  • Apple says it wasn't told about UK contact tracing app issues, plans

    Surprise surprise, once again the UK government tries to go it alone and messes up. Then it claims it’s cooperating with others and those others claim otherwise. Just like how they claimed they’ve been consulting with the devolved nations during Brexit (they haven’t) and how they consulted with healthcare providers before suddenly announcing dental surgeries were to reopen (they hadn’t) and how they’d agreed the timetable for schools to reopen in England with local education boards (they hadn’t). 

    This app has been a disaster from the start. Thankfully we have no use for it in Scotland. This is England’s mess
    So when did Scotland opt out of the NHS?  Somehow, I think this is your mess, too, whether you had a hand in it or not.
    Er...Scotland has had its own NHS since before the formation of the UK one in 1948. Someone needs to get educated...

    The U.K. is an embarrassment so far in its response to Covid-19.  
    Add this to the list. Every decision whether it was access to tests/lockdown/borders/protective equipment etc ... too little and very late. 

    We needed that app weeks ago here in the U.K. in combination with a viable and frequent test service. 

    Our economy is ruined , & thousands of unnecessary deaths which could have been prevented. The general public here still can’t get access to tests unless carted off to hospital. It’s a disgrace. 

    There is a reason countries like New Zealand did so well. 

    All I can say is whilst the U.K. is terrible it looks like there are plenty of countries making equally bad decisions. 
    Thats not what the majority of the British public think with the British Government having record approval ratings on top if its huge election win in December.
    Its interesting that a Kings College, London and Ipsos Mori poll showed that that those attacking the governement and/or not oberserving social-distancing laws were either Labour Party supporters or Remoaners - which is applicable to you?

    The UK is ahead of Belgium, Spain, Italy, and France in minimising the number of deaths per million population. This is despite the fact that the UK has the highest population density in Europe, which makes social-distancing more difficult and infection spread easier.

    Whereas New Zeland has one of the lowest population densities on the planet...
    The Scottish public think otherwise...and the date backs up the fact that the UK has one of the highest death rates as is and has gerrymandered the data even further so it doesn't include those that die in care homes or anywhere that's not in a hospital. Save your propaganda for the Daily Mail et al...
