General discussion on current situation
« on: Sunday 10 May 20 01:54 BST (UK) »
I heard that Blackpool was heaving today so I dread to think what's going to happen if any restrictions are eased.  The death toll is still far too high for my liking and with the 10-14 day incubation period for this virus I think another 2 weeks of restrictions would not be that unreasonable.

My neighbour was in shock on Thursday.  He is an engineer and his workplace have been staggering shifts to ensure distancing.  A colleague was sent home sick last Saturday, he was on a ventilator by Monday and died Wednesday.  Confirmed Coronavirus as cause of death

I heard about the situation in Blackpool via my friend whose daughter works at Blackpool Victoria hospital.   She and her partner, who also works at the hospital, live near the beach & were on their usual daily walk.  They were so angry seeing the numbers of people having barbecues and socialising close to each other as both have seen people dying from the virus in recent weeks and know how devastating it can be. 

Whilst Iím sure it would have come anyway - Borisís announcement on Monday 30th March came after newspaper publications of people on Sunday 29th March behaving in similar fashion to yesterday.   

Letís see what happens after todays announcement

I must admit I don't "do" the "Thursday clap" - a friend says it sounds like a rather nasty social illness, and I really can't see it helps.
I suppose that the "75 years after" emphasis was because, with the best will in the world, by five years hence, at 80 years, there is almost no chance of any active armed forces participants still being alive.

IF an increase of the virus cases occurs it can only mean a return to or more in the lockdown procedure, depending on what Mr. Johnson has instore for us later today.

Indeed the number of poor people dying in Care Homes is awful.

I know of 3 people who have died recently of Covid 19 in Care Homes. Two were a parent of my son's friends and the other was my step daughter's father in law. No family had been allowed to visit them  for weeks so sadly were not with them when they passed away.

This was in Scotland

It is just possible the residents may have enjoyed themselves in their last months of life,
They have rights to make personal decisions, they are technically one household.

Not sure about this - I have been making a note of the official hospital death figures for the UK as reported by BBC.  And I have been looking at the newly reported case figures for my postcode (county of Staffordshire):

8 May:  626 deaths, 1934 new cases
9 May:  346 deaths, 1949 new cases
10 May:  269 deaths, 1961 new cases
11 May:  210 deaths, 1979 new cases
12 May: 627 deaths, 1988 new cases
13 May: 494 deaths - new cases for Staffordshire not yet available until tomorrow

Should we really be easing lockdown?
