Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

Been following the threads about tuition impacts; just wondering why no one is talking about mums and dads working with their kids at home. Use assessment books, TYS, YouTube and focus on core work. F@@k piano, chess et al! It’s the school work that’s important, and surely you lot can do that yourse...

Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

It’s looking grave here in England. We are on the verge of a mandatory lockdown, as at the weekend a lot of the population nonchalantly ignored governmental advice and engaged in normal everyday activities at malls, supermarkets, pubs, parks and beaches - in huge numbers with no physical distancing....

Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

Earlier in this thread there are some forummers that critized some of us for being concerned about covid-19 as they said it is just a flu. This video explains clearly why we should be concerned. The video used US numbers but it applies to all countries in the world. https://youtu.be/gTxuo0gH_ho Thi...

Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

Europeans lassie faire attitudes is really unlike gangjiong Asians. Also, Italy really hv more vulnerable elderlies.

Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

Here in England GCSEs and A Level exams this summer have been cancelled led, and will be replaced by a mechanism that aggregates mock results, test results and estimated grades. It impacts those in Y11 (age 15-16), and Y13 (age 17-18). It’s a terrible system open to subjectivity and abuse. My childr...

Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

GB schools close today. Transport services resort to minimal services on Monday. Great Britain will hanker down to address Covid-19 (CV). Think we have been spooked by Italy; statisticians have extrapolated the hospital numbers from over there and reached the conclusion our NHS will be swamped - and...

Re: Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Updates

Schools shutdown, here in the UK, on Friday. TBH, I agreed with the idea of restricting over 60s to the home, keeping kids at school and going for the herd immunity plan. Seems like our PM Boris Johnson is kowtowing to his critics, or adapting to new data/science trends. I hope it’s the latter. Herd...
