Another potential for an increase.... The Government is suggesting that couples should live together to avoid changing households.

Especially loved the advice that they could then "exercise together"

Ooooooer Missus!

Heard on the news this morning about that.
The question was about non-cohabiting couples.

The advice was ........... "move in, or cool it".

Malaysia’s Karex Bhd, which produces one-fifth of condoms globally, had to close its three factories because of the lockdown enforced by the Malaysian government.

Over this period, the company would usually make 100 million condoms.

The factories reopened on Friday after being exempted from the restrictions, but are only operating at half capacity.

Thread resurrection alert

An expert reports that no significant change in the number of babies is expected, although in crisis there are often fewer babies, so no change could be 'more' actually

Surely that's far fewer than one would expect in any period of a few days?

The figure is wholly inaccurate.Quarantine is a ninth of a year suggesting 792 couples,out of a billion population get a divorce.We have that many annually in Barnsley.
