Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

ONS report from a few days ago has them believing we're currently around r0 of 1 if I'm reading it right (basically saying same number of cases week on week).

Makes re-opening stuff further next week not look too smart. Though I guess we've got another week of cases to see if it holds.
