    There has been lots of activity in my local area with builders working all hours over the weekend in the big financial company buildings with large open plan trading floors. I'm guessing that all this work paid for by these financial employers was not cheap but hey it's done to protect the workers/employees who are now drifting back to the offices (or at least to stop them from employee claims against them...).

    So imagine that these employees who spend most of their day cosseted in these luxurious offices in The City, all socially distancing...

    Well I passed a few of these offices earlier today, imagine my surprise to find groups of workers stood/sat outside these offices "having a fag" with no effort at all tying to social distancing outside the office...!?! They can't all be family members...!?!

    Have I missed something? Is the war against the Coronavirus been won and no-one told me (or the employers, who must be feeling they wasted their money on the alteration works!) ...??? :wtf:

    You missed that they just don't like, as a direct consequence they are doing it to wind you up.

    Why odd? The WHO and other countries recognised taste as a symptom a long time ago. The surveys are not usually English (depends on site) England has only just adopted taste as a symptom.

    I listened to the explanation for the delay in accepting anosmia as a symptom yesterday, but I couldn't help thinking it was just another example where the UK "experts" refuse to accept the expertise of their colleagues worldwide.

    It makes absolutely no sense, considering that health minister Nadine Dorries reported that this was the impact of the virus on her back in March.

    Just another oddity to add to the list of odd decisions taken (or not taken) when the rest of the world seemed to be going in another direction. 35000 dead.....
    Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me
