whilst sorting out my cupboards, to see what is fit to eat and what isn't, I found this in the tea section.

https://www.thefoodmarket.com/products/organic-turmeric-superfood-latte-powder-drink-sachets-7-x-1g

I thought wtf is this?   The ingredients are listed as tumeric.  You can literally buy 7 grams of tumeric for a fiver.  Ten pound bog roll man missed a trick.

I hope my missus got it as a freebie...

An interesting viewpoint that goes against the flow:

I think it’s acknowledged that he was being contrarian to promote discussion.

Presumably if a lion walked into his front room, he'll wait for some strong evidence it was hungry before making his exit?

First dog dies of virus second case confirmed...

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8134865/Second-dog-tests-positive-coronavirus-Hong-Kong.html

From what I'm reading a dog died that happened to have the virus. It doesn't say that the virus was the direct cause.

"The AFCD said the dog's owner wasn't willing to allow an autopsy to determine the cause of death but some have suggested the stress of quarantine and the separation from its owner may have contributed."

It had the virus and was understandably quarantined. It was a 17 year old Pomeranian, these have an average lifespan of 12 to 16 years.

Looks like something to be taken seriously but certainly not worry about until more research has been carried out.

I think that's the case with a great number of the human fatalities too, they had the virus but did not necessarily die from it. Doubtless C-19 contributes to their demise, but does not necessarily cause it.  I suspect they all go down in the stats a C-19 deaths though.

Definitely agree with this.

"94 year old becomes latest victim of Covid19" isn't the scariest headline you'll ever read.

It's possibly the final straw but 'being 94' was probably more of a contributory factor.

That may well be the case for one 94 year old, but I'd still take the overs on the real number of Covid19 deaths.

What are employee rights regarding home office and travelling to work in a pandemic? The government is saying don't make unnecessary travel.

My employer hasn't made any real effort to facilitate WFH for staff. The boss says we are a key service (we aren't)

I'm fairly certain a P45 is coming for a lot of staff regardless but am I in breach of contract (typical off the shelf contract) If I were to say I can't come into work on the tube to Central London?
