    Guys how are you doing with this virus going on..

    I get what you mean, some people are still going out in rather large crowds and these are the people that will make it worse for all of us.

    And thanks to those nutters, UK now is forced to order everyone to stay home for a minimum of 3 weeks, with the exception of going out to buy necessities and one daily exercise with a 2m distance from everyone.

    Could foresee this happening as it is so infamous that some British just can’t go a week without a pint in pub or travel to the seaside for a sunshine when they have time to kill. They treat a national emergency as if it is a national holiday for mass gathering with thousands crowded on beaches last weekend. FFS!

    Already prepared for the worst bought enough dry food to hold on for 2 months without going out at all. But I always hope for the best and get relieved when better often pops up, and it turns out the worst does come up this very first time when I was reluctantly buying so much at the time.

    (Disclaimer: Those dry food are Japanese cup noodles and Thai rice from China Town which 99% local British would not have known about its existence, let alone tried it before - so there’s nothing like something was overbought and then others couldn’t buy it)

    Wish everyone safe and sound at home. And also take great care of loved ones, especially elderly and those with needs.

    We have been on lockdown technically for around 11 days now, some chain stores are still open but most are voluntarily closing, most restaurants are only giving takeaways, Mc Donald’s has shut down all its chains, they don’t have police roaming the streets asking what you are doing but I am predicting it will happen soon, All schools and colleges and public buildings still remain closed here.

    We also got 219 new cases and 2 new deaths which is also our largest amount of deaths in a day so far during the outbreak.

    At the moment by the way things are progressing here, we will probably end up going into strict lockdown, like the ones imposed in Spain and Italy. We are technically in lockdown right now but if they bring this in, you can only go to supermarkets and pharmacies and you can go out for 30 minutes exercise and then, back inside for the rest of the day.

    We will see how it progresses but hopefully we will all be fine, I’d say we will.

    Guys in Phillipines it is getting more hard and have big problems because of the corona virus.....

    No public transport anymore here..... I see only private cars and motorcycles and bicycle (what I use)...... When I have to buy food but we stay as much in the house only in the morning we go outside our door to catch some sun (vitamin D) when there are no other people.

    But the people who do not have jobs now= no salary = can not buy food......... the goverment have to help them now otherwise it will be chaos 1 of there days.

    The economic, social and health cost, as well as having either or, will be a huge issue to resolve.

    No money
    = rather risk to work
    = higher chance to catch the virus for ourselves and family
    = even less money later when long-term health may deteriorate if catching virus
    = society as a whole will get more widely spreaded and even less business can be done
    = even less money

    Therefore, the most sensible solution for governments, in the long run when lockdown is still in place, is to at least provide rations of basic food and necessities for free, so those who need food on the table would not risk themselves and also others for an even more serious outbreak just for the sake of basics. It would also stop the few from hoarding food and necessities as well.

    Just need 1 virus carrier to become 415 in a 30-day cycle when restrictions are not working. It is quite an easy and straightforward choice of providing free basics with limited cost vs some hundreds of thousands overwhelming the healthcare system with thousands of deaths with grieve and emotional drain in a country.
