Yep ....Nick and I are off to Seville this week (not together !!).

Coming back from Majorca on Saturday ...no info at airport. No one in masks. Get into Luton airport and a brief message from Sleazyjet stating to check  info on Public Health England website if anyone had any concerns. That's all - no hysteria. No checking temperatures. No toilet roll shortage  noooo:

"Right so you know if we do get told to self isolate if the uk goes on lockdown, all these people sayin they will be made up to stay at home for 2 weeks, well surely there will be no telly cos the people working in the studios wont be able to go to work either and put our programmes on 😱

And you cant order takeaway neither cos they cant come out to deliver it. 🚲 so what do I eat??"

In 2019, an estimated 38,800 people lost their lives to car crashes – Did we carry on and drive our cars as normal or go out in foam padded suits and crash helmets ? . No because the media isn't bombarded with news about these statistics. Stop being such dicks with your hand washing and face masks. Get up as normal.

Clearly the man should be drowned in a bath of used Swarfega, but there is a grain of truth in his point about the numbers game.
It does go to show how readily the simple serfs are controlled and stampeded by the Meeja.

Something like 100 million people trips by car a day all of which have an outcome and only about 0.000005% ended in death

Because of the money they shelled out for Lucasfilm and Fox Disney can't afford to lose any more money so they will likely make their upcoming films available on demand, once that happens I can see the rest of the studios following suit.  noooo:

There is an emergency management meeting tomorrow and given the raft of support that Rishi Sunak has announced today I suspect I will still be able to use my holiday to cover for April and May. It it's any longer than that then as much as I don't want to I guess it's UC for me as the odds of finding another job in the meantime is probably going to be slim to none.  noooo:

Just issued in republic....

Stricter measures are being taken by the President.  This was revealed by Christos Charalambous.

 The numbers unfortunately show that they are not heading in the desired direction.  They seem to be up.

 According to what Christos Charalambous said Wednesday night, more stringent measures are being considered as the message "we are staying home" does not seem to be universally accepted.

Tomorrow at the Extraordinary Council of Heads, in the presence of all five Ministers (Foreign, Health, Labor, Justice and Finance) the data will be developed and green light will be called for stricter measures.

 In short, this means that measures may be taken tomorrow, including a ban.  "You will not be allowed to move", it was pointed out.

 The President will discuss this measure with the Party leaders.  According to the editor-in-chief of SIGMA, it is clear that if one looks at the streets in recent days, we do not appear to have the same image as other European countries that have taken similar measures to stop the virus.

 It is not excluded that the measure will take effect tomorrow for the next 14 days to limit the virus.

It makes sense though.  Essentially they've suspended the private companies for 6 months as otherwise with 70% drop in revenue and demands for season ticket refunds they'd just close down and then you couldn't get key workers to work

Having seen the stories about stressed NHS staff not being able to get anything from stores because of panic shopping and horders I'm going to suggest to the local supermarket that they have a collection point set up so that people can donate food items for them in the same way they can for the food banks. Don't know if it will work but it can't hurt to mention it.  rubschin:

Yes and no. While I firmly believe that after testing the most at risk NHS staff should get priority Charles had recently been at functions where he has been in close proximity to a number of senior members of foreign governments. Just for that reason I can see why there would be an urgent need to get him tested so that they can inform those countries as well if need be. Other than that I think he should be prioritised using the same criteria for a regular person his age.

