So I told her to just stay at home for the time being until restrictions are lifted and I will manage her care myself. There are still people that seem to think this situation is not as serious as it is. I have been shopping and to the post office today and made sure I kept as far away as possible from the shop staff. At the p o, I practically threw the money on the counter for the postage,then apologised to the counter clerk saying I hadnít intended to throw it, but was just trying to keep away. She was actually grateful and said better that than come too close. At the shop I handed money over at arms length or placed the money on the counter and stood well back. When I go to mumís tomorrow I have protective gloves but no mask, so will have to use a scarf instead and not make contact with her, although I do need to take her for her daily exercise so she will need to link my arm as she canít walk unaided.
Richard.--Those restrictions.--I think the 3 weeks will soon become 3 months then maybe 6 months or more.

Without a vaccine then with all the hope in the world this virus will run and run if the 70,000,000 population needs to become immune.


The current three weeks will do NOTHING.

I popped out for a loaf of bread while walking the dog earlier, and the amount of people in the local Co-Op handling stuff and putting it back was astounding.

Choosing my loaf from the back of the shelf, I then made a sharp exit........this will become a Darwinian exercise where the people who are best designed to fit a local environment survive.

The amount of stupidity and false bravado being displayed was cringeworthy.

Heh ho

Up to 24 hours on cardboard according to here.

Neeltje van Doremalen, a virologist at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), and her colleagues at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Montana, have done some of the first tests of how long Sars-CoV-2 can last for on different surfaces. Their study, which has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, shows that the virus could survive in droplets for up to three hours after being coughed out into the air. Fine droplets between 1-5 micrometres in size – about 30 times smaller than the width of a human hair – can remain airborne for several hours in still air.
It means that the virus circulating in unfiltered air conditioning systems will only persist for a couple of hours at the most, especially as aerosol droplets tend to settle on surfaces faster in disturbed air.
But the NIH study found that the Sars-CoV-2 virus survives for longer on cardboard – up to 24 hours – and up to 2-3 days on plastic and stainless-steel surfaces. (Learn how to clean your mobile phone properly.)
The findings suggest the virus might last this long on door handles, plastic-coated or laminated worktops and other hard surfaces. The researchers did find, however, that copper surfaces tended to kill the virus in about four hours.
Haven't seen anything to indicate whether it's any different for paper. Some types of paper such as a glossy magazine would be less water-absorptive (and more likely to be coated in a fine layer of plastic) than e.g. the type of paper used for envelopes, so in theory it might last even longer.

As a "high touch" item, any plastic wrapping/bag around a loaf of bread would need to be cleaned before putting it into your breadbin! Thankfully, I make my own bread anyway.
