So what's new?Viruses grow at an exponential rate until they are unable to grow further. As such I can just about guarantee that tomorrow more people will die from Corona than today. In fact around 600,000 people die each year in the UK. At present not more than 20,000 will die from the virus and likely less. Of these people most will likely have died without any virus infection in the next 6 months.
The “cure” as prescribed by the media and our timid politicians is causing the collapse of the economy and will lead in the next couple of months to several million being made unemployed. Ultimately more people may end up losing their lives in various ways from the cure than from the virus.
My mind is screaming that we have an idiocracy in all positions of power. People who cannot rise above a mantra that each life lost is a tragedy and must be prevented. The country clearly needs another 10,000 ventilators so get them made, testing of the first batch can be done in the field if necessary. Get the young people back to work and provide proper shelter for the old and vulnerable who need it. Without these actions the cure is many times worse than the virus.
Have you considered that no government, not even an authoritarian Chinese communist one, could afford to sit back and do nothing if they wished to ever be elected again?
