Ok, maybe a bit of an over reaction to what is happening in the UK, but as you watch what other countries are doing, I am sitting here going what the fuck.
What we have been advised to do, is avoid big crowds, self isolate the whole household if one person comes down with it for 14 days and wash our hands.
To be fair to the government today they announced a lot of plans that they are putting in place for those industries that are now at risk and mortgage breaks for up to 3 months for homeowners. Well this is great, it is.
Unless you are self employed, on a zero hour contract and or renting.
And this is where the social experiment comes in, most people on the breadline are on zero hour contracts, pension age and normally renting.
So why announce those plans first before the plans of people who self isolation is going to break or even worse, going to ignore the guidelines and continue going, spreading this further.
Also our schools are still open as are our bars, clubs and restuarants, we have only been told to avoid it.
Surely they are still not trying to put money before people? It is a massive worry for loads of people who know they are not going to survive, who are now scared of losing their homes.
I get that they are trying to stop the curve from going up, but this is not the way to do it.
The other reason I say this, is the people that seem to be getting tested are those either rich enough to be able to afford it or those is hospital, no one is being tested despite this being the best method to track the virus.
Those that are rich enough to afford the testing, are probably rich enough to go into self isolation for a week, while the rest of us and having to keep going out, taking our children to school, going to work and are going to end up spreading it to everyone else.
