    Tracking? Too much population, too much hard headed with out social distancing and no face mask no face shield. How covid-19 does work...

    Here is a free to use Contact Tracing App, requires no download, does not require your bluetooth on or GPS tracking.

    This is common sense in Taiwan where only 6 deaths so far with less than 500 infected among a population of 24 million. John Hopkins University initially predicted TAIWAN to be the 2nd highest infected economy in the world given it is only 80 miles away from China with a dozen fight from Wuhan every week. It does not come true. Screening, testing, isolating and contact tracing. Life is human right. If there is no life, where comes human right.

    Sounds like just an excuse to completely map out someone’s life and get all their information without them having committed a crime. Yeah. We have constitutional protections against that. But nice try.

    Seriously 😂 It’s been a total and utter failure from day one. We have a prime minister who is well acquainted with dither and delay. Almost 8 weeks into lockdown and we still can’t testing right! Boris Johnson and his ministers failed to get this right and they need to just come out and admit it. They are continuing to fail. They have advisors resigning because they can’t stick to their own advice. They think they’ve reduced burglaries and shoplifting during a lockdown. They have directly or indirectly contributed to the deaths of front line NHS staff and have the audacity to come out and clap for the NHS. Not to forget Mat Hancock standing at the dispatch box telling Dr Allin Khan to tone in down. The sheer contempt for the people should never go unchallenged.
