Yes, definitely encouraging to hear, especially on the back of the deal with the Private Hospitals. Even breweries such as Brewdog are stepping up and manufacturing and delivering Hand Sanitiser to Hospitals. All these things combined could save many thousands of lives potentially. All about buying as many days/weeks/months as possible until a vaccine is (hopefully!) rolled out.
It's a funny world we live in. If there's World War breaking out, you can rest assured those of us that are able would get called to arms, given some basic training and taught how to shoot and kill another man. I wonder if a global pandemic posed a similar threat to our nation (which it could do), whether those of us that are 'low risk' could be trained and equipped to potentially save lives? Surely it wouldn't be that hard to train someone to take Ob's or to intubate a patient? It could help free up the more fully trained staff to care for those who need it most. I know it would never happen but sometimes you have to ask why and look at where our priorities lie... ...bit like how the EFL are celebrated for pledging £50m to clubs. How many ventilators does that get you now days? Nevermind eh
Cancel or suspend all sporting or non sporting events until we've dealt with the major issue in hand. It's an entertainment industry. Nothing more. There's no point playing games with no crows to entertain if we're all locked up in quarantine or clogging up ICU's. Going ahead with crowd generating activities will simply create a huge petri dish for this thing to spread. Remember there's a 5-14 day incubation period and whilst it may "just be a flu" for you, it could kill the person who has a season ticket next to you, or their family member, or yours. There's no point in us or governing bodies hanging around waiting to take action. Look at the state of Europe at the moment. I'm certainly no doom and gloom merchant but we all need to have a sense of perception regarding entertainment Vs self preservation. There's no point wasting Public Service resources and PPE/Sanitation equipment on Training Grounds and Stadiums. We're far better off reserving these for Hospitals and Treatment Centres. I'd suggest that we all take a bit of responsibility for ourselves and stay away (and not create) large crowds rather than waiting to be told what to do by people who aren't going to be relying on the NHS beds like the majority of us. These Board Members will already have a deposit on a private Hospital bed if required. The crowd ban will be here any minute and in my opinion without an audience to entertain, the season has already ground to a halt.. we'll get use to it!
