I'd say I can't believe the UK is literally mandating the most rapid possible spread to as many British civilians as they can, but I do believe it, because the UK has so thoroughly devalued it's people in recent decades.

I deeply pity the British. Their national government has by all appearances declared war on them, and they're about to be slaughtered with a bioweapon in droves. If only the people had retained the wherewithal to control their government, they might be able preserve their lives and culture in the face of the attack of their overlords.

I'm deeply saddened atm.

Thanks!

I could not believe it honestly, that they decided to stop testing completely - this coming a few days after that massive game they had, with massive crowds, in Liverpool - but now the new strategy seems to be: "do nothing" and wait for herd immunity - meanwhile, new studies on other coronavirus, show that immunity only lasts months - meaning, you probably can get it again, or at least another strain - its really sad, like you said, and I feel sorry for the UK people. This is just evidence that their government, just does not care at all.

I honestly felt like we (my family) overreacted by self-isolating early on (about 2 weeks ago). My wife is pregnant and I'm worried about her since other coronavirus strains are known to target pregnant women. The thing that's upsetting is that it still seems like most people aren't worried about this at all and are probably spreading the virus as we speak. There aren't enough tests to go around here in my state and officials just simply aren't attempting to track cases as diligently as I think they should be. I'm nearly certain that many cases have already slipped past them and that we maybe have hundreds or thousands in my county alone. Nobody was contacted at the hotel that a man from out of town stayed at who later tested positive, and he was symptomatic. They've done the same with another case because the person was asymptomatic when they were out in public. In a third early case a man came back from Italy, was symptomatic before he left there, went to a restaurant and was out and about in public for about a week before they found out he had it. Then they only tested his wife. They seem to have no idea how contagious this disease is, or they just want to seem like they're doing something even though they know they can't. Unbelievable how poorly this is being managed here. I don't feel like we overreacted now, and I'm sure many people will wish they had in a week or so.

Here in new Zealand, its being reported - that the same thing happened, in regards to someone infected going to a public place - that person was from Australia, who had flu symptoms - he was tested in Australia, then got on a plane flew to new Zealand before his tests came back for Covid19 - now reports are saying he visited a public cafe in Wellington. It is really the fact you cannot trust a certain percentage of people - the government did not even close the cafe, it was the owners of the cafe who decided to close it - because the government here said it was a low chance he infected people. The way this is handled, really does show the complete failure of true action to track and trace at least in my opinion. Regarding people not taking it seriously - I 400% agree with that. People still held a major music festival in new Zealand a few days ago - thousands of people went, without a care, as to if they could get infected or even infected others - not a care in the world - and in the united states which I have been tracking, we all know how spring break went and St Patrick's day etc.,

The argument as I see it is Do Nothing vs Do Nothing.

Either do nothing to stop the virus spread, or stay at home and do nothing for as long as the law expert says so. Either way, your chances of survival are at risk.

yeah, and I see a lot of articles coming out in other places outside - the uk - which say they agree now with the idea of herd immunity. They seem to be trying to prime for the "we can't do anything so we wont do anything" which is the most, inhumane thing I have ever heard. Just let people die. At least if they had the sand to say it. But they just cloud that is newspeak - meanwhile, all the 20 year olds, think they are invincible and are having parties everywhere and forming massive crowds. I wish it was a movie, at least there would be some control going on.
