    For those that FB , one of many videos https://www.facebook.com/helen.dane1...6874149582984/

I am semi-retired but with 35 years learning disability nursing experience I could easily step in and work in local LD or other care homes that are crying out for help, I even have an up to date enhanced DBS, but because I have type 2 diabetes and a history of asthma I don't want to without knowing for certain that I have been infected but was asymptomatic, so now can be presumed to be immune. We desperately need a reliable antibody test.
    My wife earlier this week did 10 antibody tests (which should indicate whether you have had the disease) of which 2 came back as neither positive or negative. OK, it's a small sample, but that's at least a 20% failure rate because it's anybody's guess as to whether the other 8 were valid results. These were supposedly reliable tests. Rubbish.

    Yes it seems rubbish, but a 'neither positive nor negative' result suggests to me (as a total non-expert) there was a problem with the samples rather than with the test.

    I see there's a suggestion that the exit strategy for lockdown might be by age and geography. I'm guessing age ascending, not descending.

    "Scientific adviser Prof Neil Ferguson, who was asked about coming out of lockdown, said it would likely "be targeted by age, by geography". (For Noggin......)

    We've just got 2 more weeks. We were expecting it, but they can't officially announce it until the previous lockdown comes to an end.

    State of emergency extended

    Yesterday evening Parliament approved the continuation of the state of emergency in Spain until April 26.
    Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez stated that he will have to ask MPs to grant further extensions after this to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
    The government has indicated that conditions after April 26 may be different to the current lockdown, which is one of the strictest in Europe.
    However, this will depend on the success of measures to get the virus under control.
    At the beginning of the marathon debate, Sr Sánchez said the government was working on a 'transition plan' to take Spain out of total lockdown so the country could move towards a 'new normality'.
    He said the transition would be progressive and carried out with great caution.
    Experts in different fields are examining how this can be done.
    Their plan will be adapted to the evolution of the coronavirus in Spain and the rest of the world.
    A complete return to normal life will only be possible when an effective vaccine is available, noted Sr Sánchez.

    Q for Savio - up there ^^ somewhere you said that you wear a mask when you're out. Is it a "proper" one? - as I had thought that the simple ones weren't an effective barrier?
