It's because they changed what they are measuring rather than any material change in the situation.

Well, it appears we have our first case imported through Iran.

Cheap airline tickets though, every cloud and such...positive thoughts.

Well that escalated pretty quickly; my local Pak n Sneeze was chocka-block full of people wearing masks piling up trolley loads with sacks of rice, Dettol, bottled water, coca cola, tissues, toilet paper and tinned food.

FFS it was to totally mental and pretty damned scary!! God help anyone who is really is in need of some toilet paper tomorrow; i expect the shelves will be bare. It's like the apocalypse has arrived, so best y'all grab some weapons, batten down the hatches and protect your resources at all cost for I fear we are just days away from seeing some marauding looters.

Next there'll be a shortage of laundry detergent, all those unwiped bums will see a huge increase in undies with skid marks*

Will you get paid for definate?
If that was for MrBEVS it would have to be unpaid or taken from the 4 week annual allocation.

The new case is related to a family with kids at Westlake Boys and Girls which is our zone. Lucky I stocked up on loo rolls.

Maybe I'll die of coronavirus and be put out of my homesick misery!
