People ignoring the advice. in Caravanning and Coronavirus (Covid 19) Posted 3 hours ago 1 hour ago, ericfield said: It would be interesting to know how Germany ‘handled’ the elderly and vulnerable from the outset. Was there a mindset if not edict to protect them as a priority? I understand that 80% of those tested positive in Germany are under 60. My wife and I are over 70, as are many of our neighbours, and we are all going about out daily business much the same as before the virus except that we take care not to get too close to others including other members of the family, wash our hands even more often than usual and we wear masks when we go into supermarkets. There has not been any directive for us to do any more. 15 minutes ago, logiclee said: The UK has a road network that requires a lot of daily management. Daily congestion and RTA's. The non-essential travel is not only to cut down the risk of virus transfer but to reduce the burden on the Emergency Services, Breakdown Services and local authorities. I don't know what the picture is like in the UK at the moment but here in Germany there are a lot more people taking their daily exercise by riding a bicycle. Everybody knows that the risk of injury in an accident is far greater on a bicycle than in a car. In fact, only this afternoon, while driving home, I saw a cyclist doing a somersault over the handlebars and hurting himself quite badly.
