I think we'll still be allowed to go outdoors to exercise won't we? 

In Spain people can go out to exercise or walk dogs. Together if they're from the same household I think. 

London will be locked down first so I guess we'll see what the rules are like there. It's a shame so many will undoubtedly react with panic and stockpiling... as though the government would leave us to starve in our homes.

Which is probably why the police and military will end up on the streets. People are behaving like children which is how we'll have to be treated.

I thought it would have to an individual thing.

If I can get out on the bike and go for walks then It'll be bearable.

I have the virus and I'm really struggling to get out of bed but I have to because I have other people to look after. I'm constantly exhausted, EVERYTHING is aching and I keep going from being too hot to freezing cold and shivering. I feel really weak but this is not the illest I've ever been (it will obviously affect certain groups of people differently) but it's definitely not nice. Still don't feel the urge to stockpile toilet paper, though.

Ash, serious question, how do you know it's not just ordinary flu.  A constant cough is one of the symptoms of this virus

The military are the the worst people to help police the streets. They are not really trained in diplomacy and will tend to react aggressively to confrontation.

How does it work going shopping when you're restricted to 2 items of things?  Supposing you're doing a family shop, or on behalf of isolated friends and relatives. What's to stop people going round again?

That’s the issue. There will be genuine reasons to buy loads of supplies, large families, buying for vulnerable parents/friends as well as your own but unfortunately there’s a large proportion of people who’s actions have made this necessary. It will only spike again when the government implement the next phase of control measures. So the question a lot of people will ask themselves is, if it’s going to get worse again sometime soon do they preempt and jump the gun so to speak. Vicious cycle indeed

I hope you feel better soon, all the best, mate.

This is the thing though... apparently younger people have had it and said it literally felt like a mild cold. Some people have said they are positive and have had zero symptoms (Idris Elba was one I think). Then there are others it is hitting like a freight train. 

I had a sore throat, cold and banging headache over the weekend. Feel a little achey, low energy and have chills this week. No idea what it is as can't be tested. Obviously I self-isolated anyway as can't be too careful.

Indeed all the best Ash, not knowing if you have it or not must be difficult and when if possible would you be tested?

I went into 15 local shops today not a single egg anywhere nor toilet paper, called Daniel, he lives out in the sticks and the village shop had plenty of eggs.

Because there are so many things going round this is why there is so much panic across the nation. COVID 19 we are told has very specific symptoms and if your cold/flu does not match  then chances are you o not have it
