Latest News in London – Lockdown Life
In the UK lockdown is in full effect which means that majority of us have to stay at home or risk being fined, this rule has been in effect a few weeks ago now, at this point we’re in line with those in France, Italy and some other countries, here in England restaurant and bars were ordered to close on Friday 20th March, and several companies and businesses have closed their doors, and instead operate online only, with their staff members,working at home for 12 weeks, to stop the Coronavirus from spreading further, this rule will apply in the US soon also.
NHS Staff, Emergency, Frontline Staff + Some Key Workers
Lockdown Life doesn’t apply to some Key Workers because their skills are valuable during this Coronavirus crisis, as I explained last week Clap For our Carers. we applauded the NHS Staff who are bravely and tirelessly caring for the sick, ill and Coronavirus victims, I participated by clapping and cheering alongside our neighbours as we all paid our respects once again this week, I know now that this will be a regular Thursday at 8pm occurrence for at least 12 weeks until further notice.
NHS Nightingale Hospital At London ExCel Centre
NHS Nightingale Hospital has been built temporarily to treat patients who have the Coronavirus, it has enough space to hold 4000 patients, it’s located at London ExCel centre in East London, it’s the first of many popup hospitals that will be opening soon.
Schools Are Closed To Most Pupils In The UK
Pupils are home schooled at this point and they could return in September, with the exception of vulnerable and disabled children who need to be stimulated and cared for, so they will have access to nurseries, schools and childminders, also children whose parents are Key Worker, NHS / Frontline staff and they have no alternatives.
Food Parcels For The Elderly And Vulnerable
Food parcels are offered to the elderly and those who are classed as vulnerable with respiratory problems, Cancer etc.. although it’s reported that some people have not accepted the emergency food supplies majority have, the NHS identified that almost 1.5 million people could be at risk from infection, and at least 900,000 people have received supportive letters advising them how to stay safe throughout lockdown.
Those that are registered as vulnerable through the government list are given priority for home deliveries from the main groceries stores like: Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose, Iceland and Morrisons etc.. Rightfully so because it’s important that they remain in the safety of their homes, receiving a home delivery for groceries for the rest of us is a hit and miss timing thing, although we are all on lockdown we can leave the house for essentials if necessary being fit and healthy, in London, local shops and groceries are everywhere you turn, but thankfully we have everything all stocked up at this point for the 12 week duration.
The rules states that to remain safe is to stay indoors, then thats what we are all doing in the UK.
