Has anyone tried the McPlant Burger, I've managed to try most of the vegan or vegetable options at the likes of Burger King and KFC but the McPlant has eluded me.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

It will be interesting if antiviral drugs like Paxlovid and Lagevrio will have an impact on both transmission and cases once they're rolled out. Paxlovid in particular is very promising although I suspect it'll be targeted at people who are elderly or at risk.

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

London Reconnections did a good article on TfL invoking section 114 last spring - it's worth a reread now: https://www.londonreconnections.com/2020/tfl-the-impossible-finances-of-fighting-a-pandemic/ Things would have to get pretty dire for TFL to get that far and TBH it would be very embarrassing ...
