UK 'to bring in 14-day air passenger quarantine' - UK airlines say they have been told the government will bring in a 14-day quarantine for anyone arriving in the UK from any country apart from the Republic of Ireland in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is so incredibly dumb. Would have made sense back in January or February, but the cat is out of the bag.

More than anything, this disease is now known to be no where near as dangerous as initially thought, with a likely true infection death rate of 0.27-0.37% for general population and far, FAR lower than that for under 60s!!!

Create an exceptional welfare and protection system for those who need it, but we simply have to get everyone else back to normality ASAP or the Great Depression will look like a lazy walk in the park.

This is so stupid and I’m quickly loosing faith in the government’s handling of this situation. They really don’t seem to have the slightest clue and are ignoring science to make insane decisions.

We’ll still be paying for this idiotic poor decision making bullshit when our great grandchildren are born.
