Hi Craig,

know you're getting on a bit,

perhaps I'd better get those Lancs in the post to you to give you something to do while you're locked down for the next 12 weeks  :smiley-laughing:

Ha, @class37025, not quite into the "At Risk" category just yet!!!!!

Oh yeah lock us down for 3 months, suits me, spuds are waiting to go in, barley contract sorted, lambs nearly done.

All lock down means to us is no holiday, whatever one of them is!!!!

Here's a mathematical analysis which is the most informative analysis of what's really happening that I've seen. The author makes a compelling case for why social distancing is absolutely necessary. The alternative of sitting on our hands is not very pretty.

https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca

Here are a few tidbits (quotes) from the article to whet your appetite:

1. France claims 1,400 cases today and 30 deaths. Using the two methods above, you can have a range of cases: between 24,000 and 140,000.

Let me repeat that: the number of true cases in France is likely to be between one and two orders or magnitude higher than it is officially reported.

2. If youre still hesitating because nobody is showing symptoms, just realize 26% of contagions happen before there are symptoms.

3. Countries that are prepared will see a fatality rate of ~0.5% (South Korea) to 0.9% (rest of China). Countries that are overwhelmed will have a fatality rate between ~3%-5%

The only bright side that I can see for me is that I have enough paint, plaster, wire, glue, and kits to build to last me a prolonged quarantine.

Excellent post @Webbo  :thumbsup:

This pandemic is changing the world and it is the duty and responsibility of everyone to protect themselves and all those who they would normally come into contact.

No-one, but no-one is immune to this pernicious virus, and as we are now learning the hard way, it is not just the old and infirm who are being affected. All age groups, healthy or not, can be at risk, and all members of society can transmit the virus to others, even if it may not affect them directly or they only show mild symptoms.

It is clear that this virus has only just begun to display its power. Please, please, please, do your utmost to keep the wolf at bay. Do not be one of those who may look back one day and say I wish Id done more. I wish they were still here.

For all our futures sake.