If you are about to own or part own a house in Cornwall then a lot of them are long term very sellable and maybe short term bankable https://www.zoopla.co.uk/heatmaps/

As for jobs in the UK then right now it's bad but yes with our lower dependence on tourism it should recover a lot quicker than Cyprus

PLEASE listen and PLEASE share. (Greek translation included)

1. Until there has been zero new cases in a single day, this lockdown will remain.

2. The lockdown will continue for at least 14 days only AFTER zero cases are reported, more likely 28 days.

3. If even ONE new case is reported then that 14-28 day lockdown timeline will reset once again.

1. Until there are zero new cases in just one day, this isolation will remain.

2. Isolation will continue for at least 14 days only after zero incident report, more likely 28 days.

3. If even a new case is mentioned, then the closing time of 14-28 days will be extended again.

His 1st post ...."I don’t want to sound disrespectful to any family that has had a family member die of the Coronavirus, but something doesn’t sit right with me. We have seen about 3 to 4 photos of people who have died, yet in any other disaster we would be flooded with photos, yes I appreciate that some families may be against it, but in my life time most want to show their loved ones to the world as a word of warning to how dangerous it is. An aeroplane crashing a ship sinking etc, each carrying a few uk citizens and we get to see the entire list of the deceased.......but this very little."......

**NEWSFLASH**

A WOMAN is desperately searching the house to find her husband’s acoustic guitar and destroy it before he remembers it exists.

LL awoke in a cold sweat when it came to her in the night that the guitar was still in the house and in serious danger of being played within the next 48 hours.

She said: “The stakes could not be higher. This trip up the attic is basically an Indiana Jones film.

“I’ve already been through the garage and under the stairs, ransacking like a lunatic, knowing that if I don’t find it before Baldymort does we could be subjected to an inhuman ordeal lasting days.

“If I come down empty-handed there’s every chance the next time I enter the living room I’ll find Baldymort playing Master of the House with a self-satisfied look. He only knows three chords, but that leaves us vulnerable to butchered versions of every song from the musicals.

“The only choice is to find the guitar and obliterate it quickly and violently. Oh God, what if he livestreams?”

Baldymort said: “You know what? Maybe I’ll dust off the old acoustic and entertain the old-fashioned way tonight. Once LL’s stopped breaking whatever she’s breaking upstairs.”

Remember your first car? Mine was an Austin 1300. Nick's was a model T-Ford. Anyhoo... you rushed down  to Halfords and bought a sponge to clean it with. That was a young lung. You washed the bodywork but got very wary near the wheels were the caked on brake-dust and road oil would contaminate it. So you bought another and used the older one to clean the grubby bits below.  Your new sponge remained pristine. The older one by now was a bit black in places with accumulated shite but was still good enough for your dirty bits.

Your new sponge still looks great, but it's been accumulating dust, tiny bits of grit and all sorts of abrasives on it, so every time you wash the car, little scratches go in and the paintwork is eventually ruined. Any type of nastiness now gets in. Your pristine lung is now a problem.

Your old sponge, however, sits, unloved in the bottom on an old bucket somewhere and still only gets used for the bad bits. You know it is dirty, so you rinse it and squeeze it more - like coughing with phlegm - and the film on it makes it easier for the nasty stuff to fall off or not attach properly in the first place.

Smoking is an irritant that causes phlegm. For some people it goes rogue and causes cancer, but nowhere near as many as it is blamed for.

The ancient Amazonians smoked tobacco for centuries - it was thought to prevent fungal infections in the jungle -  and not one of the exhumed bodies ever showed any lung cancers. But there again, they never had to inhale burnt petrol/diesel/Jet A-1 etc. I believe that if you are going to get a cancer, you'll get it through your genetics. I also believe that certain substances may trigger more than others and tobacco isn't one of them. Margarine I'm not so sure about.

Quite the opposite. Precisely because someone didn't.  Think of phlegm like lung Waxoyl. Stuff may stick to the outside, but it doesn't get in and start attacking the main structure.

It's also a woeful exaggeration by the Sun over the original source that they suppose they quote

Miss A and Swillmore are still stuck in the UK awaiting a repatriation fight. They are on the list for the first two weeks in May.

They've been off the booze for 35 days!  eeek:

Once back in Cyprus they face a mandatory 14 days quarantine in a hotel chosen by the gubberment. After that they get couriered home.

They have shipped back as much of their luggage as they can do without as apparently they will not be allowed to use lifts at the airports or at the hotels.

