  • Unlike some, I'm not "happy" that Boris Johnson has tested positive for the virus. However, I'm not exactly devastated, either. Think of it as the same cold indifference the Conservatives have shown all of us plebs over the last decade.

  • Whilst we are all on lockdown stuck in our homes confronted by daily media constantly pumping the “ truth” into our living rooms and we sit there absorbing it all completely paralysed with fear and distracted by it. What is getting pushed through the back door in way of law reforms whilst we are not paying attention? Wake up people!!!

  • Look at him. Ibvery much doubt anything is wrong with him at all. This virus..if they had if let the nation carry on and get sick, quickly ppl would have recovered, many wouldn't even get symptoms. The ones who did get effected would have been able to go to hospital, plenty of beds. However the media keep saying there's tonnes dead and many many ill…this is scary but also untrustworthy news. Whoever anyone speaks into in person…noone knows anyone ill, now it's flu season…people should be ill but no many healthy weirdly. The media keep saying loads dead. I know noone dead, no friends or family do. None of the international driver's at my work do either….that goes for the Italian driver too. All the ill and dying ..we only seem to see it in the media and online. Now we will get a few oh you miserable idiot. I know someone who's dying…oh how sorry I feel for you …so shy don't I know of anyone. Even my friends nurse friend who works in a hospital doesn't seem to have seen a case yet but what they got told it sounds manmade…..

  • Boris Johnson is so hypocritical. He tell us Brits to stay indoors and keep a 2 metre social distancing rule. Yet he's the one that's got it along with the Health Secretary becaus they were shaking hands with people, absolute Moron.. He can be tested for this virus but everyone else has to self isolate 😂😂😂 this country is screwed honestly with people like him in charge

  • Still remember their 60% herd immunity theory. How about stop sending resource to save elites like Johnson, healthy ministers, Prince, etc? That tells you a lot about the sick minds of the British ruling elites.

  • I'm saying this because if all I can do is express a crazy idea than that's something. If we could see Covid19 we would either clean it or avoid it. So my idea is creating a light spectrum that illuminates covid19 from its background. Then things can be cleaned properly and/or avoided. That is the answer at this stage.

  • They need to get the antibody test out as soon as possible. So that people can know if they have had it and can get on with life. It would help the economy to get as many people tested .
