    Lots of leading scientists, including SAGE scientists who advise the government, saying we are ending the lockdown too soon and predicting it will cost thousands of lives. If you are worried, sign and share this petition. http://chng.it/NGPfKBq6

    Will you get the vaccine if it becomes available?

    As pointed out, the Oxford vaccine (and others?) are hardly getting tested properly in this current climate of falling cases. Testing (deliberate exposure to virus after vaccine infusion) on humans, prisoners or volunteers would have provided crucial evidence. However due to ethics that will...

    Europe approach vs UK approach

    I get the impression Europe may return to normal life more than UK. Some of the stuff I have read in the UK is bonkers “a new normal” here is a good tweet I will share Should we expect any less from a nation who thought up the sugar tax and congestion charges in London.

    Your last pre-Lockdown photo

    Seems to be trending on Twitter at the moment following a BBC article. My last photo on my phone was from March 14th and taken on a short road trip to the rainy Highlands. It’s of the Kylesku Bridge in Sutherland, one of my favourites. Post yours if you fancy.

    Should key worker pay be frozen?

    A couple of days back the treasury looked at options available to recover national debt caused by Covid19. One of the options was to freeze pay increases of key workers for two years. Will the key workers accept clapping every Thursday night as a substitute for their annual pay increments?

    COVID-19 Tracking Resources

    I couldn't find any threads offering tracking resources apart from the locked thread above, which I couldn't contribute to.

So in the brave new world of "ramped up capacity", thought I'd apply for a test. Went online (Apply for a coronavirus test) & registered easily...

    When will the clapping stop?

    Ok, so I'm 100 % behind the NHS and all the staff who are on the front line, putting their lives at risk. When I first saw the clapping from the balconies in Italy it bought a tear to my eye. When I stood in our street, surrounded by our neighbours, some of whom we never really see, it bought a...

    what are the rules for non essential businesses?

    what are the rules for non essential businesses? People are allowed to travel to work if they cannot work from home. what’s the difference between travelling to an office and travelling to an outdoor location? what if I’m a professional landscape photographer?

    Have things gone too far?

    Submarine Captain under investigation Having spent many weeks at sea, and unable to go home before going back to sea, the Captain decided to hold a bbq for his crew. He is now under investigation as a bbq is "inappropriate" at this time due to covid. Thoughts.

    Will you install the NHS COVID-19 track and trace app on your Smartphone?

    Was spoken about more at today's evening briefing, so I'm wondering. Would you be happy to install whatever Official App this ends up being on your smartphone, to enable you to be notified if you had been in close proximity to someone for a while, who has since developed to the virus? Or are you...
