You're ok in the week but if it's dry and sunny of a weekend I'd give it a miss.
Anyone else obsessively refreshing Major Tom's page to see if he gets to £10 million?
He's now made over £10m according to BBC news.
He's finished and over 12 million now.
Well done Tom !
Make of this what you will ....
The graph below is the 7-Point Moving Average of UK deaths in hospital due to coronavirus. It's calculated by adding up a day's number of deaths to the number of deaths 3 days before and after it, and dividing by 7. So the latest figure is centred on April 13th, though it does take into account today's figure (April 16th) and figures from April 10th. It's done this way to smooth out randomness and the vagaries of the reporting cycle, like weekends and, last week, the Bank Holiday. (The "raw" figures are shown in the Spoiler.) As I say, make of it what you will.
ETA I should just mention that the figure I put in for March 25th (I think) is an estimate. They changed the reporting period on that day to just 8 hours, though an especially busy 8 hours it seems. The figure I put in is in line with the graph in the Spoiler.
On the Moneysavingexpert email the answer to the question whether you can be furloughed if you are a key worker is yes according to the government. Unfortunately there is no link. I have searched to no avail. Is there anyone with expertise in this subject on the forum?
Thankyou in advance to anyone who may help.
Driving to the countryside and walking – where more time is spent doing the latter than the former – is among a list of reasonable excuses for Britons leaving their home during the coronavirus lockdown, according to advice issued to police.
2 Laps of the Cotswolds today without leaving home.
Reasonable excuses for leaving your house, the police version.
So have been any actual cases in Stafford itself (well and the suburbs I guess). I do searches and find little other than for the Stafford's of the USA.
You may or may not know that I work in a Supermarket so I'm still mixing with a lot of people... I've spoken to numerous people who have relatives that have had and are recovering from it (in the Stafford and Manchester areas) , but only 1 lady that has had it herself, she's a stafford local, in her 70's, and has recovered... It was really heartwarming to hear of people getting better...
I can't say an awful lot, even if I'm not naming anyone, but I believe there's been some confirmed cases at St.Georges. If a patient tests positive, they are moved to an isolation ward, worse case scenario, they get sent up the County or Stoke.
I know of an 86 year old who died and lived in Stafford and a 45 year old who worked in Stafford
Rest in peace
Not sure about Stafford itself but over 1200 confirmed cases in Staffordshire County.
Thanks. Seems to eb the same all over, getting specific local info is difficult.
Probably because most people aren't being tested. I know at least 4 people who believe they've had it, but it's just that without the test.
BBC news reported that one of County hospitals male nurses, had died from it very recently...
