Bluddy hell Nate, hoping you make out OK.
Just for jvan
UK: tested positive: 29,474, recovered: 135, fatalities: 2,352
Increased grumbling and pressure from the press about lack of PPE and testing, altho both are increasing. It's just the demand is large. The press is also saying seems like government is "dragging its feet" about the antibodies test but they (the government) are saying they want to make absolutely sure it works 100%, false results will be much worse than no tests at all. For example Madrid ordered half a million (?) or something, test kits from China but they're useless so had to send them back.
In the UK lots of people doing extraordinary things to help the effort, just a couple of examples, The Mint (where our money is printed and coinage stamped) have started a production line to make face masks (which seems out of context), which they designed in literally a couple of days, also, the Mercedes Formula 1 team came up with breather apparatus control valves that hospitals can use, I gather it's based on the protective breathing equipment that a racing driver has in case of a fire in the car.
Today, government showed concern over increased private motor vehicle traffic during the last 2 days, saying still need to keep the squeeze on, no non-essential journeys.
