drive your car to the carpark and someone will come out to meet you in there.
Where we live this scenario means something quite different. :D

Carryin on as normal, need to earn a living and council will post out their bill in the next couple of weeks for keeping the place running, keeping the lights on, providing the Police and employing contractors to pick up the food litter along the roads that the under 30s throw out of their cars. Don't think the council will be sympathetic if we can't pay council tax due to self isolation. It's a flu bug. 50,000
uk deaths in 17/18 due to flu. Didn't hear the scare stories then.
UK deaths from the flu 17/18 = 26,408. Under 12,000 in 15/16. 28,000 in 14/15. See diagram 37, page 51: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... -FINAL.pdf Those figures seem high. The average in the US each year is only 30,000. Perhaps they have more flu shots...

Personal experience today. I was waiting in the Doctors surgery for my 10 o’clock appointment (eventually seen around 11:10ish), and no, not CV related but something else. There was a mother with her young son (St Michael’s infant school pupil) and the boy had a cut on his forehead. They’d been patiently waiting for a while (they were there before me) and the mother looked as though she’d been called from work. Anyway, about half a hour in the boy stood in front of his mother and sneezed (you could see it coming by his facial expression) followed a few seconds later by another sneeze. The boy I could forgive but the mother just sat there looking at him making absolutely no effort whatsoever to catch the resultant spray either by telling him to put his hands over his nose or catching it herself.
Typical British response, a couple of us looked at each other and gave a :roll: and raising of our eyebrows. That’ll teach her!

My point is, just because your child may only be 6/7 years old and looks ok it doesn’t mean that he/she can’t have the virus, albeit at a very early stage.

The population density is much lower in the USA, so the spread of flu is restricted.

Apparently, sales of corona beer have dropped in the US because our intelligent cousins believe the brand is related to the virus.

Trump, the most intelligent of all, and a teetotaller, has stopped knocking back his 0% per cent Corona ;)

I once heard the only thing you could believe about the news was the "Greenwich Time Signal" pips and the football results.

Interesting comment on the radio tonight that said about 373 "confirmed" cases, but then adding that "many" have fully recovered.

So then, does that mean 373 CURRENT cases or 373 cases in TOTAL since the outbreak? Little bit less dramatic in the latter interpretation then if people have recovered.

18 of the 373 have fully recovered.

I think 75% of the population of Herne Bay are over 65 and not had one reported case yet.... We are only past by Eastbourne, who probably have 96% of the population over 65........ Not had any news from there as yet.... Yes it is very serious, but sitting around worrying is not going to change things. I'm more worried about our league position.

Three Leicester players in isolation. Wont be long before games are behind closed doors, be a real shame if the Merseyside derby is affected.
