Ecommerce & Business News

Good News Stories This week...

Well - we were beginning to feel a bit foolish with our prediction about avoiding a lockdown last week but actually the trends do seem to be proving us right.  BoJo's announcement really was just tinkering at the edges and all the figures that matter have now been reducing in a consistent manner that blows away any immediate worry of exponential growth in hospitalisations and deaths.  Let's hope that the general public come to the same conclusion soon too.

So the good news is that people calling 111 have dropped dramatically, the number of people being admitted to hospital is steady and at a very low number.  In Spain and France numbers are steady or dropping too.
