He invented hay fever.

Or possibly the pollen count.

One or the other.

boris and hancock can join a virtual cabinet meeting, but can't take part in the daily press briefing using digital means.

There are those who would say they're running away from public scrutiny like a pair of cowards.

And boris compares himself to Sir Winston.

Royal Mail - useless
at 13:22 26 Mar 2020

Our mail was on Keepsafe while we were on holiday. Should have been with us by Monday.

I rang on Tuesday, and got told they'd raise a query with the local delivery office.

Nothing happened, so I rang again today.

I gave the helpful lady the various reference numbers and she told me the delivery office said there wasn't any mail to deliver!

I pointed out this was inherently improbable over a period of five weeks.

She then managed to get hold of the delivery office manager who said he'd found the mail, the person who'd answered the call centre's query 'didn't know how to respond to it properly (in other words, he/she couldn't be arsed to process it properly).

They've promised it'll be delivered today if he can get somebody, if not it'll be tomorrow.

I'm sure the coronavirus is causing them many problems, but isn't an excuse for not doing your job properly.

And The Royal Mail is run by a Highly Efficient German.

This is interesting stuff about the coronavirus, the number of deaths
at 23:34 25 Mar 2020

And likely reasons for variations between countries (Wuhan province - a breakdown of the healthcare system, Italy - a high number of people over 65)

https://www.livescience.com/is-coronavirus-deadly.html

Comparisons with seasonal flu are difficult because of the large body of data built up over a number of years for seasonal flu, and (relatively speaking) virtually no data for coronavirus. Also seasonal flus aren't pandemics; the last flu pandemic was swine flu in 2009. That killed between (roughly) 150,00 and 575,000 worldwide.

Simple solution to the London travel problems
at 14:36 25 Mar 2020

Lots of 'essential' workers and construction workers filling up the underground.

Lots of empty hotel rooms.

Large employers could easily strike deals with Premier Inn/Travelodge etc to fill those rooms with people who'd otherwise be on the tube.

Sorted.
