I must admit to having discounted the virus far too much, but part of that was because I thought the governments would have more testing capacity, etc, after what we saw in China.
I understand London is about to go into martial law on Friday or Saturday. Went to the shop this evening, all I could buy was hearts of romaine lettuce and prosecco. It's getting mental out there. Our grocery delivery website is just down for the time being, but I have preemptively been putting in orders every few days to keep us going.
The plan at the moment is definitely lets bunker down until we have a vaccine. I am hoping we can do more of a V than a U pattern, but who knows anymore. We, in the UK, need more tests, more ventilators, and more money. Glad to see the BoE will be buying more commercial paper, but we need to just start sending out checks to everyone ASAP, imo. I'm still optimistic about under 100,000 deaths, but this is definitely the weirdest shit of our lives.
I want to go to my local for one last pint tomorrow, and probably will, because I'm nuts, but Jesus.
