There are some questions that are not being covered on this. The one I am interested in is:
Let's assume that the virus spreads among the population, as seems most likely. Once you have had the infection, which seems to be relatively mild for most people (less dangerous than influenza, by all accounts), is that it? Are you now immune or will the virus mutate year by year so that you can catch a different strain every year?

Good question. There was an expert on Sky News earlier that made some good points. He might have known

The EU have devised contingencies and set aside 200 million for measures. Italy now has some communities in lockdown.

I am thinking better quarantine ( isolation if you like) will help. How can four Brits passed as OK now have the virus for example?

Get your masks and alcohol based hand cleanser now.  Gloves might be an idea too.Might be some money to be made on shares too as markets tumble.

F1 drivers apart, one of the reasons I read why you shouldn't do it is because you risk giving the driver behind contra-indications by driving with your left foot slightly touching the brake pedal, thus putting your brake lights on. I don't expect that anyone on here would do that, I'm talking about mere mortals.



lots of drivers already move their right foot onto the brake pedal enough to illuminate the lights, but not the brakes. The driver behind then has no indication when they actually begin to brake. This is particularly common when turning left: lift off, touch the brake pedal, indicate(sometimes), 3m later turn in, then stomp the pedal to the floor when they finally spot the other traffic in the turning.
That, at least, is an indication that you intend to slow down. Brake lights while travelling along with traffic would give the wrong indication.

all of which makes them an All Or Nothing proposition.
I don't expect to live long enough to see it.

I absolutely agree with you - both on general principles and as someone whose worked in IT for far longer than I care to remember. Computers are only any good at dealing with other computers, humans in the mix always causes problems.

Of course computers also tend to be programmed by humans. That also causes problems ;D

... I'll ask him what the situation regarding the automatic test is when I see him next.
He'll say the world will end if you use both feet  ::) ::) ;)
Have you caught the rolling eye smiley virus from Al?  ;D

He definitely won't say that, as it is obviously incorrect. He may say it's frowned upon or even a fail. He may say it's perfectly fine, we'll see.

Extend that logic a bit and you'd be suggesting that everyone who drives a manual car must go through clutches every few thousand miles because they're always lightly touching the clutch, causing it to slip..

..that said, I've known a few women who habitually drove in six-inch heels who did exactly that, for exactly that reason..

When I worked for the council we had a lot of guys who used to cycle in to work , clock in and then have a leisurely shower , get changed and then start work , that soon stopped when management twigged just how much time was being lost , when people had to shower and change in their own time , the cycling seemed to drop off a bit  ;D
