What I'm going to say, will set some of you off. I'm aware of this. I'm NOT going to respond to the nasty comments. Making that clear upfront.
Talking to my lovely Chinese friend yesterday. Her mother has kidney problems and needs dialysis. Her father and brother are useless and therefore she is going to travel to Wuhan (where her family live) to help her mum arrange and start her treatment.
When she arrives in Wuhan, she will be tested. Then she will have to do a 2 week quarantine in her parents home. ONLY then will she be allowed out. After she's finished helping her mum set up her medical treatment, she will return (by train) to her home city. She will be tested again. And will have to then do a 2 week quarantine again.
Both quarantines are absolute. No going out. Not for shopping. Not to visit anyone. Not to get medication.
I'm AWARE of attitudes to China. That isn't what this post is about. It is about HOW to contain the infection through thorough and repeated testing. Ultimately, THIS is what we in the UK need to do.
