    We must thank the staff working in supermarkets having to keep up with demands replenishing shelves.

    Been to Aldi this morning got the shopping that I wanted plenty of fruit & veg tins pasta cereals bread meat yoghurts milk stocked in store,but not much toilet rolls,kitchen paper,liquid soaps,paracetamol,eggs,beer and wine left on shelves,a lot of retired people seemed to be shopping at 8am filling up their trolleys with 3 tills open.Flybe gone bust,John Lewis profits down 23 per cent.This is something that I thought about with nurses in hospitals when sometimes you see them in their scrubs uniform,not really hygienic if their on their way to work or finished their shifts in the supermarket

    So Fly be have now gone under, the company have been struggling for a while now but apparently corona is the straw that broke the airlines back!
    ....It gets worse however, the new Bond film No time to die has been postponed until november due to falling audiences at cinemas

    I have to go to the doctors to pick up a prescription on Friday morning.It was showing the 111 England call centre in Dudley where 150 more staff were needed for the amount of phone calls has gone up a lot since all these cases are rising.They say not to panic but I am petrified they are introducing this breath test when.
    Iím not worried about catching it even though Iím 62 and work in a massive high school BUTthe thought of getting it and THEN being practically dragged away from your family and planted in a strange hospital the other end of the county is real scary !!

    I fear the real Ďfuní may start in 4 to 6 weeks when the epidemic/ deaths kick in - and chaos ensues

    Get some powered milk too.
    I've stockpiled my cupboards, i have enough supplies to last for at least 3 weeks incase of lockdown/ isolation.
    I'm still not too worried but i am prepared. Working for the NHS on the front line i am classed as high risk.
