Statement at 8:30 tonight - expected lockdown this time

Let's hope so. I've got to go back to work on Wednesday and I'm seriously considering saying I have to stay at home and can't go in. Its proper freaking me out. I just had to go and get a few bits of shopping and that was terrifying.

Magistrates Courts still running as normal.

I'm custody duty solicitor on Saturday. Can't wait to be in a small cell with anyone kept in overnight from Friday night.

Also been reading that some hospitals aren't letting partners in for child birth. Not very up for missing the birth of our baby in May.

s*** all this.

Some reports are saying up to 30% of people who get it have no symptoms.

Might be that this is absolutely everywhere already, and I mean to a much greater extent than we know. Doctors in Italy say they were getting mystery pneumonia cases back in November. 

I hope even longer than that. In September my mum had all the symptoms. In intensive care for nearly 3 weeks with pneumonia.

Thanks lads, appreciated as always.

There's loads worse off than me, I know that.

Apparently they would have had to lay off 80% of the workforce or shut the doors end of March had the JRS scheme not been announced.

We turn over about £20m and employ 85 people.

I've had some very fortunate times, just got to deal with the less fortunate ones.

Sorry to hear this mate, hopefully it's a short term thing

My wife was told last week that she stay off work for 3 months because of her pregnancy,  but her manager called her today to tell her that the government have now stated that 28 weeks is the cut off date for pregnant women, so she has to go back to work this Thursday 😑

If this has been around for months why are the hospital's only filling up now?

Its been in China since mid November,  its not a huge leap that it got out in to the wider world sooner than initially thought.

My 2 years old niece spent a week in the hospital needing oxygen earlier this year, due to coughing too much 

 

Never tested her for Corona though

Well got the email this afternoon, out of a job or less than half pay for the foreseeable.

Find out on Friday. Not what you want at 52 with 2 young kids.

My rainy day fund has been decimated by the market crash so that's not much help.

Good all this isn't it?

That's really s***, Tommy.

So they all move to other regions and make it worse like the Italians did?

Again, we'll see. Like most rumours, it'll either be right, or wrong.
