I don’t think this is coronavirus top trumps here. We’re all going through tough times in different ways and should support each other as best we can.

For the projector screen surround, obviously. You'll need Dulux Grey Steel 2 for the actual screen.

Was reading a pretty interesting article yesterday stating that not one single case of a child under 10 transmitting the virus has been identified. Not just here but in all the contact tracing done by WHO. More study is needed but that would ease things a lot if true and nurseries and primary schools could reopen. Or we could train up all the under tens as key workers.

There were more than one scientist on twitter yesterday debunking this idea that kids can't transmit the virus. Obvs twitter, so obligatory 'grain of salt' notice...

I'll save the link if any of them pop up again.

This wasn't one of the tweets I saw originally but has lots of interesting info:

My daughter lost her maternal grandmother to this a few weeks ago. She was elderly and suffering from dementia and in care.

My ex partners son lost his paternal grandmother to this last weekend. She was elderly, suffering from dementia and in care.

My ex partner is recovering slowly. She still has very little energy

Was feeling lingering symptoms as long as five weeks after symptoms started, but completely back to normal now.

People are going to think we'll start to go back to normal this week, and it'll all be over by July. Based on what he said, I don't what's actually going to change come Wednesday, other than sitting on a park bench.

As a speech, it was all over the place. He also drfited off into campaign mode, waved his arms out, and started spouting empty slogans, which was utterly inappropriate for a ministeral broadcast. Just as well it wasn't live. How many takes did it need?

So, it's safe to go to work and sit 2 metres away from someone but it's not safe for me to go visit my mom who lives on her own and sit in the garden with her?

Got it.

Seriously though, I bet there's a fair few people up and down the country that have had a shock that they will have to go to work tomorrow.

It was classic project plan silliness. The topic at hand is a very movable feast, but someone (?) wants timescales. So let's give them timescales and caveat it. Then the public can ignore the caveats.
