Coronavirus came to UK 'on at least 1,300 separate occasions' | BBC News

Coronavirus was brought into the UK on at least 1,300 separate occasions, a major analysis of the genetics of the virus shows.
The study, by the Covid-19 Genomics UK consortium (Cog-UK), completely quashes the idea that a single "patient zero" started the whole UK outbreak.
The analysis also finds China, where the pandemic started, had a negligible impact on cases in the UK.
Instead those initial cases came mostly from European countries.

Stop wasting time on stupid conspiracy theories and instead focus on the potential next pandemic and stop it early:

Ignore the conspiracy theories: scientists know Covid-19 wasn't created in a lab

The area of Wales that missed coronavirus - and the simple system it set up


One big difference that sets #Ceredigion apart was that even before it had recorded its first case of Covid-19, it had set up a "homemade" in-house test track and trace system.

The man behind it, Barry Rees, the corporate director for Ceredigion Council, is a scientist by training. He believes contact tracing is the only way of "pursuing the #disease then rather than following it".

Is this the reason for why the county has emerged unscathed? Has a simple contact tracing system saved hundreds of lives?

Quote of note:

"...Michele Usuelli, a doctor and regional councillor for the small, leftwing party, Più Europa, pins much of the blame on politics and healthcare mismanagement. He said Lombardy’s fate began to be charted out in the late 1990s when the Italian government decentralised healthcare, giving regions more autonomy."

"At the same time, the privatisation of healthcare became more prevalent. Although other regions continued to mostly maintain the public health system, a succession of Lombardy governors, including Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia between 1995 and 2013, and Matteo Salvini’s far-right League since then, allowed the private and public systems to compete for funds based on efficiency."

"Even though Lombardy developed one of the most enviable healthcare systems in Italy, the strategy left private firms free to invest in areas of care that made more money, inevitably leading to a reduction of beds in the public system and leaving the region less equipped to meet all types of health needs."

Via Why was Lombardy hit harder than Italy's other regions?

I thought the Times/Sunday Times was a Johnson supporting paper and would be singing his praises and how he was a leader and took one for the team?

Coronavirus: 38 days when Britain sleepwalked into disaster
Boris Johnson skipped five Cobra meetings on the virus, calls to order protective gear were ignored and scientists’ warnings fell on deaf ears. Failings in February may have cost thousands of lives

"Nobody could see Coronavirus coming, let alone prepare for it"

BREAKING: The entire UK strategy for fighting #coronavirus was based on false analysis. Scientists advising the Gov’t now say the UK only realised "in the last few days" that its Coronavirus strategy would "likely result In hundreds of thousands of deaths"


This reminds me of an old British TV show.

Johnson has turned comedy into reality with unimaginable consequences for the lives and safety of the citizens!

I think this is an excellent description of the situation we're in right now (you might have to expand, click on the tweet or something to get the original and the reply):

Millions of Norwegians and foreigners living in or visiting Norway will be impacted by a drastic set of measures announced by Erna Solberg today. Norway is essentially shutting itself down for two weeks, in a bid to stop the rapid spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19 disease.
