So I told her to just stay at home for the time being until restrictions are lifted and I will manage her care myself. There are still people that seem to think this situation is not as serious as it is. I have been shopping and to the post office today and made sure I kept as far away as possible from the shop staff. At the p o, I practically threw the money on the counter for the postage,then apologised to the counter clerk saying I hadnít intended to throw it, but was just trying to keep away. She was actually grateful and said better that than come too close. At the shop I handed money over at arms length or placed the money on the counter and stood well back. When I go to mumís tomorrow I have protective gloves but no mask, so will have to use a scarf instead and not make contact with her, although I do need to take her for her daily exercise so she will need to link my arm as she canít walk unaided.
Richard.--Those restrictions.--I think the 3 weeks will soon become 3 months then maybe 6 months or more.

Without a vaccine then with all the hope in the world this virus will run and run if the 70,000,000 population needs to become immune.


The current three weeks will do NOTHING.

I popped out for a loaf of bread while walking the dog earlier, and the amount of people in the local Co-Op handling stuff and putting it back was astounding.

Choosing my loaf from the back of the shelf, I then made a sharp exit........this will become a Darwinian exercise where the people who are best designed to fit a local environment survive.

The amount of stupidity and false bravado being displayed was cringeworthy.

Heh ho
