I want to see anti-body testing stations rather than these monstrosities.
That means testing everyone.. The government won't give the council funds to do that.

Gives them a great excuse to carry on with these restrictions though.

Whatever it takes, and the cost, well look at how much we owe already.

The ONLY way to get this under real control is to test EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE UK.

We're being reactive instead of proactive, so we're going to forever fight a losing battle.

Lock the whole country down for 3 weeks, test every living soul in this country, isolate those if positive for 3 weeks from the moment they test positive..

Get the track and trace running correctly and properly after the 3 weeks lockdown is over..

I'd bet the cases will fall and we'd near enough eradicate it.

And before anyone says it's not possible, new Zealand proved it is, you've just got to take a hit for 3 weeks to make it possible.

We're more than happy to spend 500 billion on bailing the banks out, but they won't spend any to give ourselves a chance to get back to a proper normal where you save people's lives and mental state.

Lets be honest, this government have made a complete pigs ear of this situation.

New Zealand has got control of it but is isolated in a way no country should be like.
Once it opens up then they are going to get it bad until they get herd immunity.
If they are locked down until a vaccine comes then their economy will disappear.
But we will take all their lamb again after Brexit is complete on the 31st December ;)

Maybe if we all followed their lead, we'd get it under control?

We can stop it dead again if we want and it would take 2 weeks of a hard lockdown.
Then what?
We still have to come out of our bunker to face it again.
