Covid 19, some fear it others just ignore the dangers, me, I am in the middle, I don't fear it but, I do understand the dangers, I have been working from home for 2 weeks now and I am well so hopefully I don't have C19 as I call it.
But, I do have to eat and I have been to my local Tesco twice and most of the shoppers were just ignoring all the rules 2 meter distance and don't lean into someones face to get a tin of beans. I have started wearing a mask when I go out, it's a carbon filter mask, thick and fits well, lucky I had it on during my last Tesco trip, a guy wearing a bright yellow reflective jacket was standing right behind me and leant over me to get to some pasta, my instinct was to push him away with my blue disposable glove covered hand, he responded with 'what's your problem' I then proceeded to explain that his life was in danger not from the C19 but me, as the next time he was in striking distance I intended to send him to hospital, he looked at me as if I was mad, he was correct I was really mad, at him for being an arsehole, I told him to 'F&&k Off' and carried on shopping, I didn't see him again, but I hope he has learnt a lesson.
I am not particularly worried about C19 it's the idiots that ignore all the advice that scares me the most, The mask thing wont stop me catching it if some breathes all over me, but it will prevent me from passing anything on, the important bit of kit is the disposable gloves, you just don't wont to touch anything anymore but you have to, so wear gloves and wash your hands correctly, I did a food hygiene course a couple of years ago and wash my hands for 20 seconds all the time as taught in the course, so it's not a problem for me, but as you all know I work in a college and I have seen several kids coming out of the traps/cubicle and just walk straight out the door without washing their hands 'Dirty little bastards', I think they may join the Darwin Awards and suffer from the C19 problem, for those of you that don't know what the Darwin Awards are Click Here.
We are all now aware of how this mess started, In China, in the Wet Markets, so what should the Chinese do to stop the spread, well, the first thing they should have done was close all the borders, cancel all fights and boats leaving the country and place a total lock down in place, we here should have closed our borders immediately, we are an island, we could have been C19 free, but we acted to late, and we are still letting people in by setting up flights to bring UK citizens home, I say that's a mistake, leave them where they are until this is all over, I know it sounds a bit drastic, but we need to keep C19 out and a total closing of borders is the only way.
I have spoken to friends who work in hospitals and I know a politician who is very close to Boris, and I am told we are at this time losing the battle, so to finish I have just this to say "PLEASE, stay safe, well and follow the government guide lines"
