    No but they are all saying it's likely, just like they say it's likely there will be a second wave which you have taken as gospel.

    Yes. Except when you're under a metre away from an infected person is breathing or talking - especially in an enclosed space when aerosol transmission is taking place.

    Park and ride encouraged

    Voucher to do up old bikes,really pushing people into walking and cycling

    In July we will look at how we can open up hospitality

    More people are dying in care homes from it at the moment than in hospitals and they dont collect stats in England over weekends (and probably bank holidays). The QCC dont publish stats so we haven't a clue as to when the deaths occurred.

    Only if you have symptoms, live over 250 miles away, and are called Dominic Cummings

    So is the WHO as it clearly spreads in aerosol droplets in close contact enclosed spaces. Far too many reports an papers for it not to do so.
    They sort of alude to the fact it can spread in this way but wont admit to it as they would lose face.
    They may as well admit it as they have totally lost credibility after kowtowing to China so getting some credibility back would show they are science based.

    Can't our dickhead media show any interest in the actual virus, rather than banging on about bloody Cummings. They don't give a shit really about anything other than trying to score points and stick the boot in.

    5 'journalists' so far have had the chance to put questions forward and not a single question about anything other than Cummings.
