Cobra meeting held to discuss plan of action if it comes to the UK (assuming it hasn't already). This is another consequence of globalisation and mass immigration, people with diseases from all over the world travelling all over the world, what could possibly go wrong?

What happened to edit? My post makes bugger all sense and i'd like to tidy it up.


Even without the edit it makes total sense Armo.

The UK is sleepwalking into this and due to the density of population (particularly in the South East) could well be hit harder.

And this advice, if you've been overseas and return with symptoms to self isolate and call 111 needs extended to.... if you've NO symptoms and been out the country...self isolate for 14 days. No messing.

We are just 2/3 weeks behind Italy and they way things are going most of us will get it and some of us will die.


Are well hell as like

Or can you show me an area of this country where we did nothing for two weeks allowing it to be passed unhindered as happened in Northern Italy ?

There isn't really even so much as a real cluster in this country. There is yet to be anyone proven to be a fourth-generation infection and to the best of my knowledge, we are yet to see anyone being isolated against their will.


Yeah, I was told this today (from a source slightly more reliable than a pub landlord with a penchant for fetish clubs). We are mapping exactly like Italy three weeks ago.

We will be in pretty much the same situation as they are now around the end of the month.


No idea how you work that out as it's been made very clear that this country's contingency plans do not include isolating communities as the thinking is the Italians 2 weeks in denial then isolating the communities might have helped to stop it spreading around their country as much as it might have done but they have effectively condemned a large number of people to contracting it in the locked-down areas completely skewing the figures and self-creating the hot spot they have.

So the decision you have to make is, is it better to have a 100k people in a locked-down area who will probably all get it to some extent. Or do you go the way we are doing it by asking anyone across the country who for whatever reason thinks they might be infected to get tested and although the number of confirmed cases jumps each day you could say that that's down to more people getting tested each day.


Good question NS.

Is it better to have a 100k people in a locked-down area or allow it to spread to 66 million people across the UK and rely on them to report the problem when they think they might be infected.

At least the Italians tried (and are still trying) to stop it spreading.

I was on about this to the missus earlier about Italy, with the Italians when you think of it and a lot of other European nations, when they greet each they do it with a kiss to each cheek* so their normal traditional greeting will have the disease spreading like wildfire.

*(and no not arse cheeks either but each to their own)

My mates boss was telling him today that the only reason that on the orders delivered for this week they didn't receive any Corona beer was simply because nobody is buying it!

Seriously, every other beer is unaffected and is selling as normal but nobody is touching the existing stock.

The headline in the Mail Online was a good one the other day.

'500,000 COULD DIE'

I'm pretty sure the Government haven't spelled out the full details of what what will happen during the mitigate phase as we're only just into delay.

I could very well see communities being isolated when clusters are identified but don't think we've seen any clusters yet?

Assuming the infection rate is 80% and 1% die it will be at least 500,000 dead (this is a conservative estimate.

In reality the death rate is 1% of people with no precondition health issues. The fatality rate of closed case is between 6-7%. However most people with mild conditions don't even know they have it.

The real death rate is about 3% and in a few weeks the NHS won't have the capacity to treat those in a serious/critical condition. (11% of active cases in Italy).

Scaremongering a bit there Urban.

Alan had said further up there's no need to worry so I'm sure we'll all be alright.
