    The country to watch is Sweden. It held fast in refusal to close schools and restaurants.
    We will see which countries self harmed.
    The ones who closed it all down, making massive future financial problems.
    Or the ones that stayed open, and solvent.

    So what are the fell running community doing to support local businesses who have supported us in our endeavours previously? We are their lifeblood.
    So, if you want to see your local running shop still trading or a big red van at a fell race in the future now is the time to support them.
    I know financial issues are a day to day reality at the moment but we need to do our bit if we can. I'm not going away on holiday next week so the money I have saved is going on a new pair of shoes from Pete Bland. Simple.

    Just read an article on that. It will be fascinating to see if their decision is vindicated or not.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/202...iftigniter-rhr

    The article also says that of the 800 confimred cases on the Diamond Princess cruise ship, four fifths had either mild symptoms or none at all.

    My experience from Portugal is a substantial proportion have had it and it was annoying not desperate. At a time authorities said there were only 200 cases

    Sadly in the uk boris wanted to go that way but , we have a vociferous minority who seem to think only the NHS matters who won’t be happy till 100 percent of GDP is spent there, they think the rest of the population Are non essential.

    Do these people ever wonder where the money comes from to pay them? Read the article by whinger chief editor of the lancet. Wouldn’t matter what Boris did he would whinge.

    So Boris would not have been allowed to do it

    If I get Covid 19 I want the establishment/celebrity "mild symptoms" version, that comes with a free corona test.

    Whilst on the subject of celebrity it seems to me that every time I turn the television on, which isn't very often these days, there is a so called celebrity promoting themselves or there wares from their living room.The BBC cannot get enough of this of this crap. My other gripe is the news channels telling us what, again celebrities, are posting on twitter. I am not interested and if I was I would be on twitter.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog
