    There is a lot of knowledge amongst us, I exclude myself.

    The COVID 19 is dominating the news:

    How worried should we be?

    Will this be Spanish flu proportions or just another contained outbreak as SARS and MERS were?

    Oh – and when will we start to see ‘Just in time’ manufacturing suffer?

    i order some ready meals from wiltshire farm foods for the occasions when i cant stand and cook etc.

    usually order once a month and get about 10 meals and some desserts as its difficult getting small desserts for one. and they do the retro stuff crumbles and custard and the like.

    anyway went on to order today and they are restricting it to existing customers only so i guess theyve been innundated by people looking for a way around the problems with supermarkets etc.

    Brydo,

    i’m not sure 135000 employees and their families of McDonalds would agree.

    Lets hope food supplies don’t run out or you might be wishing they were still open.

    Apparently he was filling his trolley up to the top with Lobster, and Crabs, and shrimp, emptying the shelves as he went along –

    shellfish bastard!

    Gillan I think they are still getting paid, but on the bright side millions of people will not be eating the sh%£# they produce.

    Gillan, I believe as long as they have been paid through the company’s PAYE system, staff will get 80% pay from HMG, and there may be a benefit that some of their customers might have to learn to cook!

    Ah, crossed with your comment, Brydo… Personally I don’t mind a big Mac on occasion although I prefer a BK whopper. When I say on occasion I mean about once a year!

    my father had the same attitude,complete snobbery, towards McDonalds until he was in Hong Kong and not getting on with the local food had to have McDonalds having never had one before.

    He is in his 70’s and his brother 10 years older. He doesn’t slag them anymore!

    We have McDonalds as an occasional take away treat. I find it tasty and economical although we have it so infrequently as the nearest McDonalds is in the next town.

    Hi all.

    I have found this Coronavirus map, if you zoom in on the different places in China, you can see how few cases there were outside of Hubei, and how most are no longer active. It offers a ray of light that the spread can be contained.

    I’m not saying people can’t or don’t like them mike I’m just saying the stuff is crap and very unhealthy. I love a fry up but its not good for me, but I can buy free range eggs, quality low fat sausages, rindless bacon etc to make it more healthy. There is nothing you can do with a MacDonald’s to make it more healthy, except maybe throw it in the bin.

    The Chinese government is not renowned for telling the truth. Voices from inside China tell a very different tale.

    perhaps, maybe – but at least they are back on the streets after three months.

    Coronavirus: South Korea reports lowest number of new cases in four weeks

    South Korea has reported the lowest number of new coronavirus cases since infection rates peaked four weeks ago, fuelling hope Asia’s worst outbreak outside China may be abating.

    The country recorded 64 new cases of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours, taking the total to 8,961 with 111 deaths.

    But health officials warn against complacency, saying the country still faces a long war against the infection.

    Europe is currently at the centre of the pandemic.

    Italy reported 651 new deaths on Sunday, bringing the total there to 5,476, while Spain added another 462 deaths in the past 24 hours for a total of 2,182.

    I loved the McNuggets when they first came out.  But after the first 3 months or so the quality of the chicken dropped so I stopped buying them.

    I’m really a Burger King gal.  🙂

    The amount of cars queuing up at Macky’ds this afternoon, getting in before they lock the doors, was unbelievable.

    No way would I be going out until the all clear, i wonder if take away delivery will all stop? That will leave a hell of a lot of full and part time self employed out of work.

    This afternoon we got a second food parcel from Nandos my eldest grandkid is a manager and all food has to go, they’ve given away as much as local charities can handle and there is still loads left. This closure was last minute as they only had a delivery yesterday so the place was fully stocked.
    BTW I hate Nandos but my wife and daughter who’s still at home like it. lol

    18 months ago I spent 7 days days in hospital, I had an unknown viral infection that they never found out what it actually was, I was in isolation for a week,

    At the same time, my son in the next ward for 10 days, unknown viral infection so he was also in isolation for the 10 days, he had it worse than I did & twice we nearly lost him. Both of us pumped upto the hilt with broad spectrum antibiotics because they didn’t have a clue what they were treating

    We both had all the symptoms of the now known covid-19.

    Now my grandson who at the time was 8mth old made the 3rd generation to be admitted to hospital that same week, he was there 5 days with a severe chest infection & breathing difficulties.

    Our symptoms back then were the same as covid-19 is now,
    It’s the twilight zone & X-Files all at once.

    Just a bit of a heads up – I’m supposed to go ordering my new car this weekend but I’ve received several emails from different garage groups (including the one I’m supposed to be ordering from) stating that they are closing down for the foreseeable future.
    I’m in no doubt that others will quickly follow so where does Motability stand on this?
    Bang goes the £500 AP discount I’d negotiated as well.
