    I wonder how significant this could be in the short term. Potentially a significant breakthrough if it works Coronavirus: New treatment for critically ill patients to begin as soon as next week

    An appeal to people to remember you are reading posts from people you do not know, you do not know the background of and do not know their motivations - on a weather forum.  If there are concerns

    My god those articles are awful, how can you even think of fining some over 70 1000 most couldn't pay it. About the oxygen, although it's most likely true unfortunately, they shouldn't report that now we do not need to know this. They are after shock value, and have probably made the panic worse. Glad my mum has a house with a garden and lives with her brother who's 68 so will be able to shop. Will construction work stop, if not, no doubt he'll insist on still working knowing him.

    Just had a woman on BBC news that's recovered from the virus.. Again the evidence shows us that the worst period of the virus is the first three days and you gradually get better after that.

    Some of you are panicking and feeling your stress & anxiety levels going through the roof and I understand because the next few months could get rough...really rough.

    We are all in this together, stock up on food and the essentials and ask for help if you need it. The Netweather community is here to help - some members live in your area and I'm sure atleast somebody will help if you reach out.

    Like Italy the nation now needs to unite and stop all the division and political bickering because it's now too late for all this lemon.

    Surely the Diamond Princess is the best indicator of mortality rate

    All on board were tested

    697 positive

    7 deaths

    Critical has dropped from 30 to 15

    Average age 58

    33% were 70 or older

    This not to bad considering the age group - however they all obvioulsy have had the best available care

    But has virus mutated since ?

    Reliable data on the new coronavirus's death rate has been scarce, with early numbers coming from China. But results from the cruise ship Diamond Princess...

    Just a thought here.  A lot of people are in the general consensus that we are heading for a catastrophe in the UK, but are we?

    (1) Number of tourists currently in the UK had sheared off, if almost none.  The last of which are going home in the next week, thus leaving the chance of rescue flights needed to nil.

    (2) Number of offices working from home (reliable source most are on Level 4 (WFH), Level 5 is lockdown like Milan)

    (3) easyJet plan to ground there entire fleet this week.

    (4) People are panic buying weeks worth (Did the Government know that this is what would happen, thus reducing any stress of having to have the Army work on logistics?)

    (5) Number of public using Public Transport is hugely down.

    (6) All flights in/out of UK now are mostly rescue flights or people heading home (thus ensuring a tight seal)

    (7) Eurostar are cutting services to 1 a day (in about a week) - Currently planned - 

     

    (8) Army in preparation to guard supermarkets and hospitals.

    (9) Last but not least, saying almost all of us will get this (That's one way to lemon a brick?)

     

    My point being - Is this the UK Governments tactic to scaremonger people to stay at home (with lots of food) to stop huge disorder on a terrible scale and then implement lockdown?  Rather than go all out?

     

    Could be bet what about those who can't stock pile like me, haven't got the money.

    The country has food-banks the size of multiple football fields. Hence the Army.  I've heard things from people in places, and I think plans are under the way.  Nothing of doomsday though!

    Naturally the 'leaked report' has made it on to the front page of the Daily Express

    No one will take any notice given how many silly weather stories and miracle drugs cure's they talked about over the years

    Maybe. A lot of behavioural science being used, as well as 'pure' science. Could be tactically astute or a massive fail?  Time will tell, probs.

    Aches and pain, cough, fever, headache mostly at front, nasal congestion, sore throat and tiredness.  Can't remember if I had a shortness of breath though.

    I would have interacted at work with hundreds of Chinese tourists and my local area has a few thousand residents (students etc).

    This is interesting from the Guardian- I wonder how long the UK government can resist the pressure to lockdown. It's interesting that they suddenly trust in experts now when experts have been dismissed from a large range of other topics in the past few years.

    Our legal affairs correspondent Owen Bowcott has this from Northern Ireland:

    Lawyers acting for the mother of a child who has asthma and attends a primary school in County Armagh are planning to launch a judicial review of the Stormont government’s decision not to close schools in Northern Ireland.

    Darragh Mackin, a solicitor at Phoenix Law, said that the girl suffers underlying health problems, including severe asthma and is at a greater risk of harm should she contract the coronavirus.

    He added: “It is clear that the respective public bodies have each failed in their respective obligations to our client, and indeed all children, by continuing to require their attendance at school in circumstances in which they would be at an increased risk of contracting the condition.

    There is no time for any further delay. The necessary policies and decisions all need to be taken in a manner that recognises the real and immediate risk.

    “The wider international community has spoken. Their advice cannot and should not be ignored.

    “It is a deplorable situation when a mother has to initiate urgent legal proceedings to ensure that her child, and indeed children across the jurisdiction, are afforded the necessary protections and safeguards required under law.”

     

    The Guardian? Hmm. Cant believe they'd find something to knock the current government.

    Me and the wife have both got a sore throat, headache and feel generally tired and achy. She's got a cough whereas I have not.

    Now under PHE guidelines neither of us are really symptomatic, however if you go by what some people who've had the virus have said then a lot of people fall into the bracket

    The Police couldn't cope with the scale in the UK. How much more stockpiling needs to be done?  Most people will now not have enough money to buy anymore.  

    Martial-law in this country would be very grey. Hence my feelings Army would need to be drawn in at last resort.

    I think based on the guidance you probably need to self isolate, especially because she has a cough as well.

    Seems alot of uncertainty about at the moment. Could do with a massive advertising campaign. I've heard some, but I think they really need to go overboard with the message.

    Summer Sun - literally just wrote this message as that news comes out!
