Spare a thought for the poor satirists. Truly they are the real victims of the cruel hand fate has played us.
Two examples of stories I've seen today, which if you came across them under normal circumstances, you would check the date of the article; expecting it to be 1 April.
I don't recall seeing either of these in the main coronavirus thread; and they deserve a thread of their own alongside any other egregious examples spotted in the wild.
1) The Iranian military have announced the invention of a device which can detect coronavirus at a range of up to 100 metres, with 80% accuracy. It looks like tho old golfball detector scam has had new life breathed into it https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/04/17/iran_coronavirus_detector/
2) Richard Branson is going to put up Necker Island as collateral against a bailout loan from the government. This was actually an April Fool's story from Guido Fawkes until someone from Virgin's PR dept saw it and thought, "What a good idea!" https://order-order.com/2020/04/20/branson-pledges-necker-island-bailout-collateral/
My favourite part of Dosbods is the concentration of information, facts and figures posted here.
@Chewing Grass has posted some really useful graphs on infection and mortality rate.
I was thinking a thread of COVID19 graphs, charts and data - all found in one place might enhance our experience?
@Chewing Grass Please repost some of your best data if you could.
Right then...I will start it off....
By This Time
I've been self isolating since Monday morning as I have health issues. Husband's office is closed since yesterday as ten people we're at a conference with a known case last week. We're now both self isolating due to mild coughs.
I made til yesterday before cracking open the medicinal Brandy at 8am (French coffee) after my husband got the call. Annoyingly we've been caught on the hop fresh food wise as he forgot to go shopping on the way home on Wednesday (fridge has been mostly crammed to bursting the last month). Can't get a supermarket delivery til Monday.
