Well it appears we may have it - just heard a Doctor describe the symptoms and it matches ours 100% - not quite a cold and not quite flu. Carina is suffering a lot more than me, but in reality for us

UK Virus ALERT   The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent virus threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, level may be raised

I don’t even find it boring to stay inside all day ...but I don’t understand why in one box of rice krispies there are 2453 pieces, and in the other one 2467!

The wife and I came back from holiday on Saturday night. On Sunday we did an efficient shop at the Asda together, we got to the toilet roll aisle and couldn't believe it... the shelves were empty again. Everybody must be crapping themselves about the onset of a second wave.

I just don't get the panic buying of toilet rolls. I really don't. Fcuktards are everywhere.

If anyone can explain why people are panic buying toilet rolls I'm receptive to being educated.

Just got this circular message from my Dentist. 60 minute gaps between appointments! That's nuts!

The capacity of all dental practices to provide NHS care is currently very limited

As with all dental providers, we must follow the Covid-19 safety procedures set by the government for NHS dental care. This includes leaving a 60-minute gap after each appointment, called ‘fallow time’. Fallow time is a set period where the surgery must remain empty before the next patient can be seen.

Totally stupid and not based on any science. Why can’t they just wipe everything down, like private dentists?

Because no doubt the NHS will "compensate them" for the lost time so it's free cash for doing nowt

One hour gaps between patients is ludicrous.

The email from my dentist (a private practice, no NHS dentists in this area🙄), when they knew they could reopen, stated:-

All charges remain the same since we have always protected our clients by using PPE, sterilising equipment and wiping down all surfaces between clients.

The only changes you will notice are that temperature checks will be carried out before you enter the waiting area and the waiting area will be limited to 3 persons to allow for social distancing. You will also be required to wear a face mask until you enter the treatment room. Please note that if you arrive too early for your appointment you may be required to wait outside”

We visited for our regular checks a week after reopening and everything ran as smoothly as it had always done. My appointment is usually immediately after my wife’s and I’ve always had to wait for the room to be prepared before being called in.

My local Private dentist Hellesdon Dental Care are blatantly capitalizing out of this.

During the height of lockdown I thought when this was all over I would get back to them.

They charged my niece £40.00 PPE charge for a apron and shoe coverings for use passing through the reception and into the chair.

They say they have increased the hygienist appointments to £85 for a 15 minute appointment due to them having to buy a new ventilation extractor.

I have over £500,000 of equipment at my factory and can not charge any where near £85 per hour let alone the £200 plus per hour they are charging.

Surely it should be business as usual for dentists? Normal procedures etc.?

I guess it's about aerosol generating procedures (AGPs). The presence or otherwise of these has governed, rightly or wrongly, what we have been able to do in surgery over the last 6 months. At the start, any tool cutting or burring tissue was deemed an AGP. Full and expensive PPE.

The definition gradually slackened so that now, it's just general anaesthetics and procedures to the airways. 

If an AGP was performed in a laminar airflow theatre (v rapid air change) there was a 12minute period when no door could be opened. So if an AGP was done in a normal room, with slow air change, that time is considerably higher.

But like anything we have been told to do in the last 6 months, if you stop and analyse things, the logic eventually breaks down. 

We have the same issue with getting x-rays. They 'need' 15 mins to clean the room after a patient has been in. We said we could do it in 15 seconds but that doesn't suit the jobsworths who want to feel important and hinder our work. A power thing probably that only serves to hinder patients. The NHS 'support' services have become "can't -do" and the managers let then get away with it.

My frustrations at all this are unmeasurable and I have given serious thought to getting out but I'm unfortunately not trained for anything else.

Told my daughter pathology might be good - the patients never complain

I don't see that as having any sensible positive outcome.

 

1) He has a mild infection, it adds to his PoV that it's nothing to care about. His supporters feel vindicated that there should be no restrictions, no need for masks etc.

2) He has a serious infection but not ICU-level of treatment. Similar to above but perhaps to a lesser extent. Also he may get some sympathy for being ill (I did state SOME and MAY GET).

3) He gets life-threatening level of infection, then the bit about sympathy comes into play along with general  good nature / etiquette of not speaking badly of those who are seriously ill. His supporters who believe it's not a real threat will simply say it's "fake news" and he's not really that ill. 

4) It proves fatal for him. His supporters see him as hero who did no wrong in his term of office.
