter than they are) and believe they'll act sensibly and rationally in the current circumstances. Full lockdown will be coming sooner rather than later because they can't.

Is this the test that is currently being trialled in the UK on humans?  Or is it another test?  I'm getting confused with the reference to testing.

Incidentally, Germany, that mega tester, is - according to reports - suggesting that as the number of cases rise, testing itself is becoming less and less useful because they cannot keep up with the number of cases.

My instinct is that the majority of people are being sensible and taking everything on board.  Some folk are terrified (like my mum).  As ever though there is the minority who couldn't give an piece of excrement and they, as ever, are ruining everything for the rest of us.

The government have just ordered 1 million of these. They are not currently in use. It is a pin-pr1ck blood test.

There's a good thread here on "panic buying", which seems to fit with my own buying habits.

 

The issue is the extra 10% being concentrated on a relatively small range of long lasting items and essentials.
