I did actually think yesterday, there must clearly be life elsewhere in the Universe, and if there is they are probably looking at us thinking what is wrong with this lot.
I don’t really know what the answer is to be honest. I can see why the UK have gone down the path we have, mainly because it is all well and good China locking people away and then saying they have got rid of it, but all that is going to happen in my mind is as soon as people are allowed out, the virus will come back. There is no way at all they can possibly decontaminate EVERY SINGLE THING. Just not possible, something will be missed, and it will come back.
I feel for Italy, and Spain big time! Italy seems to have copped it far worse because of their strong sense of family values. Very much family orientated, they wanted to stick together and it has exacerbated the situation. In Spain from what I have heard from friends and family out there, it sounds like most of it was concentrated mainly in Madrid, the problem seems to have worsened significantly from the Government telling people to isolate, and them all then leaving in their droves to go to weekend and holiday homes further out, and thus spreading the virus further across the country (perhaps @Brian might be able to confirm that?).
Personally I’m not particularly scared about it for now, I kind of feel like I may have already had it in December, obviously no real way to confirm that, but I felt rough as anything for a week or two with very similar symptoms, excessively tired, achey, irritably warm etc. So who knows.
The next week or two is crucial, if we as a species can get on top of this, we might just stand a chance of some sort of normality but we will see how that goes I guess.
