I was right thinking asda was empty because everyone went to the beach, spoke to someone who went past one today (harwich/dovercourt) and they said there were far too many there to keep a safe distance.
Except virtually teaching just wouldn't work
What about where the parents need to work kids can't stay home on there own

Government need to legislate for this too, where there are 2 parents there work needs to be arranged so one is home. they are allowing building sites to open later so workers can split the time to make it less people on site at the same time, so a good example is the people with the kids would work the later hours and be home when the kids are on the virtual school, the other parent takes over when they go to work. Not saying its easy but better than death.

They are using the kids to see how bad the 2nd wave is going to be, if not many kids get ill they will then put people back in shops and offices. The kids are being used as lab rats.
Bet the private schools that their kids go to not going to open?

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

There are many scenarios out there, good,bad & indifferent. People need to take control of there situation & stick to the rules as close as they can, this is obvious, but there are some who believe that doesn't include them for really one reason, selfishness. Bad times & all that bad without being too dramatic, what do you want to be dead or alive?

Yesterday saw an opened drive thru burger outlet in Elgin swamped with traffic that gridlocked all surrounding streets. Seriously!!!?? Are some people that desperate to put their lives & others at risk over a crappy burger? I can assure you the virus is up here as well. My daughter is a charge nurse at Raigmore hospital in Inverness on the front line, many cases & very stressful.

Rant over.

It is well proven that children and young adults have tiny personal risk due to the virus, that is beyond dispute now.
Some say that they contribute 2 to 4 % to the spread, though personally I have not read the supporting evidence.

We know the risk profile for others too, and it looks possible to manage the spill from school people to the wider population, in particular protecting particular vulnerable, and no one has suggested hugging them yet.

It is also well proven that a child may suffer immediate or lingering harm for every day of missed school for a raft of real reasons. If at all possible children should be at school.

That includes private schools of course, thanks for needless cutting comment.

No tolls on the A12 and dartford crossing is many miles from the A12 and doesn’t have toll booths anymore, you just drive through and it charges to you off your car numberplate and your dart charge account. (Online) has been like that for about 5 years or so

no its just back to normal, only half the country is back at work but them that are are not risking public transport.
If the government order more people back to work and school without safe public transport the whole country is going to be gridlocked.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

There is something very odd about this whole event. China was locking down Wuhan back in September. Foreign travel continued as normal.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ronavirus.html

Bat lady (who worked in the Wuhan military lab) gave warnings a year ago. She has vanished.


In January 2020 Chinese virologists gave out the genome to international scientists though at the time CCP were saying it had only been about since late December. No lab could have got the data that quickly. 2 days later CCP shut down all CV-19 research and ordered all samples be destroyed.

The western media all fell for the line about it being spread from bats to pangolins or snakes or whatever is the latest line from the CCP. Nobody bothered to mention that all of these are hibernating in mid winter so how could the virus be released in a wet market.


Something very dodgy is going on yet to date, our government have fallen for every trick the CCP have thrown out.

Got to this point In that post and learned everything I needed to know about the rest of the conspiracy theory.

It can take a matter of hours to map a genome, viruses are even more simple than people who read the daily mail so it would take no time at all for any virologist to be able to map a virus out and share it.

I see you’re buying into the trump conspiracy theories now....
