For NORPIG's attention.

Are you aware of this?

Two more life-saving Covid drugs discovered

The UK government is working closely with the manufacturer, to ensure the drugs - tocilizumab and sarilumab - continue to be available to UK patients.

More about it here -

Its an empty gesture, NHS staff would prefer to have proper PPE and adequate staffing levels to cope with the current situation than all their neighbours clapping them.

Unfortunately some police are idiots. Derbyshire seem to have a track record for being over zealous and refusing to use common sense.

Apparently 1 in 30 Londoners have Covid now  Shocked

Sadiq Khan has classed it as major incident.

I do agree about the Derbyshire Police xmiles, seemed way over the top! Trouble is there is no guidelines on how far you can travel to exercise, is 5 miles too much?

I think most people would agree that 5 miles is "local" though.

I read somewhere that you shouldn't drive more (including return) than you exercise. That doesn't seem unreasonable as people are presumably driving to quiet spots for walks or runs.

Why do they have to drive anywhere to walk? Just step out of your front door and put one foot in front of the other.

I do walk in built up areas and the countryside. The latter is far more enjoyable and better for your health.

I've been doing a load more walking since Covid struck and being of a certain age and health I've had to improvise my walks to avoid being around as many people as I can which leads to all sorts of counterintuitive stuff.

For instance during the original lockdown the obvious places to go for a walk are the local parks or scenic areas - but everyone else do the same, so those became the areas I would tend to avoid and instead used to wander around the commercial districts and town centres instead because the office workers were working from home and virtually all the shops were shut, which meant there was hardly anyone around.

Similarly in summer, where my daughter lives is just off the Thames and a nice stroll to go and visit her would be along the Thames footpath but of course everyone else were out on their walks themselves and thus it was rammed with people, cyclists, joggers and everybody else enjoying the sunshine and the views.  I actually found that walking down the main residential streets running parallel to the river, there were far fewer people about and thus less potentially hazardous to my health.

In the winter months I found a late evening walks in the dark and cold in the local parks to be the place where most sensible people won't be found although you need to avoid the car park areas where the local youth are parked up in their hired BMW's smoking their weed which you can actually smell from quite a distance on the wind.

I'm not an antisocial person by nature but needs most and until I have both of my jabs I'll stay away from the crowd on my little walks the best I can.

As for the two ladies above, we only have their side of the story.  

Would people's view of the police action change if they had been caught doing this a number of times previously and asked not to - but ignored the warnings and persisted never the less?

Just a thought.

Pretty lucky here, in that we have some really nice walks on our doorstep. Croft is always nice for a stroll, and is quiet at the best of times, but the village is quieter still at the moment.

With Boris Johnson spotted cycling in the Olympic Park on Sunday and now visiting Bristol today, it seems that everybody must stay at home apart from Boris who accuses the public of complacency!

Over 93000 deaths with Covid on the death certificate apparently - somewhat different from the announced figures which only include those who die within 28 days of contracting it and as we know, it can take months.
