Be careful with that, as there are a lot of scammers about. But if you have a GOV.UK gateway account you it may be legit but I have not received anything like this. 

All mobile operators will be sending this message out today at some point.
 

You’re absolutely right about being extremely careful of logging into anything from a link in a text message. The panic in people is something scammers are preying on.

Just had confirmation that it isn't the young that won't heed advice. Although retired I have a business selling pre-owned Mobility Scooters. Just had an elderly customer on the phone with a problem with his. Wanted to bring it up to me to look at. Told him couldn't see him due to the new rules. He hasn't been watching the TV and got quite irate about it !! Said the Golf Club was open yesterday but as I told him, that was yesterday. Then said he must get it sorted as he wants to get out and about and play golf. Incredible

Do you, for a bit of a laugh, offer a lifetime guarantee on your work to customers who look really frail?

I see Spain reporting just 76 new infections today*. That could mean a flattening of the curve for them, after a period of strict lockdown.

 

 

*Unless I've misunderstood the data.

Hopefully some slightly positive news from Germany

The head of Germany's public health institute has said there are signs the exponential upwards curve in new coronavirus infections in the country is flattening off for the first time.

Lothar Wieler, head of the Robert Koch Institute added it was a result of social distancing measures.

He said: "We are seeing signs that the exponential growth curve is flattening off slightly.

"But I will only be able to confirm this trend definitively on Wednesday."

He added he was optimistic that measures taken so far in Germany, including school closures, instructions on hand-washing and strict warnings against public gatherings, were already having an effect.

Trouble with Germany is they aren’t reporting all cases.

Was discussed on news last night, if someone dies in hospital we do a post-mortem and if they have Covid 19 we report it in the figures.

Germany are not reporting how people died/doing post mortem so there figures are very low due to it. 
 

It appears different counties are reporting differently so numbers are everywhere.

That;s made me laugh when I know it really shouldn't! 

Well, there is no football to bet on, what better than the inaugural pensioner grand prix!

One lap of the precinct, a blue rinse pit stop and first to collect their pension is the victor.

Title winner gets a hip replacement.

Where I live, Merseyrail have cut the number of trains per hour on each line from 4 to 2, however they've doubled train lengths from 3 carriages to 6 by joining units together so there's no loss of seats. 

I know not every operator can do that, especially on the Tube, but people having to cram on to fewer services defeats the object completely.

Yes some platforms are too short as it is eg Baker Street. 
 

plus on another note media offices will be open, itv, bbc, sky etc. Sky is in Osterley near Brentford, it’s a huge campus with 1000s of employee’s, including IT people, journalists, back room staff, designers, tv people, cleaners, admin etc. It’s miles away from most of their employees and those can’t all work from home

Comes as no surprise that 'Spoons are hiding behind 'details' and couldn't care less about their staff.

Their owner has some very peculiar traits - for example, why would the majority share holder of a publicly list company be so vocal about a referendum that was clearly splitting the nation? Have a view by all means, but keep it to yourself. For every new customer he attracts he will likely lost one, as well as spooking investors.

I would be more than happy to stay at home. And I encourage any one that can to do so. 

However, if you were looking at not paying bills, mortgage or even having enough money to buy vital supplies im sure you would reluctantly go to work. 

The world is bigger than just you and your presentations. Other people are suffering tonight, perhaps think about others and the position there in ?

Hey this sounds like a fun game.

You carry on as normal , wandering round infecting people, and then you can pass them over to me to decide which ones live and which ones die.

Maybe at some point I could give you a list, let you chose, fancy that?

WTF is wrong with these people... 

Its not the first time that has happened in Southmead - probably the same kids who got away with it last time.

It'll probably be known who did it and this time may well be enough to give police the names.

Hope so anyway.

Do Spain like us do theirs per region? As they have Catalonia, islands and mainland. There was a program last night I have not seen it so can't confirm its true, but in Madrid 1 - 10 health workers have it and they are lowering the age of patients to get critical care.  

 

On ours Wales is always first then followed by Scotland and England is last. I only noticed as I looked on the website yesterday and thought we was low so things are looking up then Wales anounced their figures which matched the websites. 

 

Edit just noticed this so some are updating throughout the day

Partly true, but there are other forms of transport available in London. Plus I would guess, and only a guess, that not everyone on there has to be on that tube. It’s a London mentality, no one wants to back down as they believe they are the most important.

London cabbies are struggling at the moment so use them!

These workers may well be low paid. Public transport is cheaper I'm sure.

These key workers (funny how these are classed as 'key workers' now but not paid much in general) cannot afford to take fans to work and live- I don't think there's much jolly travel ongoing here, much read below for fun as @exAtyeoMax said.

Until the Government package is fully up and running, people who cannot work from home who have little choice will continue to do so. Thinking any zero hours. Then you have key workers who need to work irrespective.

That did occur to me. If it's countrywide, that's a hell of a turnaround from the 1000+ per day they were getting a week ago.

Unfortunately, it appears reports of Germany's infection curve flattening out may be wishful thinking judging by its last figures.

Just edited my comment, I noticed something at the bottom stating the below. 

The "New" columns for China display the previous day changes (as China reports after the day is over). For all other countries, the "New" columns display the changes for the current day while still in progress.
