Tesco, Boots and The Body Shop all sold out of sanitizing hand gel in Durham today. Plenty of soap left.
Gonna be like 'Children of Men' in reverse... Or 'Lord Of The Flies'.We've been given work for March (hurray!). However it involves making live streamed lessons, including a weekly video call with each student, which will add up to something like 4 times the usual teaching time per week (boo).
This image seems to show that the virus is effectively only lethal to the elderly, however I don't have a source for it (I found it on facebook).

Glad to hear things aren't too serious where you are and that almost everyone's masking up anyway .. I've been worried about you and the family dude .. have they closed your nipper's school?.. I read that South Korean schools are closed at the moment?I walked into work today--none to do, but I had some paperwork and cleaning to finish.
We're not in a high-risk part of the country (a handful of cases in a city of one million), but I'd say that of the fifty or sixty passers-by I saw on the way, only two or three were not wearing masks.
Thanks, mate. We're fine at the moment. No panic buying here and everything is home-delivered anyway.Glad to hear things aren't too serious where you are and that almost everyone's masking up anyway ..

A bottle of iso propanol should do the same thing.Cromer jokes aside, we've just been to all 8 outlets in Cromer today that normally sell alco gel hand sanitizers and they've all sold out (including the surgery shop) due to panic buying, one of the places was limiting two only per customer. The Mrs has just ordered a few from Amazon, they won't arrive until the 28th.
Plus you all get to hang out more for another week .. your mission this week is to teach miniYith how to arm wrestle ..Thanks, mate. We're fine at the moment. No panic buying here and everything is home-delivered anyway.
Miss Yith's new term was put back one week (was due today) and now another.
The government have taken a lot of major steps and are now waiting to see what the outcome is on the numbers. Once the glut of infected cultists test results are complete, the daily figures for new cases may well drop.
It is actually amazing how many tests have been carried out in such a short time: very nearly 110,000. Once you know who has it, you can isolate and treat.
I have a lot of loo roll. Bought because of Brexit.So come on then guys; if it all goes Mad Max over here, what will you have stockpiled in your stash, over and above the essentials?
(Ever get the feeling that we're living through an apocalyptic sci-fi movie?)
Completely depends on a) which country, b) where they went within that country, c) what they did there.Serious question here which I'd really appreciate your opinions on.
What level of worry should be placed on the situation of a work colleague visiting a 'high risk' country for several days/ couple of weeks (either business or holiday) and then returning straight to work?
How worrying is the chance that they could bring back the virus and infect their colleagues, who otherwise have not placed themselves at this greater risk?
I am unaware of any guidance which states that the individual should quarantine themselves (unless they show symptoms). But they could come back to work before they show symptoms..
