Not advisable DJ.  Too much worry could put you in an early grave ......... 

 

I forgot the smiley Lizzie....  Obviously not smiling about her illness.. but about my alleged tendency to panic.

Something on Newsnight.. didn't catch who was saying it.  Apparently Dorries became ill on Thursday..immediately recognised what it was because she's a nurse and it's a 'very distinctive cough' and she's now on the mend. 

Miraculous I reckon....:rolleyes:

If they haven’t given the place a deep clean yet, Lizzie, they will now! I am sure your hubbie will be OK, assuming he avoided using the ladies loo. ;)

The report I saw last night had Dorries in The house of Commons, at her Saturday constituency surgery, at no 10 with other Ministers and the International Womens day representatives and she only realised she may be ill Late Monday and was tested and later confirmed on Tuesday.

 

Contact tracing has been done by P.H.E who found that Boris and other key figures were not exposed for long enough, pose no risk and need not self isolate.

There may be some people who will have to such as her aids etc.

Found a video on internet to make a protective mask. As we have all been informed the masks that you find around ( if you can find them) are no good because they are not fine enough to keep bacteria in or out. The chemist on this video explained if you want to be sure that it's protective enough pour water into it. If it soaks through, bacteria will too. He showed how to make a mask from grease proof paper and then poured water into it and it stays. I set to and made 5 of them and it only took about 5 minutes or less to make them all. Won't insist but if you need instructions it's so easy.

Well I’ve just been into our local pharmacy to get repeat prescriptions ordered before we go on our hols next week.  I’ve bought 2 ‘proper’ masks for the 10 hour flights, bit pricey at £9.95 each and certainly not very flattering but we might be pleased we’ve got them.

I would find it difficult to contemplate going anywhere apart from my immediate environs in the present health situation.

Been booked a while jonab and not been advised not to go.  Who knows, in the next few days we may not be allowed to leave the country but meanwhile I am looking forward to some warm sunshine.

So..  While China appears to be flattening its crisis by imposed quarantine and 'Social Distancing' and while Italy is trying similar..

 

...We in the UK are 'dealing with' CV largely by ignoring it in the hope that it will go away...

 

700+ cases in Milan.. so we have 3000 Milan supporters in Liverpool today for the match.  I've been in the Cavern Liverpool on match days and chatted with Dutch, French, German and other Continental supporters, along with Aussie Rugby supporters.  That's not counting the other folk from all over the World who come in and out all day every day. 

 

You couldn't make it up.

Cheltenham yesterday, where half of Ireland must have turned out, I can report no masks, toilet facilities, I did think I was going to die in the crush, hand washing, yeah right, use your imagination, happy to report I’m up for work, bright & bushy tailed for my half marathon, sold out Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, told our owner to keep away.

Keep calm & carry on! :crazy:

Presumably none directly from Italy due the the restrictions on movement of Italian Nationals and very limited if any Flights out of there?

Why would 3000 Milan fans be in Liverpool to watch them play Atletico Madrid?

DJ it won't go away it's persistent. 

.  I'm so angry that football matches are still being held. What's more important football or life and death of the population. Also how the hell did Italians manage to get into Liverpool? All flights out of here are cancelled. Maybe they've driven up but what controls are there when they arrive and see a foreign targa. Something's wrong somewhere. We're trying our best to keep this disease under wraps but what is the U.K. doing?

I think the government has their heads in sand. Germany only a short, short while ago said " oh we don't have anyone infected" them ....boom ! suddenly they were frightened it would spread and it did.

Wake up and take notice because one day in some way someone you know will either be infected or near someone that is infected.It can happen very easily as I can guarantee with my daughter. Her vet , she visited 28 feb is now in a dangerous condition and is on oxygen. Just think about how quickly he infected others and how many they could infect others. 

I know I've been a bit hasty in writing this post but until you are in the midst of it all you don't realize how it affects your life. Now we had a new decree last that is putting a stop and lockdown on so many other businesses. Restaurants and bars are now closed altogether, we are advised to stay at home and only go out to food shop and collect medication any other outing we must have an auto certification to show why and where we are going. News is showing us various cities that there isn't a soul around. We are desperately hoping that this lockdown will work as it has worked in China.

Listen to what your government tells you to do hoping that they get their heads around the correct way and realize that it won't go away.

Speaking of quotes.

Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.

Ok.  In reply to all.  A typo on my part.  it was indeed Madrid fans. And it is true that Madrid has reported 700+ cases of CV.

 

There was local TV discussion about it last night, with local fans saying, in effect 'we're at the other side of the ground well away from them'.  Also no doubt true that a fair few will be living in the UK anyway.. (poor sods.) but those who did travel from the Madrid area no doubt mostly flew in.. and we all know what aircraft cabins are like.  Add in that fans traditionally tend to visit local places of interest before the match.  Such as Cavern Club, assorted pubs,  Docklands attractions etc., etc...etc., etc.

 

Work it out for yourselves.

Despite the decree of last night it looks as though things will get even tighter.

Emmanuel Macron is making a TV appearance tonight to update the French restrictions during the current situation.

 

It looks like the Cannes Film Festival (12 - 23 Mai) will not go ahead neither will MipTV https://www.miptv.com/ 

 

The Monaco Grand Prix (21 Mai) is still being prepared for although there is a very good chance of it being abandoned or, at best, postponed.

 

As mentioned before, these events are of enormous economic importance to the coastal towns and cities down here but, whatever, better to be safer than sorry.

 

Our own little Fête de l'Oranger is as of now still being advertised as going ahead but it is almost certain to be cancelled.

Reading that just shows me how much of the French language I've forgotten. My passport's expired. I don't think I'll bother to renew it, there's lots of the UK I still haven't visited.
