There's a report from China telling of only one new case of the virus in the past five days.   For them, maybe the corner is in sight.   This is what the BBC reported:-

Wuhan has been shut off from the rest of the world since the middle of January. But officials now say anyone who has a "green" code on a widely used smartphone health app will be allowed to leave the city from 8 April.

Earlier, the authorities reported a new case of coronavirus in Wuhan, ending a five-day run of no new cases in the city.

My Mrs went shopping in Sainsburys this morning, (I can't, over 70 and I had a bypass last August), and she managed to get MOST things she needed, including toilet rolls!!! No liquid hand wash though, we'll have to carry on using shower gel.:D

Couldn't get any shower gel for men from Morrisons.  Have enough for the next 2 - 3 weeks, but if still not available will have to raid the caravan.

In what way is shower gel for men or women different?

did anyone see on TV someone invented a gadget to open doors without using your hands, so simple, like an S shape and you  hook your arm in it  to pull the door open. Here's hoping they attach them to public toilet doors.

The Excel compound  in London dockland is being equipped to provide 500 bed capacity for the virus by the Army. 

 

I think  the plan is actually to (possibly) use Excel for OTHER than Coronavirus patients thus freeing up the better equipped hospitals for the inevitable avalanche of Covid patients that’s going to arrive in a short while and will need the infrastructure (like ventilators and ICU beds) 

 

Either way it still  worries me greatly as to what is going to happen in the next 21 days. If Italy and Spain are portents then its gonna get grim, with a capital “G”

 

I am VERY glad I live right on the very edge of town with my own garden so can avoid, as far as is possible, any  potential “plague carriers” Trouble is at some point we are going to have to go shopping in one of the major supermarkets. Got a click and collect booked, did it last night, earliest slot?? Thursday WEEK.  We have enough to see through till then though.

 

Stay safe everyone :)

Terrible stuff happening in Spain according to the BBC, where the Army support squads are finding care homes where the carers have deserted, and occupants dying

I've been trying for a week or more with both Asda & Tesco to get a delivery slot.   Finally got one last night with Asda but it's for the 14th April at 7-9pm.

Don't forget the scrubbing brush with carbolic soap.  LOL!  No such thing as using shampoo.

The Army specialist unit has the expertise to built that type of infrastructure in such a short time it will be better for the virus patient to be confined in just one place.

The Army certainly does have the expertise to set up field hospitals at short notice.

 

But you will THEN need all of the HUGE infrastructure needed for Covid patients in huge numbers.

 

In hospitals Oxygen is “piped” all over the building. That wouldn’t be possible at Excel so each and every bed would need its own Oxygen supply, then there’s the ICU kit AND the need for isolation from other patients etc. 

 

If Excel gets used its not going to be for (serious)  Covid patients

You will be surprise how much equipment the Army have in their store and the MOD might be able to supply the medical staff from the tri-service as well.

From Matt Hancock the health secretary.

"And he says he can announced that a new emergency hospital, NHS Nightingale, is opening at the ExCel centre in London.  He says it will have two wards which each have space for 2,000 patients."
