London coronavirus patient turned up at hospital in Uber taxi

Life in the insane lane

Recall I posted the Guradian story about the 'infected' woman who took an Uber to the hospital. The "national ?health?" said that the Uber driver wasn't in contact long enough to catch the virus.

Well here's a similar story. So which is it? Super contagious or no-big-deal.???
Because lot's of northern hemisphere people take winter vacations in Hawaii --- it's prime surfing season too.

But the NYT reporter did find a local resident named John Fujiwara who believes the Japanese patient is a friend of his whom he refued to name. The man recently visited Hawaii and met Fujiwara for a coffee before exchanging gifts of chocolates.

Fujiwara said he reached out to a local paper and Hawaiian state health officials with his story. They told him not to panic, and when he offered to self-quarantine, the state said he should go about his day as normal, but report any suspicious symptoms.

Let's back up for a second: We suspect we're not the only ones who were surprised - and not exactly reassured - by the state's response to this man.

True, he could be wrong. But isn't it better to be safe than sorry when a simple one-line email from the state could have put this man in a self-quarantine?

Instead, the man says he plans to go out with his girlfriend as normal because he "has it in writing from the state."

"But Xi's communists seized the shipments and diverted them for use by more important persons."

According to various accounts, it's SOP for mainland China, unfortunately, and it is a major source of frustration for many around the world. All supplies and things like that are immediately grabbed by the CCP and sent to different places either for use by VIPs, or often for resale. Yeah, those medical masks that were sent with the best of humanitarian intentions might very well have been grabbed by some money-grubbing CCP crony to be sold on the open market for whatever they can get.

Boris Johnson to refuse to abide by EU rules on tax and workers' rights
Mr Johnson's negotiators are expected to insist that the UK should be given a deal akin to the EU's agreements with countries such as Canada
- the telegraph

Boris Johnson is preparing to dismiss demands by Brussels for the UK to abide by EU rules on tax and workers' rights after Brexit.

Number 10 is understood to object to a raft of stipulations in a draft negotiating mandate submitted to EU leaders by the European Commission - as senior Tories described some demands as "ridiculous".

losers and losers
Spoke with an aquaintance doing import buziness of made-in-china crap.

The short story is that IF things go as most ideally planned they wont be getting any crap until at least 4 weeks from now.

For example, she sent medical masks from canada to her chinese suppliers so that they could send workers to start working. But Xi's communists seized the shipments and diverted them for use by more important persons.

The government must "increase use of police force and strengthen the visible use of police" during the crisis, Xi said in a February 3 speech published by state media on Saturday.

Financial news outlet Caixin reported on Saturday that officials at the People’s Bank of China’s (PBOC) branch in the southern city ordered that all paper currency from sectors with high exposure to the coronavirus be withdrawn for destruction.
