Thanks. You too.

Wanted to make sure we were together to keep the reassurance going. Simple as.

Just heard a young lad who works here for Costa has been laid off awaiting an upturn in footfall.

Can't help thinking it's going to be a long wait...

Good luck PK, you must do what you think best.

Leaving here appears to be fairly low risk currently. Though the bulk mobile testing we are awaiting results for might change that.

I hear Charities here are meeting Monday and hopefully a more coordinated and secure distribution network for aiding vulnerable people might soon result.

@Albert Tatlockwhere have you heard about this charity meeting,  would be interesting to attend being a local charity

Irony. Highlands and Islands, Cornwall, rural areas all over the country are being swamped with people desperate to leave the cities. PK will no doubt pass some of them on the way in. Funny old world. 

Indeed, but if you have to move (and you shouldn't) he's probably going the right way.  Some idiots[1] have been fleeing to the Highlands - apparently it has been observed, because they have mistaken the coronavirus for the zombie apocalypse.  Of course such areas have poor medical facilities even for the normal size of population (because serious cases will normally get moved to hospitals in large cities.  And there's the additional risk that the 'refugees' will bring the virus with them to areas which tend to have a higher proportion of the vulnerable such as the elderly.

 

[1]  Again not very many in terms of the total population, but even a few will be enough to cause problems in sparsely populated areas.  But the media will of course use this sort of thing to blame 'the public' for everything that goes wrong.  Rather than the people actually running the country and those (the media) who should be holding them to account.

Difficult to hold anyone to account when nobody in the world has the answers and even scientists cannot agree.

But those idiots might make the correct call if the virus doesn't penetrate these remote areas, or at least not to any great extent whilst the hospitals in the cities resemble a horror scene reminiscent of the black death. No point in calling it because nobody knows

But odds are they aren't making the right call. Even the remote Shetlands already have about 15 odd cases :P
