I thinks it's easier with small numbers and a wide distribution of people. I've heard there are more lambs in MZ than humans - I don't know if this is a joke or true though.
What's the testing situation out there? What tests are you using? UK is a joke.
Every country could have done more to prepare.
I was watching GMTV today and Dr Hillary Jones mentioned that it was thought because SARS and MERS were not as widespread and fewer deaths, the UK authorities thought this would be the same.
There was definitely complacency there.
The country has never been through something like this before so would not have a clue how to handle this.
But it also poses other consequences.
There are people like journalists like Peter Hitchens who think we are over exaggerating the impact of Covid-19 and the taking of drastic measures like lockdown could cause more deaths because the economy would crash.
