The spread of the coronavirus is threatening the American economy and public health.
There’s one thing that the country desperately wishes it had done differently.
Donald Trump heard 4 words about coronavirus that broke his heart.
The United Kingdom is dreadfully underprepared for a coronavirus outbreak.
The socialized healthcare is nowhere near where it needs to be to combat coronavirus.
There are already shocking shortages of doctors and life saving equipment in Britain and there are long wait times for standard procedures.
There are only 5,000 ventilators in all of England and England has only a seventh of the ICU beds per capita that America has.
Given the large number of people who require ICU attention and ventilators England should’ve been worried about a coronavirus outbreak that their system could not handle.
But until last week the UK hadn’t taken any steps of containment beyond advising high risk groups to stay at home.
However, now that the UK has had a surge in cases they are locking everyone in their own homes, and citizens are only allowed out for essentials and to exercise once a day.
It didn’t have to be that way.
If they had restricted foreign travel into their country weeks ago they wouldn’t have to restrict people leaving their homes now.
For the past three months flights have come to England daily from China, Iran, and Italy and not a single measure was put in place to stop the Chinese coronavirus from spreading.
Nigel Farage blasted the British government because they haven’t closed their borders yet.
“It’s all too late.” He warned on Twitter.
According to Breitbart News:
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday night that the UK would go into enforced lockdown after reports of people ignoring the scientific advice to self-isolate to stop the spread of coronavirus.
The measures mean that more than two people who do not live together will not be able to congregate; Britons will only be allowed to leave the house for essential shopping and one form of exercise a day like going for a walk; and shops selling non-essential goods will close. These measures will be in place for at least three weeks and the police have to power to enforce the rules if people do not follow them.
After Mr Johnson made the statement, Mr Farage reacted by saying: “So we are to be locked down — and a new testing regime will begin. Will the planes keep coming from Milan, Tehran, and Beijing? I expect so. It’s all too late.
Speaking earlier in the day, the Brexiteer criticised the government’s lack of “joined-up thinking” and for failing to learn the lessons of Italy, the viral epicentre for Europe.
Mr Farage said: “On the very same day that Lombardy was closed down, 17 flights came into the United Kingdom from Milan’s Malpensa airport…. [with] not a single person being temperature checked.”
England didn’t protect its own people.
It’s chosen a politically correct idea of globalism that’s popular among liberals.
The problem with globalism is that when hard times hit every country is going to look after its own people first.
China isn’t exporting masks or medicine like it was before, neither is India.
It’s a good thing Trump is the president during this crisis because he’s going to protect the American people first unlike the failure of an English government to protect its own citizens.
