The government has brought patients from the corona virus-stricken cruise ship in Japan to the UK – and has driven them from their landing in Wiltshire to ‘quarantine’ them at Arrowe Park hospital in the Wirral on Merseyside.
Hundreds of patients were infected on the cruise liner, while a church in South Korea saw the virus transmitted to ‘dozens’ at a single service, demonstrating just how easily it passes among individuals. Both outbreaks have seen fatalities.
The cruise passengers are the second set of potentially-infectious returnees to be ‘quarantined‘ at the nurses’ accommodation of Arrowe Park.
Yet the UK’s version of ‘quarantine’ has been exposed, by the testimony of a quarantine patient, by footage of the patients transmitted on national news – and by the comments of the Department of Health itself:
Instead of a strict isolation and full protective measures, the Tories’ cavalier attitude is relying on patients to ‘self-isolate’ by wearing masks that medical experts believe are not an effective barrier to the transmission of viruses – and the Department of Health admits it.
The people of Merseyside and of the UK are depending on the government doing a proper job with this ‘quarantine’ to protect us from a highly infection disease that has killed large numbers of people.
The evidence suggests we are all being failed.
