    Yeah, that’s brilliant.

    Know of a guy who’s got a chain of pubs in the midlands who was so glad at the government bail out that he offered his 66 staff, including himself, to the NHS, for free until this is over.

    There are plenty of great stories among all the selfishness.

    You are right to be proud of her, what she is doing at the moment is making the difference between life and death. I am sure you reminder of that but please let her know there are plenty of people out here that who thank her for what she is doing.

    Would be in line with what’s happened here in Spain. Only supermarkets, pharmacies, banks and petrol stations open right now. Still a few places doing delivery meals and such but all non essential retail shut.

    Just read this article which suggests that two thirds of patients who fall critically ill are due to Obesity according to NHS data and 40% are under the age of 60.
    • Excess weight against chest makes it harder for muscles to draw in deep breath
    • Weak immune system allows COVID-19 to spread to lungs and cause pneumonia
    • These two factors may explain why two thirds of ICU coronavirus patients obese

    Think the Netherlands is being pragmatic. Better to set a distant date that covers major festivals (Easter/King's Day) and commemorations (Liberation Day), as that then allows people to get it into their minds that this will be one long slog. If the ban is lifted earlier, which if people adhere it could be, the greater the relief.
