Sweden bossing it while Italy and Spain kill thousands, yet the left wing on here, desperate for the illusion of impropriety, are keen to follow Italy into chaos rather than acknowledging the governments efforts to bring the rest of the country together like it's Dunkirk again.

All that really means is we know more about it now than we did a month ago. An typical HCID are ones like Ebola, Lassa Fever & Marburg. === Hmm... yeah but, the likes of Ebloa cannot be spread by particles in the air like COVID-19 can. It requires direct content with bodily fluids. So I'd say COVID-19 is far more infectious than some of those diseases listed

Introduce one way system down aisles in supermarkets to allow social distancing,much easier if all going same way.Of course some are slower then others so use common sense.Anyone not taking Coronavirus serious should look at Italian and Spanish news channels.No need to shop any differently to normal and then shelves would not be stripped clean.Enough for all if panic and greed don't take over.

Keeping construction sites open is another way to kill off the self employed cost risk. Amazing stupidity, to support paymasters, and risk the NHS. No wonder it needs volunteers to support it. It was apparently clear - essentials, essential services, and that's it! Now it's ok to be crammed on the London transport system, so we can blame Khan.

Applauding volunteers is clearly right, but we should be supporting our NHS staff more positively. They have families too, so why should they have to work in sub-standard PPE, and why do we just accept they won't be tested for the virus - this is madness! We should be rioting in support of them! Oh, we can't, because gatherings are banned - maybe part of the plan? Mind you, PPE is on order!
