It’s just another paper exercise!! Sorry, I’ll get my coat…
Howzabout I call it The Origami Mania Thread, it’ll last & last, long after this corona pop thing.
If you go into isolation to avoid getting it you should ready to do it for a year, until a vaccine may be available.
True isolation & carrying on a normal life is impossible, thats not what I’m doing if you re-read my post, I’m just limiting my social contacts & following what is advised by the government experts & aligned to the age & health profiles of my household.
Truth be told no one knows how this is gonna work out, is the UK Gov advice the right path, why is it different compared to other countries, when will we get a vaccine, will the antibody solution be a possible fast track holding solution, will herd immunity come into play or will it simply not work as looks to be the case in Italy.
I suspect when this is all over & the data is analysed, there will still be disagreement over what was the best path.
This is really confusing for my voluntary work: the charity is all about breaking social isolation to support the mental health of vulnerable people!
(OK, yes I do know the difference between social isolation, social distancing and shelf isolation (sic) for biosecurity. In fact, on a serious note, telephone and/or other electronic contact between people becomes even more important now to reduce the detrimental mental effects of social isolation).
Also here’s another thread about shelf isolation:
Now that’s what I call shelf isolation!
You crease me up !
OK. We’ve all been expelled from the big brother house and must work from home indefinitely. I see the advice now lists ‘those at increased risk’ and it includes me so will probably just sit it out and hope that my wife - who works in school - and my youngest - still at said school - don’t bring it home!
Good luck and keep safe.
Take care Graeme.
It looks like my daughter has it, dry cough, temperature, feels grotty etc.
Hubby has to isolate at home & wait for developments, ditto the grandson.
Ironically she’s a microbiologist & the product director for a mini DNA analyser that can get results in super quick time, and guess what the whole world wants them in the Sars-Covid research.
Hopefully another good news story in a few days Mike…and goodness knows we need them.
Best wishes to you and yours.
Just realised I don’t have to get up at 6:30 tomorrow morning. A silver lining of sorts.
That’s the good thing about being retired. I’m a “night person” - get up at 10am, bed 2 or 3am. Different from the 6.30 rise time before I retired from Anaesthetics/Intensive Care (to avoid morning rush hour and see patients before my list started).
Haha! Now the name makes sense.
Yup. I’m a retired NHS Consultant. (to our non UK members, that means one of the chiefs!)
Mrs G is an NHS Consultant (AMU). Can’t wait for her to retire. 3 years to go.
Once retired it’s not about what you did but what you do now.
I think what I do now is :
Annoy SWMBO (I love her, really …)
Listen to music
Grandad’s Taxi / Spoil our grandkids.
Gave all my medical books to the Hospital’s Graduate Medical Centre.
Still socialise with some of my old colleagues/friends
