Despite the WHO and Imperial College both confirming that there is no evidence for airborne transmission of Covid 19, Matt Hancock threatens to impose a stricter fascist police state and ban people from exercising outside.

It’s fine for the well off to enjoy the sunshine in their gardens but the poor have to remain under house arrest in their flats.

Combined with existing chronic mental health issues, stress could potentially have the same end result in someone with underlying health issues, who has severe infection of the virus.
Any effects of the lockdown combined with any treatment restrictions, on mental health conditions, in their many manifestations, could be hugely significant in the short term and long term.
I don't think we can underestimate the effects of stress on all individuals in the current situation.
 
 
I'm not trying to underestimate it. The biggest risk is the pandemic, managing that may increase other risks for some but these are less than the pandemic.
Risk management.

I try to avoid reading the sun.
Looks like CMO has royally f**ked up.
She has issued a statement apologising.

As a wee aside, was she caught by a local at her holiday home or did the sun sent a reporter and photographer on the same unnecessary journey as she did?

More likely a local since it wasn't the 1st time she had did it. 

It not as if she is an unknown being on the telly everyday.

Calderwood had now admitted she also visited her 2nd home last weekend as well. 
Nice example she had shown to her kids.
I reckon when the virus scare is over, her job will be as well. 
Kinda catch 22 now.
Sack her and lose the expertise she brings to this, or keep her and Public lose trust in what she says.

Not sure if FM can actually sack her anyway?

I'd sack her as she is not irreplaceable, nobody is.

He expertise can still be sought but just not as CMO

She has lost complete confidence with the general public.

Utterly staggering what she has done

She's now being removed from the daily briefing which is good in my opinion.

As I said I'm not sure FM can sack her as she's an emoyee of NHS Scotland?
She'll probably quietly resign after this is over.

Main take homes

 

The virus is already on the decline before the impact of social distancing

 

Social distancing will prolong the virus and make the situation worse

 

People should be going outside. Forcing people to stay inside will prolong the virus and make the situation worse

 

The lockdown will cause more people to die from the virus

 

The lockdown will cause a second wave

 

 Testing is a waste of time

What is the problem with visiting second homes ? 

 

Absolutely nothing

 

The lockdown is completely unnecessary and will cause 000s of deaths

 

Unfortunately, for holding this view you get abused.

 

Indeed, you even get folk like cockles and TPFTWAT wishing for your family to get the virus for holding these views. Shameful sociopaths.

 

Thankfully there are cracks appearing in their fascist Tory regime. The panic will be well on the wane by the end of April....

 

Until the second wave starts in autumn, caused by the lockdown

Its a new virus, there is not enough evidence yet to say one way or the other whether there is airborne transmission of COVID-19, thats why any responsible individual will apply restrictions. 

Why don't you go to one of the hospitals in Scotland with COVID-19 patients and ask them to cough near you ? 

Also forget the well off/poor comparison to get approval for your junk, your ideas would take many lives of the poor
