    Who are these? Are they meant to be looking out for public health in an emergency situation like this pandemic?

    Have they got brain cells at all? Or is just a bunch of ignorant clowns?

    What is our government doing? Did I hear it correctly today that people have to wear masks at weddings? I'm pretty sure I heard about a cluster with a wedding or something, so I presume this is the reason why.

    So what have they done about the meat factories? And other indoor public places? Are they waiting for the **** to hit the fan first before acting on it.

    More of a rant really.

    You should watch the press briefings, they're a great source on information.
    In regards the meat factories, they've put more restriction and are doing more monitoring.

    The hospitals are currently not overwhelmed = they’re doing a great job.

    No country in Europe have hospitals that are overwhelmed, or even close to. When you say they are doing a great job, who are you comparing them to.

    I know, I was being somewhat facetious. I was referring to the original metric back in March that we used to assess their performance.

    Now we've slowly sleepwalked into a 'suppress the virus' strategy which is a lot harder to quantify.
