    I went to Morrisons in Malton today and the shelves were almost fully stocked. There was hardly anyone in there, in fact, there were more people with motorbikes outside the Seaways cafe in Fridaythorpe. At least 100. What do these clown shoes not understand about 'social distancing'? Supposedly loads of folks at the seaside, too.

    **** this virus, me and the wife are 64, she’s got heart condition and I’ve had a bypass, and I’m supposed to have an appointment at Castle Hill next Saturday with a cardiologist. Seriously scary times, and still people pretending it won’t happen to them

    I was at the HRI physio department yesterday, there's usually about fifteen of us there, myself and another four turned up. Fracture clinic on Tuesday were processing the elderly and virus susceptible patients first. If you go on Saturday, use the hand sanitisers (I know you will) as it's surprising how many people are still walking right past them, morons!

    It is scary
    And we should all take it seriously
    But don’t worry unnecessarily about the death being at Castle Hill.
    It is the centre for infectious diseases for a wide area (hence the early ones from York being brought there) and so they will be better prepared than most for managing it and will have those people well away from normal cardio appointments.
    Obviously take general care and distance yourself from people as far as you can, but Castle Hill won’t be more dangerous than other hospitals
    Hope it goes well anyway

    Malarial drug chloroquine may help according to several studies (and Donald Trump - that's enough to put you off). It is possible to acquire it online, although Nigerians have already been poisoning themselves by taking too much pre-emptively. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/51980731

    Taken off Facebook, but relevant for anyone on here who are key workers or who know any key workers

    “Just a reminder to parents, that the guidelines state that if you can keep your child at home then you should do so.

    There is a lot of confusion about this. It is NOT compulsory for key workers' children to attend next week. It is NOT an option for children to dip in and out of. It is an EMERGENCY childcare provision, and if children can be left at home safely because there is adequate care or they are old and responsible enough this is what MUST happen. The whole point is to reduce the spread of the transmission. Therefore schools are "open", but therefore only want the absolute minimum number of absolutly essential number of students, so that they can deploy the minimum number of staff and therefore expose the minimum number of children, staff and THEIR FAMILIES to this extreme risk.

    Sending your child to school because 'they will miss their friends', 'they will get bored', 'you can't manage them at home' etc is irresponsible and not valid reasons. Please only use this emergency service if it is absolutely nessecary. PLEASE HELP STOP THE SPREAD!!

    Nurses, doctors, ANYONE on the medical teams etc are doing an AMAZING job, let's help them by not sending more infected people to their wards!!”
