Although adults around the world have been forced to start working from home amidst the novel coronavirus outbreaks, a global poll of 2,250 office workers suggests that many of them are actually much happier working from home.

Not only that, 77% believe working from home is one of the most effective ways to help the environment.

The survey, conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with GoTo by LogMeIn, aimed to uncover how office workers feel about working from home and their environmental impact. The poll included 1,000 U.S. office workers, 250 office workers in India, the UK, Brazil, and Germany, 125 office workers in Australia and 125 office workers in New Zealand.

With a whopping 84% of respondents worrying about their environmental impact, over 75% of respondents say their commute to work is something they feel guilty about when it comes to the daily impact it has on the environment.

Wow. A “whopping” 2,250 surveyed! I’ve got more bottles of nail varnish than that whopping number.

I know a few mums working from home and trying to home school different age youngsters that are finding it very hard....I think they now realise that going out to work is a doddle in comparison. Razz

Having said that, in the present climate they are finding it the lesser of two evils, at least they and their kids are safe.

Not so Syl...


Twice as many people in UK die each year from accidents at home than in road accidents...


About 100 children under 10 die every year in UK from accidents at home...


Compare that to how many UK children under 10 have died from covid19...!?


Between 2006 and 2007 eight people died in the UK from wasp, hornet and bee stings.


Falls involving chairs caused more than 2,000 deaths between 1999 and 2010...




Now... remind me again... how many children under 10 in UK have died from covid19...???

Tommy, I take it you think the government is over-egging the pudding in regards to Coronavirus?

Do you think it would have been as low a number if we hadn't locked down?

The lockdown has slowed the spread and undoubtedly saved lives. But of course, you can't cite a "saved lives" stat.

Do you not think that if children were mixing freely, the virus would most likely mutate into a version that is deadlier to children?

Based on what evidence globally?

We know the virus has mutated numerous times and still the number of fatalities in children is extremely low

Do you not see Ben, how you are creating a fear not based on the science.

Your fear is based off a belief of something unlikely to happen

yeah all that may well be true, but it doesnt stop the orrible little virus factories spreading it around to parents and others...It may not do kids in general a great amount of harm.....but it doesnt mean that they dont get it, nor that having it (quite likely asymptomatically) they wont give it free and gratis to anyone and everyone around them......

The point is that if we were a pair of virologists discussing this viral strain, say, last spring, we'd be saying that it poses zero risk to human beings in that it has no mechanism to infect people.

Lo and behold, a few months later, we'd find ourselves investigating how, in the meat markets of China, close animal-to-human contact enabled the virus to mutate into a strain that infects people.

It has since mutated into 30 strains.

Do you really doubt that under the right circumstances, this virus could mutate yet again into something that is deadly to children?

Because if you don't see that possibility -- which, if kids were mixing freely in schools, turns into a probability -- then it's you not listening to the scientists, not me.

Everything I'm saying is logical and based on what scientists have said about the virus.

Everything I'm saying is logical and based on what scientists have said about the virus.

1) I think 99% of virologists would disagree with you. That is you saying this and its highly unlikely that a virologists would say this being as many have actually predicted such an outcome and that such pandemics happen every hundred years or so

2? So your next points are based off a false premise from the first point

3) Its mutated 30 times and throughout countries globally. We have the same age brackets that are at more risk and the same underling health issues at risk. The very same maths that shows that some underling health issues are at greater risk than others. The very same age brackets at greater risk than others. After 30 mutations

4) So if there was a shred of evidence for your claim. Which there is zero science. Being as this is a type of coronavirus, of which there is many other types by the way. We would at least see some form of scientific data to back you up in other forms of this. Yet there is nothing to back your fear based paranoia

5) Its the scientists that are stating to bring kids back to school in many countries in a controlled and measured method

6) So yes I do doubt that the virus would mutate in such a way to become overnight and more lethal to children than those over 65. Being as their lungs are still developing. Being as the lung cells of children are regenerated and growing at a vastly at a faster rate than in those of adults

7) Its more likely this more than anything is why children are less fatal to this virus

Hence you are not talking science but in the realms of paranoid bullshit mate

No... I think the govt have prepared for the worst and hoped for the best, and all based on scientific advice based on what has been known at each point...


But... The worst fears have not come anywhere near to the reality of what's happened... Plus it is only now being realised that this virus has been going round the UK since before Christmas... And that so many millions of us have most likely already had it and are absolutely fine!


I think many of the media talking heads have whipped themselves up into a frenzy about it all, almost foaming at the mouth while talking about it on the TV from their homes in front of their laptops with their bookcases in the backgrounds...
