I agree, if we responded quickly, the deaths and infections would be lower. I believe that the death and infection numbers are higher than what the media report tbh

It has been abysmal. The government was slow to respond and when they did, they responded with ineptitude.

I can only that what has happened in care homes becomes a national scandal.

People have died because of the abject failures of the Conservative government.

Perfectly adequate. The NHS was never overwhelmed and that was the goal. It’s easy to criticise every little detail in hindsight, but no one knew what they were doing at the start, especially the useless WHO.

The WHO keep on saying that the virus is gonna be around forever which I find a little bit scary.
And they declared covid-19 a pandemic before the worse of it started

They declared in a pandemic on (correct me if I’m wrong) the 23rd March. That’s way after it had spread to nearly every country in the world. On January 12th the WHO said that there is no human to human transmission of Covid19, despite Taiwan giving them hard evidence of it in December, even before China decided to tell the WHO about it. They also advised against travel bans from China, which would have no doubt had a massive effect back in January. They then went back on their word in march saying travel bans were a good idea. It’s a shambles of an organisation.

Of course the virus is going to be around forever, all viruses are even if you vaccinate the majority of the population. It’s very rare for a particular virus to be able to be wiped out.

What makes you say that, out of interest?

viruses are notoriously hard little buggers to stamp out but the more we learn the less apocalyptic this virus comes across as.

Labour would do a better job because they are more proactive with their decisions and they would get things done more quickly if that makes sense?
