@"Food should of been rationed" No - the gov keep saying there is plenty The gov need to be using the military to accelerate supply chains to get food to supermarkets faster so that we can stock up, then self isolate and avoid going to supermarkets at all for a few weeks To do that we need to buy MORE than normal, not less!

When's the testing coming? Everyone having to go to work needs to be tested as soon as is possible if it's possible- otherwise we could lose the 'front line', and these people are in many cases doing their vital jobs without that protection and reassurance. We haven't protected all the achilles heels yet, social distancing gets undermined by need to go to supermarket/job etc without wider testing.

Elsewhere a test takes less than an hr, here it takes days, and it isn't even available to all NHS staff yet, so many of them with mild symptoms are forced to isolate for weeks.
