In each case they rejected "covid" being conveniently entered as the cause of death because it was not the cause of death. They were then told that the body could be released quicker if covid was entered but they refused as this was not only dishonest, innacurate and unethical.But that is not the point.
I am not sure that Boris reads anything at all. He can't see because his eyes are blinded in the headlights like a rabbit.
Anyway let's hope this turns out well for all our sakes.
No more from me on the subject. I have a Fiat to fix!
Same here family member with cancer died and had covid put down on the death certificate

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

My uncle (93) was extremely ill with COPD looked after in a care home. But he was a classic Covid victim. Ill for two weeks, seemingly began to improve then suddenly passed away two days later.

Many of the "precautions" would make sense anyway just for cold and flu season:
  • hand sanitiser stations
  • wash your hands before eating and drinking
  • don't touch your face if you can avoid it
  • stay away from people if you've got symptoms (the number of people in previous years who'd "soldier into the office" while coughing and spluttering as if that was "virtuous" is amazing)
  • Wearing a mask is a cultural adjustment, but in many ways is pretty good neighbourliness, especially e.g. on cramped public transport in winter.

Many argue "well flu kills X people every year anyway, so COVID19 isn't so bad". Whatever about the conclusion, we might want to ask whether flu really needs to kill X each year? If a more thorough flu vaccination programme and some cheap precautions like those above can reduce X to e.g. (0.7)*X, then why not do that? Even if the result is a few hundred / couple of thousand families get to have just one more Christmas with a loved one.

I'm completely with you on that; I just don't get why they would want to jeopardise their own friends/colleagues/workforce!

I'm forever telling people that come in to work that are obviously ill, to go home, and if they don't , I'll arrange for a higher rank to make them to go home!

Your comment on mask wearing becoming a cultural adjustment I thought was absolutely spot on, but I still see many people not wearing face-masks when and where they should be

some places often the ones selling food the staff are on zero hours, if they dont work ill they dont get paid, and then dont get more hours as a punishment for not going to work. Its the bosses of these places i hate, making people work contaminating all their customers.

Ah yes, I get what you're saying Dave; I didn't really consider that scenario.
In my case, all of us are aircraft engineers on realatively good fixed salaries - they're are coming in for work with colds etc....which in effect, given your scenario, is an even worse 'crime'!

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Schrump has just come out of the Military Hospital and returned to the White House.
Do you think he really had Covid or was it a red Herring to take the heat off the questions about him not paying Tax for 10 Years.
It's a bit like a Dallas Episode and JR full of Bxxxxxxt.

Wasn’t it just. It would be very hard to fool everyone and involve people to such an extent to pull that off. No question though, Trump will use this to his advantage and milk every last bit of this circus.

Same as usual, we get a few imported cases as Taiwanese return home - but they are always put straight into quarantine so it's ok.

The Taiwanese are still worried about an outbreak though, so still need masks on public transport, government offices and staff in retail have to wear them (although customers do not, only in a few places ~ ikea, carrefour and b&q to name some).

They also have this stupid rule that you need to wear a mask to enter a club, however you don't need to wear it when you're inside. I asked about this and they say it's so that if the police ask, then can show them CCTV of people wearing when entering ....

But I really really have "Taiwan cabin fever" now - I just want to leave sooooooo badly. It's wonderful and all that I can live a normal everyday life here, but being in one country for 8 months really isn't normal for me at all. I've never been here for l longer than 3 months and even that is usually pushing it for how much I can take!

If I didn't have visa issues, I would have left ages ago, but on my visa situation now, if I do that, I cannot return until most likely next year
