 Although there can be some comparisons with other European countries the demographics of the countries may be different and thus have an influence on the effects of easing the lockdown.

I'm afraid I won't be one of those bold people, it still terrifies me.

And me! I expect more than one secondary spike. Indeed I believe England should have stiffened lockdown on 8th May to hopefully see the thing off before the next review on 29th May.But what can you expect? Money before people every time.

Did anyone watch the BBC2 Horizon Covid Special programme last night about the virus?

I don't usually tune into these programmes which seem to be dotted around the schedules at the moment and seem to be aimed at the mentally deficient among us. Horizon programmes are usually of a much more 'educational' level.

It was extremely informative about what the virus can do and what's being done to try to deal with it (honestly and intelligently delivered). It was so good to be spoken to like a proper, grown up (me? mostly!) adult. I'm sure it'll be on catch up for a while - see what you think.

Incidentally, speaking of tv schedules, wouldn't you think - with most people still pretty much under lockdown - they could find some decent stuff for us to watch? With a few exceptions (and, no, I don't mean the repetitive and now rather boring Killing Eve), its utter bilge!

I didn't watch it jillruss, I stopped watching most of the programmes some weeks ago as it was affecting me badly. The only one I did watch was a few weeks ago when a group of eminent scientists were answering sensible questions and giving straightforward and informative answers. They obviously weren't TV people and not as eloquent as the presenters but it was good to get proper information without any political bias. It sounds like the Horizon programme is worth a watch, I'll look for it on iPlayer. Thanks for the heads up.
