Corona virus on its own thread.

Can I just clarify something here ?

I live on my own and so does my 87 year old dad. I get all his shopping for him, pay his bills etc as he can't get out and has poor mobility. In March till about July last year I was not allowed to go into his house to give him his things and basically look after him. I assume from todays statement that we are now back to this again ?
Do what I'm doing.Move in with him an apply for Carers allowance.The state has no problem me doing this.
 
In fairness we have a better idea of when the virus is most likely to spread. The risk outdoors is low if social distancing is maintained so keeping parks, zoos, gardens open and allowing unlimited exercise etc. makes sense to minimise other harms.

I'm surprised to hear gyms and kids team sports are back as I thought they'd closed with tier 4 restrictions.
Sorry wasn't clear its outdoor gyms which I presume is they daft things in parks and pt sessions, youth sports still on on though, under 13s can have 15 people and 2 adults

Ah, OK. I think it's all supposed to be physically distanced and outdoors although I can't imagine how that would work with a bunch of 7 year olds.

I know Spartans and probably others took the decision to stop until we're back to level 3.

Not sure many outdoor gyms really exist but from what I can gather you can do individual exercise or exercise within your bubble in parks or outdoor fitness areas, no outdoor boot camps, classes etc

If its a complete lockdown then my work give me time off to watch the wee man as the wife is a pharmacist.

If childcare is allowed like this he goes to both sets of grandparents and his auntie and uncle a day each during the week. Not really a lockdown if I still have to see family constantly. Wonder how many people with informal childcare are in the same boat.

Less than 10% of students took the test and not compulsory this time too. Students can go on campus from tomorrow to use study spaces and hand on classes. Pollock halls have went from 5% to 40% full on Sunday

Was that across Scotland? My two sons (on at Uni of Glasgow and one at Uni of Dundee) both took their two tests before coming home at Christmas and have had no correspondence about what to do when they go back.

No Edinburgh uni figures. There's a meeting at 11 between heads of the unis and Scottish government. I'll pm you if I hear anything, but it might be in the press or government statement before uni's find out

I did wonder as I think uptake of the tests at other Uni's was much better? Lets be honest the majority of students do not need to return to Uni, but the kids want to be with their pals, not their boring auld parents and the Uni's want the accomodation income.

Mrs Jackie was at a funeral recently.

The lead mourner will have made up a list of the 20 people with the funeral people.

If you're on the list I don't see why not, even if its in Glasgow.

London declared a major incident.
1 in 30 London residents have have the virus
I think we're going to see similar everywhere to be honest.

Scotland has just recorded its worst figures of the pandemic.

Globally rates are soaring. I don't think it will be long (a week or so maybe) before we see the first 1,000,000* new cases in a day!

Probably around the same time we go through the 2,000,000* deaths barrier.

In other news there's a 3rd vaccine got the OK for the UK ... but it won't arrive in the country till the spring 🙄

Travellers to the UK will require a negative test before they get on the plane (or whatever). Good news ... about a year late!


* Officially recorded that is. I still have my doubts about many countries providing accurate data and other countries being able to provide it at all.
