Although I don't wish any harm to anyone, I am a bit against, wishing "him" (I don't mind if he, another politician, a football player or whatever else) all the best.
We should wish EVERYONE all the best, not only individuals.
This is hitting all of us, and he is just one more.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Whilst I wish all sufferers of the virus the best and a speedy recovery, I really do object to this man being put in intensive care "as a precautionary measure" (as reported on the BBC et al).
"He's received oxygen but not been put on a ventilator" - then get him out of ICU and give that bed to someone "less important" than the Prime Minister, who actually needs to be in ICU. Oxygen can be administered in the general wards - or the waiting area - or even at home - I know, I've seen it too many times.
Alternatively, if he really is ill enough to warrant being in the unit then the media need to stop reporting it as "precautionary" - because that will not sit well with bereaved families, or the families of the stricken who might think they're not getting the best treatment.
They're not doing a lot of reporting on his fiancee either - pregnant and also showing symptoms of covid-19 - I wish her the best and a speedy recovery too.
Sorry - no Soapbox any more. I'll grab my virtual coat.
With that country's sprawling informal settlements where hundreds of thousands of people live in close proximity, making social distancing nigh impossible, I fear for their future. Color me very concerned!
I wonder if Chris should just make a script aimed at me... You know... Because he doesn't want to work as hard for something that happens all the time.
