Right... lets have some good news for a change.

First up, Neil Ferguson the Imperial College scientist who predicted 500k deaths in the UK that the media went crazy over is now predicting potentially fewer than 20k deaths.  Furthermore he goes on to say that the NHS can cope with the epidemic peak (due in 2-3 weeks) and that we have enough ICU beds;

Secondly, 87yo Grandad beats CV;

Its sunny outside, work is done for the week, I'm off to have a beer in the garden!

Classic whataboutery with the last two posts.  He is the prime minister - he is the fronts person coordinating this crisis. They need to know whether he has it or doesn’t (even if mild symptoms) to know whether he can continue to move freely or whether he has to go to the bunker. Two of our greatest minds, one with an IQ of about 180 if I recall, proving that there are none so daft as those that have political prejudices.

All I was doing was relaying what I was told by someone has been very ill at home, at the same time caring for a severely autistic child at the same time who was quite unable to comprehend what was happening as his own world fell apart, and I did so without any comment of my own.

It must have driven you mad over the last few months, not having me around to throw your tedious and entirely predictable comments at on a daily basis.

And no, I never said that my IQ was 'about 180', so your memory is somewhat less reliable than your comments are predictable.

I'm out of here again for a few days, because the polarisation of this forum is, frankly, ridiculous and pathetic.

Eddie just pop a few on ignore bud. Been plenty of love shown for you old chap so just ignore anyone who riles you. It's a better forum for you being here so your absence only pleases those who would rather you were gone and deprives the rest of us of the pleasure of your company.

Not at all Eddie, there are loads of others I can do that with.  You are hardly reliable either; you will flounce away again soon I am sure (oh I see I am a few minutes too late). You won’t see this but I hope your daughter, your grandson, you and the Mrs come through this well. COYR!!

I was already pining for the relative glory days of May. Won't be long before I'm remembering those happy days when the loveable fool Johnson was in the hot seat....

"Boris Johnson has said he is only suffering mild symptoms of Covid-19 and will continue working in the coming days – but if he is incapacitated by the virus, the foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, has been nominated as the “designated survivor”."

It's interesting the number of people I have spoken to through work who claim to have had coronavirus symptoms as far back as early January. If so, the estimates that 50% of the population may have already had the virus could be correct.

Certainly seems like 50% have been suffering....
