Just watching the news and the coaches transporting the Brits to the hospital after landing back here from China. They had a health professional on each coach wearing protective clothing but..... the coach drivers had nothing not even a face mask!!!!

The coach drivers all volunteered apparently so I’m guessing the no masks was their choice.

It was explained on the news that wearing protective clothing would have impaired the drivers ability to drive the coaches. They didn't say why. They volunteered and will be put into isolation too.

The passengers (as potentially infected) should be the ones wearing the masks.

The passengers were all behind the drivers and apparently the risk of infections was virtually nil.
