  1. Very minimalistic 🙂 Do you have a SLURL?
  2. Ah, thanks for these, I wasn't aware of them. You can actually get the data online, too - I did a quick search. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/slides-and-datasets-to-accompany-coronavirus-press-conferences (in case anybody is interested)
  3. At this point, I'm getting terribly frustrated about the Covid-19 numbers being expressed as absolute numbers (786 deaths today!!), whether it be deaths, cases, recoveries or what not. Sure, it's more dramatic that way, and that's what sells news, but surely it's more important to understand the magnitude of the disease, so that it can be better…well, not sure controlled is the right word, but we need to try. Also I get pretty scared when I read about what we learn about how the virus affects the body - it is NOT like a bad flu. It potentially affects several critical area of the body bes
  4. Joking (or sexuality) aside... touch is hugely important. One of the most heartbreaking aspects of this sh***tshow, I think, is families not allowedto hug their loved ones who might be about to die, or people not being able to hug each other for comfort. Touch matters a hell of a lot.
  5. Ahhh, it was really interesting to see it laid out like that - thanks. OTOH, odds mean nothing if one ends up being in that one in a hundred... 😏 Yes, it's about buying time.
  6. Now I'm getting even more scared than I was... I figured that even if I bring virus particles in through the soles of my shoes, they'll stay on the floor and eventually die off, and I'm not in the habit of touching the floor, so the risk there is negligible (even for somebody as paranoid as me) - have I got that wrong? Also, can the virus get on clothes just from being outside? Is it that bad??? I have so many questions... sigh.
  7. Mmmm... expensive. I made my own hand cream with coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, avocado oil and lavender essential oil. It should work...
  8. Regional differences? 😏 Your Asda is smarter than mine, obviously.
  9. And that's not good either, but the UK is supposed to have a good healthcare system. I'm sure it'll get done (in both UK and US)... eventually.
  10. Oh, that make me laugh so hard that I nearly choked 😄
  11. So I got a delivery from ASDA yesterday (I was lucky to get a slot 2 weeks ago;I doubt I'll manage to get another delivery for at least 3 months), and you would think that they would relax the law about not using plastic bags to bring your shopping but they don't ($££"%&^%$£%^!!!!!!!!!!!!!). So I had to pick up lots and lots of packages (I'm not complaining, at least I have food supplies - definitely too many potatoes though, and a bottle of olive oil that wasn't on the shopping list; it'll be good for the local food bank) and for now anything non perishable in spread all over my living r
  12. @Alwin Alcott so so so sorry to hear that, Alwin. This pandemic is like WW3, so many people dying before their time. This thread really really needs a hug icon. Mmmm, has that been asked before? Would that require a JIRA?
  13. I got one (after abandoning the first one) in Albuhayra. Oh, I like this new release system.....
  14. yeah, same here. Unknown error over and over... oh, and now they are gone... did they only release one region? was it a test? I would have expected the log homes release to be a large one? edit 2 - I got one on my alt...going inworld to see it now. So keep trying, everybody! It works.
  15. I'm good for toilet paper (and washing up liquid - also a scarce resource) for now. You? Good on you for managing to pick up a Sainsbury slot - all I get is the message they are "prioritising the vulnerable" (which is good, of course). I did try Ocado yesterday, they now have a queuing just to enter the website. My starting position was 33807. (Waiting wasn't much use anyway, because there were no delivery slots...) At least there's food in the local shops, which is something, but I'd much rather not buy in person (though I'll have to, and I'm grateful that I'm able to) because
