    Its still in the camp of overblown hysteria, but it is serious.

    With a new illness, governments should be quick to react, but everyone in the West has reacted at a complete snail pace, you'd be shocked to hear that the UK government has responded exceptionally quick compared to the country I live in. It will start to get the attention and quarantine it requires now, schools will be closed nationwide soon I imagine.

    One elderly person has died?
    I can’t help but think there’s a massive overreaction to this. They’re on about playing games behind closed doors. What about trains, the undergrounds where there’s millions of commuters in a day?
    I can’t get my head around this, but I’m sure the experts know more than I do.

    The UK have done good in that companies that need to close will receive money, local governments can pay unemployed people without them actually attending job centers, and sick pay will be improved. They're all fantastic measures.

    Here in the great socialist nation of Norway? Absolutely nothing. They're even debating whether to screen test people at Oslo airport, what schools should be shut, if people should attend the doctors or sit at home, what about sick pay? Businesses? No idea.

    It's been a complete and utter non response. The government here is a bureaucratic joke, with absolutely no responsibility for the public, they seriously couldn't care less. But if I'm driving a car in the dark and I'm not wearing a hi visiblity jacket, you can bet your ass a cop in an unmarked car will be on me in 15 seconds. £800 fine.

    Yeah, sure. If anyone asks, Chippy said it was okay and he would pick up the tab if anyone lost out financially.

    Here's what should have happened:

    WHO - there's a potential for a global pandemic, invoke protocol zero and follow the procedures we all agreed to put in place after the SARS situation.
    Every country in the World - gotcha.

    What has happened:

    WHO - erm. I think it could be a problem. No, wait, it's definitely a problem, in China. Like SARS, so just asians are gonna die.
    Every country - ****ing bat-eating, baby rat-frying bastards. **** em.
    WHO - Uh-oh, it's not just in China.
    Every country - what the actual ****?
    WHO - yeah it's everywhere. Erm. Epidemic? No, pandemic? What's worse than pandemic? Nothing? Somebody call marketing, we need a bigger word.
    Every country - well what should we do?
    WHO - Loads. Loads and loads of things.

    How does behind closed doors work?

    Are the media/commentators/cameras still allowed in?

    This conversation should continue:

    Boris: keep calm and wash your hands
    Every other country: close borders, shuts county down, closes schools etc
    Boris: Don't close anything. Our scientists knows best
    WHO: This is a pandemic
    Boris: Can I make money out of this?
    Donald: Yes Boris we can become even richer
    Boris: Everything continues as normal. If enough over 70s die we may consider something as we will have saved pensions money.

    You're wrong. I drove past a school last night on my way back from the supermarket and it looked closed to me.



    It was about 11pm, but still...............
