I’m going to go with ‘fuck off!’ Come together as a community as I hide behind my castle walls with armed guards and mountains of fucking luxury food.

You heartless bastards, they had to cancel a reception and the 100 grand spread went to waste. Even her corgi's are pissed off eating Beluga caviar.

Figures in for Italy now, 427 new deaths and 5322 new cases, poor sods are getting hammered on a daily basis. 

It'll be the same over here in London soon thanks to the useless cunt in charge.

That was a fucking circus show. Worst one yet.

 

The man is so fucking deluded, it's ridiculous. 3 months? Good luck with that you retarted cunt.

 

Italy have been on lockdown for 11 days and their numbers are out of control. They've extended the lockdown indefinitely.

 

We're not even gone to those measures yet and our numbers are spiralling.

 

This sums it all up:

These broadcasts are toe-cringing stuff.

 

I can't believe that is our Prime Minister and the country's foremost medical and scientific brains and they produce that. It's fucking abysmal , and I noticed the way Johnson sneaked in quickly at the end that they are looking to take them remote, obviously to avoid any ' interrogation ' i.e. one question asking him to clarify a soundbite.

In other news my sister has had it. Not tested, but her resting heart rate of 60 was going as high as 108 without exercise. She had sats of 97 and a tempt of 38 point something. She also had chest pains. She's on the mend now, just aching like mad and coughing, but already working from home.

 

It seems a very large number of fit and healthy people will be asymptomatic or experience mild symptoms, so many of us could have it and not know.

 

I wonder if the increased numbers of young people in the USA is to do with the obesity or their massive amount of pharmaceutical usage? There seems to be a variable there, as it's very different than other countries. 

That's weird. One day last week I had a tight chest - just thought it was indigestion or reflux. But I was out of breath a few times and was roasting all morning in work - literally sweating. It went by the afternoon and I'd forgotten all about it. Didn't think those symptoms were anything to do with the virus. 

 

Strange times.

I got a bad headache earlier and basically told myself that was it, flu setting in. Glass of water fixed it but still, it's not like me to be a hypochondriac. 

 

All this is unprecedented and I can't say it not affecting me. 

 

I'm particularly lucky in that I can work from home forever with no real effect on my work, so nothing else to complain about apart from being a bit worried.

Hopefully not mate, trends aren't looking good though. Cases are rising in Germany at an alarming rate as well, despite all the measures. Thankfully the mortality rate is a lot less than other countries, which could be down to many factors, but mainly due to the fact they have a great healthcare system with the ICU beds etc.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is in talks to buy a coronavirus antibody test that could be a game changer if it works, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday. 

“We are in negotiations today to buy a so-called antibody test, as simple as a pregnancy test, that can tell whether you have had the disease,” Johnson said. 

“It is early days but if it works as its proponents claim, then we will buy literally hundreds of thousands of these kits as soon as practicable because obviously it has the potential to be a total game changer,” he told reporters.

The whole family have had all those symptoms, even the two youngest lads. Just putting it down to a seasonal virus though as despite hot and cold flushes none of us have had a fever. In fact my temperature is hovering around 34.9, so I'll probably die of hypothermia.

Budget airline EasyJet has asked pilots and cabin crew to agree to sweeping changes in their terms and conditions, as part of its response to coronavirus.
Among the proposed changes are a freeze on planned pay rises and a requirement to take three months of unpaid leave. 
The airline would also no longer provide food for crew during their shifts, only water.
People close to the talks said the proposals went down very badly, particularly among pilots.
However, there remains a willingness to make concessions in order to avoid redundancies. 
Further talks between EasyJet and unions representing pilots and cabin crew are expected today.
Meanwhile, EasyJet's chief executive Johan Lundgren has defended the payment of £170m in dividends to shareholders, at a time when the company is seeking financial help from the government.

That cunt was on Peston yesterday saying EJ needed a number of bail out from the government and was in discussions with unions in terms of future for their employees.

 

That on top of Gatwick bosses taking a massive 20% pay cut, but laying off staff and that Branson cunt.

