I was Skyping a Poland-based colleague today and we were discussing the crisis. He confirmed that last week Poland suffered with panic buying too but says this week it's all settled down and shelves are well stocked again. Fingers crossed we'll see the same pattern here.

Do you want to change the title to this post Saus to “Poland’s pro-active, sensible reaction to the coronavirus”?

My friends in Poland have just moved out of Warsaw to their parents in the countryside because a relative who is a captain in the army has said the govt are considering using the army to lockdown Warsaw entirely.

They should lock down Nottingham and Sheffield:  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/m...o-skegness

Skeg has 25,000 people but the largest caravan/mobile home type estates in Europe - rising to 200,000 people at the height of the season.  I suppose stupid behaviour is to be expected from such a fucking shower.

Little extreme I thought considering they've only had 30 cases in total country wide.

The issue is this was always going to spread. There was data to show how contagious it was so if there are 30 cases country wide and nothing is being done that number will increase, and it's much easier to contain a virus with 30 cases than one with 300.

What's the point in waiting for an arbitrary number of cases or deaths to occur before taking action? It makes no sense.

Since this post, 13 days have passed and in Poland the number of deaths is 8.

In the UK, in the 13 days after we reached 30 cases, there were 22 deaths. Almost treble the amount. There was also an increase in 800 cases, despite the fact that people only get tested in the most severe cases in the UK.

Looks a lot more sensible than our approach now doesn’t it?