Miss A's mum is knocking on Death's Door and she may not make it back in time...  cry:

I do love the fact that Youtube's recommended film list includes:

Outbreak
Contagion
Patient Zero

I'm guessing they haven't figured out that people would want to watch films to take their minds off things..  lol:
Well Contagion became free to Amazon Prime people
 
Excellent film  :thumbsup:

Black, Asian and Minority ethnic NHS staff could be taken off the front-line over concerns they are more vulnerable to coronavirus.

New guidance sent from NHS England to hospitals nationwide asks that BAME staff are 'risk-assessed' on a 'precautionary basis'.

Figures have shown 63 per cent of all health and social care workers who have died from coronavirus are from ethnic minority backgrounds, despite only making up 16 per cent of the workforce.

BAME patients also made up 16 per cent of all virus hospital deaths in England up to April 21.

Racist .... noooo:

Miss A and Swillmore got the results of the tests that were taken when they got off the plane last Friday - both negative.

Although at least one person on the plane did have it...

Excellent news as they would have been shunted off to a 'care facility' even though they have no symptoms.

I forgot to mention.

Miss A and Swillmore got the results of the tests that were taken when they got off the plane last Friday - both negative.

Although at least one person on the plane did have it...

Excellent news as they would have been shunted off to a 'care facility' even though they have no symptoms.

Because it's easy cheap reporting.  They watch BBC Breakfast and not long after a whole stack of Express stories are based on what they've seen.  Stir in a few stories nicked from the Daily Misery and Farage's diary (careful not to mention his Dover follies) and you have what appears to their followers to be a newspaper.  My Google news feed gets full of their shite.
 
The Express used to be funny in the days when they'd use so many column inches to moan about pornography without ever mentioning the magazines and TV channels their then owner was making a fortune out of.  Private Eye used to reliably get an article of two each week pointing this out.

Bollox I'd say...  ::)

I think the problem with these measures is that it is extremely difficult to roll them back.

I mean if we have to literally imprison people arriving from the UK today, why wouldn't we in July if the disease is still rampant there? Shrugs:

Another thought occurs...

The hotel gets €90 per day - €1,260 for Miss C and Swillmore... And say ~ €250,000 for all the people on the plane...?

Plus they have no staff and no facilities open (pool drained). So they have to provide 3 meals a day and do the laundry (prisoners have to clean their rooms and change the beds).

Hotel management are therefore probably making more than they would with a plane load of holidaymakers - especially if it is AI.

I think there might be some reluctance from the hotels to stop the quarantine...  ;)

I have been keeping a careful eye on the Facebook posts of my colleagues during this...far too many enjoying it. Utter mongs. Do hope that I'm involved in the selection process of who stays... Sinister:

To be fair I've started treating this as a paid holiday purely so that I don't lose my remaining marbles (lost too many in this place as it is  whistle: ). I'm keeping my eye out for other jobs but the way things are unless I want to go into care work there isn't that much out there.

And I couldn’t escape the waking dream
of infected fleas

in the warp and weft of soggy cloth
by the tailor’s hearth

in ye olde Eyam.
Then couldn’t un-see

the Boundary Stone,
that cock-eyed dice with its six dark holes,

thimbles brimming with vinegar wine
purging the plagued coins.

Which brought to mind the sorry story
of Emmott Syddall and Rowland Torre,

star-crossed lovers on either side
of the quarantine line

whose wordless courtship spanned the river
till she came no longer.

But slept again,
and dreamt this time

of the exiled yaksha sending word
to his lost wife on a passing cloud,

a cloud that followed an earthly map
of camel trails and cattle tracks,

streams like necklaces,
fan-tailed peacocks, painted elephants,

embroidered bedspreads
of meadows and hedges,

bamboo forests and snow-hatted peaks,
waterfalls, creeks,

the hieroglyphs of wide-winged cranes
and the glistening lotus flower after rain,

the air
hypnotically see-through,rare,

the journey a ponderousone at times, longand slow
but necessarily so

Feck me, it sounds just like Big Barry from the tip at chucking out time in the Red Lion on Saturday night

A properly tested vaccine isn't going to be anywhere near as effective as people are claiming because the virus has already mutated and there are now multiple separate strains going around. It's the same reason why there isn't one for the common cold.  noooo:

The problem connects with something I've been saying for years. Cabinet ministers should be people with relevant qualifications and experience and not given out as rewards to MP's who have toed the party line. At least then they would have a more rounded understanding of their relevant portfolio and in this case would have been far more likely to be able to understand and question the predictive model back at the start.

