What proof is there that it came from a Chinese Laboratory.That's fair..
I fully accept that in the current climate scrutinising the NHS is not appreciated but if we keep using the Govt as a convenient scapegoat for every issue we ( the citizens of the UK for clarity of 'we' ) are just deluding ourselves.
We keep hearing about the selfless dedication of health workers. And it's true . It's part of the culture of health care.......But that's being taken advantage off. Because staff do make do and carry on health management are slack at keeping on top of their responsibilities.
Immigrant and BAME workers are also being taken advantage off. Their fear of losing their jobs means they put up with lack of ppe poor social distancing etc and no-one ,at the coal face,is fighting their corner.
For the record I fully accept there are things the Govt could have done better/differently/or sooner but our pandemic preparedness was for an entirely different pandemic.
No one could have predicted a particularly virulent Man Made virus escaping from a Chinese laboratory.
I also think the media have played this pandemic badly...The 24hr rolling commentary interspersed with 15minute news slots has been an awful and fear generating method of reporting to the nation. Too many hours of programming to find content for.
The media have ended up politicising the crisis and inevitably looking for a fall guy to publicly pillory.
The underlying policy is to undermine a Premier and a Govt they are at ideological odds with.
Also it appears quite a few learned types predicted a global pandemic was on the cards.
