How is COVID-19 affecting everyone? The UK is on lockdown, so everyone who can is working from home, e.g. me, and you're only allowed out for essential trips such as buying groceries or visiting Jojobobo's mom. London is eerily quiet - not completely deserted, but about as active as you'd expect it to be at 3am on a Sunday morning. All restaurants, most non-grocery shops, and some London Underground stations are closed too. Once a week we all lean out of our windows at 8pm and applaud NHS workers, though I don't know how many actual NHS workers ever hear that. One of my colleagues is keeping track of the stats. According to him, 173,000 people in the UK have been tested for coronavirus, 20% of them turned out to have it, and 10% of those have died. So if you're in the UK you currently have roughly a 0.3% chance of getting it, and a 0.03% chance of dying from it. That sounds like small odds, but that's only because we're limiting the spread. If it has a 10% mortality rate in the best case, then 6 million people in the UK could die from it. So yeah, I'm staying indoors for the time being. Given that I don't go out much generally, it hasn't made a great deal of difference in that sense, so I'm not finding it particularly difficult. How about choo?
