    if the new virus testing kits are reliable then initiate a mass testing strategy and the coronavirus will be on the run.

    Edit: Turns out it's not a test for the virus but an antibody test. Sorry misunderstood.

    They are encouraging. It's an epidemic that looks like it is peaking.

    Was told by my bosses that you don't get 80% unless you are laid off permanently. It's a real grey area and sure it will be abused by companies. I've had to stop work but some of our guys are still working. I said I deserve a bit of loyalty after 26 years and it fell on deaf ears

    I said I would go home as I thought it was the best thing to do.
    My wife's a nurse so I want to reduce the chance of getting it and passing it to her.
    If I'm not going to get 80% I'm sorry but I simply will have to go to work

    I bet some firms will get the grant but not pass it on because times are desperate and they might get away with it

    You know I’m not talking about that sort of thing.

    Italy’s numbers not too bad. It’s been 5 days now since that shocker on Saturday and they haven’t surpassed that 793 yet. Fingers crossed!