So Andrew Cuomo is now trying to blame Trump for a state directive he signed into action forcing nursing homes to accept covid patients, an action that is arguably responsible for over 5000 deaths from the virus. Now before Steve declares that I may as well start wearing a MAGA hat I've always considered myself a centrist libertarian and an issue voter rather than following political tribes. My problem here is that it's clear to me that in this case Cuomo is being a duplicitous lying coward and is trying to push all the blame on to Trump instead of taking responsibility for his own actions. This is even more reprehensible as this is still an election year and despite his claim to the contrary he has just politicised the entire thing.

Assuming the whole 'I was just following orders' argument had any merit New York is the only place where there have been over 5000 deaths in nursing homes attributed to covid so even if the CDC had been able to enact some kind of edict forcing states to make them accept covid infected patients then we would have seen a sharp increase across the entire country. In fact the CDC did issue guidelines on using alternative facilities in order to free up hospital beds and I've read both the guidelines and all three revisions of the ACS toolkit and they never mention using nursing homes in that manner, the only example they gave was the use of hotels. They did however say this about nursing homes:

Quote
Given their congregate nature and resident population served (e.g., older adults often with underlying chronic medical conditions), nursing home populations are at high risk of being affected by respiratory pathogens like COVID-19 and other pathogens, including multidrug-resistant organisms (e.g., Carbapenemase-producing organisms, Candida auris ).  As demonstrated by the COVID-19 pandemic, a strong infection prevention and control (IPC) program is critical to protect both residents and healthcare personnel (HCP).

Facilities should assign at least one individual with training in IPC to provide on-site management of their COVID-19 prevention and response activities because of the breadth of activities for which an IPC program is responsible, including developing IPC policies and procedures, performing infection surveillance, providing competency-based training of HCP, and auditing adherence to recommended IPC practices.

The section on nursing homes and long term care facilities lists the standard infection control procedure guidelines that you would expect to see and that includes having new patients/residents where their covid status is unknown which you can read below:

Quote
Create a Plan for Managing New Admissions and Readmissions Whose COVID-19 Status is Unknown.

Depending on the prevalence of COVID-19 in the community, this might include placing the resident in a single-person room or in a separate observation area so the resident can be monitored for evidence of COVID-19. HCP should wear an N95 or higher-level respirator (or facemask if a respirator is not available), eye protection (i.e., goggles or a disposable face shield that covers the front and sides of the face), gloves, and gown when caring for these residents. Residents can be transferred out of the observation area to the main facility if they remain afebrile and without symptoms for 14 days after their admission. Testing at the end of this period can be considered to increase certainty that the resident is not infected.

Not one part of the guidelines says that nursing homes have to take covid patients, in fact they highlight the dangers of doing so. The directive forcing them to take said patients and therefore exposing vulnerable people to the virus was written into state legislature by Andrew Cuomo, Trump had nothing to do with that decision. In fact the separation of powers between State and Federal government as laid down in the constitution specifically states that the Federal Government is responsible for

Interstate commerce
Foreign trade and travel
National security

While State level government is responsible for all powers not given to the federal government and 'Police powers', these are powers exercised by the states to enact legislation and promulgate regulations in order to protect public health, welfare and morals and to protect the common good.

