    You would hope that during that time antivirals would be developed, or at least treatments that could help to lessen the effects. This would allow a lot more people to move about. As the virus would find it increasingly difficult to spread it could fade from some countries and eventually a vaccine would come. In an ideal world where the virus doesn't mutate too much of course. I am of course talking about the high risk people. Plus I am not an Epidemiologists and so am just mentally copy and pasting what I have read or heard.

    Following from Prime Minister Boris Johnson's briefing, a full list of those classed as more at risk has been issued. This group includes those who are: aged 70 or older (regardless of medical conditions) under 70 with an underlying health condition listed below (ie anyone instructed to get a flu jab as an adult each year on medical grounds): chronic (long-term) respiratory diseases, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema or bronchitis chronic heart disease, such as heart failure chronic kidney disease chronic liver disease, such as hepatitis chronic neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), a learning disability or cerebral palsy diabetes problems with your spleen – for example, sickle cell disease or if you have had your spleen removed a weakened immune system as the result of conditions such as HIV and AIDS, or medicines such as steroid tablets or chemotherapy being seriously overweight (a BMI of 40 or above) those who are pregnant There are some clinical conditions which put people at even higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. People falling into this group are those who may be at particular risk due to complex health problems such as: People who have received an organ transplant and remain on ongoing immunosuppression medication People with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radiotherapy People with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia who are at any stage of treatment People with severe chest conditions such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma (requiring hospital admissions or courses of steroid tablets) People with severe diseases of body systems, such as severe kidney disease (dialysis) Public Health England write: "This guidance is for everyone.

    I'm way ahead of you there, like decades ahead.
  5. My mate (and his wife) fit a few of the high risk criteria and he's decided not to go.
  6. I read that preparing the dock, foundations was going to cost £100m. This was well known and part of the costs. The rumours have that foundation work now as either doubling or trebling depending on what taxi driver you listen to. Deeper piles or more of them, or both. Sounds painful but they're surely used to getting shafted now.
  7. I'm surprised Tyler hasn't joined in with the boos

    Tesla/electric cars

    Hyundai Kona with the top spec battery can achieve 300 miles per charge. Paired with home solar roof panels and a gadget that switches smartly (zappi) it is possible to charge your electric car and drive around for free. The Kona is about £30k I think. There's a decent youtube channel (fullychargedshow) run by Robert Llewellyn (Kryten, Red Dwarf) which contains some excellent information on the Kona, the zappi, Tesla batteries and more.
  12. We've had matches called off before and the pitch was perfect, I'm sure it was conditions outside. There are pros and cons to it. A pro being I won't near freeze to death.
  13. This is so much better with the commentary turned off.
  14. Maybe the offside is a bit of that 'evens itself out over a season' we hear so much about
