    Digby got a reaction from Nigel Bridgman-Elliot in Covid 19 / Coronavirus   
    Saw a few camper vans, foreign plated cars with luggage racks about Shetland yesterday. The Highlands and Islands seem to getting people moving out of the cities to get away from the Virus.(Orkney still has no cases this morning). Surly must be as daft as taking the Cruise liner into the town. Virus ICU for Shetland going to be done in Aberdeen.(In Italy no ICU if you are over 60) This is the way it spread through Italy and Spain. It spread like wildfire. Lockdown must be coming. Shetland has very limited medical facilities, it can not cope with extra numbers.

    CMV Magellan with 1100 passenger and 900 crew are coming into Lerwick tomorrow morning.Passengers will be bused about Shetland in buses that Shetland folk will be using after. They have cancelled DUHA and SMUHA for the safety of the people in Shetland. It has been proved that this virus can be passed on days before any signs show. LPA will simply say they followed guidelines. In one stroke LPA are undoing the common sense of the last 2 days. This ship should be turned away like the one in Malta.

    That's another 2 confirmed cases in Shetland. Schools might be closed shortly. Its funny folk say its just the Flu. This virus is killing 5 % of infected people in Italy.  The WHO said today that it is 10 times worse then Flu. Germany's Merkel says she is expecting 70 % of the population to be infected.  I can not understand why the UK government have not done more with shutdowns of Schools etc. You can see what's happening all over the World. No passenger checks on flights back from Italy today. Think SMUHA and DUHA will be the least of our worries in a couple weeks. I do wonder if the Government knows little can be done. Watching Liverpool play to a full house when the other games in Europe are playing behind closed doors. Suppose it will save the UK Government paying Pensions.

    It was only the Kings land in Shetland that was pawned. Most of Shetland was owned by the Udallers at this time. This gave them more rights as the people in Scotland . Shetland was to keep its laws and customs until they were returned to Norway/Denmark.

    Hi, I've been hearin some depressin stories aboot da recent arrival o some travellers fae sooth. Noo  you canna maybe believe aa da stories but if even half o it is true den dir bad news for Shetland, I ken some o da stories I'm heard are true cos dir been first hand info. Arrogance towards good hard workin folk, no payin for amenities, bein very forward an no takin NO for an answer an stealing, now dis is whit I'm been hearin, maybe no true, but if it is den lets try an get clear o dem afore dey tak advantage o even mair folk. Shetland should be a place whar you can leave yur hoose unlocked or da keys in your car an no hae tae worry dat folk might pinch your possesions, I mind when I wis peerie an it's no dat lang ago dat da hoose wis never locked even in da toon.
