Also, what’s with meat processing industry? CV outbreaks in the past few days at factories in Cleckheaton, Anglesey and a big one in Germany, which seems to be due to poor living conditions of their immigrant workers. Is this the same at UK facilities? Could these companies pass the virus into our food supply?

IIRC a virus works by tricking the cells in the host body into producing more of the virus instead of what the cell should produce, so in food the cells themselves are dead and just act as fuel for the thing (us) that eats the food. Different to say bacteria or fungus that could also consume the food and so reproduce.  That way, it's only just down to any direct contamination that's put into /onto the food such as from a cough. So it may last in the refrigerator but as @C8RKH sates, cooking will destroy it, the virus cannot exist for long at cooking temperatures, let alone what stomach acid would do to it.

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!

If in doubt, an extra helping of surplus alcohol, in a large quantity, with every meal, would help to provide a sanitising effect on the Covid bug and ensure that you remained healthy.

Well of course, not all of you. Your mouth, oesophagus, stomach, liver and kidneys may be harmed but at least you won't be a Corona Victim. :)

Seems to me that every five minutes there’s another so-called expert that we’ve never heard of, from some piss-pot university we‘ve never heard of, gobbing off about where the government got it wrong, and what the rest of us mere mortals should be doing with our lives, which generally contradicts the previous expert.

As a result, I’ve taken the decision to ignore the twats, and stick with @C8RKH’s advice because despite the fact that he apparently lives north of the Arctic circle and is therefore clearly a few apples short of an orchard, I sincerely believe he’s the world authority in the specialist subject of pissing it up.

@Chillidoggy, most people get tested for their blood type:A; B; AB; O etc.

I get tested for variety: Merlot; Pinot Noir; Syrah; Grenache etc.

Never had a day off work sick in 38 years of paying NICs. If it ain't broke...

Thanks, mate.

It’s comforting to know your dogged diligence in paying NI contributions is helping to support ageing old retirees like me. The free prescriptions I’m getting now are saving me a fortune, and those 910 engine rebuilds aren’t cheap, you know.

You'll be fine @Chillidoggy as I've got another 15 years of contributions to go...

However, thanks to the English tax payer subsidies I get free eye tests, free prescriptions, free personal care, etc...

As of today yes, but in 5 years time you’ll still have another 15 years to go :P

However, to give you something to look forward to, I can confirm that life is good on the back of defined benefit pensions aided by the paltry state bit :thumbsup:

An estimated 500,000 flock to the beach at Bournemouth 😮

Time to end the furlough scheme, if people are happy to put themselves at risk crowding on to a beach then they should be happy to go back to work and the teachers & kids go back to school. :wallbash:
 

Just taking the piss with the scheme now, should have nay been extended on a rolling week basis

Yup. No social distancing. Litter and piss everywhere. Drunken louts. Fights breaking out. Fcuking tossers everywhere. Just get the buggers back to work and stop handing out free tax payers money....

So Victoria, where I live, has had 77 new cases in a week since relaxing restrictions.

 So they tightened things up again as you would expect to stop it.

But the best part? The stupid, idiotic, brain dead, pathetic halfwits that call themselves humans have panic bought the shops empty again.

 The world contains a lot of morons.

If I was Bournemouth council, I would have been very tempted to leave the 22 tonnes of rubbish on the beach, for a week or two, rather than immediately tidying it up....

ID everyone on the beach using ANPR cameras and all the pictures and dump the rubbish in their gardens.
