Related to that the anti-viral drugs work being done at Imperial is nearly finished and trials to begin shortly. This is a suppressant drug (much like AIDS drugs are) not a vaccine.
    Thats all good news

    I now have washing up liquid. This makes me far happier than it should.

    Have you a link for the test kits bit? Last I heard they'd ordered 100,000 from PRC

    Loads out clapping on our (very middle class) estate - didn't expect it. Felt like quite a grinch sitting here working.

    Plenty here too, with cheering thrown in for good measure by some.

    Sadly not, this is news from somebody I know and trust as he's in the company that's got a contract (one of a number of).

    There's two tests, an antibody test as well as a virus test and apparently there are kits to do both.

    At the risk of being jingoistic the U.K. NI and Eire are leading the world on this.

    We went out and clapped and there was plenty around us.
    Nothing to see here...... can't offend sensitive souls.

    Colleague of mine did some modelling on data & current trends. Italy look like they have got a handle on it, the US looks pretty terrifying:

    The US is going to be absolute carnage I'm afraid.

    It is a bit frustrating that we have to wait. I checked my HMRC account last night and they have everything back to 2014, right there. You can see what I filed, just pay me on that basis and I am happy.
    I'm lucky in that my girlfriend still has her job, and, even if the charity she works for has to furlough her, the combination of 80% of her wage plus our savings should cover our bills for most of the rest of the year. But it is a weird one. I've been registered self-employed since 2011, despite being on PAYE contracts most of that time, because I've always done freelance work here and there. So in terms of paperwork, I'm fine - I can show everything I've earned for the last decade.

    The problem is that my freelancing was never more than 10-15% of my income, really... until the 19-20 tax year, where it's most of it, and it's most of it for the foreseeable. I'll get in touch with HMRC when the new portal goes up, but it's a weird way of defining who gets what. I know a lot of people who jump from PAYE contract to PAYE contract, too, where they're effectively self-employed, they're just put through payroll to make payments easier for the client. What happens to them? Hoping it's clarified further.

    Favourite part of Donalds broadcast tonight.

    It is quite possible that the spread throughout the US will be slower than Europe, and hopefully more manageable (less unmanageable).

    NYC is very large, cosmopolitan, and densely populated, but much of the southern part of the country is totally different. Small towns are exactly that - small. Also relatively isolated - so whereas the virus will eventually reach everywhere, it may take longer to do so. Even the big cities in the south are not densely populated at all - San Antonio has 2 million people but is the same size as the M25, so social distancing has a head start. There are few tower blocks and most homes are single occupier - hardly any semi-detached or terraced houses.

    And there is still the hope that warmer weather does act as a deterrent. Temperature today low 30s.

    Maybe I sound over optimistic. Not stupid enough to suggest we are safe, just hoping we don't get hit as hard as some.

    Been put on a rota with all the other managers now so I’m not back until Monday afternoon and then finish Wednesday afternoon. Felt weird yesterday coming home and being teacher for a few hours, It’s really hard to motivate Cass when she’s at home, she’s at the age where her mates are far more important. Got a feeling today will be more of the same!

    Credit to people though, I decided to walk home yesterday as I left at 9:30 and it’s a nice five mile trip around the edge of the green belt. I did see a few people out and about jogging, walking their dogs etc, and everybody was making conscious efforts to stay two metres apart. Couples walked in single file to pass, some crossed over to keep the spacing. Seemed like a normal day in my world!
