That's another thing we should have done early on, banning flights and people who had travelled through China, BA acted quite quickly stopping their flights but the government did F all, a guy I work with his Chinese gf flew back from Shanghai late Feb, no restrictions or even advice, I couldn't believe it!

It would have stopped it in it's tracts, also nothing would have changed/ground to a halt - life would have gone on pretty much as normal.

It would be no different to those in China who have been walking around for years with those masks on to try and combat the extreme pollution in China.

sounds like you're advocating the sort of approach one would expect from a totalitarian state?

This is part of the reason China has got on top of this quickly and Europe and USA haven't, they have generally obedient citizens, where as we like to question authority!

Copied this from the Guardian !

An intensive care doctor who voiced unease about facemasks was told by their hospital that “if we hear of these concerns going outside these four walls your career and your position here will be untenable”.
Another intensive care specialist was called into a meeting with their bosses and disciplined after raising concerns.
A GP working at Chase Farm hospital in London was sent home for voicing unease.
A consultant paediatrician in Yorkshire was told in an email from their hospital that their social media output was being monitored and they should be careful.
A GP who appealed to her community on social media for more supplies of PPE was then barred by her local NHS clinical commissioning group from speaking out. “I was being warned I wasn’t toeing the party line,” she said.

In an ideal scenario and the government had thought things out – they should have made it compulsory for anyone outside or at work to wear a NBC type Mask and gloves, and made them pay for them, then nobody allowed outside without a mask. Very simple process to spray and sterilise when removed, ready for next time required.

Life could have gone on much the same, apart from nobody being allowed out of their home without Mask & Gloves fitted, under any circumstances.

It could never have happened thou as the bloody masks are made in China!

Agreed spanker. Many businesses and venues etc shut well before The GOVTS advice. Responsible forward thinking people actually forced the hand of the govt.

In an ideal world yes but sadly there's too many selfish people and too many people who don't think it's necessary anyway!

I flew down to Limoges in France on 27th of Feb and returned on the 1st March , i was expecting to see things like hand sanitizers at train stations and Manchester airport , so obvious and would of done so much good the few mass gatherings like Cheltenham races where there was 250 000 and the Liverpool match against Madrid was just insane !

but to me , we are going to have 2 x doubling of the figures because they fuc*ed up with the herd immunity policy which , after they finally did a u turn ,lost us around 9 days when we should of shut down , so the last 2 doubling of the figures are down to them ignoring all the evidence and data from other countries and the WHO , not the band ! and will equate to 1000's of death's

But along the way we have seen some appalling incompetence and outright lies when we need to have confidence in what we are being told ! the level of lies feels like the run up to the election , wan*ers !

100% agree BB. This is not the time for snowflake/public rights to movement principles. The Russians have got it right, big fines and 5 years jail for the idiots.

There isn’t enough of a police force to lock down in parts of London, it will take the military.
The meth drinkers and crackheads are still begging for the trolley pound coins, right in the faces of women shopping down the road to me, picking up fag butts off the floor to smoke
I’ve watched the police shepherd them off and they’re back before I’m at the front of the queue to get in.
