Andrea Moore commented on our Peterborough City Council coronavirus update
to wonder about whether the guidelines are effectively reaching those who don't have English as their first language. We're going to be following up on this for a story, so look out for that a little bit later.
Tricia Keane shared the way that other countries on the continent are implementing their lockdowns as news broke that Queensgate was closing
with only Marks and Spencer and Boots allowed to remain open. Can we see those shops starting a system like this one - only letting a few customers in at a time to stop crowding in the stores? What about the risk of allowing people to queue outside?
With new figures showing six confirmed cases of coronavirus in Peterborough
, the conversation in our post quickly highlighted the fact that not everyone displaying symptoms is being tested. We hope Karl Mackie, who shared that he was isolating after experiencing symptoms, gets better very soon!
A few people were worried about Eddy the Bear
spreading less cheer and more coronavirus, especially as it looked like he was about to get hugging in the supplied picture. Have no fear - Eddy was strictly adhering to the rules. Smiles, waves and dancing (part of the daily exercise allowance) only.
