I actually got hospitalised a few days after going to the QPR game, this was two weeks after the Christmas flu coughing finally stopped, initially i was diagnosed with a strangulated hernia but a ct scan revealed all the lymph nodes in my groin had become inflamed and the consultant told me that they obviously been working overtime to remove an infection. At the time of being hospitalised news about Covid 19 was only starting to appear so no connection was made but the more i think of it and remember the symptoms i had a Christmas such as wheezing that made me sound like a dog the more convinced i am it was around a lot earlier than people think 

To me that’s a positive thing because we could be hitting it’s peak a lot earlier than forecast and also a lot of people will have had it and now be immune which Is what the herd immunity thing is all about 

For real? I have a similar issue in my groin / hip region that's been lingering since January. The pain is quite deep in that region, not like a surface pain and thought it was possibly psoas or something. i've got a physio appointment Friday

That could be complete coincendance because I do a lot of weightlifting and running, so very possibly just a tight muscle...

Yeah it was weird though as i was struggling to walk and stand but was able to cycle with no problems at all and i certainly don’t do any weightlifting 

I ended up spending three nights in the Royal London hospital being pumped with drugs i don’t remember which and it took another week of antibiotics before the lymph nodes starting returning to normal.

Think even our one will get bored of her screens eventually!  Going to be interesting times but we will see how it all pans out. Feel very sorry for those kids with exams due, must be a very stressful time for them and their parents especially.

I wouldn't take anything off the table the way thing s are going, and at a quick rate.  There have already been 3 or 4 actions which a month ago wouldn'tever in a month of Sundays thought would ever happen!

They're finally stepping up testing capacity. Something that should've been done as priority one, but at least is happening now. Must've been reading my angry social media posts ;) 

Good news.

Businesses need more clarity and more grants/less loans if they are to keep paying staff as orders dry up. The other option is a surge in benefit claimants that will be unprecedented in history and likely be as unmanagable as if everyone got sick at once.

I read about efforts to develop a test to see those who HAD Covid-19 but are now recovered. Be interesting to test all of us here who had Covid style symptoms before the virus "arrived" in the UK and see whether it was about before early Feb. Also, if we knew we'd caught it  and recovered, we'd likely have a high degree of immunity and could be very valuable to society, taking on tasks that are currently being undertaken by those who have not caught the virus.

If people stop acting like dicks then there’s a better chance it won’t happen. Pubs packed yesterday for Paddy’s day apparently in a lot of cities.

People still need to eat- supermarkets for example.

I suspect that will also be fluid, if it gets  so bad it could be that people are handed out cards that allow them to go shopping on certain days  and it has to be shown to police/army on request.  Hopefully it never comes to that, but the wy this is escalating, it is a possibility.

It is possible that curfews may come in - if people continue to ignore the advice not to attend gatherings, pubs, etc.

This chart suggests the govt is doing a whole lot more than those with childish jibes that they are not. These are facts. Look at Italy.. what a laugh. Even the US is only committing to 5% of GDP at present.

My faith remains in a govt who leans on a world renowned medical team and industry.

Are you serious?

They've wasted 2 months of possible preparation for this to hit on a policy that any fool could see would overwhelm the NHS before a screeching U turn on Monday, and you have faith in them?

100%. Some will say schools should have shut days/weeks ago, some will say they shouldn't shut, some will say force business closures and some won't. If the Government done certain things months ago, many would say it was way over the top and no need and they are clueless.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, and you still don't know if certain things happened months ago we would be better off.

Here's something.

Given most of society is basically shutting down, is the stock market/financial/currency markets still a vital function in such times?

Can't work it out- Food supplies- yes. Hospitals- yes. Pharmacy- Quite probbaly.

Stock markets- and I mean globally as you can't have one nation shutting and leaving itself open- but should it be suspended globally for a period?

Currently at our surgery we have one young member of staff off work almost certainly with the virus, and our manager gone due to a family member in a similar situation. No deep cleaning whatever that is, as they have not been able to get a test and therefore can't confirm the diagnosis . I believe a neighbouring surgery is in a similar situation.

Today's update has confirmed the COVID Home Management Service will not be mobilised at a local level, suggesting they were not able to recruit enough idiots willing to do this job. Therefore responsibility has been handed back to the GP's or providers as we're affectionately known. As things stand we've been given about 6 of the masks that everyone knows don't work and a roll of clingfilm to protect ourselves with.

