"Private hire"?

Apparently travel between family homes is OK according to the White House
Ms Trump, her husband and fellow administration adviser Jared Kushner, and their three children went to "a closed-down facility considered to be a family home", the statement to US media said.

So I’d only do it if I could get a hire car direct to the airport. But I don’t really want to risk the plane and Logan airport at Boston. So it is a dilemma.

And yeah, I’m perfectly comfortable and safe in rural Norfolk.
If I had to fly in the near future I'd be happier doing it now when the planes are almost empty rather than when restrictions are eased and every dirty Tom, Dick and Harry wants to catch up on their missed air miles.

Trump is amusing when he says things like Canada is going well, probably one of the first borders to open, (not exact words) well orange man its not Canada that is the issues its the US, and Canada wont likely open it to regular traffic until the US is under control.

He is so oblivious to the world around him

This video gives a bit of an idea of what domestic flights look like these days.

Given that at the moment an effective vaccination is just a "hope" it is IMO almost certainly going to take a lot longer than 12 months for most Americans to have access to an effective vaccine.
I’ve just been watching CNN, there were interviewing a researcher from The Jenner Inst. Oxford. He said they have a vaccine and are starting human trials next week. They are pretty confident it will be ready by the autumn with 80% success rate.

There seems to be a fair few trials/possibilities going on around the world, its a rush to see who can make one work. I know there is a trial ongoing in Seattle one of the first, but haven't heard how its going though.

I think with SARS and MERS because neither spread like this one and kind of vanished there was no need to find a vaccine, wasn't widespread enough. I believe there are some coronavirus vaccines for animals, different viruses of course but in the same family, so with the money and need to find one, they may just very well do so.

I'm happy for Canada to keep it's borders closed as long as the US opens it's borders.

Well my parents in England got a text today saying their flight HOME in July is cancelled. But nothing about the outbound flight to America? They were visiting, but now I'm not sure what this actually means? Any ideas?

Prime Minister made it pretty clear it wont be opening anytime soon at least coming north, the US can of course do what they want, but Canada seems to be in no rush.

I am in a position where I can still cross if needed so no biggie, they are not denying USC's and Canada isn't yet denying PR's so could cross in an emergency, but of course I wont unless extreme emergency because of the 14 day quarantine upon return.


Looking at airfares on Delta from Vancouver to California, holy first class only being sold and $2,300 round trip, never seen airfare the high, almost seems they are pricing high to discourage anyone from booking. I can't imagine flights are full, but looking at the seat map seems they are not selling main cabin at the moment on some routes, dunno but that airfare is insane, usually first class round trip is in the $500-$1,000 range.

The first one with a vaccine that works however well they need it to work will be printing their own money.

I'm concerned about the potential ramifications of a vaccine that is rushed out with abbreviated clinical trials. Anyone seen 'I Am Legend'??

That's why I don't think we're going to see a vaccine this side of next March. It's really pointless to roll out a vaccine that cures the disease without knowing what the side effects are. The whole reason our vaccines today actually are safe is because of the rigorous testing.

Would suck to be immune to the rona but then die of mega-cancer because they rushed out the shots. That'd be my bloody luck.

For the record, I fully support vaccination, but I do t think I’ll be rushing out to get this one. Whereas I don’t see people turning into zombies, I don’t think I’d be too happy putting a rushed vaccine into my body. That being said, this vaccine can’t come soon enough LOL.
