With social distancing and self isolation only in place to prevent the NHS becoming overwhelmed. How do you feel knowing that you’ll get Covid-19 at some point or may have already had it?

Remember lockdowns and social distancing are about policing when you’ll catch the virus not to stop you getting this virus. How do you feel knowing that you won’t wake up tomorrow, Next week, next month and even next year and the virus won’t be here anymore? Vaccines are a long way from reality and if it’s like viral phenomena treatment will never be effective the only way to recover is our own immune systems fighting the virus off....

It will still be around just like other viruses are, either in its present form or another as it may well mutate as flu does, so when a vaccine is found will it have to be given annually like the flu jab is?

A mild form of it would be preferable to a full blown form, though like flu you can't choose, I don't know how bad Covid-19 is, but I've had a dose of full blown flu and that was bad enough, though with stories about feelings of like you are suffocating is not nice to think of.

Thankfully data shows that the majority of folks who contract it do recover, just hope the vast amount of equipment that's needed can be manufactured in good time, the great number of folks that are being predicted to become infected in the coming weeks may very well need it.

Boris should have fired warning shots over the roof of the Palais de l'Élysée when Macron ordered those two UK bound lorries loaded with PPE and hand sanitiser to be impounded for use by the French instead of the UK NHS, he later relented after pleas by the government and allowed them to leave. Trust the French to try it on with the UK, if they were German lorries and the drivers had shouted 'Geh weg' those French border officials would have ran.

To be honest, if I’d have been the French government I’d have kept the equipment and said screw you or pay for the privilege of having it sent via France. You wanted out the EU your out...

For the virus I doubt they will ever be a true vaccine due to the nature of the illness. Boris Johnson needs to be more truthful with the public in general and also admit he made a massive error waiting so long to lockdown the country instead choosing to look after the billionaire Business men and women Tory donors. The man will have blood on his hands for ignoring all the advice he and his government were being given.

Just back from having a late run around the streets and water park so peaceful but very chilly in that wind.

This is a very informative read about Covid-19 from Snopes.
