According to the NHS letter I got  Wednesday, i'm at risk of severe illness if I catch it. Apparently I have to stay at home for "at least" 12 weeks :blink:. Well the wife don't drive and it's a 9 mile round trip to the  nearest supermarket. I will drive her there and have to sit in the car. So it's get there  tomorrow at 5.15am for 6am opening, so the wife can get in, grab the weekly shop and get out asap I guess :unsure:

I would check the opening hours as most supermarkets are opening later and closing earlier than normal.

Seeing that you don't live in Newcastle, it wasn't directed to you. :D

I know. Just a bit miffed. 12 weeks. I'd be pulling my hair out by then, that's if I had any ;)

Are supermarket deliveries impossible?

Or someone else getting groceries for you?

New meme going round on Facebook.

"18 people died in Wolverhampton today. TODAY. Never known anything like it in my lifetime."

I wasn't popular for pointing out an average of 500 people died every day in Wolverhampton.

500 * 365 = 182,500 pa

You sure?

Yes, my bad, messed up on my maths a tad :)

did 0.32% of deaths, should have been 0.0032% of deaths!

Thanks for pointing that out!

A relative who had been in Spain flew to Sri Lanka for a week then to london, plenty of checks in Sri Lanka but none at all landing in London.  Her main concern is that her cat is stuck in Spain for however long as the pet courier has not been allowed to travel.

That's one of the things that's surely gotta be addressed, people flying back into the UK from countries with a known outback of the virus should/must be tested on arrival.

So,instead of 500 a day it is on average 5 a day, and the post going round stated 18 had died in a day. That certainly is a jump.....rocketed, you could even say, although you probably wouldn't

Looks like Brazil has decided to take a different path, safeguarding economy and jobs first. 
We don’t stop making cars because someone died on the road, says their president. Very callous , but it will be interesting to see how they get on, a kind of control for what everyone else has started.
