From 18th January W8 and W9 buses will be terminating at and starting from a new bus stop adjacent to the new Chase Farm hospital building. The timetables for both routes will remain unaltered.

The change has been welcomed by the London Assembly Member for Enfield and Haringey, Joanne McCartney AM:

“With the new bus stop being situated directly outside the hospital’s main entrance, it will make life a lot easier for patients and passengers who use local bus services to visit Chase Farm Hospital.

“I hope this planned change will also encourage residents to leave their cars at home, improving air quality around the hospital site.

“This comes alongside the new 456 route proposed to run to North Middlesex University Hospital, which I have long campaigned for, so I am pleased that TfL are taking such comprehensive action to improve bus links to our local hospitals in Enfield.”

Note: This report has been amended to show the correct date for when the new bus stop comes into use - 18th January, not 11th January.

Health charities urge people to use Covid-19 Symptom Tracker app

The country's most important medical colleges and charities working in the health field have joined forces to urge people - and especially those in the most at-risk groups - to start using the Covid-19 Symptom Tracker app to provide researchers with vitally important data which will be used to fight the coronavirus. The over-70s and those who have pre existing health conditions appear to be most at risk from the effects of COVID-19, yet they are significantly under-represented in the group of people currently providing data through the app. However, early analysis shows that the illness may start with different symptoms in these groups, such as diarrhoea and confusion, rather than the classic cough and fever.

Help fight Covid - join this huge citizen science programme

More than two and a half million users of the Covid-19 Symptom Tracker app are participating in the world's largest citizen science programme and helping researchers discover more about the virus, how it spreads, how to treat it and how to eliminate it. What they have discovered so far shows that the lockdowns in the UK has been effective in reducing the number of people who have symptomatic Covid-19. At its peak on 2nd April, epidemiologists working alongside machine learning scientists predicted that over two million people aged between 20 and 69 fell into this category, but since then the incidence has been falling steadily, down to around 460,000.

The UK's approach to the coronavirus questioned

The UK government's approach to the coronavirus outbreak raises some important questions. As well as the many issues mentioned in a video by Dr Tony O'Sullivan, we have to ask ourselves why the government's criteria for easing the current restrictions differ so much from those specified by the World Health Organisation.
