    Why would they tell you exactly where, This would just add to the mass panic and stupidity that’s already out there. Makes no difference exactly where it is as long as you follow the same hygiene rules and keep washing your hands

    For privacy and patients’ safety they would not tell us that Cheryl groom.

    @ Bradley . So you’re thinking that washing hands protects against cough droplets within 5 meters from infected person? Is this what Boris told you? You don’t need to worry as long as you sing happy birthday twice and god save a queen for extra protection.

    Washing hands?
    This is a bloody virus that attacks your lungs! Everyone need to wear a mask and keep distance from others

    @Scorpious – Washing your hands doesn’t guarantee total protection, that’s correct; but not washing hands guarantees you zero protection, either to you or to the vulnerable people you may come into contact with. This pandemic won’t go away easily, but if we’re all a bit mindful and more conscious of where we put our fingers, we stand a fighting chance of not overloading a health service that may, to some, be the difference between life and death.
