We’re currently the 10th country in the world in terms of the number of cases across each nation, yet here we are doing nothing but singing happy birthday twice. It’s such a joke and countries will hundreds of cases less than us have imposed way more extreme measures. Yes yes I know about herd immunity, but it sounds like a disaster waiting to happen to me and exposes the elderly even further.

Are you taking personal responsibility and self isolating?

What we shouldn't do is panic. You sound like you are panicing. Shutting everything down simply delays the outbreak to resume at the point we come out of hiding. Most of us are going to get this virus. The question is how do we achieve this without putting too much stress on the NHS?

What do you suggest?

Not yet, but I’m starting to get a dry cough so I think I need to.

We can start by nuking the wet markets in China and holding the corrupt CCP accountable for allowing these vile businesses to operate, all because of money.

Everything is because of stupid money, even the government’s response.

Exactly. So criticising our politicans who are frankly making decisions about something that has caught us all on the hop isn't going to help anyone is it?

Dude that's hard when you have assessment deadlines coming up, presentations, seminars, exams. As of yet nothing has been confirmed what will happen in most schools/universities. they're waiting for government guidance

And that helps absolutely no one. It is that rather childish point of view that is seeing people who fall ill being assalted and victimised.

I’m allowed to have a damn opinion and half the posts I’ve read on here agree with me because the government will end up leaving it too late and we’ll lose our loved ones over the economy.

Completely agree. I have A level exams and I’ve been revising for months, so I don’t want it all to go to waste, but it’s hard to know anything when the government is practically saying “we’ll see”.

What should he do? Close everything and then let it spread once lockdown is lifted? What hes doing is right. Eventually, most of us will get it. Take responsibility and self isolate if you have any new symptoms.

Do whatever China did. See how significantly their cases have dropped, whereas ours are getting worse by the day.

It's not going to help as their gov is authoritarian. UK isnt. People will go about with their day and you cant stop it.

He should do whatever is necessary. Even scientists doubt his plan.

What China did was extreme isolation because they were told to by the government, and it was effective because no one had human contact. Our government isn't telling us much, they won't even close schools let alone put us in isolation, so we can't do what they did unless we're told to.

I beg to differ, if these wet markets especially the ones in China were eradicated for good, many new pandemics would be prevented in the future. Most pandemics throughout history always started in China because of backwards and unhygienic practices like these.

And I don't know what you mean by the rest of your post.
