I think the argument ( or strategy ), employed to help deal with the possible numbers is pretty good. The debate of when measures should have been taken, would depend on your life’s priorities. Health or Wealth. So many were opposed to the closure of schools, then small businesses, putting their own situations above the country’s health as a whole. To those still travelling on London’s tubes. A sad state of times in which we live.
People still think the UK will get away with it…
Should have started this isolation 3 weeks ago minimum. Mandatory, not just asking for it.
The reason being, the virus is being passed from person to person undetectable. The government knew they were not going to test people properly because they did not, and still don’t, have adequate resources in material or manpower - they knew it.
The mere fact that they knew they could not test, should have made their alarm bells ring all around Westminster for days.
How about this, from a Science journal. A report that regarding the infected numbers in Wuhan, states that 86% of infected cases were never reported !! So if you think you know the numbers out there according to the BBC, French websites etc etc, think again.
