    Not sure the lock down will just be London. 

    Just my opinion  but i believe London will be first  quickly followed   by other major cities and surroundings  Ie Brum  Manchester.

    Sky news reporting that 25 out of 71 deaths (35%) and 601 out of 1950 positive cases (30%) are in London. 

    London has around 14% of the UK population.


    Yep  High Numbers  There.   Actually here in the Black Country  i believe there as been 8 deaths   4 in dudley   popu.lation wise that  in itself is quite alarming

    Please don't call 111, or advise people to call 111 with general questions. You will be preventing people that genuinely need the service, from getting through.

    The Government/NHS Advice for using 111 can be found here :


    NHS advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), including what to do if you think you have it and how to reduce your chances of getting it.

    'Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

     - you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home

     - your condition gets worse

     - your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

    Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.'

    Ok  But the point still stands  i dont think this place is the right arena to be posting questions   Highlighted by my rather naive response

    Afternoon all,

    Question about Covid and the immune system, during and after pregnancy. My friend is pregnant and is now staying in for the next 12 weeks. Is this advice to protect the baby? And are pregnant women more likely to catch Covid due to the immune system being suppressed? 

    what about people who have recently had a baby? I think it takes a few months for the immune system to get back to normal? Are they more at risk of catching Covid too? 

    Bab  With all due respect i dont think this is the place  to answer your questions    Maybe contact the NHS or dial 111  or google  there is loads of information out there

    Assemblies are nothing if not mass gatherings, they 100% should be gone as they must be real spread zones.

    Jeremy Corbyn is quite right when he talks about ssp needing to be increased, I've said that many times now.

    I understand  but the assemblies  were not full schools assemblies   I dont think there would be space to house over 1000 pupils    infact the assemblies  probably have less than the numbers quoted for dinner breaks

    Only 15 MPs the PM and Jeremy Corbyn will be in the commons today for PMQs in order to adhere to the new social distancing guidelines.

    I thought social distancing also included over 70s ?

    So am i right in thinking Trump is giving everyone a grand to tie them over until this dies down?

    That wouldn't even cover half my months wages.

    i believe so.  My post was more related to the response below that   which i found amusing  and at the same time tragic.
