Funnily enough when I stocked up earlier, Corona had the least availability in Tesco cases wise.

Probably so the other cases don't get scared.

I suspect they have succumbed to the hysteria.

I always knew Corona as a brand of fizzy soft drink. My favourite in childhood was the orangeade version. I discovered recently that they went off the market twenty years ago.

This bug is 6 times more infectious than Measles. It's 10 times deadlier than the flu.

Don't know how the math works out for England, but 80,000 Americans died from the flu back in the 17-18 flu season.

I think that number means we're looking at: 80,000 times 10 = 800,000 times 6 = 4,800,000. That's a lot of bodies to dispose of.

This bug ruins your lungs. Wanna live with that? If you think you're sick ... seek medical care right away.


None of this is true.

Dude!!!

ASDA is a riot all the same, might be nice to be able to purchase some bog roll, or I'm going to have to start wiping my arse with all these Covid 19 pamphlets.


I was in the local Morrisons today and there was ample everything.
Some shelves seemed a bit emptier than usual bit there was still product there.

I'm not worrying about bog roll....Cheltenham is on this week and I've been buying The Sun - its racing coverage is really quite good and compliments my online studying.
It may not be as smooth and efficient but I'm sure I'll get some sense of satisfaction out of using it that way if the need arises.

I've got a bit of a cough and sore throat....but I'm putting that down to too many B&H's.

My daughter is a theatre nurse in a relatively large local hospital.
She said there are specialist teams being flown in tomorrow and only Emergency op's will be performed and all staff are going on a training day with these specialists.
She also told me that every spare room/space is in the process of being adapted for treatment.
Seems there are expecting quite a sharp rise in hospital cases.

I'm hoping good old Northern Bitter and Brandy proves effective in keeping it at bay.

I'm old enough to remember fizzy drinks in large family-size bottles, before drinks-in-cans were on the market.

I think the little cans of Schweppes were the first ones. I remember the Benny Hill advert;

Shopkeeper; "You know they're selling Schweppes in cans now?"
Benny Hill; "In Cannes? Yes, they're selling all over the world!"

Yes levity aside, god bless our beloved NHS.

I really hope that they manage to cope with the expected associated problems this pandemic may bring about.

I think our much maligned NHS will deal with this pandemic at least as well as any other country's healthcare system.

Lets hope it once and for all quells all talk of back door privatisation etc.

My Grandson is gutted his school hasn't been shut yet.....

Well, lets put it this way I'm not looking forward to Easter Holidays, becoming a month, if that happens, but it might be prudent if we are honest.

They cost a fortune to entertain when they are off school as well weans that is, God bless grandparents ta boot considering the childcare that will ultimately be required.

I was at the Doctors today for treatment on an longstanding medical condition.
Over the years I've got to know some of the surgery staff to varying degrees.

During the treatment the healthcare assistant who was treating was making the usual small talk asking me about my Grandson, what was I doing today, blah blah blah.
I mentioned how the surgery seemed quiet and the car park, which is usually packed and difficult to find parking space, was almost half empty.
She said that earlier in the week there seemed to be a rush of people wanting treatment etc but that had dropped off quite dramatically and that even regular patients were cancelling.
She had no explanation for this, neither do I really.

Whilst there she asked me if I was feeling ok, when I replied that I had a slight cough and ongoing headache she took my temperature, blood pressure, blood sample, checked pulse and a swab from my mouth. I have my blood pressure checked regularly but it wasn't scheduled and blood samples taken a few times a year, again this wasn't due.
I've only had a swab taken before by the police.
I have suffered with cluster headaches since I was a teenager.

When I asked her why she was doing it she said she had been instructed by the practice manager and then asked if I minded.

To be honest, I'm more concerned about my ongoing health issue and hope that if I do get COVID-19 that it wont affect my ability to fight it.

But it simply is what it is and we do what we do.....I wouldn't just give in to anything.

Life goes on.....meal and lots and lots of drinks with some friends who I haven't seen for far too long tonight.

Preliminary theory;
Full surgery, of course, would have been people thinking they might be infected and double-checking.
Empty surgery= People have decided they are not infected, but they're still nervous about meeting the first group.

I had a routine B.P. test on Wednesday, which is when I saw the notice, but there were no extras.

I did go into my local Morrisons again and I've never seen it as busy, not even at Christmas times.
There were long queues at every single checkout, the self-checkout areas was absolutely bedlam.
I only had 4 or 5 items.....couldn't be arsed to wait that long and I was getting very irritable.

I dumped my basket and went to my local cornershop where i bought more or less the same items for nearly twice as much.....but there's no way I could have waited that long.

If it continues like that then I can see food items running out.....and tempers getting frayed.

I suspect when I tell the other half she'll ban me from shopping. Which means even more time on my hands....looks like the golf course or pub?
Can't really spend any more time in the pub so it looks like I will be spending some time trying to get my handicap down.....but then again, the 19th hole was always my downfall back when I played golf up to 4 or 5 times a week.

Boris is now saying 60% of the nation will be required to become infected with Covid 19 so as to build up a herd immunity to the virus.

That's around 39,864,000 people and will equate to quite a few dead bodies.

I'm not sure what kind of plan that is but I'm thinking it might turn out to be something to worry about.

Especially given the state of the NHS and what the doctors and nurses are saying.

The plan or rather lack of one is rather mental imho.
