Saturday 18th April

Another cold, damp day.  The Government admitts there is a real shortage of gown for PPE, Un says there is currently no anti-body test and no certainty that those who are infected will be immune to re-infection either immediately or after a year or so. This all makes planning for the future and the re-opening of the economy very uncertain.

At last got through to Barbara on Whatsapp for 45mins.  From her Kalk Bay home in Cape Town she has stunning views and is cared for by her daughter who lives near by and seems well.  She knows lifr in the African townships is appalling.

Then had a long conversation with old political friend Nick Harvey who I photographed and supported in North Devon.  Discussed my idea for a Pandemic and Climate Emergency Service.  (see paper under Politics)
