      Seems to be mostly bad news from the U.S. and England these days unfortunately. Canada and Australia seem to be doing okay overall from what I can tell with a couple of particularly bad areas in each. If anyone had been well prepared they would at least have had 100% testing early on for all nursing homes and their employees.

      Had trouble getting flour here and had to get a much bigger bag than normal.

              Hyo-Jick Choi, a biomedical engineer and professor at the University of Alberta in Canada, says he has a potential solution: A mask that can kill harmful pathogens, rather than just block them. The secret ingredient is table salt.

              Viruses and other pathogens travel either through the air; in droplets such as saliva or phlegm from coughing, sneezing, speaking, or breathing; or on surfaces.

              "The coronavirus-carrying droplets, expelled from coughing, sneezing, speaking or breathing, can stay on the surface of the masks," Choi told Business Insider. "The biggest technical challenge of the current surgical mask and n95 respirator is that they cannot kill the virus sitting on their surface, which increases the chance of the contact transmission."

              But when a virus-carrying droplet encounters a mask coated in Choi's salt solution, he says, it begins to absorb the salt. Then once the liquid evaporates, all that remains is the virus and the crystallized salt ó which slices through the virus, neutralizing it.

                            So Boris is expected to ease lockdown measures on sunday, he is predicted to follow what Wales are now doing with the re-opening of garden centres and recycling centres and unlimited outdoor exercise periods.
