    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    Seve All Health (Medical and Dental) insurances work that way. Even the UK based ones. The coverage varies, depending on which plan you sign up for. As I wrote, their president is creating a law that will make the testing free for the uninsured.

    Trade Kettle.

    I will check if I can see any name on Saturday. Maybe not refined casting, but that just gives it character! Depending on weather, I might remove the paint already next week, if too cold now, then in summer. The company that take care of my boat have promised me they can weld it up, but I...

    This is funny! This joke was popular amongst the German troops during WW2. Dad retold me that one, including demonstrating. ( not wiping bum, but scrunched together lips) Will you not risk a visit from the Police if you buy lots and lots of Rizlas?

    Trade Kettle.

    I checked online and yes, exactly like that. Mine might even come from Scotland, as there were lots of trade between! I have a couple I found inside the cellar, but only one is in a very good condition. One hole, good remaining iron thickness, not much rust. The Scottish ones, were they...

    Those S size, thin, hard, shiny squares were the norm beyond the Iron Border too...... You had to squish them up. Technique sensitive. Two Ply and soft - pure indulgent luxury! But I still think those old papers were more hygienic. Plus they were made from unbleached pulp = less toxic stuff

    Also, it is important people do not rush to their GP as soon as they get a tiny bit feverish. Most of those are just a common cold, and even if is the Covid-19 the vast number of infected are fine staying at home. Plus the healthcare system can not take care of a large number of extra patients.

    Trade Kettle.

    In central Europe Germanic and Slavic countries) they use unlined for 'sugar work' and jams. I wish I lived close to you, we could barter. Next week I am taking an old three legged pot to have a draining hole welded shut. Cast Iron, pre cooker age. I estimate made before mid 1800'. It was...

    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    What makes this one 'interesting' is that it started several months ago, but was partially ignored. It came during the very mild/small 'normal' flu. Which many people got vaccinated against, so it never became a problem. i suspect that the pharma companies were busy manufacturing the vaccine...

    Negative propaganda. More and more insurance companies (US and International) are covering the testing 100%, and the US Leader is now taking taking measures to make it available and free for the uninsured. Who wrote that? The vaccine is a couple of months away, so do not count on it, as it...

    I would never inject my penis. Never! :) But you can ask your GP to give you one there. Might be the only action it sees! :) :)

    The Mercury compound is very normal, it is a preservative. Called Thiomersal. Extensively researched over decades, harmless. It has been used in hundreds of millions of injections, no side effects noted. Of course, it is one of the substances those Antivaxxers talk about. Those people have...

    Same $hit in Sweden. Did they do something legally with the manufacturer of that vaccine? Who made it? In many countries the vaccines are given cheaply or for free to the vulnerable groups. Please give a moments thought to the people that are heavily exposed to the risks. The till operators...

    There has never been a response like this from Governments ( in various countries) before. Yes, agree, they are taking it seriously. Here, we do not allow any cruise ships to land and discharge the passengers, if anybody onboard has flu like symptoms. The latest one this morning.

    Well, it is Italy. I lived there for two years, and my impression was formed( and still is) that nothing works as it could and should.

    Are people in the UK taking Covid19 seriously? If not, why not?

    No Government has ever done anything to prevent an epidemic or a pandemic, so we should not blame this one. They listen to advisers and (usually) take the measures these people recommend. If the recommendation is of a type 'lockdown' people will think it is much more severe than it is, and...

    A healthy wife/husband is very good too. Due to my lower back, I have not been able to bend much for years. And due to bad knees, I can not bend or twist them much. Guess who cuts my toe nails? :)

    Trade Kettle.

    Pots/pans made for boiling or melting sugar are not tin lined because of the high temperature of the sugar.
