Sorry Cap but I do not agree with your red, white and blue take on it. I know too many people in the NHS who confirm a different view on events than what our political masters want the public to believe - crucial shortages of medical kit and as for our testing regime! We are reliant on people being willing to walk into danger hence why we owe a debt of gratitude to all in the NHS who know they are not fully kitted out but still do the job. Remember the current government even failed to join in a joint EU initiative to buy ventilators because they forgot to read their e-mails! As for preparation, this article is an interesting read - https://www.theguard...rly-implemented
As for the public, I remain to be convinced they get it. I was walking the dog in the sunshine earlier today and watched as people had picnics on the beach, folk crowded together on benches, kids played in the bunkers on the golf course - social distancing my arse.
