Interesting article on China and Coronavirus outbreak from WHO experts who visited China

 

The WHO sent 25 international experts to China and here are their main findings after 9 days from China_Flu

Thank you for this Legerwood.  What a lot of fascinating, useful information.  One presumes the powers that be will read and use it to form their policies.

Great links (well you know what I mean) Ann from the NIrish and Scottish governments being unwilling to implement the Irish sea-border checks agreed by Boris Johnson (ha ha) to Britain plunges from 11th to 170th in just two years in relation to child's rights (sob sob). An absolute clusterfeck as they would say, reiterated well by the truepublica editor ...''Britain is circling the plughole.''

Thanks for that info Legerwood. Really interesting. You read about ''China's bold approach'', their ability to produce 1.6 million test kits a week, their smart helmets and so on and compare that with what's going on here .. and despair.

The frightening thing is that this WHO report would have been read by most Governments before it was officially released, that they have learned nothing from it is evident in how they are responding, don't throw money at it or let the EU see the whites of our eyes.....

Even one respected US commentator has been shouting that the core lesson out of China, testing, testing, and more testing is the only way combat this effectively while the Prez tweets it'll all be over in a few months... 

Led by donkeys right enough...
