How many boarders are off work and self isolating?

In a factory, have to keep going in.

Unless youíre making ventilator machines Iíd say get home

I wish I could lad but no more than nurses and doctors, the people serving us in the shops etc we have to keep going or people will die of other things.

Iím off till Wednesday, itís a fluid situation and our Danish CEO has spoken and said they will look after us, I donít see how they will if some of the experts on here think 18 months before getting on with our lives again

Its like talking with a 5 year old.

18 months won't mean at 17 months and 29 days its full lockdown and at 18 months 0 days its a free-for-all do whatever ye want.

If a perfect lockdown was initiated today, then within 2 months everyone will either be (i)cured and have at least short term immunity, (ii)dead or (iii)not exposed. No lockdown is perfect, so in reality you'll have a continued number of people being exposed and falling ill. The degree of lockdown required depends on whether the health services can cope with that number of fresh illnesses.

Of course, the thing is, the sooner a lockdown is initiated, the much smaller the growth would be - after all - 200 potential lockdown leaks is alot better than 200,000 potential lockdown leaks.  But Bozo and his team of elite fuckwits know best.

Working from home starting today. Will probably have to go in the odd day though. Kids are off school too.

But still exposing yourself to others? Not sexually of course  ;)

My point is, that period youíre out and interacting with anything that contains the virus youíll bring it home. Surely itís self isolate or not all and be sensible when out (wash hands no touching no sneezing and all the other stuff)

Iím off till Wednesday, itís a fluid situation and our Danish CEO has spoken and said they will look after us, I donít see how they will if some of the experts on here think 18 months before getting on with our lives again

Just doubling down with your nonsense now MR2.

Still taking the piss out of people who said how serious it was last week

Youíve given no information there at all, the 18 months Iíd said was the period the real experts believe that a vaccine will be available. It could be ten or 20 months but timescales are given font lose your shit if those times donít happen.

Al the other other stuff the five year olds already know, are you at work?

In terms of a vaccine, and I admit I am no expert, I would be a little more optomistic. I think it is likely that the vaccine wont be hugely different than some other vaccine that may allow them to leverage of old trials. Also, if shit gets bad enough they may ok a vaccine on high risk patients who in turn will effectively become guinea pigs - obviously ethically dodgy grounds but if people are in real danger they may be willing to take the chance. Again - not an expert, just a hunch.

You used the term "experts on here".

The joys of citrix. Can do it from home.

Despite SARS and MERS (both of which are coronavirus), there has yet to be a successful vaccine developed for a coronavirus.

Mind you, work on a SARS vaccine petered out when the disease itself petered out. Medical science has greatly eveloped since then and  this is the  big one, where everyone will be working on a vaccine.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Probably the biggest challenge would be ramping up production of anything that was developed. I'd be hoping the people who make say the flu vaccine could switch over their manufacturing lines. That said I have no idea if that is possible or easy.

So by your definition of me taking the piss I wasnít being serious about this?

The experts on here are limited to whatís on news feeds from real experts. Here in lies the problem, so many various predictions on how itís going to pan out, who knows definitively?

Different scales of disaster movie on here!

The simplest thing to do is keep distance and ensure good hygiene. Self isolation if youíre in that group of elderly or underlying conditions.

What are the chances of Sky and BT reducing the monthly bills to reflect there being no sport? Or will we all have to ring individually and hold for ages!!!!
Could be a case of every penny counts.
What about other bills:
Mortgage
Rates
Loan payments
Car payments
Household Bills
Any chance of any of those being put on hold?
