Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I haven't been outside our estate gates for a month. Sounds like Alcatraz for the rich. On a more serious note. Will they be banning the use of air conditioner units that blow air directly out into the street without going through a HEPA type filter? I'm thinking about Legionnaires' disease where a...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Morning China. Yes, I think you are right about dogs and cats being immune but my point (Badly made) is that they have to be taken out to empty them. That isn't isolation! I assume if you have to quarantine yourself then you'll have to make other arrangements for your dog, or train it to go to the ...

What happens if you have a job with no sick pay? Do Zero Hours contracts pay for self isolation? I doubt it.... Hancock In the House yesterday was about as useful as a chocolate teapot. How do you 'isolate' a dog? I suppose that if you have no sick pay then you go without! Isolation still has to be...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Schools here have not yet reopened after the New Year holiday. Self quarantine is for the good of the community, and I don't think there is another country in the world that could do it better than China. Anybody who behaved unreasonably would soon be brought into line by others in the community. Pe...

Latest figures on Chinese mainland at midnight 24th February: 77658 conformed cases, 2663 deaths, 27323 recovered. That leaves 47672 active infections.

Re: Homing Frogs

I never did get my homing frogs. One night, when the conditions were just right, I was going to go out and collect some baby toads, until my wife warned me that the toads around here had poisonous skin. I don't know if that is right but it put me off collecting them for my garden pond. My koi carp ...

China, if you carry a smartphone perhaps you should photograph your passport etc on it then you'll always be able to show it. Thanks.
