I really wouldn'tI'm not interested in personalities, only policies. Responding faster to the outbreak in Wuhan would have placed us in a better position than we're in now, but only those that got hit with SARs last time around seemed to take this threat seriously. S. Korea has been preparing for a pandemic since 2008 and seems to have largely kept this one in check. But what they've spent on pandemic preparation for over a decade, they haven't been spending on x y & z. What's the opportunity cost of being prepared for an unlikely event? If we'd maintained twice the number of intensive care beds in hospitals, we'd have had to find equivalent savings elsewhere all else being equal. I'm aware the decisions being taken are probably more about what is politically acceptable now rather than what is in the longterm best interest of the country, which is why they've gone for a "whatever it takes" response to this crisis, and that's probably why they are up in the polls.
I would love a glimpse at the alternate universe with Corbyn in charge.
I don't understand the full details of it, but there is definitely a cultural thing of wearing masks in Japan if you either are under the weather yourself, or would be vulnerable to catching something. For instance, amongst other occasions, a colleague of mine from Japan used to wear one in meetings while she was pregnant.Or maybe it just all boils down to masks? I think in Japan a lot of people wear masks anyway don't they?
I doubt he is doing the 3am feed. I expect they have help (at least I would hope they do).I'm not really the first to defend him but I did wonder if lack of sleep (due to the baby), may be a factor in him not being able to answer questions competently. I mean obviously he is incompetent but this could just magnify that situation.
Probably not the best example but Cameron had very young children when he was PM, also a severely disabled child. I'm sure BoZo the clown and his missus will have help.I'm not really the first to defend him but I did wonder if lack of sleep (due to the baby), may be a factor in him not being able to answer questions competently.
