Boris Johnson, a British statesman that Londoners have taken to calling “Plague Johnson” after he tested positive for Coronavirus, is telling people that things are going to get a whole lot worse in Sunny Britain.
I’m not sure how bad it is there, but it is hard to believe it could get any worse in America, what with everyone locked in their houses and military on the streets doing door-to-door compliance checks.
The idea of kicking this all up a notch at this point is totally deranged. We have already maxed out, surely.
Short of hauling people off to camps, I just don’t even see what could be done.
The prime minister has warned that the coronavirus crisis will get worse before it gets better, in a letter being sent to every UK household.
Boris Johnson, who is self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19, says stricter restrictions could be put in place if necessary.
Britons will also get a leaflet detailing government rules on leaving the house and health information.
It follows criticism over the clarity of government advice to date.
The number of people who have died with coronavirus in the UK has now reached 1,019, with a further 260 deaths announced on Saturday.
There are now 17,089 confirmed cases in the UK.
In the letter being sent to 30 million households at an anticipated cost of £5.8m, Mr Johnson writes: “From the start, we have sought to put in the right measures at the right time.
“We will not hesitate to go further if that is what the scientific and medical advice tells us we must do.”
Tough measures to tackle the spread of coronavirus, including a ban on public gatherings of more than two people and the closure of shops selling non-essential goods, were introduced last week.
“It’s important for me to level with you – we know things will get worse before they get better,” the letter reads.
“But we are making the right preparations, and the more we all follow the rules, the fewer lives will be lost and the sooner life can return to normal.”
Experts have said they expect the number of coronavirus cases and deaths to continue to rise for the next two to three weeks, before the effects of social distancing measures and restrictions on everyday life begin to have an impact.
Responding to reports current measures could be in place until June, Scotland’s chief medical officer Catherine Calderwood told BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House: “The modelling that’s been done, and that I have seen, has always said that we need at least 13 weeks of some sort of measures in order to really get this virus away from spreading amongst people.
“When you have a shorter period of time, as I understand other countries have done, as soon as you lift the measures the virus comes back again because you haven’t stopped it transmitting amongst lots of people.”
There won’t be any viruses in June, but you’ll still be locked in your house!
We have gone so far off the rails, we’re in a dark cave, and no one can even figure out what is happening.
It’s like there’s a separate virus that is affecting people’s brains.
This is like Videodrome.
The British plan to do purposeful exposure for the reasons of immunity building sounded dangerous when it was first discussed, but it now makes logical sense. We have the data. If the people are not fat or old or with some other condition, they can be exposed to the virus and build immunity.
We should go back to that plan.
At the very least, people who have more or less zero chance of being infected shouldn’t be locked in their houses!
It doesn’t make any sense!
If the people at risk are already locked in their houses, why would you need to also lock up people who aren’t at risk???
This all seems to be a conspiracy, because it is just not possible to believe these people are actually this stupid.
Alex Jones said the Swine Flu would lead to martial law. Here’s a picture from Texas Monthly of them pointing this out as one of his kookiest theories:
Along with putting it in the header image, they also put it in the subheading.
Because it was just so kooky.
That was in March of 2010.
Exactly ten years ago, for those keeping count.
And now it’s all real – you’re locked in your house, there’s military on the streets and the leader of Britain is telling you it’s going to get even more extreme.
And the chaos will run into June.
As the economy collapses even further, and people lose their minds because they’re locked inside thinking a virus is going to kill them.
I Just Hope
I just hope that Boris Johnson dies from the virus and they create an AI version of him and he just rules Britain forever from a high definition TV screen.
They can just tell people he’s still recovering from the virus.
