    Never marry someone you meet on CUK...
    I only made that mistake 3 times....

    Especially the one about the woman who made a wooden leg for her husband out of a bucket, some fibre glass, and some wood.

    Apparently the NHS wooden leg makers were busy.

    The lifestyle articles are quite good.

    You should keep it. If you have run out of toilet paper, and you have no DailyWail, it will suffice...

    Sorry, I missed it because I’d already read about it on BBC News, which makes no mention of asthma

    I think more than half the country has underlying health conditions. Overweight being an obvious one... remember standing in passport queue a few month back arriving in Manchester... think there was a US flight before me, a few notability overweight folks in shorts n t-shirts, you get the picture, standing there wheezing waiting to be served. Felt like I was downwind. They're buggered if they get infected.
    The difference is though that being overweight, generally, doesn't kill you. Being grossly obese might, eventually, but not being overweight. On the other hand, about 1400 people in the UK each year die of an asthma attack. Unfortunately asthma (certainly for my generation) is often a bit of a joke, associated with the fat kid at school who wanted to get out of cross country, but it is still a killer.

    Asthma is usually manageable, but add in a cold, flu, chest infection or, in this case Covid-19, and the sufferer could be in trouble.
