Day 16 of Lockdown

If you’re ever wondering if you and your SO are on the same page fold a large blanket together. You’ll have your answer quickly.

Rest In Peace, Mo

Today, we lost the first person that I personally knew to the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Hay Bale Fires & COVID-19 Coronavirus

When I was a firefighter, one of the hardest things to extinguish was a bale of hay/straw. I won't go into the science, but it has a massive surface area because of the individual strands.
Anyway, you'd absolutely douse it in water or whatever and when you thought it was fully contained and fully extinguished, a couple of burning embers located close to each other would just start the whole thing off again and you'd be back to square one with a fully involved hay bale firefight again...

COVID-19 will be like that. We will get complacent and we will think we've got it contained. Remember it started with one or two people, and when we think we're all sorted, there'll be one or two carriers (burning embers) who unbeknownst to them start the spread all over again - and the whole world will have to stop and fight it again.

We MUST see out the lockdowns properly, because the better we do it, the sooner we can get out of it.

(By the way, you have to totally rip apart the hay bale until you can practically see every strand...let's not get to that point, eh?)
