Surely it's better to ensure the disease isn't capable of being transmitted, then there would be no need for track and trace.

Unfortunately people will be wilful, there are millions of people who totally refuse to wear masks or follow guidelines, 'The Beast' from the chase has told people to ignore a second lockdown, not the only public figure to do so.

I wonder how long it will be before people start referencing Sweden who took a different approach with a resulting different outcome in arguments about the 2nd lockdown - maybe they already are, I am not too active in the forums that these people hang out  Confused

Would have probably been different here if we hadn't had a 'Bloke' in charge, PMQ's are a rare treat, Sir Keir Starmer asks a long involved sensible question, the bloke jumps up and shouts 'IRA sympathiser', Rishi Sunak, who looks brilliant against the rest of the cabinet, not much better, asked a question about Furlough, replies, I intend to remove the triple lock from pensions, freeze public sector pay and benefits , give low income families 500,doesn't say if it's a one off, weekly, or monthly, suffice to say, people are confused.

Want to argue otherwise ?  Fancy yourself as an expert ?  Yup - some approaches may not provide much benefit but unless they are likely to make matters worse,  until there is near perfect knowledge,  you are simply gambling with the safety of others or even yourself.   Or do you just feel lucky ?



The reactions to corona virus plus the social, economic, political, psychological effects were always going to be the bigger danger. Given that the whole shooting match in this country has been entrusted to someone with the abilities of a demented orangutan I would say when it's all over the cure is probably going to be much worse than the disease.

If it were as simple as imposing restrictions and hoping the virus would disappear then fair enough but the restrictions need to prompt the question: "have much damage are they causing"?