 

One thing we've learnt from this crisis, is that the aviation industry are pure evil cunts.

I've just mentioned it to the wife and she said a few people in her work (a school) complained of the same thing. Weird.

    • This makes sense.   I'm sure an organisation like FIFA will see the value in waving goodbye to over a billion quid so that the AFCON and a few leagues can have plenty of time to finish their seasons without having to overwork the players.   After all, for FIFA, it's really always been about player welfare over money.
    • Jürgen Klopp has struck a realistic tone when discussing the likelihood of big money transfers arriving at Liverpool this summer.

      The fan reaction to the Reds deciding to pass on Timo Werner has been mixed with the club owners coming in for some criticism especially as he seemed to be a player that Klopp was reportedly very keen on.

      But on the other side of the coin, there were some astute voices casting doubt on whether the striker was all that keen on the move, especially as he was far from guaranteed to be a consistent starter, and indeed if would be a good fit for the side.

      Klopp spoke yesterday to Sky Germany (via The Mirror) regarding Werner and another player who has been linked in exciting midfielder Kai Havertz.

      And he said in the current climate, all best laid plans are out of the window.

      “There are a lot of good players on this planet.

      “Timo Werner is a great player, Kai Havertz is a great player.

      “Right time, opportunity - everything has to come together. Six, seven weeks ago, we didn't know if we could play again this year. 

      “If we hadn't played the second half of the season, we would have thought, 'OK, when can you really play football again?' And now it starts right away.

      “We act as if everything is already settled. It's not settled. 

      “We use this little loophole we've been left to play football again Everything else we have to see the moment it happens. 

      “We can't pretend now that everything's going to be fine in the future.

      “Discussing with the players about things like salary waivers and on the other hand buying a player for £50-60m, we have to explain."

      Klopp raised a valid point when mentioning that Football clubs have a lot more to weigh up other than just comings and goings in the transfer window at this point of time.

      "There are all sorts of rumours in England about who Manchester United are going to pick, Chelsea are going to pick.

      "It's rather quiet here (at Liverpool) at the moment, I think it's safe to say. 

      “If you want to take it seriously and run a normal business and depend on income and have no idea how much you will earn... especially because we don't know when we can start playing with spectators again.

      "At the moment, all clubs are losing money. Without spectators, we have to pay back the season tickets and probably sell none next year. 

      “At least maybe without the first 10 or 15 games. The VIP areas won't be packed and the tickets won't be sold. This will have an impact on other partners and things will look a bit different.

      Going by what the manager said, it seems like the dream of seeing the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Jadon Sancho, or Adama Traore wearing the Red of Liverpool may be on hold for the time being.

      On a more positive note, Klopp signalled the chance for fans to salute their heroes in grand style even if it has to be sometime during next season.

            “There comes a day when life will get back to normal.   “When someone has found the vaccine, when someone has found a solution to the problem, when infection rates are zero or below - that day will come eventually. Then we have the right to celebrate what we want to celebrate on that day.

      "If this is the 12th or 13th matchday of next season and we want to celebrate it - who is going to stop it? 

      “Then we still have the trophy and then we can drive it around town and stand on the bus. If other people then think that we are completely crazy, I honestly don't care.”

      “Can it then still be a special celebration? No question. It's different, but different is sometimes absolutely OK."

      As well as the global pandemic, the world has been unified by the tragic death of George Floyd under the watch of members of the Minneapolis Police force.

      People taking to streets has become the norm and Footballers have also been at the forefront making their views known on the matter including the Reds squad who "took a knee" at training last week.

      Klopp was extremely proud of the stance they took.

      “It's so natural for us that we didn't even think about sending a message at first. 

      "Because it's completely normal, nobody realised that we would have to say it again. But then the boys noticed it. Then they spontaneously decided to do it.

      "I have been very proud of the boys for a long time, but this was another extraordinary moment. When I saw them there and this photo was taken, I was really proud, because it is also an important message. 

      “No question about it."
