    CR, do you have any kids you love and are concerned about?

    WHO recommendation is to Test, Test and Test to try and find out more about this unknown virus, who has it, passed on and hopefully come through it and therefore may have developed antibodies which could help develop a "jab".

    As an update his cousin (consultant in Neville Hall Hospital Abergavenny) has been treating people who are worse than my son i.e. requiring oxygen for past month in a special suit. She is now being tested for Covid-19 so as you will appreciate my family are a little concerned!

    We all have family BP and are all worried. I also have family members who we think have had it

    Mass testing would really help the govt with information.

    If he is I'll enough to need assistance, of course ask for help
    But if he hasn't mildly he shouldn't , and in that scenario i don't think it makes much difference right now know if he has had it or not.

    People who don't need medical help should follow the guidance and not phone 111, repy on online information
    The NHS have other things to focus on right now

    People who are worried they might have coronavirus symptoms but don’t require medical help or hospitalisation are being told not to call the NHS 111 helpline.

    That was the advice offered to the public by prime minister Boris Johnson and a team of medical experts following an emergency Cobra meeting on Thursday 13 March.

    “I urge people who think in view of what we’re saying about their potential symptoms that they should stay at home, not to call 111, but to use the internet for information if they can,” Johnson said

    you'll see excercise has been removed form the summarised list.

    Follow the links in that text etc and you'll then find its still included.

    There seems to be no easy way to confirm scenarios... again the van as an example because clarified advice is if you cannot WFH you can go to work van man is now back working on the van -and he will have finished by Sunday when he neds it off his premises and he isnt insured to drive it of course. But we cant travel to collect it as it that doesnt fall under the remit for travel of course. Except his business reason is that it isnt on his property. (For the avoidance of doubt my take is we cannot go and get it. He disagrees. Wife disagrees.)

    Ring your insurance, they might agree a reasonable cost to make the insurance comprehensive for a day, so that he can drive it and deliver the van back to you

    Also as a mechanic, does he not have some insurance that allows him to drive a customer car in the course of the repair job?

    in usa, the car is insured not the driver.

    I found this out when I wrecked a car on a test drive.

    Most surprising is that in ENG, there are mechanics that can get automotive work done and actually tell when it will be done. In Ohio, I'm usually given a window in # of days, and the # is usually exceeded.

    Test drives are a special case. At a car dealer in the UK the car dealer insures cars for test driving

    If you are buying a car from an individual , you may well have a problem .. oray not

    The seller may have an any driver policy on the car , which may or may not include test drives
    The buyer may have an any car policy.. bit this wil lnormally only be enough to make him legal (ie 3rd party) and wouldn't include simply crashing the car into a wall

    he isnt a mechanic. he fits pop tops/roofs. there would not normally i guess be a reason for him to take a client's van onto the public highway
