Cooming towards me, a local police car, two officers, both with their masks under their chins.
What are the odds of them being from the same household?

Yet, during lockdown, all driver training is off, despite us wearing masks. Perhaps the uniform is anti-viral?

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

I am an NHS worker (medical secretary). It really does frustrate me to see people being so blaze about the rules and blatantly disregarding them. Hopefully though, there will now be light at the end of the tunnel with this new vaccine.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

The best thing one can practise in 'mass media' and 'politician' distancing.

This article from the Executive Editor of the British Medical Journal summarises the situation, titled 'COVID-19 - politicisation, corruption, and suppression of science':

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Youngest grandson got sent home from pre school with a cough and daughter told to call 111. he then had to go for a test and now has to stay home and wait results, pretty sure he only coughs there because they have the heating on full blast,

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Thinking about it, the number of cold callers at the front door has reduced to almost zero. A small bonus.
The one caller we had, just before opening the front door, I started to cough loudly and repeatedly. On opening the door, there was no-one there.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Eurgh, from December 1 Taiwan is bringing in regulations that you have to wear masks in all public places, despite us having no infections here for over 200 days.

It doesn't make any sense - and people are not very happy about it.

Came back negative by text just now, as suspected.

A paranoid response but completely justifiable as Covid 19 is unpredictable.

Remember - just because you're paranoid doesn't mean it's not gonna get you.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

My wife was speaking to our daughter yesterday, a charge nurse, and she said that a man with covid 19 traveled from London on public transport all the way to Raigmore hospital in Inverness. Nothing booked accommodation wise. So now he’s probably infected people on his journey up here, and now in a bed being looked after by hospital staff who should be seeing to other people.

Seriously you just couldn’t make this up.
