My 16 year old heard on the news that Coronavirus was cured by heat and everyone was moving to Aftica if they could get a flight but from Friday all tne schools would be shut and from Saturday there would be a lockdown with police at the end of every street and it was because the Chinese eat rats and anyway did I think he could get paid for his paper round on Thursday as he wouldn't be allowed out on Friday?

1,000 times Ived said to you all. PREPARE. Your government is not prepared and will not care for you.

So, now you know. Just grab stuff...anything always when youre out. But, this is a good lesson for all.

God Bless everyone....

I'm near Bolton. Seen the odd vehicle on the motorway this week. But a few laying low there today. I suspect most vehicles will be moved overnight

I'm in East-Lancashire where are you? Y'know, I thought I heard something early Wednesday morning, but didn't go check to see.

Not heard anything about why but your right, where I live in the UK there are a lot of elderly carrying on as if nothing is happening. The other half's grandparents are refusing to stay isolated even though she's offering to shop for them.


Bloody entitlement!

Perhaps this IS how to reduce the population...weed out the selfish and stupid by letting people be who they naturally are.

I imagine the UK will do similar to here in France. A downloadable and printable form that must be completed if you wish to leave home.

Shopping, animal care, personal care, healthcare, etc etc is OK but no socialising or leisure just for the sake of denial and personal entitlement.

Divide and conquer.

Edit to add: there is a 135 euro fine for anyone not following guidelines. Money always makes people think twice. Sad.

Based on our experience here in the Six Bay Area counties with a shelter in place order, Id get a head start on your toilet paper horde.

Yup. Like it says.

It's not a problem and is a good way to ensure personal responsibility.

If it IS a problem for someone it proves how selfish they are.

I will plan my trips out and do all I need to in one hit. It protects ME aswell.

Its strange the lack of posts in this thread trying to set the record straight and inform you all that you are wrong. Wish you guys the best of luck over there.

Reading the news this morning and seems to be more about a lockdown Army readies 20,000 troops (although take the sun with a pinch of salt). Again seems to just mention London so maybe the plan is just to lock it down first with the rest of the country at a later date. We'll see!

I'm also reading plans to shut down underground stations starting today (Sky News) which sounds like the beginning of a full shutdown.

20,000 troops really doesn't sound like enough for the whole country. From reading a few sources online, there are probably 10,000 supermarkets which doesn't really leave any to assist on the streets. Wikipedia recons the army have 80k regular troops and 30k reserves, some of which will be overseas. Perhaps they'll need to involve more of these for a countrywide lockdown?

There were 1km queues near me to get into our local Sainsbury's at 7am this morning which is a first. Could be to do with the first hour being for over 70's but still would seem excessive. Luckily I don't need any supplies at the moment...

True but that's not really the point is it. That attitude is what gets the infection spreading and overwhelming health services to the point hundreds of thousands would die. This is about being prepared to be locked down in your home and having adequate supplies for you and your family.

the TFL shutdown of the underground = only certain linesand the stations on them that only serve a single line

and its closed to the public

you can bet your arse that there will still be units running on the " closed " lines - 24 / 7

Don't wait to 'hear' information, you must seek it out;


Peng Yinhua, a 29-year-old Chinese doctor, planned to marry his fiancée on February 1. But as the coronavirus outbreak grew, Peng postponed his wedding to help treat patients in Wuhan. He died of the disease on February 21. Peng was one of at least eight healthcare workers who have died of the virus.

Another young doctor, Li Wenliang, died February 7, leaving behind a son and pregnant wife. Li, who was 34, had been censored after sounding the alarm about the coronavirus to fellow medical-school alumni.

These are just two examples of young and healthy people succumbing, but there are more if you look.
