Taiwan’s response to the virus has been spectacularly good. The only new cases are imported. I would worry far more if flights come from New York.

But flights don't always have to be direct. For example, couldn't someone fly to Greenland, then onto the UK ?

Presumably these are rescue flights and will soon stop

Up until yesterday the daily flight from Rio was full of Brazilian “tourists”. Luckily that has now stopped.

Correct. Many arriving passengers do not travel direct

My local hair salon has closed and others in my 'Neck of the woods' have also taken the decision to shut their doors.I suspect this will occur nationwide.

With a re-opening NOT for quite a while, some kind souls will end up with tussock hair askew,crinkly hair in a mad frizz or indeed hair very long and straight akin to al dente spaghetti.

Will certainly keep some behind closed doors as they will not wish to be seen with hair resembling an abandoned chaffinch's nest.

Construction site in Waterloo this morning, every single one of these people has the ability to spread the virus on to someone more vulnerable and chance to exacerbate and extend the crisis.

Why the government has not mandated closure of businesses at this point baffles me. All these men will be self employed and as such don’t have cover in the provisions announced on Friday so of course they would still go to work.

It’s going to be easy to try and blame the public for going out And spreading this but without proper support in place non essential workers will continue to go to work.

Today Gatwick will have flights from Dubai and Amsterdam both large transit hubs. A flight from Cape Town and wait for it...... one from Bologna! Still Border Force staff are at no more risk than anyone else ( according to some)

So much for 'herd immunity' then.

Not that it made much sense in the first place.

However, I also don't agree with turning the country into an economic disaster zone where crowds are banned. We lived with smallpox and other viruses through history...the Spanish flu (which killed the fit and healthy) and we didn't destroy the economy doing it.

I believe the focus should be on isolating the elderly and vulnerable and testing everyone coming off an incoming flight not on telling everyone else to stay home....that isn't going to work anyway.

That's where all the money should go.....not on stopping the economy and paying people.....how long do they expect that to continue?

Anyway, you can't 'ask' people to do A and B and then expect compliance, not in this society.....that's been the most awkward aspect of government advice.

Just had an email from TFL saying they are lifting congestion charge in order for key workers and suppliers to keep moving.

Haha, I don't think there are many on these pages with full heads of hair any more, unless of course they were lucky enough to be born without the follically challenged gene.

Great idea.

Just been speaking to a mate who has lost all of his work, but he does have three large transit vans. The government should consider offering temporary delivery jobs to people in this position. It could solve logistics problems.
