Watching @UKParliament statement from @MattHancock.

Very glad to see collegiate approach from @JonAshworth & @MattHancock and great to see thanks to the Paymaster General, @NazShahBfd, @wesstreeting, @SayeedaWarsi, @BoardofDeputies the concerns on forced cremation have been met.
I'm concerned MPs who due to the outdated voting system are putting their health at risk as they need to scrutinise the #CoronavirusBillUK but should have been able to scrutinise this virtually. /1
I'm worried for all those there and think its mad that @MattHancock who looks ill is having to deal with people like @SteveBakerHW and @CarolineLucas who are being so rude to @MattHancock and the other MPs. /2

A friend just went to 4 asian countries. He's back now and self isolating. His comment

"In every country we passed through we were strictly monitored at the border for contagion. Including IR fever technology.
Except one.
The UK.
Checks were completely lacking."
@patel4witham is content to play politics at the home office while forgetting her day job is to manage border security.

@BorisJohnson is writing a book in the full knowledge that the day job is protecting the realm.

How countries respond in first days defines viral spread
This is what happens when you elect people who have learned nothing about delivery.

Instead these populist idiots have learned everything about politics, bigotry and rabble rousing...

Just what you don't need in a healthcare crisis.

#Coronvirusuk thread /1 Went to Italy on business last wk for 4 days. Was 200 miles from outbreak point so was UK Cat 2 risk: carry on unless you develop symptoms. That advice changed, Cat 2 scrapped. Pre-Italy I had cold'n'cough so better safe than sorry called 111 on Mon. /1
#Coronvirusuk thread /2 Took me 52 mins to get answer. Was asked about symptoms. I told them none apart from pre-existing cough. Told a clinician would phone me back. Asked same set of qs. Then told to go to A&E main reception at St Tommy's. I cycled: no taxi, no tube. 2/
#Coronvirusuk thread /3 A&E reception packed. Bad because I, a potential case, had to stand away from ordinary sick. When I got served given a mask and told to wait outside. I was relieved to do so. @NHS should create separate #Coronvirus C test entry points asap. #FOLLOWC /3
