Covid10 In London, UK | Unique in its approach

by Andrea
(London, UK)


I live in London, UK and people are panicking here. There are 35 deaths as of today - Sunday 15 March, and that number is expected to keep rising!

The approach here in England is a more cautious one when compared with neighbouring European countries.

There is no lockdown (as yet) and the UK government is taking an approach of building "herd immunity", allowing many people to get it and thus build up immunity in the country.

That approach is disputed by many. There is talk of asking everyone over the age of 70 to self-isolate, as they are the most at risk group.

Many of them are angry, feeling patronised, saying that they are fitter than many younger people.

What is clear is that many events are being postponed. People are panicking, the shelves are empty despite reassurances from the supermarkets that there are supplies.

People don't believe it, or fear the worst, thus the panic buying.

It is a sad time all round, the world will never be the same after this, I think. Things will change.

Wellesley's Note

Hey Andrea,

Is that really true?

If so, I agree with you, but I won't use the work 'unique', I'd say strange, especially the 'herd immunity' part of it.

I don't think I get that aspect of it at all. Please provide a bit more detail on that here (comment below).

And yes, I totally agree with you, the world will never be the same again; there are (should) some serious learning.

But hey, thanks for the update my friend! Your feedback is most appreciated!

Keeping healthy
by: Cheri Avery Black

Thanks for your post -- would enjoy hearing an update. As I understand it, immunity for life usually comes from getting something like measles, which is much better to get as a child. Interesting, it seems that very few youth are showing symptoms of this virus?

On another track, there's so much credible evidence that vaccines, as they are formulated now with high levels of mercury and formaldehyde, are something to be cautious of.

I would be very careful about checking out the ingredients of any new vaccines before having them injected. Keep healthy and happy.
