Coronavirus Megathread: UK goes into full lockdownWatch
Dont know how it started but some person started buying up all the toilet rolls and hygiene products. (probably to resell) When people went into shops they saw that there was nothing so they panicked. They started buying up all the stock because they were worried they werent going to get any of the items.
That has caused nearly everythinf to clear out. So people are going to their local shops and they have started raising the prices of everything too. I saw a large toilet roll going for £25 and hand sanitiser for £8.
Its ridiculous. How are older and poor people going to cope. I dont think the people have a lot of faith in the gov for this to be occuring. the fear is in alot of ppl. Its crazy.
Further disregard of Human Rights.
When this is all done, and we've lost 3-4% of the innocent developed world population. China must be dealt with and swiftly. This government can't be trusted, to do anything but cover ups and gloating. China needs to be removed from all non essential economic production via targeted sanction, if they refuse to change the ways their citizens consume food. If they get 10 samples of any kind of foreign novel or known viral agent, they need to have a legally monitored agency that requires reporting to the WHO, US government, NATO, Russia. People who can check their power. Finally, If 10 case's are confirmed China must shut it's airports instantly. It cannot be allowed to export us diseases and reap economic gain by producing our goods without clear rules.
Shame we aren't one of them.
I like the goverments plan to keep over 70s at home... its great. Do it today. Shame they are saying 'in the coming weeks' - the 's' is the biggest problem there. Fine to give them a bit of notice.. but weekS. Don't they see how fast this is developing? We are roughly a week behind france who are now shutting everything down.
Its just frustraiting.. because we all know its coming, but they are resisting every chance at being proactive and acting before **** hits the fan.. instead they are just waiting to be forced into it.
Also - block travel from america.. They have already done it to us, and they are a far bigger risk than we are. They have more cases, but have barely started testing people.. less than a third of the tests that we have done by some accounts. Korea have already shown how hugely effective mass testing is - other nations need to learn from it.
It's just selfish.
