Well my neighbour doesnt seem fussed. His over 70 and gets up to 2 deliveries of shopping a week, goes for walks into Dawlish, pops off to the graden centre for bags of compost. Has people around to cut his hedges. Had his son come around for nearly a week to put a fence up in his back garden. Both his sons and daughter have brought their young children around who he has touched and breathed ...

Almost nine out of 10 older people say their social contact has reduced significantly during the pandemic, with one lady telling Sky News that Boris Johnson’s latest address to the nation was “like a guillotine coming down”. Jennifer, 70, from Dawlish in South Devon, says she has felt “marginalised” due to her age - an issue which has got worse due to the pandemic. "You belong there and ...

@DEEDOODLE a) About 70% I believe. b) Correct. c) Wot? I was tested and it gave me confidence to continue working in the environment that I do.

60 hours from test to result for me. I think that's brilliant! You always get whingers...it's in their personality! When this is all over you want to be proud of what you did and negativity is not going to do that.

It's not a case of going for a test if you feel you are sick, testing the population is a way of finding out who has the virus and those that may have had it or if anyone is asymptomatic.
