    It didn't... directly.
    It did... indirectly.

    Because not everything is measured in terms of money. What value do you put on a human life?
    And the massive benefit of having a healthy population is that they can go back to work.

    The poor financial traders just see a couple of months lost income - it's almost like they had their tables turned over outside the temple. The good samaritans see lives saved.
    Your call, I guess.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    NHS death is service benefit is also 2 x pensionable pay (if a pension member).

    However, if healthcare workers die after contracting Covid19 at work (according to balance of probabilities if there is doubt), compensation should be due as per other industrial injuries. One for the lawyers and courts I expect, if the state doesn't increase the amount.

    And give the size of hat bailouts to other areas of the economy, 60k is a small sum.

    Could you link to an explanation for me please as I genuinely don't understand the explanation as to why this wouldn't have helped if implemented months ago. Did the countries that did lockdown international travel have different scientists or the same ones but just interpreted the results differently?

    I suspect the difference is that that New Zealand has the advantage of not having a load of infectious English people living next door to it! Also doesn’t have Boris Johnson as it’s political leader
    It probably has better PPE provisioning than Germany too, eh Wilhelmet?
