After she has hugged her grandad, he has the virus on his face

A young woman greets her grandad with a warm hug – she has green goo around her mouth that represents the virus.

After they embrace the older man says he’ll be back in a minute and she makes him a cup of tea.

She touches the cupboards, cup, teabag and tap – leaving green slime everywhere and spreading the virus all over his home.

As the kettle boils the young woman scrolls through her phone – which has videos of her on a night out with her friends and posing for the camera.

The grandad returns, saying “lovely cup of tea”, with the green substance now around his mouth.

The powerful film is designed to ensure people stick to social distancing guidelines as cases rise.

However it was too much for some people, with one person writing: “This ad breeds divisiveness, blame, resentment and all the aspects of a negative emotional response.

“It’s ghastly and makes me even more determined to debate against these Covid bedwetters.”

The strong message goes along the same angle as Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s plea to young people to “don’t kill your gran”.

‘DON’T KILL YOUR GRAN’

Yesterday Scotland recorded the biggest ever rise in coronavirus cases as 486 people tested positive in 24 hours.

Nicola Sturgeon said the country was at its “tipping point” as more measures have had to come in to slow the spread of the killer bug.

The First Minister said it is highest single day rise since in Scotland since the beginning of the pandemic.

Scotland is carrying out about 10 times more tests every day than it was during the height of the pandemic in April, Ms Sturgeon said.

On Tuesday, Scotland took the measures a step further and introduced a ban on households mixing indoors.

Social gatherings of more than six people indoors and outdoors are banned in England – under the so-called rule of six. They

Why black dots on kitchen tiles means something sinister

Warmer months in Australia can only mean one thing … spiders. And if you have noticed random tiny blobs appearing in your house around this time of year, it turns out there’s a perfectly logical explanation.

One woman desperate for answers about the sinister black dots on her kitchen tiles turned to the internet for help stating at first she thought nothing of them.

But when more popped up, she took to a popular Facebook group asking for advice.

“Does anyone have any idea what these marks could be?” she asked members of the UK group, Mrs Hinch’s Cleaning Tips, alongside a photo.

There was one overwhelming response from many claiming it was spider poo (yes spider poo). But were the claims true?

Ecologist and University of Sydney professor Dieter Hochuli has confirmed to news.com.au the black dots are in fact spider droppings.

“Spider and fly droppings look similar – and those small blobs are liquid nitrogen-rich poo,” Prof Hochuli told news.com.au

“To be honest, I have seem them around my house too.”

He said the dots are common in Australian households around this time, given warmer weather is approaching, but it’s nothing to worry about.

“There is no public health risk about them,” Prof Hochuli said, adding “we live surrounded by hundreds of spiders in our day-to-day lives”.

Online, the reaction to the dots was huge after the original poster said she had noticed the dots appearing in “random little patches” around her home.

“This morning this was on the top of the pc we have in the kitchen,” she wrote alongside a photo of her tiles.

Many were quick to respond that the splotches were spider droppings, but “wash off with no effort”.

“Defo spider poo got on door due to light outside,” one member of the group wrote.

“Look above and you will probably see a web/spider,” another suggested.

However, not everyone agreed, with others saying the black dots were perhaps from flies.

“Definitely fly poop!” one person wrote.

“It happens a lot this time of year, spiders pooing everywhere, Dettox spray is good for it,” another declared.

Last September, another woman shared pictures of a similar cluster of black dots that too appeared on her skirting boards and walls.

Prof Hochuli said people often mistake the droppings for coffee grounds, particularly if they’re on kitchen benches.

But if you look in the corners, you will most likely spot a spider hiding in nooks and crannies.

To get rid of the spider poop just use a stock standard sponge and wipe it clean.
