Re: Coronavirus

I have been limiting exposure to one corner shop and just getting stuff to get by for a week. I certainly wouldnt do several supermarkets nice though it might be. In fact it is less than ideal. Why take the risk?

Re: Coronavirus

I think the point I was making about China closing its border was lost. In simple terms they are coming out of the worst but now stopping anyone coming in.

Therefore I suspect we can see countries closer to home doing the same. In other words closing their borders even to nationals.

Both posts made today so far timed out.

Back and copying works but very cumbersome. Never known any forum time out other than this one.

Re: Spanish Postal Service

It would be very useful if someone can clarify what this actually means please? We are currently sending essential parcels only via Correos. I am waiting for an Amazon delivery which I will then send to OH in Spain via Royal Mail/ Correos. Works well apart from the daily collection at a specified ti...

Re: Coronavirus

Interesting no one commented when members of the Spanish government got the virus. No matter, it is of little import unlike my post on the financial ramifications especially to the Southern EU countries which got scant comment. Hey ho. Did anyone notice the Chinese are closing their borders even for...

Re: Coronavirus

Free healthcare or not, what has gone wrong for Spain to be suffering so much having seen how Italy progressed? This isn’t “a my country is handling the crisis better than yours comment”. I wonder if the various governments have experts modelling and projecting deaths, peaks, cost of actions to GDP ...

Re: Coronavirus

Well lets be cynical. This money suddenly made available isn't money that has been prudently saved but money that has been printed, some of it very imaginatively eg the Italian bonds by the EMF. Sanchez wants Coronavirus bonds but the prudent four arent so keen once again. I dont know in answer to y...

Re: Coronavirus

Has anyone had a look at the aid packages the various countries are promising. ?They are eye watering especially when you consider the misery austerity has rightly or wrongly inflicted for the last ten years.

Re: Cant post

Hi Enrique. Thanks for all your help. Typing fast isn't an issue, it is the thinking. I am finding it very difficult to do any planning/making things happen due to this corona virus thing. The whole world has just been turned upside down. All the worry about will there ever again be any more toilet ...

Re: Coronavirus

Funny how these threads descend into *beep* contests. My government is better than yours comments. Strange how a little country like Italy has had more deaths than China. Strange how Germany has fared very well but is suddenly gripped. You could argue Spain has acted badly as it has had more deaths ...
