  1. What changed my mine from this is the one to just another sars1 that fizzles out, was the spread in London or lack of spread. Very little social distancing happened and it has already died out.
  2. Yep, just like in Spain: "Spain will lift a requirement for foreign tourists to undergo a two-week quarantine from July 1, the government has said in a statement. Under current restrictions, visitors from abroad must isolate themselves for two weeks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Foreign Minister Arancha Gonzalez Laya had previously said the measure would be relaxed in July, without specifying the date. It has already been announced that Spanish soccer's La Liga will be back on the week of 8 June."
  3. Cummings to make statement and take questions. The media is going to be red faced after this. Forced to bring up his son's health.
  4. Teaching is one of the jobs that's ripe for automation. The gov just needs to advise parents to use facilities like Khans academy and perhaps announce the creation of UK version of it. Teachers would back to work next Monday.
  5. One of these witnesses, a teacher (surprise surprise) took down his number plate when he spotted him . If you did that kind of thing here in NI you could be done for gathering information likely to be used for terrorism.
  6. I see Austria are offering testing at Vienna airport, results in 3-6 hours. I suspect this it the way airports will go especially when testing becomes faster. https://www.viennaairport.com/pcrtest "Arriving passengers - with residence in Austria and a valid residence permit - without a valid medical certificate can get tested at the airport. If the test findings are negative, the passenger does not have to stay in self-quarantine for 14 days after arriving in Austria. In this way, quarantine periods which have already been commenced can also be prematurely terminated. Passengers departing from Vienna Airport can use the medical certificate from the COVID-19 test to prove that they are not infected with the coronavirus."
  7. It's aimed at the working class. If you take a fortnight of work to go on a foreign holiday. More than likely your employer will know and expect you to go into a fortnight unpaid quarantine when you get back. Therefore average Joe won't take a foreign holiday.
  8. Let's revisited in a years time after the "2nd wave". If I'm wrong I will hold my hands up and admit it. Will you?
  9. Don't need to be a scientist to know that it is bullshit. Hospitals have been virtually empty. People walking the streets as normal, parks full and no sign of the 100s of thousand of deaths. Majority of countries are already opening up as they don't treat their citizens like children. Unlike us taking orders from a bunch of civil servants (scientists).
