Question from Cdzzmc Jnr: Have there been any cases in space? Is the ISS the only place in the world where there is absolutely no coronavirus?
Which of course leads to the question, is a space station part of the world?
And then: will the return to Earth of the astronauts currently up there be delayed in case they catch it back here? And what steps will they take to make sure the next crew, and everything they take with the, are absolutely 100% virus-free?

The CoronaVirus isn’t everywhere. A number of  island nations are currently virus free. So no, ISS isn’t the only place currently free of it.

My bike shop is suddenly very busy, with people dragging in their rusty heaps of bikes which have sat untouched in their garages for several years, and asking for them to be serviced so that they can go out for a bike ride, whilst social distancing themselves.

It’s also a way of saving money as money will get increasingly tight for many.  A bike is a cheap way of getting around.

Based on an advisory video I just watched called “the walking dead” (I feel “coping with corona” would be a more upbeat title) the main things seems to be possessing firearms, preferably automatic ones.

I know this one:  The astronauts spend a couple of weeks in quarantine, undergoing plenty of Tedious Medical Tests before launch, because nobody wants them getting sick (of anything) in space.

There will be plenty of places on earth that won't have any coronavirus, because they're inhospitable to the animals that carry it.

I suspect you'll get different answers depending on whether you ask passport control, the tax man, or the people responsible for shooting at interlopers in their nation's airspace.  I believe the general consensus is that orbiting objects aren't 'in' the country they're flying over at the time.

That's more or less what I said to him. The ascending astronauts and everything they take them with them will tested and then quarantined for 14 days (or whatever the time is).

I think more importantly, have there been any cases in Germany's Big Brother?

Instead of having to have inane 'chats' with other dog emptiers in the park, we now wave as we pass at a safe distance.

I claimed a £180 refund on the season ticket I no longer need the other day. If this goes on long enough, I might be able to afford to buy a new bike.

Possible delaying of Brexit - if it happens after 01.04.2021 I can get dual British/German citizenship.

The church bells here chime every 15 min, but we're usually too far away to hear them unless the wind is right.

With any luck this summers 2 week tennis fest will be cancelled. Don't get me wrong I've nothing against tennis as such, if people want to get together in private and play tennis I'm cool with that. I'm just not interested myself and don't see why it should be the lead item in every news bulletin. Even football doesn't get that kind of concentrated coverage.

Let's hope the Olympics get the chop as well.
