Lots out in my street showing appreciation for the NHS. Good to see.

Same where I live. Was amazed how loud it was to be honest.

I was half expecting to be on my own, but the noise around the streets in Chepstow was fantastic 

Yeah - where I am at the moment is pretty rural and not too many houses. I was surprised how loud it was.

The last time Tory MPs clapped and cheered the NHS was in the House of Commons when they had just defeated a bill to give all NHS workers a pay rise!

Just saying.

Bedminster sounded loud on Radio Bristol

Very loud here in Easton - people banging drums, cheering and clapping. It was like being in S82. Maybe we could have an "Atmosphere" thread for future 8 O'Clock Claps for the NHS? What about chanting to encourage adjacent streets? e.g. "South Street South Street clap your hands". What do you think Robbored?

Just watching Trump's latest briefing, he's absolutely puddled, been rambling on for 10 minutes or so.

America back to work next week I think he meant next month as his syrup slipped over his eyes

But it's ok, he'll have the US open for business by Easter.......for rapid contagion and death.

Who does his make-up btw?!

Seen that too. He's incoherent at the best of times, but that briefing looked and sounded like a man who was ready for a straight jacket.

Frightening thing is, his poll rating in the US has never been higher, his supporters, they're lapping it up..

When I say bs3 that’s my street so not saying the rest of bs3 was the same because obviously I don’t know,it’s a real shame tho but I expected it because everyone moving in up here are ignorant bastards

Will City playing staff take a temporary wage cut? I see Premier League has taken a blanket approach to defer, but clubs from Barcelona to Leeds negotiating bespoke packages with their players. Personally I think a temporary cut from City players would strike the right tone, they have bills to pay but by any standard are affluent young men. It would help Bristol Sport continue to pay non-playing staff regardless of SL’s generosity or the government scheme.

Next one of the first big companies to suspend all online sales due to concerns from warehouse and distribution staff.

Guess sales have massively dropped as no one needs new clothes for staying at home but could be start of other companies following suit.

There does seem to be a lot of mixed messaging. We’re told we should stay in but are allowed out to exercise once a day. But we shouldn’t drive anywhere to do so. But we have to be 2m away from anybody else?

What’s the harm in driving somewhere quiet for a walk? I live in the middle of Bristol, everywhere I go has lots of people. But I know lots of places outside the city that would be quiet. But that’s out as I hear the police are stopping people and questioning them.

We also still have lots of non-essential people out working as their bosses are not letting them WFH or because they are unable to WFH.

It’s all pretty messy.

I was just discussing this with a member of my family. I think they have to make a universal law to ensure that it's enforced. Obviously if you're in the middle of nowhere in the Peak District, you're not going to be affecting anyone. Equally, most of us are sensible enough to do the right thing (i.e. keep our distance). But if they don't bring the measures in, you just know there will be people out there who don't take the necessary precautions, or who live in too built up an area to be able to.

I think the main point is that by driving somewhere unnecessary is then you have the risk (albeit tiny) of having an accident, which in turn then may require an Ambulance/Hospital adding more strain to the NHS.

True, I didn’t think of that. 

It’ll be interesting when this is over to see if there has been a big reduction in other things. Are norovirus cases down? Are car accidents down? Etc.

Although I guess those things will be balanced out with accidents in the home. My stepdad almost electrocuted himself while drilling a wall the other day.

This isn't even government policy.  This is the police on a "frolic of their own".

Quote

Police said members of the public should not be driving anywhere to walk their dogs or exercise. However, the Guardian checked with the Cabinet Office, which is overseeing restrictions on movement, and a spokeswoman confirmed that the guidelines did not prohibit driving somewhere for exercise or dog walking.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/26/uk-police-use-drones-and-roadblocks-to-enforce-lockdown?CMP=fb_gu&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR2E5o5mwYWgy2xcfVhk5I7M7Ajki5dTjkZdFGya6g7gXLI7fOjJJ7K9Tl4#Echobox=1585243378

The police are making up their own rules now.  That's not a comforting thought.

I think the reason that we are all being asked to stay at home is that is what the government and NHS want.......and that is for us to stay at home. People misinterpret messages and what a normal person might see as causing no problem , ie BS2Red could cause no problem driving up the Downs but Joe Idiot would make it into a mission, visiting friends, getting in other people's space, etc. For what its worth me and the missus have rediscovered a bedroom sport and thank the government for their advice and the added bonus is no little surprises in nine months time 👼

To much info Stan , 👀😂

Think I was thinking of H5N1.

I've read, somewhere, that bats were implicated with Sars. Great Horse Shoe Bats that may have been stored near the species that might have passed the virus to humans. 

Weren't they also the likely vector for ebola?

I think the entire comic book franchise Batman may have to be rethought.  :protest:

A bit more abou the Pangolin theory here Robbo

The NHS have just taken over Brighton’s ground, The Amex, to use as an emergency hospital. If other areas throughout the UK use local football stadia, can not see this season finishing.

Ashton Gate with it’s modern meeting/ function rooms and concourses might be an option in Bristol?
