    I'm sure the staff will be very grateful and think you are doing them a massive favour, gigantic even, by paying them what they have earned for their work and overtime throughout the month.

    Not all heroes wear capes iirc.

    I think you are absolutely right, apart from the grateful bit (they won't be as they are all needy entitled twats) and not a single one of them will appreciate the potential harm I am putting myself in just so that they can get a few quid extra. No need to bother next month as all overtime has been stopped. Already had both of these conversations;
    "You can't make me come to work, it's the Coronavirus"
    "You have to let me come to work, I want to be paid my overtime"

    Former Health Ministry chief Prof. Yoram Lass says governments can't halt viruses and the lockdown will kill more people from depression than the virus.

    Former Ministry of Health director-general Prof. Yoram Lass has been regularly interviewed by the Israeli media since the coronavirus outbreak first started. But in contrast to the prophets of doom and deep concern shown by most medical professionals, he has presented a somewhat different and controversial opinion. Prof. Lass feels that it is wrong to shut down the entire country because of a virus that is ultimately less of a killer than the flu. This is an outlook that has antagonized many and has made him a 'persona non grata' in the TV interview studios.

    Do you think you are being excluded because you presented an unpopular position?

    "I can tell you that several days ago I heard with my own ears, after I was interviewed on the radio by Nissim Mishal, the deputy director of the Ministry of Health Prof. Itamar Grotto tell Mishal that I shouldn't be brought into studios. And last Friday, I was invited to the studio by Ayala Hasson. Some three days beforehand, they called me and ask not to go anywhere else, and then the day before they cancelled. And who did they replace me with on the program? The futurist David Passig, who told the people of Israel that in the best case scenario 40 million people would die, and in the worst case scenario 300 million people would die. That shows you how the media is only trumpeting hysteria. Because it was clear that if I was sitting next to him, I would only have told an amazed Israeli people that every year 17,000 Italians die of flu while in Israel only 126 died of flu last year.

    "Italy is known for its enormous morbidity in respiratory problems, more than three times any other European country. In the US about 40,000 people die in a regular flu season and so far 40-50 people have died of the coronavirus, most of them in a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington."

    "The characteristics in every country are different. In Italy the median age of those dying of the coronavirus is 81 and the population is very old and frail and smokes more and among the dead are more men. In Korea, in contrast, more young women and non-smokers have been infected. In every country, more people die from regular flu compared with those who die from the coronavirus. All this is what I was saying when they were still listening to me. Instead of this they bring somebody like Passig, who says the opposite things, and I'm sure that what he says won't happen."

    If only. The sad fact is I have to deal with human beings, these human beings are manual trades and there are no bots that can do their work. Do you have a bot managing a football team? No, you need someone who has experience of playing and knows how to manage players. Biggest conflicts I have at work are senior managers and consultants who have never even picked up a spanner trying to tell me how to manage trades because there is no algorithm that applies to every scenario.
