A girl on my team took Friday off (we're all working from home now). She had been feeling a little unwell for the last few weeks but as her cough got worse she got in touch with a doctor on Friday. Turns out she had the virus all along and didn't relaise it. She had been staring at home for the last while though, so there's a good chance she hasn't passed it on to anyone.

Mrs. egg_ (who is much improved now, thanks be to fuck) was talking to her cousin, whose 9-year-old is really sick with something atm - bad cough, is too weak to walk more than a few steps. Doctor recommended they take the child to A&E and the cousin's fella (and child's father) says "no", in case the child gets COVID in the hospital

What the actual fuck? Your child is sick a dog (probably with COVID), and an actual doctor recommends you take her to A&E, and you think YOU know better than the fucking doctor?

Same, good to hear of the Mrs. Egg improving.



Other news: God help me but i'm feeling sorry for Simon Harris, even though he's Fine Gael.

So assuming social distancing works and cases start to drop, what actually happens in about 2 weeks? or 4 weeks or 6 weeks or whatever? Where do we go from here?

I'm guessing this might be dictated by the WHO. X amount of days (probably 14) with zero new cases, and a further 14 after that until the all-clear is given. Basically, June.
