How the seismic noise on our little @raspishake seismometer running in West London (Twickenham) has been affected by the #covid19UK lockdown. This is a month of data for station R091F. The average noise levels are down reflecting fewer trains, buses and cars.
@DrRosena @WHO Having recovered a week ago, I’m going by the @WHO guidelines and will undergo another week of self isolation to make absolutely sure I don’t infect anyone else. The discrepancy with @CMO_England advice here is appalling.
Both the US and the UK made a tragic strategic error of thinking there was a trade off between rising #COVID19 fatalities and the economic cost of lockdown. Delay was the worst of both worlds: steep curve of infections, even worse economic consequences

There are lots of things on hold right now. But one day - let's be sure to reckon with how immoral rags like the Telegraph and Mail used this global crisis as a vehicle for their nationalistic, Europhobic propaganda. They have neither decency nor shame. Just poison and hatred.
This is from tomorrow’s Mail on Sunday. “Could this be the ultimate revenge for Brexit?“ it begins. “This” being the suggestion that Barnier infected Johnson — i.e. it’s the EU’s fault — that #Covid_19 came to No. 10. That’s it: no more bottom to scrape. Utterly despicable.
Ever doubted whether post-truth populism was *really* such a fundamental danger to society?
Just listen to the horoscopic babbling of Trump - then ask yourself: how much more damage are these narcissists capable of inflicting without a care or remorse?

Matt Hancock agrees the UK entered this pandemic unprepared. “We did not have the scale” for testing, he says. “We have had to build from a lower base.” This is a huge admission of strategic failure.
The best moment from this week's edition of #bbcqt:
"Secretary of State: promise less, deliver more."
Thank you, Most Rev. Sentamu!

A moment of unity amid the lockdown: from Neath to Belfast to Manchester to London.
People from all corners of the UK come together to #ClapForCarers
At 8pm tonight people across the UK will show their appreciation for those working to help us through this:
Emergency service workers
Supermarket and supply chain staff
Social care teams
EVERY key worker
Good on @MattHancock for finally allowing follow up questions. Makes the whole thing much more worthwhile.
Tory maths strikes again.
Remember the 40 new hospitals that were really 6, and not new, just refurbished?
The 50k nurses that were really 37k nurses?
Hancock's 12k ventilators that were really 8k?
Well now 30 is the new 30,000.
