Maybe the government might take things a bit more serious now.

If nothing else it should concentrate the politicians minds a bit.

blacklabrador Maybe.

She must have been in contact with a few ministers and senior civil servants.

Do you think that they will self isolate or just not give a monkey's?

After all, they are still allowing flights in from Italy where over 630 have died already.

TheChimp It really will be a test of whether they will practice what they preach.

And if they don't, why should anybody else feel the need.

How the hell did they go from, like, 60 cases to 300? They don't seem to have any control and are making estimates on how many are infected.

PhilipMarc Who knows how many are already infected.

It's all going to kick off in the next 3 weeks where there will be a sharp increase in cases.

The last I heard was that only around 30 thousand people have been tested. We're in a country of 63 million odd, so who knows what's going on.

My relatives chuckled at the idea of wearing masks, but I left for all of them if they'll need to wear it.

I wore it while on the airport, plane and metro. TheChimp

PhilipMarc they have said the masks are useless as a protection, but I suppose they are handy for not projecting your coughs and sneezes too far.

And estimates not apply to UK, because London alone is like a small country itself.
