  5. Global pandemic requires a global unified response. Nature too has many different departments of which disease, weather and meteorites form but three. Each of these departments has many subcategories any one of which has the potential of ending us. COVID 19 is only a sub of a sub of a sub category! While we have been bickering amongst ourselves about nationalism, borders, partisanship, democracy, resource distribution, best form of governance for East, West, North and South and enacting war and peace based on our geographic territories we have neglected since for ever to formulate a human response to the only threat that really can harm us all as a species. We have been bickering and posturing and clashing like a couple of gazelles for dominance while the lion is within earshot. This must surely be because we have believed that nature will never really, really harm us! Based on blind luck, we have made it thus far and now this global pandemic has slapped us in the face [We have been slapped by this category before!]. This mild slap is devastating to us and our response is too little and too late. Even if we completely eradicate this particular virus's effect on our territory, through any and all measures, without finding a vaccine or a cure, it will only be a matter of a short time before it starts again as it will be wittingly or unwittingly bought to our shores again from across our waters either by a traveller or traded goods and we have to start the entire process all over again. Even if a vaccine or a cure could be miraculously found and distributed throughout the UK tomorrow, what is to stop COVID 20, then 21, then 22 or any other virus from the vast repertoire of nature to devastate us the day after or in our future?
    Here is our stark choice in the imaginary scenario where we are actually given one.. Acknowledge all threats posed to us by nature and finally from a central global office to co-ordinate our global response to it which supersedes all national measures and authority, or as Trump and his cronies would have it get back to our usual under our current world order as quickly as possible and just suck it up and blow the consequences of this or any other virus or anything else that nature can throw at us! Since our default human position and condition is the latter, and since in this world we do not actually have any choice, prepare for loss on a scale that pre December 2019 we had not even imagined. Too little, too late. Wishful thinking is useless, news of loss is useless, procurement of ventilators is useless, PPE is useless, flattening the "curve" is useless and current world response to what is actually happening is USELESS. A solitary ant is no match against an elephant so how many are a match? Whatever that number and it has to be vast, they best be unified to have a hope to achieve a single purpose of bringing it down. So that we are clear, UNIFY to have a slim chance, no ifs or buts and no get out clause and while being forced to achieve what seems impossible [Global Unity under One Government, Law and Currency] prepare for unprecedented number of death. BREXIT? You must be having a laugh!

  6. He didnt care because theres already a vaccine etc. i arent scared of this shit so stop trying to make me live in fear

  7. Prince Charles is isolating at Balmoral with Covid 19 and Prince Andrew is isolating at Windsor with Jennifer 14 😊

  8. BBC is fake news and this is information warfare designed to cripple our economy when we need it most, once we have left the EU, I think the virus is bullshit I don't trust any large centralised organisations especiallly not the BBC, information must be verifiable.

  9. It seems to be one law for them and another for us. Why were they not practicing what they preached – keeping a safe distance from one another?

  10. You BBC people are clowns. What's with the action movie narrator and the Hollywood tragedy music track? Get serious. Get real for once.

  11. Boris is not ill this is a lie he didn't cough once during the press conference, this news is there to keep people in the house

  12. If P.M ND health minister get CORONA' then how will be the country safe !??! 😁😂It is a matter of thinking I pray for safe 🇮🇳from india, world country don't care about their people but only care about their economy!!!

  13. It'll be a stunt. A ruse in order to trick Britain back to normalcy. A week or two and the three stooges will reappear as right as ninepence claiming Herd Immunity really works.

  14. UK remember our history or leader have always fought on the front line. To all our MP and PM keep strong, we stand by you like you have stood by us.

  15. Bollocks, its a publicity stunt, they think we are all stupid!!!

    Lying cunts all of em, when one dies I may change my mind

  16. bojo crimminally incompetent, at handleing this crisis, the woprst PM ever
    he is a enterteiner and not a leader, and should resign

  17. "Supposed to be protecting the rest of us"

    I remember when this was just the flu… Some pensioners may die… Everything else is just an overreaction.

    Now the moron cultists who bought that earlier line they peddled have become pandemic deniers.

    We now have pandemic deniers.


    Johnson should have stopped the renewal of car road tax for 6 months to help the people pay the exact costs of bills and heating electricity foods for families .
