What really matters statistically, when other real life issues are not sorted? Statistics should have stopped the bubble in 2006-7 then, which it didn´t, same goes for climatic change! UK is taking another approach with a built health immune society to reduce the risk of infection.
A action is more efficient then a reaction. Right now there´s not enough mask for medical personell, or civilians. Civilians are using mask that are not protective, they are only preventive for the user to not spread the infection. The protective mask (type) are limited even to govermental personell (police etc.). You can leave your home for shopping food, go to work, or buy medical supplys etc, BUT most pharamcies (none in my town) have mask to sell, and if they did, I wonder what type they would have. So it makes no freaking sense to be able to go out for supplys but be exposed because you can´t buy a mask (a proper one).
In Spain if you have been detected as a positive host, you are then permited to be in sick-leave from your job and the goverment will pay 80% of you´re wage while you´re on sick-leave. This is the usual when sick in Spain, but I ask myself, what about other countrys? How are small business going to deal with a shut-down of a minimum of 15 days? What happens to those who live day-by-day, in other words make it barely to the end of the month, without being able to save a penny?
There´s money to rescue banks, but none for mask and supplys?
Italy asked for help to the EU when the outbreak, no one offered help, they then looked at China which did help. After this issue, the EU has changed it´s posture and has rectified it´s initial decision of not giving help due to the mass criticism they recieved from the rest of the EU countrys. What´s the use of being in the EU then?
Don´t know but I think these things are more important to deal with right now, and that´s were goverments should be firm.
What a BIG mess! Meanwhile, some will loose there loved one´s.
