    also a total nonsense as for all of march and the first half of april people nobody at all in care homes was tested and homes were still being told not to send ANYONE to hospital regardless, so that almost all C19 deaths until mid april went down as just pneumonia (like my dad), dementia etc even where visiting GPs suspected C19 - and relatively few pnuemonias go from a moderate cough at lunchtime to dead at 2am that night as in his case. Actually finding hancock the most infuriating of the whole sorry mob these days.

    Update after a horrible day on 2 hours sleep is that I've spent pretty much the whole day chasing down Public Health England, Adult Social Care, the Care Home Company HQ all at tons of different levels to try and see if any sense was achievable. I've done pretty much nothing for my actual family. Other than just getting to the undertakers in time so that they could follow a new safety protocol for their staff, very little achieved and I've just been advised of various ways to complain for the longer term. But there's absolutely no way of arranging a test - even if 1 test will affect at least 8

    No problem. This is in outer London, SW, but all the "guidance" I'm being quoted seems to be nationwide. If that might be local to you message me and I can explain more precisely. I don't think the home staff are really at fault here FYI. Thanks all for the responses, at least hearing some sanity does help a bit. I'm still trying to get any clarity at all and no luck....

    Could I ask for forum advice please? My Corona story is that my Dad was living in a care home, 73 but with several serious conditions and a history of unhealthy living. He was really ill over xmas but had recovered and doing pretty well when I saw him (from a safe distance and after over a week of not going anywhere beyond taking the dog out) last Thursday to try and explain what was happening with likely impending closure to visitors etc (a policy which came in on the weekend). He got a cough on Saturday but has existing COPD and given that the symptoms weren't too bad. But getting more

    Family in Lombardia, the working assumption is that with the incubation period every policy change takes two weeks to see in numbers so they're praying that it starts to come down this coming weekend, two weeks since the lockdown got tightened. Also some staying in intensive care for a month so can distort. This is also why some eejit with a bucket in his garden isn't a very useful 'explanation' as you can't just choose to stop the flow quickly. Fingers crossed.

    Don't buy this line at all, based on a lot of family near Milan and friends all over the country. They acted earlier than almost all other countries have done on their growth curve, and are at least trying to prioritise citizen health above economic impact, noticeably different to most. Flights from China stopped six weeks ago, schools closed nationwide 3+ weeks ago, stay at home policy now blatantly sensible. The original reason for it being worse seems to be down to a few known asymptomatic superspreaders who managed to infect a lot of people very quickly, eg the two marathons and football t

    EU Referendum

    Likewise, in nearly 25yrs of voting have never contemplated it until yesterday. TBH I could even just about live with the ambiguity position (which I don't agree with but can at least see where it's coming from as a strategy), but I just couldn't stomach the response to a massive swing to remain parties in the local elections a few weeks ago being loudly interpreted by the leadership as 'just get on with Brexit' - parroting the May line and just utterly disrespectful to a clearly sizeable chunk of voters (and much of the Labour party). Obviously a general election would still be a different st

  10. Copy them all into a single list, create a pivot table and sort by category, using as your data values both a) the count of each entry (i.e. how many times 'boat' appears) and b) the sum of entry (i.e. the total associated with boat). Sort the list however you like, presumably according to the count to get your 'weighting'. Would be close anough and take very little time/ effort?

    I'm type 1 since 2007, juvenile my a*** I was 29! A bit different obviously but op definitely needs some advice as it sounds dangerous. Hypos are scary but you can manage the risk and severity of them. To be honest I've found most of the nhs advice to be pretty useless and totally obsessed with this hypo fear, which is counter productive, Eg always eat shed loads of carbs to avoid risk, ,means you take massive doses and any error is really serious and actually increases risk of a dangerous sudden one, as week as encouraging long term damage through the type of fearful approach you describe.

    The Olympics

    went to pick up other tickets at wimbledon today at exactly that time - place was heaving with people desperate to get in, even for 'park entry' tickets without a seat. I was there 10 mins and saw maybe 200 peopel get turned away - only to see yet more empty seats. it really is a disgrace. Even if it's 1,000 more the IOCs fault than anyone else's I'd reckon..
