    No worries, Gaz. Del and I have always been carers/the caring type, so we always look after people we care about. Grant knows the score, and should he ever need to give up his home, and is out of other options, bar being put in an old folks home, he'd be very well looked after here

    I'm not sure it was only discharge to care homes which have been a problem. Now we know that men over 70 are perhaps the most vulnerable. I think there have been cases where an elderly couple had problems - let's say the woman had surgery at the beginning of the year - before the corona thing really became apparent. Then had some form of rehabilitation after that, but picked up the virus. Then, either by being sent home for a while, or by a visit from relatives, passed it on to her husband who was living at home, and still fairly capable. The final outcome is that the husband then dies - not expectedly a few weeks later, and then the wonderful care services which we have in this country then want to put the woman in a home, as it's now not obvious that she can live by herself in her own home. The man's death is just "written" off as collateral damage, as he was obviously too old anyway, and had non life threatening mobility problems.

    I think there may be quite a number of cases like this, and they do cause problems for families, and obviously considerable distress.

    There hasn't been enough attention or thought to many of the problems which have arisen due to this virus, though in fairness it has been rather a tough one to handle. Perhaps if we collectively had the knowledge we have now, things would have been done differently - though perhaps not by the people currently in government, some of whom could probably not run a booze up in a brewery.

    Wow! A masterly bit of deduction from the W.H.O. Apparently Covid-19 may be transmitted by airborne particles.

    And, they've only had to spend countless millions and drag it out for seven months to draw this conclusion of the bleedin' obvious (It's only a 'maybe' though) .

    Beggars belief. Obvious to anyone with some brain cells. When this first started and the advice was to "wash your Hands", I was screaming "no". You don't just pick it up from surfaces but it is in the air, so why were we told not to wear masks ?

    Where does this leave plane travel now ? How can you sit on a plane, breathing in the recycled air which has passed through 400 other passengers lungs for hours and not catch anything ?

    With you on the air travel concerns - just about every time that I have flown I seem to spend the first few days of the holiday feeling shit/having a cold.

    My wife and I may consider an autumn holiday, depending on the virus situation, but this summer is definitely out of the running.

    If we're going to see a Coronavirus infection surge following the 'Super Saturday' pub free-for-all the weekend before last, it will be making itself known about now. Hopefully we won't see one, but it's a distinct possibility.
