I think it's a pretty inevitable result when you have tens of millions of bored and or desperate people with too much time on their hands instead of working, as if I needed more reasons to be a shutdown skeptic.

Unreal. They're making it painstakingly obvious that they are FULLY aware of how gullible (and flat out stupid) the masses are. To be able to broadcast such a statement so confidently.......

What an absolute joke.

Meanwhile in the good old kingdom that is far from united..

Back to work on Monday the 15th. Country is definitely nowhere near ready, the sheer ignorance and idiocy of the public on the occasions I've had to leave the house during lockdown for food and whatnot, it's madness. I absolutely understand the need to get the country moving again as fast as possible but not like this man. I work in what is I think to you guys is sort of gamestop? We buy, sell and exchange electronics and games and the business model revolves entirely around second hand stock being traded in by the public. Naturally, we get a fair share of the dregs as a glorified pawn shop with no buy back, and you can imagine the hygiene standards a solid 30% of our customer base had prior to all of this!

As far as precautions go, floor stickers and signage, a flimsy moveable perspex screen for individuals, not the whole till area (which is ridiculous.. if we get an angry customer, sorry, when we get an angry customer - you can bet everything the first thing they'll do is toss the screen aside or punch it!). Other than that, we've had an extra 2 hours tacked onto our workdays for pre and post cleaning, have to wear gloves but face masks are not considered necessary, wipe down counters and card machines every time they're used and have someone on the door only allowing in 9 people at any one time. This sounds like a lot I guess written out but I can safely say I feel pretty unsafe.

The country itself is divided between stubborn people who refuse to acknowledge the severity of it and won't really adhere to the proper guidelines laid out by the government, the other half just want to stay indoors till this all blows over. Speaking of guidelines, everything has been handled late and poorly and the general consensus is the 'guidelines' are just that, being treated as more of a suggestion. The PM also has a wonderful habit of announcing relaxing restrictions or rule changes on Thursday evenings, which consistently leads to hafl the countries alcoholics and yolo generation going out on the piss all weekend, gathering like there's nothing happening and trashing the hell out of parks, beaches etc over the weekend, when the amended rules/restrictions aren't taking effect till the Monday. It's so very frustrating. We're a country of stubborn assholes that when you tell em not to do something, they do it twice as much.

Scariest thing is this is a pandemic on easy mode really, if it were deadly on the levels of some of the other viruses floating around well sweet baby jesus we'd be starting clean as a world I suppose!

Hope you're all staying as safe as you can during the apocalyptic hellyear that is 2020.

Abso-fuckin'-lutely. When I was in high school, a friends dad worked for the CDC here in Atlanta and told us horror stories about some of the diseases and viruses they had on hand in their secure labs. Shit so deadly that if you took it out of containment and were to take an eye dropper and drop one drop of water into the dish, the resulting microscopic mist cast off from it would kill every one in the building and within a 5 block radius.

I truly do believe that the recent riots are (in part) orchestrated to purposefully fuel a 2nd wave of this virus.

It allegedly took us 4 to 5 months to kick this thing's ass. Where does another 4 to 5 months land us? Oh yeah, that's right, NOVEMBER.
