I usually order a regular beer I know of or if I am experimenting I'll just chance it. Doing that that only gone terribly wrong once.

Besides this weekend it's just a safe-standard beer situation.

Just when you think things might start to improve.

A new strain of flu that has the potential to become pandemic has been identified in China by scientists.
It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.
The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak.
They say it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans - and needs close monitoring.

...
The virus, which the researchers call G4 EA H1N1, can grow and multiply in the cells that line the human airways.
They found evidence of recent infection starting in people who worked in abattoirs and the swine industry in China.
The immune systems of Pigs and Humans are similar. That is why viruses can quickly make the jump from pigs to humans.

There's a lot of Asian people live in Leicester, so that may have some bearing. They are more suseptible to Covid-19 and, as was discussed previously, their living arrangements and social/religeous gatherings might contribute to easier transmission of the virus.

Did Dominic Cummings stop there for a toilet break on his travels to and from Durham, perhaps?

No but the mayor broke lock down,so i suppose everyone else would have been able to break lockdown following his example
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-53048566

Sir Peter Soulsby admitted visiting Lesley Summerland and staying at her house overnight before government guidelines allowed it.

The Sun on Sunday published pictures of the former Leicester South MP fitting a window to Ms Summerland's home.

Sir Peter said "far more influential people" had flouted the lockdown rules.

At the beginning of lockdown, England's deputy chief medical officer warned against partners living in separate households meeting up.

But Dominic Cummings DIDN'T meet up with others.

Except all the people at Downing Street, when he went back to work after running from Downing Street when his wife rang him - as was reported at the time...
Quote:
27 March: Mr Cummings is seen leaving 10 Downing Street. "I suddenly got a call from my wife who was looking after our four-year-old child. She told me she suddenly felt badly ill." He went home, but after a couple of hours his wife felt better and he returned to work.

That Evening: Mr Cummings went on to explain - "That evening I returned home and discussed the situation with my wife. She was ill. She might have Covid although she did not have a cough or a fever." Mr Cummings said many people he worked closely with, including the PM, had had symptoms or were absent with symptoms. He said: "I thought there was a distinct probability that I had already caught the disease."

If you order a Corona lager, you might find people give you a wide enough berth at the bar to enable you to keep to the social distancing rules.

As your quote says, "his wife felt better and he returned to work.". All the fuss WASN'T about that. The fuss all happened, BEFORE that explanation. So all completely irrelevant.
