...here in Spain. This from El Pais:

The Government will limit the movement of citizens to the maximum to stop the spread of the coronavirus. All of Spain is formally closed with the development of the decree of the state of alarm. In the draft of the text, which Cadena SER advanced and to which EL PAÍS has had access, the limitations of movements are very clear: Citizens "may only circulate on public use roads to carry out the following activities: a) acquisition of food, pharmaceuticals and basic necessities. b) Assistance to health centers. c) Travel to the workplace to carry out their work, professional or business provision. d) Return to the place of habitual residence. e) Assistance and care for the elderly, minors, dependents, people with disabilities or especially vulnerable people. f) Displacement to financial entities. g) Due to force majeure or need. h) Any other activity of an analogous nature duly justified ”. That is, basically no one can move except to go to work, go home, or search for food and medicine. For several days there were rumors that the Government would close Madrid, now all of Spain is closed, although the decision comes with the late weekend, when thousands of Madrid residents, ignoring the Executive's recommendations, have moved to rest areas. All these limitations will be effective as of 8:00 a.m. on March 16, 2020. Basically no one can move except to go to work, go home, or look for food and medicine.

Be interesting to see how it will be enforced. Caught walking home from the shops with a new pair of socks and summarily shot on sight, perhaps?
And you thought the Inquisition was tough!
If you're from Catalan, NJ.
Er …. walking the dog, sort of essential if you have no garden? Fresh air?
here are, allegedly, the UK plans

//It is understood to include banning mass gatherings, allowing the police to detain suspected virus victims and forcing schools to stay open.//
^^^ I was wondering about dog-walking too, Jourdain2. I suppose that it wouldn't present much of a risk to anyone (either to the dogwalker or to anyone else) if it was carried out when the streets were quiet e.g. in the early hours of the morning), and the dogwalkers limited their social contact with each other, but it's not clear as to how 'officialdom' will view it.

My friend lives in northern Italy and goes out every evening to feed a colony of about two dozen feral cats some distance away from her home. She's had to fill in a form to cover her movements but she's still permitted to do so. (Registered cat colonies have legal protection in Italy though, so it would be hard for the authorities to prevent someone from feeding them. The situation might be different in other countries though).
France has gone on Lockdown also. One of the many measures is restricting large gatherings of people. The populace don't think the government are doing enough so what do they do ? Take to the streets in large numbers to protest.
Logique Francais. You couldn't make it up.
Hmmm.

The alarmist Daily Wail's report seems to be somewhat in conflict with the BBC News report that says some scientists are critical of the UK Governments 'laissez-faire attitude':

I love the French -they are pretty direct. 'La logique?' well, it is to them. I learnt many years ago that they simply don't think like us, bless them. It's a big reason why (i.m.o.) we don't belong in the E.U..
^^ As Balou said, too true Boo-boo!
Buenchico, I note that Chris Whitty is 53 and Patrick Vallance 59. I wonder how septuagenarians will take to being told by these young whippersnappers to stay inside for a few months "for their own good".

I may have to dye my hair.