I've had a completely serious conversation with one of my partners this evening with regards to how accurately we'll be able to determine someone's need for admission over the phone on the basis of how distressed their breathing sounds, as quite frankly we're unwilling to assess these patients in person without suitable protection.

Either way I suspect many front line medics will be unavailable in the near future and my intent is not to alarm, but suggest you don't go down the pub this evening , visit the gym etc. Be as antisocial as possible.

Three points to make, firstly this is at a local level and may not represent all of you, secondly I'm very alarmed and thirdly the clingfilm was a joke , they were going to give it to us but Tesco had run out.

If there are any inaccuracies in this I apologise , but it is my understanding.

The EFL Board met today to discuss the implications of the COVID-19 outbreak for the League and its Clubs.

After receiving a detailed brief on a number of matters, the Board reaffirmed that the health and well-being of EFL staff, players, Club employees and supporters would remain central to all decisions in these fast-changing circumstances.

The EFL Board also acknowledges the positive role that member Clubs are playing in community solidarity, especially in supporting the vulnerable at this time.

2019/20 SEASON SCHEDULE

The primary objective, in order to protect competition integrity, is to deliver a successful conclusion to the 2019/20 season, subject to the over-riding priority around health and well-being. Plans continue to be developed on the agreed principle that it is in the best interests of the EFL and Clubs to complete the current season at the appropriate time.

The EFL is continuing regular dialogue with the Government and relevant health authorities and, as and when more information is known regarding the scale and extent of the coronavirus outbreak in this country, a decision will be taken on the resumption of the League’s fixtures.

Conversations will continue with the EFL’s counterparts at the FA, the Premier League, the PFA and the LMA to ensure football achieves a joined-up and collaborative approach.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

As part of the League’s continued contingency planning, the Board heard the comments and observations from EFL Clubs, before discussing a number of issues including the current financial position and implications, insurance, regulatory matters and broadcasting arrangements.

Discussions centred on financial relief for Clubs in the short term and while there is no one single solution, measures are to be put in place to immediately assist with cash flow via a £50million short-term relief package.

This fund consists of the remaining Basic Award payments being advanced to Clubs immediately, with the remainder made up through interest-free loan facility available to Clubs, calculated in line with the EFL’s Article of Associations.

The cash injection is included as part of a series of measures, that includes potential Government support to help Clubs and their associated businesses through this period of uncertainty. The EFL welcomes last night’s announcement made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and is continuing discussions to understand how our Clubs can access the funding made available to support businesses.

In addition, we will continue our discussions with our football partners to determine how we can all get through this difficult, challenging and unprecedented situation.

CONTINGENCY PLANNING

The EFL, through a dedicated taskforce, continues to review the threat posed by the coronavirus pandemic, and its impact on our Clubs and competitions.

Alongside ensuring the 2019/20 season reaches a successful conclusion, protecting the EFL and its Clubs is a key priority for the EFL Board, who have today agreed on the following objectives to support future decision-making:

• Ensure the health and well-being of our Clubs’ employees, supporters and communities
• Make a positive contribution to the UK’s efforts to tackle coronavirus
• Protect the EFL’s financial model and Club finances
• Enable the EFL to continue to function as a business 
• Deliver a successful conclusion to the 2019/20 season

Its similar to the arseholes who panic and bulk buy leaving others with nothing, selfish ignorant *****.

Just saw on the news ********* queuing at 06.30 outside supermarkets to get at bog rolls, pasta, tins, sanitisers etc. 

But common sense from suppliers will prevail with all supermarkets putting limits on items (doesn't stop 3 or 4 members of the same family buying separately) and some having shopping hours for the elderly with full stocks of essential items.

Its these arseholes that cause issues and they can't be trusted with information as they are stupid.

There you go - did your rant for you :)

The panic buying really annoys me.

Shops are being restocked, but the moment people see an empty shelf, they default to 'eek! They didn't have any last time I looked, I'll buy as much as I can when I next see it!'

You won't be anymore hungry than usual during this time, so you don't need to buy any more than usual. It isn't difficult.

People will still need to get pharmacy related stuff, but eat in particular.

Judging by the empty shelves and the stockpiling that has taken place, a big chuck of the population have enough pasta/rice/spuds/eggs/milk in to feed themselves until Christmas!
