Sickly sweet stories about the NHS or Captain Tom is the complete opposite to the US where coronavirus is politically polarising and being used by the Democratic media to try and inflict as much damage on the Republicans and Trump as possible.
 

Neither is helpful. This should be a bipartisan issue.

Poor effort. 0/10

Looks like the promise of 100,000 tests per day by the end of the month is unachievable.

Attention grabbing headline rather than realistic target.

Really? Hard to believe after everything else that they managed to get wrong...

Is wee Jeane actually doing anything about testing or is she clueless and just leaving up to big nasty Westminster? Could have been the perfect time to show some leadership and take control of something that is actually her responsibility.

A small thing, perhaps, but wise to keep in mind that it's not always best to read too much into changes being made in other countries, as they may not always be as reported in the UK and they will not be dealing with the same circumstances.

For example, some will see the report that is on the Guardian website right now saying that South Korea is going to 'ease its lockdown' and read something into that about what may or may not happen where you are.

But South Korea does not have a 'lockdown'. People in Korea are out and about. My mate was texting me from a pub in Itaewon earlier this evening. Another friend of mine was out in Suwon last night. There are restrictions in place in Korea, but most people are still going to work and life is more or less continuing. For the Guardian to report that they are 'easing a lockdown' is misleading.

Perhaps a reminder not to take media reports on other countries at face value. There's a lot of confusion and misinformation doing the rounds.

They are deluded if they believe they are in control of all this.

Deluded.

They've completely fcuked this up from day one, totally unready for it and they haven't a clue what to do next.

 

If you'd to make a worldwide incompetence table we'd probably  be second behind the yanks.

But th8e can still carry it and infect others even more so if the schools go back. It's not the direct risk to them that is the issue.

Just on the schools thing in england they dont finish for summer until the last week of July. I would expect they will go back even if it is only for 6 weeks of the summer term.
Not trying to act the c**t here in any way but the only silver lining in this is that it isn't killing children apart from those with serious underlying issues. It doesn't seem to have affected them anywhere near as much as adults/the elderly.

Really...as the president addresses the nation nightly praising demonstrators protesting against their state governors lockdown. The same president who says he will (reluctantly but legally with no alternative) let the governor's decide when lockdown can end !!!

Yep. And that's just in classrooms - not to mention the corridors between classes, dining halls, gym halls, playgrounds, dropoffs / pickups before / after school, even the logistics of getting them onto buses.

I can't see schools reopening in anything like a "normal" form when Social Distancing is still a thing. The two are massively incompatible.

We have been lucky that the our grandkids are getting into nursery 2 days a week.

There have been quite a few conspiracy theories surrounding Covid 19, including it being a Chinese bioweapon, and/or 5G being to blame. Maybe we should look closer to home. The main website is effectively a moment frozen in time, and guess what the video is playing? St. Mirren scoring against Hearts. Coincidence?

You could be onto something, there’s no booing and saints scored a goal. It looks like some sort of setup.

Loads of folk buzzing around Glasgow's leafy West End recently on them.

Saw folk kneeling and praying outside a church on the pavement and road at Hyndland Street this afternoon. Literally on their knees to each other. Absolute moon-units

I was delivering in G12 on thursday and saw a bell end busking outside the CO-OP on Great Western Road.
