At a rough guess, I would say September, and that is being optimistic.

It is not safe until we reach herd immunity and/or have a vaccine... both are a long way away. Pucker up, this is going to take a while.

Of course, I wonder when the vulnerable, will be safe to come out, or when friends and family , will be safe to meet them. Unless they get a vaccine, we will be talking to our elderly loved ones and friends, (from a safe distance) this time next year :(

I doesn't make good reading, should have done what the Chinese did blah blah, proper testing, proper isolation of those infected, proper tracing of people that have been in contact with infected people, it wasn't rocket science to learn best practice from others, I was saying it from the start that we should have done the proven good things that others had done like the Chinese but Boris and his advisors were asleep at the wheel.
Boris and our Government had a few weeks head start over other countries but have wasted it, following some herd plan that no other country was doing would have overwhelmed the NHS with casualties combined with austerity measures meaning we have not got the intensive care beds that the likes of Italy and Germany have we have been left in a vunerable position by our leaders in Westminster.

Divorce rate will be astronomical. Seriously.

More seriously, those poor women that suffer domestic abuse (and men, of course), will have no respite or escape.

Until the vaccine comes we are stuffed aren’t we? Even with herd, the more at risk people who haven’t had it would still risking intensive care and a toss of a coin survival risk. As indeed might be younger fitter people by the sound of the thing. It surely must change the way the whole world operates.

What no oher country is doing? Sweden? What are they doing?

http://theconversation.com/sweden-under-fire-for-relaxed-coronavirus-approach-he

Russia (whether it's true or false) was claiming it doesn't have a Covid epidemic and hasn't done very much,

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52061381

Asking people to take a week off and stay at home, hardly a lockdown. Countries are doing what they feel they must and that is not exctly the same for everyone. Whether that's right or wrong only time will tell.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

With countries having different ways of quarantine , when some travel restrictions are lifted and still no vaccine, this will only continue.
Have said all along this'll go on for 12/18 months.

I've been DIY grade 2 for years now so I'm closer to Fester than it because, as the grey hairs spread I've been cropping closer and closer!

I have just been told and hopefully this really is fake news, the market in Wuhan where this supposedly started has opened back up. Has anyone else seen or been told this?

If it comes own to strangers or my wife.....I'll go for the dog! She reckons I love him more anyway.

Now about mental health, maybe we could have a Planetswans quiz, not just sport either. Take it in turns a couple of times a week. First person with all the right answers wins. Just for fun.

It was.

The Wales v Scotland game was called off at the last minute just 15 days ago and the Stereophonics played the Motorpoint arena two weeks ago today.

It’s been a long two weeks...
