Will There Be A UK Coronavirus Lockdown
It is decision time for the UK government, time to grow some balls and face the facts.
The Coronavirus COVID-19 has now been officially upgraded by The World Health Organisation (WHO) as a Pandemic.
These scientist, statisticians and health experts don't take these sort of things lightly, they have had plenty of time to get to grips and assess whats really been happening, using actual facts and figures from world wide results.
Here in the UK it is time for our government to ditch the 'stiff upper lip' attitude and the 'wer'e British and we won the war you know', mindset..!
It doesn't work against a never before seen virus.
Lets get things straight, at the time of writing this article, there is no vaccine for the Coronavirus COVID-19
Meanwhile there are other countries systematically closing their borders, shutting down their schools, restricting all but necessary movement and quarantining their entire population.
Italy, Denmark, Lebanon, all on a total lockdown in an attempt to stop the virus spreading amongst its people.
We are two weeks behind Italy and our government are still telling us all you need to do is wash your hands...!
When is someone going to wake up to this situation?
The Minister For Health is even quarantined because she has been tested positive, for crying out load...!!
Even when we do see a Coronavirus vaccine produced it could be weeks before it becomes available.
So working on us being two weeks behind Italy and with a very high probability of the same viral spread happening here, will we land up with a total lockdown?
It would appear that a lockdown scenario is very much on the cards here in the UK.
Once the government pull their heads out of their backsides and take a look at whats happening outside good old blighty, perhaps then, and only then, will they see the real picture of what could, or more correctly, will happen here.
It is only a matter of time, look at the evidence. Look and see what's happening elsewhere.
At the moment some 22 countries have shut down their schools and have blanket restrictions on public meetings to curb the spread.
They are actually pulling their fingers out and doing something pro-active to help reduce the viral spread and as result, to help reduce the final death toll.
Will A Lockdown Happen Here In The UK?
To be honest your guess is as good as mine. Which appears to be the governments approach, guessing....!
With every man and his dog now being classified as an expert, the amount of different lockdown suggestions is getting more and more.
Some of the different reasons given by the experts make perfect sense and I agree with them. But there's so many differing views.
Closing schools, what happens then?
You'd get the grandparents, who are most at risk, having to look after grandchildren simply because the single parent would be thrown out of a home if they can't work.
But then again, we are told, children are the best transmitters of the virus...
A total lockdown will cause economic and social meltdown, with businesses going under by the 1000's. It will take months, if not years, to recover from a total lockdown.
My opinion, for what it's worth is simply this:
As preppers and realists, you prep for the unexpected AND the expected.
You do not just sit back and watch presuming the government to be intelligent, all seeing, all knowing and that only they know best.
Do that at your own risk..!!!
I am as ready as I can be, are you?
Happy Prepping My Friends,
