News today, US 402-923 confirmed

Uk deaths over 900 in last 24 hrs

I went shopping for Bob and Liz today, and Bob did not want me to go to the city, so went to Oakchurch, this is big store, has most everything, most home made from there and Herefordshire and Wales

The set up was best I have seen, you stand 4 meters away, then use the hand sanitiser, and there is water and paper towel that must be used before going in.

You wait and are called in as one goes out, and you pick up a fully disinfected tolley at the door.

It's one way round but you can back track, as the store is so big, I picked up home made burgers made there, and home made bread, and rolls and a good trolly full of items, they grow all there own veg: and fruit, there is also there wine, home made sweets too

Garden seeds and compost on way out, three 50 leter bags for £10-00.

You stand well back from the till, and called over to pay, tills have plastic screens, you then take the goods to your car, and return the trolly to be disinfected.

Oakchurch as where they did film for Tv, and you may have seen photos of Lady-J Christmas shopping in that very store.

The veg, food and meat, garden centre clothes, shoes cards and toy shop is all open, the jewelry shop and restaunt is closed, all in all, it was very well set up.

And you could shop as long as you wanted.

Here is a link, http://www.oakchurch.net/ and video, of the store.





I felt at easy going there, and was much better than the city, they are also people we know, Liz will now have much to do in the garden, and started planting seeds today I'm told.

Here again is Carlys link to the outbreak map, https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html

Hi folks, just checking in to say that I'm fine. I do live near a big city but where I am isn't such a busy area as where Mr Kats is so it's easier to keep away from people.

The number of deaths in the UK is a higher percentage of the confirmed cases compared with the world total.

Yes think that is only to say that we have mass numbers who have it, staying at home with it, or got better.

From what have been seeing, Uk have lack of testing so can't give ture numbers of cases

It is easy to count the dead and one's in treatment, but who know how many are really out there

Good to know you are fine Ursa Major, and are not in the centre of the town, do stay safe.

Latest news today,

Global confirmed cases: 1,602,855; total deaths: 95,735 (JHU)

UK confirmed cases: 65,077; total deaths: 7,978 (DHSC)

Prime Minister Boris Johnson out of intensive care and remains in hospital for “early phase of his recovery”, Downing Street says.

Britons told to stay home to have a “safe Easter” over concerns people will break lockdown rules during warm holiday weekend.

People once again took part in ClapForOurCarers, stepping out in doorways, balconies and windows to applaud for key workers.
