Wishing you well Finbar, I hope you don't get too much company on this thread.
Thanks Hood,Wishing you well Finbar, I hope you don't get too much company on this thread.
Your sister and BiL will know what's best and hopefully in the time both hav remaining to recover they will come on leaps and bounds.Your first post was eight days ago so hopefully you are over the peak and on the road to recovery. Both my sister and brother in law have had the virus, my sister was the second to catch it. They both work within the NHS but not together and are being chased to return to work although my sister is still signed off (two weeks) and still feeling like she has been run down by a bus.
Thanks for updates Fin.I'm not sure of other areas but by the volume of traffic passing me, ( 6am this morning ), many have not got the message or don't care enough.
Hi thanks for the best wishes Flint.Thanks for updates Fin.
The list of who are considered “essential workers” is quite long. Besides NHS and other emergency services includes farmers, bank branch staff, food shop workers, post office workers, delivery service drivers, Amazon fulfilment centre workers, etc., etc., etc. Don’t forget truck drivers delivering food and medicines to shops and hospitals also have to get from home to truck depot. too.
Even teachers - which surprises many. Who thought, mistakenly, that schools were closed. Primary schools in particular, where the kids are too young to be left Home Alone, are very much still open, to provide daytime child care and education to the kids of people in the essential categories. And will remain so throughout the Easter period. My SWMBO amongst them.
So the traffic you have observed are 99% likely to be people in those essential categories trying to get to work “as normal”. Believe me - they DO care! And are very concerned to be putting themselves in the line of fire to catch a dose of virus every time they go to work.
