Got a notification this morning that I had been in contact with somebody who has tested positive, and that I should open the app for more information.

Opening the app takes me to the standard homepage and has no information at all. No idea if it was a mistake, no idea when/where the contact took place as I've hardly left the house this weekend and no idea of the steps I should take next.

World-beating.

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.

This happened to me also. The hypochondria kicked in sharpish.

With Cineworld closing up until next Spring, our grand exalted leader has now come out told us all that we should go to the cinema, presumably in the early evening before the virus breaks loose at 10:01pm

”Work from home if you can, stay at home if you can...but go to the cinema, and definitely go to the pub, but you can’t hug your mum“

Is everyone still following the advice properly? I keep seeing and hearing people who are making their own rules as they find it safer than the gov rules. It is such a shower of shit and with no end in sight.

The problem is that the PHE developers picked an old file format to do this - known as XLS.

As a consequence, each template could handle only about 65,000 rows of data rather than the one million-plus rows that Excel is actually capable of.

And since each test result created several rows of data, in practice it meant that each template was limited to about 1,400 cases. When that total was reached, further cases were simply left off.[/quote]

That would largely depend on how you define "making their own rules up". I, and I like to think a few other sane-thinking people, social distance as much as possible and avoid any unnecessary contact with other people. Just because Johnson, or whoever else has the talking stick on a particular day, says it's ok to go to the pub or the cinema or congregate in groups of six random people doesn't mean it's compulsory to do so. Sure it's not perfect and I'd much prefer to be doing normal things but I'm more than happy to make short-term sacrifices for the greater good. Johnson has got some brass neck blaming the public for being "complacent about transmission" over summer, when his government made the moronic decision to send kids back to school, students back to university and hungry diners out to half-price pubs and restaurants all over a small window of time, rather than a gradual, phased easing to see how much transmission spiked.

I'd genuinely be interested at what the PHE developers have to say about this.  No one "picks" XLS as their file format in 2020.
