    Over 40% of all coronaviris cases are now in London should movement in and out of the capital be severely restricted?

    The tubes were packed mainly because they have reduced the number of trains?
    The government will act if these latest measures to pay wages for those staying home before Further locking London down.
    The problem with putting all of London under quarantine is the practicality of such a large operation feeding and getting medication to people and dealing with mental and physical health of those without the virus.
    what we do need is visible action taken against those who are to stubborn or stupid to stay indoors other then to exercise etc.

    Definitely, since schools were closed the rich selfish oaf Londoners have inundated us, run off to their 2nd homes & of course they’re not self isolating so all our vulnerable people are especially at risk here due to them.

    Just seen the 10 AM news and government saying if its safe to work on building site then its OK to go to work.

    So the message behind that is if you think its safe to go to the park or Snowdonia then that’s OK. Keep calm and carry on. 😊

    What a bunch of morons.

     

    The question they have to ask is not “is there enough ventilators” but “is there enough coffins”.

    Guys and girls, a number of our posters are from the London area as are some of the one thousand ‘guests’ we have visiting the forum on a daily basis. Let’s not insult people on a regional basis, because most people (whatever area) are in the same boat as us. Living in London must be scary enough at the moment, so let’s hope that further defensive measures will be taken by the government very soon in order to offer more protection to Londoners.

    Pops you misinterpret my intention here, if an area is a hot spot it is for the benefit of both those in and outside the hot spot to know about it.

    If i were in a hotspot i would be saying the exact same thing.

    Those on the forum from London will hopefully be looking after themselves and following the government guidlines of self isolating. These are serious times but its clear, from online photos, that many in London, and to be fair elsewhere, are not following the guidlines.

    So no matter where you are look after yourself and FOLLOW THE GUIDLINES.

    It’s too late as there is person to person transfer all over the UK and as testing is only happening sporadically tracking individual cases and who they have been in contact with is now all but abandoned.

    The only solution is to ‘squash the sombrero’ as the PM said (oh dear) to keep the casualties down.

    This came from the North East PHE (Public Health England) Director, an area that has not been hit too badly so far:

    ‘We are approaching a critical phase and make no mistake, the North East cannot avoid the very real consequences of this disease. We need to protect ourselves, our families, our key workers and every community across the North East. To do so we must act now. Every single one of us in our region must take responsibility’.

    I understand where you’re coming from Brydo and your point is valid. I was referring specifically to how we reply to such a question. Cheers.

    Being a thick Londoner (no offence taken ) I’ve not witnessed any other thickos purposely not following the guidance since the lockdown other then on the tubes, but the mayor of London cut trains at peak times and still expected all the front line staff to get to work, remember the tube is the best way to get around London.

    I did see Ben neves and snowden packed over the weekend I doubt many were thick Londoners.
    Morons are everywhere sad to say even disabled folk going out in the sun  in their cars.

    London was bound to be hit hard because London hospitals were the first to take cases from all over the south.
    plus the population in London is massive, with two of the biggest airports.

    My thoughts with the tube is construction workers are using it early morning this is the same time key workers are starting work, so stopping all construction sites in London for the next month or longer this could help the spread of the virus .

    They have kept building sites open as they haven’t figured out a way of making sure self employed tradesmen get enough money to live on, but have told most of the builders yards to close so they can’t order materials?
    So these workers are entitled to use the tubes still and there are thousands of them in and around London.
    Once they figure that out they will close sites

    Still only 37 cases of the virus out of 275,000 in my borough of London.

    who watched BBC 1 tonight the clap to support the NHS and front line workers. A fair few people outside and stood too close to neighbours.

    50% of Tube staff are either sick or self-isolating.  No choice but to cut services.

    @pillboy which has caused the crowding on the tubes.

    Bri Yes the constant bad news is causing lots of anxiety, I have 12 weeks of having to stay indoors which brings home how serious things are and will be for some time.

    Do you try anything to distract her if she has a smartphone there’s an ap called headspace which really helps just think about here and now.
