Our liberty is more important than being enslaved by wannabe tyrants who are using this here Corona to ruin everything.

    Yup, the UK is in lockdown mode again. I honestly don't understand the logic behind allowing schools to be open in several places, prime breeding and spreading grounds for the virus, but telling everyone else to stay indoors. The kids will spread it as soon as they get home from school! My work place has continued as normal throughout this whole ordeal so I'm grateful for that, but my thoughts are with everybody struggling and suffering with loneliness, depression and financial problems during this nightmare. Here's hoping the vaccine ends this bollocks once and for all!

    Acting like you know what to do is better than admitting you don't know what to do. The governments don't know their asses from a hole in their head and they won't admit it. Our government could screw up a one car funeral let alone a "pandemic".

    Given the way this was mishandled,
    If there is a mind to weaponize such a pandemic,
    the result would be tremendous...

    Bombs and missiles are not needed to bring a modernized nation to its knees. An incompetent government will do just fine. Soon it will be a year since the "official" nonsense started and what has changed?

    What do you mean "if"? It has already been used to undermine the US economy right before an election...

    Italian researchers now have found an incident of COVID-19 in Milan as early as November 2019.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...w-report-shows

    Independent (because their government refuses to cooperate) research also points to the virus being in China months earlier than previously thought. In fact, the virus may well be several years old, even in humans, as it often takes that long to being highly infectious.

    The end result really is that the trade of wildlife for human consumption must end, everywhere. That's the only way to stop these viruses. While they're at it, stop all wildlife trade. Hides, pelts, tusks, horns, fins, whatever. All are grotesque, and only exist due to antiquated, buffoonish beliefs.

    The virus was in the United States well before the government's declaration day. When people travel across the world that's what happens.

    Agreed. Some of the trade in animal parts in certain parts of the world turns my stomach, and I'm about as far removed from being a Green Peace activist as you can get. I mean bat soup for fuck's sake...bat soup?!

    About 24h before Portugal enters 1 month lockdown, if not more.

    Situation was bad but this could have been avoided.

    What really pi**** me off is that during christmas and new year many health experts who became famous in tv and radio for the last months simply vanished from national media and now have been promptly replaced by new faces warning about impending doom.

    I'm no expert in anything but it was predictable that politicians were afraid of taking more restrictive measures and suffer the results on the coming elections of 24th January.

    Great, just great...

    Well... thanks to work and the Chinese, I've joined the Covid gang. A horrible virus that I hope many won't have suffered with anymore. Still, not all bad 10 days clear and 4 weeks off work on full pay

    Welcome to what the United States has been experiencing. For the past few months our former president went AWOL in terms of the c19 and the president elect (and now president) has been eerily silent. He campaigned on having a plan but I still don't know what it is.The doctors on the task force? The rat appeared to be enamored with becoming a celebrity and the female told people not to travel for the holidays while she did the opposite.
