And this is what is wrong with this country!

Everyone always trying to find a loophole!

People are going out for "exercise" who would never normally get off their arses!

Treating this like a bank holiday! and missing the essential travel part! is it essential to drive 40 miles to go for a walk!

No wonder all other countries hate us brits

Seriously stay home and get this shit out the way!

Keep moving about and the virus will never go

Just remember a virus doesn't spread! people spread a virus

Alternatively people who have never exercised are taking the opportunity to and this will benefit the health service long term and as long as they maintain social distancing whilst engaging in their one exercise activity all is good.
We are not in a total lock down, we need a sustainable solution because this is not going away soon. It is not going to be a case of everyone stay in and in a month it’s gone. I suspect we will need to keep going for months.
I did some calculations the other day and if we can cope at this level and there are 200,000 wild cases but we need 40 million for heard immunity to have had it and we stop exponential growth that is 20 months more. lots of supposition there but i think logical thinking.

I am worried about you !
Is there anyway you can go back to work and do calculations like that for the benefit of your employers/partners.
My concern is you will confuse the hard of thinking (most of them round here! ) and you could start panic using words like " Logical" and "thinking".
Cheers

I’m not off work. Us urgent homeopaths must not stop. The homeopathy service is thinking long term like this.

My employers are well aware of this :-)

The World Health Organisation says we can go out for exercise as long as we don't mix with people.
The TV keeps saying 'stay indoors' when it should be saying 'stay at home'.
I don't understand the once a day thing.
How can they police that? I go for a run at six most mornings, I have always gone at this time specifically to avoid having to speak to people, long before all this. Does that mean I'm not allowed to go for a walk? We live in a pretty rural area so it's easy to avoid crowds and buildings.
As for the bike, surely it's more responsible to take a solo ride to get food, than to use public transport?
(Our son has to borrow our car for the week whilst his is being repaired, and delivery slots are at least three weeks away).
But, as we have been specifically instructed not to move about, where does that leave us if we need to claim on insurance for something?

Just use some common sense. The restrictions are in place because too many people don't have any common sense.

I very much doubt the police are hiding in hedgerows counting how often people in rural areas step outside their gate.

I've seen videos and read in the news (with pictures) about people:

- taking a tortoise for a walk (on a lead)
- taking a chicken for a walk (on a lead)
- taking a stuffed dog for a walk (on what looks like a belt), actually dragging the soft toy along the ground
- people walking around for hours with plastic shopping bags to make it appear that they had just been out to get some food

I'm in Spain at the moment and see all new levels of creativity occurring!

Actually, it's very serious here so I advise you all to take the utmost care and attention and be super/hyper vigilant. Do not underestimate this highly contagious and very deceptive virus. You don't want what's happening here to happen where you are :!:
