Typical. Londoners shoot off to their second home in the country against all government instructions leaving elderly parents behind. Now down with Covid19 adding to the Aberdeenshire NHS problems.

How many more threads on PC and Covid 19?

Calendargirl Wed 25-Mar-20 14:46:25

Already two other threads about this.

Two threads on this? I can see three hmm

According to a GNetter who lives near to Balmoral, he and Camilla were already living there - they regard it as their main home - when the virus struck, so they haven't decamped at all, they are staying put where they are.

Typical media hype to make assumptions and cause disbontent.

Dodgy arithmetic, *Bathsheba. This thread plus two others equals three.

Just to throw a spanner n the works, Oxford University has stated today, that they have been working from a different model of how the virus spreads. They are saying the virus probably entered the U.K. mid January, and has by now infected half the population, unbeknownst to us. Interesting reading. Not sure if I believe it though.

Typical. Get the wrong end of the stick and prepare to beat all and sundry about the head with it.
Never let the facts get in the way of a good rant?

Eh?? That's what I said. Three threads. No dodgy arithmetic here, thank you very much hmm

Ah, apologies. I see Calendargirl's post said 'two other threads' - hadn't spotted the word 'other'!

I read that too endlesstrife
It is a theory put forward by Sunetra Gupta at Oxford University.
If true then half of us could already acquired immunity.

It’s controversial of course but certainly encouraging if true.

I'd like to know if it arrived before mid-January.
