Breaking: Italy considering NATIONAL quarantine in response to coronavirus

The Italian government is considering putting the whole country into national quarantine in response to the coronavirus epidemic, according to an ABC News journalist in the country.

James Longman reported the development and its scale in the last few minutes:

The UK is approximately two weeks behind Italy in its number of cases and rate of spread and so far has taken none of Italy’s strict measures to slow the epidemic – on the contrary, it is not even screening travellers returning from northern Italian hotspots – suggesting that the UK may take less time to catch up.

  1. This crisis underlines the tragedy that occurred on 12th December last year – the WRONG Government and beyond a doubt the WRONG Prime Minister.

    Jeremy Corbyn would have been a million times more effective in defending the UK population against Coronavirus. And yet this was a man whose patriotism was so often called into question by toerags not fit to lick his boots. Scandalously many of these were in his own party.

    We can only hope that the grave error of making Boris Toilet Brush our de facto head of state does not result in pandemic deaths in the tens or even hundreds of thousands. Clearly he cares nothing for the people, only for the mega-rich and the corporations.

    So bloody sorry to see Corbyn on the verge of relinquishing his Labour Party leadership and preparing for backbench anonymity once more. He is truly the greatest Prime Minister we never had.

    Just thinking about it makes me want to weep!!
