Well yeah. I mean, I never believed that was going to happen anyway. The app I mean. I imagined that would be a winter thing, despite what they said.

But with the app not ready, should we just wait for it? Genuine question, not being an arsehole! I can't remember what the status of it is, since I'd already psychologically discounted anyway.

It's just that comparing to other countries, who also don't have effective apps, they waited until new infections were in the low hundreds before opening up, and daily mortalities were in the two digits. The way the numbers are being reported, I would have expected Scotland and Wales to lift restrictions first, instead of the other way around.

They're not exactly lightning fast and decisive either. That chicken plant that had a sudden burst of infections the other day, I would have expected an immediate local lockdown, and an army of test track and tracers there within hours. But all we've got from the news about it is "Meh, it's a thing..."

Well, sadly Sturgeon seems to have a separate agenda and sources close to her have intimated that she wants to use this crisis to be able to get a border between us. I don't know how much of that is true or just hyperbole, but definitely Scottish stats recently are very good and it seems to me to be difficult to make a case to continuing to stay indoors. Scottish people can't be very happy with Sturgeon surely at the moment, if it's true she's trying to score political points with this.

I'm not saying I disagree that the app should have been ready, or the Tories have been lacking in many ways. It's just that I can't see how much further into lockdown people could be expected to reasonably go. Three months is a very long time. Many people I know who are still at risk (I won't tell you where I work but suffice to say I'm a local council worker) are willing to take the risk to come out and live again. And I get that. I think as long as people are respectful and responsible, I think we'll be OK.

Agree with all this.

A new risk has been talked about on the news tonight, and its about if you catch Covid 19 and end up in ICU in hospital on oxygen or ventilator, and assuming you survive, you may have damaged your lungs for life with scar tissue build up, seems around 30% of survivors are getting that.

Showed you a couple of UK survivors who gasp for breath if they do anything strenuous. Whereas before catching covid 19, they were fine. Doctors said they may improve, but possibly not, just depends on the lungs on how they heal over time.

To be fair, that's not new.

We've known that for a while now...

So yesterday, the Govt says that theatres will be allowed to reopen, but live performances are forbidden...

It’s like Captain Kirk trying to blow up an alien computer...

Tell me about it. We've been closed since the lockdown, furlough scheme is starting to taper off and from November it stops - some venues will not be re-opening which is sad - hopefully the one I work for will survive but I feel mass redundancies first.

Gov needs to step in sharpish!

It's grim for us theatre types!

I genuinely feel for people under threat. There's going to be some serious questions asked of governments around the world, not least of all ours, come August when reality hits.

I was listening to a neighbour saying to another one "ooh we could do with a furlough every year"! Hmm, lets see if you feel this way in a month or two when there's no job to return to. No schadenfreude here - I genuinely hope it doesn't come to that, but it's not looking good. This easing of the lockdown isn't exactly convincing. There's no way I'm going shopping on the high street right now. Not because of the virus, I couldn't give a monkeys about that. No it's because of the unique Russian style shopping experience you have to endure. Stand here, go that way, wait, queue here. Wait. Follow the lines...

Nuts to that. I think many feel the same way too.

You just need to pick the time of day and day of week. I queued for three weeks when this thing started, but ever since then, I've been straight in and out of shops, got what I needed, and the only problem was dodging those idiots who think 2 metres is the same as 2 feet.
