    When the UK were making the excuses of why our death toll was so much higher, they used terms like "Population Density" "Age demographics" "busiest Airport" etc.

    Both things are "worse" in Japan, everyone of those factors is higher in Japan.

    They just took it seriously after the WHO 30th January Public Health Emergency of International Concern announcement. (after the human to human on the 24th actually)

    When Boris was giving his "coronavirus panic" PM speech in Greenwich on 3rd Feb , Japan was already 3 days into its response - with 20 cases on the board.
    Everything was closed, with testing, tracing and isolation in place , and quarantine for international travel by 27th Feb. 186 cases.

    Wiki isn't bad for this either - seems pretty impartial and unbiased:

    Yes the UK was late to the lockdown party. Too much dithering, not enough decisive leadership. Remember Cheltenham et al?

    Yeah, it's still going on now, people will say "Remember universities".

    All this talk of children going back to school "no matter what" - because they are not as vulnerable, less likely to spread etc etc - but lets put thousands of tech savvy ADULTS (18+) into shared accomodation from all around the country , into what are already hotspots (Sheffield, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Durham) etc. They can all be remote learning.

    It's all transparently about the money. Meanwhile 120bn is still getting spent on HS2.

    That was a fecking joke.

    From the statements they gave at that time it made it clear the head public health officials and politicians spend too much time in VIP/Corporate boxes plus never took primary aged children to school.

    To be fair to the PM, it's hard enough to keep track of how many children he has.
