Disappointing lack of direction from the top brass at work.

Talking to friends, most have been told "if you can work from home then you should."

Is that the consensus?

Our office is closed tomorrow, not sure yet if that’s just for the day or more prolonged period

We were told to work from home for 2 weeks from tomorrow, not that easy when you have a baby

We made the decision to go full remote last week until the end of April but a good 60% of the company is already like that - we pay for external screens and bits when people start.

My work is about to temporarily lay off 2000 of us tomorrow, myself included. Due to Scandi contract can claim from the Government for redundancy pay which is about 62% of salary so it’ll cover the bills etc but it’s still a ballache as we don’t know when it’ll end.

Aye work in Oil and Gas. But on a noggie contract.

Like I said I’m very grateful we get such good redundancy money so just have to pull up my socks for a few months. Last time this happened I went travelling but can’t even do that now Laughing out loud

….whose party has chronically underfunded the very system they hope will save them during this crisis. Read a doctor's view the other day that our health system is no better than the Italian system. Saturation may come about much faster than we think. Only 5000 intensive care beds in the UK, 80% of which are already filled. Hope medical staff and patients don't find themselves in the same situation as Italy.

Personally I think most EU countries are acting way too slowly in tackling this outbreak, both governments and citizens alike, and this is even fooler considering what's going on in other countries like Italy, where I'm from and where I live, and what's the only proven way to stop this (see China).

Boris position is the worst among the lot by far

Fake news

FYI, more than 90% of Chinese in Italy come from Wenzhou area, in Zhejiang province, some 900km away from Wuhan\Hubei, and this is even more true for those working in the textile industry in the Prato area, near Florence.

Also, Italy stopped flights from\to China end of Jan\early Feb, people who went there for Chinese New Year are locked there (my neighbours flew there Dec 28th, still haven't seen them back here…)

I don’t plan on getting killed by the flu lol. Unless you’re over 80 stop worrying and get on with your lives.
Media getting on the hype train and the sheep are following. Spewing up facts they’ve read on an info graphic on Instagram.

How about not being a cunt and spreading it, then? It’s great that it won’t kill you but it will kill older people and others with weakened immune systems.

THIS!

And even more, maybe it won't kill you Nigel, as hopefully many other 'youngsters' like us on here, but this doesn't mean that you won't need intensive care, which is a limited resource and this will lead to choices on who to care\save…

Youngsters now make up about 1% of FUK demographic. Most GJ's have swerved Gore-tex and are panic buying 3 ply bog roll, Mielè chest freezers, frozen chickens, mortice locks and Co-Op funeral insurance.
