The comments I made and make on your blogs do not register and haven’t during my blog sabbatical.  I have been unable thus far to resolve the situation  This is something I should have told you as soon as I returned from my sabbatical a month ago because it’s still happening. On top of this, there are new comments on old blog posts when comments allowed comments that I don’t seem able to reply to. Apologies. It’s very frustrating.

COVID-19

And now to the pandemic. Please keep safe and follow best practice. There’s a great deal of fake advice out there so check your sources.

In the UK, we have been very ill-served by the Prime Minister (no surprise when you look at the lies spouted about Brexit which pushed so many to believe it would be ‘a good thing’ when it clearly isn’t.  The UK is at least two weeks behind many European and other countries. I believe this is down to Boris Johnson and his pro-Brexit cohorts whose attitude to Europe has coloured their ability to get ahead of the curve, not to mention the appalling cuts the Conservatives had already made during their time in power which now means we have front-line responders like the NHS, who were already struggling from the cuts, struggling even more with the added horror of contracting the coronavirus. Politicians’ negligence is criminal.

This article from The Lancet explains much of what the Tories have done in the interests of no one: Offline: COVID-19 and the NHS—“a national scandal”

I have a continuing sore throat but no other symptoms. However, I have a host of underlying conditions, including my lungs, which make me high risk. If I get the virus, there’s a good chance of my not surviving.

A very dear friend of mine has just lost her husband who died in a London hospital on Friday. They have two sons. When it’s somebody you know, your mind and your dreams go into overdrive. I can’t stop thinking of the family and how profound their grief must be. They were not, of course, allowed in the ambulance, nor to visit him in hospital.

Take care, keep safe and keep laughing!
