What I don't understand, is why even let it get to stage it is now? From the first reports that came out of Wuhan, the media were talking about how serious this was, why not put the whole world on complete lock down for 2-3 weeks, surely it would have been better, than like some countries are doing now, with thousands infected.

It's just a thought, but i would have thought, that all the boffins in the world would have come out with a better way of combating the spread than they have.

Should the plan have killed 100,000 instead of say 10,000 I would consider that negligent manslaughter by him and his experts, not "nurder".
Using the public for an experiment that the rest of the world would not condone does not sound like good statemanship to me.
You are free to disagree and I am not pushing my view on you, just esxplaining my position on the subject.
Although you do say "the only thing that is acceptable is keeping the death toll as low as possible.".

Not many on here have mentioned treatment, of which there are quite a few showing promise at reducing the symptoms especially remdesivir.
Scientists are even looking at the affect of anti-malarial drugs based on Quinine on inhibiting this virus. Which of course is very cheap.


AH soory, a tipo! Excuse the sarcasm but there is difference between a typo and using completely the wrong word.

You are accusing Bojo of conducting an experiment and you are not alone. My wife tells me there is a vertaible treasure trove of conspracy theorists out on facebook and it's complete nonsense.
Bojo is listening to the experts he believes in and one day he will know if he is right or wrong and will have to face the music accordingly.
Suggesting it is some kind of eugenics experiment is real tin foil hat territory.

Treatment is hardly mentioned because there isn't yet a viable vaccination, as far as I know. As soon as they have one I'm sure it will be all up on here.

This is where social media is a problem, some lunatic comes out with something and before you know it millions of people are reading it and thinking it's true. The original lunatic usually knows it's not at all true but wants the attention or has an agenda of their own and then thousands of feeble minded clowns fall for it.

Bojo is many things, unfaithful, a liar, a chancer but suggesting he's conducting a Nazi like experiment is rabble rousing of the worst kind.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

You misunderstand, the type of treatment I am talking about is with anti-viral drugs that reduce or delay the symptoms as in the new HIV drugs that allow HIV patients to live a fairly normal life now.

They are experimenting with treatments like that though. Didn't France just announce that anti inflammatories could make the patient worse?

Don't mistake a lack of noise around treatment for inaction. I'm sure the medics are working hard on treatments but they won't say very much until they have something worth saying.

I'd suspect most Government plans have a best, worst and medium case scenario. Sounds like some dick has leaked the worst case.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

That may indeed be the worst case scenario. A case of IF the virus mutated maybe?

Professor Karol Sikora.... "Yet others seem to be hardly affected. So far, only about one in 20 of those infected require some sort of medical support, with the rest recovering after a few days."

I hope the media covers this in a responsible manner.

It's not the first time ever you just don't like admitting to it

I think I'll start a conspiracy theory now. What if this virus is a plan, what if it is Mother natures plan to thin out the elderly and very sick? What if Mother nature (go on call her evolution if you like) has decided the human population needs thinning out and this is a virus we have to learn to live with?

What if there never is a cure and we are back in a kind of pre-antibiotic existence where medicine cannot guarantee a cure?

It's as good a theory as the Bojo/eugenics sruff.

For clarity by pre-antibiotic I mean the historical period before AB's. I know AB's don't cure viruses

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

I agree and if only the worst case has been leaked then it's even more despicable and obviously (to myself at least) some sort of political agenda driven action.

If they find out who did this they should face instant dismissal, loss of benefits and if any apply, criminal charges.

People were up in arms about Bojo having a clear out and isn't this why he did it, because he knew there were people he couldn;t trust who would do whatever they could to hurt him.

We knew this anyway. They’ve been saying for a while they’re expecting up to 80% infection, and we can do the maths on what that means.

People have had plenty of opportunity to realise its serious.

All those who have been saying for a while? For me, all those who have been saying for a while, are a bit like alan nixon off twitter, chuck a dart even blindfolded, and eventually it will hit the bull.

My only real concern about all this, is all the boffins in the world, failed to prevent it, and no measures at all put in force to prevent the spread, from the initial outbreak in Wuhan.

Good read that, feeling like a sitting duck here, mainly down to the governments stance on this, obviously I'm no scientist, but sometimes you get alarm bells ringing to say stop that's wrong.

Truth be told none of us know hw this will pan out, but as someone with elderly parents and a child who suffers with asthma I am concerned.

With hindsight, the Chinese in Wuhan could have gripped it sooner instead of having a word in the doctors ear, they and other countries around the world should have pulled up the drawbridge when this was in its infancy and it could have been contained, but the genie is now out of the bottle and to contain and eradicate Covid 19 is a huge task. It may be some countries may have been trying to protect their economies and concealing the extent of the issue, but in reality the huge “lockdowns” will cause massive damage and lots of businesses are going to fold and people will lose their livelihoods.

Things may have been gong on behind the scenes, but our response / preparation for this seems to have been very slow, talk today is about additional ventilators etc, these take time to build and they also need trained staff to operate them, this should have been actioned months ago.

They've gone a bit "Supporter's Trust" at the minute.

They may well be doing the right thing, but they're doing a pretty piss poor job of keeping people informed as to why. Although much like the Supporter's Trust, there's a lot of eejits out there willing them to fail or who wouldn't understand it anyway.

Everything Costello says I have brought up on these pages because I've read about them, why are we not following China's lead on tackling the crisis ?, so far they seem to have done well, we are weeks behind them on the curve so we know what's likely to be coming as regards number of infected people yet we seem to be doing nothing.
Let's hope our lot know what they are doing but so far I have little faith in our ability to tackle the crisis due to our leadership and lack of resources.
