  1. Well, interesting news on a lot of fronts. Not actually anything much to encourage the must shield or should shield people to go out I’d have thought – the consequences for us in those groups should we contract covid-19 are not significantly reduced even if NHS beds are more available should we do so.

    Lockdown easing just seems to give us more opportunity of being in one of those beds than it did previously should we go out.

    That said people I know in those groups and those in contact with them are venturing out and further and wider (some weather permitting)… as are so many others. People choosing when and if to adhere to guidelines are becoming increasingly prevalent.

    Beijing has just returned to lockdown.

    It will be an interesting next few weeks. I certainly won’t be standing in a queue outside Primark in that time.
