  I think the renting of masks is a media bulls--- story Dave. We very seldom see someone without a mask, no entry to shops or malls without one on. In our local supermarkets trolleys are compulsory to maintain the 1.5 meters. Feels stupid when you pass someone and smile then realise they can't see you.

  FREE ENTERPRISE AT WORK IN SA.
The Black taxi associations who are quite powerful here have instructed their members to disregard the governments instructions on social distancing and fill their taxis to capacity. Anywhere between 16 and 22 in a Toyota Hi Ace.
Now in another example of free enterprise they will rent passengers who dont have masks the use of one for an extra R5 to be handed back at the end of the journey.

Good news for all you folk worried about the virus, it would seem from my visit to Tesco today that it’s gone. Almost all the steps taken to deal with it have gone, no direction arrows, no barriers at cashpoints, just a few signs saying keep 2m apart.

They must know something I don’t huh.gif



What will they do on Friday when it's compulsory to wear masks? unsure.gif

I'm a bit confused ... unsure.gif

So was Confuciuss but they still listened tongue.gif
I think the basic test, the one we see carried out on people coming to be be tested while in their vehicle, would show an incres=ase in normal body temperature indicating a probable `positive':one might test positive after having carried the virus for some time without knowing, I guess.
The WHO are now saying that there is evidence of an airborne spread of the virus so that might make the zone of 1.5m/2m a bit redundant.
We're in month #7 now and Dr Fauci has already stated that the first wave of Covid19 is nowhere near over while in other parts of the globe the second wave has already hit.
with an average 18 months to bring a tried and tested vacine onto the market aaaaa9and with Trump standong buy to buy it all up - if he gets a second term), we still have a year's wait in front of us before we can, hopefully, wave goodby to this virus at least.
I saw in the news the other day that in one of the reserves they are finding dead elephants in unfathomable numbers: apparently just keeled over and died. No indication of predator attacks, poatchers (tusks intact) or poisened waterholes and they're not just looking at `old' beasts.
They are now checking for virus.
"as of yet there is no sign of of anything that can be passed over to humans2, a spokesman said.
Whatever that was supposed to mean. unsure.gif

Given the virus is alleged to take upto three weeks for symptoms to show, and how long it takes to get a test and then get the results, something does not seem quite right here unsure.gif


I don't want to bring the wrath of some down on me again, but i have said from the off that something doesn't seem quite right to me.

  WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19 - 7 July 2020

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening.

It took 12 weeks for the world to reach 400 thousand cases of COVID-19.

Over the weekend, there were more than 400 thousand cases across the globe.

  I'm a bit confused, English pubs open on Saturday and three are closed again on Monday because someone tested positive for Covid19. Given the virus is alleged to take upto three weeks for symptoms to show, and how long it takes to get a test and then get the results, something does not seem quite right here unsure.gif
