I saw Boris's interview on CNN before he was infected. The terms and conditions he stated about the lock downs sounded a bit absurd considering how easily this virus can spread.The pace at which UK's number had risen wasn't too surprising then. As you mentioned the role of media, it's just biased everywhere. Appreciate the details.
Yeah, I know what you mean, and I don't disagree. What I would say, is that, even now, we don't know for certain which strategy of dealing with this disease is actually the best. It is still possible that Sweden, Trump etc are correct in that lockdowns only delay the inevitable. There could yet be second waves that make those strategies look significantly better than they currently do. At the moment, the data we have seems to indicate otherwise, but it's still a situation in rapid flux. I'm glad these are not my decisions to make. As I say, I don't think I'd have done any better myself.
Yeah, these situations like this have never been encountered by the world leaders so it's a very tideous thing to deal with. All we can do is hope for the best.Still though, other countries are handling the situation very well. Here, in India, it's such a mess, as usual. Media, government, the extreme communal groups and the treatment of the doctors when they ask for PPE kits. So unbelievably dumb. Several states are doing just fine though.

Nicely put! Much appreciated.
You guys are handling it the best.
Yeah, but the country I grew up in, Britain, is doing really badly. :(Conservative government.
Right. Saw Boris's interview before he was infected. Absurd criteria he had for his lock downs.
Isn't Angela Merkel a moderate conservative? I'd venture that the main difference in leadership between Merkel and the UK's Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson stems from Merkel being a hard working student of physics, while Johnson was a lazy student of classics.
@FactQueen Good point, yes, she is. I think you're probably right that it helps to be a scientist.
