    Unfortunately, Mrs B's step-father's test results are in and are positive for Coronavirus. He was admitted to hospital with pneumonia, which has responded well to antibiotics and currently, he is improving but for how long is uncertain. Understandably, the hospital want to release him but there's nowhere for him to go where he won't be likely to infect more people.

    Her mum has been very unwell over the last few days with flu like symptoms and has been told by the hospital doctors (without testing) that she almost certainly has the virus. She can scarcely look after herself right now, let alone her husband and exposing a whole load of carers isn't likely to be helping anyone, so he remains in hospital whilst bed space is so terribly scarce.

    Mrs B is understandably very upset and worried but is a real ****ing trooper and tougher than most marines. Tomorrow is her birthday but it's not going to be a particularly happy one.

    We last saw them 13 days ago. On the basis of current advice, the likelihood is that we don't have it or have had an extremely mild reaction to it. Whatever, this evening has been very tough.

    Everyone out there stay safe!

    Cheers. Unfortunately, we're not unusual right now.

    The world's going to be a different place at the end of all this. Let's hope that it's better.

    Mrs B says thanks for all the good wishes!

    Maybe, with stuff like this, there's still hope for the human race...

    Dinamo Minsk against Minsk at the Dinamo Stadium... in Minsk. Don't go to the Minsk Stadium by mistake, anyone.

    This afternoon, Mrs B and I went round to her mother's place to drop off some shopping and some meals that I'd cooked for her to microwave.

    This evening, she rang Mrs B to say that I'd put too much garlic and oregano in the bolognaise sauce....I'm more likely to kill her than this virus!
