    What's happening with the homeless during these curfews? We have many in the city centre here in York, but they have nobody to beg from now.

    I wonder what's to stop this happening again a year, two years from now with a new virus that doesn't have a vaccine.

    And what we could possibly do to stop the country being shut down again. It's been a real eye-opener.

    Not much mate.

    Also note Shelter have said that every time someone displayed symptoms the whole residence had to be turfed out onto the streets.

    I imagine that became automatic after the lockdown and social distancing came into effect on Monday.

    I suspect China went on a massive testing spree and found lots of infected people who were showing no symptoms or mild ones that wouldn't be discovered here. And I'm noit counting on China to be open and honest with their figures either.

    Some positives have come from this; It's taught us as I always suspected, that not every person needs to see a doctor face to face, there are many things that can be resolved online and over the telephone that can ease the pressures. Not everyone needs to be commuting everyday, and with increased populations and worries of pollution, we can be more Green. Hong Kong proved that kids can be taught from home in a crisis, with the teacher helping the kids interactively. We need to look at our distribution networks and how to ease the burden in a future crisis. We learned spending poorly on the NHS will cost lives later and bankrupt the economy. So many lessons, but will we learn from them, I doubt it.

    Agree with that. And the sweet irony of what you say about not funding the NHS could end up bankrupting the economy.

    Only thing I'm not sure about is seeing the doctor face to face. Speak with a GP about how the public have responded to not getting appointments or having to do things over the phone. They are getting dogs abuse from some right fcking tards. Probably the same morons that raid supermarkets for bog rolls.

    The only reason a person should need to see a doctor is for a diagnosis. Once that diagnosis is done, there is not a lot else a doctor can do for a person, unless they think the doctor has some magic wand to make them better. The outcome will be a referral or a prescription, so once the initial stage is done, returning for another prescription or chasing a referral is pointless, it can be done online or over the telephone, turning up to a surgery is not going to make things happen any quicker. Yes, there are times when that initial face to face has to be done, but a doctor is not there to hold your hand thereafter.

    You'd just think people would understand a little bit given the circumstances. A GP (who is a parent of a child I tutor... online now) was telling me yesterday that she had, had a **** day for the crap she was getting. She said something like "Why can't they understand that physiotherapy is not the biggest priority right now" <laugh> and another reason was sick notes. I think there's been some instruction not to issue them and people were giving her grief over it. The impression I got was none of it was pressing or urgent issues.

    And by funding I mean Properly .

    Thank you for confirming that you are just as humourless in a fake apocalypse as you are in normal times.