The CDC can issue guidelines regarding specific events but they can't make new laws, just enforce ones that have gone through the full legislative process and while they do have some regulatory authority it is to prosecute entities that fail to follow those respective laws. So even if the CDC and CMS had issued a directive stating that nursing homes had to take infected patients, something that (a)would be in direct breach of the Hippocratic Oath and (b)contradict guidelines they had already given so I'm more than inclined to call bullshit, it would only be a guideline so Cuomo could have easily said no.

If Boris was stupid enough to order the same thing then I'll condemn him as well although my condemnation of Cuomo is as much his mealy mouthed attempt to politicise his bad choice by saying it was Trump's CDC and CMS as both agencies exist and have done so for years regardless of who is in office. Plus as is clear in the title of the document the directive itself is guidance only, it didn't put a gun to Cuomo's head and force him to make the nursing homes to take Covid infected patients. In fact it clearly states that if a nursing home isn't capable of following CDC infection control instructions they must not accept any patients with Covid, something that the state decree ignored.

(http://A nursing home can accept a resident diagnosed with COVID-19 and still under Transmission Based Precautions for COVID-19 as long as the facility can follow CDC guidance for Transmission-Based Precautions. If a nursing home cannot, it must wait until these precautions are discontinued. CDC has released Interim Guidance for Discontinuing Transmission-Based Precautions or In-Home Isolation for Persons with Laboratory-confirmed COVID-19.)

Medical experts were asked if it is time to lift the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.
There were mixed responses.

Allergists were in favor of scratching it altogether, but dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.
Gastroenterologists had a gut feeling it was a bad idea, and neurologists claimed the government had a lot of nerve.
Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Forensic pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" to which pediatricians responded, "Oh, grow up!"
Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while radiologists could see right through it.
Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and pharmacists claimed it would be a bitter pill to swallow.
Podiatrists thought it was a huge step forward, but urologists were pissed off at the notion.
Anesthetists thought the whole idea was gas, and those lofty cardiologists just didn’t have the heart to say no.
In the end, though, the proctologists won out and the entire decision will be left up to the assholes.

America is screwed on Corona now because while the state authorities were perfectly happy to crackdown on any other perceived infraction of the lockdown nobody had the balls to stop the BLM riots which have been a perfect breeding ground for the virus causing the current spike in infections. After all, if you couldn't open a business, go to church or protest about the lockdown then how could thousands of idiots in close proximity looting, burning and vandalising statues be immune.

You are right BLM didn't manage too much in Florida, just 14 days of protests in Miami-Dade, 7 Days of protests at Fort Myers, between 200 and 700 protesters in Weston, Fort Lauderdale, Daytona Beach, Fort Walton, Navarre, Orlando, Palm Coast, Pensacola, Port Orange, Port St Lucie, Sarasota, St Petersberg, Tallahassee, Tampa, Temple Terrace, Windermere, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth Beach, West Palm Beach, Collier County, Cape Coral. Not to mention over 1000 people protesting at Gainsville and over 1200 people protesting at Jacksonville all of whom would have been in close proximity to one another making it an almost perfect breeding ground for the virus.

And Texas certainly didn't have hundreds of protesters in Abilene, Alpine, Amarillo, Arlington, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Edinburg, El Paso, Frisco, Galveston, Laredo, Lewisville, Lubbock, Lufkin, Mansfield, McKinney, New Braunfels, Odessa, San Angelo, Southlake, Texarkana, University Park, Vidor, Waco, Wichita Falls. Neither did they have over 1000 protesters in Dallas, over 3000 protesters in Denton, over 2000 protesters in Houston plus an additional 5000 to 10000 people in Houston for the viewing of George Floyd's body or the several thousand protesters in San Antonio. I'm sure that the covid spikes in both states are just pure coincidence and nothing to do with large bodies of people in close proximity.

My pub doesn't open til next Thursday and even then I'm not rushing to go there.  Not so much the risk but I don't think it'll be the same at all

Have booked a table for 2 at a restaurant for next Friday though

In fairness if I hadn't inherited a house (didn't want it under those circumstances )..we would be very worried ..the mentality here is so set ..no one has even thought about gearing up for winter trade ... noooo:
