So a third of Transport For London TFL employees have decided that this national emergency is a good time to ‘throw a sicky’, stay at home yet still get paid. The paying public were already fed up to the back teeth with these overpaid striking skivers, now they’ve finally gone too far. TfL MUST now introduce driverless trains with all haste, any industrial action must be confronted and dealt with.
And Sadiq Khan blames the commuters trying to get to work

London mayor Sadiq Khan said passenger numbers fell by a third on Wednesday morning but more needs to be done.

On Tuesday, pictures emerged showing carriages packed with commuters.

The Underground network has been hugely reduced by Transport for London (TfL) with 40 stations shut and many services cut back.

"Nearly a third of TfL's staff are now off sick or self-isolating - including train drivers and crucial control centre staff.

"Many of them have years of safety-critical training in order to run specific lines - so it is simply not possible to replace them with others.

"If the number of TfL staff off sick or self-isolating continues to rise - as we sadly expect it will - we will have no choice but to reduce services further."

I wonder if they didn’t get full pay that there would be as many off.
1/3 of staff off is a absolute disgrace. Glad the NHS staff have more morals than this lot of wasters

Just imagine if all our services had been brought back into government control, sorry union control, country would be ruined by now. 1/3 of every business would be on the sick on full pay

Just little recap China keep starting all this s**t 3 times now
The 2002–2004 SARS outbreak was an epidemic involving severe acute respiratory ... information to Chinese outside Guangdong province, where the disease is believed to have originated.
2011 -2012 In a mutated strain of highly pathogenic bird flu appeared, H5N1, which is concerning because the existing poultry vaccines are not very effective against the H5N1 strain. In 2013, a new strain, H7N9, appeared in China; other strains are rare.
2019 On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) China office heard the first reports of a previously-unknown virus behind a number of pneumonia cases in Wuhan, a city in Eastern China with a population of over 11 million.
What started as an epidemic mainly limited to China has now become a truly global pandemic. There have now been over 392,331 confirmed cases and 17,156 deaths, according the John Hopkins University Covid-19 dashboard, which collates information from national and international health authorities. The disease has been detected in more 196 countries and territories, with Italy, the US and Spain experiencing the most widespread outbreaks outside of China. In the UK, there have been 6,650 confirmed cases and 335 deaths as of March 23.
Time they were Held to Account.

Not wishing to speculate or add to rumours, but how long before they heard the first reports were people contracting this?
And if months before could it be connected to the coughs quite a few people have reported as having here in the UK late Nov/Dec?
