What to do to reduce the impact of the Global Pandemic? Part Two of Three
We need tough measures to meet the threat of pandemics, underlying health issues and a possible catastrophe among the global population.
It is easy to dispute every link below. I can offer lots.
Please feel free to challenge anything in the list – providing you make alternative proposals.
You can advocate that we do nothing, even if the Covid-19 virus spreads unrestrained, to every family, especially the elderly.
You may have that view. If so, please state why.
You do not need to be an expert to have a view. The scientific and medical ‘experts’ deep down know they are not experts. Like most of the rest of us, they do their best according to information at hand and personal viewpoint.
In (mostly) Alphabetical Order
No Lock down at home (to reduce stress, loneliness and domestic anger). No Lock down for shops or businesses. All shops to remain open which provide practical benefits for daily life including coffee shops, cafés and restaurants providing healthy food and drink.
Fast food chains offering French fries, a bun with meat and sauce wedged between, must change their menu to stay open – as part of a nationwide campaign to reduce underlying health issues.
