I see Gove has said that the schools will stay open.

 

Interesting to see what happens there as Gove is usually a good barometer of what's going to happen, generally it's the opposite of what he says.

 

I'm doing regular tests as part of the ONS study - the first one came back after almost a month, the rest have been between 1-2 weeks. I assume (possibly a big assumption) if it was positive they'd have been in touch quicker, I guess your neighbour has to think the same. (mine have all been negative btw).

Agree about Gove 100%,  can't understand not locking down the biggest gatherers, Schools and Universities, what comes first, Education or saving peoples lives, Boris you have got it wrong AGAIN!  :roll:

Back in the years after the 2010 coalition people were posting about how many people lost their lives early due to austerity.

We now have more debt than since the war, so in a couple of years will people realise that locking down will cost lives too? Less money for the Police, NHS, social care and education because of the lockdown. I did support the first lockdown, but the NHS should be able to cope now.

We opened the Nightinggale hospitals, were they just political, because we havnt got the staff for them?

We wouldn't need the Nightingale hospitals this time around if the Goverment lockdown properly.

Universities in particular. Students gather from all over the country, and aren't known for obeying the rules. They will have been returning home for the last month, spreading the thing all over. 

Universities should have stayed closed as soon as a second wave was suspected and gone on line - not difficult. But then they wouldn't have got their enormous tuition fees would they? If you want to see the motivation behind something, follow the money...

Fascinating isn't it? All these Tory backbenchers now bleating about the impact of lockdown on mental ill health, poor people, communities. Hmm didn't hear them complaining about the mentally ill, poverty and communities during the austerity years.

Similarly, some MPs (mainly Tories) are quite happy to brush aside the dire warnings about economic chaos caused by Brexit; but are furious about the economic impact of lockdown if it involves saving lives.

Nice to know they've got their priorities right

True, its a joke,   it makes me laugh when I hear a students education is being harmed by a lockdown, but its OK for them to take a Gap year and take their hook backpacking  when its suits them.  :gag:

doesn't paracetamol lower temperature ? how effective are the guns ?

What are you suggesting?

 

People will get around temperature checks by taking paracetamol before going shopping?

 

Even if someone did this, I suggested 4 things. The other 3 would help with any anomalies. 

 

It seems to be working in other countries. What do you think of the general idea of this 4 step process?

 

All wear face coverings

Temperature gun

Clean hands

and social distancing

 

before entering buildings.

 

If not, what suggestions do you have?

Not having a go but we would be snookered if major Supermarkets were closed,  but its true someone always makes a profit out of misery.
