There are drills you could do that aren't rolling around with people. I know karate schools that have opened up, because they can still do kata, whereas judo and jiu-jitsu classes aren't able to open yet because you can't teach it without that level of extreme physical contact.

A lot of BJJ schools are doing online zoom classes, its not the same as drilling/rolling with someone, but better than nothing.

Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

I'll eventually work through all the messages but I'm safe. Thanks folks. I'm still an absolute mess but safe all the same.

In wrestling, you could still have people bumping, running the ropes, and various exercises, without ever having to lock up with another person. I'd still question the value of it all, though.

Obviously, it's potentially of far more value to the school than the students.

But you've still got multiple sweaty people sharing the ropes, ring, mat, benches, toilets, kitchen, etc.

Of course, you would need to be really on top of cleaning/disinfecting everything, managing numbers, and so on, to such an extent that it wouldn't really make any of it worthwhile.

How's everyone doing with going out now lockdown has 'eased'?

I must admit I haven't been anywhere at all. Probably more through nerves than anything.

What's the new world looking at? Did you feel comfortable?

I'm going out when I need to, but it turns out that's not a great deal right now. When I do, I'm cautious but by no means terrified of the world. Turns out I'm saving a fair bit of money and unnecessary calories by not going out much so I'm fine with it.

I went to Homebase a few weeks ago and with the outdoor queueing for half an hour and the lack of this common sense the government keep talking about, I'm not in any rush to return to normal. Maybe when I'm working again I'll feel different. I'm certainly not in any rush to go to ASDA or a pub any time soon. I don't feel like I need to and I'm one less person for others to avoid.

I went to Aldi the other day and it was a absolute shambles, I have been going since lockdown started and it has always been well policed and people were by and large sensible. 

People chatting inches from one another, people reaching past each other for what they wanted to buy. I had to tell one pisshead to fuck off away from me. He was stood at my shoulder stinking of whiskey at 11 in the morning. 

We are a truly a shameful nation.

People have lost any sense of good social etiquette. I nipped into my local Aldi the other day before lunch for a second bottle of whiskey and some scrote started shouting to get away from him.

The death rate is usually after the infection rate. People don't die immediately - it takes time. So our death rate was also low when the spike happened. That's not likely to be the whole story, but probably a factor.

Possible I guess their spike started on 23rd of last month with 5k a day and has increased day on day. 
 

The stats from here show at our worst day there where 6000. 
 

So in theory the death toll will be catastrophic if they follow the same path 

Edit. Our worst day was 8k odd

Nobody is opening up a wrestling school next week to go through bumps and running the ropes, come on now.

If we have learned anything over the last few months then the reason to open will be to nonce the students.
