I've just watched the ITV UK news and I just don't get how people are really ignoring the isolation idea. People are in markets, at beaches climbing Snowdon for fucks sake!
Just STOP , stay at home, don't go out at all. It's horrible, its boring, its frightening but its life saving. I'm on day 9 in Spain and they've just announced another 15 days taking it to 12 April. We cant go out at all. Thats at all. Just food or drugs, then only 1 at a time. No exercise no ' fresh air ' ..police and army on the street...Just grow up?

There's no need for bad language! Have a rant if you like but offensive language isn't necessary.

Yes some people are just plain stupid, it can't be helped I'm afraid.

OP, you are preaching largely to the converted. On other threads we have gone over and over this and related subjects.

The Mail are reporting that an 18 year old person has died. How desperately sad for the person and their family. This brings the age range of deaths from 18 - 102. I can only think/hope that this will bring it home to people that we are all affected.

Good luck OP.
I don’t get it either

Some of us are still having to go to work - I do 2 jobs, one as a Warden of a sheltered housing scheme (I am in an office on my own and am not visiting the residents now) and the other is delivering meals to a Special Needs school, which is still open. I'd love to not go to either at the moment.

This OP post is so full of hate! There is no need to cast blame on your fellow humans.

The holier than thou approach is unhelpful.

It actually sounds like you are crumbling already under the strain of self isolating. Take care!

Whom are you addressing, OP?

Not Gransnetters in the main so you may be wasting your time.

Everyone needs to vent at times, Mrst1405. Swearing is part of venting for some of us.

I can't understand these people either. What are they trying to prove or do they just think they're invincible?

I know most of us will catch it at some point but I'd rather we didn't all catch it at the same time so the NHS has a chance of saving as many as possible.
