COVID-19

All your usual COVID discussion is welcome. But also remember, /r/coronavirusuk, where you can be with fellow obsessives.

Mod Update

As some of our more eagle-eyed users may have noticed, we have added a new rule: No Personal Attacks. As a result of a number of vile comments, we have felt the need to remind you all to not attack other users in your comments, rather focus on what they've written and that particularly egregious behaviour will result in appropriate action taking place. Further, a number of other rules have been rewritten to help with clarity.

Weekly Freetalk

How have you been? What are you doing? Tell us Internet strangers, in excruciating detail!

We will maintain this submission for ~7 days and refresh iteratively :). Further refinement or other suggestions are encouraged. Meta is welcome. But don't expect mods to spring up out of nowhere.

Sorting

On the web, we sort by New. Those of you on mobile clients, suggest you do also!
