Although symptoms of the virus are predominantly respiratory, it also causes a myocarditis (inflammation of heart muscle) which could explain the heart disease association. As for diabetes, not sure. Diabetes of course is associated with cardiovascular disease, so it could simply be a surrogate marker for heart disease. Alternatively, diabetics have diminished immune functioning, and might therefore be more affected by the viral infection itself than non-diabetics. 

Clearly it's never been more important for people to look after their health. If you're still smoking/vaping, having a few drinks after work, not eating any fruit/veg and are one of the ones queuing down Peel Road for McDonalds every lunch now might be a good time to have a good look at yourself.

Interesting that a whole Government department (GTS) are now working from home yet schools etc are still open. 

I give it 48hrs until Manx Telecom falls over.

Why would anyone buy tinned potatoes? I'd rather eat The Courier. 

I'd rather eat The Courier than pasta and/or any wheat flour derivative thereof.... they're empty calories.

Every word of his statement will be written for him by the Chief Secretary. He won't be taking questions afterwards either.

What? You mean the army of press people working in the CO won't be invited to put something together? Why have a dog and bark yourself?
