Coronavirus/COVID-19 part 2

Post by Sarah » Wed Feb 24 2021 6:07am

Just one of many pandemic stories not breaking through into the Tory-friendly mass media, telling that "govt was unprepared, downgraded PPE req. and was corrupt & too slow in getting more":
Let me tell you story about why I’m so very angry about this

"PPE suppliers with political ties given 'high-priority' status, report reveals"
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... rt-reveals

In early March 2020 it was very quickly apparent the NHS was not “ready” for COVID, and in fact we ran out of the correct PPE nearly instantly in many areas.

Many of us were saying so publicly.
We got in touch with the Cabinet office and agreed to send them our large scale (million+) sources that came to us.

Emails flowed back and forth, it all seemed very hopeful, but then nothing.

By the time the government started looking abroad again, supply chains had been bought up at the factory level as other countries, like the US, joined the global bun fight.

All that wasted time now seems to have been spent on “VIPs” with little or no experience or stock, instead of the actual suppliers.
Nearly 1000 U.K. healthcare workers have died as a consequence of inadequate PPE, one of the worst rates in the entire world.

Sadly, this was predicted by many (including myself).

The Ghost of Christmas Future will be telling a tale of betrayal at the highest level.

Lives for votes.

Boris has announced that he is due to address the nation at 6pm this evening, although he could announce a short delay until 8pm at which point an even longer delay hasn't yet been ruled out.
