  • Evening everyone. I thought that I would jump online quickly and just chicken with

  • everyone really as we all prepare to hunker down for a few weeks.

  • Excuse the casual attire. It can be a messy business putting toddlers to bed

  • so I'm not in my work clothes so forgive me for that.

  • I do just want to prepare everyone that because of the lag with covid-19,

  • the time from someone having contact with someone who has it

  • catching it themselves then being symptomatic and being tested and positive,

  • it's a number of days before all of that happens so we won't see

  • the positive benefits of all of the effort you were about to put in

  • for self isolation for a lot ... for a few days yet. Quite a quite a number of days.

  • I'd say at least 10 days so, don't be disheartened.

  • Our numbers are going to go up and the modelling I've seen suggests

  • that they will go up quite considerably.

  • We'll see quite a steep rise.

  • In fact I'm expecting we may see several thousand cases

  • over a period of time until we then will start to, we hope,

  • see the effects of what we're doing with self isolation having a positive impact.

  • So don't be disheartened when you see that.

  • Don't be disheartened when you see that ongoing increase

  • because of that lag, all of the efforts that we're putting in should eventually show

  • if we all follow the rules.

  • Til then, do check in on your neighbours, do especially chicken on those

  • who may be elderly.

  • Give them a call see what their needs are and if you can help them,

  • go out and grab their essentials and pop them on the front door for them.

  • I'm just remembering the way we can keep them safe is by keeping our distance.

  • Remember, stay at home, break the chain and you'll save lives and it's as simple as that.

  • That's everyone's job for the next four months.

Evening everyone. I thought that I would jump online quickly and just chicken with
