Looks like W.H.O. are a paper tiger, only advisory unfortunately.

I'd like to think after this global disaster there'd be some kind of body/organisation set up to globally handle this type of thing faster and more efficiently next time. Sign up, nominate a team from each member, that can travel freely and with advice heeded in any outbreak if anything is spotted on the radar. Fully funded with regular conferences. It's not good to let countries fight stuff like this independently as we've seen. We have to find better ways to globally handle situations like this cause the odds are there'll be another from somewhere in the future. Mixed measures by independent government's have helped to spread this.

Hi Jon,

Yes, I guessed it was tongue in cheek, but still, gotta take any opportunity to raise our colours.

It was a joke Beany, but thanks for the Wikipedia copy & paste.

Positives .... kids and teachers doing lessons online. Ours are experts on Zoom and Google Meet after a couple of weeks, finally the school being forced to use a bit of technology can only be a good thing.

Hi Jon,

No, it seems it's not that much to do with the German car industry, but is British innovation based in England.

Mercedes-Benz, through its subsidiary Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Limited, is currently involved in Formula One as a constructor under the name of Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. The team is based in Brackley, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom, using a German licence.

Couldn't agree more BB. Great to see everyone trusting expert scientists again after dismissing expert economists for so long.

Is Mercedes' help with the CPAP devices the 'German car industry will make sure everything goes well' that Nigel promised so often?

Hi Jon,

They just said on BBC TV that the Nightingale hospital was constructed by an army of civilian tradesmen with help from the military. They didn't say who managed and oversaw the operation, but probably an amalgam of the NHS, the military and construction specialists.
As you say, it was a great job by all involved to complete it in 10 days.
That follows the great job of Mercedes, the University College London and UCLH, in making the new CPAP breathing aid and having it approved for NHS use, also in about 10 days.
Also, of great merit was the return of 25000 retired NHS staff to the front line and the 750000 volunteers who have signed up to help out where needed.
Given the division and confrontation in our country over the last 3 years, and having our competence and determination questioned, it's welcome to see the evidence of our country's historical spirit, and expertise.

BB.

Whoever was in charge of getting the Nightingale hospital up and running (military, I assume?) should be running the whole of the NHS for the duration. Great job.

Is it being staffed by military medics? With 40k + nursing vacancies and so many ill or self isolating, how are they going to find the staff otherwise?
