If someone has it and doesn't get tested, their family just get on with work and normal stuff, nothing will stop it spreading will it?
Perhaps they should fine people if they have symptoms and fail to get tested.
Does your neighbour usually cough, Tess? If so he could have a lung condition, do you talk to each other? I'd ask him. Maybe he's a smoker too? If he doesn't cough usually, then I'd still ask him.

Not good ones anyway .
Spain has been doing it for months now .
There you have to wear a mask as soon as you set foot out of the door

If you canít you just canít enter shops Iím afraid .
Itís as simple as that .
Over here in shops staff do not see their job as policemen/women. I'm sure that in places like Spain and Italy we have seen pictures of armed police at the door turning people away if they do not have a mask and then inside asking them to socially distance. Of course over there the police also wear masks so do not appear to be hypocrites.

Over here BJ and co are expecting shops to police civilians. Nuts!

I'd avoid him. They really should have a system where people can report people with symptoms.

From past experience people with lung conditions rarely cough non stop. They usually have medication to stop that. They may be set off into a paroxysm due to a trigger. Just my take on it as I have extensive experience with chronic coughs. The covid cough is different. It cannot be suppressed.

Re: Coronavirus: PM postpones lockdown easing in England

A milestone that I missed:

The total number of "recorded" cases has, again, exceeded 300,000, now totalling 303,952.

Figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on Friday suggest infection rates in England are rising, with around 4,200 new infections a day - compared with 3,200 a week ago.

That's not good news .....

No he doesn't usually. I'd ask him if I could see him, there's a huge fence in the way, thank goodness. They sit outside a lot when at home and I can hear when they have visitors, usually little ones shouting and playing.
I'll ask 'er nextdoor, she knows everything.
