...By the way my prayers are with herd immunity guys ...
Good luck to you and yours. I just read that anyone over 60 years old will not be admitted to intensive care there, but will be on their own...... is this true?
the UK is about to announce that 70+ age persons will be shielded (supported in isolating at home indefinitely)
because these persons otherwise would endanger everyone else by overloading the health services
but everyone else is expected to contribute to herd 'immunity'
so at my age (68) aren't I dangerous to myself and so to everyone else ?
though the Govt position clearly shows that I have the same ICU rights as an 18 year old
it's ok though - there is to be an emergency programme of ventilator manufacture by outside industry
now (finding that I am not to be shielded) I tested my capacity for online purchase/delivery of foodstuffs
it doesn't seem to work for me
is this because I have only Windows 7 ?
(this now unsupported by Microsoft since 14th Jan)
