Dad’s warning as baby son is hospitalised with coronavirus after one Tesco trip

Please listen to his advice…

A dad has issued a warning after his baby son was hospitalised after catching coronavirus from him.

Peter Jones took to social media to tell his story, saying that his one-year-old son ended up in hospital after getting ill from the virus.

According to Peter, he brought the virus home with him after a single trip to Tesco, with three of the family recovering well, but sadly that wasn’t the case for his son.

He wrote on Twitter: “My baby boy is in hospital tonight recovering from an infection following coronavirus. We have been in isolation for 3 weeks, I brought the virus home after a single short visit to Tesco, 3 of us recovered fast our 1 yo was less lucky. Please #StayHomeSaveLives & #ThankYouNHS”.

Peter wanted to share his story as a warning for people not to go out, writing that ‘just one trip out can risk it all’. He added: “Please don’t go out! Stay at home, and protect your loved ones! Please share so others can avoid our experience!”

Luckily his son has now got over the worst of the illness and is recovering at home, and Peter was quick to praise the excellent care the NHS provided.

Peter wrote: “After a short stay in hospital our baby boy has recovered quickly with the help of oxygen and AB’s for the infection. He is now recovering at home. A huge thanks to our GP who reacted so quickly & to all @RDEhospitals who looked after him so well.”

While the majority of the country is taking the government’s self-isolation and social distancing guidelines seriously, some are not.

This was on show over the weekend, with the good weather we experienced seeing parks across the country full of social gatherings and people sunbathing.

And according to a recent survey, more than a quarter of people in the UK are not self-isolating or practicing social distancing.

Morrisons shoppers upset over ‘intimidating’ Union Jack packaging in the supermarket

Thoughts?

Published

Morrisons use of the Union Jack flag on British products has kicked off a debate online.

It was sparked when a shopper posted a picture of the Union Jack branding on the supermarket’s eggs and butter.

Pictures of the products were posted to Twitter, with the customer writing: “Just back from a trip to Morrisons. Is it just me, or have their butter and eggs always been this… patriotic?”

The post sparked a debate and divided opinion in the comments, with some saying they will boycott the items while others argued it was just marking them as being British products.

Someone replied to the tweet to say: “Very upset by porridge I saw in Morrisons. This flagging everything is very unpleasant and quite intimidating.”

A second added: “Retaliate. I’m no longer buying anything packaged as such. Hurt them through their bank accounts.”

While another replied: “Won’t be buying eggs from Morrisons.”

Some people were confused as to why people were so offended by the Union flag being on British products.

One person said: “I can’t believe you all get triggered over the fact it’s showing we have British products in our stores. You should be proud that it’s cut down on air miles and transport costs and in turn is helpful for the environment. No, you’d rather moan about the national flag.”

A second asked: “They also have the French flag on Brie and Camembert cheeses and the Italian flag on a number of meats. Should we remove them as well? Or is it just because it is the British flag?”

A man trying to make a swift getaway from police ended up getting more than he bargained for.

The suspect ended up with a sore head after smashing into a ‘one way’ sign after his concentration slipped.

The 33-year-old male was attempting to give Greater Manchester Police the slip after stealing a £760 Moschino bag in the city centre.

While he was making off from officers he looked behind him and ended up faceplanting straight into the sign.

He was subsequently arrested and taken into custody to recover from a ‘sore head’.

GMP took to Twitter and Facebook yesterday to share the news, saying that ‘all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery’.

GMP City Centre wrote: “One way to custody… A 33yr old male stole a £760 Moschino hand bag. Whilst making off from officers, he looked behind him & then faceplanted straight into a One Way road sign.

“Male now in custody recovering from a sore head, all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery!”

Ouch!

Are you heading out to the shops today?

Today, Monday April 12th, sees stage two of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown come into effect.

As part of this second stage, pubs, bars and restaurants can reopen for outdoor drinking and dining, while places like gyms, salons and hairdressers can also welcome people back.

Non-essential retail can also throw open its doors once again, meaning shops in places like the city centre, Arndale and Trafford Centre can reopen from today.

Huge queues have been forming as people are keen to return to shops after lockdown, with large gatherings of people spotted at the Arndale.

Photos and videos have been posted to social media showing people trying to get in the shopping centre from Market Street, with the Arndale opening at 8am today.

Sean Hansford posted a video to Twitter showing a large group being dispersed from the entrance to the Arndale, with very little social distancing happening.

A security guard asks them to move away and to social distance, but the group initially just congregates nearby.

Later videos show a more orderly queue going down Market Street after Covid marshals managed to organise shoppers, with police also spotted assisting with the queues.

Large queues were also spotted at Primark over at the Trafford Centre, as the popular budget retailer reopened its doors.

Will you be heading out shopping today, or are you waiting until things calm down a bit?
