UK To Ask Citizens Over 70 To Self – Isolatate For 4 MONTHS As Coronavirus Fails To Kill Zillions

by Ian R Thorpe

First of al can I say That I’m over 70 and I’ve no intention of self isolating for more than four hours. I know several attractive women half my age who are struggling to pay their rent and might welcome the chance to move into my spare bedroom.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock today confirmed the government plans to ask (or probably coerce,) people aged over 70 to isolate themselves  from society for up to four months amid a coronavirus pandemic. The goal is to protect them, but critics say it may be a really bad idea.

It’s quite obvious to us, experience bloggers and lifelong cynics that we are, that the government, civil service, law enforcement and national security agencies and all the assorted experts, pundits and talking heads have forgotten the lesson our generation learned from The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy:

Isolating the elderly is “clearly in the action plan” Health Secretary Matt Hancock has told Sky News, confirming suspicions that the government and its advisors are in full panic mode. Reports in the British media over the past few days have predicted the government would advise older people to stay in their homes for a while ….. but four months? That could be a life sentence for some of us.

“We will be setting out more detail when it’s the right time to do,” Hancock added, which may mean within days or a few weeks down the line.

“We absolutely appreciate that it is a very big ask of the elderly and the vulnerable, and it’s for their own self-protection,” Hancock told Sky News reporter Sophy Ridge.

To date Britain has 1,140 confirmed cases of the Covid-19 disease, with the death toll standing at 21, both statistics being way below the numbers for seasonal ‘flu or sepsis. According to medical professionals elderly people have shown to be more vulnerable to the virus, as they are more likely to develop serious symptoms. This is a misunderstanding of statistics of course as healthy elderly people are no more likely to develop serious symptoms from the infection. It is true to say that elderly people are more likely to die of coronavirus, but then it’s also true to say that elederly people are more likely to die. End of story. Literally.

The British government has been criticized for its response to the coronavirus epidemic, which up to this latest panic measure was based on spreading fear and panic building up “herd immunity,” rather than restraining the spread of the virus. That approach assumed those who developed the infection and recovered would have some immunity, though there is as yet little evidence of that.

The plan to have elderly people isolated for months on end is a bad idea as they have to have contact with the outside world to get food, attend medical appointments and so on, it also subjects them to increased risks of depression and other problems, some critics of the idea say.
