Denmark, Netherlands, Norway and Malta all going Shutdown in one way or another.

Governments that care about their community not just the business ‘community‘.

It's just as well they do care for the business community given the massive tax take from the City as I've heard this might get pricey.

Press conference at 430pm for Boris to tell us to wash out hands harder and for longer. The rest of Europe shutdown and we'll do sod all (but have clean hands)
Pretty much bang on. Although you forgot the don't go on a cruise advice :lol:

This medical advisor is hoping to delay the peak until later in the summer, so they're going for the 'get it, recover and have immunity' stage

Has it been established that getting it and recovering confers immunity?

The idea of going on one of those cruises fills me with dread bit like a floating care home, I'm not ready for that yet if ever

Unbelievable. Keep washing hands and don't go on a cruise if you're unwell.

This will cost Boris big time within a fortnight

I heard an ' expert ' being asked that very question this morning -

Well , the question asked was ' Can you catch Coronavirus twice ? ' .

He answered ' Well , you can certainly catch it once ' . :D

What do you want him to do? What's in it for the government if this goes pear-shaped?? They are clearly acting upon expert advice.

'Something must be done' is a very dangerous phrase!

it mutates relatively rapidly apparently, so it's unlikely.

I'm confused personally. I get they are following 'The Science' but how is our 'science' so different to other developed countries. Are we the only ones getting this right? I hope so but I cannot see it.
